Timerlake has a
bit of family drama back home in Tennessee. According to TMZ, JT's aunt
-- Jane Harless was arrested after she reportedly stole thousands of
dollars from his parents in a check forging scam. Law Enforcement told the site
that Jane was arrested in Shelby County, T.N. on Friday after cops say that
they found evidence that she forged more than 100 bad checks. Apparently, JT's
aunt wrote checks out to herself and forged her brother's -- JT's step-dad,
spoken out about being compared to Mariah Carey. When Rolling
Stone asked the singer how it feels for her vocal range to be compared to
MC and she replied, "It's a blessing to get the comparison. When you look
at 'The Way' it's obvious, but I'm not worried about it. It's a massive compliment
-- she's the greatest singer in the world, like literally, [she's in] The
Guinness Book of World Records." She continued, "It's an
incredible compliment but it doesn't worry me, because when you listen to my
album as a whole, you get to know me." Ariana went on to say that she doesn't feel
pressured into having a sexually suggestive image like some of today's popular
artists. She explained, "I don't feel much pressure to fit in. I never
have. I've always just wanted to do my thing. I have really good friends and
good family and if I don't fit in somewhere else, I fit in at home."
Mel B has revealed that she had the
hots for her Spice Girls bandmates. When Howard Stern asked Mel
if she was attracted to the girls, she said, "Always! They're my homies! I
had gotten my tongue pierced and I wanted to try it out. So I kissed them
all!" She went on to discuss her relationship with her baby's daddy, Eddie
Murphy. She said, "[Eddie's] a great guy. I don't think I have much to
say about him because I don't think it's appropriate. At the end of the day, we
have a beautiful daughter together."

opened up about how his 2012 accident forced him to reevaluate his priorities.
Jason told The Huffington Post U.K., "I was hardcore drinking every
single night. I was partying until crazy times in the evening then getting on
the plane at 6 in the morning, walking in the airport like a zombie because I
was drunk and hungover from the last night." Back in January of 2012,
Jason fractured his neck while rehearsing for a series of shows. Actually, the
injury could have been way worse and he could have been paralyzed. Jason was forced
to cancel his "Future History" tour and wore a neck brace for seven
months. On how the accident made him reevaluate his priorities, Jason said,
"Before my accident I was on autopilot. I don't really think that was the
right road. I was not being smart. Being young and somebody who travels the
world, you can easily get caught up and kind of lose yourself in it all. I
think my injury really helped to wake me up a little bit." He continued,
"When I was writing my second album I was drinking every single night,
like hardcore. At one point I lost my voice and I couldn't record for a couple
of weeks because I was drinking just coffee and alcohol."
