Exposed: Jennifer Lopez Falls Victim to Wardrobe Malfunction

Kevin Winter/Getty Images(MALLORCA, Spain) -- Jennifer Lopez revealed a little too much over the weekend, as the singer-actress was the latest victim to suffer a wardrobe malfunction in front of the cameras.

Lopez, 41, was in Mallorca, Spain, on Saturday for an appearance on the German television show Wetten Dass?, when a gust of wind blew the lower part of her dress, forcing her to bend over to keep the dress down. It was while bending over that the American Idol judge’s right breast became exposed.

Lopez reportedly regrouped and continued with the appearance on the show.

Jennifer Lopez 'On the Fence' About Returning to 'American Idol'

Kevin Winter/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- It's safe to say that American Idol revived Jennifer Lopez's career, so that's why it's so surprising to hear the World's Most Beautiful Woman say that she's "on the fence" about whether she'll return to the hit show next season.

During an interview with BBC Radio 1, Lopez said, "I haven't been forced to make a decision [about returning] yet and I'm glad about that because honestly, I'm very on the fence about it."

The entertainer signed a one-year deal back in October, for a reported salary of $12 million.

"I had an amazing time doing it, and I loved it but I have a lot of other things happening, and it's going to come down to me making a choice of what I want to do for the next year, and we're really on at the breaking point of 'you have to make a decision right now!'," she said.

She added, "I'm really just enjoying the time of just waiting and seeing."

Lopez's other activities include Q'Viva! The Chosen, an Idol-like reality show that features her and her husband Marc Anthony traveling through 21 Latin countries to find undiscovered talent.

Jennifer Lopez Blocks Nude Video of Her from Hitting Internet

Kevin Winter/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- That so-called sex tape of Jennifer Lopez in her birthday suit shot during her honeymoon with ex-husband Ojani Noa has been blocked from release.

According to TMZ, a Los Angeles judge granted Lopez's request for a restraining order against Noa's current girlfriend Claudia Vasquez, who supposedly is in possession of the honeymoon tape shot back in 1997.  It's been reported that Vasquez was close to sealing a deal to sell the tape to an as-yet unnamed online porn outlet, but the judge ordered that she cannot release the footage without Lopez's permission.

Vasquez reportedly has no plans to appeal the ruling.

Home Video of Jennifer Lopez Nude Could Sell for Millions

Kevin Winter/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Jennifer Lopez seductively danced around husband Marc Anthony on the American Idol stage last season, but never-before-seen home footage of her and ex-husband Ojani Noa reportedly shows Lopez doing seductive things in her birthday suit -- and it could soon hit the Internet.

E! reports that Noa and his people have been talking with some porn distributors, and he's pretty close to signing a deal.

Noa’s manager Ed Meyer told E!, "I've gotten emails from Pornhub, YouPorn, Pulse Distribution, Red Light District and Kevin Blatt, who brokered Paris Hilton's sex tape."

Meyer added, "If an offer looks good, we'll definitely take it."  Offers could reportedly be in the millions.

The footage, captured during Lopez and Noa's honeymoon back in 1997, reportedly shows 15-20 minutes of the actress/singer in the nude, but isn't being defined as a "sex tape" -- TMZ is reporting there's nudity, but no actual sex in the snippet.

The American Idol judge has been fighting for years to keep the footage under wraps, but last week a Los Angeles judge cleared the recordings for release.

Pitbull Says 'On the Floor' Is an 'Honor, Blessing and Opportunity'

Kevin Winter/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- With "On the Floor," Jennifer Lopez is currently enjoying her first major hit since 2003, and a big part of the song's success is due to Pitbull, who's prominently featured on the track.  However, Pitbull says he's just grateful that Jennifer chose him to participate.  He says, "Jennifer's a huge part of me being able to be on that song...and she's someone that I definitely look up to, not only as an artist, but as a businesswoman."  Pit explains, "She is a business, she is a brand, she is an enterprise and that's something that we look to do in the very near future."  The rapper's already on his way -- he holds a major stake in Voli brand vodka, a new low-calorie beverage for which he's also the spokesman.

Pitbull, whose nickname is "Mr. Worldwide," is also grateful that "On the Floor," which was produced by RedOne, has given him worldwide exposure: in addition to reaching #3 in the U.S., it hit #1 in Australia, Germany, Canada and Italy.  He says, "To be able to be involved with someone like, y'know, Jennifer Lopez and RedOne on a track and it be a global record, I mean, it's an honor, a blessing, a great opportunity." He adds, "Hopefully we'll have a couple more that we can knock out together."

Pitbull, of course, is enjoying his own success with his hit "Give Me Everything," featuring Ne-Yo.  His album Planet Pit, which is coming out June 21, also features guest appearances by Sean Paul, Chris Brown, Kelly Rowland, T-Pain and J-Lo's hubby, Marc Anthony.

'American Idol's' Top Three Perform for a Spot in the Finals

Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- American Idol's top three competed Wednesday night for a spot in the finals.

Judges Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler as always were on hand to off their opinions.  Beyonce was also on hand to offer some guidance and premiere her new video, "Run the World (Girls)," from her album 4, out June 28.

There were three rounds of competition Wednesday night.  The contestants chose their first song with help from Beyonce.  Producer Jimmy Iovine chose the second, and the judges picked the third.

Here's what happened:

Scotty McCreery kicked the night off with his favorite Lonestar song, "Amazed."  Beyonce thought Scotty was a "cutie pie" with a full voice, but she was surprised to hear him go into his upper register with "Amazed."  Steven said Scotty just keeps getting better and better and Jennifer agreed, saying Scotty had grown so much this season and adding, "I'm sure there were a million girls out there wishing you were singing that song to them."  Randy applauded Scotty for a smart song choice and called the end of his performance "money."

For the second round, Jimmy Iovine chose the Thompson Square song "Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not" for Scotty because it reminded him of classic Tom Petty mixed with current country. Steven said he'd never heard Scotty deliver a chorus like that before. Jennifer said Scotty was in the zone and comfortable in his skin this round. Randy thought it was a perfect song choice and said Scotty was approaching Garth Brooks' level of performance.

The judges chose Kenny Rogers' "She Believes in Me" for Scotty's third performance. Steven said he'd never heard Scotty deliver a chorus like that, and Jennifer said, "Good job, baby.  So proud of you."  Randy said it was very nicely done.

Lauren Alaina chose Faith Hill's debut single "Wild One."  Beyonce thought it was good that Lauren chose something fun to loosen her up for the first round. Jennifer loved how Lauren really attacked the song, while Randy thought it was a nice song choice and said he could tell Lauren connected with it. Steven thought Lauren was ready for America to just be all over her.

Jimmy chose The Band Perry's "If I Die Young" for Lauren's second song. Jennifer said Lauren had the most beautiful tone in her voice of all three of the contestants, and added that any mistakes Lauren made during the song happened because she was caught up in the moment. Randy said Lauren was in it to win it, even with a few stumbles this round. Steven thought Lauren nailed it.

The judges chose Lee Ann Womack's "I Hope You Dance" for Lauren's third performance. Jennifer said she got goose bumps from Lauren's performance, declaring "I'm going to dare to say you won that round for me already." Randy said the song was one of his favorites, and Steven said Lauren walked onto the stage like she owned the Grand Ole Opry. He thought she sang the song it perfectly.

Haley Reinhart went with Led Zeppelin's "What Is and What Should Never Be," which Beyonce thought was a really interesting song choice. She also loved Haley's presence. Randy said Haley killed it with a song that isn't for the faint of heart and called it her best performance yet. Steven called it superb, and Jennifer applauded Haley for carrying on even though she fell during the performance. Randy joked that he thought the fall was planned.

Haley sang "Rhiannon" by Fleetwood Mac for the second round, at Jimmy's suggestion. Randy said she did a good job, but he thought it felt like a somber moment. Steven said this performance made him remember why he fell in love with Stevie Nicks in the first place. Jennifer said it was a beautiful moment, but she was waiting for Haley to take it further at the end.

Haley took on "You Oughta Know" by Alanis Morissette at the judge's request for the third round. Randy loved seeing Haley rock out in a soulful way, even though she had problems with some parts of the song. Steven said the performance was "amazing," "perfect" and "incredible." Jennifer thought no one could match Haley's vocal power.

The top two finalists will be revealed on American Idol Thursday night at 8:00 ET.  50 Cent, Nicole Scherzinger, and Il Volo are set to perform, too.

'American Idol's' Top Five Sing Songs Old and New

Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- American Idol's top five performed Wednesday night under the watchful eye of Oscar-winner Sir Anthony Hopkins, who was spotted in the audience.

Kelly Preston was also in the crowd, sitting behind judges Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson.  The theme of the night was "Now and Then," with the contestants singing one recent song and one from back in the day.  Jimmy Iovine brought Sheryl Crow in to help mentor the contestants this week.

Here's what happened:

James Durbin kicked the night off with his current song, "Closer to the Edge" by 30 Seconds to Mars.  Tyler loved the way Durbin's audience reacted during the performance, and Lopez said America was feeling it.  Jackson thought this performance really showed where he could go in today's music world.  Jackson also said Durbin was "in it to win it."

Durbin sang Harry Nilsson's "Without You" for his second song.  Jackson called his performance "vocally perfect" and said the competition was his to lose.  Tyler said that the performance was as beautiful as it gets, even though it was "pitchy in a James Durbin kind of way."  Lopez called him a true artist who was serious about winning Idol.

Jacob Lusk started singing both parts of "No Air" by Jordin Sparks and Chris Brown, but he never seemed to find his footing with the song.  Lopez thought this performance helped answer the question of what Lusk would record in his post-American Idol career.  Jackson didn't like that musical direction for him and thought the performance was corny.  He wanted to see Lusk be the new Luther Vandross.  Tyler didn't think Lusk had found himself musically yet, but he does love his voice.

For Lusk's second number, he went with "Love Hurts," a song made popular by The Everly Brothers and Nazareth. Tyler thought he got lost in the song a bit, but he loved the delivery.  Lopez said that vocal took her to another place, even though he had a hiccup in the middle of the song, and Jackson thought the performance redeemed Lusk from his first one.  He also thought Lusk took one of the notes to heights rivaled only by Mariah Carey.

Lauren Alaina was the first girl on stage Wednesday night, singing Carrie Underwood's up-tempo song "Flat on the Floor."  Jackson said that was the direction she should go after Idol, and thought her performance was amazing.  Tyler said her performance was as good as it gets, and Lopez bobbed her head during the performance, saying afterward that Alaina really brought it.

Alaina sang the Righteous Brothers' "Unchained Melody" for her second time on stage.  Lopez said it was a beautiful song sung beautifully.  Jackson said she could sing like a bird, and he was glad to see this side of her onstage.  Tyler said the song was perfect for her, and he could listen to her sing all night.

Scotty McCreery went with Montgomery Gentry's rocking country song "Gone."  Tyler said he danced with the devil on this performance, and Lopez said she loved the way he worked the stage.  Jackson thought it looked like he was putting on an actual concert, and also gave him the "in it to win it" seal of approval.

McCreery returned with "Always on My Mind," made popular by Elvis Presley and Willie Nelson.  Lopez thought it showed him to be a well-rounded performer.  Jackson called him the show's "youngest veteran."  He thinks America now knows who McCreery will be as a recording artist.  Tyler said he couldn't pick his performance apart, calling it "perfect."

Haley Reinhart got her hands on an unreleased Lady Gaga song for her first performance.  Iovine delivered it to Reinhart, and during a phone conversation, she actually got Gaga's blessing to sing it.  It's called "You and I" and will be included on Gaga's new album, Born This Way, coming out May 23, though Gaga has been performing it live on tour for months.  Lopez loved the way Reinhart sounded on "You and I," but she wasn't sure it was a good idea to do an unreleased song at this point in the competition.  Jackson wasn't sure about the song either, though Tyler thought she put all she had into the song.  He liked that she took a song that no one knew and made it work.

Reinhart's second song was The Animals' "House of the Rising Sun," and she kicked it off singing a capella.  All three judges gave her a standing ovation, along with the audience.  Jackson said it was the best performance of the night, and Tyler said she sold everybody with that one.  Lopez said that song had never been sung like that before.

Someone is going home on American Idol's results show Thursday night at 8:00 ET on Fox.  Judge Jennifer Lopez will perform "On the Floor" and give a sneak peek at her new video.  Lady Antebellum will also be on hand to deliver their brand-new single, "Just a Kiss."
