Jacko Idol?
TMZ reports: Courtney Love on "American Idol" -- intriguing. Michael Jackson on "Idol" -- shocking! It could happen, though, if certain hints dropped by "Idol" producers are to be believed. Realitytvmagazine.com reports that "several signs" point to the possibility that Michael Jackson will have his own "Idol" theme-week, and might even "mentor" the impressionable young talent on the show. 

Why all the Jackson buzz? First of all, "Idol" producers have hinted for weeks at a "big event show" during this season. Also, reports have swirled that Jackson has turned to "Idol" creator Simon Fuller to help revive his flagging career, perhaps involving a comeback show in Las Vegas.

Vanilla Ice The New Taxman
TMZ reports: So, what rhymes with "1099" and "itemized deductions?" We know who would know -- Vanilla Ice, of course. Vanilla who?

No More Pop From Mandy Moore
pr-inside reports: MANDY MOORE is desperate to shed her image as a "throwaway" pop star - and insists she hates the music she made as a youngster. The 22-year-old star, who is set to release self-penned album WILD HOPE later this year (07), made her name with pop hit CANDY in 1999, but Moore is adamant she has moved on from her teenage songstress days, and is now happy to concentrate on her fledgling film career.

She says, "Not to sound bad, but I don't necessarily have to make a record. No one's out there desperately waiting for my next album... So I have to do the music my way. It means too much to me. I can't just go into the studio and make a crappy pop record to please somebody else. Why bother?"
