Mariah Carey has fired Randy Jackson as her manager as her and Randy will not be coming back to "American Idol" next season. Neither will Nicki Minaj or Keith Urban as well.

We are sure this season of American Idol did not help Randy retain his management services of Mariah, but she is blaming "hectic" schedules for the release of Randy.

Mariah already has new management, Red Light Management, who also manages Radiohead, Faith Hill, and Tim McGraw.-DocFB

Diagnosis: She will always be his baby....

Video Premiere: Nicki Minaj Releases Low-Budget Video For “Come On A Cone”

Ahh. The words "dick in your face" were never sang so poetically. Nicki Minaj exclaims that in the low budget video release of "Come On A Cone" produced by Grizzly Music.

This video comes just days after she released "The Boys" video, which seemed to have a budget.

"Come On A Cone" is from Minaj's "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded: The Re-Up" which is due in November.

The video features Minaj and her crew on several different stages, even showing her sitting next to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

Even Randy Jackson makes a cameo on the video.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Do you even have to ask if Mariah Carey is in the video?

Your Next American Idol Judges…..Adam Lambert, Pink, & Justin Timberlake???

American Idol is trouble. Big time. Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez have just quit the show. Randy Jackson appears to be leaving the show as well. There are only 3 people who can save Idol now, and the producers need to make it happen. Who are the next American Idol...judges?

The next judges need to be Adam Lambert, Pink, and Justin Timberlake. Anyone else and the show is going to fail. You are going to want reasons aren't you?

Adam Lambert. Let's be real. The show hasn't mattered since his loss to Kris Alan a few years ago. He wasn't good enough then to be the American Idol but he is needed now to save the show. He is coming off a number 1 U.S. album with "Trespassing" and a monumental run of dates overseas with Queen. Although "Trespassing" did debut at number 1, and there is other solid material on the album, it would be in Adam's best interest to take the Idol job.... There are no set tour plans and although some people may see this as a step back for Adam, you have to look at what it did for Steven Tyler and Aerosmith this summer to see this would be ideal for Adam and the Lamberts. Adam has been there. His advice to contestants would be invaluable.

Pink. Pink just dropped a new single and has set plans for a new album later this year. She still has a new baby at home. She would be the edge for the show. The female Simon Cowell who will tell you the truth and be short and to the point. Although she has a new album coming out, the show could work for her the way that it worked for Jennifer Lopez...and more...because unlike Jennifer Lopez, Pink is still relevant musically. She could perform on the show, premiere new videos on the show, and get the exposure all without having to leave her baby and her husband too far.

Justin Timberlake. You all remember he used to make music, right? Before he was trying to sex up Mila Kunas, he was bragging how he was going to bring "Sexyback" on "Future/Sex/Love/Sound" earlier this century. That album was filled with great material...the awful "Sexyback" aside. Either Justin has lost love for music or those movie paychecks are just too big. This could be what inspires him musically and at the same time, scope out talent for his own record label. That would have to be the provision in the contract that Justin is able to sign two artists that do not make the top 8 and 2 that do not make the top 16, giving him 4 artists that he could sign. Justin would bring a unique style to the show and at the same time, be giving Britney Spears a run for her money on X-Factor.

Think about it. This works and saves Idol at the same time. If they actually make this happen...I may watch an episode this season.

What do you think? Should Adam Lambert, Pink, and Justin Timberlake be your next American Idol judges?

Who do U want?-DocFB

In a move everyone saw coming, Jennifer Lopez announced this morning she is leaving American Idol. This comes less than 24 hours after Steven Tyler announced he was leaving the show.

The announcement was made on Ryan Seacrest's radio show, the only person still in American Idol's employee.

J.Lo remarked "We had an amazing run."

As we announced on Twitter yesterday, it is more than likely that Randy Jackson will not be coming back as a judge either.

This show is sinking.....fast! Let's be real; this show hasn't mattered since they chose Kris Allen over Adam Lambert.-DocFB

Video Premiere: “Blame Game” Kanye West & John Legend Performance (Uncensored)

 

Kanye West sweats it up in his rap with John Legend laying down the vocals and chorus for "Blame Game" clip that is being used for Kanye & Jay Z's "G.O.O.D. Music" presented by Vevo.

John Legend is on point...although it is still weird him using the bitch word.  Kanye's vocals singing the chorus is not as bad as you would think.  Oh wait. He keeps going.  Nope.  Not good.  Should have kept it short.

I can hear "That was rather pitchy, dog" being said by Randy Jackson somewhere right now. Stick to rapping.

Check out the live performance clip of "Blame Game" and let us know what you think.-Dr.FB

Diagnosis:  Only Kanye To Blame For Bad Vocals

While J. Lo remains quiet, and hasn't posted on her Twitter account in 6 months, which we imagine will change today, Steven Tyler was anything but quiet last night in Las Vegas.

Although TMZ reported Steven Tyler would be in L.A. all weekend, he actually performed with Aerosmith last night in Las Vegas.

Steven said during the show;

“recording an album and [I’m] probably going to be a judge on American Idol.”

"I’m doing it. What do you think? I’m doing it.”

He also said "I’m pregnant with Joe Perry’s baby.”

The official announcement will be today where barring any last minute changes, it will be Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, and Randy Jackson as your American Idol judges.

Not sure if Ryan Seacrest will make the announcement.-Dr.FB

Shocker! Ellen Quits American Idol!!!!!!!

This was rumor as of yesterday as Ellen was under contract for 5 years and would have to quit if Nigel Lithgow, the producer of American Idol, who has returned to the show, was going to make changes to Idol.

So in a Tweet, Ellen said

 "Dim the lights...I've voted myself off American Idol."

It followed with this released statement:

A couple months ago, I let FOX and the "American Idol" producers know that this didn't feel like the right fit for me. I told them I wouldn't leave them in a bind and that I would hold off on doing anything until they were able to figure out where they wanted to take the panel next. It was a difficult decision to make, but my work schedule became more than I bargained for. I also realized this season that while I love discovering, supporting and nurturing young talent, it was hard for me to judge people and sometimes hurt their feelings. I loved the experience working on "Idol" and I am very grateful for the year I had. I am a huge fan of the show and will continue to be.
 
OK, did she REALLY quit Idol or was she forced out?  We hear Randy Jackson is next and Kira DioGuardi is gone already.
Nigel Lithgow will be replacing Simon Cowell and we hear Jessica Simpson will be announced as a judge along with Nigel on Monday.
What we do not know now is if they will have 3 judges or 4.
Chris Isaak has expressed interest in the gig but Harry Connick Jr. is passing. 
With Ellen gone and Simon gone, is Idol over for you?-Dr.FB
