"Precious" in Cannes update

It's still unknown at the moment if "Precious" will make it to Cannes.  Observers think the movie will still make it despite the Weinstein Co. tentative to block it, they think international laws will work in favor of "Precious".
If "Precious" can make it, rumors are flying around Mariah could indeed be in Cannes around 14 May.  The premiere (tbc) would take place at the Salle Debussy (right side of the Palais) (TBC).

During the Festival, non badgers can go to special screenings at Le Théatre La Licorne, Le Studio 13, Le Raimu in Cannes.
Also, the movies in the "Un Certain Regard" category will be shown from 27 May until June 6 at le Reflet Médicis in Paris.

Wait and see.

Is this the real one???

After many rumors, it seems the house Mariah and Nick bought in the LA area is finally known.
BUYER: Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon Carey
LOCATION: Antelo Road, Bel Air, CA
PRICE: around $7,000,000 (allegedly)
SIZE: 11,750 square feet (approx.), 5 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms
DESCRIPTION: Magnificent gated private view estate on 3 acres. Incredible site. Prime Bel Air address. Staggering 360 degree vus of entire city.

The house high in the hills above Bel Air that once belonged to Farrah Fawcett who sold it back in 1999 to  a prolific and Grammy winning music engineer/producer named Allen Sides who has used his pin sharp musician's ear while working with music masters like like Eric Clapton, Faith Hill, Mary J. Blige, Joni Mitchell, Ray Charles, Ella Fitzgerald, André Previn and Frank Zappa. No doubt, the man has crossed musical paths with Miss Mariah a time or two as well.

We've learned that Mister and Missus Sides listed their dee-voonly secluded 3-acre estate above Stone Canyon in August of 2008 with an asking price of $9,500,000. Before long, the asking price had been sliced, diced, slivered and slashed to $6,995,000 and shortly thereafter the property was removed from the open market but was still, we understand, shopped around off-market. Then along came Miss Mariah who, records show, quietly closed on the property in early April of 2009 for an as yet undisclosed sum of money.

Property records show the sprawling, multi-winged mansion measures 9,951 square feet with 6 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms. However, listing information we managed to get our grubby mitts on shows the house spans 11,750 square feet (approx.) and includes 5 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms.

Listing information shows that in addition to all the bedrooms, terlit rooms and seven fireplaces, the 2-story center hall traditional includes formal living and dining rooms, den, family room, lanai, library/study (as if), media room, office, an eat in kitchen, and while listing information does not say so, we would not be remotely surprised to learn there is a recording studio on the property. This would, obviously, be a wonderful convenience that would allow Miss Mariah to warble and slide up and down every note on the damn scale without ever changing out of her robe.

The grounds include two motor courts, a huge rectangular swimming pool with a pool side pavilion, a large brick terrace with long views down the rugged canyon towards downtown Los Angeles, several flat lawn areas, a gazebo, and three gated entrances, all of which we can assure the children will be secured with armed sentries prepared to pepper an automobile with a curtain of bullets should anyone be stoopid enough to try and peer through Miss Mariah's tall hedges. Don't even think about it children. Seriously. If you think Ellen Degeneres is serious about her security, then you ain't seen nothing compared to Miss Mariah's burly men will do to anyone who gets nosy enough to cruise on by hoping to catch a glimpse of Our Lady of the Micro.

Mariah Vinyl Art to Hang in Hard Rock Hotel

A series of three pieces of Vinyl Art by Daniel Edlen, reproduced by ArtScans Studio, Inc. through Fresh Paint Art Advisors, Inc., is being installed in 23 suites at the newly remodeled Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida.

The original portraits on vinyl records of Carlos Santana, Mariah Carey, and John Lennon were scanned and printed at ArtScans Studio's highest resolution onto rag paper and framed individually in silver-leaf. They will be displayed above the headboard in the Beacon and Fillmore Suites once the rooms go through their stage of the remodel.

Cannes pick could provoke legal drama
'Precious' at center of fight between Lionsgate, Weinstein
The inclusion of "Precious: Based on the Novel by Sapphire" in the Un Certain Regard section of the Festival de Cannes could stir up the ongoing legal fight over North American rights to the Lee Daniels drama.

The Weinstein Co. has not ruled out the possibility of seeking an injunction to block the fest screening, though it currently is seeking only monetary damages.

"Precious" (originally titled "Push") was slated to close the New Directors/New Films festival in New York this month but was dropped from the slate, presumably to pave the way for a Croisette unspooling. 

TWC did not take any legal action at that time, but the Cannes showing, with its attendant media circus, could prompt a bigger fight.

In February, Lionsgate and the Weinstein Co. traded lawsuits, with the New York mini-major claiming that it had reached an agreement with producer during Sundance. 

Smokehouse Films and its rep Cinetic Media to buy rights to the pic before Lionsgate closed its own deal.

Cinetic and Smokehouse were named in separate New York lawsuits, while TWC filed a third suit against Lionsgate for interfering with the negotiation. 

Lionsgate's lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles, sought a court declaration that it owned the pic's North American rights and that producers never reached a deal with TWC. Lionsgate, which plans to release the film this year with the support of Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry, later filed a motion to dismiss the New York case. The motions are pending in both states.

Neither Lionsgate nor the Weinstein Co. would comment Thursday. It is unclear if Winfrey or Perry would attend the Cannes screening. 

Legal experts said that even though TWC had been bidding for world rights, it could face an uphill battle in trying to stop a screening at Cannes. The fest normally would come under the publicity efforts of a film's North American distributor, but as a foreign territory, it still sits outside that distributor's jurisdiction. Rights in other countries subsequently have been sold by producers, including Filmax for Spain and Arp for France.

Blaming Mariah again!
A lot (and I mean a lot!!!) US medias are reporting the results of a poll conducted for Earth Day.  Of course the voters of the poll were choosing Mariah as least green celebity for flying her personal trainer from St. Barts.  I'm the first one to agree we need to protect the earth and the nature, but how do we know if it's not Mariah's trainer who wants to fly by private jet?   And all the other celebrities owning a private jet???   Anyway,  I'm sure all people who voted didn't drive today, had their pc shut down, turned down their lighting and so on.... right??? 
On a funnier note, Nick along with SpongeBob powered down New York City’s Empire State Building for Earth Day, I'm waiting for people from that poll to hate on Sponge and say his clothes are made with non-ecologic stuff

Jasmine talks a lil' about Mariah's new tracks in her column
Madness with Mariah

Jasmine hung out with buddy Mariah at a London hotel, but is tight-lipped about the day’s activities! 

THE early part of April was hectic! The G20 leaders dinner at Downing Street was legendary – a night full of historic memories. Next, we had Mrs Mariah Carey-Cannon’s birthday celebrations in Barbados. Then, it was off to Miami where she was working on tracks for her next album, which is due out in the next few months. 

Straight from Miami, Mr and Mrs C’s jet plane landed at Heathrow, where the paps (who were waiting for politicians at the airport), bum-rushed her and asked her about whether she was happy about Obama’s trip to the UK. Oh how we laughed. What do journalists expect someone to reply to such a redundant question? 

“Um yeah…it’s fabulous!” Mrs C had time for just three hours sleep before she got up to play me the songs she’s made so far for the new album. We listened to 
the new music in a manner that I have never been treated to before. It was different, slightly naughty and millions of her fans would’ve loved to see through my eyes at that moment. But if I revealed what we did, there would be a worldwide scandal! What happens in a London hotel room, stays in a London hotel room! 

I heard a variety of tracks, and there were big ballads, catchy melodic hooks, hilarious and witty wordplay, and clever lines galore. 

I had a few favourite tracks: some that talk from the heartbroken lover’s point of view; some representing the proud and stubborn dumper; and of course beautiful love songs, inspired by Mr C. On one song in particular, she wears her heart on her sleeve, and it’s very touching to hear her pouring her heart out so publicly. Mrs C also told me about her dog JJ’s new puppy playmate, that’s been named Cha Cha. I then proceeded to inform her that me and my girls used to call a certain part of the female anatomy our ‘cha cha’. She laughed and said: “I might’ve guessed – there’s always some American-British language exchange humour when it comes to us!” 

Then, we decided to play an April fools joke on MC’s fans (otherwise known as ‘lambs’): She encouraged me to tell my Twitter following that she’d had her hair cut short and died dark brown. Within seconds, her Twitter planet of fans hit me back with: “Nice try Jas, but we know it’s an April fool.” They’re just too quick for me! I should’ve said she was shopping in Top Shop with me instead! They know her too well. 

After catching up on things, Mrs C slipped her curves into a long, black designer dress and went out to the car – and paparazzi – waiting outside Claridge’s Hotel. She was taken to her jet, which took her to South Africa where she and Mr C attended an event for a certain Mr Mandela. Mr Mandela is so full of life at 91 years of age. What an absolute living legend. 

Can you imagine the requests of the VIP guests at an event like this? A thousand bottles of every spirit, wine and champagne, loads of healthy foods, plenty of Fiji water, masseuse ladies, white flowers, candles, etc. It makes the things I’ve put on MTV expenses in the past look lame! 

Still, mine have been slightly unusual. There was the time I expensed an elephant for Jay Z to ride in Thailand; the time I took Sean Paul wine tasting in the south of France; the time I bought Snoop Dogg Irish flags to wave onstage in Dublin; the time I expensed MTV Base presenters Ace and Vis to ride horses in the sea and go dolphinswimming and sky-wiring in Jamaica – and these are just a few! 

The thing that I get caught for the most though, is buying Trevor Nelson sandwiches for lunch coz he never has any money on him! And does he ever pay me back? Does he heck! After all these years, he must owe me enough lunches for a month! Until next time, love you all like Encona hot pepper sauce!

Mariah Carey's Rock remake
Mariah Carey  is into covering the rock classics. Several years ago, on her "Glitter" album, Carey did a ballad-esque version of Def Leppard's "Bringing on the Heartache,". Now, she's revived Foreigner's "I Want to Know What Love Is" -- slated as a potential single for her album due out later this year. Mariah beat out Marc Anthony, who was also hoping to sing the love anthem.

Way to go Mariah!!!!!!! Tell'em girl !!!!!!!!! 

Looking at some paparazzi shots from Easter. Hello! Who follows a couple to their family's/in laws house on Easter!
I don't know what was worse, the bleak angles and bright peach dress just to be festive(we had fun!) Or the b.s. commentary/blogs.
It was Easter and we were trying to be nice so we just walked out Nick's aunts front door despite the paparazzi who had followed us.
ALL the way to San Diego! I figured,why not give them a pic even tho I look a stone mess after a long festive day....
You know, it WAS Easter Sunday and I felt bad they were out there all day. We almost brought them out a plate! Then in return we get a B.S story and some pics I couldve definitely lived w/out(Nick looked cute tho: ) Just so the fans who care know..those pics were taken outside Nick's Aunts house after a really nice day, just "for the record" And also..that dress and hair were not "red carpet" attire!

Liz Smith to dinner with Mariah soon
We all know Liz Smith for her columns, she recently was on the phone with Lee Daniels:

Lee Daniels is a guy I was once seated next to at a Vogue dinner party arranged by the giant fashion plate, Andre Leon Talley. After five minutes, I realized he had been a driving force, as a producer, who helped Halle Berry win an Oscar for "Monster's Ball." He was as impressed with his "overnight success" as I was!
Recently, not having seen Lee in ages, I wrote a story about his surprising next triumph -- as director and producer of the $3 million movie "Precious."

The Lionsgate movie, opening Nov. 6, won three awards at Sundance. And it won Oprah's backing. It stars young Gabourey ("Gabby") Sidibe as the tormented teenager whose father impregnates her, whose classmates bully her and whose witch of a mother beats her. (Lee says the latter role is that of a classic villainess, acted by award-winning comedienne Mo'Nique "in a way that makes you ask 'whatever happened to Baby Jane.' ")

Lee was full of raves for another actress, Paula Patton, who plays a lesbian who intervenes on behalf of the abused girl. Mariah Carey, who is one of Lee's pet talents, has a role here also, and Lenny Kravitz plays a nurse.

"Did Oprah really back this film all the way?" I ask Lee who is kidding around on the other end of the phone. He settled down: "Indeed she did. She connected to it with bells and whistles and is an executive producer with Tyler Perry."

Daniels is a guy on the verge, concerned that he makes the right choices. He says he is looking forward to working with Berry again. He is being offered big money to make big films, but wants to be sure he is doing the right thing, "because we never had money to do movies like this before...though this one cost us only $3 million."

Lee is doing the right thing, I think. At least, he agreed to take me to dinner with Carey, a long admired mutual friend, and with Kravitz, on whom I have had a big crush since being introduced to him in Orso one night whereupon he rose, crushed me to his chest and gave me a big kiss.

Celebrity hunter and autographs collector meets Mariah in Cape Town!
NOT everyone can boast that they have managed to meet R&B superstar diva Mariah Carey twice in the same week – or even came within metres of the musical icon. But that is exactly what I did when she recently popped into South Africa for the opening of Sol Kerzner‘s One & Only Hotel at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town.

Celebrities like Sharon Stone, Robert DeNiro, Clint Eastwood, Morgan Freeman, Matt Damon, Marisa Tomei and Mariah were all here.

The minute I heard Mariah was due to visit SA, it became my number one mission to track her down and fulfil a lifelong dream – to be photographed with my idol and get her autograph for my collection.

Having amassed around 4500 autographs, Mariah‘s (or Mimi as her true fans call her) was at the top of my list and I was prepared to do anything (well, almost) to make sure I got up close and personal with her. I always knew that if she ever set foot in the city, I‘d map out a plan to track her down in person and we‘d hopefully meet. Little did I know that it would take some tricky work to dodge the bodyguards and other hysterical fans to accomplish my mission.

Mariah wasn't able to perform at the One&Only Grand opening
Remember she posted on her Twitter page: "Bebe Winans just made me sing(a little bit) after I JUST had a root canal..bleak!"

Well, today The Times South Africa writes the following:
And what about that famous singer, whose surprise visit set local fans’ hearts aflutter after she Twittered that she was “headed for Africa” a few days ago?

Well, Mariah Carey, who landed in Cape Town on Thursday morning with an entourage of seven, wasn’t quite the belle of Sol’s ball, after she complained of a toothache and had to be rushed to a dentist. 

She was probably the last to arrive at the bash (long after midnight) and all she had to offer were a couple of her signature eight-octave raves from her seat in the crowd, after Bebe Winans offered her his microphone.

Mariah jets in as the stars come out to play at Sol's hotel
Superstar diva Mariah Carey arrived in Cape Town on Thursday to lead the festivities at the glamorous opening of Sol Kerzner's new hotel.

One&Only, next to the Two Oceans Aquarium in the V&A Waterfront, opens on Thursday night after an investment rumoured to have totalled R1-billion.

The internationally famous hotelier - best known locally for building the vast Sun City out of the dry bushveld in the Pilanesberg mountains in the North-West province - is expected to put on one of his famously lavish shows to open his Cape Town masterpiece.

A Hollywood-style red carpet is expected to be rolled out to welcome stars Robert de Niro, Sharon Stone, rapper Mos Def and Bebe Winans. Former model Yasmin le Bon will be there, with daughter Saffron. 

Matt Damon, who is in Cape Town working on a film about the 1995 Rugby World Cup-winning Springboks, will join them, and had supper with de Niro and Kerzner on Wednesday night. Damon will play Springbok captain Francois Pienaar in the Clint Eastwood-directed flick. 

Local stars attending tonight are said to include Yvonne Chaka Chaka, Sibongile Khumalo and Jonathan Butler.

The 131-room hotel is marketed as a super-luxury "six-star" establishment, and guests will be fed from two restaurants bearing celebrity chefs' names. Gordon Ramsay of London will open one of his "maze" restaurants, and alongside him will be "Nobu", after Nobu Matsuhisa, the Japanese-born chef who is widely credited with bringing sushi to the Western world. 

The hotel was designed by Capetonian architectural firms Dennis Fabian Berman and Ruben Reddy and built by contractors WBHO..

Thursday night's festivities will be hosted by Kerzner and his wife Heather and Moss Mashishi, the former head of SA Tourism who heads Matemeku Investments, Kerzner's local partner.

No need to send mean e-mails
I swear I didn't know Mariah was making a stop in the UK and would spend the day at her usual hotel in London.  I can understand some London fans are disappointed (even some are mad), but it was not a promotional visit and that's why fans weren't invited to go great Mariah.  For your information, it's not my style to hide stuffs!
