Britney Spears Conservatorship Update

Britney Spearsconservatorship has lasted over four years…but there’s more to it than what you might think!

TMZ has just learned that Brit Brit’s conservatorship (which has no definitive end in sight) is still ongoing because she has a serious medical issue that prevents her from making consistently sound decisions.

Say what?

Let me backtrack.  Documents were filed Tuesday in Britney’s conservatorship case, urgently asking the judge to seal certain extremely sensitive records.  In the papers, lawyers of the songstress called the records “highly sensitive,” adding “irreparable harm and immediate danger” would befall Britney if the documents weren’t sealed. TMZ has reason to believe the info in these documents allude to Britney’s condition and how doctors are treating it.

As a reminder, there are 2 components to Britney’s highly controversial conservatorship:  personal and the business.  Personally, Britney’s conservatorship allows Jamie Spears and Jason Trawick to make personal decisions for the star.  The business conservatorship, also runned by Spears and Trawick, involves the management of Britney’s career and fortune.  The business side probably go on indefinitely because it’s really turned Brit Brit’s career around. The personal, however, may come to an end when Britney (who is doing really well) becomes more stable.

We wish Spears all the best with her medical issues!

Is Reality Television Rocking Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s Marriage?

Rumor has it Nick Cannon is PISSED that Mariah Carey took her extremely high-paying American Idol judging gig!

Cannon hosts Idol rival America’s Got Talent, and some say Cannon is secretly furious that his Grammy Award-winning wife didn’t listen to him and just decided to star in a direct competitor of his show.

Says The Enquirer:

“While he’s publicly said “she’s gonna be amazing on ‘Idol,’” an insider said that “privately, Nick’s gritting his teeth and dead-set against her taking the job.”

When Mariah was deep in delicate negotiations with “Idol” brass, the insider says Nick tried to “throw water on the negotiations” by telling a reporter: “I don’t know if they can afford Mariah Carey…If they gave J.Lo $20 million, they might have to double that!”

Well, they didn’t have to.  And Nick was trying to get her to not take the job- right until she accepted!

“He was dangling incentives – diamond jewelry, a luxurious spa vacation, even promising to pay her a one-time ‘gift’ of $15 million for saying no.

“Nick wants her to be a stay-at-home mom to their twins, at least until they turn 5. He was even hoping to have another baby, but Mariah has effectively scorched that dream.”

Sometimes, Nick, you have to let your wife make her own- and very lucrative- decisions! That’s life!

FIRST LOOK: Mariah Carey already shoots promo for ‘American Idol’ (she looks SKINNY!)

FOX just released their first promo pics for their fall lineup, which include Mariah Carey for ‘American Idol’ and Britney Spears for ‘The X Factor’.

Carey shows off her tiny figure (unless the photo has been photoshopped) in a tight sparkly orange dress. Britney looks equally amazing in her closeup.

Both stars are getting paid a pretty penny for their hosting gigs. Mariah is reportedly earning $18 million for one season, while Britney is earning $15 mil.

I think Mariah will do amazing as a judge on ‘American Idol’, but I think the jury’s still out on Britney. I have a feeling she’s actually not doing so well as a judge, but only time will tell!

Brad Paisley: New American Idol Judge?

Brad Paisley might be the next celebrity on the American Idol judges panel!

The popular series is seriously considering country star Paisley for one of the recently (and unceremoniously) vacated chairs on its judging panel. Though it isn’t where Idol usually goes in terms of recruiting judges, Paisley makes a lot of sense: the show’s biggest star, Carrie Underwood, is a country singer and some of the show’s recent winners (Scotty McCreery and runner-up Lauren Alana, to be more specific) are also in the country genre.

Paisley has also performed on Idol, and has a relationship with both Underwood and McCreery. Paisley recorded the song Remind me with Underwood and is going to tour with McCreery later this year.  Other shows are going country, too: NBC’s The Voice had country star Blake Shelton, as a mentor and that worked out pretty well for them, in my humble opinion.

What will new judge Mariah Carey say?!
