Breaking: Overdemanding Jennifer Lopez Voted Off American Idol

Boom! Jennifer Lopez is out as an American Idol judge, reports People, because "her demands got out of hand" and "Fox had just had enough" (she'd allegedly been in talks to replace Ellen DeGeneres, but nothing was ever made final). What was she demanding and why did she think — after the collapse of her movie and music careers — she was in any position to do so? Mysteries, both. Her exit leaves a hole at the judges' table between Randy Jackson and Aerosmith's Steven Tyler, and People says Fox "may be looking at their earlier top picks again." So call your agents immediately, Justin Timberlake, Elton John, Bret Michaels, Howard Stern, Chris Isaak, Madonna, and Harry Connick Jr.!
