Early Movie Concept Art: See What Your Favorite Characters Could’ve Looked Like

Samuel L. Jackson’s Hurricane Isaac Tweets Send Readers Into a Whirl

Samuel L. Jackson is by far one of our favorite tweeters, thanks to Jimmy Fallon who taught the celeb how to use the social media site. For one, he made the 2012 Olympics that much more entertaining with statements like, “Did that Russian just do the ‘whoa Gurl Whut wuz in That Drank, dat Sh*t wuz Skrong’ Vault landing?!” However, his most recent sentiments regarding Hurricane Isaac threw people into a bit of a tizzy.

Kanye West In Talks to Judge ‘American Idol’? Is Nicki Minaj Out?

While US Weekly seemed to have the exclusive scoop on Nicki Minaj joining the ‘American Idol‘ judging team (or should we say, they thought they had the scoop?) there’s still some talk as to who could possibly fill in for Steven Tyler now that Mariah Carey is definitely on board.

Ever since Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler left the ‘American Idol‘ judges’ table — Tyler to focus on being a rock star and J. Lo to focus on her family — Fox went into overtime to try and land some big names to come and fill in those empty spots.

Though some rumors floated around referencing the possibility of former ‘Idol’ contestant Adam Lambert and Disney star Nick Jonas joining the panel, Fox ended up landing a queen of R&B music, Mariah Carey. That meant there was just one more spot left and we’ve just learned that it too went to a big name in the music world — Ms. Nick Minaj herself.
