Jennifer Lopez May Not Return to American Idol

In a recent interview on Ellen alongside Cameron Diaz in support of their forthcoming film, What to Expect When You’re Expecting, Jenny from the Block hinted at some surprising news. After two years of serving as a judge on the hit show American Idol, Lopez seems uncertain whether or not she will be able to go for round three.

“Now 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, which was nice the first year with the babies being three, but now they’re getting more mobile, they’re about to go into school … So I just don’t know.”

Since season 10, Lopez has worked alongside Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson. What do you think about this announcement? Is it time for J.Lo to move on to other projects or is American Idol a safe place for her to remain? Let us know in the comment section below!
