The morning after Fox announced Steven Tyler was done with “American Idol,” Jennifer Lopez went on Ryan Seacrest’s horrible radio show Friday to say she felt it was time for her to move on as well.
“She remained open to returning for the first episode of the show's next season,” related The Wrap’s Tim Molloy. “But she said her children and career goals didn't leave her time to return full time.”
"Something has to give, and that's, I think, where I am right now," she told Seacrest. "I honestly feel like the time has come that I have to get back to doing the other the things that I have to do, that I've put kind of on hold because I love 'Idol' so much."
Word is Randy Jackson’s management client Mariah Carey could be joining the judging panel this autumn.
