Beyonce releases live “Flawless” video featuring Nicki Minaj & it’s ***flawless per usual.

What did you think of last night’s “American Idol” premiere?

Turns out the ratings were down 19 percent from last year… Yikes.

Read all about the Nicki vs. Mariah drama, then check out our full recap.

Nicki Minaj and her legion of fans have been calling themselves Barbies (“Barbz” for short) all over Twitter and blogs for a minute. Companies would spend a fortune for that kind of publicity, but Mattel hasn’t had a formal relationship with Minaj - until now.

The Nicki Minaj Barbie has landed: exclusive first look.

It’s been one hell of a year for Nicki Minaj since she released her debut LP, “Pink Friday,” last November (see: our 2010 cover above). Now, just as she’s announced her second album (“Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded,” out Feb. 14), Nicki’s capping off her biggest year yet by accepting Billboard’s Rising Star Award at our annual Women in Music Event on Dec. 2. She’ll appear at the event alongside our Woman of the Year, Taylor Swift. We can’t promise another “Super Bass” duet, but we’re crossing our fingers.

And barbz, she’s giving you some love on this one, telling us: “My nation of barbz and I have come a mighty long way; yet we are nowhere close to where God will take us. Sit back and enjoy the ride.” 

Congrats, Nicki!
