Jennifer Lopez on American Idol: Time to Go

by at . Comments

Expect those American Idol judging rumors to only grow louder now.

Appearing this morning on The Today Show, Jennifer Lopez was asked about her status on the Fox smash and told Natalie Morales:

"I love everybody, I love the guys [Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler and host Ryan Seacrest], but I am thinking it's time for me to go and do other things I love to do like films."

This isn't the first time that J. Lo has hinted at a departure, though it was seen as a contract negotiation a year ago.

However, following a disappointing ratings season, producers may want to go in a wholly different direction on Season 12. Potential replacement, according to recent chatter, include Adam Lambert, Miley Cyrus... and Charlie Sheen?
