Her husband Kendall Taylor took to the American Idol alum's Instagram with a photo of the singer — who is currently on tour with Charlie Wilson and Johnny Gill — resting in the hospital (above) with the caption:

"Speaking on behalf of my wife: "She walks as a powerful force in the earth. Impacting everything she touches and encounters. I love her determination and sheer will power to not accept defeat on any level. She complains little, but so sacrifices much! But there are times when our Father intentionally slows us down to reflect and hear from Him. My Wife experienced an accident today causing 2nd degree burns on her arm. She's steady asking the Doc "Can I perform tonight?" But we must be wise and realize this isn't a race, but rather a marathon. So Memphis, our team is already working to create a means that she can redeem this time with you. She had something truly special planned for tonight. So please, keep my Queen lifted in prayer, asking our God to heal her rapidly with no last negative affects. Rock Soul won't be denied, this is simply a delay that will prove to be necessary for what's to come. We love you all and thank you for your understanding and support! #WeaponsMayForm #NoneShallPropser"

And while we're not sure of the specifics of her accident, her rep told People:

"Fantasia suffered a minor accident yesterday afternoon and is resting comfortably. At this moment, our plan is to resume the tour in Los Angeles on Wednesday at the Microsoft Theater. She thanks all of her fans for their kind messages of love and support, and is looking forward to getting back out on the road."

Here's to a speedy recovery!!!

remy ma drops second nicki minaj diss track

Remy Ma is taking so many shots at Nicki Minaj!

As you surely know, the All The Way Up rapper SLAMMED Miz Minaj in her new diss track, Shether, after the former American Idol judge seemingly threw shade at Remy in some recent work.

While the A-lister clapped back at the 36-year-old's diss on Instagram, Remy and the rest of the world were shocked when the Anaconda artist didn't drop a track of her own.

In fact, the Terror Squad alum decided to call out Nicki for her delayed response as she released ANOTHER diss track titled, well, Another One. How very on the nose!

Remy even had Funk Flex debut the song on Hot 97 Thursday evening — you know, almost a week after Remy first savagely destroyed Minaj. And the industry vet is in no way taking it easy on the artist.

At one point, Remy compares Nicki to Ronda Rousey as she raps:

"I beat you with punches in 48, you Ronda Rousey."

Ouch. Be sure to listen to the Drake-inspired, shady song for yourself (below)!

Remember When American Idol Ended 3 Seconds Ago? It Might Come Back On NBC…

Does Ryan Seacrest need the work that badly?

We thought we'd seen the last of American Idol after FOX canceled the OG primetime singing competition last year.

But not even a year later, NBC is already talks to revive the hit series!

According to Variety, the peacock network has been pitched a new and improved version of the singing comp by producer Fremantle and is deciding how to integrate Idol to its programming — which already features two of the highest rated singing competitions on air.

Insiders say one benefit of rebooting Idol would be cutting The Voice from two cycles a year to just one — giving audiences a break from Adam Levine and Blake Shelton's banter, which would prolong the show's life in the long run.

Even though Idol's viewership declined in its later years, no one can deny the ratings powerhouse it was for well over a decade — not to mention, giving us actual stars like Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, and Jennifer Hudson.

NBC is keeping things hush for now, but we have a feeling we Idol will be making sweet music again sooner than later.

What a nightmare!

Let's journey back to the 2006 Grammys… it was a HUGE night for Kelly Clarkson as she became the first American Idol contestant to win not one, but TWO awards for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for Since U Been Gone and Best Pop Vocal Album for Breakaway.

The then-23-year-old also took the stage that night to perform her classic ballad Because Of You.

As if the tensions weren't high enough, this was all going on the very same day doctors mistakenly diagnosed the songstress with cancer.

Casper Smart knows how to worm his way back into Jennifer Lopez's life!

Earlier this week, J.Lo hit up a Cuban restaurant and nightclub, named El Floridita, for a friend's birthday party in Hollywood. However, the hitmaker's ex was also in attendance as he too was invited to the outing. Hmmm, go on!

As you may recall, Lopez called it quits (for the 1,000th time) on her romance with Smart back in August. Although, it sounds like there isn't any bad blood between the former flames since Jennifer, along with bestie Leah Remini, was seen happily chatting with the dancer.

One source even claimed the 47-year-old looked "happy" to be chatting with the Dirty Dancing star. Huh.

Clearly the run-in didn't ruin Jenny's night as she took to Instagram and shared:
