TGIF! Guess what flavor brew we're sipping on this morning:

  • Nicki Minaj will be opening the 2011 American Music Awards! This is the latest gig for the rapper who performed at Versace's H&M party and the Victoria's Secret fashion show this week. [Hollywood Reporter]

  • Justine Simmons is opening up about having TV cameras in her home. "I think the biggest challenge was when the passing of Victoria happened. But I think God prepared us. He let us know that show wasn't about us, personally; it was about us helping others. I knew right away that this is God and other people are going to be helped through our experience."

  • Sure pregnancy has its perks. But for Mariah Carey, it made her voice stronger. "Right now I feel like pregnancy actually helped me vocally," said Carey. "At this moment my voice is in great shape." [Grio]

  • Busta Rhymes is paying tribute to his good friend Heavy D in a new song. Listen to it below. It's called "You Ain't Wait Till I'm Gone."
