Jennifer Lopez: I Loved Myself Enough to Walk Away
Her self-respect and the need to be treated properly contributed to Jennifer Lopez’s decision to end her seven-year marriage to Marc Anthony, PEOPLE’s Most Beautiful Person 2011 says in her first interview since the couple announced their separation.
“It’s not that I didn’t love myself before,” Lopez, 42, tells Vanity Fair in its September issue. “Sometimes we don’t realize that we are compromising ourselves. To understand that a person is not good for you, or that that person is not treating you in the right way, or that he is not doing the right thing for himself – if I stay, then I am not doing the right thing for me.”

American Idols Live tour rebounds nicely
First, American Idol’s television ratings went up. So did the vote totals, then the music sales. Now, in its 10th year, the American Idols Live tour has rebounded from a soft 2010 and is once again pulling in crowds.
This year’s tour, led by 17-year-old country singer Scotty McCreery, has sold out at least eight concerts since launching in Salt Lake City on July 6. Through the first 14 dates — the ones reported by promoter AEG Live to Billboard’s Boxscore chart — Idols Live is selling 97% of its tickets, with an average venue size of 8,100.

Interview: American Idol’s Pia Toscano
There are always moments on America Idol that are “what the hell happened?” shockers. Last season’s such moment was the elimination of talented diva Pia Toscano, who had to settle for a ridiculous ninth place finish on the show. However,
while the moment was disappointing at the time, it worked out quite well. The people in the industry took notice of her talent and she is more than halfway through her debut album, working at Interscope with Pleasantville’s own Rodney Jerkins as one of her producers. Her first single, “This Time,” was released on digital format July 12. That never happens for a typical ninth place finisher on Idol.

American Idol’s Casey Abrams talks touring and health
“I’m a very lazy guy,” he jokes on the phone from an Idols Live tour stop in Nashville (sorry, no South Florida date). “But I wanted to lay down more than usual. I had a pain in my stomach, and it was hard to breathe. All the symptoms were happening, and I shouldn’t have waited.”
Abrams, 20, was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and, as Idol viewers might recall, a flare-up early in the season almost cost the finalist his spot in the competition.

David Cook Remembers “American Idols” Tour, Predicts Success for Current Finalists
Calling the tour “so much fun,” he tells ABC New Radio, “[I remember] a lot of small moments. I remember being onstage in Kansas City, at home. We did two nights there, which was incredible…I remember going to Tulsa to end the tour. I remember starting the tour in Arizona. But past that, I just remember being consistently in awe of what was going on. Just like, ‘I’m on an arena tour! It’s ridiculous!'”

‘Glee’ Star Darren Criss ‘Dreams’ Of Meeting Daniel Radcliffe
“The fake Harry Potter has not met the real Harry Potter,” Criss revealed at Comic-Con. “Only in my dreams, and that’s probably as close as I’ll ever get.”
Those dreams might come true now that Criss will need to begin preparing for his stint in “How to Succeed.” There will likely be some sort of torch-passing moment from Radcliffe to Criss, and maybe even a resurgence in fans’ hope to see the two Harry Potters perform together at some point.

‘The Sing-Off’ tackles a longer season, tries to keep results quiet
“The first thing I think about is now we can have more groups,” Gallen said Monday (Aug. 1) at the Television Critics Association press tour. “We’ve gone from 10 groups to 16 groups, so that’s a big thing. Also, I think we can go across more genres of music. We have 11 episodes, so we can do a cappella interpretations of everything from rock to country and hip-hop.”
Gallen also says that if the judges keep a particular group around because of the potential they see, that group will then have more time to prove them right (or wrong), and that “will make for entertaining television as well.”
“The Sing-Off” has already begun taping episodes and will have much of the season in the can before it premieres on Sept. 19.

Cowell: You’ll See a Lot of Honesty on The Show
“I mean, you know, the while point about trying to make a reality show is that you got to be real. And this is what I’m like in real life, you know if I hate somebody, I say I hate them and if I love somebody, I’m happy to say I love them. But to sit there and pretend that mediocre people are gonna be stars is just ridiculous. So, you know, you’ll see a lot of that kind of honesty on the show,” said Cowell.
