The superstar was asked which young talents she finds inspiring, and she didn’t hesitate to gush about an encounter with one of her favorites that she said was “mind-blowing.”
“Billie Eilish,” JLo said in an Q&A for fiancé A-Rod and Big Cat’s podcast, The Corp. “My daughter is in love with her. We had a real moment at the Billie Eilish concert that was like, ‘Oh my god, we’re bonding right now. It’s amazing.'”
“I watched my daughter freak out over Billie Eilish … She walked in the room after the concert, and my daughter goes [gasps with hand over her mouth]. And I looked at her, and I’m like, ‘What’s the matter?’ and she’s, literally, the tears because she’s idolized this girl. For whatever reason, her songs and the words she says she connects to, and she loves her style. Whatever it is moves her,” Lopez explained.
“It made me appreciate what I do more, my fans more, what Billie did for my daughter,” she added. “All of it, it was like a full circle moment. We love Billie.”
JLo also shared her love of another young pop star, Ariana Grande.
“I love Ariana Grande,” she said. “I think she’s super talented. It’s not just her beautiful voice. It’s her spirit. It’s her comedy. It’s her ability to do different things. I love seeing that.”
