Jennifer Lopez is reportedly returning to the next season of American Idol, but it seems she’s been an idol for a long time–for Britney Spears. The Las Vegas performer admits she’s long looked to J Lo as a singer and dancer that she very much admires.
Spears admitted she’d love to do movies one day–much the way Jennifer Lopez did after launching her music career. She said she’d even love to star in a film with J Lo.
“Jennifer Lopez is my idol – she’s so beautiful and even though she’s gotten older, she hasn’t aged at all. She looks more amazing than ever and I really admire and respect that,” Britney said.
Britney Spears recently kicked off her 2-year Las Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood, where she performs her show Piece of Me. She is certainly driven–as Jennifer Lopez always has been–and despite her current amazing gig, is looking to the future. Given her talent on stage, she would likely make the jump to the film world with no problem.
It must be very flattering to Jennifer Lopez (surely she’s heard about it by now) to know that Britney Spears considers her an idol. Imitation has always been the most sincere form of flattery. It will be fun to see if Britney succeeds in all the ways that Lopez has.
