SCIENTISTS NAME NEW MITE DISCOVERED NEAR PUERTO RICO AFTER J.LO

Jennifer Lopez may be thinking life is funny after some scientists gave her name to a water mite species they discovered near Puerto Rico. Biologist Vladimir Pesic of the University of Montenegro said in an email on Wednesday that the group was entertained during its research by the music of the Bronx, New York-born artist who has Puerto Rican roots. Pesic calls it a small token of gratitude for the singer. Pesic is the corresponding author of the study published Tuesday in the peer-reviewed online journal ZooKeys. The Journal humorously states their reasoning for naming the mite after the popular Latin pop star. “The reason behind the unusual choice of name for the new species that J.Lo's songs and videos kept the team in a continuous good mood when writing the manuscript and watching World Cup Soccer 2014,”

BRITNEY SPEARS TIPS WAITRESS 300 PERCENT

Britney Spears tipped a waitress $100 after forgetting to pay her bill. Brit felt ''horrible'' after she and her boyfriend, David Lucado, mistakenly walked out of The Cheesecake Factory in Thousand Oaks, California without settling their $30 bill after eating an appetizer and a salad there this week. A source told TMZ that Spears decided to give the waitress that served her a 300 percent tip on top of the bill after she was made aware of her blunder. A source previously said the couple told the waitress that her bodyguard would pay the bill and left with a doggie bag of leftovers. But the security guard never paid, as he thought Britney had already done it.

WILL SMITH'S DAUGHTER HAS TEN SNAKES SLEEPING IN HER ROOM AND SOME OF THEM ARE UNCAGED

The 13-year-old daughter of actors Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith is reportedly so obsessed with snakes she has as many as 10 as pets. And what's more, they sleep in her room and she even cuddles with them in bed, according to Us Weekly. “She has 10 sleeping in her room and some aren't in cages!” an insider reveals of the slithering reptiles. Willow Smith is said to have multiple slithery reptiles, and her brother Jaden Smith is said to be a fan of them too. The publication reports that Willow got her first boa constrictor back in 2008, when she was just seven years old. The female, named Beauty, became an instant hit with the whole family upon arrival, with mom Jada telling Redbook during a July 2013 cover story that having the constrictor in the house helped cure her fear.

ADAM LEVINE SAYS THE VOICE "HAS GOT A WAYS TO GO" TO MATCH "AMERICAN IDOL," CITES "PROBLEMS" WITH SHOW

The Voice continues to be a hit for NBC, while American Idol ratings are falling.  But even Voice coach Adam Levine admits that his show hasn't come close to being the cultural juggernaut that Idol has been for the past decade or so. Asked by Rolling Stone magazine if he's been surprised at the "decline" of American Idol, Adam replies, "Idol has to be satisfied with what they've accomplished.  The Voice is very successful, but it's got a ways to go if it wants to have as profound an impact as Idol. I'm not going to lie to you: I think there are problems." Among those problems, says Adam, is the failure of the show's winners to become multi-platinum recording stars. "Millions of people watch the show every week and fall in love with a singer, then you don’t hear much from them," he tells Rolling Stone.  "We haven’t had a breakout success, like Kelly Clarkson or Carrie Underwood."

SARAH JESSICA PARKER ONLY WORKS OUT FOR 22 MINUTES IN THE GYM

Sarah Jessica Parker appears to be in top shape and most spend hours in the gym...but that's not the case. "I work out for a sum total of 22 minutes [a day], because that's all I can bear," the actress told an audience during the Cannes Lion film festival. Parker was also asked about a third Sex and the City film, which has been on many fans' minds since the disappointing 2010 sequel Sex and the City 2, which saw the four main ladies -- Parker's Carrie Bradshaw, Kim Cattrall's Samantha Jones, Kristin Davis' Charlotte York and Cynthia Nixon's Miranda Hobbes -- trekking to Abu Dhabi for business and pleasure.  "I know there is a story. I think it's a really lovely, wonderful story but whether or not we tell it remains to be seen," she said.

LOUIS C.K. BEGS FOR REMOVAL OF TRACY MORGAN CRASH VIDEO

Comedian Louis C.K. is leading calls for a video shot moments after Tracy Morgan’s horrific car crash to be removed from the Internet. The 30 Rock star was left in a critical condition along with his assistant Jeff Millea and fellow comedian Ardie Fuqua while comic writer James McNair was killed in the crash in New Jersey on Saturday. TMZ has obtained a video of the scene of the accident shot shortly afterward, showing a man thought to be Fuqua being lifted from the wreckage. C.K., who worked with Fuqua on his sitcom Louie, is now pleading with bosses at the website to remove the footage, writing on Twitter, “Take it down TMZ. Now. Please…Tmz has a video of footage of my friends Tracy and Arte in a terrible crash. They are in ICU (intensive care unit)… Arte’s brave daughter asked them to take it down. They won’t…. Please don’t go to TMZ to watch the video. Please ask them to take it down. @TMZ.”

CELINE DION TO LONELY LAS VEGAS LIP SYNCHER: COME TO MY SHOW, USE MY BATHROOM

A video by lighting designer Richard Dunn showing himself lip-synching to Celine Dion's version of Eric Carmen's "All By Myself" in a seemingly empty Las Vegas airport has gone viral since it was posted to Vimeo on  June 9, racking up nearly 11 million views. One person who sat up and took notice?  Celine Dion herself. Celine originally posted Dunn's video to her Facebook page, and she's now filmed a response for her YouTube channel telling Dunn, a Canadian who now lives in Georgia, how moved she was by his video.  He filmed it literally "all by himself," using the airport's moving walkways and passenger wheelchairs to create complicated tracking shots.  In many shots, he's seen sitting forlornly outside the airport ladies room, under the large "Women" image, and attempting to hold the image's hand.

BRITNEY SPEARS' MANAGER ADMITS THERE IS NO WAY SHE CAN SING LIVE AND DANCE FOR 90 MINUTES

Britney Spears’ manager appears to have backtracked over his comments that the singer would be singing live on her Las Vegas residency. Adam Leber insisted that Britney would be “singing live during her show” and would not be lip synching at her Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino show, back in December last year. But in a new interview with Medium.com, the manager has confessed that Britney does not sing live throughout the show. It's all too much! “To put on the show that she puts on, it’s virtually impossible to sing the entire time and do what she does,” her manager revealed. “She’s singing on every song, basically, when she has the ability to sing. There’s no way you can dance for 90 minutes straight and sing the entire time.” Brit kicked off her residency on December 27 2013 and is reportedly being paid $15 million a year.

ARETHA FRANKLIN SAYS SHE LOVES TO EXERCISE IN WALMART AND KMART

Where does a music legend go to get a little exercise?  If you're Aretha Franklin, you think retail. "I walk super stores -- Walmart and Kmart...Yeah, I walk all of them," the Queen of Soul revealed yesterday. If you're thinking Franklin would be recognized by other shoppers, you're right.  The singer said people often try to come up to her and talk while she's walking, "but I really don't like to break my stride when I'm walking so I just change aisles." Aretha, who turned 72 this year, said exercise is a lifestyle change she made after some recent health issues.  Another lifestyle change: overcoming her fear of flying.  "It won't be too long.  I think by the end of the summer," she said of when she'll travel by airplane again.

TRACY MORGAN IN INTENSIVE CARE AFTER 6-CAR CRASH

Actor and comedian Tracy Morgan was in intensive care Saturday after the limousine bus he was riding in was involved in a multi-vehicle accident on the New Jersey Turnpike, state police said. The vehicle carrying the former "Saturday Night Live" and "30 Rock" cast member and six others was involved in a six-vehicle accident on the turnpike near Cranbury Township at about 1 a.m. Saturday, Sgt. First Class Greg Williams said. Yesterday, Morgan underwent an operation on his leg — one of the many bones which were broken in the crash. In a statement, Morgan’s rep says, “While Tracy remains in critical condition, he has been more responsive today, which is an incredibly encouraging sign.” “He sustained a number of injuries including a broken leg, a broken femur, a broken nose and several broken ribs. He had surgery earlier today on his leg,” says his spokesman. His rep goes on to note, “We expect him to remain in the hospital for several weeks,” adding, “His family is tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans.”

MELANIE GRIFFITH AND ANTONIO BANDERAS SPLIT AS SHE FILES FOR DIVORCE AFTER 18 YEARS OF MARRIAGE CITING IRRECONCILABLE DIFFERENCES

The couple, who fell in love on the set of the 1995 film Two Much, have been plagued by split rumors for most of this year.

I’M OFF THE CLOCK”: DAUGHTRY DITCHES FOX & FRIENDS ATTEMPT TO SING “MY COUNTRY TIS OF THEE”

Former American Idol finalist Chris Daughtry stepped in a pile of outrage this weekend when he awkwardly ditched a Fox & Friends attempt to sing “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee” during the morning show’s after-show. Friday morning was the 70th anniversary of the D-Day attacks, and so F&F host Steve Doocy suggested Daughtry (whose band was off-stage) sing a patriotic tune with the hosts, including Anna Kooiman, Clayton Morris, and Heather Childers. Caught off-guard by the request, Daughtry joked that he is “off the clock,” which prompted some laughter and then an awkward pause in which the hosts fiddled around and seemingly tried to figure out what to do with themselves. Childers grabbed a tambourine and declared it time to sing “My Country,” with Kooiman on lead. Daughtry turned to leave, telling the co-hosts they’ve “opened a can of worms,” and that “this is where I bail.” After considerable backlash, Daughtry took to his YouTube page to apologize, explaining that he was caught unprepared by the “patriotic song” request and was worried that had he messed up the lyrics or sang poorly, there would be even worse backlash than the one he faces now.

TAYLOR SWIFT PROVES SHE'S ALL HEART

The 24-year-old country singer, who has topped DoSomething.org's most charitable celebrities list for the last two years, was again spreading her generosity this week. The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia announced that the Pennsylvania native donated $50,000 to the facility for music-themed initiatives — including a music studio on wheels — that teens in treatment at CHOP's Cancer Center can utilize. The monetary donation alone deserves accolades, but, once again, Swift also proved to be generous with her time. The Grammy winner, who's currently on tour in Asia, also visited several of the patients at CHOP. Photos from her hospital visit show the star wearing her signature red lipstick and meeting with a few of the teens. In one shot, she was leaning sweetly touching heads with a young woman and another was of Swift at the bedside of another girl, signing an autograph.

ANDY COHEN SHOPPING “I SLEPT WITH A CELEBRITY” REALITY SHOW ABOUT STAR HOOKUPS

Andy Cohen is shopping a new reality series called “I Slept With A Celebrity.” The half-hour, unscripted show would feature “two guests dishing about how their walk with fame led to a walk of shame, describing where they met, where they went and what they wore — or didn’t.” “A one-night stand is usually nothing to brag about, but what if the person you slept with is famous?” continues the pitch. “‘I Slept With A Celebrity’ delivers the juiciest gossip from people who say they got to experience the glitz and glamor of Hollywood — and then a whole lot more.” Cohen, serving as executive producer, and Warner Horizon Television are currently searching for a broadcast or cable network to take on the weekly series.
