With rumors of Adam Lambert on American Idol making the rounds, show sources now confirm that TV's top-rated program really is looking to make wholesale changes.

It may very well replace Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler.

"No one has signed any contracts yet and producers are currently putting out feelers and setting up meetings to see who they can get," an Idol source tells E! Online, adding that the following names are under panel consideration:

  • Miley Cyrus, No Pants
  • Katy Perry Goes Retro
  • Nicki Minaj in Vogue
  • Picture of Fergie

Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Fergie, Katy Perry and Will.I.Am.

Sounds like ideal poll fodder! Vote now and decide which of these candidate would make the best American Idol judge:

Russell Brand's new TV show, Brand X, isn't getting a whole lot of support. At least not from funny graffiti artists around the greater L.A. area.

Check out this photo captured by TMZ of a billboard for it ...

Brand Billboard

Katy's 3D movie isn't even out yet (check out the Katy Perry: Part of Me trailer), but some clever, adventurous vandal clearly isn't a fan of Russell's new show.

The billboard seen above is located on L.A.'s Sunset Blvd. Hey, if you're going to deface someone else's property, you might as well be somewhat creative.

FYI, you can check out Russell's Brand X tonight on FX after Charlie Sheen's much talked-about new show Anger Management and Louis CK's Louie.

Sometimes it just doesn't work out.

That's the bottom line when it comes to Katy Perry's marriage to Russell Brand, she says in her new documentary, Katy Perry: Part of Me, which chronicles the many highs and lows in Katy's personal life as well as her stage persona.

"Being in love is a dream, but the reality is not like the movies. There's a lot more compromise and sacrifice," says Perry, and she knows from experience.

Prior to their split, Perry informed her management that the longest she would go without seeing Brand was two weeks; it didn't always turn out that way.

At one point, a frustrated Perry learned she'd go 18 days without him. "Where are my relationship days?" she asked, looking at her jam-packed schedule.

The constant traveling took its tool even when she had them. "She'll fly to wherever Russell is," a team member said. "She's running herself ragged."

One scene from the film shows Katy Perry without makeup on an airplane, looking into camera and admitting: "I'm trying to keep my marriage alive."

After Brand filed for divorce in December, Perry was visibly and understandably upset. "The truth is I'm a romantic and I believed in the fairy tale."

"I did everything I could but it still failed," the "Wide Awake" singer said. "The dream of being in love is a lot different than the reality of making it work."

A day after the release of her Alice in Wonderland-esque "Wide Awake" music video, Katy Perry graces the cover of the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter.

The 27-year-old looks gorgeous on the cover:

The article promises Confessions of a Pop Princess, and among them is the fact that Katy, like everyone else, struggles to keep it together sometimes:

“There were times when what was going on in my personal life was so overwhelming that I had to bend over to let those tears fall straight out of my eyes and not my false eyelashes just as I’m about to go up on that ramp and sing ‘Teenage Dream.’”

On whether Russell Brand inspires her music, she says, “When I write my songs, honesty has always worked for me. So if it ain’t broke, why f—ing fix it? … Nobody knows what happened [in the breakup] except the two people who are in it.”

Katy also revealed plans to start her own label:

“When it does come to fruition, I’m going to try and avoid the things that take away any fighting chance for an artist to have financial success.”

Katy Perry has said time and again lately that she's not perfect and that her life is not a fairy tale. This is the theme of her "Wide Awake" video.

It starts off with KP wrapping up the shoot for "California Gurls," before being transported to an alternate reality by a younger version of herself.

Take a look at it below and tell us what you think!

"It's kind of like the labyrinth of my life in the last two years," Perry explained to MTV.

"I just wanted to tell a story about myself kind of going through this journey, maybe sometimes trying to get out of a maze. There's good parts and bad parts."

Is one of those bad parts an allusion to Russell Brand?

She'll probably tell you it doesn't, but at one point of the music video, our fair Katy Perry meets - and decks - her Prince Charming. Fitting.

It was a big night for Katy Perry on Sunday in Toronto, as the pop singer took home a pair of MuchMusic Video Awards.

Selena Gomez, conversely, did not enjoy such luck, although the date she went on Saturday with Justin Bieber should be enough to hold her over for the next decade or so.

In the following Fashion Face-Off, we pit the former Mrs. Russell Brand against the possibly future Mrs. Bieber. Which donned a prettier outfit on the red carpet? Decide now.

Russell Brand is fairly zen about his divorce from Katy Perry.

In an interview with the Lorraine show on the UK's ITV1 while doing publicity rounds for Rock of Ages, the British funnyman offered up a rather sanguine view.

"Well, it did work out in a way because you are married for some time, and that's really good, and then you're not married, and that's really good," he said.

Right??!? Profound yet simple. Best spin on a divorce ever!

The 37-year-old Brand and the 27-year-old Perry swapped vows in October 2010 in a lavish ceremony in India only to see their marriage unravel in 14 months.

While divorce is never easy, he's come to terms with it.

"You just have to have acceptance of things. She is a person I love, but now this is a new time. I suppose divorce is difficult, isn't it, because of the admin! There's a lot of admin!"

Seriously. On a different level of love, Brand gushed over ... Alec Baldwin.

"He's like sort of a big powerful, hairy, sexy uncle," he said of his Rock of Ages co-star. "Which in the wrong circumstances could be a terrible thing."

"But in the circumstances that I found myself in, it was really lovely. He's really friendly, and he's really clever, and really sweet and gave me wonderful advice."

Random, hilarious bromance alert?

Katy Perry was channeling her inner flapper Tuesday night.

The star, looking like a character straight out of The Great Gatsby, turned heads at a City of Hope event in Los Angeles with finger waves, a funky head piece in her hair, a long pearl necklace and a pink-ish dress that resembled a neglige.

In short ... she was sexy. See Katy Perry pictures below!

Once inside the event - at which the City of Hope's Music And Entertainment Industry Group honored Bob Pittman at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA - Perry changed into a simpler black dress ... leaving us wanting more '20s.

What do you think of her look? Vintage? Elegant? Racy? All of the above?

Katy Perry may totally be over Russell Brand for good, but she’s still staying close to her more recent ex, guitarist Robert Ackroyd, according to reports.

On Wednesday, the “Part of Me” singer reunited with the Florence + the Machine member in London, where she's promoting her new 3D film.

The pair, who reportedly broke up after a month of dating, were spotted having dinner at the Dove before leaving the trendy eatery together.

Katy Perry, Robert Ackroyd

According to reports, Katy was the one who called it quits after the couple were seen canoodling at the 2012 Coachella Music Festival in May.

“It wasn’t that serious. It’s not a nasty thing and they are still talking, but Katy told him to do his thing,” a source told Us Weekly at the time.

From all accounts, they remained close and there were “no hard feelings.”

Since her marriage ended, Katy has been pretty vocal about what went down with her divorce, both through song and through interviews.

“I think sometimes people think that we’re perfect, and we’re not, at all,” she said, and that means more than showing Katy Perry without makeup.

“I think it’s important [to] start breaking down the idea that you always have to be perfect, or flawless or live in some kind of fantasy world."

No real confirmation yet on whether Robert Ackroyd getting back together with her is anything more than fantasy, but stay tuned.

Stars without makeup = all the rage these days.

We've seen Demi Lovato and Lady Gaga without makeup, among others, in recent weeks. Now another big-name music star is joining these natural ranks:

Miss Katy Perry, as part of her Part of Me film.

Check out this lovely backstage shot from her 3-D documentary, which chronicles her life and recent touring exploits and hits theaters this summer:

Katy Perry With No Makeup

An adorable and bare-faced Perry shows off a million-dollar smile (and what looks like a candy-cane inspired outfit) in this particular backstage shot.

Somehow we're guessing she feels a bit better about this than the time Russell Brand Tweeted that unflattering pic of Katy Perry with no makeup.

This one wasn't three inches from her face, which helps.

Katy was well aware of the all-access nature of the 3-D film, too, saying she wanted people to see her how she really is, even if that's not flawless.

"When you see the film, it's a bit scary because there's a lot of shots of me bloated with zits and normal," she told Ellen DeGeneres while on her show.

"I think it's important to start breaking down the idea that to achieve your dream you always have to be perfect or flawless or live in a fantasy world."

Refreshingly modest, but Katy's still a fantasy for most guys.
