God, I hope not. Scooter Braun looks like a dillweed of the highest degree, though I suppose you have to give him his due on exploiting a pre-teen to make millions and millions of bucks off him. Nothing like a grown man named Scooter, am I right? He’s also working with Carly Rae Jepsen and The Wanted now, so I guess he’s expanding his clientele and that makes him worthy of being a judge on American Idol… at least according to Jennifer Lopez (?????).
From US Weekly:
The insider tells Us that the 32-year-old talent manager has met with producers and returning judge Jennifer Lopez to discuss his possible role on the show. “Jennifer loves Scooter and feels he’d be an excellent choice,” the source says. “She would love him to be a judge.” (Sources confirmed to Us on Aug. 17 that the 44-year-old singer will be returning to the show after serving as a judge in 2011 and 2012. She will join Keith Urban, who has already signed on for a second consecutive year on Idol; Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and longtime judge Randy Jackson announced their departures earlier this year.)
The only possible problem? The insider tells Us that Braun would want to manage the American Idol winner, but creator Simon Fuller already has the job.
Well… that’s nice, I guess? Dr. Luke is also in the running to head to the panel, apparently, and while he would be AMAZING, I surely hope he has enough common sense not to board the Titanic, if you feel me.
