Dance Again by Jennifer Lopez is not only a great dance song, it is a peak into Lopez’s life with new boy-toy Casper Smart and based on the lyrics, she sure does enjoy his company. A sneak of the song’s music video was first shown on the April 5th episode of American Idol, which definitely garnered the wrath of some critics, deeming the super sexy video not appropriate for the “family friendly” American Idol.
Lopez however, probably doesn’t really care, she’s very big on living and loving again right now and wants the world to know it. “It was just a very natural thing for us to do that together. Everything that the song is saying — where I’m at — it was just very natural. It didn’t feel forced.” Also stating she loves the message this song conveys, which may be confusing for some people.
During an interview with American Idol host, Ryan Seacrest, Lopez explains what Dance Again means to her, “I love the message of the song. That when something bad happens, your life is not over. You have to get up. You’re gonna live. You’re gonna to be okay. You’re gonna dance again.” However for some critics, the message of the song may be more along the lines of ‘I’m not even divorced yet from the father of my 4-year-old twins and yet it’s ok to make a music video where i lay in an orgy pit and get too close for comfort to my current boyfriend who’s half my age.’ I don’t know… you decide!
