Jennifer Lopez revealed why she broke down in tears and left the stage while performing at Mohegan Sun arena on Saturday night.
Jennifer Lopez, 42, has sought to explain why she became emotional in front of the packed auditorium after performing a rendition of new song One Love, revealing she reacted to the sympathetic atmosphere in the crowd.
The American Idol judge told later Access Hollywood:
“You know what it was? I was standing there and I realized that I did bare a little bit of my thoughts in this song and I acted it out kind of for the audience.
“And the way they received it was very touching. I think that they felt what I felt, which was that I’m just a girl like everyone else.”
Wearing a sparkling costume, Jennifer Lopez seemed quite overcome, holding a hand to her chest and looking out over the crowd.
“I’m going to sing you the last song I wrote about love. A lot has changed since then,” the star told the crowd.
“We wanted to do a section of the show that talked about love,” she said.
“And through it, I go through all the different moments of my life.
“At the end of the day it’s a journey. It’s about love, It’s about loving yourself.
“The audience saw me being open so they saw it was a regular person like everybody else. I have feelings like everybody else.
“My life gets great and gets not so great sometimes,” Jennifer Lopez admitted. “It is what it is.”
Jennifer Lopez also acknowledged she became more emotional when she spotted her mother in the audience, and when she performed song Until It Beats No More.
“I didn’t see her the whole time until this one moment, and I was a bit emotional.
“The song reminds me of my babies. It always did.
“My mom, my family – they are there during the hard times. The babies – I’m strong for them.”
Her show at Mohegan Sun Arena also saw a cavalcade of potentially emotional moments for Jennifer Lopez when dancers recreated her important relationships while she sang.
One moment was when a P. Diddy double danced with the female dancer wearing a copy of her infamous slit-down-to-the navel Versace gown. Another one was while a ringer for her ex-husband Cris Judd danced with a pared down Lopez look-a-like in jeans.
Next moment was when a doppelganger was wearing a copy of the mint green gown Jennifer Lopez wore to the Oscars with then fiancé Ben Affleck as she twirled with a square-jawed replica of The Town star.
In the end came the most dazzling pairing from the twosome reliving Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony’s American Idol performance from May, only weeks before they announced the end of their marriage.
Jennifer Lopez might have pleaded with us “not to be fooled by the rocks that she’s got” in a past song but if it weren’t for strategically placed sequins, she would have literally bared all to her audience at one point.
Currently, the showbiz world is abuzz with rumours about Jennifer Lopez romance with A-Team hunk Bradley Cooper, 37.
However, Jennifer Lopez pledged not to speak about any romances until she is in another serious relationship at her fashion line launch in Connecticut last week.
The star said she wants to protect her three-year-old twins Emme and Max in case her relationships do not work out.
Jennifer Lopez said: “As a mom, and having children, right now they’re my first priority.
“And because of them, I wouldn’t ever comment on anything until I’m in a serious relationship again.
“It would just be confusing for them and it would be unfair. And so at the end of the day, it’s about them.”
Jennifer Lopez tried to hide her face when she was spotted enjoying some time alone with Bradley Cooper earlier this week.
Jennifer Lopez and Bradley Cooper are believed to have started dating in September, when they were spotted enjoying dinner at Per Se restaurant in New York.
Jennifer Lopez had tried to explain the cosy meeting away by insisting it was just a professional meeting.
