Jennifer called into On Air with Ryan Seacrest earlier today to discuss the release of her new film, Ice Age: Continental Drift. Of course, the majority of their conversation revolved around American Idol, and whether or not Jennifer would be back for another season. Jennifer became emotional talking about the difficulty of her decision, saying “It’s really going to be hard for me to go. It’s one of those special things in your life that you just don’t want to walk away from.” But, ultimately, Jennifer has made the decision to move on:
“I honestly feel like the time has come that I have to get back to doing the other things I do that I’ve put, kind of, on hold because I love Idol so much…I have a lot of other responsibilities… and I have to pay attention to that, too[...]I feel like we had an amazing run [...] No matter what you guys need over there, I’m always going to be here[...] I feel there’s that tie there. I just don’t know if I can be there every single day, all the time, like they way it has been the last two years.”
Fox has yet to release a statement. We’ll keep you guys posted!
What do you think of Jennifer’s decision? Sound off on BB.
