Jennifer Lopez is having a good year.
After taking the job as one of the new judges on American Idol, along with Steven Tyler, Lopez was named People magazines most beautiful woman in the world, the magazine announced Wednesday.
“Rarely am I left speechless, but I feel honored,” the Bronx born star told the magazine after finding out the news.
“The thing is, it’s part of my job,” the American Idol judge told People in this week’s cover story about staying in good shape. “I don’t want anybody thinking it’s easy. It does take time and it’s hard work. HDTV wide-screen is nobody’s friend!”
Lopez, 41 is making a comeback after having twins in 2008 with her husband Marc Anthony. Along with her new gig on the number one talent show in America, Lopez is also making news in the music industry. She has a new hit song called “On the Floor” featuring Pitbull. And her new album “Love?” is scheduled to come out in May.
When the magazine asked her about being called a Diva, Lopez said, “I kind of like it. We’ve kind of owned it now. But I certainly don’t like and I’ve never been a person who has what they call ‘diva behavior,’ which is something they tried to pin on me for a long time.”
