Pop Up: Steven Tyler Influenced Jennifer Lopez To Leave ‘American Idol’
Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez are very close and during Lopez’s chat with ABC News, she revealed that his exit from ‘American Idol’ played a big part in her decision to leave.
We had magic,” she said. “I don’t know, with him gone, it might be a different formula.” In terms of replacements, “I think like Bono, or Bon Jovi, or Mick Jagger.”
Even though she’s leaving the show, she has admitted that it helped her to grow. “It got me back in touch with who I was, watching the contestants and singers,” she said. “That’s why it’s hard to walk away.”
