Why is Jennifer Lopez Thinking About Quitting American Idol?

Jennifer Lopez Leaving American Idol?

Jennifer Lopez dropped a bomb on the Today Show on Thursday morning. When discussing her role as one of the judges of American Idol J-Lo confessed,  “I am thinking that it’s time for me to go.”

Why would Jennifer Lopez leave such a lucrative and high profile gig?

Because she is so damn busy! Not only is she currently on tour with Enrique Iglesias  but she has her 4-year-old twins Max and Emme who haven’t had as much time with mom since she’s been pulled in different direction.

“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,” Lopez said. “It’s a heartbreaking decision if I have to go.”

But she did use the word “if” not “when,” so this may just be a way to use the press in contract negotiations. But she went on to say, “Little by little I am … 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.”
