Mariah Carey is fed up with her record label Island Def Jam. As previously reported, the singer's upcoming album release has been delayed, but a reason wasn't given. According to Perez Hilton, MC reportedly felt neglected by the label after they released her single -- "#Beautiful" which wasn't promoted to her standards.

He continued, "I wanted to take this opportunity to let all know that neither my song nor its lyrics have any association with the organization. As I've learned more about The Take Back The Night Foundation, I'm moved by its efforts to stop violence against women, create safe communities and encourage respectful relationships for women -- Something we all should rally around."

Ed Sheeran apparently relates to Justin Bieber in more ways than one. Rumors surfaced a few weeks ago that the singer was hooking up with Selena Gomez and when MTV News asked him about it he said, "Well she's dating Bieber, isn't she? And he's pissing in mop buckets." Ed was referring to the video that was released last week -- where JB was urinating in a mop bucket and then cursed a photo of Bill Clinton. But he wasn't throwing jabs at at the singer because they actually have something in common. He told the site, "I pissed in a bin once. On a bus. Really late at night after a festival. So I can appreciate Bieber's struggle." He added, "I do like Bill Clinton though. I met Bill Clinton -- he's a very nice guy. Yeah, Bill Clinton's cool. But that's kind of like the equivalent of me sh*tting in a shoebox and saying I didn't like the Queen."
