Jennifer Lopez Talks Leaving ‘American Idol’: ‘Maybe It’s Time For Me To Go’

Published: Thursday 12th Jul 2012 by Rashad

As headlines were rocked today with news that ‘Walk This Way’ rocker Steven Tyler (Aerosmith) won’t be finding his way back to the American Idol judging panel next season, ‘Dance Again’ diva Jennifer Lopez once again reignites rumors she may be walking as well.

Despite enjoying a hefty $20 million dollar payout for her participation in ‘Idol’s’ last season, the media mogul – who took to ‘The Today Show’ today in support of her latest film ‘Ice Age: Contintental Drift’ – was quizzed on her world tour, upcoming ventures, and plans to return to the reality talent show.

Find out what she shared and also catch her dance up a storm in this new behind the scenes footage from her Enrique Iglesias-assisted world tour after the jump:

    I think is a good idea to leave Idol after two seasons, she is so lovely, i don’t know why people hate her, hard working woman, great dancer, a good actress, she’s a triple threat.

      ‘OTF’ is the biggest selling hit of her career and it was released last year, so I don’t see how she’s a has been.

    I wish Christina would utter those words about the voice so she can finish her f****** album and quit making her fans wait.

    F*** THIS H**.

    J.Lo did the SAME S*** LAST YEAR…. then what did the b**** do? She SIGNED ON ONCE HER H** ASS SAW THEM $$$ SIGNS.

    F*** this b****!

    She used American Idol to give her LAME ASS CAREER a boost.

    now that she found a 16 year old F***** d*** to slob on and spend all her money on, she wants to do other things.

    B**** Here is some advice.

    Take care of your F****** CHILDREN.
    Every time I see you your b**** ass is with that damn f***** boyfriend.

    TAKE SOME TIME OUT AND RAISE THE TWINS THAT CAME OUT OF YOUR P****!

      You said take care of your kids:

      Idol is a great pay check, therefore helping her pay to take care of her kids.

      Secondly, she had a C-section, so her twins did not “come out of her p****”

    Real talk:

    Nobody was checking for her before she got on the show.

    She got on Idol, got a TON of commercials and was relevant again.

    Now she wants to bounce like the world is hungry for some J.Lo, her album did terribly for as much as she pushed it and outside that one song with Pitbull there was no real hits.

    She needs to hop of the 20 something’s d*** and get her head right. If she leaves the show, she vanishes from public sight.

    And out of sight…

    Nope nope nope nope. Bad decision, J.Lo.
    She hasn’t even reestablished a core audience yet. Some of her singles did well because they rode the tidal wave of overproduced dance music; her subsequent albums did terribly. If her music wasn’t doing all that well when she was on television every damn week, how will it do when she leaves? Well when she does, the American Idol audience won’t follow.
    She should milk this “in negotiation” period as long as she can and squeeze in all her planned projects within this time because I see her future like a falling row of dominoes.

    She’s so adorable. She comes across as a very relatable and down on earth person when she interviews. That said, it would be a pure catastrophe if she decided to leave ‘Idol’. She has made an amazing comeback on an international level, so she can maintain the momentum, but as far as the States are concerned, she needs the exposure to sell her music. Radio are still not eating her music up, so she needs iTunes sales and ‘Idol’ can ensure those.

      Thanks for stating opinions, and not in a hateful way like most of the other commenters above^ ! ! !

      🙂

    I really enjoy Jennifer Lopez on Idol.

    Whatever you make think of her, hate her, love her… she has a great personality for television. She makes you want to like her/want to know her.

    So people will regardless hate on her. Since Steven left, I sorta think Jenny should leave too, but then I also think it is a great platform for her. So its a tricky one for me.

    Regardless, I DO enjoy seeing her week after week on American Idol! ! !

    Do y’all realise that J-LO is currently the biggest celebrity??

    Remember she’s still #1 on Forbes?

  14. That B*tch July 13, 2012
