L.A. said he needs to get back to business as the chairman and CEO of Epic Records.
“It was a nice break, it was a nice departure from what I’ve done for the past 20 years, but now I gotta go back to work,” he said.
The exiting reality show judge said he needs to focus on his musical performers.
“I have a huge responsibility to a roster of artists and it’s kind of time for me to stop doing the ‘me’ show,” he said.

Looking back on his two-season tenure, which is about to wrap up, L.A. said he has no regrets.
“It was fun! I had a great time,”
And as he leaves, L.A. said he has some knowledge he can apply to his business.
With a seat about to become vacant on the FOX reality show, L.A. offered his suggestion on who should fill the spot.
“You know who I would love to see take it, and by the way I have nothing to do with it, but my choice would be like Jon Bon Jovi,” he said. “That’s who I would pick.”
L.A. also said he could be back somewhere down the line.
“I’m not ruling ever coming back, but I’m definitely not coming back next year,” he said. “I have a job to do and once I get some work done and get some momentum then maybe I’ll revisit the idea a little later.”
