Minaj: Haunted by abortion They say it's the third rail of American public discourse, yet Nicki Minaj isn't afraid to share when it comes to abortion. While still a schoolkid at New York's famed LaGuardia performing arts high school, the Trinidad and Tobago-born songstress became entangled with an older man who got her pregnant. "I thought I was going to die," Minaj, 32, tells Rolling Stone. "I was a teenager. It was the hardest thing I'd ever gone through. " Minaj, who has said her latest studio album, Pinkprint , is her most personal, had an abortion, something that has "haunted me all my life.

I'M SURPRISED that everyone is speaking about Miley Cyrus' performance and is embarrassed by her behavior. Are you familiar with Robin Thicke's song "Blurred Lines" - an edited version because the original version was too risqué to air? Haven't we seen Nicki Minaj perform lap dances on stage? Haven't we seen Ciara twerk on stage? Haven't we seen Lil Wayne performing wearing his underwear on stage? Didn't we recently view Rihanna performing to the song "Cake," slapping her private parts?

El Chapo vs. Sean Penn Are cartel assassins after Sean Penn 's head? The blogosphere is alight with rumors that druglord Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán Loera , who was recaptured Friday after nearly six months on the lam, may blame Penn and Mexican TV star Kate del Castillo for leading cops to him. Penn met with El Chapo in October - no doubt to discuss the finer points of Sergei Eisenstein 's montage. As the New York Times reports, the gangster had never heard of Penn. It seems he agreed to see the American when Castillo, whom he seems to dig, vouched for Penn.

Wear those nails short and neutral, unless you are willing to experiment. Then, we say, go long. The trendlet The stiletto nail - ranging from midi to lengthy and coming to a triangular point - is bringing attention to our fingertips. Variations of the pointy nail like the ballerina (it has a blunt tip like the toe shoe) and the almond nail (this is rounder) are making manicures this holiday season interesting. Where's it come from? In the 17th century, well-to-do Chinese women liked to wear nails super-long and pointy to show their status.

As the aroma of funnel cakes and firecrackers wafted across the Benjamin Franklin Parkway on Friday night, Victoria Whartenby, 14, made a sacrifice for her favorite singer. The petite girl from Clayton would never catch a glimpse of Ed Sheeran with taller fans towering over her. So she got a better view - from the back of a garbage truck. "Anything for Ed," she said with a smile, unfazed by the smell, as she scanned over the crowd of concertgoers. Hundreds of thousands of people throughout the day packed Philadelphia, from the green yard behind Independence Hall to the steps of the Art Museum, to celebrate the city's annual Fourth of July celebration, billed as America's biggest free concert and party, and capped by a spectacular display of fireworks.

"I am the last thing on this planet as far as being a racist," Steven Tyler said on Canadian TV in a quasi-apology to Nicki Minaj , we hope the last salvo in one of the sadder media smackdowns in recent memory. It began when Tyler, an American Idol alum, attacked the show's new judges as ignorant. "You just have to give your opinion. It wasn't hard for me," Tyler told MTV. "If it was Bob Dylan [competing], Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the cornfield!" He added, "Whereas, if it was Bob Dylan with us, we would have brought the best of him out. " This put Minaj out of sorts.

LOS ANGELES - Adele won six Grammys, including song of the year, record of the year and album of the year, and Foo Fighters captured five at a Grammy ceremony that had the difficult task of celebrating music's best while mourning the loss of one of their greatest. Whitney Houston's death on the eve of the awards forced a delicate balance between the exuberance of the show's winners and performances with the loss. Adele, who owned the year's best-selling album with "21," was triumphant in her first performance since vocal-cord surgery forced the cancellation of a tour and months of vocal rest.

REIGNING RAP diva Nicki Minaj channeled Janet Jackson on "Good Morning America" yesterday when she experienced a full-on nipple slip.
