Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon

Hot off the press this week Mariah and Nick stayed pure 'til marriage, Christina Aguilera has been hiding under a rock, T-Pain gets MAD at the media, and Diddy shows off his diva side.

PURE Bullsh*t

Guess we finally figured out the mystery behind why Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon jumped the broom so quickly. The multi-platinum singer claims she and her new hubby waited until their wedding to have "complete intimacy." While she doesn't specify exactly what that means, it's pretty clear we're to believe Nick didn't hit that until after they got married - a whopping two months into their relationship.

"It's not that we had no intimacy, we just didn't have complete intimacy," Mimi told the U.K.'s Daily Mirror newspaper. "It's just me and my feelings. I definitely don't want to push it on anybody else. But we both have similar beliefs, and I just thought that it would be so much more special if we waited until after we were married. And it was, and it still is."

Rebel Talking... If you believe Nick didn't "Touch Her Body" I've got a bridge to sell you in Brooklyn.

Pain In The A**

T-Pain's album THR33 Ringz hit stores on Tuesday (November 11), but members of the media seeking to interview the rappa-ternt-sanga, were subjected to the following list of stipulations before speaking to him:

* "Pain will only be discussing his album release on 11/11 and any other topics surrounding what he is currently doing."

* "He will only answer one question on Lil' Wayne and upcoming projects they have. No questions on picking favorite artists, who he would like to work with or any other kind of lists."

* "If you are fun with it that's fine, and shoot out 5 cool questions relevant to what's going on in his life cool [sic], otherwise he may he may [sic] get mad."

Rebel Talking... Well well well, sounds like somebody's dreads have been twisted too tightly! Clearly all the Wayne questions have put a hurtin' on somebody's ego. But wasn't Pain the one who promoted the idea in the first place--for publicity?

B'Day Bitchassness

Talk about Bad Boy! If you believe the New York Post Diddy went all diva on the designer he hired to decorate Manhattan nightclub Mansion for his birthday party:

"He was given a budget of $7,000 and 12 hours to create an all-white décor, including 1,000 white roses, blow-ups of Diddy and Barack Obama, and $2,000 of white fabric," a source for the Post said. "Diddy declared it dreadful and went into a major hissy fit, screaming, 'Show me the receipts!' and 'Get the money back!' to his assistant. Then he began ripping the fabric off the walls saying he hated it. He berated the poor young decorator to the point that the guy gave back $2,000 of the money he had spent."


Rebel Talking... Sounds like Diddy had a major case of "It's my party and YOU'LL cry cuz I'm Sean John..."

Fighting "Dirty"

A few weeks ago I mentioned Christina Aguilera has been accused of ripping off music newcomer Lady Gaga. Well, the LA Times had the balls to take it to Xtina herself and she brought the claws out like only she can!

"You know, that's funny that you mention that. This person [Lady Gaga] was just brought to my attention not too long ago. I'm not quite sure who this person is, to be honest. I don't know if it is a man or a woman. I just wasn't sure. I really don't spend any time on the Internet, so I guess I live a little under a rock in that respect.

Rebel Talking... Ouch, I think she just called Gaga a man. Wow, this gives me so much insight into those "sometimes I'm a superbitch" lyrics in "Keeps Getting Better."

But while you were listening to Beyonce's album, we were celebrating Barack's win and blasting Kanye West's "Amazing" new track.
