Not even a performance by diva Jennifer Lopez and a shocking finale win can bring back viewership for the ‘ol American Idol, it seems!
Last night’s show had the lowest ratings the program has seen in the history of its finales (and yes, they’ve had 12 of them). In fact, it was down a whopping 47% in preliminary ratings from last year’s finale.
So, half the people decided they had better things to watch. And not overall, JUST from last season’s finale! Yikes.
This is not a good sign for the benchmark reality show, and it kinda goes to show that these programs really do have a shelf life, despite being at one time SUPER popular. The producers will have to do something really awe-inspiring for next season if they want the show to last!
What do you think American Idol will do to keep their precious viewership?

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are back together, of course. The two met up in Norway last week, while Justin’s tour stopped there. Selena was spotted backstage after the concert. TMZ reported that Selena traveled to Norway specifically “on a mission to hook up,” with Bieber, and that’s exactly what happened.
Here’s more on the latest drama from People:
Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber’s relationship appears to be back on — again!
The Spring Breakers star traveled to Oslo, Norway to be with the pop star, who performed a concert there Thursday. And the two have left no doubt that their romantic flame has reignited.
“They were holding hands, hugging and they kissed on the lips,” a source tells People. “They looked really in love, like no fights ever happened before. It definitely looked like they were back together.”
While Bieber, 19, and Gomez, 20, split back in November, they have kept in touch. In late-March, the pop star was spotted visiting the actress’ Los Angeles home.
While a source told People at the time that Gomez was “becoming more and more comfortable with her decision [to split],” it appears she kept some good will for him. “She wants the best for him,” said the source.
Bieber will remain in Europe for dates on his Believe tour. His next scheduled show is Saturday in Copenhagen.
I’m sad to hear they’re back together. He needs to spend a little time growing up before he gets into another relationship. Basically, I’m just not ready to hear all about them again….and get thousands of paprazzi pics of them holding hands.

Justin Bieber needs to be stopped. On Tuesday he shared this cartoon image of himself snuggling with a topless “Belieber.”
He labeled the boy in bed “JUSTIN” and the woman in his arms a “BELIEBER.”
I think it’s really disgusting. What do you think?
Speaking of topless…. See what lies behind the jump! (more…)

Remember when LeAnn Rimes was anorexic? I mean…. anorexic-looking? Allegedly? Well apparently, LeAnn was NEVER anorexic, but instead lost all that weight because she was under immense pressure surrounding her personal life.
“People said I was [anorexic], but I didn’t have a problem with eating, as I ate a ton all the time — I could eat my husband under the table!” she tells the U.K. publication. “But I was going through a time when I just wasn’t sleeping — my mind wouldn’t shut off and my heart was breaking.”
That heartbreak was a result of her very public affair two years earlier with now-husband Eddie Cibrian. As first revealed by Us Weekly, Rimes, 30, and Cibrian, 39, met on the set of Northern Lights in 2009 when both were still married to other people — she to dancer Dean Sheremet, he to future Real Housewife Brandi Glanville. They fell in love and eventually tied the knot, but the last few years have not been easy.
Rimes describes the period after their affair as a “turbulent” one. “To say I’ve been on several roller coasters is an understatement,” she admits to the Daily Mail.
These days, though, she’s in a much healthier place, both emotionally and physically. At least part of that is attributable to her decision last August to enter a 30-day rehab program for “anxiety and stress” issues. The other part, she says, is thanks to the support she gets from Cibrian. NEW BIKINI PIC AFTER THE JUMP – CONTINUE READING! (more…)

Looks like those rumors about Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth calling it quits may actually be true!
Miley’s dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, accidentally told ABC News that the two were “still friends.” Huh? Aren’t they supposed to be engaged? “I don’t know. I know as I was writing a book, I wanted to keep that particular moment [Miley's wedding] as open-ended as possible. I didn’t know the answer,” Billy Ray told ABC in the interview that aired yesterday.
“They’re young, they’re kids, the great news is they’re great friends, they’re really good friends. I play it by ear, I know whatever’s meant to be that’s the way it’s going to happen.”
Apparently Miley, 20, and Liam, 23, were on a break after the “Hunger Games” star was caught cheating with January Jones (allegedly). Rumor has it Liam was fed up with her hard partying. (Case in point) Miley insisted the two were still together.
Billy Ray isn’t the only family member who isn’t sure about their wedding. Hemsworth’s sister-in-law Elsa Pataky, who is married to Chris Hemsworth, revealed last week she isn’t sure about the status of their relationship. “I don’t know,” Pataky said, according to The Sun. “If they get married it would be nice to go.”

Ozzy Osbourne took to Facebook Monday to post a message about the divorce rumors that have been swirling lately.
For the last year and a half I have been drinking and taking drugs. I was in a very dark place and was an asshole to the people I love most, my family. However, I am happy to say that I am now 44 days sober.
Just to set the record straight, Sharon and I are not divorcing. I’m just trying to be a better person.
I would like to apologize to Sharon, my family, my friends and my band mates for my insane behavior during this period………and my fans.
At least they’re still working on things. The couple wed back in 1982, and have 31 years under their belt.
Man, just goes to show how nasty drugs really are. He had been sober for so long before picking them back up. How sad. Hopefully he can stay clean and put his family back together!
Reps for the couple declined to comment.
