Jennifer Lopez has declared that her new role as a judge on American Idol feels "very natural".Speaking to MTV News, the 'I'm Real' singer contended that it's a weighty responsibility to provide solid advice to young musicians."It's just been a very natural, fun experience for us, and I think that's what's coming across," she said. "But we're also very serious about what we're doing, and I think people get that too. Like, we're not just phoning it in."The star added: "We actually care about this: we care about the process, we care about music, we care about artists, and you're getting all that… I'm having a good time."Lopez further explained that she has been invigorated by the positive response to American Idol's 10th season."I'm so happy that everybody's loving the show," she said. "I feel very grateful about that, but I really just wanted to be myself, and I think Steven [Tyler] the same thing. We sat down there and it wasn't like, 'What are we going to do?' It was like, 'You be you'. I think that's why they chose us."American Idol airs on Wednesdays and Thursdays on Fox.
