American Idol really, really wants J.Lo to return "Jennifer Lopez isn't sure if she'll come back for a third season of "American Idol," but the big cheese on the show says he wants her back in the worst way. "A.I." EP Nigel Lythgoe tells TMZ, "We want her back. I want her back." Nigel is reacting to Lopez' comment on "Ellen," saying, "I don't know if I can go for a third year. I miss doing other things. It really does lock you down." Nigel says, "I know how much she loves doing the show and how much she cares for the kids." That said, Nigel adds, "It's a business. She has to weigh everything. I know she's gotten lots of offers to do movies and other things." Ever the optimist, Nigel says by saying she "doesn't know" if she'll come back, it's classic negotiations, which means the door is open. Welcome to Hollywood." I HAVEN'T WATCHED THE SHOW SINCE THE JUDGES STOPPED BEING, YOU KNOW, JUDGEY, BUT I GUESS PEOPLE REALLY LIKE THAT FAUX-CARING BULL-BLEEP AND J.LO REALLY, REALLY LIKES MONEY, SO SHE'LL PROBABLY BE BACK.

God of your choice help us "Celebuzz has been with the entire cast of Snow White and the Huntsman for the past few days in London, England, for the big world premiere! During our sit down with star Kristen Stewart, who plays Snow White, we started talking about another phenomenon… Fifty Shades of Grey. The sexy novel — that has been acquired by Universal Studios in a movie deal — was based off of her and boyfriend Robert Pattinson‘s characters Edward Cullen and Bella Swan from the Twilight novels. Knowing this, could Kristen ever see her and Rob starring in Fifty Shades? Kristen told us about her hopes to work with Rob again: “I haven’t read the book yet– so I don’t know,” she said when asked if she could picture herself and Rob playing these roles. ... “I’m dying to make another movie with Rob, I think that we’re a good team,” Kristen added. “I think whatever it is needs to be so ridiculously ambitious. So maybe! I just haven’t read it, so I don’t know what it is, but I would love to work with him again.”
Let's speak ill-ish of the dead Us: "Before Adele became a multiplatinum powerhouse, there was another British crooner who ruled the airwaves: soul singer Amy Winehouse, who passed away in her London home on July 23, 2011. With smoky-voiced Adele entertaining audiences worldwide, Grammy winner Winehouse, 27, was eager to record a follow-up to her 2006 smash Back to Black. "We spent a little time together and talked about it," Winehouse's friend and longtime collaborator Mark Ronson, 36, told The Village Voice May 9. "But, what little time we had, well, it was tense. She was in a bad state, God knows why." "I think that the Adele thing had Amy freaked out. She liked her, but Adele's success was making Amy feel upset, competitive, restless," Ronson continued. "Anyway, we lost touch briefly. And before she and I could really start the process of beginning a new album, it was too late."
