'GMA' quoted the couple's statement to the press Friday, which said, "We have decided to end our marriage. This was a difficult decision." The report also mentioned Lopez's banner year, including her job judging 'American Idol,' People magazine naming her the "World's Most Beautiful Woman," and her new single 'On the Floor.'
'GMA' also mentioned that Lopez has had several high-profile relationships, and was married twice previous to her marriage to Anthony. The report also mentioned the cliché "Seven Year Itch," which seemed like a reach for an explanation.
Toscano was a true contender on 'Idol,' hitting the highest notes with ease. But rather than fulfilling what many felt to be her destiny, the singer shocked the nation and judges Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson, and Steven Tyler when she was unexpectedly given the boot halfway through the season. However, all is not lost for this makeup-artist-turned-singing-sensation, as she recently signed with Jimmy Iovine's Interscope records. And with the recent release of single 'This Time,' we're sure Pia is well on her way to becoming a pop music mainstay. AOL Music spoke to the singer about her current tour, upcoming album and the current state of her love life.
The TV power couple released the following statement to People:
"We have decided to end our marriage. This was a very difficult decision. We have come to an amicable conclusion on all matters.
"It is a painful time for all involved and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time."
The couple has been married for seven years and recently collaborated on Latin American talent show, 'Q'Viva: The Chosen.'
Lopez joined 'American Idol' last season and has yet to reveal her plans for next season. Anthony recently joined the cast of TNT's 'Hawthorne.'
"It's meant for the kids to come down and use," he explained. "They can be a DJ or a host, they can be interviewed, they can interview each other. And also we'll have celebrity guests stop by and perform for them. But I wanted to come up with something that they can do while they're here, because some of them are here for quite a while."
The first of those celebrity guests was schedule to stop in Friday for a surprise visit, except it didn't surprise AJ, one of the kids at the hospital, who knew it would be Selena Gomez. "I said, 'That not a surprise if you know already. How did you find out?'" Seacrest asked AJ. Turns out a construction worker told him "by accident." AJ may have a future in investigative journalism.
"I'm shy," she said of her unsuccessful 'American Idol' tryouts. "I'm nervous. I don't audition well. And I honestly gave bad auditions. And the second time I auditioned with 'Bubbly,' which is kind of funny. But I didn't look that great. I get it."
Entertainment Weekly confirmed the news with Fox.
When Tyler signed on with the Fox show he signed for multiple seasons. Jackson has also made it no secret that he was sticking with the reality singing competition. Meanwhile, J.Lo has made no attempts to hide her indecision regarding a return to 'Idol.'
"It's everything," said Cook. "This new record, especially, was more of a therapeutic outlet than I think I envisioned when we were going into the process." Cook took a year and a half to write and record the new album, 'This Loud Morning,' which was released Tuesday. He said it allowed him to delve a little deeper into some of those personal issues and to put them into the music.
Cook also played the first single from the album, a radio-friendly rocker called 'The Last Goodbye,' which was released in April.
Liv Tyler didn't meet her father, Aerosmith frontman and 'American Idol' judge Steven Tyler, until she was eight-years-old. Tuesday on 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC), Liv talked about how she was enthralled with her father after they first met, and how happy she is now to see his late-career re-invention as an 'American Idol' judge.
"I remember him talking to me," said Liv, "and I just was listening to him and I was completely mesmerized by what he was saying and I kind of got sucked into his ... Steven Tyler-ness."
Similarly, Liv felt her dad's 'American Idol' judging stint has shown America a side of him she always knew was there. "It's amazing for me to see the world kind of discovering that for the first time," she said. "It's beautiful for me to see him at this point in his life doing something completely new and different."
Also in that short time, the bashful baritone saw his name go down in the history books, as his debut single, 'I Love You This Big,' made the highest Billboard Hot Country Songs chart debut by a new artist since 1984. That's nine years before he was even born. Yes, all these accomplishments to his name, and Scotty McCreery is still in high school.
AOL TV's friends at The Boot caught up with the 17-year-old in Nashville during CMA Music Fest to talk about the obligations that come with winning 'Idol' and why he thinks country music prevailed on the show. They also quizzed Garner's most famous boy next door about his adoring female fans and the country icons he adores himself, one of whom he met for the first time in a somewhat embarrassing situation.
What kind of pressure comes with having won 'American Idol'?
It's a lot of pressure. Just the title of 'American Idol' is something that people can look up to. I'm not Saint Scott, I'm not Mr. Perfect but I want to be that role model. I want to go down the same road that Carrie Underwood did -- kinda separate myself from 'Idol.' Because when you think of Carrie Underwood now, you don't think "'American Idol' Season Four winner," you just think "Carrie Underwood." I want to cross that bridge. There's a lot of pressure and work that goes into it, but I'm looking forward to it.
In the Netherlands, that land of windmills, tulips and endless reality series, a show called 'The Voice of Holland' has become more popular that the Dutch versions of 'American Idol,' 'X-Factor' and all other singing competitions. So, of course, it's been developed for a North American audience, and starting Tuesday, April 26 on NBC and CTV, 'The Voice' will try to make a similar jump to the top of the ratings pile over here.
The show has all the hallmarks of a reality singing competition: celebrity judges (Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton and Cee Lo Green), vapid host (Carson Daly) and a drawn-out audition phase. But it makes one subtle switch to the usual proceedings, and that has me very curious: The judges (called "coaches" in this case) can't see the people who are auditioning. It's a pretty simple twist, but potentially a very powerful one.
Beginning tonight, fans can listen to the opening of Taio's new tune on the official 'Idol' site and submit their own original lyrics. The contest will feature four submission phases yielding three finalists, from which fans will choose their favorite.
Of course, this isn't the first time fans have had a hand in writing a song for the finale. The season 6 coronation song, 'This Is My Now,' and season 7's 'Time of My Life,' both came out of a fan songwriting contest. But writing a tune for a particular artist is another season 10 innovation.
J-Lo is set to receive $12 million for her stint as the newest judge on 'Idol.' Yeah, yeah, yeah, she hasn't officially been announced as a judge yet, but when it comes to this show, the loudest rumors have all been true. So it looks like Lopez will be joined at the judges' table by veteran Randy Jackson and fellow newbie Steven Tyler.
