Fox announced Monday night that Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio will be joining Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato on the judges’ panel when The X Factor returns this fall.
“It’s taken more than a decade, but I’m delighted to finally be on a panel with three girls (I think!), Simon declared in a statement. "Paulina and Kelly both have great taste and massive experience in the music industry and together with Demi, this is going to be a fun panel. It just feels like the time to do something different,” Simon added.
Rowland and Rubio fill the vacancies left by the departures of Britney Spears and L.A. Reid.
Rowland served as a judge on the British version of The X Factor in 2011. "I am very exciting to be reuniting with Simon Cowell and The X Factor family, said Rowland in a statement. "It feels great to be able to take this journey here at home in the states."
Rubio, who has sold more than 20 million records and released 10 studio albums, said in a statement, "I love The X Factor. I can't wait to find the next big music star here in America. Simon. be careful what you wish for. Let's see if you are ready to handle me, empieza la fiesta, amigo."
A lady was giving an interview talking about how she lost her dog and she knows he's somewhere in that pile of wreckage. Just watch and see what happens next..
After E! News on Friday reported that B and Jay are expecting their second child, she posted a note onto Instagram that scoffed at the speculation -- though she didn't quite deny it, either.
In the quickly-pulled note, a screenshot of which appears on the website of Britain's Daily Mail newspaper, Beyoncé wrote, "I can't stop the rumors from starting, and I can't really change peoples [sic] minds who believe them, all I can do is sit back and laugh at these low life people who have nothing better to do than talk about me."
Beyoncé performed in Milan, Italy, over the weekend, after postponing a recent Belgium date due to "dehydration and exhaustion."
Three years ago, Bruno Mars became a worldwide superstar with a string of smash hits. But before that, he struggled for years to make it, and reveals that one of the barriers to his becoming a pop star was his race.
Bruno is Puerto Rican, Jewish and Filipino. In the cover story of the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, he says that when he and his songwriting partners came up with a song called "Nothin' on You," Bruno figured it was his ticket to the big time. But when he brought it to a music industry decision-maker -- a guy he won't name -- the reaction shocked him.
"He goes, 'Oh man, oh man, what a song,'" recalls Bruno. But then, he says the guy told him, "You know what kind of white artist we could break with this? Blond hair, blue eyes, we could make this kid the next thing!"
"It was just kinda sad," Bruno tells EW. "It was like, 'Man, what about the kid that played you the song and wrote it and produced it...what about that guy?'"
That experience, Bruno said, made him feel like a "mutant," and he says that was his lowest point. "Even with that song in my back pocket to seal the deal, things like that are coming out of people's mouths. It made me feel like I wasn't even in the room."
"Nothin' on You" went on to become a #1 hit for Bruno and B.o.B. It was nominated for three Grammys, and it launched Bruno on what's became one of the hottest pop careers of the decade.
So they met up backstage and gave each other a nice kiss on the cheek. The best part....Taylor Swift's reaction! LOL!

This weekend, Kanye is slated to be the musical guest on SNL, and he recalls somebody asking him, "...'you’re going to do like a skit about the paparazzi and s**t and like humanize yourself?'" To which, Kanye says, "I ain’t here to apologize to no motherf**kers, man. It ain’t about me humanizing myself. At what point did I become unhuman where I had to turn myself back?"
Kanye says he does music -- not comedy. "I ain’t doing no motherf**king SNL skits; this my goddamn life. This ain’t no motherf*king joke," he says. Despite his fame, Kanye wants people to know, "I ain’t no motherf**king celebrity," and even if you think that he is, he says he's the "worst" kind.
