Jennifer Lopez has been having a big couple of months: she’s starring in the TV crime drama “Shades of Blue,” dating retired baseball star Alex Rodriguez, and appearing in interviews on just about every talk show on television. She’s also performed in the Dominican Republic and is working on her next Spanish-language album with ex-husband Marc Anthony. How much more excitement can you take?
Well, in the case of J.Lo, more, always more.
Last night, the Billboard Latin Music Awards aired on Telemundo. Lopez stole the show over and over again.
First, she showed up looking like a million bucks.
Then she performed a new song, “Mirate,” from her forthcoming album produced by ex-husband Marc Anthony.
“Mirate” is a bit of a sorrowful song, which seems to work for Lopez most when releasing music in Spanish. One of her biggest hits in Spanish to date is her break up duet with Marc Anthony, “No Me Ames.”
Later in the show, she accepted “El Premio de la Estrella” awarded for all of her work and excellence.
In her best Nuyorican Spanish, she accepted the award as Marc Anthony looked on with a big smile.
Anthony also shouted her out when he took the stage.
Admitting that it was J.Lo’s night, he congratulated Lopez before sharing some words of inspiration from his mamá while he accepted an award of his own.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, J.Lo dished on everything from working with Anthony to how A.Rod responds to her music.
She also said “J-Rod” isn’t all that clever of a name, ya’ll, because they thought of it before all of us, so there.
We can’t wait for that new album to drop.
