Taylor Swift created a sensation at the close of her RED Tour in Los Angeles last month by inviting special guest Jennifer Lopez on stage to sing J. Lo's 2002 hit "Jenny From The Block." The collab was hot; the web got even hotter this week when rumors swirled that Swift and Lopez were actually going to join forces for a track on Lopez's new album, due out early 2014.
Alas, fun as it sounds, the two ladies apparently aren't meeting in the recording studio anytime soon. Swift told OMG! Insider Monday night in Toronto that it's all news to her.
"I've heard those rumors," she noted, adding, "I just read them on the Internet, and that's the first I've heard of them."
But, for those fans who are disappointed at the idea of Swift and Lopez never ever getting back together (like, ever), Swift didn't completely dismiss the notion of working with the "On The Floor" hitmaker. She said that the two haven't discussed it; however, "She has my number, and I never say never."
Both stars will be hard-pressed to find time to call and chat anytime soon. Lopez will be returning to "American Idol" at the top of the year to judge the 13th season of the series, along with Keith Urban and the newly hired Harry Connick, Jr. She judged the competition in its 10th and 11th seasons, taking a break in Season 12. Meanwhile, Swift is reportedly gearing up to start work on new music; a process she describes as all-encompassing: "I drive myself crazy."
