New Delhi, May 26: Her moves have made her a global superstar and sex symbol but you won't be seeing Jennifer Lopez shimmying to a Bollywood track in the near future.
The diva is busy promoting her latest album ‘Love?', her first in four years, and is a bit too busy for a song and dance stint in the world's largest film industry.
“I haven't given it (Bollywood) a thought just yet! I want my fans in India to listen to the album. If I have plans of coming to India, I will make definitely an announcement,” Jennifer told PTI in an e-mail interview from New York. Her latest album is her take on the universal topic of love, rolled into a thumping dance album which has already scored a hit with the single ‘On The Floor'. And indeed Jennifer has a lot of material to dwell on, including a very public break-up with rapper P Diddy, a cancelled wedding with Ben Affleck and now a six-year-long marriage to Latin star Marc Anthony.
“Love? is my attempt to really explore different questions I have about love. With this album I wish to say the truth as to who I am as a recording artist; with my dance, my attitude, and everything that I have brought about on the platter,” says the 41-year-old mother of two. Jennifer who began her career as a back-up dancer with Janet Jackson, found fame in Hollywood with films like ‘Out of Sight' and ‘Selena' before she released her first album ‘On the 6' in 1999.
And then was born J.Lo, the multi-tasking singer, actress, entrepreneur and all-round diva who famously demanded that all rooms she steppped into be decorated with pink and white lillies.
Then, things changed. In 2004 the singer-actress quietly married her longtime confidante Marc Anthony in a secret ceremony in her Los Angeles home. In 2008, soon after the release of her not-so-sucessful sixth album ‘Brave', she gave birth to twins, Max and Emme.
She spent the next two years as a wife and mother before starting work on ‘Love?' and the experience has filtered through into the album.“My music's sound definitely reflects who I am. Being a mother has affected my music tremendously. It affects how you think of the world, about love, what you choose to do and what you choose to sing about. It affects everything,” said Jennifer who has sold more than 50 million albums worldwide in her decade long career.
Along with promoting her album, which has been released by Universal Music in India, Jennifer is a judge on the superhit talent hunt show ‘American Idol' and is also coming out with her own reality show with her husband. PTI
