[ione_embed src=https://www.youtube.com/embed/EGWN-rosVZo service=youtube width=1680 height=1050 type=iframe]

The E! Mariah’s World star, Mariah Carey continues to push her new hit single “I Don’t” and took her talents to the Jimmy Kimmel Live stage to perform the trending track along with West Coast rapper, YG.

Laced in a cleavage-driven red dress and YG in a tailored white suit and sneakers paired no shirt, the duo planted their foot right into the beat with MC proving that she could recover from the New Year’s Eve fiasco.

Rumor has it that Mariah and Bryson Tiller may be collaborating soon, as Jermaine Dupri says that the “Trapsoul” singer is totally down.

Mariah Carey feat. YG – “I Don’t” [New Video]

[ione_embed src=https://www.youtube.com/embed/oiQ68AW0LMY service=youtube width=583 height=328 type=iframe]

After Mariah Carey‘s failed engagement it seems the veteran songstress has a lot to get off of her chest. Debuting her new visual and single titled “I Don’t,” Carey is letting it be known that she has moved on to bigger and better things.

The song and video feature Compton, California rapper YG who joins Mimi inside a huge mansion, and then later in the driveway sprawled out in a convertible Phantom.

Switching from a wedding dress to lingerie and a red strappy dress, MC eventually sets her old wedding dress on fire as she sings the song to the Donnell Jones sampled track. The official song was produced by Jermaine Dupri and Bryan-Michael Cox.

As the star of Mariah’s World plans on dropping singles throughout the year, we can’t wait to see what she has in-store as she may dedicate her next body of work to her new beau, dancer, and creative director, Bryan Tanaka.

Be sure to catch Mariah on tour starting March 15 with Lionel Richie as they make their first stop in Baltimore.

Finger Pointing: Dick Clark Productions Call Mariah Carey’s Team’s Claims of Sabotage ‘Absurd’.

Mariah Carey’s team is doing their absolute best to prove that Mariah did the best she could to salvage her disastrous performance on New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest.

Mariah responded in a very diva way of course to her poor showing by tweeting “shit happens”.

The blame game would soon follow ushering the first celebrity drama of the new year. Carey’s manager, Stella Bulochnikov, issued a statement to Billboard Maganzine putting the blame on DCP (Dick Clark Productions) and claiming they wanted “eyeballs at any expense”. Here is the full statement issued to Billboard:

“We told them [the stage managers] that the in-ears were not working 10 minutes before the performance,” Bulochnikov says. “They then changed the battery pack, and they were still not working on the frequency four minutes before the show. We let them know again, and they just kept counting her down and reassuring her that they will work as soon as they go live, which never happened — at which point she pulled them out but could not hear the music over the crowd.

After the show, I called [Dick Clark Productions’] Mark Shimmel and I said, ‘What the f— happened?’ He said, ‘Let me call you back,’ then called me back and confirmed the in-ears were not working and asked if I would make a joint statement. I said, ‘No way.’ I asked him to cut the West Coast feed. He said he could not do that. I asked him why would they want to run a performance with mechanical glitches unless they just want eyeballs at any expense … It’s not artist friendly, especially when the artist cut her vacation short as a New Year’s Eve gift to them.”

DCP responded back to the claims by Carey’s camp on Sunday basically refuting their accusations of “sabotage” :

“As the premier producer of live television events for nearly 50 years, we pride ourselves on our reputation and long-standing relationships with artists. To suggest that dcp, as producer of music shows including the American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, New Year’s Rockin’ Eve and Academy of Country Music Awards, would ever intentionally compromise the success of any artist is defamatory, outrageous and frankly absurd. In very rare instances there are of course technical errors that can occur with live television, however, an initial investigation has indicated that dcp had no involvement in the challenges associated with Ms. Carey’s New Year’s Eve performance. We want to be clear that we have the utmost respect for Ms. Carey as an artist and acknowledge her tremendous accomplishments in the industry.”

TMZ’s ‘Dick Clark sources’ tells them that Carey’s “sabotage” claims are “silly” and pointed out that the singer opted to not to do a sound check, and had a stand-in. They also claim that the 8 monitors on stage were amplifying sound, so without here inner-ear she should have been fine. They also tell TMZ that Carey changed her story when she initially stated the track was wrong and that her camp provided the tracklist.

Where both parties are in agreement is that Mariah’s in-ears were not working that night but who should take majority of the blame for the lackluster performance is up in the air. To be honest both Mariah and DCP both took a tremendous L that night and her performance pretty much summed up the year 2016. There was one silver lining out the incident though the tweets that followed:

 

2017 is off to a hilarious start! Who do you believe FLY ones?

Nick Cannon Dishes About His Split With Mariah Carey, and Gets Candid About His and Kevin Hart’s Success [Video]

He might be the hardest working guy in Hollywood. Host-comedian-network exec Nick Cannon sits down with Larry King on the multi-Emmy nominated series Larry King Now, where he gets candid about his and Kevin Hart’s success, fatherhood and his split from Mariah Carey. Plus, the multi-hyphenate explains why he isn’t impressed with either presidential candidate, and offers Larry his perspective on life after death.

The comedian confesses that he had no idea his close friend Kevin Hart would become one of the world’s biggest comedians. He says, “I didn’t know myself or him would reach the levels that we’ve reached,” and fondly recalls a time when they were young comics “just telling jokes for dinner.”

Nick Cannon opens up about his split from Mariah Carey, and how he and his ex-wife manage co-parenting their twins, Moroccan and Monroe. He admits, “We all love Mariah, and she’s outstanding, and you know how some of these things, they don’t work out in the way you thought they were gonna work out.” But, Nick Cannon reveals that they are all on good terms, saying “it was probably best for our family to remain a family, first and foremost.”

Nick Cannon, who is tired of seeing slave films, tells Larry he plans to make a $200 million “African epic” that celebrates black history. He says, “I feel like that’s something that’s constantly perpetuated and pushed forward and it’s like ok, we get it. You know, to me personally, I like to receive my history from books, I don’t really want to see actors acting it out and studios profiting off, you know, the bloodshed of slavery.”

Plus, Nick Cannon sounds off on both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, revealing “I don’t trust them.” He also offers a conspiracy theory about Clinton and admits that this presidential race “says so much about who we are as a country.”

Do you agree with Nick?

Nick Cannon Surfaces With A Reaction To Mariah Carey’s Engagement To James Packer

nick-cannon-mariah

As social media eyes and ears were trolling, we’re sure everyone was waiting for a response from Nick Cannon due to the sudden news of Mariah Carey‘s engagement to James Packer.

READ: THE WORD: MARIAH CAREY ENGAGED TO BILLIONAIRE JAMES PACKER

In case you missed it, billionaire businessman James Packer finally went on bended knee and proposed a huge 35 carat diamond rock to Grammy-winning songstress Mariah.

Nick filed divorce papers after six years of marriage back in December 2014. Since the filing, there were a few hiccups and rough exchanges between the two. But now, things are much more smooth, as the two are very supportive co-parents to their 4-year-old twins, son Moroccan and daughter Monroe.

With the proposal hitting the net this week, memes came out of thin air and Nick just happen to find one that he thought was quite hilarious.

The meme placed was a screenshot of his comedian cohort Kevin Hart and himself on the set of BET‘s reality show Real Husbands of Hollywood. The main caption up top says: “It’s just a ring Nick…..”.

Nick thought it was very funny and decided to repost the meme.

Ha! This made me laugh out loud for real!!! HILARIOUS! #AllLove
Congrats to @MariahCarey and James!
May God Bless Your Future Union… #GreatPeople #GreatCouple

A source told E! News:

“Nick is happy for them. Nick’s children like Packer and he treats them well, so that’s what he cares about. Nick is on very good terms with Carey. Nick is really just focused on his career at the moment.”

In good spirits it was definitely a nice gesture on his part. A very #GrownManStatus for Nick.

Congrats to Mariah again and Nick for giving the “thumbs up” to their new beginnings!

Fly Visual: Amen-Ra – “Finished”

amen-ra-finished

Known to have choreographed for many of your favorite artists (Mariah Carey, Jay-Z, Sting, Kelly Rowland and Trey Songz), Bam Bam moves over to the solo side of things as Amen-Ra, as he now expresses his art form as a singer-songwriter, paired with his heavy knowledge of the entertainment industry, along with his dance background.

“Finished” is his first official-single delivery from his new EP F.I.N.A.O. [Failure Is Not An Option], which is a complete radio ready, dance head-nodder. Recently, the artist-newcomer unleashed his new video just to give you a glimpse of what his new-found artistry is all about.

For my first EP, and intro to the world as an artist, it had to be explosive. So, I kept it short and sweet with six songs; all up-tempo, high energy, big production…”Finished,” “I Does This,” “Music Is My Drug,” “We Run This Party,” “On my Own Ish” and “Party Of A Lifetime”.

Amen-Ra also says:

“My style is inspirational; I want you to feel alive, and have fun in the moment because life is too short. I feel like I can give a connection that is mad real. It’s like a connection to everyday life of who we are. I plan to be a whole different type of animal. I want to make this a better world for future generations; I want to inspire and be inspired. I want to enjoy life, and see others enjoy life too.”
