So, does Nicki Minaj really want to kill Mariah Carey? American Idol producers say it’s just all fun and games among judges—and Nicki Minaj doesn’t want to kill Mariah Carey. “We love and support all of the judges and the fantastic work they are doing,” they said in a statement to Access Hollywood.

Stevie Wonder and his daughter Aisha Morris unexpectedly provided live in-flight entertainment on their way to perform at Radio City Music Hall Thursday. The superstar and Morris were winging their way from LA to New York to perform at Paul Simon’s Children’s Health Fund benefit concert, and tested out some tunes on the commercial flight. “Stevie was with a small entourage of four,” a spy said. “He and [Morris] started harmonizing and softly jamming . . . we basically got a private concert!”
TV hosts Jon Stewart and Bill O’Reilly faced off Saturday night for “The Rumble in the Air-Conditioned Auditorium,” and the billing lived up to its name. “My friend Bill O’Reilly is completely full of xxx,” Stewart said, opening the debate.

They did agree on a few things, like immigration reform and the right to chose your soda size. “I appreciate the fact that a man built like a yeti can move so fluidly,” Stewart told O’Reilly, who responded, “I admire someone who’s been in rehab six times and is still as successful as Stewart is.”
