People wonder if the pop star, J-Lo is using her rumored doubt to return to the number one singing contest as a negotiating tactic or if she is really considering a no show on the next season of “American Idol.” On Tuesday, Lopez sputtered a hint that she might not come back for a third season, leaving fans wondering what was going on.
When J-Lo appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show with Cameron Diaz to promote her latest movie, What to Expect When You’re Expecting,” the “Idol” beauty stated that her time on the popular show has been wonderful, but it may be the time for her to do something different.
Telling the host, Ellen, that she really does enjoy the “Idol” contest, although she was not sure what her future is on the show after a second season, not knowing if she can make it a third. Lopez said she misses doing a lot of other things as the show keeps her pinned down, which used to be nice as her twins were smaller, but they are now getting ready to go to school and she can be more mobile. Lopez was not dogmatic about her exit, only planting a seed that is was a possibility.
Jennifer started her first stint on the exciting and highly watched singing contest show in the 2010 season ten along with Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler and is reported to be making twelve million each season. This figure may be at least two million more than Christina Aguilera gets for participating as a judge on “The Voice.” It is also still around $3 million less than Britney Spears will be getting as a new judge on the “X Factor” this fall. When MTV News solicited reps for “American Idol.” they left no comments hanging out for Lopez’s return or non-return to the show.
As she appeared on “Access Hollywood” Monday night, Jennifer Lopez had some good advice for Brittany and Demi Lovato, the other “X Factor” judge. She said it was freaky being on live TV and a great big thing to take on, but believes both of them are perfectly capable of handling the situation with contestants. She goes on to say that because they know what it’s like working the business, they’ll be able to transfer that knowledge and experience into good judging advice.
Lopez goes on to share her feelings that she thinks it is good to root for the good guys in the contest as critics tend to say that she and Steven Tyler are too easy on the “Idol” contestants. Jennifer revealed her stance that you don’t have to be mean and tough as her thoughts are that you don’t have to be one way on those reality shows, but you can be who you really are and that is okay.
Insiders to the situation say that when $20 million is on the line, if there is one thing Jennifer Lopez is better at than singing, it is the business of singing. Rumors say, it is all about the money. We shall see!
