Jenny from the Block was put on the spot this week when asked whether or not she plans to come back as a judge on American Idol next season.

"You know, this is the question of the hour," Jennifer Lopez said during an appearance on a BBC Radio program in London on Tuesday. 

Her answer, if you can really call it that, was...

"I don't know," she said. "I haven't been forced to make a decision and I'm glad about that because honestly I'm very on the fence about it."

Lopez went on to say that part of the reason why she hasn't made up her mind yet stems from the fact that she's got quite a bit on her plate at the moment. You know, things like a hit single ("On the Floor"), a new perfume, a Latin competition show that she's working on with her hubby Marc Anthony and, of course, having to be the most beautiful woman in the world.

"I had an amazing time doing it and I loved it, but I have a lot of other things happening, and it's going to come down to me making a choice of what I want to do for the next year and we're not really at the breaking point of 'You have to make a decision right now!'" Lopez said. "I'm just really enjoying the time of just waiting and seeing."

But waiting and seeing for what exactly? Might it also have something to do with, say, money?

While Lopez reportedly earned $12 million to sit at the judges' table this year, it's quite possible she's simply looking to land a bigger paycheck for season 11. (Hey, it worked for Simon Cowell, who wound up banking more than $30 million a cycle during his Idol heyday.)

What say you? Are you hoping Lopez is lured back for another go-around? And does she deserve a raise?
