Jennifer Lopez is excited to hit the road with Enrique Iglesias (and beau Casper Smart!), but there’s one caveat: will it be too much to tour and keep her stint as an ‘American Idol‘ judge?

When E! Online asked the starlet if she’d be returning to the Fox juggernaut, she wasn’t too quick to give a definitive answer. “I don’t know,” she admitted. “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.”

Lopez revealed that a big factor in her work schedule is her kids. She absolutely adores her three-year-old twins Max and Emme and fears not being able to spend enough time with them if she spreads herself too thin. “It’s the biggest part because I never want to take on too much where they feel cheated in any way, shape or form. So everything kind of has to work,” she said. “When they tell me, ‘You need to make a decision right now,’ I go, ‘OK, let me think about it.’ Then I just say, OK, what are all the factors, what’s the pros and cons and just try to make the best decision for my kids.”

J. to the L-O is currently in the process of requesting a judge’s permission to take her kids out of state for her upcoming tour. The ‘Dance Again’ singer filed paperwork requesting that neither she nor ex Marc Anthony not need written permission to take Max and Emme out of the state of California. Lopez noted in the paperwork that both she and Anthony have upcoming tours outside of California, so this would make bringing the tykes along a lot easier.
