Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan met during their freshmen year at Berklee College of Music. They were featured in the same concert, her playing strings and him jazz trombone. They started dating in the sophomore year and formed duo Karmin which is a combination of the word “Carmen” aka “Song” in Latin and “Karma”.
Despite starting off in classical route, Amy has always loved rap. “We started hearing Nicki Minaj and more rap on pop radio,” she said in an interview. “I’ve always loved rap, but I grew up in a Christian household and wasn’t allowed to listen to stuff with a parental advisory sticker on it. So I knew I could rap in the shower, but I was so terrified about posting it online.”
Karmin covered such songs as Minaj’s “Super Bass” and Chris Brown’s “Look at Me Now” and uploaded them online, propelling their online cult popularity status. An EP titled “Inside Out” was released in 2010. Up to their second album, “The Winslow Session”, Karmin were still an indie act. But their name caught the attention of L.A. Reid who then signed them under Epic. Karmin – Brokenhearted now playing on Tablet TV

Kanye West Cancels “Today Show” Performance. Kanye West has been on Twitter quite a bit lately. First, to denounce Matt Lauer and NBC’s “The Today Show” after a recent appearance. Now, he announced that he’s canceling his “Today Show” performance originally scheduled for later this month. West was slated to take the stage on Friday, November 26th to perform tracks from his upcoming new album, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.” He’s still scheduled to perform the day before during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. But after his much-discussed “Today Show” appearance, where West expressed his frustration with the show for playing audio of his infamous Taylor Swift speech interruption during his interview, he pulled the plug on what was to be a “live concert on the plaza.” “I’m not performing on the Today Show for obvious reasons,” Kanye tweeted. “I’m so happy the world got to see just a small piece of ‘the set up.’…I blatantly said I’m not performing on a tweet and to everyone around me and the next day they still announced a performance. “Do you guys see what I’m saying now?” he continued. Sounds like “Paranoid” isn’t just a song off “808s & Heartbreaks.” But Kanye insists he isn’t angry at Lauer or the show. “I don’t hate Matt Lauer,” he added. “We don’t promote hate. That’s the whole point!!! I promote love and truth!”…All positive energy… all smiles.”

MTV Cancels Reality Show “The City”. It looks like Whitney Port is out of a job. The former “The Hills” reality star who made waves with her spin-off in “The City,” has been canceled by MTV. A spokesperson for the Music channel says: “’The City’ will not be returning to MTV for season three.” “Whitney has been a part of our family for many years and we wish her and the cast the best, and hope to collaborate with them again.” The announcement doesn’t come as a surprise for Port, as she herself hinted that the show would end during an interview with Ryan Seacrest on his radio show. “As of right now it doesn’t really look like we’re doing it anymore,” she said. “The City” followed Port as she moved from the west coast to New York City in pursuit of a fashion career while in the big city. This doesn’t look like it’s the end of Port’s career in the fashion world, though. She told Seacrest, “It’s OK – one door closes and another opens,” adding that she has several new projects lined up for the future as well

Sally Field Opens Up About Her Life As An Empty Nester On “The Nate Berkus Show” Academy Award-winning actress Sally Field has opened up to interior designer Nate Berkus about her life as an empty nester. The “Brothers and Sisters” star also talked about why Jamie Lee Curtis won’t be able to help her with organizing her home. On Monday’s episode of “The Nate Berkus Show,” Field, 63, said that her home design style is very much like “Sybil at work,” referring to her Emmy Award-winning role in the 1976 made-for-television miniseries “Sybil.” She also opened up about her new role as an empty-nester after her kids left the house. She told Berkus, “Empty nesters, what happens is the kids go and you are the receptacle [of all the crap].” “‘Mother you didn’t throw my sports equipment away did you?’ I don’t want your sports equipment. I haven’t wanted it for years and years and years! I just don’t want it.” When Berkus suggested that she needs Jamie Lee Curtis to come over to her house because the other actress is a “terror with organization,” Field replied, “Well she doesn’t care about any of my stuff!” “Jamie Lee is down to wearing like one color, isn’t she? And she has one hair-do for the rest of her life. And I love her for it! I admire her for it! Every day I look at myself and say, I’ve got to change.” Field’s interview with Berkus will air on Monday’s episode.
Patti Stanger Wants To Set Up Betty White On “Millionaire Matchmaker”. Patti Stanger is back with a new season of her show, “The Millionaire Matchmaker.” Set in New York City, she’s been busy working with NYC millionaires, but she’d love to work with other single celebrities, especially Betty White. Responding to White’s recent request for a man, Stanger told our source who she’d set the “Golden Girls” actress up with. “Twilight” actor Robert Pattinson, who reportedly called White “one of the sexiest women alive,” was her first choice. Stanger also suggested 84-year-old actor and comedian Mel Brooks, telling our source, “Betty and Mel would laugh all the way to heaven!” She added Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner — if he dated anyone his own age — and former “The Price is Right” host Bob Barker would be good matches for White. “(Barker and White) are both animal lovers, huge animal lovers. They would bond over that.” “The Millionaire Matchmaker” premieres on Bravo today, and the cast moved from sunny California to the fast-paced Big Apple. Back in March, the New York Daily News reported that Stanger hired Vinnie Potestivo Entertainment to cast her show’s fourth season, and a source close to the company said that a plethora of “society types, hedge-fund guys and even a couple of hot-spot club owners” have applied to get in on the action. Watch the show’s premiere today to see what the upcoming season of “Matchmaker” holds.
