Tomorrow evening, New York City is honoring hometown girl Mariah Carey by lighting up the Empire State Building lavender, pink and white (of course) to celebrate her latest chart-topping album E=MC2. For the entire weekend, the New York landmark will be lit up to celebrate the number one selling female artist of all time. We got to thinking about some other monuments that could be tweaked to honor Mimi. Take the jump to find out what else should get Mariah’d.
After Tuesday’s train wreck, how would the six Idol hopefuls fare? The musical theater songs of Sir Andrew Lord Webber, as the judges rightly noted, are more complex than most of the pop hits the contestants have so far taken on; the bigger voices carried the night, and the more musically adept performers seemed closest to making it to the next round. But how would America vote?
Won’t someone please just arrest Amy Winehouse? It’s clearly what she wants in life, more than her husband, a hit album, Grammys, and her health. Last night Wino was out in foggy London-town getting hammered at a pub, and ended her night head-butting a fellow bar patron who was trying to hail her a cab home. She also allegedly punched another customer, did drugs in the street, made out with her male companion and overturned tables in the pub. A spy even claimed that Amy was screaming, “I am a legend, get these people out. I want to take drugs.”
Officers are now officially investigating the incident(s), and Amy could very well be charged and arrested. So please, Scotland Yard, come on over and round up your girl. It’s what she wants most in this world. [The Sun]
J.Lo has millions upon billions of dollars from her perfume, clothing line and oh yeah – that acting and singing career she once had. So why the hell does she need – much less want – to do a reality TV show about motherhood? The TLC show is already in production and will document Lope’z daily struggles to juggle motherhood – ie: yelling at the nannies – with the launch of her new perfume. “I’m looking forward to sharing this exciting journey together,” says the momzilla. Yes, sharing the journey with a handful of viewers and the 40 servants who will really do all the “work” on the show will be SO exciting!
- The amount J.Lo rakes in for her reality TV stint: $1.2 million (just a guess)
- Screwing up your baby twins forever on national TV: priceless [People]
In what was clearly a move made under the influence of some sort of substance, the crazies over at MSNBC invited Heidi Montag – a reality star with fake boobs who hawks zebra print shirts, mind you – to the White House Correspondent’s gala. This is apparently some big ol’ DC bash where the President makes bad jokes and all the random stars and media peeps giggle and get drunk together. Sounds like a perfect place for our Hills starlet! But when her manager/boyfriend demanded two first class tickets for the pair, even though he wasn’t invited to the shindig, the news network freaked and Spencer nixed Heidi’s appearance. Oops! A source close to the always unbearable Pratt said the event wasn’t “A-listy enough” for the Z List pair, but never fear – Ben Affleck, Jen Garner, Pam Anderson, Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz found it just fine, thank you, and will be in attendance.

Anthony Edward “Tony” Stark, a.k.a. Iron Man, is a genius (went to M.I.T. at 15), a multi-billionaire (runs Stark Industries), an adventurer, a martial arts expert and a philanthropist. Not to mention he has a way with the ladies. Watch the clip above to glimpse Tony Stark’s lifestyle, then enter our contest for a chance to actually become him for a weekend. You could be living like a billionaire in Los Angeles!
We are all about autobiographies when the author has something to say – Bill Clinton, Ben Franklin, Rosie O’Donnell – these are important people with true tales that explode off the page. But a 15 year-old Disney Channel star? What the hell has she done that’s print-worthy? Apparently someone thinks her life events will garner Harry Potter-esque attention, and has offered Miley over $1 million to spill her beans on paper. Because her life thus far has presumably been extraordinarily uneventful, the book will mostly talk about how great her relationship is with her mom. ‘”I am so excited to let fans in on how important my relationship with my family is to me,” the Hannah Montana star said in a statement Tuesday. “I hope to motivate mothers and daughters to build lifetimes of memories together and inspire kids around the world to live their dreams.”‘
Interesting, that sounds a lot like another autobiography we once loved about a Disney star and her mom BFF – maybe Miley should ask Britney how life turned out after her book Britney Spears’ Heart to Heart? We’ve decided to go ahead and do the work for Miley, and are pitching the above book and below chapters as a great place to start. So what if she’s done next-to-nothing in her short time on earth – it can still be a juicy read, right?

The horrors! Booty queen Kim Kardashian actually let herself be seen in public without makeup and the images are shocking! Scandalous! Unbelievable! Why? Because she looks a whole lot better without all the face paint. Give a click here and see for yourself – behind the cover up, powder, bronzer, lip gloss and fake eye lashes is a pretty girl! We’d like to plead with the, er, reality star (?) and ask her to maybe tone it down every now and then. It’s a lot easier on our eyes – as well as her skin.
To check out Kim in her usual makeup layers, peep the pics below taken at last night’s Absolut 100 party in Hollywood. [Getty]
Tila, we had hoped that the producers of A Shot at Love would have improved their casting process for season 2. It is clear that they have not. With this new batch of contestants, A Shot at Love With Tila Tequila 2 will be nearly indistinguishable from a Cops episode filmed during spring break in Florida — except it might be more dangerous. Frankly, we’re worried for your safety. Please reconsider moving your show from MTV to VH1. We can do better.
You started the premiere by asking the supposedly straight men and supposedly gay women vying for your heart to step into cages. This was a wise decision. But you should have kept them there. Allow us to remind you how your suitors behaved while caged (one exposed her breasts and another let his penis swing freely through the air as he danced):
