Aerosmith frontman and ‘American Idol‘ judge Steven Tyler was recently asked if Jennifer Lopez would be returning to ‘Idol’ next season. Since he’s on the panel with her, he had some insight.

Or not. When TMZ cameras caught up with Tyler, who was posing with a fan, and asked if J. Lo was coming back, what was Tyler’s answer? “I asked her the other night onstage,” he said. “Her response? ‘I don’t know.'”

At least La Lopez is honest, because that was the same response she gave when asked by the media if she’d be back. “I don’t know,” she admitted to E! Online. “I have some movie things in the works and I have the tour. I love the show and it hurts me to think about not doing it, but I’m just taking it kind of day by day. We’ll see.” Of course, after that, reports circulated that she definitively wasn’t coming back to the show, but she denied those and reiterated that she still isn’t sure what she’s going to do.

Who would Tyler like to see fill her spot if she doesn’t return? His qualifications were pretty simple. “It’s got to be someone that’s into music.” Easy enough, right?
