  Mariah Carey Joins 'American Idol' As New Judge   BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Mariah Carey will join "American Idol" as a judge next season, Fox announced Monday, bringing her star power to the show that remains a ratings leader but has seen its viewership and pop culture status diminish. "I am so excited to be joining `Idol,'" said Carey, addressing the Television Critics Association via Fox entertainment chief Kevin Reilly's cellphone, which he put on speakerphone for the hotel ballroom meeting.

The show, which saw judges Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez exit at the end of last season, will be back on the air for season 12 in January. Reilly called Carey "the biggest recording artist that any of these (talent) shows has ever had," adding that she was the "artist that many of these contestants have tried to emulate, have tried some of the songs, have tried to hit the notes." Playing the drama up, Reilly placed a…

He may have banned her from the Heat's courtside seats thanks to her sass, but apparently Gabrielle Union is never far from Dwyane Wade's thoughts. "She makes my eyes sparkle," the 2-time NBA champ told Oprah just hours after Miami's victory parade last Monday, adding that he really lights up seeing the actress love on his sons 10-year-old Zaire and 5-year-old Zion, of whom he has sole custody. "The biggest time she makes my eyes sparkle is when Zaire comes home and homework is a little hard that day, he's stressing, and she go to the table with him, and she sits down until he gets it, he understands it," Wade said. "And at that time my heart is smiling a little bigger that day because I know her love is deeper than just me." The pair, who reportedly met while co-hosting a SuperBowl party in 2007, have been Miami's hottest couple ever since. But it hasn't been easy: Wade's bitter divorce from his high school sweetheart Siohvaughn Funches turned into an even more bitter 3-year custody battle, including a lawsuit against Union for "emotional distress."

Chad Ochocinco Marries Evelyn Lozada

FacebookTweetFormer Dancing with the Stars contestant Chad Ochocinco married fellow reality star Evelyn Lozada in a July 4 celebration Wednesday in Miami – in what might be the most exhaustively documented wedding ever. Cameras were on hand to film the nuptials for the upcoming VH1 reality show Ev and Ocho. And the Miami Dolphins player, 34, was also live-Tweeting before, during and after the ceremony, offering a play-by-play of events. "Live tweeting from my wedding ... should be a first I'm assuming, music is playing, can't see my guests right now but they're here," he wrote on Twitter early in the evening. He went on to describe his anxiety at the altar, his bride's outfits and his peculiar position, late in the night, as the only sober person in a sea of drunken partiers. "I don't recall sending the butterflies in my stomach an invite ... and why am I shaking like I'm in Alaska," he wrote just before the vows. "What if @EvelynLozada is a runaway bride when I get out there and I'm stuck looking good all by myself ... did I mention looking good?" Soon, he added: "Here we go.... Proverbs 18:22... I love you guys... If…
Perry presents Madea’s Witness Protection. When George Needleman (Eugene Levy), the sweet, albeit clueless CFO of Lockwise Industries, finds out that not only is his company involved in a Ponzi scheme and money laundering for the mob, but that he has been promoted to take the fall, he and his family are forced to make a drastic move. Traditional witness protection is deemed too unsafe. Atlanta federal prosecutor Brian (Perry) hides them in the only place he can think of: his Aunt Madea’s house. Madea’s Witness Protection is everything that one comes to expect from a Madea movie. George and his wife, played by Denise Richards, have an out-of-control teenage daughter, an overweight son and senile mother-in-law (Doris Roberts). In the meantime, Romeo Miller invested the mortgage fund of his father’s (John Amos) church in Lockwise and is desperate to replace it. While the movie features Madea’s usual views on child-rearing and respect, and her colorful vocabulary – “Republica Convention (Republican), yoda (yoga)” – the plot is rushed and the sub plots are underdeveloped. The Needlemans are placed in witness protection, specifically with Madea because the mob will come after them and yet the mob only shows up once in…

By Logan Patmon It’s hard to work in the music industry for almost two decades and remain relevant, but Usher’s newest release Looking 4 Myself proves that he has joined the ranks of Beyonce and Jay-Z as an artist that has achieved longevity. Ushers seventh studio album proves to be a 14 track musical taste fest where he seamlessly blends together elements from the old school funk era on "Twisted", new school dub-step and Euro-pop, the styles which has given artist like Rihanna numerous hits, on "I Care for You" and slower ballads such as "Drive" that allows him to showcase his fine tuned vocal abilities. Even though Usher proves he is more than capable at executing any music style he chooses, the best tracks on the album are the one’s where he is channeling no one but himself. The album’s lead single "Climax", a heartbreak slow jam, and "Show Me", a feel good tune with a club beat, are two of the best tracks on the album where he returns to the R&B style that he rose to fame with. Unfortunately Usher over indulges in the use of synthesizers that transforms his usually velvety smooth voice into a mechanic…
