Puerto Rican popstar Jennifer Lopez is getting back to her roots. At the advice of her Latin Lover husband Marc Anthony, Lopez has recorded a new album of Spanish love songs. She has also dropped her “J. Lo” moniker.
"I'm not J.Lo any more. That's all gone with all the ridiculous stories about tantrums and Egyptian sheets. That's all my past,” she told the Guardian newspaper in Great Britain. "I'm Jennifer Lopez. I think, as a woman, I've finally grown surer of who I am. It does seem ironic that it has taken me more than a decade to basically get back to who I am."
The always charitable rock-star Bono became a knight of the British empire Thursday. Showing his humility and sense of humor, Bono graciously accepted, but would prefer that he not be called Sir Bono.
"You have permission to call me anything you want... except sir, all right? Lord of lords, your demigodness, that'll do," the 46-year-old U2 frontman told reporters "after he was crowned a Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire in a jokey, informal ceremony in the Dublin home of British Ambassador David Reddaway," according to the Post Star.
It seems that Chris Sligh won’t be “bringing chubby back.” The 28-year-old American Idol contestant has been eliminated. Sligh joined Haley Scarnato and Phil Stacey as the bottom three contestants after Wednesday’s results were read.
Sligh performed the Police’s “Every little thing she does is magic,” as what would turn out to be his swan song. Unfortunately for him, the judges weren’t very impressed, and America actually agreed with the judges.

When the police showed up, they found him to be a bit tipsy. Then they searched his car and found that he had less than an ounce of marijuana and a prescribed medication without a prescription.
Hilary Duff knows how to create a stir without even trying. The singer-actress recently released a new album "Dignity," which drew speculation that she used the cd as a platform to attack Nicole Richie, who is dating her ex boyfriend Joel Madden.

Michael Jackson has considered regularly performing in Las Vegas. And if the ‘King of Pop’ does put in a regular appearance, it seems he would need the help of a fifty foot neon robot created in his own likeness.
According to designers interviewed by the New York Daily News, the massive neon Jackson would be in view of incoming flights and would shoot laser beams into the desert night.
Justin Timberlake is a nice guy. That’s pretty plain to see by his lack of bad press and the boyband image he just can’t seem to shake. And nice guys are hard to find. So when Britney Spears started falling apart, it wasn’t surprising that Justin was there for her.
Now Justin is in talks to record a single with Spears. Timberlake is confident that the record can help rebuild her faltering pop career and get her back to the top of the charts.
Things haven’t been easy for Joss Stone as of late. First, she is the butt of many jokes regarding her Brit Awards appearance/speech. Then Dallas Austin accuses her of sleeping with producers to get her tracks. Now her crush doesn’t even know who she is. Poor Joss!
Reports of excessive demands and a supposedly jealous boss have led to rumors that Jay-Z may be fired as CEO of Def Jam records.
The superstar rapper/businessman has worked two years for L.A. Reid, chairman of Island/Def Jam, and Jay-Z’s contract is up for renewal.
