Her one-year contract with the US talent show will bring her in a cool $18m beating even Britney Spears mega money deal with the US X Factor which will earn her $16m this year. Looked good at the time didn’t it Britney. We doubt there is any wriggle room in her contract to renegotiate in the light of Mariah’s deal.
Mariah is of course replacing Jennifer Lopez on the judging panel. It is thought that Lopez originally muttered some noises about leaving the show in the hope that she could negotiate herself a higher fee. Lopez has always denied this saying that her decision as to whether she stayed with the show had nothing to do with the money.
Mariah seems delighted with her new role saying: “As a singer, songwriter and producer, it’s going to be fun and rewarding to help find new talent and give back to American Idol. I’m currently in the studio working on my new album and its first single, ‘Triumphant,’ which will be out early next month. I can’t wait to channel my creative energy as a part of this show which is a massive global phenomenon.”
Lingerie for the Olympics – top US lingerie chain Victoria’s Secret is opening its first UK shop in West field Stratford City. The shopping centre, which is just a short walk from the main Olympic site, is the biggest in Europe.
The new UK store will stock the full range of VS lingerie in the 12,500 square ft of space including the Bombshell, Dream Angels and Very Sexy lingerie collections.
To mark the opening of the new Victoria’s Secret shop the company is releasing Victoria’s Secret London a new limited edition perfume.
It looks like Victoria’s Secret are opening their new store at exactly the right time. A new study reveals that on average women now own 34 pairs of knickers, a figure drastically up from a previous 1999 survey which had a much more paltry figure of 12.
It seems that Fifty Shades of Grey is also responsible for an increase in the amount of sexy underwear that women are now buying.
The big hint for men looking to treat someone to a special set of underwear is that the vast majority of women surveyed said that they preferred white for both everyday and special occasion underwear.
