Finally Friday! The end of the week is here and what better way to start it off than with Beyoncé, although it seems like people aren't too fond of all the bowing down she's demanding. Speaking of bowing down, is Sisqo on the verge of bowing out of the music industry? Performing at local bars is enough to make anyone consider a career change. Maybe he can try to dine with Mariah Carey, since word is she intentionally did not invite Nicki Minaj to a birthday celebration. All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Bow Down, Bey

Is Beyoncé rubbing too many people the wrong way? It seems like her new album is going to come out later than expected and it's alll because people aren't really digging her new stuff which is quite funny when you think about it. This is Bey we're talking about, right? All Hip Hop Rumors has more:


I haven't had reason to say somebody got their wig pushed back in a minute. But, the word out there on the streets is that Beyonce has gotten her wig pushed all the way back to the FALL. Now, you know B has everybody talking and has the women losing their minds calling her King Bey. But, on the low, the songs she has released, including the controversial "Bow Down" have not done well. Insiders say, they have flopped, and they were supposed to be major hits. Now, apparently there was another song called "I Been Down," but I never heard that one. The album was supposed to come out in April, but now rumor has it, it may not come until the fall. People are saying that they will keep leaking songs to see if one catches fire. We all have to bow down at one point or another, I guess. I suspect it will drop before the fall, but I think that this tour is the main focus and, once its out of the way, they will pull it together. Jay famously said, "I will not lose" and I am sure that transfers to his wife. This "set back" only means that B will get in "comeback with a vengeance mode" and life hell for her haters. (All Hip Hop Rumors)

There's a lot which can be said to help defend Bey in this case but when you realize Justin Timberlake dropped "Suit & Tie" last month, put out a new album last week and went practically platinum in seven days time? Seems like Bey might really have to go back to the drawing board.

2. Where Are They Now?

Is it really over for Sisqo? He may not have put out a lot of music in recent memory but there's some artists which are able to pull those things off. You have Prince, Maxwell and even Lenny Kravitz, shouldn't Sis be in that same category? TMZ has some pretty shocking inside:

"She had dumps like a truck truck truck ... " In the mood now? Good ...'cause we got SisQó performing his giant, monster, ENORMOUS hit, "Thong Song" last night -- which is HUGE -- but where he performed it is the real story here. We found the R&B star doing his signature song from 2000 in Washington, DC suburb ... Alexandria, VA. But not in an arena -- a sports bar. A REALLY cramped, small sports bar. You gotta see the video ... 'cause poor SisQó has to dodge bouncers and waitresses just to do a dance move. Reminder ... "Thong Song" went all the way to #3 on the charts ... and SisQó used to perform it to sold out arenas with thousands of people singing along, "That thong thong thong thong thong!" Things change. Fun fact (for everyone but Sisqó): "Thong Song" was blocked from #1 by ... Santana's "Maria Maria." (TMZ)

There is a such thing as doing someone a favor. Maybe this was just a small case of Sis having to help someone out with a tab by performing there? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. It's My Party

Is Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey back to feuding? Probably not but whenever there's a story that involves the both of them, everyone really tunes in. Turns out Mariach turned 43 this week and had a little party without the Barbie. Bossip has the scoop:


Hey, it's her birthday... can you blame her? Seems like Mariah Carey had a great birthday without her fellow "American Idol" judge. Via Page Six reports: There was no Nicki Minaj in sight when Mariah Carey celebrated her 43rd birthday at Wolfgang Puck's Cut in Beverly Hills on Wednesday night. Spies said the "Idol" judge, who famously feuded with Minaj on the show, dined with a group of 13 people including her husband, Nick Cannon, and fellow judge Randy Jackson. A spy said, "It was quite a low-key dinner. Mariah drank champagne and shared the signature banana cream pie for dessert." (Bossip)

In all fairness, is this really as serious as its being made out to be? Mariah likely didn't have her entire family, the producers of "American Idol" or even her husband Nick Cannon there either. Oh wait, maybe Nick was there but to think Nicki was "supposed" to be invited or show up is a little much. #SOHHWhatchaThink?

That about wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip sites.
