In a recent interview with MTV, Jennifer Lopez shares the scoop on why she is having fun with her new Idol gig. Keep reading for more details!
American Idol on FOX’s decision to add Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler as judges seems to be getting mixed reviews. Despite the fact that she was slammed for not sticking up for the Bronx, Jennifer Lopez tells MTV that she is having fun and her plan is to stay relaxed and be herself. Jennifer goes on to share “I’m so happy that everybody’s loving the show. I feel very grateful about that, but I really just wanted to be myself, and I think Steven the same thing. It’s just been a very natural, fun experience for us, and I think that’s what’s coming across.”
Now, while she may be having fun judging the hopefuls on American Idol, Jennifer also shares that she takes it very seriously as well as she says that both she and Steven Tyler “actually care about this, we care about the process, we care about music, we care about artists, and you’re getting all that.” Whether you love her or hate her on the panel, she thinks that the show made the right decision in asking both she and Steven as she goes on “They knew that he was a good person and I was a good person. He was an interesting person. I had my things about me that they felt were interesting. They knew what they were doing. That’s why they came to us.” What do you think about Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler so far? Comment and share your thoughts with us, we’d love to hear them!
