Muddy Monday. It's a bit scattered today beginning with Rihanna's undying love for Chris Brown. What else is new in the world? Well, Nicki Minaj is the newest "American Idol" judge and it's not carrying too well with R&B diva Mariah Carey. Who's the real monster? The mics got turned up after Usher gave his latest confessions. All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. The iPad

Pardon the above title, seemed like it was appropriate to do a "The Notebook" title but frame it into modern times. Looks like Chris Brown and Rihanna are unfazed by what we think and want to have their love locked down. In case there was ever any doubt, Media Take Out proves these two aren't worried about getting their love for one another on the low:


We Now Have CONCLUSIVE PROOF . . . That Rihanna Is STILL IN LOVE With Chris Brown!!! (Now Even The DOUBTERS Gotta Admit It) September 17, 2012: For all practical purposes, Rihanna admitted yesterday that she's STILL INLOVE with Chris Brown - and that the two are seeing each other. A fan of hers tweeted out an old pic of Chris and Rih together saying that "if you're in love, you don't give a F*CK who is watching." Chris and Rihanna have been clandestinely meeting at nightclubs and parties throughout Los Angeles for months. (Media Take Out)

We have seen these two out and about quite often lately. Do you think they even care their cover is getting blown so often? Are we ready to finally let them enjoy their personal lives or could this all be a publicity stunt to gain more attention? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Sugar & Spice

Keeping in tone with hot topics, could there be any more hotter one that Nicki Minaj joining the "American Idol" family? How about if she's already getting into it with a fellow musician? Contestant? Nope, but Mariah Carey of all people. TMZ has the inside on this ugly affair:

Mariah Carey wasted no time proving what we told you 2 weeks ago -- there's only room for one diva on "American Idol." Carey and Nicki Minaj went at it during the first "A.I." taping Sunday in NYC. When Nicki started critiquing a contestant, Mariah would interrupt -- not once, but many times. Each time Mariah interrupted, Nicki fought back by loudly talking over Mariah. One "A.I." spy said Mariah and Nicki tried to cover their disdain for each other but everyone saw through it, adding, "These girls just don't like each other." You may recall, we reported when producers called Mariah to tell her that Nicki would probably be joining her as a judge, she hung up the phone. (TMZ)

Could this really be going down? If so, isn't it sad that a huge hip-hop star and R&B diva can not patch things up and just enjoy how big of a moment this is for the both of them and the genres as a whole? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. My Confessions Part 3

Usher has gone through some pretty hard times and while we've heard some tales in the music, we've never actually felt or seen all the things he's talked about. Sure, there were a few instances with Tameka Foster and the child custody battle but in terms of where things went really wrong between them? Rap-Up has some pulled goodies from his interview with Oprah Winfrey:

On why he decided to proceed with the marriage: "I really wanted to do things right or at least the perception of what right may be. I impregnated this woman, we were in a relationship, we were in love, so I felt like this is the right way to do things. ... I don't know if I had the best point of reference. My father wasn't there, so I didn't want to be like him."

On when he knew the marriage was over: "I really felt the marriage was not gonna work before [youngest son] Naviyd was born. We tried to talk about it. We had counseling sessions about it."

On the death of his stepson Kile Glover: "I miss Kile and I happened to be in Los Angeles when I received a call from Tameka. She said I need to get back. Something happened with Kile up on Lake Lanier. I didn't know how real it was, so I reached out to [Kile's father] Ryan respectfully to get an understanding, and of course, he told me that there had been an accident. I said, 'I can fly Tameka back, would you like me to do that?' He said, 'Yes, get her back here as soon as possible.' I got her back on the phone, got her a plane, got her here." (Rap-Up)

You've got to give it up to Usher, he's been through a lot and maintained his head for the most part. He still puts out quality music after nearly 20 years of being an R&B star, split relationships, children and the whole nine yards. #SOHHWhatchaThink?
