Everybody’s rocking them and that’s exactly the problem, at least at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.  Not because they’re headphones by a rapper or anything like that, rather money and sponsorship is the issue.  Another big issue, at least for the Olympic organizers and big money sponsors is the fact that several high profile athletes have been all over TV with them on.  It’s kinda complicated, but I will explain below.  Press play and listen to Tha Wire for more info.

Mariah Carey and Randy Jackson-getty images

In other news, as previously reported Mariah Carey has signed on to be a judge on American Idol.  As Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez exit, Randy Jackson will also be leaving his post.  That leaves Mariah as the sole judge for now, however two other high profile celebs are being rumored to possibly fill those spots.  Get the juicy details now.

Finally, Dr. Conrad Murray is trying to get his sentence appealed.  His legal team just filed a motion Monday and wants a bottle of propofol found in Michaels room re-tested.  If things work in his favor, he might be getting out of jail.

Get the scoop, skinny, mess and drama now with Tha Wire.  Press play now:
