Jennifer Lopez of American Idol is just full of surprises these days. Last week the triple threat showed off her new boy toy on the elimination show, and now she is claiming that she may not return to Idol next season! Say what? Yep, apparently J-LO feels too “locked down” by the show. More after the jump…
That’s right, American Idol may very well be looking for another judge next season. Jennifer Lopez recently spoke with Ellen DeGeneres, and when asked about returning to Idol next season, J-LO replied: “I don’t know. I enjoy it. I really do enjoy it. This is my second year. I don’t know if I can go for a third year. I miss doing other things. It really does lock you down.”
Okay, but what’s the big deal about locked down when you are part of the biggest singing show on television? We know what you are all thinking – Casper Smart! But, J-LO revealed that it is not her love life that may prevent her from returning, adding that it is all about her twins: “Now they’re getting more mobile. They’re about to go to school. I don’t know, I just don’t know.” Wait a minute, at 4 years old, haven’t they been mobile for the last three years?
We can only assume that Jennifer will get less time with the kids as they head off to school, along with split custody, which is most likely a huge factor weighing on her mind. J-LO has not made a decision yet, so we’ll have to wait for her to officially announce whether or not she will return.
Do you think Jennifer Lopez should return next season to American Idol? Or would you rather see someone else on the panel with Randy and Steven? Comment and share your thoughts with us below!
