I don't think it's by any means an end to my career.
My gut and intuition told me it wasn't time to do this.
It is a reality show... this show is never without drama.
I had to focus on some personal areas in my life with the little bit of privacy that I have.
In all honesty, I'm not able to talk about contracts. It's nothing with 'American Idol' in particular, it's just things I really need to take care of in my life.
