Jennifer Lopez on 'American Idol': 'I'm Thinking It's Time For Me To Go'

Jennifer Lopez made an appearance on the Today show on Thursday (July 11) via satellite, where she explained her situation regarding next season’s American Idol judging contract.

“I’ve loved it so much. I’ve enjoyed the show so much. I enjoy just the whole process of the show … It’s a tough decision either way, but I have to say there are so many things I do that I put on hold for that,” the 42-year-old entertainer discussed during her interview. “It’s a heartbreaking decision if I have to go.”

“I am thinking that it’s time for me to go,” Jennifer said.

“Little by little I am,” Jennifer said in response to if she’s made up her mind. “All I can let you in on is my own thought process with it because that’s where I truly am … I love everybody, I love all the guys on the show, I love the family that’s there … but I am thinking it’s time for me to go and do other things I love to do,” JLo added.

    Asha Says:

    Bi*ch please. All she is trying to do is hold out for more money. If you don’t want to do it then don’t. If you haven’t noticed Jen, they are looking to replace you anyway.

    Dissappointed in JLO Says:

    Love me some JLO, but she too has become another puppet for the One World Government Crowd..
    She will be campaigning for Obama at the Convention even when unemployment among Hispanics has doubled.

    Obviously she wanted another fat pay raise, and is getting resistance.

    Jeez! How many ways can she say “I’m leaving”????

    Owen Says:

    She can’t judge, she was fake with her emotions, she just used American Idol to relaunch her image. Within days after they announced her a judge, she came out with movies, singles, clothing line, hair product endorsement. Last season had the lowest ratings ever. She just doesn’t know how to connect to the contestants & viewers at home.
    That’s truth.

    I think her life depended on American Idol when the opportunity came along her brand was not highly marketable. But AI worked in her favour, to relaunch her washed up career. Some artists struggle and NEVER succeed a come back. I think her business advisors and manager nailed it against all odds; her age, competition, aging fanbase, evolving music taste, etc. Of course it’s going to be a tough decision to leave AI, it’s like she’s biting the hand that feeds her –WHOLE CAREER

    She’s very impulsive just like spitting out husbands when she has found a better one.

    American Ido needs judges with integrity, no ho’s that live like sl–s.

    She Stinks! Says:

    As I said earlier, she didn’t leave, she was FIRED! Fired, fired, fired, due to bad ratings, her endless self promotions and pathetic judging skills.

    We think its time for you to go too, JHO Bag! Go back to obscurity! Her career will tank, yet again. The problem with her (well, there are many) is she believes all the hype – she thinks she can sing, act and dance – what a delusional untalented low class tacky old b*tch! Time to get out of people’s living rooms, the TRASH has been put out!

    OS Says:

    Idol is still the Number One show on tv.
    The ratings have slipped a bit cause of over saturation. Voice, duets, x factor…

    ewjwv Says:

    Its so obvious she just wants more money to stay!!!! Thats why she keeps saying “I could be doing so much other work than this, making a lot of money that way” Really, American Idol paid her the most money, now they will fire her. They don’t need her anymore & sure know how to spend their money. They’re asking Miley Cyrus to take her spot & Adam Lambert to take Steven Tylers.

    she is repeating. she sounds like someone who is learning english. like not a nativespeaker.

    Jan Says:

    JLO is so FAKE. She wants MORE MONEY$$$$. That is why she is not saying she is leaving for sure.

    californialady1939 Says:

    I’m thinkin’ it’s time for her to go also. There are far too many of the AARP crowd in the spotlight. It’s desperate. When Jennifer goes, she should take the other desperate Jennifer Anniston with her. They should both give the public a break.
