JENNIFER Lopez, officially the world's most powerful celebrity, will tour Australia in December.
Her greatest hits show, Dance Again, will visit Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth.
Lopez said: "I can't wait to get to Australia and that side of the world. We are going to dance and sing all night."
The superstar, voted most powerful and influential celebrity by Forbes Magazine in 2012, is also famous for her backstage requests while on the road.
Once, Lopez asked for a white dressing room with white flowers, white table and tablecloths, white drapes, white candles, and white couches.
A hotel suite request included lemon or grapefruit scented candles and a room temperature of 26C.
But Bronx-born Lopez, who insists in song she is still Jenny From The Block, says luxuries do not define her.
"I don't let things like that go to my head because that's not what my life is about," she said.
"My life is about art and creating and being inspired."
Lopez says she is proud, as a Latino woman, to be named a power player
"You go about your life, doing your thing, doing your best, then you realise people are keeping track," she said.
"To me, it's a great acknowledgement, validation that I've been working for a long time, I'm successful, and that they have noticed."
After eight albums, Dance Again is Lopez's first world tour.
She quit a judging role on American Idol to plan and perform her show.
Her boyfriend Casper Smart, 25, oversees choreography on the tour.
Her twins, Max and Emme, are likely to accompany their mother.
"We created a show that I'm really proud of. I can't wait to get to Australia and that side of the world," Lopez said.
Lopez will perform at Allphones Arena in Sydney on December 14.
