43 year-old mother of two, Jennifer Lopez is proving that she’s not getting older, she’s getting fitter as she shows off some seriously flat abs in her latest offering with Pitbull in her video for Live It Up.
Jennifer aka J-Lo from back in the day she lived on the block, knows how to jumpstart the summer season with a sexy, kicking music video to accompany her new single.
In her latest video, Jennifer travels from a fashion runway in Paris to a beach party with Pitbull, aka Armando Pérez. The video lasts a whole four-and-a-half fantastic minutes and features lots of costume changes for the sultry singer, including a cheeky leather leotard and a white fringe ensemble. She rips up the Paris runway in a black feathered outfit and flaunts those flat abs in a midriff-baring top as she soars through the air on a swing.
Of course dancer Lopez is giving a nod and a wink to the film Black Swan with her black feathered costume in the runway sequence. But the nods and winks don’t stop there, she also emulates an outfit that she wore this week on American Idol. It is apparently in the video to remind us that she performed the track on the season finale of the talent competition on Thursday.
The later beach scenes were shot in Florida earlier this month.
In an eerie repeat of the gunshots that were fired over an ocean away during the live interviews of Christoph Waltz and French actor Danny Auteuil at the 65th Cannes Film Festival being held in the French Riviera; Lopez had her video shoot and several interviews disrupted when gunshots were fired near the beach in Fort Lauderdale, Florida where they where filming. Lopez was rushed off the scene in the right in the middle of an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
“Live It Up” is expected to be featured on Lopez’s upcoming studio album, hitting stores later this year.
