Forbes has just released their list of the highest-paid celebrities under 30, and it's no surprise that Taylor Swift tops the list. The singer/songwriter made an estimated $57 million between May 2011 and May 2012. Justin Bieber is at number two on the list with $55 million, followed Rihanna, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry.
Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler is leaving American Idol and returning to his first love, rock and roll. The singer made a press statement announcing his decision to leave, and plugging Aerosmith's upcoming tour and album. Jennifer Lopez made an announcement soon after Tyler did, saying that she would be leaving the show as well. The singer and actress said "the time has come that I have to get back to doing the other things that I do."
With Tyler and J.LO out, rumor is that Mariah Carey may be tapped as a new Idol judge. Though the 42-year-old songstress does have a thing for younger guys, we doubt she'll take on Steven Tyler's very important role on the show of saying inappropriate things to underage contestants.
In a recent interview with the U.K. edition of Glamour magazine, Channing Tatum revealed that there may still be some magic left in Mike. When the actor was asked about the possibility of a Magic Mike 2, Tatum replied "Yes, yes and yes! We're working on the concept now. We want to flip the script and make it bigger."
