Nicki Minaj needs to get her act together is she wants to be taken seriously as an actress. Step one: Learn costars names!

Don't call it a feud just yet. Leslie Mann is way too classy for that!

BUT it turns out that on the set of their new movie, The Other Woman, in which Nicki is a costar, she couldn't seem to remember Leslie;s name!

Actually calling her a co-star is a bit of an overstatement...it's more of a cameo appearance and she was in FULL diva mode!

Leslie says,"Nicki Minaj never remembered my name. She just referred to me as 'lady'. She would just say, 'Come, lady'. And I was like, 'OK!' "

I'm thinking maybe be a bit more prepared next time? Couldn't hurt, right!?

mariah carey hot 97

If you watched season 12 of 'American Idol' it probably won't come as a surprise that Mariah Carey didn't enjoy her time on the reality singing competition.

During a radio interview with Hot 97, the singing diva dished about her time on the long running Fox show, "Honestly, I hated it. I thought it was going to be a three-person panel."

She elaborated, "They gave me a nice dangling monetary moment, and I was just like ... 'Okay. Randy Jackson will be there. I've known him forever, he used to play bass for me. Like, this isn't a big deal. This will be nothing.' But it wasn't that ... It was like going to work every day in hell with Satan."

Hell with Satan? One can only imagine that she was speaking about Nicki Minaj since we know she adores Randy Jackson, and who could say anything bad about Keith Urban?

She later recanted and said, "I'm just playing. It didn't affect me that much. I was disappointed."  Carey claims that she loved the contestants but didn't come back for "political reasons."

Season 13 will kick off with a mix of old and new judges: Keith Urban, Randy Jackson, Harry Connick Jr. and Jennifer Lopez.

Carey has decided to stick with what she enjoys, "I like being in the studio better and going on my own tours, etc.  So we're going back to that."

who wore it best alexander mcqueen

During the month of August, two Hollywood celebrities stepped out in the same Alexander McQueen stain glass print bodycon dress.

The gorgeous multi-colored stretch-jersey dress, retailing for $1,275.00, first hugged the curves of Nicki Minaj on August 7, when she shared an Instagram photo before heading out to take in the L.A. party scene.

Hayden Panettiere wore the same look, with a new hairdo that featured a fringe of bangs, during an appearance August 28 on 'Late Night with David Letterman,' more pics here.

The 'Super Bass' singer accessorized her ensemble with Barbie pink lipstick and matching nail polish, while the 'Nashville' actress rocked bright red lips and was sporting blue nail enamel.

These ladies are pretty evenly matched in their dress war.  That said, which of the popular celebrities do you think rocked the look best?

officially out

It didn't take long for 'American Idol' to lower the boom on Season 12 judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj.  Both divas have been booted from the Fox network after the worst ratings in the show's history.

'American Idol' producers and the network released this statement: "Mariah Carey is a true global icon -- one of the most accomplished artists on the planet -- and we feel extremely fortunate that she was able to bring her wisdom and experience to the 'American Idol' contestants this season.  We know she will remain an inspiration to 'Idol' hopefuls for many seasons to come."

Minaj hit Twitter shortly afterward to reveal that she is also off the show, "Thank you American Idol for a life changing experience!  Wouldn't trade it for the world!  Time to focus on the Music!!! Mmmuuuaahhh!!!"

FremantleMedia producers acknowledged the contributions of the 'Super Bass' singer, "She is a superstar who brought a level of honesty and passion to the show."

Randy Jackson announced his departure a week prior to the May 16 finale.  That leaves only Keith Urban still blowing in the wind.  Reports indicate that the Season 13 judging panel will be comprised of former 'Idol' talent.  Jennifer Hudson and Adam Lambert are rumored to be negotiating contract offers.

nicki minaj to make big screen acting debut

Singer and 'American Idol' judge Nicki Minaj has been cast as an "opinionated assistant" in the film 'The Other Woman.'

Her debut big screen role is a comedy centered on a man engaged in multiple affairs who underestimates his lovers.  When one of them realizes she is not her boyfriend's primary lover, she teams up with his wife to plot revenge.

Nicki's high profile co-stars include Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton.

The project will be directed by Nick Cassavetes of 'The Notebook' fame, with filming set to begin in May 2013.  The Trinidadian-born rapper will play a law firm assistant.

Minaj, 30, continues to dispute claims that her music lyrics imply she is bisexual.  She said in a recent Vibe interview: "I just embrace all people of all lifestyles and I don't tell them they are bad people.  But I feel like people always wanna define me and I don't wanna be defined."

nicki minaj elle magazine cover

'American Idol' judge Nicki Minaj is known for her bright pink lips but switched it up for the April cover of Elle magazine when she opted for an Au natural look.

The cover line reads:  "Nicki Minaj, no wig, no costume, the American Idol diva like you've never seen her before."

She had this to say about her recent make-under photo shoot, "When I saw myself with barely any makeup at, it was such a… like, I'm so, so attached to my pink lipstick, it's hard. I feel that it's become a part of me. To go in front of the camera, without pink lips or big ol' crazy lashes— you know, nothing— I felt naked. It was scary! So this photo shoot was a real accomplishment in my eyes."

Minaj recalls her difficult school years, "I went through a lot of bullying early on. Girls made my life a living hell. We had come to America from a different country. My brother and I had accents. It was very tough. So I've always put up this wall— it was a self-defense mechanism growing up— because I was almost expecting people to attack me. And I still have it. It's sad."

Her advice to women: "Even if you're doing a nine-to-five job, treat yourself like a boss. Not arrogant, but be sure of what you want— and don't allow people to run anything for you without your knowledge. You want everyone to know, Okay, I can't play games with her. I have to do right by this woman. That's what it's all about."

She has set high aspirations for herself, "My goal in the beginning was to buy my mother a house. Now I realize, Okay, if I really focus and become a key player in business, then I can build an empire. I'm thinking of a legacy that I can be proud of and wealth that my grandchildren can use to go to college. So world domination— in terms of providing for my family— is absolutely my goal."

You can see the full photo shoot for Elle magazine here.  We must say we liked the fresh faced look:

nicki minaj american idol

'American Idol' judge Nicki Minaj blamed heavy Los Angeles traffic as her reason for missing the first performance last night featuring the Top 10 contestants.

The 'Super Bass' singer totally missed contestant Curtis Finch Jr.'s rendition of 'I Believe' inspired by former 'Idol' winner Fantasia Barrino. Minaj quietly slipped in during a commercial break.

Host Ryan Seacrest kicked off the night by instructing the audience to keep their enthusiasm going for "3 of your 4 judges who have made it here tonight."  He added, “I hear she’s seven minutes out and there’s some congestion on the 405 … she  should be here momentarily.”

Randy Jackson chimed in, “I heard it was the 101.” Mariah Carey looked very put out by the whole thing and Keith Urban ... well you know him-- he just smiled.

Ryan asked the trio of judges: “Which one of you gave Nicki the wrong directions today?  Which one of you drained the fuel from her car?”

Nicki was tweeting while trying to get to the show, "Stuck in traffic *sighs*" followed by "F*** u Malibu!!!!!!!!!!!! *moves to Beverly Hills*."

nicki minaj feuds with steven tyler

Aerosmith rocker Steven Tyler suggested during a recent MTV interview that Nicki Minaj doesn't have what it takes to be an 'American Idol' judge.

He said, "You just have to give your opinion.  It wasn't hard for me, but I would imagine it's hard for some people, and they need a manager to say 'Shut the f---k up and give them your opinion.'"

"These kids, they just got out of a car from the Midwest somewhere and they're in New York City, they're scared to death, you're not going to get the best out of them.  If it was Bob Dylan, Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the cornfield!  Whereas, if it was Bob Dylan with us, we would have brought the best out of him, as we did with Phillip Phillips.  Just saying."

As you might imagine, Nicki Minaj hit Twitter to rant, "Steven Tyler said I would have sent Bob Dylan to a cornfield??? Steven, you haven't seen me judge one single solitary contestant yet.  I understand you really wanted to keep your job but take that up with the producers.  I haven't done anything to you.  That's a racist comment.  You assume that I wouldn't have liked Bob Dylan??? Why? Black? Rapper? What? Go f--k yourself and worry about yourself babe."

She added, "When Steven first went on Idol he was ridiculed by his peers & fans alike.  Called a sell out.  So what does he do? Ridicule the next judge."

The premiere of 'American Idol' season 12 will air on January 16, 2013 on FOX.

nicki and julie rock the same dress

During Sunday night's 40th Anniversary American Music Awards, Nicki Minaj hit the red carpet in a neon gown by Los Angeles based designer Monique Lhuillier.

If you were thinking you'd seen the bold yellow fashion statement previously ... you have.  The mermaid-inspired dress was worn by Modern Family star Julie Bowen during the 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards at the end of September.

Bowen's only accessory was a metallic clutch purse.  The new 'Idol' judge added a chunky necklace and matching cocktail ring to complete her look.

Perhaps Nicki was looking for some good karma when she stole Julie's look.  If that was her intention -- it worked because she picked up awards for Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Artist and Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Album.  Two months ago Julie won an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series while sporting the couture look.

Low and behold ... it seems the dress was worn in January at the Golden Globe Awards by actress Paula Patton.

Miley Cyrus tweeted a photo on Halloween to show off her Nicki Minaj costume that included a body-hugging leopard print catsuit, arm tattoo and bright yellow wig.

The former Disney celeb tagged her pic, "@NICKIMINAJ you a stupppppiddddd hoe#stupittttstupitttt."

What did the flamboyant rapper have to say about Miley's interpretation? Turns out she liked it.

Not only did she retweet, but she told Ryan Seacrest during a radio phone-in from London, "I think I'm gonna go as Miley Cyrus because she's going as me, and I just saw her picture on Twitter.  Should I do the short, blond cut like Miley?"

While chatting with USA Today, the Idol judge had nothing but praise for Miley, "Oh my god.  She is the best Nicki Minaj impersonator I've seen in my life.  She's adorable."
