Jennifer Lopez on American Idol — Career Suicide?
Deadline reports that her career is actually in the toilet, so she was courting American Idol for the opportunity. Her recent film, The Back-Up Plan, tanked at the Box Office, and her record label dropped her. So perhaps she isn’t as relevant as I like to think she is, and this is the boost she needs. I suppose we’ll have to wait and see.When I heard Jennifer Lopez was joining the American Idol judging table, my furrowed brow caused a permanent dent in my forehead. What on earth is she thinking? I know that American Idol has gained some serious respect and big names over the years, but judging a reality competition is where a star goes to die. It is only good to launch an unknown’s career, but for someone that is already famous, it’s inevitably a step backward. When Paula joined, she was a well-liked has-been that people wanted to see in front of the camera again. She won a Grammy during her once-upon-a-time success, and was lovable train-wreck. But Jennifer Lopez is still too relevant to make this move.
