Jennifer Lopez Isn't Afraid to Critique Her Dancers: 'I Have an Eye For It'
Here’s what the 46-year-old superstar had to share with the mag:
On her new residency in Las Vegas: “I want it to be a high-energy, Bronx kind of block party. The most exciting shows make you dance, and scream, and jump up and down. I want people to really let loose. I’m just looking to do the best Jennifer Lopez show anyone has ever seen. I want the show to be always changing, so it’s a unique experience every time—one night a Selena song, and another maybe something by Diana Ross.”
On her new TV Series Shades of Blue: “It’s set in the world of cops, but it’s really about human nature—how we’re always riding a line of what’s right and what’s wrong, that slippery slope.”
On critiquing dancers: “I started as a dancer, so I have an eye for it. I’ve done it my whole life. Sometimes other people—the music department or my management—might like a person, but I’m, like, ‘Oh, they’re a little bit weak in this part; there’s not enough technique.’ They’re bringing the story to life, so they’re an integral part of the show, acting a little bit, even.”
