“American Idol” judge Jennifer Lopez is unsure as to whether or not she will be making her return to the show next season. When speaking with Ellen DeGeneres, she hinted that she may not return to the show but did say that she does enjoy it.
When talking to Ellen, Jennifer said, “I enjoy it. I really do enjoy it. Now this is my second year. I don’t know if I can go for a third year. It really does lock you down.”
Does it sound like someone is already in contract negotiations for the show’s twelfth season? It sounds to us as if she’s trying to play hard to get in order to get a good deal for re-upping her contract next season. What do you think?
She spoke of her children, Max and Emme, saying, “Now they’re getting mobile. They’re about to go to school. I just don’t know. I don’t know.”
In a separate interview, she was asked to comment on the new “X Factor” judges, Britney Spears and Demi Lovato. She revealed, “They’re both more than capable to handle it. I think they’ll have a good time. It’s fun – working with the singers and doing your thing and knowing what you’re talking about from experience and they both have that.”
She added, “You don’t have to be tough. There’s not one way to do that, reality TV, and those competition shows are about being yourself, it’s about being your best self and I think that’s the most important thing.”
Will Jennifer return for the show next season? A source close to the judge and singer says that it’s not likely. The spy revealed, “Fox really wants to keep her, and who knows what could happen if they threw an obscene amount of money at Jennifer in order to convince her to say.”
A close pal of Jennifer’s said, “Jennifer just needs more down time..more family time.”
