Fluff: Mariah Carey was almost definitely drunk when she confessed to routinely firing her nannies.

Sometime last week, deep in the heart of Hollywood hills, Mariah Carey sat in front of her bejewelled mirror and thought to herself, “Does the world still know the full extent of my craziness? I’m just not sure. Perhaps it’s time to remind them.”

And so, the ’90s pop diva set out on a promotional tour, dropping by radio and TV stations to touch up her reputation as an epic diva.

The #Beautiful singer, 43, has successfully stumbled back onto the music scene with a series of flawless Crazy Diva Antics.

To kick it off, she told a very long story on live national television about three generations of Jack Russel puppies. She was almost definitely drunk. Later, she directed her husband Nick Cannon in a very special re-enactment of her favourite scene in Mean Girls (hint: they finally made ‘Fetch’ happen). She confessed that she fires nannies when they become important in her kids’ lives, while wearing what we can only assume are sexy pyjamas.

And the grand finale, the time she brought a full lighting team along to a radio interview. Because she definitely understands how radio works.

See Mariah in all her glory here:

John Travolta was trailed by Scientology minders 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for 2 years

Yep. Every single day.

John Travolta, 59, was supervised by two “minders” from the Church of Scientology every day for two years after the death of his son in 2009. The 59-year-old Grease star says he was supervised while he was grieving over the death of his teenage son Jett, who died from a seizure at their holiday home in the Bahamas.

John Travolta with his son, Jett, when he was alive.

Travolta says he couldn’t have survived the grief without his religion. But it’s definitely worth mentioning that Jett died from an epileptic seizure, and Scientologists don’t “believe in” the epilepsy medication that could potentially have saved his life.

Is it too brash to suggest John’s “minders” doubled up as “men instructed to keep a grieving father from spilling a controversial church’s dangerous secrets”?

Either way, John seems to be grateful for the company.

“They were with me every day after Jett died. They even travelled with me when I needed to get away. And for a solid two years it was like that. It was only in the second year that I started to take a break of a day or two just to see how I was doing on my own.”

Keeping Up With The Kardashians has been renewed. For a ridiculous amount of money.

Just when you thought the Kardashians couldn’t get any richer, they find a way.

Our favourite love-to-hate-it has just been renewed for another three seasons– and its dwindling ratings aren’t reflected in the whopping cost of the deal.

The E! series was renewed back in 2012 for more than $40 million, which was then the most expensive reality TV deal ever. Now, according to TMZ, they’ll be making more on the new deal than the last one, although terms have not been disclosed by the network.

TMZ reports:

‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians is currently shooting Season ten and the new deal will take the show into Season eleven and beyond. As one production source put it, “It is a HUGE show.”’

In other Kardashian news, speculation is brewing that Bruce won’t return to the show after season 10.

Inside the Oscars goodie bags…

So, even if you lose at the Academy Awards, you walks away with a pretty sweet compensation prize. It’s the grown-up famous person equivalent of lolly bags at the end of a kid’s birthday party. Except with more free pet weight loss program vouchers.

According to celebrity blogger Hurrican Vanessa, here are some of the items each goodie bag contains.

To be honest, it’s a bit of a letdown.

And while it does bring us joy to imagine Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield feeding their puppy $6000 worth of fancy designer pet food, we just thought there would be more… diamonds and chandeliers and cars and private jets and necklaces made from the down of an exotic goat raised by virgins in the South of France.

What do you reckon? Could you keep a straight face handing Robert De Niro a bag full of tea-flavoured pops?

Lil Kim is pregnant at 39. Should probably just call herself Kim now.

This is the first child for rapper/singer Lil Kim, and we’re not sure who the father is.

“I’m a mom, but I can turn it up a little!” she said on the red carpet at New York Fashion Week, while rubbing her baby bump.

Later, professional gossip Perez Hilton confirmed the news via Instagram. Where, if you’ve been paying attention this week, all famous pregnancy news breaks.

This photo appeared with the caption: “With a very PREGNANT Lil Kim”:

Congratulations Lil Kim. Might we suggest that by your 40th birthday, you just go by Kim?
