Was the Justin Bieber & Mariah Carey 'All I Want for Christmas' Video Too Risque for NBC Tree Lighting?

by Alex Moaba, posted Dec 1st 2011 11:15AM
Justin Bieber and Mariah Carey debuted their video for the remake of 'All I Want for Christmas Is You' during NBC's Rockefeller Center tree lighting ceremony on Wednesday night, a move that's already drawing the ire of viewers who tuned into the festivities hoping for family-friendly programming.

The video features Carey singing in a skimpy Santa costume and getting close with Bieber, who's showcasing his new, lower-singing voice. Although there's nothing any more objectionable in the video than standard MTV fare, the awkward spectacle made some NBC viewers uncomfortable. Whether it was because of the age difference between the 41-year-old Carey and the 17-year-old Bieber, or because of Bieber's paternity controversy with another Mariah, it appears the Peacock network may have ruffled some feathers.

Rosie O'Donnell Remembers Meeting Mariah Carey When She Was 'Little, Little' (VIDEO)

Mariah Carey, 'The Rosie Show'If you were able to look back through your history, there's a chance you had a brush with someone famous, only it happened before they were famous. Rosie O'Donnell encountered a beautiful little girl named Mariah years ago, as she explained on 'The Rosie Show' (Weeknights, 7PM ET on OWN). Even after Mariah Carey blew up on the music scene, O'Donnell didn't make the connection.

It wasn't until someone pointed out that Carey had grown up on a certain street that O'Donnell realized it was the same little girl she used to sing to at the bus stop. It's just kind of crazy to imagine what some of the people you've encountered along the way may have gone on and done with their lives -- and you don't even know you knew them way back when.

Simon Cowell Previews 'The X-Factor,' Reveals Guest Judge (VIDEO)

by AOL TV Staff, posted Sep 15th 2011 11:00PM
Less than a week before 'X-Factor' makes its season debut on Fox, entertainment reporter Julie Chang of 'Good Day New York' (weekdays, 9AM ET on Fox) caught up with Simon Cowell at the show's red carpet premiere event. Cowell compared the experience of starting on a new show to his beginnings with 'American Idol' and revealed a celebrity judge.

Chang said Cowell looked "like a new man," and asked him if he had more invested in the new show, since its one he had created. "Well, it's like starting all over again," he said. "When I came here ten years ago, it was a similar feeling. I had no idea what was going to happen. But I did like the show. And this is kind of the same feeling. It's a different show. I've enjoyed it. I don't know what's going to happen. So it's exciting."

Chang also overhead other interviews in which Cowell said Rihanna will be a guest judge, which Cowell confirmed. It was supposed to be Mariah Carey, but circumstances conspired against her. "She couldn't judge because of the hurricane, but I found someone bigger," he said. Hopefully he wasn't planning on asking Carey back.

Mariah Carey Freaked Out on 'TRL' 10 Years Ago Today

by Jean Bentley, posted Jul 19th 2011 9:00AM
Mariah Carey, TRLBetween Mariah Carey's high-profile marriage to Nick Cannon, her respected indie movie acting career and her still-successful singing career, it's hard to remember the days when Carey was the go-to crazy celebrity punchline.

But yet we all remember that fateful day 10 years ago (yes, an entire decade has passed), on July 19, 2001, when our lady Mariah pushed an ice cream cart onto the 'TRL' stage, took off her shirt and freaked Carson Daly out.

Today we take a moment to appreciate Mariah's pioneering of the ol' hospitalization for "exhaustion" excuse -- a life before bald Britney Spears became the face of public star meltdowns, when Lindsay Lohan was still the cute redhead from 'The Parent Trap.'

Watch the (extremely low-quality, sorry) incident below, thank the butterflies that she's okay now and tell us: where were you when Mariah had her on-camera meltdown?

Nick Cannon Jokes About Mariah Carey and Their Twins in the Delivery Room (VIDEO)

Nick Cannon, 'Lopez Tonight'If George Lopez was hoping to talk to Nick Cannon, the excited new father of twins on 'Lopez Tonight' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on TBS), he may have been disappointed. Instead, he got Nick Cannon the comedian, talking about his experiences in that delivery room with wife Mariah Carey.

Of course, we suspect that's exactly what they were looking for, and it was funny. But we still don't know what happened.

We suspect this part didn't: "I had a camera in one hand, I had the iPod in the other, the video camera, the doctor was holding the light for me," Cannon said. "I was like, 'Get that angle.'"

Nick Cannon Expecting Twins, Will Tone Down Risky Behavior (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Apr 28th 2011 6:10PM
Nick Cannon on 'The Talk'Nick Cannon is a tad preoccupied these days, what with his wife Mariah Carey about to give birth to twins. Today on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS), he wondered why he was even there instead of at home tending to Carey, whom he said is "ready to just pop." Bags are packed, and he's ready to go. And ready for a big change in his life, including taking fewer risks.

He spoke of a shoot for 'America's Got Talent' for which he was riding in a hot air balloon, and found himself realizing what was at stake should something go wrong. "The only thing separating me and the ground was a wicker basket," he said. "I looked down. At that moment, I was like, I can't do this anymore. You know what I mean? A good gust of wind and my children might never meet their father."

So, would Carey be mad at him for such a stunt? It's all right, said Cannon, "She doesn't know." At least, she didn't until this morning. Seems like she might be free to take in some daytime television.

Mariah Carey Sees 'Ultrasound' on 'Lopez Tonight'Mariah Carey admitted it was difficult to get out of bed for 'Lopez Tonight' (weeknights, 11PM ET on TBS), but George Lopez had a surprise to make it worth her while.

"Mariah Carey has been kind enough to bring ultrasound footage of her baby," he said. But as Carey rolled her eyes and said, "Uh-oh," it was obviously a joke she wasn't in on.

Her "ultrasound" flashed onscreen, with the fetus wearing headphones and holding a microphone. And wait, is that a twin? No, it's the personal assistant. Carey smiled and said, "That's very cute," but didn't seem especially amused.

Mariah CareyIs America ready for a weekly dose of Mariah Carey? According to the New York Post, Simon Cowell is interested in signing the songstress as a judge on the American version of his hit British talent competition series, 'X Factor.'

Cowell has reportedly been pushing for British pop star Cheryl Cole to get a place at his American 'X Factor' table, but Fox has been reluctant given Cole's somewhat low celebrity profile in the US.

"Look, I've said I'd love Cheryl out there but whether it will happen, who knows?" Cowell told the News of the World. "Mariah Carey would be an amazing addition to the US show," he said. "And she's exactly the right caliber of star that we want for the show."
