Lee Daniels Talks About Using Mariah Carey to Raise Money for 'Precious' (VIDEO)

Lee Daniels Talks About Using Mariah Carey for MoneyThe movie 'Precious' was a surprise hit this past year, being nominated for and winning a host of year-end awards, as well as earning a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for star Mo'Nique.

On 'The Wendy Williams Show' (weekdays, syndicated), Lee Daniels -- the director of 'Precious' -- revealed his secret for raising money to make the film. Whenever funding was running short, he would have Mariah Carey come over to his house and sing for potential investors. And, according to Daniels, he asked her to make sure to "show your ta-tas ... with diamonds." Good to know.

Patti Labelle appeared on 'The Wendy Williams Show' (weekdays, syndicated) and talked about the perks of being Mariah Carey's godmother. According to Labelle, Carey regularly sends her pricey champagne and flowers, and the two often party together in the Bahamas.

"She sends me four bottles of Cristal ... and she sends me beautiful white flowers, like 100 or 200 flowers," Labelle said. "It's just beautiful."

Most Awkward Award Show Moments (VIDEO)

by Mike Scalise, posted Jan 8th 2010 4:00PM
First she did a twirly hug, then made an odd, slurry joke about a kitten, spoke at a rate of about one word per minute and seemed to have her own personal hype man ('Precious' director Lee Daniels). And what did we do while we watched Mariah Carey's acceptance speech for Breakthrough Actress at last weekend's Palm Springs Film Festival?

We winced. We cringed. Then we watched it again.

Carey's, uh, loosened speech was the first genuinely awkward moment this award show season, but there were many actors, filmmakers, and musicians before her who've heard their name called, stepped to the podium, and made things a little weird for everyone.

Mariah Carey stumbles at People's Choice Awards

Mariah Carey stumbles at People's Choice Awards 2010Dear Mariah Carey,

I know that you're a big diva, and that you like being a big diva and will do just anything to keep that persona going. But it just seems to me that if you're going to an awards show where you might possibly be walking onstage to accept an award, you should have a dress and shoes you can walk in.

Maybe you like having hubby Nick Cannon help you onstage, like he did at last night's People's Choice Awards. Maybe he likes it. Maybe it helps the whole diva thing -- "ooh, I can't even move without someone helping me." But it's not really doing much for your image. Come to think of it, neither is your drunk speech at the Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards a couple of nights ago.

Mariah Carey Talks Eminem Feud on 'Late Show with David Letterman' (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Nov 16th 2009 12:05PM
Mariah Carey had plenty to say on 'The Late Show with David Letterman' about her long-standing feud with rapper Eminem. The feud dates back to 2001 and includes public insults, dis-filled songs, and even allegations by Eminem that he was in possession of explicit voicemails left by Carey.

"He continuously references me. I don't know why. So, I wrote a song that's really an anthem for all little girls ... who get their ponytail pulled or get abused because the boy really is in love with them and they can't be with them," Carey told Letterman, referring to her single 'Obsessed.' "The song is not about anybody, and yet it could be about anybody."

What's Hot on SlashControl: Mariah Carey falls for Jay Leno

by Jane Boursaw, posted Nov 4th 2009 4:02PM
On Monday's episode of The Jay Leno Show, Mariah Carey made quite the entrance, taking a little stumble on her way out to meet the talk show host. I've always wondered how the heck she walks in those super high heels, but since it's all you ever see her wearing, she gets plenty of practice. In this clip from SlashControl, she doesn't blame the heels themselves, but rather a strap that broke backstage. That would be a shoe strap, not the other kind.

And speaking of that, it's a good thing Mariah didn't fall any further than she did, or there would have been some major wardrobe malfunctions going on. With the dangerous combo of high heels and that massive chest, it's a wonder she can stay upright at all. Oh, come on. You know you're thinking the same thing. Nick Cannon is either a very happy guy, or a very tortured guy who puts up with the diva for, uh, his own personal reasons.

Mariah Carey Trips on 'The Jay Leno Show' (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Nov 3rd 2009 11:10AM
While wearing what barely qualifies as a dress, Mariah Carey has a shoe malfunction and trips on 'The Jay Leno Show' as she makes her way to the interview chair.

Carey later joked during the interview the stumble was choreographed in order to to make Leno nervous. And perhaps as a further way to distract Leno and the audience from her two left feet, Carey demonstrates the appropriate way to seductively apply perfume. Pay close attention to Leno's flustered response.

America's Got Talent Top 40 list

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Jul 30th 2009 8:30PM
America's Got Talent
This past week, we were treated to two rather cruel and evil "Vegas Verdicts" episodes of America's Got Talent. During those two episodes, judges reviewed the auditions and chose who would be part of the Top 40. Many fans, me included, are angry at some of the choices the judges made. They let people with no talent be part of the Top 40 while some with amazing acts were sent packing.

It was impossible, after watching the two episodes, to come up with the exact list of the Top 40. TV Squad reader Aml commented on my review of last night's episode that the numbers didn't add up and it looked like the judges picked a Top 37 rather than 40, meaning that the Simon Cowell curve ball we are waiting for next week may be that more acts need to be added.

Well, NBC just released the Top 40 list.

America's Got Talent: Audition show 8

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon
(S04E08) "They will let anybody on this show. Why?" - Nick after seeing a bad act

Haven't you watched the show before, Nick? Didn't your agent tell you what the series was all about before you signed on the dotted line? America's Got Talent is all about everyday people showcasing their talents. And, as it is the case for American Idol, anyone and everyone can audition, meaning that the audition episodes will be filled with bad acts performed by people who should have stayed home.

Tonight's installment featured an excerpt of Mariah Carey's new music video for the song "Obsessed." The song is not too bad, but I miss "Vision of Love" Mariah with the bigger vocals and usage of her full and impressive voice range. The clip, even if we didn't see it in its entirety (it may have aired fully in your area), seemed to be entertaining enough to air a million times on MTV in the next month. In case you missed the announcement, Mariah, aka AGT's host Nick Cannon's wife, will perform live on the show during the August 5 result episode.

Now onto comments about tonight's acts, including links to see more from some of the performers!

Mariah Carey to perform on America's Got Talent

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Jul 15th 2009 3:00PM
Mariah Carey on America's Got TalentI don't know if it was part of Nick Cannon's hosting contract with America's Got Talent to have his wife appear on the show this summer, but the producers were able to not only get the world premiere of Mariah Carey's new video "Obsessed" tonight on the show, as I hinted last night in my "Audition show 7" review, but she will also do a live performance in August.

Then again, since Mariah Carey will soon release a new album, titled "Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel," it makes perfect sense that she would do a promotion tour and perform on the "world's biggest talent show competition" to help boost her sales.

America's Got Talent: Audition show 7

America's Got Talent(S04E07) "You didn't even give me a chance!" - Contestant David Glass after being Xed three times and booed by the crowd

The judges may not have given David Glass a chance -- they were right not to do so -- but they did give a free pass to another contestant who didn't have the goods to go on to Las Vegas. Even if the producers will never admit to it, you must agree that it looks like producers have the judges vote through a certain number of bad and wacky acts so that viewers tune in for Vegas Week to see if the judges will be crazy enough to vote those to the Top 20.

Tonight's episode gave us another reason why America's Got Talent should not let individual singers audition since a lot go move on to the later rounds, making it look like another version of American Idol. This week, they not only let through a few singers, they also let through Idol's season one contestant Kelli Glover.

Dance Battle! Crews will face off on the Teen Choice Awards

by Kristin Sample, posted Jul 24th 2008 7:03AM
Miley Cyrus hugs a surfboard. The Teen Choice Awards will feature a dance battle between two of the toughest, roughest, street-est (not a word, I know) dance crews around. No, Lil C and his crew won't be there crumping. Miley Cyrus and Mandy Jiroux's M&M Cru will battle ACDC, the dance crew featuring Jon M. Chu and Adam Sevani of Step Up 2: The Streets. The two crews are BFFs and they challenged each other back in April. A more heated rivalry has not been seen since TuPac and Biggie. Yeah! Totally street. "Street" is even in the name of the movie.

The Teen Choice Awards have some other performers and appearances lined up too. But they're not "street" so who cares? Shia LaBeouf, David Archuleta, James Marsden, Sophia Bush, Josh Holloway, Scarlett Johansson, Zac Efron, Pink, JoJo, Kristen Bell, and Hayden Panettiere are some of the other names previously announced. Mariah Carey is slated to perform her new single, "I'll Be Lovin' You Long Time."

The Teen Choice Awards will air on August 4th at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.

AI7 Report Card: The season that was

by Jason Hughes, posted May 27th 2008 1:03PM
AI7 Top 12We scoured the earth (and the archives at various record companies for failed projects that showed vocal promise) to create the greatest assemblage of singing talent American Idol has ever seen! So what happened? After last year's virtual snooze-fest, how did a season that truly did give us perhaps the greatest depth of talent we've ever seen (an argument could be made for Season Five) give us such lackluster shows?

After Sanjaya-gate last year, the biggest controversy to come out this year was that finalist David Hernandez used to be a stripper and David Archuleta's dad might be a Mr. Meany-Pants. And we got to be pissed that Kristy Lee Cook outlasted the likes of Michael Johns. Not until we got to the finale of Davids did things get really intense.

Five annoying American Idol cliches

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 29th 2008 1:20PM
American Idol JudgesThe fine folks over at AOL Television put together their "11 Biggest American Idol Cliches," but as the self-proclaimed guru of all things Idol, I figured my legions of fan (yes it's singular on purpose) are clamoring for my take. You have to figure that after nearly eight years on the air any show is going to rack up it's long, long list of annoying things.

And yet, I don't get nearly as annoyed when Jeff Probst yells "Come on in guys. [Team A] getting their first look at the new [Team B]. [Contestant Name] voted out at the last tribal council," even though he does it every single week. "[Team members], you're the last team to arrive. I'm sorry to tell you that you've both been eliminated from The Amazing Race." No big deal. So why do Ryan, Simon and the gang at American Idol drive us so crazy week after week?
