J-Lo and Enrique Iglesias Ready to 'Draw Something' with Fans

Lester Cohen/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- If you've recently whipped up a portrait of Jennifer Lopez using your iPhone or Android phone, then chances are you're familiar with Draw Something, the app that has millions of grown-ups taking turns at a sort of phone-friendly Pictionary.   Now, J-Lo and her touring partner Enrique Iglesias have teamed up with the Draw Something app for a special promotion.

Zynga, the company behind Draw Something, has launched its app in 12 new languages, including Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, French, Korean and Japanese.  To celebrate that milestone, J-Lo and Enrique will choose words that will be featured on Draw Something for seven days leading up to their first concert date together: July 14 in Montreal, Canada.

To see new words chosen by J-Lo and Enrique, players can select the "J-Lo Enrique" option in a new Special Words feature on the Draw Something app.

J-Lo and Enrique's tour, which also features Wisin y Yandel, will make its first stop on July 14 at Bell Centre in Montreal, QC.

Confirmed: Enrique Iglesias Won't Tour with Britney Spears After All

Max Morse/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The on-again, off-again joint Britney Spears-Enrique Iglesias tour is apparently off again.

Following the surprising news on Tuesday that Iglesias had pulled out of the joint tour he was slated to do with Spears just hours after it was announced, there came a report from Billboard.biz that negotiations were underway for the tour to continue.

Now, however, ABC News Radio can confirm that the joint tour is, in fact, a non-starter.

In a statement, Iglesias' manager Gary Mantoosh said, "Unfortunately, Enrique Iglesias and Britney Spears will not be touring together.  Despite initial reports based on formal discussions of the possible run, Enrique will continue on his solo tour in support of his new album, Euphoria.  Enrique has great respect for Britney and is a longtime fan of her work.  He is very sorry for the confusion this might have caused to anyone."

Apparently, the sticking points in tour negotiations were money and perception.  According to Billboard.biz, Spears was going to be paid several times more for the tour than Iglesias, and it was being perceived as "Britney's tour," even though the two were, in fact, co-headliners.  That perception was reinforced by the fact that Spears was the one who announced it, and she did it on the day her own album, Femme Fatale, was released.

As for the money, there's a question as to whether or not Iglesias would also receive a piece of the tour's box office receipts, as well as a guaranteed dollar amount per show.

Enrique Iglesias Pulls Out of Britney Spears Tour 

Rob Verhorst/Redferns(LOS ANGELES) -- Just hours after his co-headlining tour with Britney Spears was announced, Billboard.biz is reporting that Enrique Iglesias has now pulled out of the tour. The promoter, LiveNation, has declined to comment, but Billboard promises more details later Tuesday. So far, there's been no statement from Enrique's rep either.

Billboard.biz reports though the double bill of Britney and Enrique would've been a good value for fans, the tour itself would've been very expensive to produce, because both acts were going to hit the road with full-scale productions.

Enrique Iglesias to Be Judge on 'X Factor'?; L.A. Reid Confirmed

Universal Latino/Universal Republic(NEW YORK) -- Now that the judges for NBC's new reality singing competition The Voice have been announced, everyone's waiting to see who Simon Cowell will tap to judge his new reality singing competition, X Factor, which premieres this fall.

A source close to Enrique Iglesias has confirmed to ABC News Radio that the singer is being courted, not just to judge the show, but to actually host it.

The source confirms that producers are looking to differentiate X Factor from American Idol and The Voice, because neither of those shows has a music superstar as a host.  However, Iglesias may be more open to the idea of simply being a judge on the show, though he also may simply turn down any offer because his music career is doing so well that he wants to focus on that for the moment.

Ostensibly, X Factor would need to have its judges in place before the show begins auditions on March 27, and it seems one judge has already been locked in.  According to The Hollywood Reporter, Antonio "L.A." Reid, the chairman of the Island Def Jam label, has agreed to the role, with sources saying, "It's a done deal."

Reid will reportedly be granted an early release from his contract with Island Def Jam's parent company, Universal Music, so he can take part in The X Factor.  His deal with Universal Music is currently slated to run through December.

Reid is expected to be officially named an X Factor judge later this week.
