ET’s Rachel Smith spoke with Lopez on the red carpet at the 2019 IFP Gotham Awards at Cipriani Wall Street in New York on Monday, where the multi-talented songstress stunned in a feathery black and gold Ralph & Russo dress which she paired with Jimmy Choo heels and a clutch while posing for photos.
“I don’t have that much time,” Lopez told ET with a laugh when asked about the upcoming preparations for her Super Bowl halftime show. “We’re starting.”
While she couldn’t give away any secrets from her forthcoming performance, Lopez said it’s very important that she remembers what a halftime show is truly all about.
“For me, I’m obviously going to try to put together the best show that I can, but it’s also about having fun,” she explained. “Just being up there, staying present in the moment and enjoying all of the wonderful things that are happening.”
That being said, she said she’s hard at work making everything come together, explaining, “We still have to develop it a little bit more.”
In the meantime, the celebrated star is also preparing to host “Saturday Night Live” for the third time — after previously hosting in 2001 and 2010. And while the writing cycle for the coming episode is just kicking off, one question on some people’s minds is whether or not we’ll get a cameo from her fiance, Alex Rodriguez.
“There was no talk of that,” Lopez said with a laugh. “Not yet.”
With all that on her plate, Lopez is also on the awards season campaign trail for “Hustlers”, which has been getting a ton of Oscars buzz, with her commanding performance being especially hailed by critics.
“I’m super excited for the movie, and for everyone involved with the movie,” Lopez said with a humble smile. “I’m gonna try to enjoy every minute and just stay present.”
