June 9th, 2014
It’s a rainy mess today in NYC, but the highlight of my weekend was
getting to meet J.Lo at her AKA Album listening party on Saturday!
La Lopez’s team assembled bloggers and music writers to listen to her 10th (!) album at the Beats by Dre store in Soho, all over yummy hors d’oeuvres and Belaire Rosé champagne.
She perched on stage in a gold and black Emanuel Ungaro
Spring 2014 ensemble, going through several of her pop and hip-hop
infused tracks, which feature cameos by Iggy Azalea, Nas, Pitbull, T.I.,
I was able to grab a picture with her (she was stunning down to her fuchsia fingertips!), and took a quick moment to ask her about her workout routine!
She said, “I dance a lot with my tour, so that keeps me in shape,
but I generally try to work out about 4 days a week. You can’t kill
After the listening session, I made reference to her recent return
tour to the Bronx, and asked how her roots influence her style. She
said, “I’m just a girl from the Bronx who was able to travel the
world. I’ve stayed very grounded. I still like my gold, my sneakers, and
my hoops, but my fashion sense is also influenced by the many places
I’ve traveled.” And it shows.
J.Lo’s AKA album drops on June 17th. See her chat about her latest project below:
