We may have to wait until Christmas to see James Franco and Seth Rogen in 'The Interview,' but the pair are already hard at work making sure that audiences are extremely, perhaps uncomfortably familiar with their characters through a 'Very Special VMA Special.'

'American Idol' used to be the hottest show on television, but after 13 years, it's starting to show its age. The show's ratings have slipped from regularly having 30 million viewers to now somewhere around 11 million.

Bubbly rapper Nicki Minaj seems to be taking a note from Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte in terms of capitalizing on success and riding the fame train till it runs off the track.
Although we've unofficially known for some time that Minaj would be taking on the role of 'American Idol' judge, the Fox hit reality series only recently made the news official. And now that she's achieved a firm spot in reality television, it doesn't look like she wants to give it up. In fact, she's spreading her wings further into the genre and might even get her own reality series on E!.

When the 'Toy Story' trilogy didn’t give Mrs. Potato Head the spotlight she craved, she changed career paths and broke into the music industry. And now she's one of the newest judges on 'American Idol,' along with Keith Urban, Mariah Carey and Randy Jackson.

For a show that hasn't mattered in the cultural landscape for about five years now, there sure has been a lot of a back-and-forth and debate about who is going to take the empty judge's seats on 'American Idol.'  Many names were bandied about, but it looks like those two seats next to Randy Jackson and Mariah Carey will be filled by Keith Urban and Nicki Minaj.

While US Weekly seemed to have the exclusive scoop on Nicki Minaj joining the 'American Idol' judging team (or should we say, they thought they had the scoop?) there's still some talk as to who could possibly fill in for Steven Tyler now that Mariah Carey is definitely on board. Should we have already assumed that rapper and Kim Kardashian's attention-seeking boyfriend Kanye West would be considered for the job? Probably.
