“American Idol” is coming back for a second season, but not everyone is thrilled about it. Clay Aiken is slamming the show for being too nice.

Nobody will ever remember,” Katy said. Lionel advised, “When it happen like that, it’s called recovery. How well did you recover? And the answer is, fantastic. You did a great job.” Luke Bryan coddled the contestant saying, “So what happened to you is OK darlin’… It happens to me, this one, and that one right there.” Clay wasn’t having it and sounded off on Twitter.

Nicki Minaj Announces New Album ‘Queen’

All hail Queen Nicki. After much anticipation, Nicki Minaj has revealed the title and release date for her new album Queen.

She made the royal announcement in grand fashion on the red carpet at Monday’s Met Gala in New York City. Queen Nicki stunned in a red Oscar de la Renta gown before revealing that her fourth album will arrive June 15.

“It’s a big night for me because I just let the world know that my album is coming on June 15, and it’s called Queen, and I can’t wait,” she told reporters.

During an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 last month, Nicki teased the title. “[Fans] are gonna love the title of the album,” she said. “It fits everything that I am right now, where I am in my life.”

Queen has spawned two singles so far, “Chun-Li” and “Barbie Tingz,” for which she released a pair of videos last week.

Before dropping what she calls her best work yet, Minaj will perform both songs on the season finale of “SNL” on May 19.

Queen marks the follow-up to 2014’s The Pinkprint, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
