We told you last week that Christina Aguilera would not be returning to “The Voice” next season but now we found out that Cee Lo Green won’t be returning for season four either! They both want to come back after her tour for her new album "Lotus" and the sitcom he’s developing for NBC based on his life. However, unlike "American Idol" and "X Factor", "The Voice" has immediately named their replacements. Shakira will take Christina's seat, and Usher will take Cee Lo's chair. So we’ll have Shakira, Usher, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton for season four, but both Cee Lo and Christina are expected back for season five. By the way, "Us" magazine says both Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj were in talks to do "The Voice" before they landed gigs on "American Idol". They were going to be the replacements or seat-warmers for Christina and Cee Lo next season. Interesting.
Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj just started working together on "American Idol" two days ago and already, they are at each other's throats in the Big Fat Rumor of the Day. Supposedly, they kept interrupting each other while critiquing contestants and a source says, "These girls just don't like each other." But yesterday, Mariah said they haven't had time to hate each other. She joked, "How can we feud in two days? I think a feud takes a little longer to happen." And Nicki added, "We're getting along wonderfully, darling." Just keep in mind, as much as everyone loves a scandal, remember that “Idol” has $30 million invested in these two ladies.
It has become a little clearer why Lauryn Hill and Wyclef Jean can't patch things up and get the Fugees back together. In his upcoming autobiography "Purpose: An Immigrant's Story", Wyclef reveals that he and Lauryn were having an affair before the Fugees broke up. Wyclef was married at the time, Lauryn was not. But it ended because she lied and told him he was the father of her first child. He said, “In that moment something died between us and I couldn't forgive that. Our love spell was broken.” The boy's real father is Bob Marley’s son Rohan.
