Charlie Sheen ‘up for American Idol’

Charlie Sheen is “100 per cent on board to judge the next season of American Idol", it has been reported.

According to TMZ, the actor was named a dream recruit by the show’s producer Nigel Lythgoe for the upcoming season of the talent search.

While the TV executive has not been confirmed to return to the show himself, he also named Jerry Lewis as a potential candidate.

Lythgoe didn’t make it clear whether he was joking or not given Sheen’s troubled past, but he did repeat the Anger Management star’s name several times to the website.

Now the actor has responded and said he would be interested in a seat on the panel if his conditions are met.

“CONDITION #1. Charlie says FX - the network that airs his show Anger Management - must sign off on an Idol deal… but Jennifer Lopez proved being on A.I. can be good for business,” TMZ writes. “CONDITION #2. Charlie says the money has to be right: ‘If the numbers move the needle AND Idol matches 20% of my weekly salary for Autism Speaks, JDRF, and the Boys and Girls Club... then the hell with it. As we say, pour the smoke."

Meanwhile, American Idol season eight runner-up Adam Lambert has denied he has been approached to join the show.

There are reports that Jennifer Lopez will not return as a judge for a third season, so show bosses are searching for a suitable replacement.

“If something like that were to happen, I would be very excited,” he told UK radio station Capital FM. “It’s a rumour as of right now, but man, that would be fun. All I can say is, if it were to happen, I would appreciate it.”

Other stars linked to a coveted seat on the panel include Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus.

    Beyonce’s #Flawless image is embroiled in controversy once again. On Wednesday, a web site called The Beyonce World leaked 224 allegedly raw photos of the musician. The images showed Bey in full makeup for the 2013 L’Oreal ad campaign — but with the kinds of “imperfections” we all have — beauty marks, bumps, creases. In the wake of Cindy Crawford’s unretouched photos, the images have been praised by critics of a beauty industry that sets impossibly high standards, standards that Queen Bey …
