On being happy at this point in her career and her long journey ahead:

“It feels good to be where I am now, but I still have a long way to go.  The jobs I have had have gotten me to this point, and I’m very excited about the journey ahead.”

On being a mother in the future and her thoughts on getting married:

“I want kids, but I won’t jump into a relationship because I am on a timeline. I don’t want to get married because someone said it was time. It
has to be right.”

Nicki Minaj’s Idol Meltdown!!!

Well Miss Pink seems to have had it with Mrs. Cannon! The not so soft-spoken Nicki Minaj let out a hell of a lot of F bombs towards Mariah Carey during a disagreement of a contestant’s performance at the Charlotte, NC auditions.  Minaj was very upset even stating “I told them, I’m not f—ing putting up with her f—ing highness over there,” says Minaj, at which point you can hear Carey react. “Figure it out!Minaj yells repeatedly. Carey continues responding throughout the video with “Ohhh, why, why, why?” as if she could care less what Minaj had to say.  There have been rumors circulating since about the beef between Carey and Minaj since it was announced that both chart topping artists were going to be judges on the struggling show!  This video puts everything out in the open; you judge for yourself if you think Nicki overreacted and that Mariah could care less. But perhaps the most awkward part with Keith Urban being stuck in the middle and sort of not knowing what to do to stop Minaj’s tirade.Let’s see if this makes the promo commercials. Visit TMZfor the full the video!

What is your take on this nonsense?

About Pitch Perfect

Beca (Anna Kendrick) is that girl who’d rather listen to what’s coming out of her headphones than what’s coming out of you.  Arriving at her new college, she finds herself not right for any clique but somehow is muscled into one that she never would have picked on her own: alongside mean girls, sweet girls and weird girls whose only thing in common is how good they sound when they sing together, in the new out-loud comedy Pitch Perfect.

When Beca takes this acoustic singing group out of their world of traditional arrangements and perfect harmonies into all-new mash-ups, they fight to climb their way to the top of the cutthroat world of college music competitions.  This could wind up either the coolest thing they’ll ever do or the most insane, and it will probably be a little of both.

Loaded with new takes on old favorites to hits of right now that are seamlessly mixed together, mashed-up and arranged like you’ve never heard before, Pitch Perfect is directed by Jason Moore, who opened our eyes to the very misbehaved life of puppets in the surprise Broadway sensation Avenue Q.

PITCH PERFECT hits theaters on October 5th.
