Jennifer Lopez Would Stay With Idol…. If She Gets More $$ Than Britney Spears!

Jennifer Lopez britney

We thought J.Lo had unofficially decided to quit American Idol, BUT turns out there is something that would get her to stay!

Mz. Lopez told Ellen, she wanted to leave so she could to spend more time with her 4-year-year babies. Howeves, a show insider says Jenny has a less adorable reason for leaving: she doesn't want Britney Spears showing her up!

The insider says Mz Lopez doesn't really want to leave the show, she's just playing hardball for a salary bigger than Brit Brits $15 Million.

According to the Idol source:

“J LO and American Idol are striving for headlines, along with it being ‘strictly business,’ she is also for sure wanting more money than Britney Spears to return. She is not signed for next year but nothing is better in Nigel’s eyes than people talking about American Idol and who the judges will be all summer. Look what it did with The X Factor!”


Must it always come down to a mater of money and pride??

Well, J.Lo may just get what she wants. Nigel Lythgoe has made it clear that he reeeeeally wants her back next year.

    Oh for Goodness sake, J Lo never said she was for certain quitting. Anyone with half a brain could figure out she was just looking for more money. Most of the judges do the same thing when their contract comes up. She's worth more then Britney as a judge imo. She gives great opinions on Idol. I don't see Britney coming up with the same constructive critisms or praise that J Lo does.

    What? So… she thinks shes worth $ 15 million? u can play the diva sometimes, but u also gotta face the true… YOU NO BRITNEY!

  5. Gonzo says – reply to this


    She is not worth it. I think she'd rather spend time with her boytoy than her twins. I'm pretty sure they could find some other hasbeen to judge. I hear Mariah is available.

    Re: tasha
    She's ridiculous. Constructive critism???? All she does is pant over the male contestants, giggle like a moron, and make out with her boy toy on what is supposed to be family show …she's got back her career such as it is, time for her to leave.

  7. 7

    Good for her! Britney has not sung a live note in years!

  8. lisbellas says – reply to this


    Re: tasha – you sure you're tuning in for the same show? JLo never gave a constructive critism, she just says "i loved it", "you nailed it", "i love your voice"… i never really saw her telling the contestants to sing in a different way, change the style nor they were pitchy…cmon, shes not a real musician

    Re: Toy4Paco – Neither has Jlo! I seen her performance on american idol.

  10. marru73 says – reply to this


    Re: tasha – please that lady does not give good opinions all she says is that the performance was great but she never tells the contestant what they need to work and theres a reason for that she CAN NOT sing to save her life. She does not deserve to get more money than Britney Spears, Britney is a far better performer than Jennifer Lopez. shes only in the media because of her relationship with Casper Smart who is also a nobody

  11. 11

    Jennifer Lopez is on a show with a richer history and higher ratings than US X Factor. Not only that, she is definitely worth more than Britney Spears. I mean come on. Neither of them can sing well but if I had to say who was the better singer today it's JLO and the better performer today is JLO. Britney has lost her shine. Lip syncing and being a back up dancer to your own back up dancers at your own concert does not make you a star or a person in a position to judge others based on their voice and stage presence. That is why I'm shocked Britney is even going to be a judge on the US X Factor.

  12. 12

    She's just greedy…
    nothing more than a non talented egocentric lardass.

  13. 13

    If they were on the same show or even the same network i could understand but their NOT!!! So

  14. 14

    She should just suck it up

  15. manny says – reply to this


    Please. Jlo is a DIVA. Thats the thing I always loved about Britney. She has all the money in the world and she never lets it get to her head. Britney is worth 15m. Jlo…ISNT! She's jealous and has always been jealous of Britney and her fame.

  16. Cejee says – reply to this


    JLO Always says the same thing. It is ridiculous. Britney Spears is worth 15 million. JLO is worth the about 10 million she gets, as the same Christina gets on the voice. Britney will bring viewers SO much more than those two combined. She will certainly provide better feedback than Jennifer. To say she wanted her salary matched is one thing, to say more than is beyond stupid.

  17. 17

    neither one of them is worth that much. 2 mill maybe..

  18. Bryank says – reply to this


    Let's see…. who's the bigger selling recording artist?!! Britney!! 7 platinum albums!! 6 #1 albums….and countless singles …. Britney is the bigger recording artist here… jenny lo is just a brand…. Britney's the corporation.

    Re: JoshHarlow – "Jennifer Lopez is on a show with a richer history and higher ratings than US X Factor." exactly. american idol was already huge success before j lo, and it will be a huge success after j lo. x factor needs a huge star like britney to get the publics interest.

    celebrities are so freaking full of themselves….i mean, seriously!!!

  21. jett7060 says – reply to this


    Your posting yesterday said "it's official". Well, guess what? This story over her leaving the show never WAS official. Yet another stellar job by you!

  22. 22

    Re: JoshHarlow – Oh please if Britney had lost her shine as u say her last album would have not been number 1 and spawned 3 top 10 hits! And Britney is worth more then jlo… Britney has sold more albums Britney has soldout more arenas and she was on star search,the mickey mouse club, she done commercials britney has already been her and done that she is qualified to do this job. You dont get on the mickey mouse club if you are not talented. Britney has worked her way to the top nothing was given to her. Quote "Lip syncing and being a back up dancer to your own back up dancers at your own concert does not make you a star or a person in a position to judge others based on their voice and stage presence". Like Jlo,katy,rihanna,madonna,janet and the list goes on does the same. And to give you the 411 Britney did sing live on her Femme Fatale tour thats a fact! Believe the ratings will be through the roof with britney on xfactor! She could sit there eating cheetoes and enjoying a Fanta people would still watch!

  23. 23

    Britney is Britney, that's all I can say.

  24. JGL says – reply to this


    She doesn't deserve it, Britney Spears (who I don't think will be that good of a judge), has always been way more successful in the music industry. Also she is one of the worst judges I hope they just replace her

  25. 25

    Oh bitch please, Britney is an icon, you are a wanna be singer and dancer, and just remember ( as we havent), your career was in the toilet till you married Marc and got idol. So get back to your child groom and shut the heck up.

  29. Chyna Doll says – reply to this


    BRITNEY IS THE WORLD'S BIGGEST female POP PHENOMENONS EVER!!! JLo has NEVER and WILL NEVER achieve what BRITNEY has in music. BRITNEY SPEARS IS THE DAMN DEFINITION OF POP MUSIC!!!!!!!!!!! BRIT will ALWAYS be relevant to POP music!!! JLo is a jack of all trades. She has yet to master none!!!

  37. Godney says – reply to this


    Re: Khloehearts757 – She made 20 mil in total of two season you MORON!!!

  38. Joanna says – reply to this


    Wow, she is such an egotistical diva! She is NOT the star that Britney is. I don't hear anyone referring to JLo as a "pop icon" who revolutionized music. She needs to check her ego at the door! Just be happy that u went on Idol & got a hit single again..

  39. 39

    Greedy has-been!! The karma will be beautiful.

    Re: Godney – No she made $20 million last season. I can read and hear. They were just talking about her on tv yesterday. The only moron around here is you by having to call people names behind your sacred computer screen. If you had nothing positive to say, don't comment my replies.

  41. Godney says – reply to this

  44. 44

    J Lo looks old and sooooooo UGLY!!!!!! lol

  45. nay says – reply to this


    Re: lisbellas – u obviously have not seen her live in the past few years!! as most of what she does is live now!!!

  46. Shon says – reply to this


    I'ts Britney Freakin' Spears for god sake, of course she's gonna get paid higher. A lot of people including me are gonna watch x-factor just cause of Britney, she'll be the one bringing in the ratings next season. I don't see that happening for JLO

  47. 47

    Re: JoshHarlow – It only has richer history b/c it's been out for years and season after season; Xfactor has just been out for one season. What a dumb comment. Did you really say JLO is a better entertainer? LOL..explain that to 180+ million albums sold; 6 #1 albums; 9 albums total, soldout world-wide concert tours…Britney has outsold and out performed JLO 20-1…JLO is no where near the pop icon as Britney…Britney has 8 successful perfume lines and has been named to Forbes Best list 5 times, including this year. JLO can't even sell-out concert venues, and Brit has done it for 4 separate tour/albums, including most recently Femme Fatale, where she added 15 more legs to North American and European tour.

    Lardass?! Riggggghhhht. Jenifer Lopez? No. That girl is lookin good!

  49. lps says – reply to this


    what a diva. Britney Spears is a pop star and Jlo is a dancer who acts and sometimes sings (poorly). She needs a reality check.

    Re: Godney – Try doing your research. Ignorance is not bliss.

  51. 51

    Re: Godney – Look up huffington post, ok magazine, the Hollywood gossiper, tv.com. If I could post links I would. There is even a video on YouTube from a news source youtube.com/watch?v=t3LK_z_JEfg

  52. Masterpiece says – reply to this


    Britney is a Pop Icon and a bigger and a more successful superstar than J.Lo. J.Lo shouldn't get paid more than Britney.

    She is no Britney!

  53. 53

    Pay someone credible, articulate and no-nonsense to judge AI. Not Jennifer who thinks all performances are either "crazy" or "amazing," or give her "goosies" or make her "speechless."

  54. Sarah says – reply to this


    Umm Jennifer already get's paid more than Britney Spears lol! She made 12 million the first year and 20 million the second year!
