Singer, actress, author, dancer, fashion designer, producer, and mother are just a few of Jennifer Lopez’s titles. The diva, who turned 46 this past July, spoke to Extra during the Philadelphia leg of auditions for the 15th season of American Idol.
Looking flawless in a fitted, blue Thierry Mugler mini dress with matching snakeskin pumps, Lopez expressed her feelings on hitting 46 years of age. Having people across the globe marvel at her ageless beauty, Lopez says that her looks have a lot to do with nothing more than positive self-talk. “Youthful and timeless at every age, that’s what I tell myself in the mirror every day,” the brunette beauty laughed. She also joked that her big birthday celebration was just the calm before the “heavy duty work storm.”
Looking back on the filming the final season of American Idol, Lopez said that she thinks it “left such a lasting impression about dreams and opportunities,” adding that the show has “touched America” in such a way that nobody will ever forget.
About her upcoming residency in Vegas, she exclaimed, “I feel like I’ve been preparing for this my whole life.” She says everyone will love it, as she is going to create the “quintessential Jennifer Lopez show.”
The mother of two adds that having a residency at Vegas for three years is a “dream come true” for her. Her concert series at Planet Hollywood begins on January 20, 2016. Meanwhile, Lopez is also busy filming the television series Shades of Blue.
