Lea Michele Eyes ‘American Horror Story’ Role

Lea Michele and Ryan MurphyLea Michele wants a role on American Horror Story.

The actress is gearing up to film the final season of Glee and intends to remain loyal to show creator Ryan Murphy as long as he wants her to play uptight Rachel Berry - but would happily jump ship to his other pet project for its upcoming carnival-themed series four.

When quizzed whether there might be a Rachel spin-off in the works, Lea remained coy and told chat show host Ellen DeGeneres, "I come from Broadway and on Broadway you stay in a show and that's it. You make it your home. So for me, I like the schedule, I like the routine, and I love Ryan and I love Rachel Berry. So I'll be Rachel singing in a senior citizens home for everyone. I've literally have said before that I will work for Ryan Murphy for the rest of my life. Unless he wants to put me on American Horror Story, I know what the theme is for next year and I'm in if he'll have me at least maybe for one episode. Let's start that campaign right now actually!"

CeeLo Green Quits ‘The Voice’ for His Own Show

CeeLo GreenCeeLo Green has quit the The Voice to host his own show.

The "Forget You" hitmaker has been a judge on the version of the singing contest on the first three series, before returning on the fifth series last year, but has now decided to step back to focus on other TV projects.

"I'm not coming back guys. I'm going to continue my relationship with NBC. I have a television show development deal with them as well and hopefully some other talk show opportunities for later in the year. But yeah, I'm going to miss The Voice too. So I'm not coming back guys," he said, speaking on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Shocked by his revelation, Ellen replied, "Oh, you're not coming back at all? I did not know that!"

CeeLo is hoping to take some time to focus on his music and is excited about the release of his next album Girl Power, which is due out between February and March.

Simon Cowell: Britney Spears Couldn’t Criticize

Britney Spears and Simon CowellSimon Cowell dropped Britney Spears from The X Factor because she wasn't outspoken enough.

The music mogul who is judging this year's singing contest alongside Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland - who was a judge on the UK X Factor in 2011 - and Paulina Rubio, fired Britney as she felt "uncomfortable" in the role.

Simon says the "Ooh La La" singer was unable to give honest, "negative" feedback to the pop hopefuls so he had to replace her. Speaking on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he said, "I kind of booked someone who couldn't talk, which is a bit of a problem when you want someone to judge! She wasn't comfortable being negative, she didn't like it when the contestants spoke back to her, so she was just uncomfortable. I liked her. So we decided to change it this year and I thought I'll work with three girls because I like working with girls."

Britney Spears ‘Electrified’ by X Factor

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Prime Time, Reality, FOX, Gossip,

Britney SpearsBritney Spears finds judging on X Factor "electrifying."

The "Hold It Against Me" hitmaker - who joined the show alongside Demi Lovato after Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul were sacked after one season - admits she was terrified when she first signed up but eventually got into the rhythm of the talent search. "I was really nervous. You have all these people behind you and you know they're rooting on you. It's a really exciting, electrifying thing to do," she said, speaking on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Speaking about her judging style, Britney says she learns from the show's head judge Simon Cowell and always tries to be honest. "I used constructive criticism. I learned from the best. I prefer to be honest. I think that's the best way to go. I wouldn't want to be told something and then waste seven years of my life. I feel like it's the thing to do," she added.

However, Simon - who judged the UK version of the show before heading up the US adaptation - was shocked at how quick she made her decisions about wannabe pop stars. "I've never heard someone say no to contestants to quickly in my entire life."
