It must feel pretty swell to be invited to judge on the same stage you were once a contestant on several years ago. After a low blow in the ratings department this past season, American Idol is once again doing some shake-ups by adding former Idol contestant/Grammy winning/Academy Award winning actress Jennifer Hudson to the now empty judges table.
With Randy Jackson finally bowing out and Mariah, Nicki, and Keith Urban all getting the boot it now leaves open the idea of adding some fresh new faces…..former familiar faces that it. Adjacent to Jhud, 1st season American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson is also said to joining the table along with either Adam Lambert or Clay Aiken according to E! Online (hopefully they have their sources correct this time lol).

I swear when worlds collide they bring out the best and worst in celebrities….
In the curious case of Katy Perry and her disdain for one of Chief Keef‘s songs glorifying being intoxicated, Chief Keef caught wind of Perry’s shade via Twitter and decided to take it to the streets on Katy’s lily white arse.
Check the tweets:
…..wow I guess it was safe to assume he wasn’t happy. Well a new day a new beef squashed because Katy has now had a change of heart and took to Twitter to big up the Chicago rapper and praise his works..

Seems like somebody is feeling themselves and unless the right c-notes are on the check than Mona Scott Young and Vh1 can go straight to hell!
It would appear that the cast of Love and Hip Hop New York were all set to go back to their lives behind the camera this past week in preparation for their upcoming season however nobody bothered to show up for work and the ones that did high tailed it out of there.
Now according to TMZ all cast members were supposed to be present Tuesday in NYC to film a trailer for the upcoming season, but only half of the cast showed up. The other half stayed home in protest because negotiations for their new contracts had gone sour.

Hate it or Love it Ciara is moving these singles and claiming her spot at the top whether you like it not. Cici and the go-to-feature gal Nicki Minaj join forces on the ill dance track ‘I’m Out‘ which is sure to light up the clubs and dance floors all throughout the summer.
What I love about this is that it channels a bit of the old Ciara and lyrically both her and Nicki kill it. Ciara has definitely had a hard time musically when it comes to delivering a solid hit or album for that matter but perhaps things will be a lot different this go around when ‘Ciara’ drops July 9th.
Can’t wait to see how the high energy video will turn out. In the meantime check out the hopeful new banger after the jump.

The 96 Bonnie And Clyde of Foxy Brown and Jay-Z may be no more but that doesn’t mean the Ill Na Na has any disloyalty to her former boss. After an alleged Foxy Brown interview (that supposedly went down years ago) depicting Jay-Z in a not so nice way recently resurfaced and the media hounds were quick to run with the story.
The interview had Foxy spilling all the beans explaining how Jay took her virginity and showered her with gifts, Hov was a tranny chaser, and that Beyoncé’s breath had a terrible stench. I for one didn’t believe any of it but of course the blogs ran with the allegations. Foxy apparently got whiff of the story and is now seeking legal action.

The Queen of reads, ratchetness, and rebellious soul is wasting no time using those Love & Hip Hop Atlanta hours at the time clock for the betterment of promotion. K.Michelle is wielding out those singles in preparation of her debut album dropping in July.
V.S.O.P is definitely an appropriate lead single choice sans the raunchy buzz track “I Just Wanna….” K dropped last month which was enough to make Millie Jackson blush.
If K.Michelle would just keep her temper in check she has the star power and vocal ability to soar to the top of her game backed by one of the most highly rated reality shows on cable tv.
Peep out K.Michelle’s 1st single “V.S.O.P” after the jump.

Kanye West is on a roll y’all and the anticipation for new music has already arrived. Last night the male Kardashian in training unveiled single ‘New Slaves‘ across a few buildings in New York and Hollywood last night showcasing the media attention rapper narrating his latest masterpiece. ‘New Slaves’ will run throughout 10 cities and 66 landmarks and buildings over North America, Europe, Australia which you can view on Kanye’s website here.
The new track has a very new world order type of vibe which comes off to me as revolutionary and dark… a leftover doggy bag from ‘My Beautiful Dark and Twisted Fantasy‘.
College Dropout Yeezy please phone home.
…..anyway Rap-Up.com has revealed and confirmed that Kanye has picked out an album title for his upcoming project and a follow-up to ‘My Beautiful Dark and Twisted Fantasy‘ to be called ‘Yeezus‘. The new album (Yeezus) is expected to arrive in stores June 18th which was highly speculated after Yeezy dropped the tweet a few weeks ago which has since been deleted.
