elle– Jennifer Lopez opened up for the first time in an interview since she began her renewed relationship with Ben Affleck. In an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1, Lopez shared how blissful her life is right now.
“I’m super happy,” she said. “I know people are always wondering. How are you? What’s going on? Are you okay? This is it. I’ve never been better. And I want my people who care about me because I care about them so much, to know that I’ve really gotten to a place in my life where I’m great on my own. And I think once you get to that place, then amazing things happen to you that you never imagine in your life happening again. And so that is where I’m at. And I love all the love that’s coming my way right now and all of the, the good wishes. And I just want everybody to know that it’s the best time. It’s the best time of my life.”
The interview surrounded the release of “Cambia El Paso,” the English translation of which means “change the step.”
“The song is about change and not being afraid to take the step,” she said on SiriusXM’s Pitbull’s Globalization show, ahead of the single’s release today. “Like, just take the step, advance, do what you need to do. If something’s not feeling right, whatever it is in your life, like, just make that move and dance. Dance is life, and joy and happiness.”
In her Apple Music interview, Lopez said she was in the Dominican Republic, following her breakup with Alex Rodriguez, when she realized she was in a place to record again.
“I’m good,” she said. “I love my life right now. I love what I’m doing. I love where I’m at. I love the person that I am continually kind of evolving into and becoming. And that kind of joy, that kind of happiness, that kind of love always inspires me. I think some people really get inspired when they’re heartbroken.”
