Nicholas Fonseca of Entertainment Weekly weighs in on the new albums coming out from Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Jennifer Lopez, and Shania Twain. EW gives Aguilera revival odds of 5-2, Shania Twain 1-1, Whitney Houston 10-1, Jennifer Lopez 3-1, and Mariah Carey 5-1. Perhaps the most shocking quote comes from a program director for one NYC-area Top 40 station on Mariah’s ‘Through The Rain’ single. “It’s a piece of sh**,” the person said. “I’m not playing it.” The full story at EW.com has since been removed.
J.Lo And Puffy Never Married Because Of Messy Pre-Nup
October 18, 2002 – Now magazine reports that Jennifer Lopez never married Sean ‘P. Diddy’ Combs because their pre-nuptial agreement was too complicated. “Jennifer never quite got him to the altar – the pre-nup was simply too messy and they could never work it out. But she’ll have no such problems getting Ben to be her husband,” said a source. “She has Ben eating out of the palm of her hand. He’ll go along with anything she wants as long as she stays with him. He figures a wedding is permanent and that’s just what he wants. He wants Jen permanently. He’s totally flipped for her. If she says, ‘Let’s elope tomorrow,’ he would. But Jen doesn’t want to elope – she wants another big fat wedding.”
