Jennifer Lopez

I Might Return to 'Idol'

... I Might Not

Jennifer Lopez is telling friends ... she HAS NOT made up her mind on her future with "American Idol" ... and WILL NOT make a decision until after she finishes her current concert tour with Enrique Iglesias.

There are reports Jennifer has already informed producers she's a no-go to return to the judge's table next season ... but sources close to J.Lo tell us the reports are absolutely not true.

We're told Jennifer wants to "see where things are in her life" when the concert ends.

Translation: If Jen's popularity is UP after the tour and she has more options, she's more likely to bounce off the show. If she's not ... "Idol" ain't a bad fallback gig.

It wouldn't be the first time J.Lo waited 'til the last minute -- last year, she held out until late August and finally gave in when producers reportedly agreed to fork over $20 mil for a 1-year deal.

update_bar
Lopez appeared on the "Today" show this morning ... and said she's "torn" about the decision ... but notes, "I think it’s time for me to go.”

Seriously, who the hell cares if this bitch is gonna stay or go on Idol. She only is in it for the money, let's face it. She should just hang out with the other old fat ass Kim trashian, and go and hang themselves. AGAIN< NOBODY CARES....She's a money grabbing, greedy hoe. PERIOD>>>>>>

it's obscene to be paying this woman 20 million dollars to sit at a table and say "it's crazy!" over and over.

Get rid of her, it would be awesome to have Charlie Sheen! Can you imagine the hilarity that would ensue between Charlie and Steven Tyler?? Now that would be good tv.

I swear... when it comes to American Idol, ALL I hear is about the judges dropping out or joining in. What's ****in' singing? Drama from the judges!

No problem...there are dozens of capable peopele who can do what the judges did. The show gives the judges career a shot in the arm. It resurrected JLO and Tyler careers. They should have paid the shows producers to bejudges. It's only a television show. They are not worth what they were paid to start with!

She signed on for the gig so she could get people talking about her again and boost her career. Well, that and the obscene amount of money they offered her. She cared about performing on the A.I. stage and staging her comeback. She didn't care about the people competing. If she thinks she has made a comeback then why would she waste her time on Idol when she could be lip synching and gyrating to God awful music written by someone else?
