After weeks of speculation the news is finally in!
Fox's American Idol judge, Steven Tyler, has made the official announcement that he will not be returning for the new season. Quickly after Jennifer Lopez released a "maybe I will, maybe I won't return" statement, audiences are wondering if the songstress will be following in Tyler's footsteps and departing from from the glorified singing competition.
But do not fret Joonbuggers, such is life. Out with the old and in with the new!
What sets the American Idol panel apart from other singing competitions is its consistency in choosing musically relative judges year after year. That being said we would not want to tamper with the formula of success. We have a few suggestions for AI's producer Nigel Lythogoe on who we would want to see in the judge's chair come next season.
EMM Group owners Mark Burnbaum and Eugene Remm are now tackling reality television. The New York nightlife moguls don’t seem to mind putting more on their plate in addition to their various and successful enterprises such as Abe & Arthur’s, Catch NYC, Lexington Brass, SL, Tenjune and The Chandelier Room.

In most recent news of fashion hate crimes; Kim Kardashian got ‘flour bombed’ last Thursday at a red carpet event. Kim and ‘momager’ Kris were appearing at the launch party for Kim’s new fragrance, True Reflection, held at the London Hotel in West Hollywood. In the midst of interviews and posing for the press, a young female fan dumped an entire bag of flour on the reality star, allegedly yelling, “fur hag” at her. While trying to flee the scene of the crime, the currently anonymous woman was stopped by Kardashian’s rep and escorted out by security. Kim got cleaned up and returned in good spirits to a cheering crowd saying, “I told my make up artist I needed a little bit more powder–but not that much! Luckily she didn’t get me too bad.”
For anyone who thought the Royal Wedding back in June was the most buzzed-about wedding in 2011, think again. The Kardashians, who have come as close to a national obsession as any family can be, might take the cake from Will & Kate.
On Saturday, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries said 'I do' in a lavish ten-million-dollar wedding spectacular.
So where to start?
The 500 person guest list for the affair which took place at the posh Sotto Il Monte estate in Montecito, California included a lot of famous names such as Ryan Seacrest, Lindsay Lohan, Eva Longoria, and New York Knicks star Carmello Anthony and wife, La La, according to People magazine.
Demi Lovato is back and better than ever.
Despite having a rocky year, the singer/actress was all smiles in a KIIS-FM (Los Angeles) chat with Ryan Seacrest. Even the famous host noticed her big grin, to which Demi responded "I try to create positive energy everywhere I go." She looked confident and ready to talk about her tumultuous few months.
The interview of the former Sonny with a Chance star consisted of a full-on coverage on her past demons and her struggles to overcome them. It's no secret that Demi had checked herself into a rehabilitation center back in November - citing at the time to be "for emotional and physical issues" - which, a couple of months ago, have been revealed to be due to issues of bulimia/anorexia, self-mutilation, depression and a surprising diagnosis of bipolar disorder.
Clear Channel may be giving the good people over at Pandora a run for their money. The San Antonio, Texas based media conglomerate reaches more than 154 million people and operates nearly 1,000 radio stations, reaching more than 110 million listeners every week.

Those participating have filmed videos speaking out about their last tweets and testament. The campaign also will showcase them in coffins to represent a digital death.
For those who are anxious at the thought of not knowing what a favorite a-lister will be up to, just relax and step away from creep mode.
Raise the money and Buy Life now.
Whether they wanted to or not, Julianne Hough (Dancing with the Stars, singer, ProActiv advocate) and Ryan Seacrest (obnoxious host of everything on T.V.) have confirmed they're dating.
There has been speculation about their relationship lately, as they've been seen together almost everywhere and rumors have been flying. But like true celebrities, they never confirmed nor denied anything.
Well now, pictures of them in Portofino, Italy have surfaced and they've done all the talking.
Because 13 surgeries just weren't enough, reports that Heidi Montag has already scheduled her next breast enlargement have hit.
Spencer Pratt seems to imply that though unintentional, Ryan Seacrest is somewhat to blame for the decision, but we all know it's just the addiction of a plastic surgery junkie. Heidi wants the work done within the next two months and is considering having the procedure done in Europe.
"I try to stop her," Spencer tells Life & Style. "She wants her doctor to come over once a week to plump up her lips. I keep telling her that they're big enough and that she doesn't need it."
Not content with reigning supreme in the world of modeling, designing her own range for Topshop, and even branching out into a brief singing career (her vocals appeared on one of the tracks for British band Babyshambles when she dated the lead singer Pete Doherty), Kate Moss is keen to add yet another building brick to the Moss empire.
Rumors are rife that Moss is set to be involved in Simon Cowell’s entertainment venture with Topshop owner Sir Philip Green, and who better to help when you’re looking to combine the worlds of fashion and entertainment? Apparently Moss has been signed up for Cowell’s new battle-of-the-bands-style TV show, where unsigned groups compete for a chance at fame. The word is we may see Kate either on the judging panel or as a host in the series that will launch in the US with plans of a British spin-off later. We’d tune in if only to see Kate’s outfit each week- move over Ryan Seacrest!
