Jennifer Lopez on Returning to 'Idol' Next Year: 'I Don't Know'
By Len Brown
After nearly a decade, Mary Hart and Jennifer Lopez met once again, this time on the "American Idol" stage, a place which was off-limits to the press until this special sit down occurred.
Much has changed with "Jenny from the block," having released a fragrance, clothing line, multiple albums and starring in big movies since 2002. However, the singer admitted that motherhood was probably her biggest transition.
"When you have kids, your whole mind changes," Jennifer stated. "Every mom knows this. You understand what it is to love something more than yourself."
As the focus shifted away from family life to her career, where the "American Idol" judge claims she's at the point where touring is finally an option, Jennifer kept things open when asked if she would remain a judge on the hit reality series. "I don't know," she said with a nervous laugh. "There's so many things going on, I just don't know what's going to happen. There's a lot of amazing opportunities."
