With Simon Cowell on the hunt for some fresh new judges for the X Factor panel... his search has taken him a little further from the music realm.
A source has revealed that the Fox talent show creator, 53, is hoping that Jennifer Love Hewitt will join he and Demi Lovato on the panel for Season Three this fall.
Judges Britney Spears & L.A. Reid both left the show after last season.
"Simon is very interested," the source says of the 34-year old Client List actress & former (failed) popstar (her song "BareNaked" barely charted back in 2002).
Iconic country superstar Reba McEntire & former Destiny's Child powerhouse Kelly Rowland, who judged 2011's UK X-Factor are also being considered.
While reps at X Factor deny the rumours as "pure speculation," a friend close to Rowland is confident, "Kelly's nearly a done deal!"
Meanwhile, it was finally made public this ...
Justin Bieber has a bit more controversy on his hands after an officer smelled something funny coming from his tour bus, which was parked in front of the Grand Hotel in Stockholm, a rep for Stockholm PD reveals.
When the bus left for his concert at Globe Arena, the officer contacted a special narcotics unit, who then issued a warrant to search Bieber's rolling smoke-mobile.
As cops searched the bus in the parking garage of the Arena, we're told no one was on the bus when they found a small amount of narcotics (they aren't specifying which kind, but local papers speculate it's marijuana) -- along with a taser.... you know.. for the more unruly Belielbers..
Authorities have yet to identify a suspect, and Cops say no one will be charged as the drugs were found on the floor of the bus, and have no idea who brought it ...
FINALLY, we're seeing some new Beyonce music!
After a ton of teasing (Pepsi Commercials, leaked songs, Superbowl) the singer finally performed it live in Paris Wednesday night.
The road to releaseing this song had some interesting twists. Billboard first reported Bey would drop "Grown Woman" weeks ago, and rumours that the Mrs. Carter is unhappy with her choices for a single has put yet another wrench in the wheel of her as-of-yet to be released album.
It makes sense given that it's pretty strange she's kicked off her world tour with no album or new music to promote...
Have a look at the fan-captured video of "Grown Woman" and tell us if you think it was worth the wait!
By the way Jaden Smith is talking about "one of his best friends" it certainly seems like there's something more going on between the two teen stars.
The young rapper son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, seems quite enamoured with the half-sister of Kim, Khloe & Kourtney Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, after what he told Britain's Wonderland Magazine.
"I was in L.A., we were all hanging out," Smith, 14, explains, "Then I went to New York and she came too, and then she came here [to London] and surprised me, so that's pretty baller."
He adds: "She's one of my best friends. It's pretty awesome."
Last month, the Karate Kid star's pic was snapped with Jenner, 15, after a lunch date at a Cafe in London, where he was performing as one of Justin Bieber's opening acts.

If all your dreams came true when you found out that "Friends" would FINALLY return to NBC with a new season.... Jennifer Anniston is sadly popping our bubble.
While appearing on the Ellen DeGeneres show today, the former Rachel Green discussed the rumours of a reunion... swiftly quashing any legitimacy it may have had.
NBC has also confirmed that a Friends reunion is not in the works.
The buzz began a few months back after rumours of a Thanksgiving 2014 reunion special started to spread across the social mediasphere, but really took off last week, when a major Latin American media outlet reported that NBC had confirmed a new, full-season.
However the confirmation that a Friends reunion isn't being planned, came literally a day after the show co-creator Marta Kauffman said “I’m going to clear this up — it’s not happening."
Continuing to say, “Friends ...
A couple of Glee's hottest stars are losing their clothes left right and center for some new magazine spreads.
Naya Rivera is baring all in a totally nute photoshoot for Allure's annual "Naked Truth" issue, where she says she feels like a "badass" now that Glee has made her a sex symbol in the Lesbian community.
"I get more girls than my boyfriend. They always tweet me about my booty," Rivera explains.
She also opens up about her past as a Hooters waitress, and when asked how she got over her self-consciousness, she said, "You can't be so hard on yourself that you're not enjoying every day."
One of Glee's new girls, Becca Tobin, who joined the cast this season as bitchy cheerleader Kitty, is shedding some layers in the new issue of Maxim.
The 27-year-old looks amazing, but says one of her new cravings might become an ...
For a show called "Glee" it was definitely the opposite of that last night, as it explored some pretty heavily emotional material: School Shootings.
Just like the shows that've addressed the issue before, "One Tree Hill," "Degrassi" and "American Horror Story", it's rattled the cage of controversy for how it was handled.
Without giving too much away, the Glee kids found themselves hiding as gunshots rang out through McKinley High, as audiences watched the uncomfortably familiar scene, which obviously drew parallels to Sandy Hook Elementary School.
For some, it was too much, and on the Newtown Action Alliance Facebook page, loved ones and supporters of the Sandy Hook victims had their say on how Glee handled the subject matter.
"Those of us with kids that survived the shooting do not need to watch this episode. It's too soon as our kids and our own wounds ...
The White House is denying that President Obama had anything to do with the approval of Jay Z and Beyonce's recent (controversial) trip to Cuba.
In a press conference, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney responds to questions about the song "Open Letter" Hov released this week in response to the drama which contained lyrics like, "Obama said chill, 'You gonna get me impeached.' We don't need this s*** anyway. Chill with me on the beach."
"I guess nothing rhymes with treasury, because treasury offers and gives licenses for travel, as you know, and The White House has nothing to do with it." He retorted, continuing that "The white house, from the President on down had nothing do with anybody's travel to Cuba, that is something that treasury handles. It's a song...the President did not communicate with Jay-Z over this trip."
It doesn't seem like any flights out of JFK were cancelled due to weather, so it looks like Kris Humphries may need something other than mother nature to blame for missing his MANDATORY settlement conference with Kim Kardashian today.
Sources connected with Kris reveal he was in NYC at 1AM today, looking "extremely upset."
Even if he had been able to catch the first flight out of JFK this morning, at 6AM ET, he would've arrived at 9:15AM PT.... only problem is the hearing began at 8:30am.
The judge will not be pleased.... but Kim might be!
Glee star Cory Monteith's decision to enter rehab for substance abuse may have been the result of an ultimatum.
It's clear his co-star/girlfriend Lea Michele is immenseley supportive, but a source claims, "she said she loved him and she couldn’t watch him slowly kill himself, so if he didn’t get help for his substance addiction then she didn’t think they had a future.”
The source continues, revealing Michele "told him how much she loved him, how amazing he was and how he didn’t need to drink to feel good. She adamantly supports Cory.”
It may have been the possibility of a fuiture without Lea that really drove Monteith to seek treatment, with the source suggesting,“Cory did it for her as much as he did it for himself. He sees a future with Lea, he cares about her, and he has seen what happens to people he loves when he spirals ...
