VIDEO: Steven Tyler makes fun of Jennifer Lopez’ Oscar wardrobe malfunction


There’s still a debate about the status of Jennifer Lopez’ apparent wardrobe malfunction at the Oscars on Sunday night.

Some believe more of Lopez’ left breast was exposed than should have been, as she squeezed into a form-fitting dress for her on stage presenter duties.

Decide for yourself by watching the video here.

In the meantime, fellow American Idol judge Steven Tyler had some fun with the whole thing on Tuesday’s Idol show, the first live broadcast of the season.

When host Ryan Seacrest stopped by the judges table to chat, Tyler said, “I’m as confused as a baby in a topless bar,” before pulling back his shirt to expose his chest and asking, “Wait, wait… Who am I?”

“I don’t even know what to say to that. Ryan, save me right now!” Jennifer replied.

Seacrest clarified things for the viewing audience, “That was an Oscar re-enactment, ladies and gentlemen.”

Lady Gaga launches Born This Way Foundation


MTV reports Lady Gaga and her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, took over Harvard University to launch their Born This Way Foundation on Wednesday.

In front of a crowd that included Oprah Winfrey, the New York natives kicked off their inspirational foundation, hoping to empower the youth of America.

"I'm not here today to give you an answer,” Gaga told the crowd. “And I'm not here to tell you I can solve these problems [of bullying]. This is about transformative change in culture over a period of time. One of the most important things I wanted to share with all of you today, it's no secret I speak out against bullying. This is not an anti-bullying foundation; this is a youth-empowerment foundation," she continued. "This is about changing the climate of the school environment and not putting the power in the hands of the teachers or the government. It is about the bubble effect. I don't believe they have the answers; I believe that you do."

Gaga also revealed another aspect of the foundation: "There is a bus now called the Born Brave Bus. So the Born Brave Bus is essentially a bus that is going to travel and follow my tour bus around the country, and it will welcome anyone from any walk of life to come and hang out and talk about love, acceptance, kindness and so forth. And the best thing about it it's going to be fun. It's going to essentially be a tailgate. This is not about saying, 'I need help,' but if you do, you can come. If you want to help someone else, you can come and say 'Hey, what's up?' "

Adele scores longest-running US #1 since Purple Rain


Adele continues her reign atop the Billboard 200.

Billboard reports the UK singer’s “21” album spends a 22nd week at #1 on the chart, making it the longest-running #1 since Prince & the Revolution's "Purple Rain" soundtrack scored 24 weeks on top in 1984 and 1985.

Adele sold another 297,000 copies (down 59% from the previous week), according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The new chart also represents "21's" ninth consecutive week at #1 - the most in-a-row since the "Titanic" soundtrack’s 14 weeks in 1998.

"21," released just over a year ago in the U.S., has now sold 7.65 million in the U.S. – including 1.83 million in 2012.

Adele has a second album in the top 10 this week, as her first set, "19," descends 4-7 with 39,000 (down 56%).

The late Whitney Houston's "Whitney: the Greatest Hits" holds at No. 2 with 174,000 (down less than 1%).

Whitney Houston’s death may be ruled accidental


Although Whitney Houston’s death remains under investigation, it is expected to be officially ruled an accident, sources tell E! News.

While the actual cause of death was temporarily listed as "deferred" on Houston's death certificate, pending the result of toxicology tests, "nothing suspicious" has been found to connect any physicians or other people of interest to Houston's case and the inquiry is nearing completion, the source says.

Plus, "she had no marks on her body whatsoever to indicate a struggle, and she was the furthest thing from trying to kill herself."

The L.A. County Department of Coroner will not comment, citing the ongoing investigation.

The E! News source says that the autopsy toxicology screen could be in the Beverly Hills Police Department's hands by next week and, depending on the status of other elements of their investigation, the case could be closed very soon afterward.

Sources have told E! News that Houston had prescriptions for antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications, and a handful of pill bottles were reportedly found in her room at the Beverly Hilton, where she was found dead in the bathtub.

Stay tuned.

Cee Lo Green writing his memoirs


Cee Lo Green is writing his autobiography.

Billboard reports Grand Central Books announced it had signed the multi-platinum star to write a book about his life to be published in 2013.

In a statement Green said, "FORGET YOU? After reading my book, there will be no doubt that I am meant to be. You will enter into the supernatural, the surreal, and extraordinary. As Cee Lo Green, a.k.a. 'everybody's brother,' I will make you a believer. I talk about art imitating life; YOU discover CRAZY."

David Wild, the Rolling Stone contributing editor and television writer, will co-author the book. Singing partner Big Gipp will also contribute "insights" about Green.

"He dresses in sequined capes, performs with the Muppets and Madonna, and does 360° flips with a grand piano at his fingertips. Imagine all that outrageously unique and creative talent channeled into a book," raved Beth de Guzman, Vice-President and Editor-in-Chief of Paperbacks at Grand Central Publishing who acquired the book.

Green is currently in his second season on the NBC's "The Voice." As a musician, he is part of Gnarls Barkley and the Goodie Mob. He has won five Grammy awards, including for Best Traditional R&B Performance and Best R&B Song in 2012.

Cee Lo recently joined Madonna for her Super Bowl Halftime show.

Rihanna to play Whitney Houston in film?


It’s barely been two weeks since Whitney Houston’s death and there’s already talk about turning her life into a movie.

And, according to The Daily Mail, Rihanna is rumored to be among the shortlist of talent who are being considered to play the pop diva on the big screen.

Whitney's record label boss and close friend Clive Davis is at the helm of the project and he reportedly wants to get a script finalized as soon as possible so filming can begin.

Rihanna is in the running for the lead role, as is Jennifer Hudson, actress Vivica Fox, and American Idol singer Jordin Sparks; also being considered for the movie is Will Smith's 11-year-old daughter Willow, who is thought to be portraying the actress as a child.

The superstar's life story had been discussed before her death and Houston was reportedly excited about the project.

Madonna has released the second single from her forthcoming new album, “MDNA.”

“Girl Gone Wild” is another dance floor rave up; it was written by Vancouver native Jenson Vaughan.

Billboard reports the track was helmed by dance music superstar Benny Benassi and his production partner/cousin, Ale Benassi.

Avril Lavigne in talks to become X Factor judge


Speculation continues to grow about who will fill the empty "X-Factor" judges' seats.

CBS says the latest report suggests that Avril Lavigne is in talks to move into one of the open slots, according to TMZ.

Insiders said Lavinge's rep contacted "X-Factor" producers about the gig and now both sides are mulling it over, according to the website.

The Canadian pop star joins a growing list of reported potential judges, including Britney Spears, Fergie and Janet Jackson...but nothing has been confirmed to date.

They would fill the spots abandoned by Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger, who parted ways from the show earlier this year.

Lavigne has an “in” with judge L.A. Reid – she was one of his protégés, and that could influence Avril’s ability to get the gig.

Stay tuned!

The web is buzzing with reaction to a possible “wardrobe malfunction” by Jennifer Lopez at Sunday night’s Academy Awards.

Lopez was on hand to present Best Costume Design and Best Makeup alongside Cameron Diaz.

The plunging neckline on J-Lo’s dress may have caught viewers’ attention, and it’s being hotly debated whether or not there was a little more showing than should be.

During the pair’s introductions to the categories, viewers may have noticed a slight “nipple slip” as Jennifer’s dress shifted slightly during the presentation.

Adele tops UK album charts following Brit Awards


Following a successful night at last week’s Brit Awards, where she snagged Best British Album and Best British Female honors, Adele returns to the top of the UK charts.

The Official Charts Company reports Adele’s “21” hits #1 for its 21st non-consecutive week at the peak.

The album climbs two places while enjoying a week on week sales boost of 37%.

“21” has now been on the UK charts for 57 weeks, having never left the Top 10 since its release.

Adele has now broken 6 million album sales in the UK, with “21” hitting 4 million sales in the same week that her debut album clears the 2 million milestone.

The OCC adds some interesting Adele trivia: since her Brit Awards performance, someone has bought one of her albums (either her 2008 debut album, “19,” or her 2011 record-breaking follow-up, “21”) on average, every seven seconds.

Rihanna & Chris Brown to reunite on American Idol?


Could we be seeing a Rihanna/Chris Brown duet on American Idol?

E! News reports Idol producers are in talks with the controversial pair about possibly performing together on the show this season, according to a source close to the situation.

"They want Chris and Rihanna to reunite on the show," the insider says.

If they were to duet on Idol, it would be their first public appearance together (on purpose, at the same time), let alone their first live collaboration, since early 2009, when Brown was arrested for assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna.

The pair have just reunited on record: each appears as a guest on the other’s current singles – Rihanna’s “Birthday Cake” remix and Brown’s “Turn Up The Music.”

Great debate amongst media and fans ensued after Brown returned to the music awards event, three years after he assaulted then-girlfriend Rihanna on the eve of the industry affair.

Next, he is reunited on record with Rihanna, encouraging more headlines and debate.

Now, Brown is accused of stealing a fan’s phone.

Billboard reports Brown is under investigation for allegedly swiping a female fan's phone out of her hands and driving away after leaving a nightclub in South Florida on Sunday (Feb. 19), Miami Beach police told NBC 6 Miami.

"B--ch you ain't going to put that on no website," Brown reportedly told 24-year-old Miami resident Christal Spann after she approached and took a photo of Brown and rapper Tyga as they were getting into a black Bentley outside club Cameo. Spann told police that Brown opened his window, took her $500 white iPhone 4S and drove away.

Police responded around 4:40 a.m. but Brown is believed to have left the Miami area already. It is unclear if Brown, who performed at the American Airlines Arena on Feb. 16, is still in possession of the phone. The state attorney's office is reportedly preparing an arrest warrant and police have listed the offense as "robbery by sudden snatching."

Tyga has not been implicated. Brown has not commented on the accusations.

The "Turn Up the Music" singer is currently serving five years of probation after pleading guilty to the brutal assault of his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. Earlier this month a judge in Los Angeles praised Brown for his good behavior, but decided he should continue reporting to a probation officer in Virginia.

Jennifer Lopez not planning duet with Steven Tyler


The battle between reality singing contests continues this spring with The Voice and American Idol currently up and running, while other shows are set to return later this spring.

Following the success of The Voice mentors Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera teaming up for their collaboration of Maroon 5’s "Moves Like Jagger," MTV reports music fans shouldn’t expect Idol judges Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler to follow in their footsteps.

"None of us are kind of followers in that way," Lopez told MTV News. "We kind of do what feels right, and anybody that's been in the business a long time knows that you don't chase."

"You set the trail. You go out front, and anything that we do is something that feels good to us," she said, leaving the door open just a crack. "If that happened, it would happen. If a performance happened, it would happen. But it would have to feel real. ... Last year, we talked about performing together on the show for the finale, and we just couldn't agree on the same thing that felt good for all of us, so we just didn't do it.”

Chris Brown collaboration was Rihanna’s idea


The Chris Brown collaboration with Rihanna on the remix of her single, “Birthday Cake,” was Rihanna’s idea, according to its songwriter.

The-Dream remembers first getting the call from Rihanna while driving in Miami. "I think I'm gonna put Chris on it," MTV reports the songwriter remembers Rihanna saying to him over the phone nonchalantly. "I don't know which Chris you talkin' about, [but] OK, cool, whatever you say," The Dream remembers responding.

Of course there is really only one Chris, and The-Dream came to grips with the reality that the two would be coming together in song after the damaging 2009 assault that left Rihanna battered and bruised and Brown public enemy #1.

"She's pretty smart too. The same questions that went through my mind, and I'm an artist also, had to have gone through hers," The-Dream told "RapFix Live." "When she raised the question to me, I know she's not crazy. So my thought was you've been thinking about this, you've already thought it out, so evidently you know what reaction you gonna get."

The singer/songwriter said that he was just happy that she gave him enough forewarning that he too could prepare for any type of backlash. Still, despite the rumblings of whether or not Rihanna is sending the right message collaborating with Chris on "Birthday Cake" as well as Brown's "Turn Up the Music" remix, The-Dream says that it all boils down to forgiveness. "Don't say you know how to forgive when you don't," he warned. "Everybody knows what took place, cool. Have the power to really forgive if that's what it is, if not stay on that side of the fence from the beginning."

"At the end of the day, she's my friend, so whatever she wants to do is whatever she wants to do," The-Dream added.
