Kanye West, Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey would give "American Idol" the most star studded -- and expensive -- TV judge panel ever ... but will it work with 3 huge egos?? It could be awesome ... or an awesome implosion. We'll discuss.

Plus, you buying LeBron James' new Nike sneakers for $315? Harvey's outraged, but Evan says they're works of art!

Also, how did Lindsay Lohan end up on the scene of a crime -- again?!! Wait till you hear what was going on inside the all-night rager ... before police showed up.

CA should have a forehead tax. They would make millions just on Harvey's big shiny balding skull.

I swear is they get Kanya West and Nicki Minaj, I will no longer watch, vote, or put any of my money into this show. There's going downward but this is bottom of the barrel. Kanya is disrespectful to artists, likes fishd/cks, obnoxios and Nicki is a gutter sl*t without true talent. Neither of them should be judging because they don't know talent is it bit them in the arse. Idols. These two are NOT idols.

I live in one of the most conservative states in the nation, and no one was shocked or anything when we took our kids to see ParaNorman. We saw it on Friday, and my kids didn't even blink an eye at the comment the character made at the end. There was no questions asked so we didn't bring up the topic. They are 9 and 11.
