We all knew Steve Jones would not be returning to X Factor and that Nicole Scherzinger was out, but Paula Abdul will not be returning as well.
According to reports, Paula Abdul was informed by the network that she would not be returning to X Factor.
We reported earlier this month that it was expected for Steve Jones to be released as host and Nicole Scherzinger would replace him as host and Mariah Carey would replace Nicole as judge. Although Simon Cowell and Fox are interested in Mariah, she has yet to commit.
This now leaves Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid as the only returning judges from the first season of X Factor.
Simon's former show, American Idol, has been slipping in the ratings in its first 2 weeks of the 10th season.
Paula Abdul was tweeting about X Factor earlier today but has not tweeted since the news broke of her departure from the show.
I felt that Nicole and Steve were the weak links of X Factor, even though all of Paula's teams were eliminated rather early in the show.
What do you think of Paula being let go from X Factor?-DocFB
Diagnosis: Who will fill the 3 open spots?
Mariah Carey appears to be heading to X Factor, replacing Nicole Scherzinger as a judge on the music reality show. Nicole, however, will not be going too far.
According to reports hitting the wires this morning, Mariah Carey, who was to be a judge on X Factor from the start, but not being able to come to an agreement on the money and her being pregnant, appears to be heading to the judge's chair.
Nicole, who was obviously not comfortable being a judge on the show, will be replacing Steve Jones as host of X Factor. I thought Mario Lopez would be a better fit for the show.
The announcement has not been made official but unless some last-minute snags happen, expect the announcement by the end of the week.-DocFB
Diagnosis: X Factor still needs some more fixing to compete with Idol....
We can't really blame Conan for staring at Nicole Scherzinger's breasts on his show last night. It really did look like they were painted on.
At the 2:04 mark, Nicole tells Conan to focus on her face instead of her breasts, calling out the host for just straight staring at her chest.
They then start talking about her co-host of her new show X-Factor Simon Cowell's man boobs aka Moobs. Yea, I rather be talking about Nicole's. That's just me though.
If you can get past staring at them, she really does a great impersonation of Britney Spears. Check out the clip...and her breasts.-DocFB
Diagnosis: That Dress Was Tighter Than A Funk Jam!
Simon Cowell was on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno talking about X-Factor will be better than American Idol. Would he say anything else?
Interesting that he chose to diss Nicole Scherzinger saying has multiple personalities....although it was shown that perhaps she does.
He then said about L.A. Reid that he is difficult to work with and that he is met his match.
Simon admitted that he kissed Paula Abdul back in the day in season 2 of American Idol. Hmm. Paula still denies it to this day.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Will X Mark The Spot?
From 2005 til 2008, Prince threw legendary house parties, especially after award shows. Last night, it seems those parties are starting up again.
The guest list for Prince's Grammy Jammy was: Prince, Best New Artist Grammy Winner Esperanza Spalding, Janelle Monae, Will.I.Am, Dave Chappelle, Lenny Kravitz, India Arie, Cyndi Lauper, Nicole Scherzinger, AJ Calloway, and Shaun Robinson.
Well, there is the guest list. Will details follow?-Dr.FB
Update: PRINCE & Janelle Monae brought the sun up at Prince's new L.A. dgs...new "California" dates are coming so he WILL be there for a minute...
The Pussycat Dolls are about to announce they are breaking up. I am sure the other girls just could not put up with Nicole anymore. She had a contract where she always had to be in the middle while doing press photos like above.
To be straight up honest, I don't really care. They had a couple of hits. I moved on. Glad they are too.
Do you care that they are breaking up?-Dr.FB
Taylor Momsen feels like dancing, and if we were her, we would feel like dancing too!
She is a on a hit cult hit show "Gossip Girl" and she just signed a recording contract with Interscope Records.
Interscope Records President Jimmy Iovine had this to say about signing Taylor;
“Taylor has an incredible presence and when she decided to make Interscope her musical home we were thrilled.”
Taylor responded to Jimmy comments by saying this;
“I’m so excited to be among the talented and respected artists signed to Interscope Records. Partnering with Jimmy Iovine is an honor.”
Wonder if we will be seeing Jimmy hanging with Taylor the way he hangs with Nicole Scherzinger from the Pussycat Dolls. Oh come on Jimmy, I am just kidding. Respect.-Dr.FB
