On a springlike day in early March, Jennifer Lopez walked into the lopez greenroom at the Today show. It was 7:30.m., and she mentioned that she was tiredas well she should have been. Shed arrived in New York from Los Angeles the morning before at.m.; slept for a few hours at her apartment just off Madison Square Park; gone to the cover shoot for this magazine, where she stayed until 8:30.m.; changed clothes and rushed.
Reid, the head of Epic Records, which she had just rejoined, after a six-year separation; changed clothes again and then, at 10:15.m., appeared on Bravos Watch What Happens Live, where shed answered questions about her ex-fianc. Ben Afflecks enormous tattoo (Awful! and whether or not she uses handcuffs in the bedroom (I think that question is too personal).
But Lopez, who was dressed in a long-sleeve white lace minidress and black suede over-the-knee high-heel boots, appeared surprisingly fresh. Im exhausted just looking at all that you do, Matt Lauer, the shows host, said to her before their on-camera interview. He then left her and her seven-member teamincluding her wardrobe, hair, and makeup glam-squad, her manager, her producing partner, a publicist, and one very handsome bodyguardin the small dressing room.
The, today show is, in fact, a labyrinth of sets scattered over different floors of a building in Rockefeller Plaza. Tina Fey and her entourage passed by on their way to do a segment, and a burly male chef in an apron stood in a corner. Last night was kind of crazyeveryone was crushing on Anthony, Lopez said, referring to her bodyguard, as she sat down on a couch.
Watch What Happens Live appearance had kicked off a three-day promotional blitz for Lopezs exceptionally full roster of projects: the final season. American Idol, on which Lopez was a judge, was about to end; she has a three-year residency at the Planet Hollywood Resort Casino in Las Vegas, where her extravaganza show resumes May 22; and.
Shades of Blue, a cop drama on NBC, of which Lopez is a producer and also the star, had just been picked up for a second season. All that, and yet the previous night, the main topic, as it often is with Lopez, had been her fabulous self. Do you think the Kardashians stole your jam with having a great ass?
Andy Cohen, the host, asked on air. I think I paved the way for them, she said.
Just another innovation that Ive given to the world! Theres a central dichotomy with Lopez: At 46, shes both glamorous and endlessly industrious: a red-carpet star who convincingly portrays a single, blue-collar mom jennifer of a 16-year-old. Whats more, her love affairs with powerful men as varied as Affleck, Sean Puffy Combs, and her ex-husband, the singer Marc Anthony, have all played out in public, making her seem at once formidable and approachablea kind of peoples diva.
