Lady Gaga hopes to play Amy Winehouse in an upcoming movie about the late singer’s life. Lady Gaga wants to play Amy and thinks that this will be the perfect role to launch her into the acting world. A source said, “Lady Gaga worshiped Amy and would love nothing more than to transform herself into her idol on the big screen. She’d be spot on performing Amy’s songs and has got the right look and bolshy attitude. Gaga’s been itching to make the transition from music into movies and sees this as the ideal role to launch her film career. Gaga’s management team had been discussing possible film ventures before Amy’s untimely death. But there’s only ever been one role she wants and that’s to play Amy.” Rumor has it Lady Gaga could not speak for 48 hours after hearing about Amy’s death. I could see Lady Gaga playing role, but I think it’s too soon to already be casting.
Jennifer Lopez’s rumored $20 million American Idol contract is causing some friction among the other judges. Reports say Steven Tyler, who is halfway through a two-year deal worth about $10 million a year, wants a raise after hearing that Lopez might make twice as much as him next season. A source said “Steven is halfway through a two-year deal, and his management has asked for more money. They argue he was just as sensational and as popular on the panel as Jennifer. But, on the other side, show bosses argue he’s tied into a deal and has to stick to it. However, it’s hoped they can come to a compromise to keep Steven happy, because the producers love him.” No word on if Randy Jackson has anything to say, but I really hope they work something out because I personally love Steven on the show!
