J.LO on American Idol….hmmm..sure.
This is one move I don’t think anyone saw coming. Earlier yesterday, to no one’s surprise, Ellen DeGeneres announced she was leaving “American Idol” after only one year as a judge. The big surprise though was who was announced to replace Ellen….the one…the only…Jennifer Lopez. No this is not a joke. Word is that J. Lo’s long-time manager Benny Medina orchestrated the deal over a month ago pushing J. Lo’s overwhelming success in the music industry and one who can identify and cultivate talent. Of course many could argue about this claim since J. Lo herself was recently dropped by her Sony Epic Records label. Regardless, congrats to J. Lo on landing one of the most coveted roles in the entertainment industry. The fact of the matter is, I really don’t care about American Idol. What I do care about is how I want to be that seat in the picture right now.
