Jennifer Lopez wants her upcoming tour to be a celebration.
The ‘On The Floor’ hitmaker turns 50 in July, and she wants her ‘It’s My Party’ live shows – which kick off with a date in Los Angeles on June 7 – to be an “intimate” way for her to mark the milestone birthday with her fans.
She told ‘Entertainment Tonight‘: “There might be a cake. There might be several cakes. It’s going to be a concert tour, but my aim is to make it feel like an intimate party as well.
“We’re all celebrating together. We’re dancing, we’re singing, we’re having a good time. I want to create a different atmosphere than normal just watch me do my thing. I want it to be interactive.” The multi-talented mother of two also took to photo-sharing app Instagram to share a peek into her outfits for the highly anticipated tour.
J-Lo is also in a celebratory mood after her man Alex Rodriguez proposed in March, and she is excited to bring everything together for the tour.
Describing the show as a “perfect storm”, she added: “This year’s a really big year for me. I was like, ‘We could all be together. We can have like, a special moment, and I can share that with my fans.’
“I’ve just been on this journey — my life has been about my work and my family, and to have all of that kind of converge on this big birthday of mine, I think was perfect. And I just feel like it’s gonna be a really, really special time.”
Meanwhile, J-Lo previously explained she wanted to just do a relatively short run to mark her 50th.
She said: “This summer I decided I wanted to do something big for my birthday since it’s a big birthday. I’m going on a US tour, it’s called ‘It’s My Party’… “We’re only doing 25, 28 shows, something like that. It’s just a small amount of shows, but we’ll be out all through June and July.”
