Jennifer Lopez was on Today this morning to talk about Ice Age 3, and the anchor took the chance to ask her if she plans to return to American Idol for another season. You can tell she is wishy washy about her decision as she told Natalie Morales, “I know everybody wants that definite ‘yes’ or ‘no,’ and … all I can let you in on is my own thought process with it, because that’s where I truly am. And the truth is, I love everybody. I love all the guys on the show. I love the family that’s there. Like I said, I’ve just enjoyed it so much. But I am thinking that maybe it’s time for me to go and do other things that I really love to do.”
Is this her way of saying she is ready to move on or is it a way for her to get more money out of Fox? Over the last week there have been rumors that the Fox singing competition is looking for new judges to replace Steven Tyler and/or Randy Jackson and/or J-Lo. But when it comes to the first two names, it seems like the network wants them replaced and they will do anything to keep J-Lo. So could she be using the press for the animated movie as a ploy to get more for her to return. I mean I can see her thinking that she is worth twice as much Britney Spears and not just $5 million more than her.
Here’s my thoughts if she is whining about taking a break from doing some of the things she enjoys to make $20 million for 6 months of work, then she should be grateful that she has all that money. So grateful that she gives it to charity. When was the last time you heard that one of these judges/hosts of these reality shows give money to charity? With all of their millions in this economy, it would be nice if they spread the wealth. J-Lo is from The Bronx, when was the last time she gave something back. I mean we all know she didn’t even go back for the Fiat commercial. Seriously what do they do with all of that money because you can’t take it with you.
