Judge Denies Request For Restraining Order Against J.Lo

A judge denied a request for a temporary restraining order against Jennifer Lopez in Los Angeles court on Friday.

RadarOnline.com was on the scene at Superior Court as Claudia Vasquez, the onetime girlfriend of J.Lo’s ex husband Ojani Noa, lost her bid for a TRO against the singer/actress.

The judge ruled that this was not an emergency situation requiring a TRO. Vasquez is seeking to make a movie or TV show about J.Lo’s life and says she is unfairly prohibited from doing so by previous rulings, which is why she sought the TRO.

    Perez Hilton’s party? Is there some sort of pressure in Hollywood to attend a Perez Hilton’s party so that Perez won’t make your life a living hell, because I can’t imagine any celebrity actually wanting to go to Perez’ party.

    That Britanny girl and Lee looked like they should be married, looks-wise. A perfect American couple, nice smile and a picket fence. IDK, just an impression.

    now, now… didn’t you know Perez has committed to reform his ways? He has turned over a new leaf after all the bullying conversations. *snark*

  • Studio57

    Moria Perez has been trying to be nice on his website ( honestly- no joke here) ever since the teen suicides. He is actually doing a pretty good job.

    Also- Adam was featured on a segment of Fashion Police on E! last night- hysterical!

  • lorismile

    I can’t get over how quickly Adam’s hair grows!!!

    I like the facial hair but not so much with the long hair. Maybe one or the other but not sure about both. Not that my opinion counts. Not that it matters. He’ll have it changed in the blink of an eye anyway…LOL

    I hope he’s having a wonderful time off. He deserves it with how hard he worked last year.

  • LadyBeBop

    Good luck tonight, Brooke. Unfortunately, Saturday night is the least watced night of the week. And her show is up against an NFL playoff game on NBC.

    I’ll be watching the game. But I will DVR Brooke’s show.

  • Studio57

    lorismile- pretty sure they’re extensions. The pic of him that leaked on NYE he still had short-ish hair.

    Good question, lol. Perez has been pretty hit and miss with his musical taste and I think his record label deal went bust- didn’t it?

    And Travis Garland is a good example of why Idol should leave their quest for the next Bieber alone. Lightening rarely strikes twice.

  • Truthiness

    That Adam picture –uh yeah, no. There’s so much wrong with it. The long (weird) hair. If it’s extensions? he needs to take them out forever. The decision to then have a hat, and that hat, on top of that hair is…an interesting one. Than the goatee. Which I actually can be okay with goatees, but with everything else going on, it’s a bit much.

    Yeah, not my favourite of his looks.

  • Moria Polonius

    Lol, I didn’t know about Perez changing his tune. May it last because he used to be a nasty piece of work and commenters on his site were just as nasty. I keep thinking that Adam should stay away from Perez because Perez liking you is nice way to alienate people who just hate whatever Perez likes.

    I like Adam’s long hair but the beard and mustache look fake. Maybe he didn’t dye them well.

    And Lee does seem to always look like he’s just got out of bed.

  • CindyM

    Don’t know if they’re extensions. His hair was pretty long at the last tour stop and that was over 3 weeks ago. His hair grows like a weed and flatironed would def look longer…

    And Lee does seem to always look like he’s just got out of bed.

    Unfortunately for Lee, the chatter these days is predicting when he will be dropped from his contract. I just can’t see RCA investing in Lee as someone who is relevant and competitive in the marketplace.

    A Cappellooza
    By ELISA MALA

    COLLEGIATE a cappella is enjoying a moment — perhaps its biggest since the Yale Whiffenpoofs were founded in 1909. It may be fitting that this year’s ’Poofs, who have the longest tradition, were eliminated early on this season’s “Sing-Off,” the hit a cappella version of “American Idol.” The most popular a cappella belies tradition for pop stylings and beatbox percussion, and stardom is just a viral video away. A few hits:

    Beelzebubs (Tufts University)

    Known for their theatrical choreography, this whimsical group placed second in the first season of “Sing-Off” and won over producers from “Glee,” who asked them to rearrange Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” and provide backup vocals. The song shot to No. 1 on iTunes and, along with a Beelzebub cover of Train’s “Hey, Soul Sister,” was featured on the show in November.

    A Cappellooza

  • JazzRocks

    I love how he (Adam I mean, not Lee :)) changes his look. Never dull, never boring, always exciting to be a fan. I wouldn’t want this look on a permanent basis but then Adam never does anything on a permanent basis. Temporarily – cute & hot!

  • Studio57

    cindy M- Even though it is easy to pull down hair over the side that is shaved, I think in your pic that the hair on his right is still too short, especially since it is all swept to that side.

    For those that didn’t get the E! video- Joan Rivers does a show called Fashion Police on E! with three other people on her panel. Kelly Osbounre was replaced by Nicki Minaj and they did a segement called Starlet or Streetwalker where they blacked out the face of three women and you had to guess if it was an actual prostitute on the street or a movie/singingstar. One was Adam, lol.

    FWIW I think Adam is in the beginning stages of what his red carpet look is going to be like. Hope he grows the sideburns back. I was trying to find that one pic where he has the facial hair and his hair is super straight ( pre- AI) anyone know what I am talking about? He was kind of looking up and off to the side? Love that pic.

  • Dakota01

    I love Adam’s look too! I’m sure it’s making life easier for him while he’s enjoying some “down” time. He can go out and about his daily life and perhaps not be mobbed by fans and paps who don’t recognize his “new” look. Never a dull moment with Adam, that’s for sure. That’s what makes it so much fun being an Adam fan! He certainly is full of surprises. Can’t wait to see what his next look will be!

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Change of Plans looks like a nice, family-friendly TV movie. I think that Brooke may have a future in acting.

    Sony Music has an enviable roster of music and artistes on board that include a broad array of both local and international superstars. Some of Sony Music’s renowned featured artistes include Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, Shakira, Santana, Usher and Adam Lambert amongst others.

    When is Elvis going to tour again? I miss him!

  • steph6449

    When is Elvis going to tour again? I miss him!

    On a co-headlining tour with MJ? :?

  • mmb

    ^^ Sony is performing a ceremony next month to raise both Michael and Elvis from the grave. They will then embark on a joint world tour entitled ” the back from the dead tour”. There is simply too much money to be made for Sony to allow either to rest in peace.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    LOL at this comment from this MTV article titled ” ‘American Idol’ Judge Randy Jackson Predicts Female Winner”:

    And while Lopez and Tyler were a bit coy about whether they would be performing on the show, Randy was not shy about making a bold prediction about this year’s winner. “I think a girl’s going to win the show,” he said, echoing comments he’s made over the past few seasons, the last three of which have been topped by male winners and runners-up.

    Looks like they are taking Randy’s prediction with a grain of salt. ;)

  • Studio57

    This is the Adam pic I was looking for. I really hope the final look will be close to this:

  • Moria Polonius

    Never dull, never boring, always exciting to be a fan.

    Well, we need to do some terrified headdesking and flailing in order to be able to appreciate the times he looks great.

    When is Elvis going to tour again? I miss him!

    On a co-headlining tour with MJ?

    Wow, but Sony can go deep. I suppose people in the afterlife must listen to music too.

    And Lee does seem to always look like he’s just got out of bed.

    Unfortunately for Lee, the chatter these days is predicting when he will be dropped from his contract. I just can’t see RCA investing in Lee as someone who is relevant and competitive in the marketplace.

    Based on his out-of-bed look? Harsh.

  • artemis

    I’m so glad Lee finally has a good sale price at Amazon. $3.99-you can’t beat that price, compared to the $13.99 I saw at a store yesterday.
    That behind the scenes video at Oprah is so cute. I had to laugh at Lee’s expression when they said Oprah was talking about 30 year old virgins-that’s the show he brought his mother and sister to.
    As for Lee looking like he just got out of bed-that must be an appealing look, since some posters keep saying he just won Idol because of his looks. :)

  • fuzzywuzzy

    This is the Adam pic I was looking for. I really hope the final look will be close to this:

  • tls62

    The cool thing about Adam’s new look is, if he’s looking at the flailing on Twitter, he’s probably saying “Really? I’m just being lazy folks.” Lol.

    My hope is he takes the red carpet in a totally new edgy look that takes everyone by surprise. :)

  • artemis

    mmb-“the back from the dead tour” I like it! They could use holograms and blast the recorded music from large speakers-no need to pay muscians. No diva behavior from the stars. Very thrifty, too.

    I like Adam’s new look, and it won’t last long, anyway. At least he’s not shaving parts of his head at the moment.
    As for Perez, it’s better having him as a friend than an enemy-remember all those unflattering pictures of Adam with orangy makeup he used to post?

  • cheese

    Adam looks really sketchy, like he’s playing the villain in a low-budget movie. I’ll admit that I haven’t actually liked any of Adam’s “hot” “sexy” looks, but I think he looks OK with brownish hair, normal clothes and no makeup, which I think I have seen on him exactly once.

    The funny thing is that after years in theater, Adam is exceptionally good at doing makeup. The facial hair is a bit dark for a ginger, so what’s the chances that it is fake, as may be the long hair? Under the smoke and mirrors, it may be the same old Adam, still playing “dress-up.” LOL. We never know what he will come up with next!

  • Studio57

    Re: Elvis and MJ. According to Chris Brown’s twitter, he and Bruno Mars ( who are collaborating together) are the new Elvis and MJ :)

    The point is- Elvis and MJ are still selling and still in the publics conscience.

    Wonder where Chris Brown’s music will be in a few decades.

  • milwlovesadam

    Oh, I do love it when Adam’s ginger shows through, like in that close up pic above. His hair could be parted right down the middle and flat ironed to be this way. The hair also looks brown/gingery at the tips. He looks well rested and sassy. Glad to see that he and Perez have mended their ways. I just like to see people getting along. After seeing Perez’s video about how he promises to be less snarky, he seemed to be sincere. Time will tell.

    I thought he did for Season 8? Did I dream that?

    Nah, he predicted that S8 was a guy’s year.

    Article from NY Times Union about expanding the music arts program in terms of acts they bring in. Interestingly enough the article has a S8 Idols tour pic of Danny and Adam:

    http://blog.timesunion.com/localarts/let-us-resolve-to-expand-our-arts-horizons-to-take-a-risk/10795/

    Gotta, say I do not like that current look on Adam with the dyed goatee and long straight hair :shock:

  • Chicagolaw

    I’m pretty sure Randy picked a female winner for season 8 really early on (like before Hollywood week). They had just come off a season with a male winner and runner-up in the two Davids. He changed his tune once the season began. I’m one of those who doesn’t see AI having a female winner again until the audience demo changes, which probably means never, lol.

    ETA, not my favorite Adam look, lol. But glad that he is taking it easy; must be nice to finally have a little down-time.

  • steph6449

    I don’t remember hearing anything about the girls being good season 8. Certainly once the show started the pimping was all Adam, Danny, Anoop, Matt, and Kris.

    Early on, it was mostly Danny, Adam and Lil getting the pimp treatment, I think, as far as possible winners. And they did seem to like Matt and Anoop in the sense of good vocalists but I never got the sense TPTB saw Matt or Anoop as winner candidates. Kris kind of emerged from the pack over time.

    They seemed to see winner potential in Lil but she just struggled so much when it came to the performances during the finalist phase. But I do remember some talk from the judges about how there were a lot of really good guys that year…as I think there were actually though I also liked Megan and Allison.

    Interestingly enough the article has a S8 Idols tour pic of Danny and Adam:

    Wonder if the S9 tour went through there and they just skipped over the pics, or was that an area where the tour didn’t go or dates got canceled? Aww, though, nostalgia moment for the S8 tour; it was a fun show.

    I’m pretty positive the drums were beaten for the guys all that year. Back at the beginning of season 8 people weren’t thinking this was a show that women could no longer win. People were still thinking that up through season 9 around here. I’m not ready to write off a female winner now that Nigel is back though. He has had every winner he wanted besides Daughtry. He knows how to beat back the frau with a stick.

  • canadiancookfan

    I know Adam likes to change up his looks but this is definitely not a good look for him. It’s actually kind of creepy.

  • connie0128

    I’m thinking Randy predicted a girl to win Season 9 (Remember season 9? Anyone?) Lots of folks (including judges – I’m looking at you, Simon) were predicting an Adam win for season 8.

    (Not me, Kris Allen all the way for me!)

  • tinawina

    Completely OT, but someone just killed a Democratic congresswoman from Arizona. Shot in the head at one of her meet the public events. Killed 5 people total, one of them a child, and wounded 6. It is all over the news right now.

    RIP Rep. Giffords.

    ETA; Now there is one station saying she’s not dead, she’s in surgery. Conflicting reports of course, it just happened so there is confusion all around.

    That’s my memory as well. Not once the show was underway, but before it started.

  • Indigobunting

    OMG, Tina, that is awful! Was it just some random crazy person, personal, political? I suppose they may not know at this point.

  • Truthiness

    I thought he did for Season 8 way in the beginning? Did I dream that?

    I thought he said that there would be a girl winner for season 9. I seem to remember that there was the wanting a Taylor Swift type, I think Kara mentioned something about that. Could be all wrong, totally admit it. The utter boredom of S9 has blocked out most thing about it, from my mind.

    Oh and looking at the full length picture of Adam, I didn’t realize he also included those tragically ugly pants, and with those boots. Whoa. That is one bad look.

    Major news sources are now confirming that she has died. A suspect is reportedly in custody.

    CNN spoke to a hospital spokeswoman & she said the Congresswoman was alive and in surgery with a gunshot wound to the head.

    ETA: A witness says she was shot point blank in the head.

  • tinawina

    OMG, Tina, that is awful! Was it just some random crazy person, personal, political? I suppose they may not know at this point.

    Oh, on the internet there are crazy people on both sides… some saying the shooter was an “illegal” and Some saying it was a “tea bagger”. Of course, no one knows what happened.

    People are stupid.

    And now the news is saying there may have been a Federal judge present who was also shot. But that is not confirmed.

    I’m just so sorry for everyone involved, for the county too.

    But this is OT so I’m going to take it to offline at this point.

    Songwriter Aimee Mayo getting ready to write with Casey James. She tweets, “Getting ready 2 write w/ Casey James- got 2 songs going I’m crazy about- so excited!! he’s a true artist- i’m obsessed w/ his guitar licks

    Well, this is good news.

    Also good news she’s obsessed with his guitar licks instead of the whole list of other obessions some women have on him – hair, eyes, etc. That’s all nice, but his music is what I’m interested in.

    Surprised that the front seats for the Danny Gokey concert at the #sony #CES booth are almost all occupied by middle-aged men.

    I didn’t realize they had seating for the events at the CES concert.

    Gosh-when I first saw the photo of the gunman from his school photo it shocked me as he is the spitting image of my daughter’s ex boyfriend!! This is sad news- seems he is into mind control- likes Mein Camf & is hooked up with 2012 phenomenon!
