J’LO gotta be cautious when she emerges her Vegas residency next year: There gotta be a reason why it’s called the sin city.
“It’s the best restaurants, a lot of shopping. You can get into trouble over there,” Lopez comments with a giggle. “I get into the clean kind of trouble. I’m not a gambler, and I’m not into the nightlife as much, but I have plans to enjoy myself.”
J’LO put rumors for more than year, when on Tuesday night she announced the Vegas residency on American Idol, where she is a judge, and which will finally abrogate next spring , after 15 seasons.
Her yet to be titled Vegas show will commence on Jan. 20 at the Axis theater at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino (which is the current home of Britney Spears’ Piece of Me show), this will carry on for 19 more dates through January, February, May and June. The (AMEX) American Express cardholders’ pre-sale commences on Wednesday (1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT), prior to tickets going on sale to the nation on Saturday (1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT).
Jennifer Lopez is not a customary Vegas candidate, as she is already overflowing with workload. After the release of her eighth (and lowest-selling) album previous summer, The over occupied singer started writing a book (True Love, which released previous fall), starring in the erotic thriller “The Boy Next Door” in January.
With American idol and shades, “itll probably be a little bit of a challenge scheduling-wise, but nothing that anybody doesn’t think (I) can handle,” Lopez says. “I’m excited. It’s something I’ve thought about a lot. Just being in one place (and) not having to tour the world as much.” (Being mom of 7 year old twins seems ideal for her)
Lopez prospected this by selling out New Year’s Eve show at the Caesars Palace last year, that “made me feel more comfortable with the idea of doing something there permanently,” she says. She is planning to start development for the show the following month.
JLO wants to integrate all her music into the intimate, heavy dance affair — this compliments her as she belongs to Latin heritage.
“There’s a lot of different things over the years people have come to know me as (and) so many different things we can delve into,” Lopez says. “We haven’t started exactly, but in my mind, I know it’s going to be a multifaceted, high-energy kind of block party.”
