Hollywood Dirt: Mariah Carey’s Dressing Room Must-haves + J-Lo Wanted ‘Idol’ Job Back & More
JENNIFER LOPEZ APPROACHED FOX ABOUT RETURNING TO 'AMERICAN IDOL': Last week, Fox denied a rumor that they were thinking about bringing back JENNIFER LOPEZ to replace MARIAH CAREY on "American Idol" mid-season. But now word is it was actually J-Lo who approached Fox about getting her old job back.
According to the not-always-reliable RadarOnline, Lopez had her manager reach out to "Idol" to let them know she no longer interested in touring and wanted to know how they felt about her coming back. The gossip site's source says Jennifer missed the stability that "Idol" provided and the time it allowed her to remain home with her five-year-old twins. But, the source adds, J-Lo never suggested that she replace Mariah.
DIVA DRESSING ROOM REQUESTS: Celebs are used to making demands. And that means when they want something, they get it – no matter how odd, demanding or ridiculous the request. Take TAYLOR SWIFT, for instance. T demands her dressing room be filled with Twizzlers, Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, Welch's Grape Juice, two pints of Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, an avocado and Smart Water.
Here are a few other bizarre A-Lister dressing room rider requests culled from various celebrity news websites ...
LADY GAGA needs her dressing room to be fully stocked with wine, a humidifier, a DVD player, Red Bull Light with ice, unscented candles, veggie hot dogs, an entire smoothie station and a mannequin with pink hair down there.
MARIAH CAREY must-haves include drapes everywhere, a steady room temperature of 75 degrees, warm fried chicken, melon-flavored Gatorade, white roses, and protein shakes.
RIHANNA absolutely needs a leopard or cheetah throw rug that is clean enough for her to walk on barefoot, white tulips without any other foliage in small, square, clear glass vases, 6 candles and the room has to be cloaked in dark drapes.
BEYONCE'S queen-like requests include a catering table, seasoned chicken and vegetables, and only Pepsi products.

KIM AND KHLOE MISERABLE IN GREECE?! THE KARDASHIAN KLAN is currently on vacation in Greece, but not everyone’s having a good time. At least not according to Radaronline.
The gossip site claims KIM and KHLOE are miserable because they were forced to go on the family trip, which meant being away from their men. The reason they had to go is because it's being filmed for "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" which means they were contractually obligated to be there, but Khloe would rather be at Lamar Odom’s side while he competes in the NBA playoffs. Kim’s baby daddy KANYE WST was invited to tag along, but declined saying he was too busy working on his music.
Oh, by the way ... if you come across a site on the Internet that purports to be Kim's baby registry, don't fall for it.
TMZ says Kimye wants to make it clear to family, friends and fans that any online Kardashian baby registry is a fake. Furthermore, they don't want nor do they need a coffee maker from you or anyone else regardless of how expensive and tricked out it may be. Instead, they ask that you cut a check to the Lurie Children's Hospital in Kanye's hometown of Chicago.

REESE WITHERSPOON SAYS BABY STOLE HER BRAIN: In a new interview conducted before she was arrested for disorderly conduct, REESE WITHERSPOON admits she’s lost her mind, and her new son Tennessee is to blame.
"Ever since I had the baby, I can't remember anything. Serious, this child stole my brain," Witherspoon tells Red magazine. "I'm losing friendships over forgetting to get back to people. But you can't keep up with everything. I've got a 13-year-old [Ava], a nine-year-old [Deacon] and a baby." She says that keeping track of her children is, “like CNN ticker tape running through my mind at all times...It doesn't stop."
