NBC is clearly smitten with their Shades of Blue superstar. The peacock network has asked for another dance with Jennifer Lopez. Literally.

The 46-year-old entertainer has teamed up with the World of Dance organization for a new dancing competition show with a grand prize of $1 million dollars. World of Dance is open to all ages, professional or amateur, pretty much anyone. The competitors will be divided into three groups: under 16 years old, over 16 years old and teams.

“This will be a fierce talent-heavy dance competition that embraces the raw emotion and excitement that dance represents,” Lopez said in a statement. “I am excited to work with World of Dance, an organization that has had an immeasurable impact on the dance community, to give all dancers an enormous platform where their dreams can be realized.”

With So You Think You Can Dance no longer being the powerhouse it once was, it’s time for a new dance show to sweep the nation off its feet. This is the second dance-themed series NBC has ordered in recent months. They previously picked up a six-episode unscripted dancing competition from Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum.

Jennifer Lopez and Lin-Manuel Miranda are the latest to release a charity single to raise funds for the victims of the Orlando shooting. Unlike the other offerings, which have mostly been ballads, this dynamic duo’s single is an uptempo pop concoction.

Love Make the World Go Round” begins with a snippet of Miranda’s epic acceptance speech at the 2016 Tonys, after winning for Hamilton. Lopez then delivers her signature Latin-pop sassiness. Overall, it’s quite fantastic. It’s a nice change of pace to hear a charity single that’s uplifting and fun at the same time.

Check out the single below. Proceeds will go to Hispanic Federation for the Somos Orlando Fund, which benefits people affected by the June 12 shooting at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub.

For Mariah Carey, throwing shade is like breathing. I honestly do think she sometimes doesn’t even know she’s doing it. I can relate. I’ve often at times been accused of doing the same.

While visiting Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live last night, once again, Mimi was asked about that infamous “I don’t know her” diss aimed at Jennifer Lopez. When Cohen asked if they knew each other, Carey replied “You know what? I’m very forgetful. Apparently, apparently, I’m forgetful.”

She implies the two divas have never had a long conversation with each other and have only had a brief introductory meeting. Carey could’ve easily squashed all the beef when Andy asked her if she thought J. Lo was ‘cool.’ Apparently, she wasn’t in the mood to extend an olive branch. Watch the video below to see how she answers that.

When Jennifer Lopez released “Ain’t Your Mama,” she received substantial backlash. Not so much for the quality of the track but for who produced it- Dr. Luke. J. Lo wisely amps up the female empowerment aspect of the lyrics written by Meghan Trainor for the accompanying video.

“Treat me good, you know?” Lopez told Entertainment Tonight. “Guys have this tendency… They love you in the beginning, and you’re the hottest woman on earth. Then, all of a sudden it’s like, ‘Okay, where’s my food?’ And I’m like, ‘What?!? You kidding me? Take me out.’”

The clip begins with a sample of Hillary Clinton’s 1995 speech from the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women. Lopez then takes on different personas fighting for their rights from the 50s all the way to present day. The 80s look is my favorite. The 46-year-old then ends it off with an epic dance number, wearing a white jumpsuit with distractingly ugly denim chaps. Check out the video below.

It’s Jenny from the block hooking up with Jenny from the dirt road. Not my words, but theirs. That’s just one of the lyrical gems found in this surprising collaboration. It’s a Jennifer sandwich.

Jennifer Nettles enlists J. Lo for “My House” which is featured on her new album, Playing With Fire. The two Jennys sing about having plenty of things in common despite coming from different worlds. “My house is your house, we’re really not that different,” they belt out. The “Booty” singer even adds a little español in the mix.

Lopez is just the latest pop star to dabble with country music, following recent forays by Gwen Stefani, Katy Perry and more. Beyonce just recently shared her country-folk Lemonade ditty, “Daddy Lessons.”

Give “My House” a listen below. It’s actually not that bad. Fingers crossed a music video is in the works. I’d love to see these two ladies share the same screen.

Should Jennifer Lopez find herself on the market again, all you potential suitors take note. She’s raising two kids and doesn’t have time to take care of a man who exhibits childish and lazy behavior. The 46-year-old entertainer declares she’s not interested in doing your laundry, cook your meals or pay your bills on her new single.

Ain’t Your Mama” is a sassy new offering from J. Lo. She’ll perform the song for the first time on the American Idol series finale tonight. Meghan Trainor not only penned the upbeat anthem but also provides backing vocals. Someone is a superfan.

Another interesting credit for the female empowering track is the fact it was produced by Dr. Luke. Given his current legal troubles with Kesha who’s accused him of sexual assault, it’s a bit ironic.

On a side note, how fantastic does Lopez look on the single artwork? Fierce bitch indeed!!! Check out Jennifer’s new track below and weigh in afterward.
