She's a woman of many different looks, but could one of them be a version of Whitney Houston?

Rihanna thinks so. Rihanna hopes so. With rumors swirling that a Whitney biopic is in the works, the singer made it clear in an interview with The Press Association this week that she'd love to take on the iconic big screen challenge.

"That would be something that I would have to give my entire life to do because I would want to really pull it off," Rihanna said. "That's a huge, huge role and whoever does it has to do a good job."

  • Whitney Houston on a Red Carpet

Added Rihanna, who is reportedly being considered for the role, along with Jordin Sparks, Jennifer Hudson and others:

"My first song that I remember falling in love with was a Whitney Houston song - 'I Will Always Love You.' It was really inspiring and it made me develop a passion for music, so really she's partly responsible for me being here in this industry."

Rihanna will make her big screen debut this month in Battleship, which opens on April 11. Do you think she'd do Whitney proud in a movie version of Houston's life?

Who should portray Whitney Houston?

As Nick Cannon continues to fight through a series of ongoing health problems - mostly kidney related, which have caused him to scale back on his workload - the singer/actor/reality show host will be taking fans along for the journey.

He premiered "NCredible Health Hustle" on his website yesterday, the first episode in what will be a documentary-type look into Cannon's medical issues, which first popped up during a January hospitalization.

We see Cannon receiving an IV and learning of his diagnosis at one point during the video, as he explains the shortness of breath and swelling that have accompanied the kidney disease. We also see footage of wife Mariah Carey and their twins.

"I thank all of you for the continuous messages, and want you to know it inspires me to keep pushing," Cannon wrote along with the video posting. "Hoping this series serves as inspiration for anyone dealing with kidney disease, lupus or ANY ILLNESS to keep pushing as well."

It looks like Jenna Talackova still has a shot at Miss Universe 2012.

The 23-year-old was disqualified from the competition just last week because she is a transgender woman, but the Miss Universe Organization has now reversed its decision.

Moreover, it's working with GLAAD to update policy on such issues.

Announcing its decision to welcome her, the organization said in a statement it "will allow Jenna Talackova to compete in the 2012 Miss Universe Canada pageant."

The entry is conditional only in that she meet "legal gender recognition requirements of Canada, and standards established by other international competitions."

"The Miss Universe Organization made the right decision and has taken an important first step," said GLAAD spokesperson Herndon Graddick in response.

"Now, GLAAD urges the Organization to include all women and use this incident to speak out in support of the transgender community."

"So many women today do not have equal opportunities for employment, housing and safety simply because they are transgender."

GLAAD added, "The Miss Universe Organization should look to state non-discrimination laws and institutions including the Olympics, NCAA and The CW's America's Next Top Model, which do not discriminate against transgender women."

What do you think? Should Talackova have been disqualified?

So, America will pick its three favorite contestants, out of six, from each team that got to perform on Monday, and those six will move on to the next round.

The also-rans with one from each team moving on. Christina and Blake will get to pick the one remaining singer on their team to advance to the Top 16.

Confused yet? Nice. Anyway, let's get on to the performances!

Team Blake Shelton

1. Jermaine Paul, "Livin' on a Prayer." A bit over-produced, and not his best, but he was pretty good. The coaches seemed pleased, if not simply wowed.

2. RaeLynn, "Wake Up Call." What she sang vocally was an improvement over her Battle Round effort, but the performance might've been over the top.

Sunny Oglesby is pregnant with her first child, according to reports. Say what you will about Palin family tormenter Levi Johnston, but his boys can swim!Future Mayor

Oglesby, a 20-year-old school teacher from Wasilla, Alaska, has been quietly dating Levi for just over a year, and is in the very early stages of pregnancy.

Sunny is pregnant, but isn't showing yet, which may be why Levi hasn't told Bristol Palin, the first girl he impregnated back in the day, the joyous news.

Levi has told his friends, and everyone else who will listen, that Sarah and Todd Palin have completely alienated him from his son Tripp, and he barely sees him.

He says that Sarah and Todd have lied to him, telling him Bristol Palin and Tripp were out of town when they were not, and do all they can to ostracize him.

As a result, Levi Johnston is "so excited" about starting a new family, and wouldn't you be? Sarah Palin won't be involved! It's always Sunny in his life now.

Congratulations to the parents-to-be!

Sarah Jones, a high school teacher and a one-time captain of the NFL's Cincinnati Bengals cheerleaders (the Ben-Gals, if you will) has been accused of sex abuse.

She and her mother, a middle school principal who allegedly covered up the crime, both entered pleas of not guilty during their arraignment on Monday.

Sarah Jones has been charged with sexual abuse of a student, on top of unlawful use of electronic means to induce a minor to engage in sexual activities.

Jones' mother, Cheryl, is accused of tampering with evidence in connection with her daughter's case. Cheryl is currently suspended from her job.

Both Sarah and Cheryl were arrested following a grand jury investigation.

At the courthouse Monday the pair was joined by a dozen supporters, including the family of the alleged victim, according to ABC News affiliate WCPO.

Though the alleged victim's family supports Sarah Jones, Jefferson County Assistant Commonwealth Attorney Sarah Farmer said the case would continue.

"The commonwealth feels we have sufficient proof to go forward," Farmer said.

At the arraignment, Judge Patricia Summe ordered Sarah and Cheryl Jones to avoid contact with the alleged victim and to disable text messaging.

Forensic evidence for the case, taking place in Kenton County, Ky., was collected by taking Sarah Jones' computers and phone records.

The trial date for both Sarah and Cheryl Jones was set for June 27.

The 11 remaining contestants on Dancing With the Stars' 14th season brought it again tonight in the third week of competition. Who stood out on the parquet?

One week ago, we bid farewell to Martina Navratilova, who finished at the bottom of the standings in each of the first two weeks. Not much controversy there.

Monday, you knew the scores were likely to tighten up a bit. And they did.

Maria Menounos and Derek Hough

Coming into the third night of performances, the leaders (Jaleel White, William Levy and Katherine Jenkins) looked to bolster their frontrunner status.

The middle of the pack (Maria Menounos, Donald Driver, Sherri Shepherd, Jack Wagner) looked to make a love, while the rest just tried to stay safe.

Were they able to do meet those goals, or were there big shakeups?

Amazingly, the judges busted out the 10 paddles already, no one finished with fewer than 24 points, and Len called the whole thing awesome. Really!

There is a FIVE-way tie for last, with two additional teams just one point better, and no team fewer than five off the pace - set by the lovely Jenkins.

In short, tonight's elimination should be very, very interesting.

Here's how the leaderboard stacked on week 3 of DWTS:

No more music video teases from Demi Lovato. The young superstar has come out with the real, full thing.

The 19-year is actually make-up free in the following video for "Give Your Heart a Break," which is a track included on her hit album, "Unbroken." How come?

"I want to put it out there and show that women can be independent on their own," she tells E! News, which debuted the video. "I think that's the best lesson that I've learned - to love myself before any other person."

In a recent interview, Jennifer Lopez described boyfriend Casper Smart as a "good egg."

But the 24-year old backup dancer gets down, dirty and totally bad - in the best kind of way - in a pair of new promotional photos!

In two images from her upcoming music video (for the track "Dance Again") J. Lo poses with her young, shirtless man, as the couple blindfolds each other with a black cloth that reads "Love is blind."

The official video drops this Thursday during American Idol and, based on these pictures, it's safe to say both genders now have a reason to tune in...
