Famous singer and talent show judge Jennifer Lopez left ‘American Idol’ in order to concentrate on her acting. Last week, Lopez declared she will not return, but said that she had an ”amazing run” on the series.
Jennifer Lopez said her decision to quit the reality show was stimulated by a renewed interest in film work
”I do miss doing films. I feel like the last two years with ‘American Idol’, I’ve really, really focused on, you know, my music.
”It was all kind of very synergistic, it worked really well together.”
‘[Movie work] is something that I really loved, it’s how I kind of started in this business, and it doesn’t leave you. I am an actress, I need to do that, too.”
The ‘On the Floor’ singer also said this week that Steven Tyler’s decision to leave ‘American Idol’ influenced her own departure.
”We had magic. I don’t know, with him gone, it might be a different formula.”
