Jennifer Lopez

I Might Not Return to 'Idol'

6/15/2011 5:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Just when "American Idol" seemed stable again ... Jennifer Lopez has announced she's "on the fence" about returning to the show next season ... because she's just so damn busy.

J.Lo explained the whole thing to BBC Radio -- saying, "I haven't been forced to make a decision and I'm glad about that because honestly I'm very on the fence about it."

Lopez added -- "I loved it, but I have a lot of other things happening, and it's going to come down to me making a choice of what I want to do for the next year."

One of those "other things" J.Lo is working on is her OWN singing competition show with hubby Marc Anthony -- called "Que 'Viva!: The Chosen". The show will focus on undiscovered vocal talent in Latin America.

FYI -- J.Lo reportedly made $12 MILLION for her role as a judge on AI this season.

She's only busy due to her exposure on AI...ingrate! Her image and career was fading prior to AI. She'll see how fast people will turn on her...not a good idea JLO!

Trump got it right. Got lots of Money and introduced herself to the public again....another user. I guess AI can be useful for those who need to get back in spotlight.

No Surprise    

If I were JLO, I would continue my mark on AI and raise my twins so that they will have a good life instead of worrying about business deals. Losers, only thinking about money and fame.

Nice 1 Jen! Idol is the only reason you've got any media attention in the past 5 years... Just take it for granted and fade back into obscurity... You're new single was awful, btw.

Thanks American Idol for paying her to boost her sagging career. I'm tired of seeing her on so many TV commercials, magazines & TV talks shows. Riding her coattails is the dead fly, Marc Anthony. Now she's stealing the concept. I did no*****ch American Idol this year because she was on.
