Jennifer Lopez has said adios to American Idol. Our Leo girl, after resurrecting her career, has decided she’s way too busy to judge wannabe singers, for $20 million a year. Today, she broke the sad news to Ryan Seacrest.

She says, “I really was dreading this phone call with you,” she told him. “I honestly feel like the time has come that I have to get back to doing the other things that I do that I’ve put kind of on hold because I love ‘Idol’ so much.”

Astrologically speaking, Astrochicks thinks JLo will regret leaving her cushy gig. In 2013, Lopez will experience a difficult transit period, when Saturn in Scorpio will square her Sun in Leo. This particular aspect is one of the more challenging transits to deal with. It can represent a forced turning point where she will feel pressured and burdened. Maybe her star will fade again?

Lets face it, American Idol was easy money and helped Lopez rebuild her brand. Now, Astrochicks thinks she will regret her decision, after Mariah Carey takes her spot. Yes, Jennifer is one sexy mama, but she’s no Mariah, when it comes to singing. That girl knows her stuff. When it comes to love, we think JLo will split from Casper Smart as well. He’s a kid, she’s a cougar mama, end of story.

For American Idol, we’re sad to see Steven Tyler an Aries rocker go, but change can be good. The two new judges are rumored to be Mariah Carey and Adam Lamber. Will Randy Jackson remain the third judge? Maybe not. Possibly, he will be replaced by an industry heavy weight like P. Diddy or Baby Face.

In the end, we think the sun is setting on American Idol. It’s had a good run, now it’s time to let X Factor shine. Simon Cowell will reclaim his throne of reality TV. Stay tuned.
