Jennifer Lopez: American Idol Covers 'Hollywood Reporter'

American Idol judges Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler and host Ryan Seacrest take the cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s latest issue.

Creator Simon Fuller, the show’s producers, Ryan, and Randy gave the magazine a never-before-seen look at what happened behind the scenes last year when Simon Cowell announced he was leaving – and how they had to assemble a new judges’ table.

“There are a lot of preconceived thoughts about Steven and Jennifer. They’re known as these icons – but not people. Jennifer was always loved, but is she a diva? I think she was quite polarizing prior to Idol, but as we got to know her, we got to see the sensitive, funny, compassionate, smart side. Then it’s, like, ‘Hey, she’s kind of cool,” said Simon F..

Ryan recalled the first time he sat down with Steven, J. Lo, and Randy: “It was the four of us – no agents, no spouses, nobody else – and top secret. And within the first 12 minutes of us sitting in my living room, we could all tell that this was going to be fun.”
