Typically, all Nick Jonas needs to do to make teenage girls scream is show up someplace.

But the singer really made fans go crazy at the Concert for Hope last night - and you won't believe how: by singing a verse from "Friday," the track that has made Rebecca Black famous/infamous.

Love that 13-year old singer or find her all that's wrong with the Internet, fans in Universal City, California went crazy when Jones covered her new smash. See /hear for yourself:

Karen Rodriguez was eliminated from American Idol last week. After wiping off her makeup and hugging goodbye to all the finalists, the aspiring singer says she took the long view.

She told E! News:

"I always lived by the words 'Everything happens for a reason,' and there have been so many instances in my life where I've lost some things and you don't really know why [at the time], but in a few days or a few months I will see why. Maybe if I would have stayed in the competition longer, there would have been an opportunity I might have missed out on."

Elimination Song

What does Karen want to do next? Everything, just like a certain American Idol judge.

"I would love to do movies and commercials. That would be one of my dreams. I admire Jennifer Lopez so much for that because she's been able to handle that so well, having music and movies and doing everything she's been doing, so I definitely want to be like her."

Rodriguez may have lost out to more popular contestants such as Pia Toscano, but the elimination hasn't put a damper on her confidence. She says:

"There are so many things above American Idol that I want to do. I want to win a Grammy. I want to win an Oscar. I want to do so many things that will just keep topping the other."

If Bradley Cooper liked it, he would have put a ring on it.

That's the angle Renee Zellweger took over the last few weeks, as friends say this famous couple recently split due to the actress' desire to get married.

"She wanted a ring, and he just wasn't ready to propose," a source tells Pop Eater.

Bradley Cooper and Renee Zellweger

Both Cooper and Zellweger have been married before, with the former divorcing Jennifer Esposito in 2007 after just four months as husband and wife.

Renee was ready to give it another try with Bradley," an insider says. "She's 41 and has an Oscar. She's starting to think about children and settling down, while Bradley loves his life exactly as it is. It's taken him a long time to be an A-list actor, and he's enjoying all the perks, fame and opportunities that have come his way following The Hangover."

Along those lines, check out this teaser trailer for The Hangover 2. It comes out on May 26.

While Charlie Sheen is finding new and ridiculous ways to rake in millions, his famous father continues to hope and pray for his son.

In an interview with Great Britian's Telegraph Magazine this week, Martin Sheen says Charlie is "emotionally" a child, explaining:

"Because when you're addicted, you don't grow emotionally. So when you get clean and sober, you're starting at the moment you started using drugs or alcohol. You're emotionally crippled."

Admitting he's experienced "psychotic episodes in public," Martin says he can relate to "what Charlie is going through. And when you do something like that, that is out of control, that's the most difficult thing. You have to have courage."

Martin has not given up hope, however.

"Faith can help all of us. Addiction is the dark side. It's a reflection of despair. And it's fed by all the other negativity."

At Saturday night's GLAAD Media Awards, Ricky Martin walked on stage and accepted the Vito Russo Award, which honors openly gay and lesbian entertainers.

The honor arrived one year after the singer admitted to the world that he's gay.

"I've been through an intense spiritual process for the last five years, especially the last two years," he told reporters at the event. "I needed to share it with the world."

Adding that "I've only started" in his mission to spread GLADD's message of love and acceptance, he added:

"Let's share the love! Let's go to Mexico! Let's go to Columbia! Let's go to Argentina! Let's go to Chile! Let's go to Brazil! We need you GLAAD – we need you down there. I can help, I can do it! I'll be part of it. I want to be part of it."

While no dates have been announced yet, the Grammy-winner is prepared to do just this via an upcoming tour.

Congratulations are in order for Melanie Brown and Stephen Belafonte. The couple is expecting its first child this year.

Sources say the former Spice Girl will give birth to her third baby this summer. She has a 12-year-old daughter named Phoenix and a three-year-old daughter named Iris from previous relationships.

Julie Bowen and Oliver

"We're really thrilled," Brown told Great Britain's Hello Magazine. "We wouldn't have planned and waited for four years to have a baby if we weren't excited and ready for it."

Interestingly, Brown's former singing pals, Emma Bunton and Victoria Beckham, are also pregnant. Forget "zigazig ha." Looks like what these women want, what they really, really want, is to have a family.

Will X mark the judging spot for Nicki Minaj?

Insiders tell The New York Post that Simon Cowell has met with this hip hop star about coming on board The X-Factor this fall as a judge. She would join recently-announced producer L.A. Reid on the panel if she agreed to make the move.

Nicki Minaj: The Devil?

"Simon thinks Nicki is fantastic. She's sassy, she looks great and she has bags of personality," a source tells the newspaper. "Nicki has a large following and she fits well with the ethos of the show, which plans to usher in a new generation of musical talent."

Auditions for The X-Factor kick off on March 27.

This would be an unusual gig for Minaj to accept, considering her current popularity. Most singers join a reality show to revive a career (see Aguilera, Christina on The Voice and Lopez, Jennifer on American Idol). Other names under consideration include Tommy Mottola, Nicole Scherzinger and Cheryl Cole.

UPDATE: We can now answer the question posed in the headline: No. Sources have said Minaj will NOT serve as a judge.

For those who thought it would never be appropriate to compare Justin Bieber with Michael Jackson, we have three words for you: never say never.

The 17-year old icon has set a new box office record with his first foray on to the big screen, surpassing the King of Pop in the process. Through yesterday, Bieber's Never Say Never has earned $72.2 million domestically, becoming the most successful concert-themed film of all-time in the United States.

Bieber-gasm

Jackson's This Is It brought in $72.1 million.

Bieber will never catch MJ on a worldwide basis, however.

This Is It, which chronicled Jackson's final tour preparations prior to his June 2009 passing, has garnered an unfathomable $189.1 overseas. Bieber's biopic has only grossed $10.8 million outside America.

Another point of historical comparison: Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour earned $5 million internationally in 2008 and $65 domestically.
