The news carousel for Idol spins faster when the show isn’t on the air than when it is.

Today’s news from people.com is that Jennifer Lopez is not going to be a judge next season. Apparently her demands were too lofty.

Of course, there are already contradicting reports that say JLo is still in the running.

What is it – Yes? No? Or somewhere in the middle? Is it that she is just a little too “pitchy?”

Elsewhere, Fantasia was released from a North Carolina hospital where she had been since Monday night following an overdose, according to her manager Brian Dickens.
