Has Jennifer Lopez Really Made a Decision to Leave 'American Idol'?
Just when you thought it was official that Jennifer Lopez was done with American Idol... think again.
The reality show judge told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show on Friday — just one day after Steven Tyler announced he was leaving — that she "honestly felt the time has come that I have to get back to doing the other things that I do, that I've put on hold because I love Idol so much."
Jennifer continued, "I have a lot of other responsibilities and... I could just do Idol for the rest of my life, but that would be giving up a bunch of other things and I just feel like we had an amazing run."
But now comes an interview with ABC News that sounds just a little confusing. ABC sat down with J.Lo in Montreal on Sunday, while she's touring with with Enrique Iglesias, where she said, "I have decided to move on. I love them, they love me. It's hard when I feel that I should move on. I don't know that's it even done yet. I feel like I am moving on."
Wait, wait. She doesn't know if it is done yet? Could this be a negotiating strategy?
The singer will always appreciate that "it got me back in touch with who I was. That is why it is hard to walk away."
But it seems that Steven leaving also factors into her decision, "We had a little bit of magic. With him gone, it will be a different formula," says Jennifer.
Maybe Enrique can help sway her: "I wouldn't be a good judge. You do a good job, you should stay," he said.
Well, Jennifer. Will you change your mind?
