Two of Hollywood's most eccentric stars made appearances on the MTV Video Music Awards red carpet last night.

First, rumored new American Idol judge Nicki Minaj posed in a skin-tight outfit, yellow hair sprouting out the sides of a stylish black hat.

Then there was Ke$ha, who... looked sort of normal. For Ke$ha at least. Flowing blonde hair and a lack of facial glitter is simply not what we expect from this singer.

Did the regular look throw you off? Did it top Nicki's outfit? Compare and vote below.

The Fierce Five - Gabby Douglas, 16, McKayla Maroney, 16, Kyla Ross, 15, Jordyn Wieber, 17, and Aly Raisman, 18 - appeared at the MTV VMAs last night.

One of America's gymnastics golden girls in particular made her presence felt, however, during Alicia Keys' performance of "Girl on Fire" late in the show.

Midway through the song, Nicki Minaj appeared on stage to perform her verse, which included a shout-out to Douglas, who then tumbled onto the stage!

Nicki Minaj rapped: "Took me on the balcony, telling me to jump with her / Yeah, I'm in the ghost but I ain't doing stunts with her / I ain't trying to be that, haters want to see that / But I got 'em aggy, cause I win the gold like Gabby."

Cue Gabby!

Douglas strutted past Keys and performing a series of cartwheels, jumps and back hand springs, flashing her million-dollar smile and high-fiving Keys as she left.

Talk about making an entrance and an exit. The lame Russian judge probably found some obscure reason to deduct points, but we'd give Gabby a perfect 10.

Our only regret? That she didn't do this for every artist. The Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz MTV performance really could've used a little gymnastics flair.

One of the more outspoken artists in the music business, Nicki Minaj makes her political leanings very clear in a verse from the track "Mercy," which is included on Lil Wayne‘s "Dedication 4" mixtape.

So, who has Minaj poetically endorsed?

“I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney," she raps in the following video, adding (we presume) of the Democrats: "You lazy bitches are f-cking up the economy."

Minaj isn't the only celebrity who will be pulling a lever in Romney's direction in November. Chuck Norris worries that another four years of President Obama will send the nation into darkness, while Clint Eastwood expressed his concerns by talking to an empty chair.

Who will YOU be voting for in this election?

Despite reports to the contrary yesterday, Nicki Minaj is NOT officially an American Idol judge.

According to a new source, show producers first must decide whether Randy Jackson will remain on the panel before they decide on just who sits alongside Mariah Carey.

And if it were up to Carey, that individual would most certainly not be Minaj.

TMZ says Carey hung up the phone in anger after learning of Nicki's possible hiring. She was reportedly angry over the inclusion of another female on the show, especially a female 13 years her junior.

While the Powers That Be deal with that issue, they are considering Brad Paisley, Keith Urban and/or Enrique Iglesias as either the fourth judge (if Randy stays) or the third judge (if he leaves and Minaj does, indeed, come on board).

There's also another topic of controversy about which producers are worrying: would a panel of Minaj, Jackson and Carey be a turnoff to middle America?

Hey, we aren't the ones asking. We're just relaying the show's concerns and questions.

American Idol Season 12 will officially feature some serious girl power.

Following weeks of rumors and speculation, multiple sources now confirm that Nicki Minaj is in as a new judge on the country's must-watched television show.

While Fox is yet to release a statement on the hiring, an insider tells Us Weekly that Minaj is 100% signed, while another says this hip hop star is "definitely doing it."

Minaj joins Mariah Carey on the panel, with the status of Randy Jackson remaining up in the air.

According to a new report, the longtime judge will NOT be returning for Season 12, as Idol will go with a four-person table that also includes Keith Urban and Enrique Iglesias.

Minaj, meanwhile, embarks on a world tour this October. Her latest album led to a pair of top 10 singles ("Starships" and "Pound the Alarm") and the artist is a supporter of free universal health care.

Are you excited for Nicki to join American Idol?

 

UPDATE: This is reportedly NOT a done deal, and Carey won't be very happy if it becomes one.

Nicki Minaj is back with a new music video, and she was also back in her native country of Trinidad for its filming.

The colorful artist returned to her homeland over July 4 weekend to shoot the video for "Pound the Alarm," which features fun party goers and dancers with headdresses and unusual outfits, all covered in feathers and beads.

In other words: it's a Nicki Minaj music video. Pretty standard, really. Watch now!

If Nicki Minaj does become an American Idol judge, producers can now rest assured that she'll handle any surprises during a live show.

The singer proved as much on stage in Miami this week, as a fan rushed up to Minaj during a concert and attempted to give her a hug. But the artist remained calm, security swooped in and put a SERIOUS beatdown on the idiot and the show went on.

"Florida u were amazing tonight!!!! Thank u soooo much for the love!!!!! Mmmuuuuaaahhhh!!!!!" Nicki Tweeted after the show.

Earlier this year, Demi Lovato took cover after a similar incident in Paraguay.

With rumors of Adam Lambert on American Idol making the rounds, show sources now confirm that TV's top-rated program really is looking to make wholesale changes.

It may very well replace Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler.

"No one has signed any contracts yet and producers are currently putting out feelers and setting up meetings to see who they can get," an Idol source tells E! Online, adding that the following names are under panel consideration:

  • Miley Cyrus, No Pants
  • Katy Perry Goes Retro
  • Nicki Minaj in Vogue
  • Picture of Fergie

Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Fergie, Katy Perry and Will.I.Am.

Sounds like ideal poll fodder! Vote now and decide which of these candidate would make the best American Idol judge:

Nicki Minaj recently commented on the feud between Chris Brown and Drake, her Young Money label-mate, by claiming that she "doesn't approve" of the beef.

The now-infamous Chris Brown-Drake fight that broke out last month at an NYC club left many injured and got the establishment shut down in the aftermath.

All over Rihanna too, allegedly. Speaking to the BBC, Nicki weighed in:

  • Chris Brown Fashion
  • Nicki Minaj Fashion
  • Drake, Glasses

"I don't approve of talented people doing things that aren't conducive to an amazing career. I spoke to Drake, and I told him from the bottom of my heart how I felt."

"I'm like, 'Baby, you are a superstar, and I need you to realize that."

Speaking to Tim Westwood on BBC Radio 1 Xtra, Minaj revealed that, although she thought Drake was innocent, he still needed to be careful of his reputation."

"He did nothing wrong, of course. Rumors are rumous, and that there's what it is. Sometimes, you just need to go to bed. Go to the hotel and have an early nap."

"At the end of the day, there's nothing wrong with that."

Words to live by, Drizzy. Words to live by.

Whose side are you on in the feud?

Yvette Wilson passed away from cancer a few days ago, and while the actress' death has left Nicki Minaj in tears, it's also left her irate. At the American health care system.

In a series of Tweets posted not long after Wilson died, Minaj went off on current policy and even addressed President Barack Obama at one point.

“What’s sad is that when Yvette was bringing home the bacon, the gov’t was probably taking millions.On her deathbed though, #Nowheretobefound," Nicki wrote. "That should be a God given right! Even with Obama Care, too much involved. Just give FREE health care to all. @barackobama What can we do?

"@BarackObama I wouldn’t mind the millions they took if it was going to healthcare. Why should a poor person struggle to pay for MEDS sir?"

The President, of course, is too busy helping Amanda Bynes avoid a DUI charge, but Member Questo of The Roots replied to Minaj's Tweets with one of his own:

“@NICKIMINAJ i personally know that the white house administration would LOVE for you to use ur tweet power to raise health care awareness."

Are you in favor of universal health care, readers?
