We know January will be a very busy month for Jennifer Lopez, with the release of The Boy Next Door and the premiere of American Idol. Things are already getting started with a new magazine cover! Jennifer graces the cover of the January issue of SELF.
Here’s an excerpt from the article:
“I still consider myself a dancer first and foremost,” she says. “Well, after being a mother, of course.” Though Lopez already put in enough rehearsal time last weekend to need only a light walk-through tonight, she’s here because she doesn’t believe in doing anything halfway. She goes hard, in stilettos, on a Monday night, because that’s who she is. Between swigs of water, Lopez listens intently as her 10 dancers, many of whom have been with her for years, chime in with stage ideas for the kids’ show, including massive sets of feathers and dramatic mic tosses, before giving them her own tips in calm, direct shorthand. “That’s right, you’ve gotta hit it here,” she says to one of the girls as she demonstrates a hip twerk. “And let’s get in a straight line for that last part,” she says to the guys. The dancers bounce back into place for another go, smiling because—well, because they get to dance with Jennifer Lopez for a living.
Lopez is smiling, too, even though it’s been a long day. Earlier, she filmed an hour-long interview with Maria Shriver for the Today show. Then she drove for an hour to attend a taping of Dancing With the Stars, in support of her close friend, the actress Leah Remini, who was cohosting. When she is done with her dance rehearsal, at around 10 p.m., she will head into a studio to record a few new tracks with Rodney Jerkins, the prolific producer behind “If You Had My Love,” her first hit from 16 years ago, and the Destiny’s Child smash “Say My Name,” among others. In spite of her hectic schedule, she swears she sleeps eight hours a night, joking that she’s too boring to be found out on the town after midnight. “I’m in bed between 11:30 and 12:30 unless I’m pulling an all-nighter or on a night shoot,” she says, which also might help explain why her complexion looks even more flawless in person.

Exciting news!! Jennifer Lopez will make you want to get up and dance this New Year’s Eve when her high-energy HBO special JENNIFER LOPEZ: DANCE AGAIN debuts simultaneously on HBO and HBO Latino, WEDNESDAY, DEC. 31 (9:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT). In addition, the exclusive presentation will run in a 24-hour round-the-clock marathon on HBO Zone starting at 10:30 p.m. on New Year’s Eve and continuing through New Year’s Day.
The docu-concert goes behind the scenes of Lopez’s first world tour, which visits 65 cities and five continents, traveling 100,000 miles and reaching one million fans, producing 11,250 minutes of music, and requiring 500,000 sequins and 162 wardrobe changes. DANCE AGAIN combines riveting musical performances with a raw and candid look at Lopez’s personal and professional life over a defining six-month period, when she challenges herself to go on her first world tour with her two young children in tow.
“I wanted to tell a story, to open myself up to people,” says Lopez. “The experience was more fulfilling than I could have ever imagined. This documentary brings back so many incredible memories and I am so excited to relive the tour, and once again, share these experiences with my fans.”
The special includes intimate documentary footage and interviews with Lopez and her closest friends, who accompanied her on the road, as well as spectacular in-concert renditions of many of her biggest hits, including “Get Right,” “Love Don’t Cost a Thing,” “I’m Into You,” “Goin’ In,” “Let’s Get Loud,” “On the Floor,” “I’m Real,” “Do It Well,” “All I Have” and “Dance Again.” Lopez, who is considered one of the most famous Latina entertainers in the world, begins the tour in South America and ends in Puerto Rico, where she held her first concert 11 years earlier.
JENNIFER LOPEZ: DANCE AGAIN is executive produced by Nuyorican Productions’ Jennifer Lopez, Benny Medina, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, Priscilla Porianda and Tiana Rios, and The Weinstein Company’s Bob and Harvey Weinstein.
The Sundance Institute announced the films selected to screen in the out-of-competition Premieres section earlier today, and Jennifer Lopez’s upcoming film, Lila & Eve, is among them!! Jennifer stars alongside Viola Davis in the film. Viola plays Lila, a grief-stricken mother reeling from her son’s murder who attends a support group where she meets Eve (Jennifer’s character), who urges her to take matters into her own hands to track down her son’s killers. They soon embark on a journey of revenge, but also recovery.
The 2015 Sundance Film Festival will run from January 22 to February 1 in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden and Sundance, Utah. Congratulations to Jennifer and everyone involved!

Jennifer Lopez is on the cover of the December issue of Harper’s Bazaar Russia in an exclusive photoshoot! Jennifer looks regal on the cover, which was shot by Steven Gomillion & Dennis Leupold and styled by Elizabeth Cabral.
Jennifer did it again! With club banger Booty, and a little help from Iggy Azalea and Pitbull, she scores her 16th #1 on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart this week!
This also makes her move up a spot on the list of artists with the most #1 on the dance chart, she shakes her way up to #7 now (a tie with Kristine W). Ladies to beat now for the #5 spot are Mariah Carey and Donna Summer with both 17 #1’s on the chart. But as we all know JLo loves to dance, love and dance again so we’re pretty sure this won’t be her last time topping the chart.
Jennifer Lopez stole the show at the American Music Awards with a show-stopping performance of Booty! Jennifer also incorporated a new song, Throw Your Hair Back. We don’t know if it’s a new song, or a remix for the dance break, but check the performance out above!
Jennifer walked the red carpet in a pink Reem Acra dress and Louboutins.
