Mariah Carey Fails Miserably in UK

April 20, 2008

Despite spending a considerable amount of time there promoting E=MC2 and doing tons of interviews and chat shows, Mariah Carey‘s new CD has bombed in England.

The new album failed to meet expectations, underperforming and coming in at #3 this week.

Who beat out Mimi?

The Kooks, whose album came in at #1.

Meanwhile, Madonna has the #1 single in the U.K. now. 4 Minutes marks her 13th #1 single in Great Britain.

Congrats to Madge!

We’re sure Mimoo will do better in America. We hope!

Hip-Hop Hospital Run For KRS-One

April 20, 2008

Nothing like a little flying glass to help preach non-violence!

Old-school rap legend KRS-One was hospitalized in New Haven, CT with a fractured hand last night when a “fan” threw a bottle on stage, striking the rapper in the head and hand. And get this: KRS was performing in New Haven on his Stop the Violence tour. Jesus take the freakin’ parking lot!

The concert-goer was upset because club security had removed him from the stage, according to AllHipHop.com. The rapper had to cancel several upcoming appearances due to the severity his injuries. The best thing, though? He kept rappin’ even after getting hit!

George W Bush – The Game Show

April 20, 2008

Can you say, lame duck?!

According to reports, “President ” George W. Bush is going to appear on a game show this coming Monday, which will feature a contestant who is a soldier.

No, it’s not Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader. Close, though!

‘W’ is going to appear on NBC’s Deal or No Deal.

The White House PR team is probably doing jumping jacks that this nice, fluffy AND war-related piece actually came their way!

Captain Joseph Kobes reportedly competes in the popular Howie Mandel-fronted show to attempt to win enough cash to pay off his parents’ home. The dealmaking is briefly halted for Kobes, a Purple Heart and Bronze Star recipient who has served in Iraq THREE times. ‘W’ surprises him by appearing on a screen to express gratitude for his service and wish him luck in the game.

The ‘W’ piece was pre-taped.

Hats off to Captain Kobes, though. We can’t wait to hear if he won all the money needed to help his fam. If the Captain didn’t win all that was needed, maybe ‘W’ can make some phone calls to get Haliburton’s charitable contributions gang to cover the debt!

Oprah would pay for the house, even if he lost!
