Jennifer Lopez May Leave “American Idol”
Jennifer Lopez, who just topped the list of Forbes’ Most Powerful Celebrities for 2012, may be leaving the judges’ table at American Idol. Fox News reports that the 42 year-old singer and actress told Ellen Degeneres that she wants to spend more time with her children, Max and Emme.
“I miss doing other things,” J-Lo said. “It really does lock you down, which was nice the first year with the babies being three and four. Now they are going to school. I just don’t know.” She added, “[But,] I really do enjoy it.”
A source close to her claims, “She’s just too busy.”
J-Lo explained more at the premiere of her new movie What to Expect When You’re Expecting: “It is just like any working mom’s dilemma,” she said of being a busy mom. “It’s tough. It’s a balancing act. You put them first and then you have all these other things that you have to do, that you have to give your time to as well, and you have to make sure that they’re OK in the process.”
Who should replace Jennifer on Idol? Since Britney Spears and Demi Lovato have just signed on to be X-Factor judges, Idol needs to land a big music star to keep up. But with The Voice, maybe Idol is past its prime…
