16 Hollywood Stars & Their Supercars

April 25th, 2014 3:00pm EDT
16 Hollywood Stars & Their Supercars
Honda. Ford. Chevy. These are all household names. We see them every day driving to work, or while going to grab a cup of coffee on the corner, or from our office window. They don't do anything special to really grab your attention - they just exist to get us from point A to point B. And for most of us, that's just fine.

But for those who can afford it, vehicles offer something else - status. And those vehicles are fast and loud, and they grab -no- command attention wherever they go. Whether it's through sleek, formula 1-like styling, or monstrous engines that roar like lions and move like...

MTV Movie Awards Red Carpet Photos: Nicki Minaj Dazzles, Jessica
Nicki Minaj hit the red carpet at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles Sunday Night for the MTV Movie Awards toning things down a bit with a black Alexander McQueen floor-length gown and pairing it with lots of gold jewelry. The singer also went with a more natural look with her makeup, which is usually as outrageous as her red carpet outfits.

Other stars looked fab on the red carpet also, including Jessica Alba, who was one of a handful of stars baring a little midsection, wearing a strapless white top that also bared her midriff.

Teen stars Bella Thorne and Debby Ryan also flashed a little ...

Nicki Minaj Shares Sexy Bikini Shots On Instagram And Sparks Rumors She's Engaged

Nicki Minaj Shares Sexy Bikini Shots On Instagram And Sparks Rum
Nicki Minaj has been spending some down time in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, this week, and posting tons of selfies to her Instagram page, including a number of sexy shots while wearing a revealing bikini.

But the rapper revealed something else in one of the shots from her vacay -- a ring. On that finger.

Nicki, 31, and boyfriend Safaree Samuels, 32, marked their 10th anniversary of dating last week, and in the image Nicki posted both of them appear to be wearing wedding bands.

So far there's been no confirmation whether or not the two either got engaged or tied the knot. If they did, it woul...

Nicki Minaj Posts Odd, Naked Shower Selfies On Instagram
Nicki Minaj posted a series of photos of herself post-shower on Instagram Wednesday. The naked singer is pictured in half body shots with wet hair. She didn't write any captions to explain what was going on. Perhaps a picture is worth a 1,000 words?

Fans were titillated by the shots, with some making some graphic comments about the images.

Minaj has no qualms about sharing racy photos with the world. Back in October she posted topless photos of herself wearing star-shaped, leopard-print pasties.

Meanwhile, the rapper's former hairstylist Terrence Davidson is suing the star for $30 millio...

Nicki Minaj Apologizes For Using Malcolm X Photo To Promote 'Loo
Nicki Minaj used an iconic image of civil rights leader Malcolm X to promote her new song "Lookin' Ass N*gga," and has since apologized following backlash over the move.

On Wednesday, Minaj revealed what appeared to be the artwork for her new single, which shows the late activist holding a gun and peeking through curtains. Ebony magazine originally published the image in 1964.

People immediately criticized Minaj for using the photo to promote a song in which she attacks a man for objectifying her. A petition on Change.org asks Minaj to get rid of the picture and stop "disrespecting Malco...

'American Idol' Recap: New Judges Means A New Show

January 16th, 2014 9:06am EST
American Idol
13 Years in and suddenly 'Idol' seems like it's playing catch-up.

In what it's hoping isn't its unlucky thirteenth season, 'American Idol' attempted yet another reinvention last night, veering farther away from the snide formula that made it such a breakout success all those summers ago. Gone is the ridicule, the delight at disaster and general amateur nature of the show. Instead, it's mostly good contestants and enough sob/inspiration stories to fill a week's worth of Olympics coverage.

Even worse than that, we're getting to know the contestants before they even sing a bar. Banter abound...

Lorde Explains Comments Calling Drake And Nicki Minaj 'Irrelevant'

Lorde
Lorde has explained why she called Drake and Nicki Minaj irrelevant in a recent Interview magazine issue, following criticism from Complex.

Lorde said in the interview about her hit Royals, "Around the middle of last year I started listening to a lot of rap, like Nicki Minaj and Drake, as well as pop singers like Lana Del Rey. They all sing about such opulence, stuff that just didn't relate to me - or anyone that I knew. I began thinking, 'How are we listening to this? It's completely irrelevant.' I basically just wrote what we were all thinking." Complex wrote that Lorde had dissed the mu...

Ellen DeGeneres Does Halloween Show Dressed As Nicki Minaj: Best Celebrity Costume Ever?

Ellen DeGeneres as Nicki Minaj for Halloween 2013
Ellen DeGeneres has unofficially officially won the 2013 celebrity Halloween costume contest.

The daytime TV host surprised viewers Thursday by showing up wearing a very revealing Nicki Minaj costume.

Ellen's costume was nearly an exact replica of the outfit Minaj wore on her show in late September -- complete with fake boobs.

"I got the whole look down," she told the audience. "I even have the same shoes on. I think I do -- I can't see my feet -- but I think I do.

"I normally don't wear things this sexy, but when you dress as Nicki Minaj you have to. So here are my boom booms and my su...

Dominatrix Nicki Minaj Nearly Bares All In Pasties & Fishnets On Halloween

November 1st, 2013 10:30am EDT
Nicki Minaj
Nicki Minaj let it all hang out on Halloween in a racy, bondage-like costume. The singer nearly bared all in fishnets, pasties and a studded leather harness around her chest.

She also donned thigh-high vinyl boots and wore handcuffs clipped to her leather-clad bottoms. The singer posted the selfies on Instagram.

Perhaps she's a fan of "Fifty Shades of Grey?"

It isn't the first time Minaj, 30, has showed off her curves on the social networking website. In mid October she flaunted her gigantic breasts covered by star-shaped, leopard-print pasties. The week prior, she bared her booty in a y...

Nicki Minaj Poses Topless With Animal Print Pasties

Nicki Minaj pasties
Nicki Minaj is letting it all hang out in new photos she posted on Instagram today. The singer, 30, showed off her gigantic breasts covered by star-shaped, leopard-print pasties.

Wearing a string of gold chains, she captioned one image: "Should I add #Pasties to the Spring Collection????"

Minaj just created a clothing line for Kmart, and we have a feeling the company probably wouldn't include pasties in its inventory.

In another image, Minaj writes: "Putting this one on a T-Shirt."

The rapper has a history of posting provocative images online. Last week she flaunted her booty in a yello...

Nicki Minaj Flaunts Her Booty In A Yellow Thong Bikini, Debuts New Kmart Collection

Nicki Minaj posted a pair of selfies to her Instagram page, showing off her iconic derriere while squatting in a yellow thong bikini.

"Have a nice day," she wrote.

Nicki actually posted the images in February, but for some reason uploaded to her Instagram page once again on Monday. Perhaps she was seeking a little attention as she's been somewhat out of the spotlight this fall after departing American Idol.

But the rapper does have something up her sleeve -- a new collection for Kmart. Nicki shared a behind the scenes video from a recent photo shoot for the Nicki Minaj Collection, in whi...

Gluteus Maximus: A Salute To The Sexy Celebrity Booty

With the immortal words from 20th century poet Sir Mix-a-Lot "I like big butts and I cannot lie," the crack research team at Starpulse was given the arduous and grueling task of finding the finest photos on the site that revere one of the world's preferred body parts, the buttocks.

In contemporary music and in Hollywood today, starlets and singers who refrain from eating are considered to be the definition of beauty and grace; but many prefer more curvier women -- those with a little "junk in the trunk".

The great French Dadaist Marcel Duchamp put it best when he painted a moustache on a ...

Nicki Minaj Plagiarized Starships: Did Nicki  Minaj copy a song? She has been sued by electronic artist Clive Tanaka for copying his 2011 song Neu Chicago for her hit single Starships.

Verdict: They are similar. Tanaka may have a case when he heads to court. However, the music progression in question is fairly simplistic and is only a handful of notes repeated ad nauseam. Tanaka's lawyer said, "We beli...

Nicki Minaj is urging rapper Gucci Mane, real name Radric Davis, to check himself into a rehab center.

Mane made some off-key comments about Minaj via Twitter on Monday, including alleging that the two had slept together. He also went on the offensive against his label, Atlantic Records, and other stars like Waka Flocka Flame, Drake and Ciara, the latter of whom he also insinuated he slept with.

But the "Starships" singer quickly denied his allegations, writing on Twitter, "May God strike me dead if I ever had sex wit that man... N**ga da way ya ugliness is set up... crackhead. Jesus stri...

Thanks to stars like Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj, "twerk" has found a home in the Oxford Dictionaries Online.

The official entry reads as such: "Twerk, v.: dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance."

Twerking has been around for almost 20 years, first appearing in hip-hop in New Orleans. It was later popularized in the early 2000s thanks to the Ying-Yang Twins, with songs like "Whistle While You Twurk."

Katherine C. Martin, head of US Dictionaries at Oxford University Press, said in a tweet that the addition was ...

Nicki Minaj left little to the imagination on Wednesday when she posted a topless photo of herself to her Instagram page.

The 30-year-old singer's hair was strategically placed to keep the snapshot rated PG. She captioned the photo with just a 'fist' icon.

Nicki also posted some selfies earlier in the week while wearing a very colorful Alexander McQueen dress that resembled a stained glass window. The singer showed off her sexy curves in a side-profile shot with the message, "Do it like this," and a few others, simply captioned with the hashtag "#aLexanderMcQueen".

George Zimmerman was acquitted of second degree murder and manslaughter charges Saturday after over a dozen hours of deliberation. The trial grabbed the national spotlight, at times eclipsing the 2012 Presidential Election.

The R&B songstress hailing from Atlanta, Georgia is back again slamming us with her fifth album since her debut back in 2004. I am talking about none other than the “Goodies” singer, herself! Ciara has seen many ups and downs in her career, but her newest song “I’m Out feat. Nicki Minaj” is definitely rising fast! “Ladies it’s your song” are the lyrics that start of this club-banger and for all the rest of the ladies out there, I’ve named “I’m Out” as this week’s Pop Topper of the Week!

No, Ciara doesn’t go at this song alone. She and her new bestie, Nicki Minaj, have teamed up again (what...

Nicki Minaj has some odd relationship advice that she will gladly share - even if she won't reveal who she is in a relationship with.

Marie Claire conducted an interview with Minaj by having her millions of social media fans suggest questions.  She currently has 16.7 million followers on Twitter.

She told her fans, "Men are kids at heart. They want to be nourished and pet like a dog," but, "Don’t chase any man. Put your school first. Men love independent women."

'American Idol' Ratings At An All-Time Low As Producers Consider Big Changes

May 17th, 2013 1:07pm EDT
American Idol
Despite a grab for ratings by playing up a feud between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, viewers have refused to tune in to American Idol's finale performances this season.

The new judges - Carey, Minaj, and Keith Urban - are probably on their way out along with veteran Randy Jackson after a mere 11.57 million American viewers tuned in to watch the 12th season finalists duel it out.

Compared to the 11th season, the show has lost over 2 million viewers. The rating last year was a 4.2, compared to Wednesday's 2.9 score.

One of the reasons for the drop in ratings may be the strength of Candice...

This is it. This is the last one.

For years, I’ve been recapping the cultural touchstone that is the finale of ‘American Idol’ with the classic mega-diary treatment: A blow-by-blow recap of everything that went down on TV’s biggest night.

At least it used to be. Once Upon a Time only the Oscars and Super Bowl drew more viewers than this night, but the last couple year it’s viewership has slowly degraded to the point where one of this season’s results shows got beat out in the ratings by a repeat of ‘The Big Bang Theory.’

That’s enough to prove that the ‘Idol’ finale just isn’t anywhere c...

Rumors are circulating that there will be a major shake up on "American Idol" next season. Are judges Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, Randy Jackson and Keith Urban all on the chopping block?

With only three contestants left on this season's singing competition, Mariah has been taking her role very seriously. However, it's most likely that she won't be returning. Her bland judging style hasn't made a very good impression on network execs or fans.

A FOX source told E! there will definitely be no Mariah when the show returns next year. A few weeks ago it was even suggested that Jennifer Lopez was...
