    Mariah Carey rules out ‘X-Factor’?

    With half the judges’ panel for "The X Factor" leaving the show, there’s speculation that Mariah Carey may fill one of the open slots.

    Her hubby Nick Cannon, however, doesn’t think that move would make sense for Mariah.

    “Like Nicole Scherzinger, my wife is not a fan of judging people. Nicole actually did say that she is used to performing, and the judging thing is not really natural for her," he told Entertainment Weekly. "I really think that a lot of entertainers feel that way and I think these shows are really good shows, but when you get someone of status, or just big-time, career-wise, to do these shows, I personally think it’s a step down.”

    He added, “Why would my wife want to be on a show like that? For somebody who has a legendary career, I don’t know why they would do that.”

    Morgan Freeman doesn’t like Black History Month

    For Morgan  Freeman, the whole idea of Black History Month is "ridiculous." The actor recently told "60 Minutes" that February just isn’t enough time to cover all of Black America’s contributions and milestones.

    "You’re going to relegate my history to a month?" he asked reporter Mike Wallace. "Black history is American history."

    He stated, "I don’t want a Black History Month." In fact, the actor thinks that it would be a great idea to stop identifying people by race entirely.
