Jennifer Lopez Newsbits:

Cowell had designs on J-Lo’s house
Simon Cowell has more in common with Jennifer Lopez than just tightly-stretched clothing.

The Pop Idol grump tried to buy the Hollywood diva’s Los Angeles mansion and went so far as to have a tour of the rambling house.

When it sold to somebody else, Cowell supposedly called J-Lo and asked for the number of her interior designer.

Cowell was so impressed with the beige and wood decor in her bedroom he wanted a similar style for the home he bought close to the California studio where he is currently shooting the US version of his hit franchise, American Idol.

Lopez, meanwhile, has emerged from her newly-wed cocoon with husband Marc Anthony to launch a promotional blitz for Rebirth, her new CD, which was released on Tuesday in the US.

The source claims J.Lo was unhappy to share a manager with chart rival and longtime foe Mariah Carey.

LOPEZ: I DON’T WANT TO BE MERYL STREEP

Jennifer Lopez has refused to quit her singing career – even though studio bosses believe she has the potential to be the next MERYL STREEP if she concentrated solely on acting.

The JENNY FROM THE BLOCK beauty has no regrets about starring in box office flop GIGLI alongside former fiance BEN AFFLECK, because she insists on being true to herself and would feel fake following in the OUT OF AFRICA star’s footsteps.

The 35-year-old says, “I’ve done movies that are not great and are successful. I’ve done movies that are great and are not successful. The movie business is very unpredictable.

“I don’t have any regrets at all. I think there are some great scenes in that movie. And it didn’t get a fair chance. I’ve had studio heads who believe in me say, ‘Just be an actress, you’re an incredible actress, you can be Meryl Streep,’ and I say, ‘I’ve got to be me.’

“I can’t stop singing so people take me seriously as an actress. I’m an actress. You either take me seriously or you don’t. I’m sorry if people think I do too many things. But I would be miserable if I couldn’t do all of these things. I just have to be me.”
