2016 is quickly becoming the year of J. Lo after her continued success of Jenuary. Jennifer Lopez has needed some wins and this year is primed to be a rising comeback.
Jennifer Lopez is the reigning queen on the season finale of American Idol. She's spending a few hours a week on our TV sets trying to find the last superstar winner from the aging giant. Along with Keith Urban, Harry Connick Jr., and perennial wallflower Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Lopez is sending American Idol into it's farewell on television.
The show stars Jennifer Lopez as a dirty cop. It brings little new concepts to the format. But, what can? It's executed flawlessly and was a much needed win for the superstar. J. Lo is caught in the crossfire of Ray Liotta and an FBI handler trying to get her to entrap her crew of dirty cops into prison time.
Shades of Blue has it all. Brazilian prostitutes. Heroin addicts. Sex scenes. Dynamite. Ray Liotta stars as a bisexual protector of the community. There's homophobic hate crimes. Racism. Every episode ends with an OMG moment. We've got cheating husbands and violent ex lovers about to get out of jail for a murder they didn't commit. Steamy D.A.'s. Sex. It's amazing.
Her residency show is selling out. She's lip syncing her way through all her hits. The show is titled after her number one smash “All I Have”. She's playing in the Planet Hollywood Resort, right down the street from Celine Dion, Olivia Newton-John, and Mariah Carey.
The sold out performances start at a reasonable rate of $109 and go up to the collegiate price of $858.33. I for one am booking my plane to Vegas.
Now as attainable as that is, do you know what has this Jlover wound up? Jennifer Lopez wants to release new music. For her residency. The Bronx queen is coming back. What better way to end the new year then with a new radio smash?
Two. She's recording a Christmas album. I need something to bolster my holiday spirits besides RuPaul's Ho Ho Ho.
All we know is that she's been in the recording studio. Her duet with Jason Derulo “Try Me” was passed to him when she said “his album would come out before hers”.
The only thing sure in this year of Jennifer Lopez is that she's keeping everything under lock and key. Will the album be R&B? Pop? Dance? Spanish? English? Christmas? A mixture of all of the above. All we can do is wait and see and watch Shades of Blue.
