Jennifer Lopez Reveals Her Bucketlist Dream

Jennifer Lopez has had a banner year. Her starring role in Hustlers earned her awards buzz, and she was recently announced as the featured performer in the 2020 Super Bowl Halftime Show. Plus, she got engaged to pro baseball legend Alex Rodriguez in the spring and is probably in the process of planning her dream wedding.

It seems Lopez is really living life to the absolute fullest. Still, like everyone else, J-Lo dreams of simpler days and recently admitted to a surprising fantasy that seems the total opposite of her life right now.

Jennifer Lopez’s exciting year

Lopez has been one of the biggest stars in the world for decades. Her talents for acting, singing, and dancing have kept her in the headlines year after year, and she has legions of devoted fans all over the world.

Lopez has managed to stay relevant when many other lesser stars have faded, and it seems as though there’s nothing she can’t accomplish. 2019 was truly Lopez’s year, and the 50-year-old superstar proved that she’s better than ever.

Her role as a stripper mastermind in Hustlers was her most popular to date, and the film was a smashing success. She also went on a hugely successful concert tour to celebrate her milestone birthday and was a fixture at several major awards shows.

In addition to her work commitments, Lopez is a devoted mother to her twins, Max and Emme, and maintains a happy relationship with her fiance, Alex Rodriguez. She is one of the hardest-working women in show business, and while she always seems to move full-steam ahead, it is reasonable to assume that she dreams about getting away from it all.

What is Jennifer Lopez’s fantasy?

Recently, Lopez opened up to Vanity Fair magazine about her “bucket list” dream. She admitted that she would “love to live somewhere other than the United States, in a small town in Italy, or on the other side of the world, in Bali.”

Lopez painted a descriptive picture of what her dream destination looks like: “Find another life where it’s a little bit more simple and organic and where I get to ride a bike, and buy bread, and put it in my basket, and then go home and put jelly on it, and just eat and paint, or sit in a rocking chair where there was a beautiful view of an olive tree or an oak tree and I could just smell.” 

Although her life might look very different from that perfect picture at the moment, Lopez definitely takes the time for exotic vacations on occasion.

Lopez might not get to live out her fantasy on a daily basis but she definitely enjoys the finer things in life.

Over the summer, Lopez and Rodriguez visited a multitude of different luxury locales all over the world, from Miami to Monaco. She also has a fondness for yachts and was spotted many times during her vacations chilling out on board a huge, comfortable luxury liner.

When it comes to indulgences closer to home, Lopez also doesn’t skimp. She likes to decorate her home with Le Labo’s Santal 26 candle, which comes in at the hefty price tag of $75 per candle.

Lopez reportedly loves them so much that she orders them in bulk, and purchases around 50 each month. While that might seem like a major indulgence for most people, Lopez knows what she likes and doesn’t hold back from buying designer goods.

Perhaps it’s only a matter of time before she buys her own island in Italy after all.
