“I just finished recording my next song with a legendary artist, Steven Tyler from Aerosmith,” PSY said. “When I was in middle school, I literally cried when they were singing ‘Crazy’ or ‘Amazing’ or whatever, they were my lifetime role models, and now I am collaborating with Steven Tyler, what the fuck, man? I love my life.” More »

But (you knew there had to be a but, right?), if we’ve learned anything from the last 54 years, it’s that no matter how seemingly strange the paired performance, or how many pop stars are paying tribute to an icon, or who bum rushes the stage (we’re looking at you, Mr. “Soy Bomb” and Ol’ Dirty Bastard), the mind tends to forget these occasions. We’ve set out to fix that! Your BFFs at Idolator have rounded up eight Grammy moments so memorable, you wonder how they ever escaped from the clutches of your memory.
Give your mind a refresher starting above, with that time that Jay-Z performed with Linkin Park and Sir Paul McCartney at the 48th Annual Grammys. (Please note: Jay is wearing a John Lennon t-shirt.)
Next week, we’ll get to see all those Hollywood hopefuls start to get their first big taste of rejection in Tinseltown. I can barely contain myself. Like a vampire feasting on young, virgin blood, I grow strong by witnessing lifelong dreams being shattered on national television before my very eyes.
This past episode was also American Idol‘s last chance to jam in the last of the really bad auditions, so get ready for the parade of weirdos. More »
:: Nicki Minaj‘s wig stylist, Terrence Davidson, has quit. (You mean, Nicki wears wigs?!) Davidson called the experience “amazing” in a written statement, despite rumors that Nicki made derogatory statements about him. He hopes to use the notoriety as leverage for future wig-making workshops (seriously). [Celebuzz]
:: Steven Tyler has split from his fiancee Erin Brady. The Aerosmith icon and former American Idol judge proposed to Brady on Christmas in 2011. Friends of the couple say it’s for good. This would have made Tyler’s third marriage. [WENN]

:: Big Boi did not vote for President Obama. In a recent interview with Huff Post Live, the Outkast alum and open Libertarian stated that he actually voted for Gary Johnson despite assumptions that his ballot was with Barry O. [HipHopDX]

Tyler on Monday criticized Minaj’s judging abilities (serious matters, people!), causing the rapper to go on a Twitter tirade in which she claimed his remarks were racist. On Canadian entertainment show eTalk, Tyler addressed the controversy, saying, “I am the last thing on this planet as far as being a racist. I don’t know where she got that out of me saying I’m not sure how she would’ve judged Bob Dylan.” He added, “Maybe I spoke out of turn, but a racist I’m not, Nicki,” presumably in a Yoda voice. So, settled! We’re sure Nicki will never speak of this spat ever again.
Aerosmith’s “toxic twins” sat down with ABC backstage at the iHeart Radio festival and opened up about the still-ripe issue. Though the band joined Tyler on the May Idol finale for a performance of their new song “Legendary Child,” and Tyler has since left the show, it’s clear in the above interview that the sexagenarians still don’t quite see eye-to-eye on Idol.

Well, what did you expect him to say? That he discovered that reality show judging was his new calling, and he’s heartbroken to go back to the insanely successful rock band that made him a household name? Money and J.Lo is as good a reason as any to say yes to a job. More »
Carrie is an extremely talented, likable artist, so it makes sense why anyone would want to work with her. But the band’s main goal in getting the singer on their album was picking up more country fans. Alleges Mike Mullaney, Music Director of Boston radio station Mix 104.1, “At first, the rest of the band didn’t want to put it on there but their label convinced them, ‘Guys, this will get you airplay in red states.’ So that was that.” More »
