Gossip Cop Founder Narrowly Avoids Becoming People’s ‘Hexiest Man Alive’

First, we wrote about how People magazine embedded their 2012 “Sexiest Man Alive” issue into last night’s episode of Don’t Trust the B— in Apartment 23. Then, we wondered if a November 3 scoop by gossipcop.com “top cop” Michael Lewittes might hex Channing Tatum and prompt the magazine to opt for someone else. Today, with Tatum still strutting his stuff on the cover, we’re debating if mention of the actor in last night’s episode might have had something to do with the magazine’s decision to stick with the 32-year-old actor.

Lewittes’ SMA advance reveal was a huge media scoop, the latest in a long line of solidly vetted exclusives published by the three-year-old New York-based website. “We’ve had a number of scoops,” Lewittes tells FishbowlLA via telephone. “For instance, when no one even had Jennifer Lopez or Steven Tyler for American Idol, we went with it. Everyone thought we were crazy, and when it was announced a couple of weeks later, they realized we were right.”

Adding insult to injury, Gossip Cop posted the Tatum cover at 6:45 a.m. ET this morning, about an hour ahead of people.com, after grabbing a copy at a local newsstand. All in all, we’re pretty sure Lewittes’ nickname around the hallways of the  magazine is nothing close to “magic Mike.”

Jennifer Lopez the Latest to Quit American Idol

Guess 12 hours wasn’t enough time for American Idol to convince Jennifer Lopez to stay.

Lopez followed Steven Tyler out the door, calling into Ryan Seacrest‘s radio show on Friday to break the news.

“I honestly feel the time has come to get back to do what I do. I have put it on hold because I love Idol so much. You have a lot of other responsibilities and other things you want to do,” Lopez told Seacrest. ”We had an amazing run.” Read more

Steven Tyler Quits American Idol

You just got played, American Idol.

After a two-year stint in order to become relevant again, Aerosmith lead singer Steven Tyler is quitting the Fox singing competition show:

“After some long … hard … thoughts … I’ve decided it’s time for me to let go of my mistress ‘American Idol’ before she boils my rabbit. I strayed from my first love, AEROSMITH, and I’m back – but instead of begging on my hands and knees, I’ve got two fists in the air and I’m kicking the door open with my band. The next few years are going to be dedicated to kicking some serious ass – the ultimate in auditory takeover. On Nov. 6, we are unleashing our new album, Music from Another Dimension on the Earth, Moon, Mars, and way beyond the stars. IDOL was over-the-top fun, and I loved every minute of it … Now it’s time to bring Rock Back. ERMAHGERD.”

Of course Tyler is leaving the show just months before Aerosmith drops an album.

Steven Tyler Demands Apology From Jason Whitlock

Looks like Steven Tyler is sensitive when it comes to his awful singing.

According to The Big Lead, the American Idol judge is demanding an apology from FoxSports.com columnist Jason Whitlock, who tweeted Sunday, “Steven Tyler far more obscene than Janet Jackson’s tit*y.”

Little does Tyler and his people know that Whitlock doesn’t back down to anyone — he told The Big Lead that an apology isn’t coming.

If his tweet wasn’t bad enough, Whitlock went on KLAC’s Loose Cannons Monday afternoon and said Tyler looked like, “Lesley Visser with a wig on.”

Um, yeah, good luck with that apology.

American Idol Judge Butchers National Anthem

Well, this sure won’t help ratings next week.

American Idol judge Steven Tyler butchered his way through the national anthem Sunday afternoon prior to the Baltimore Ravens-New England Patriots AFC Championship game.

Even Carl Lewis thinks Tyler’s singing was awful.

Ross Mathews Finally Makes It Into an Oscar Night Party

All these years of doing bits for Jay Leno, and Sunday, February 27th turned out to be the first time Ross Mathews finally crossed over from the red carpet into a big-time LA Oscar party.

His report from Sir Elton John‘s fundraising bash at the Pacific Design Center aired Monday and features a range of celebs including Jamie Foxx, Glee‘s Jane Lynch, Paul Rudd, American Idol judge Steven Tyler, and Modern Family‘s Eric Stonestreet. A running gag had Mathews asking each famous interviewee to donate an item to Jay’s “gift bag.”

Things took an unexpected turn for the X-rated when The Tonight Show correspondent ran into Tori Spelling. The combination of her crotchless panties and the venue’s mirrored floor actually led to some brief NBC blurring:
