Jennifer Lopez not sure if she wants to return to Idol
Jennifer Lopez isn't sure if she'll come back for a third season of "American Idol," but the big cheese on the show says he wants her back in the worst way.
"A.I." EP Nigel Lythgoe tells TMZ, "We want her back. I want her back." Nigel is reacting to Lopez' comment on "Ellen," saying, "I don't know if I can go for a third year. I miss doing other things. It really does lock you down."
Nigel says, "I know how much she loves doing the show and how much she cares for the kids." That said, Nigel adds, "It's a business. She has to weigh everything. I know she's gotten lots of offers to do movies and other things."
Ever the optimist, Nigel says by saying she "doesn't know" if she'll come back, it's classic negotiations, which means the door is open. Welcome to Hollywood.
I think two seasons is enough. It got her name back out there which was the whole reason for doing it anyway.
I want her to do other things (specifically more films). Idol ties her down for a good 3 months, time that could be spent on a film instead.
She said the same thing last year before they offered her more money.
+1 more $$$ please, she has nothing else to do, maybe another album in 2013?
Here for:Madonna - Lady Gaga - Britney - Xtina - Rihanna - Lana del Rey - Coldplay - Kylie Minogue - U2 - Marvel - DC - Star Wars - Stephen King - John Katzenbach - Movies - Desperate Houswives - Fringe - History - Xbox 360 - Nokia - Volleyball
The thing I don't like about Idol (which she's mentioned as well) is the fact that once Idol's season begins, she's basically STUCK doing that and has no time to do anything else. I will say that it is a great platform for her music but it can be that even w/o her being a judge. I'm sure she'd be allowed to perform on the show whether she's a judge or not.
With that said, I'm not against the idea of her returning to Idol nor am I the biggest fan of her doing it. Whatever she decides is fine with me though.
I wonder if the shows ratings would take a hit if she left though. It sure seems like it.
On one hand, she's had 2 hit singles thanks to the show. On the other hand, she's great during auditions/Hollywood week, but is TERRIBLE on the live shows.
I wouldn't mind someone else.
Firstly, OTF has hit number ones on iTunes in many countries and #2 on US iTunes with OUT American Idol and then #1 on US iTunes after the video premiere only on Idol.
IIY and Dance Again are moderate hits so again American Idol did nothing for her music and you know it, it surely helped her but not musically.
Secondly, she's doing a great job in everything, that's why THEY want her for another season, so your opinion is irrelevant.
