That’s a wrap on Mimi at American Idol auditions! Last night the final search for contestants ended in Oklahoma City. Did it end with a bang? Not really. It ended with a glance, Mariah looking up at another mediocre wannabe, as she does, and having basically nothing to say. Here’s the thing about Mariah though, she never promised your dreams could come true. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

30 Rock ends tonight. Most of the time when shows end, they promote it so hard, the ending of it, that by the time it actually ends you’re thrilled that it’s finally ended. Why has the end of 30 Rock seemed so quiet?

“It’s not funny anymore and the last few seasons sucked and it’s about time for it to be over,” rag, rag, rag, rag, rag.

This though is my favourite piece, so far, on the series finale, honouring a show that, well, wasn’t considered “successful” enough to leave a legacy. That’s...actually kind of OK. Tonight it will be Tina Fey > Mimi. Although last night, because I was packing, I totally forgot about Mimi’s American Idol. Until Lo messaged me with this photo -- see below. For shame! Why would anyone prioritise travel preparation over Mimi? I turned on the DVR immediately to watch Mimi turn every contestant tragedy into an opportunity to talk about the adversities she’s been able to overcome.

Yours in gossip,

I don’t know. I don’t care. It doesn’t matter. Just look. Look at our Mimi in New York today wearing... a sports bra and a long skirt under a leather jacket. Heels, of course. While a security guard holds her hand. It was a good day.  Full Story

“Burnell, you made me cry!” *Randy Jackson voice* Yo for me, dawg, for me, Burnell Taylor’s audition in Baton Rouge last night, THIS is the most interesting moment of Mimi on Idol so far! Here’s the thing about Mariah on Idol - she can act so self-obsessed and deluded that it’s very easy to forget sometimes that she possesses, or at least once possessed, a truly rare and exquisite gift. Full Story

American Idol, Season 12, Episode 1 recap. (Lainey: Dean thinks the Mimi-Minaj drama is a fraud. I, as you know, think it’s legit. But I suck at recaps, and Dean’s more advanced at Mimi knowledge than I am. So here’s the first installment of what’s becoming the best show in the history of television. Full Story

Last fall, when the Mimi vs Nicki Minaj drama first blew up during American Idol auditions, I wrote that Mimi was outplaying Nicki and that Nicki needed a proper Bitch Coach. Click here for a refresher. You can’t lose your sh-t on Twitter and win against the Mimi. Full Story

If you’ve looked through these photos, you need no explanation. If not, by the end of this article, you will too love life. American Idol panelled on TCA yesterday featuring all judges, including, yes, Mimi and Nicki Minaj. And, well, journalists at the TCA, especially at panel sessions, don’t always have to kiss ass. Full Story

This is the idea. Here’s our Mimi on the beach in Australia after performing three shows there over the holidays. She’s home now but this photo was released yesterday, just making sure you know that she’s fit...if, ahem, you believe that this image is completely untouched. Guess what? Just one more week. Full Story

Joyful Joyful!

I know it’s supposed to be Lauryn Hill and the St Francis Choir and it’s blasphemy for me to suggest imagining Mimi as the subject of the song but... Look at her. Our Mimi. Look at her and tell me, don’t these lyrics apply? Clearly as the sun above Melts the clouds of sin and sadness Drive the dark of doubt away Giver of immortal gladness Fill us with the light Fill us with the light Oh fill us with the light of day It is Christmas. Full Story

GOD, did I need her today. Nothing stresses me out more than when I can’t get online. I’ve been cranky this morning. And then... Sunshine. My darling sunshine... Mimi, obviously. As I wrote the other day, it’s not really Christmas until Mimi’s in Aspen squished into a snowsuit and tottering on the ice in stilettos. Full Story
