Jennifer Lopez revealed a few deets about her upcoming Chris Brown collaboration recently. Find out what she said inside and see what Ryan Seacrest and Randy Jackson said about rumors of Mariah Carey being replaced and watch Sean Kingston’s behind the scenes footage from the "Beat It" shoot.
We told you previously that Jennifer Lopez had hooked up with Chris Brown and producer Cory Rooney to recapture some of tha "Jenny From The Block" magic, and during an recent interview with Extra’s Mario Lopez, she offered a little more insight. She said,
“Yes, when we were in the studio, writing songs and just getting that ‘Jenny from the Block’ flavor back." She added, “We actually worked on a bunch of [title] ideas… and we talked about doing a duet together for his album.”
And in addition to new music, she was recently honored for her charitable efforts when Muhammad Ali presented her with a humanitarian award at Celebrity Fight Night. She explained the origin of the Lopez Family Foundation to Mario saying,
“It’s something Lynda (her sister) and I talked about for many years… when we both got pregnant at the same time it felt like… this is the right time to start it. Let’s do it. Let’s start the Lopez Family Foundation and make it about women and children and healthcare.”

And over at "American Idol"……
"American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest talked to “Extra’s” Terri Seymour recently where he disputed rumors about Mariah Carey being replaced by Jennifer Lopez. He said, "I had not heard about that before that report. I saw Mariah that day and she was firmly planted in that seat, and I see her tonight and I think she was firmly planted in that seat, I don’t think she is going anywhere.”
Meanwhile, Mariah’s good friend and fellow "AI" judge Randy Jackson added, “It’s so weird, it sounds so ridiculous… you hear rumors about these shows all the time. This one was so ridiculous of an idea… anyway, I think that would have hurt a lot of things.”
So we guess Mariah is "safe"…..until the executives vote again!!??
And in music video previews……
Sean Kingston recently shared behind the scenes footage from his new "Beat It" video featuring Wiz Khalifa and Chris Brown. Shot at a secret location in Malibu, he told Rap-Up.com,
“I’m 23, we all grown, so you really see us in a different light. We’re in suits, hot in fashion, just very swag and everything’s real tasteful. Helicopters, luxury cars, Ferraris, classic cars…”
Colin Tilley directed the clip which will premiere on April 29. Meanwhile, Seans Back 2 Life disc drops later this year.
Michael Jordan has released a statement claiming legal documents prove he didn’t father the teenager who’s claiming to be his son. Find out what he said inside….
Basketball legend Michael Jordan has been splashed across gossip pages in the past week after the 16-year-old son of Pamela Y. Smith (shown above) posted a YouTube video claiming to be his son and then she filed legal paperwork demanding Michael to claim paternity.
Back in February, Pamela Y. Smith, 48, filed suit in Fulton County Superior Court requesting that MJ take a paternity test, pay child support and share medical, dental and hospital costs that are not covered by insurance.
So why did Pam do this now? Apparently, Pamela’s son wants to forge a relatiosnip with his father and for now…they think the legal system is the best route. In a statement released earlier, Pamela’s publicist said, "Pamela had no choice but to support her son and his desire to forge a relationship with his father. That’s why she is now speaking out and prompting Michael to do the right thing."
Not so fast…..said MJ’s lawyers today. Michael and his legal team recently filed documents seeking to dismiss Pamela’s case, claming paternity of her son has already been established. And MJ is NOT the father. His legal team told the Associated Press,
"Public records show that the paternity of the child was established in a prior case in this same court many years ago and that Michael Jordan is not the father. He also filed a counterclaim seeking sanctions for the false claims made against him. It is unfortunate that well-known figures are the target of these kind of claims. Michael Jordan will vigorously defend himself and his reputation."
And Michael’s team says Pamela’s suit is a "shameless, bad faith attempt to abuse the legal system." For now, we guess a judge will decide as MJ and Pamela are set to meet in court for Tuesday, March 12.
We reached out the Pamela’s publicist for a comment….and we’re still waiting.
