Using her voice for good! After Jennifer Lopez performed a powerful patriotic medley where she incorporated a bilingual message of unity at Joe Biden’s inauguration ceremony, the singer has been bitten by the political bug.
“Una nación, bajo dios, indivisible, con libertad y justicia para todos,” the Latina superstar said in Spanish, before referring to her hit song, “Let’s Get Loud.” (“One nation, under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all,” in Spanish.) OK! has learned that Lopez isn’t stopping there, she is determined to use her voice and power to create change.
“Jen was in awe of being in Washington, D.C., surrounded by the most powerful people in the world. And now that she has tasted it, there is no going back,” a source tells OK!, noting that we shouldn’t “expect her to be running for President any time soon, but Jen will be weighing in more on political issues that matter to her.”
“Jennifer [Lopez] now has direct access to the President of The United States,” the source continued, adding that “she has private numbers and email addresses to our leaders, and she isn’t going to be shy about using that access when she has something to say.”
When it comes to what is most important to the singer, a pal close to Lopez added that we can “expect immigration and women’s rights to be something she has a lot to say about,” stressing that her goal is to use “her voice to help others and make changes in the world.”
Lopez is no stranger to politics. Throughout the 2020 election cycle, she was very vocal about her support for Biden. Her and her fiancé, Alex Rodriguez, endorsed him back in October during a video chat.
"We’re thrilled and we’re excited to vote,” Rodriguez began. “I think our voice has never been more important. We want to come together as a team to defeat COVID and to rebuild this U.S. economy that needs us all so much.”
"For me, it’s [about] unifying the nation again,” Lopez added. “I hate thinking about my kids walking around in a world where it’s okay to be racist or prejudiced because our administration says it’s okay.”
