PETALING JAYA: Actress, singer and dancer Jennifer Lopez promises Malaysians “high energy and hits” when she brings her world tour to Stadium Merdeka this Sunday.
“Everybody's going to be having a great time,” she said in a phone interview from Manila, one of the cities on her Dance Again World Tour circuit. The tour began in June in Panama before proceeding to Latin America, Europe and now, Asia.
However, Lopez stressed that she would take Malaysian values into consideration when she performs here.
“I'm very respectful of people's values wherever I go. I think people should know that,” she said, adding that she was looking forward to her performance here, her first.
“The show's going to have lots of choreography and six costume changes,” said Lopez, who is a professionally trained dancer specialising in ballet, jazz and flamenco.
However, fans should not expect her to do the viral hit Gangnam Style dance in Kuala Lumpur.
“I do enjoy the song very much but, no, I won't be doing that. I won't do it at home, either,” she laughed.
The Puerto Rican beauty is pleased with the reaction to the tour, adding that “people had enjoyed the show all over the world since it began”.
“There's a lot of good feelings around it,” she said.
While for most people, 43 would not actually be an ideal age to do a first world tour, Lopez believes otherwise.
“This is actually the perfect time for it,” she said.
The past 15 years have been a whirlpool of activity for Lopez. After her breakout role in the movie Selena, she has acted in over 30 films, came out with nine albums and launched her own fragrances.
“The show is going to have all my hits from over the years. I've had nine albums so there's a lot of material to cover,” said Lopez, whose famous hits included On The Floor and Let's Get Loud.
