Mariah Carey said that there are too many new R&B chicks these days, and not enough true divas. “I don’t really follow every new act — they come out constantly…There are so many, it’s often hard to keep track, and sometimes they’re here today and gone tomorrow,” Carey said. “I admire my friends, like Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj — people who seem destined to be doing this for a living with longevity…I’m a strong woman who works extremely hard to be able to have my life the way I want it. So, if that makes me a diva, then okay.” Word. [Bossip]

Former ‘American Idol’ judge Paula Abdul was recently asked by ‘CBS Sunday Morning’ interviewer Julie Chen to adress popular misconceptions about herself. “I am intelligent. I am,” Abdul claimed. “Having a brain, that’s a concept, yes, with Paula Abdul. I have a brain.” She then went on to deny her rumored alcohol/drug problem. “I’ve never had a drinking problem…Even though I’ve been in this business for quite some time…I’ve never physically been drunk in my life. I’ve never been drunk in my life. I don’t use recreational drugs. But, I am goofy.” Sure. [MSNBC]
