Jennifer Lopez Covers Harper’s Bazaar / Readies New Album

jennifer lopez hapers bazaar 2013 e1357227802702 Jennifer Lopez Covers Harpers Bazaar / Readies New Album

There is no stopping Jennifer Lopez!

Fresh from wrapping a successful world tour, the 43 year old diva is already gearing up for a return to the charts. And so as to kick off her “comeback”, the Lopez features on the February 2013 cover of Harper’s Bazaar.

Taking to Twitter on New Year’s Eve, the stage blazer declared that the year is hers, beaming with excitement about “#Album10″ – which hitmaker RedOne has confirmed he is working on.

As such, the stunning feature sets the wheels in motion for what should be an interesting “era” for the singer. For, despite “winning” on more fronts than losing in recent years (see: the millions wracked up via touring, endorsement deals, and American Idol), the fact remains that her albums and singles (sans ‘On The Floor’ and ‘Dance Again’) haven’t performed well since the mid 00′s.

Will this project right those “wrong” or will it take the Madonna approach and merely be used as a vehicle to mobilize the brand (touring, endorsements, media opps)? Time will tell.

In the meanwhile, peep more pics and quotes below…

On her fast life:

“I like the whole idea of traveling, of looking good, and doing it well. I make it as simple and as beautiful as I can because my life is kind of big. So I pack my luggage, or dress myself, or comb my kids’ hair, pick up their clothes—that makes our life beautiful, you know? There’s something very elegant in that.”

On Feeling Young:

“When I turned 40, I was like, huh. I accept myself more now. It was much more comforting. That’s when I became the person that I am. Even though I didn’t realize the whole journey I would go on, I still feel all that youthfulness. (I characterize my mental age as “16 to 18)”

On Her Best & Worst:

“The worst is when I’m tired. It’s the overworking, which I’ve learned to say no to. I’m not my best self. I’m at my best, I think, when I’m giving love. I feel my best, I am my best, I need my best.”

    She’d have to go back to her “Jenny From The Block” days if she ever wants to be successful, musically again. She’s not on anyone’s radar anymore. Sorry babe!

    Some artists just can’t seem to understand that there’s something called EXPIRATION DATE.

    Like… When I see J-Lo, Mariah Carey, and the 66.y.o. CHER releasing new music………. I just feel disgusted, in a strange kind of way……

    OK Replied:

    One day Beyonce will be 66 years old. Is she supposed to give up performing after age 35 or 40 so that you won’t feel “disgusted”, or will you still support her music in spite of however old she is?

    Let's Be Real Replied:

    People are so stupid.Tina Turner was selling out arenas just a few years ago at 69,Madonna is 54 and STILL outselling EVERY ARTIST on her world tours in LESS time.Age really ain’t nothing but a number, Aaliyah NEVER lied.Beyonce will be 60 and still touring and selling out if she stays in shape and releases great material.

    Now THOSE pictures are beautiful. She’s always been very confident in her own skin. I appreciate JLO repping the Latinas even tho I’m not one of them. She has been very successful and crossover for someone of her race. I kinda wish she would drop the dance music though. Urban songs like “I’m into you” “Jenny on the block” “Get right” fit her very good. I’d like to hear more of that type of sound. But I understand she’s trying to sell in this generation. I don’t like her as a singer but her and janet know how to DESTROY a stage and that’s why I will probably always check for them.

    The video shows that she looks better without being tweaked, she actually looks younger and fresh in the video than the pictures. Let me educate some of you. Y’all needs to realize that she’s no rookie, she is a veteran, a Legend on her own, she created her own brand, she is well respected everywhere, actually she was an Icon even before Britney became bigger, i know most of you are very young but there was a time when this woman was in the news everyday, i’m sure some in here remember 2003-2004, the whole Bennifer relationship, they were the Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie of the world, you can dislike her but you cannot deny her contributions to our Culture, she was the first woman to change the way big girls were seen in our society, thanks to her Guitar body shape, curvaceous girls like Beyonce, Shakira, Kim Kardashian, Nicki Minaj among others should all thank her for that, today they all boast of their curves, had it not been for her, all of them would have to lose weight to be accepted in our society, she was also part of the Latino movement of the late 90′s that changed the way Americans treat Latinos, it was her, Ricky Martin, Christina Aguilera and Enrique Iglesias, Shakira came late to the party. she open the doors in Hollywood to Hispanic Actresses like Salma Hayek, Eva Longoria, Eva Mendez and even for those from Spain like Penelope Cruz and Elsa Pataki. Her music is great, for those who doesn’t know her catalogue, she hasn’t done a bad album yet, the closest thing was “Love?” and even that album have great songs, she just need to go back to go back to her roots you know R&B, Latin Soul that she does brilliantly. Jennifer Lopez is an American icon of improvement, the American dream come true. She will be remembered as someone who was successful in everything shee set out to do. A true inspiration.

    Dance Again is a HIT. It’s sold almost 3 Million copies worldwide (which is as much as Britney’s #1 song Hold It Against Me). It peaked in the Top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 higher than another one of Jen’s Top 20 hits- Play. and #1 Dance Club Chart! # 3 on the Latin Chart!!
