Is Jennifer Lopez Really Leaving American Idol? Her Confusing New Interview

By Radar Staff

Jennifer Lopez has already confirmed she’s leaving American Idol, but in a rather confusing new interview with Good Morning America‘s Amy Robach Monday, the A-list diva demurred at completely cutting ties with the Fox show that helped resurrect her career.

“I have decided to move on,” J.Lo told Robach in an interview conducted in Montreal, where she’s currently on tour with Enrique Iglesias, who was seated beside her through the chat.

Robach said, “I feel like there’s a but coming…”

“I love them, they love me, and it’s hard when I feel like I should move on,” J.Lo said. “I don’t know, I don’t know if it’s even done yet … I know that I’m moving on.”

The Wedding Planner star said her two-year stint on the show got her back in touch with who she is.

“The contestants and the singers … and that’s why it’s hard to walk way,” Lopez explained.

Last Friday, she told host Ryan Seacrest on his radio show she feels “like the time has come that I have to get back to doing the other things that I do that I’ve put kind of on hold because I love Idol so much.”

As we previously reported, both J.Lo and Steven Tyler announced they were leaving the show last week, tentatively leaving Randy Jackson as the only remaining judge when the show returns for its 12th season in January.

While J.Lo predicted the next judges could be any number of big name rock stars — “Bono, Bon Jovi, Mick Jagger,” she said — others have speculated Mariah Carey and/or Adam Lambert could be possible replacements. Past judges on the show include Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, songwriter Kara DioGuardi and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres.
