How old is Jennifer Lopez? J.Lo is 43 years old—not that she looks her age. Born July 24, 1969, in the Bronx borough of New York City, the singer, dancer, actress, businesswoman, and former “American Idol” judge looks as good as she ever has. (And that’s pretty good.) At 43, J.Lo may be one of the older pop stars still getting radio airplay and filling arenas, but as she proved on her 2012 Dance Again World Tour—a co-headlining trek with Enrique Iglesias—she remains exceedingly popular among fans of all ages and ethnic backgrounds.

Lopez has been in the business for much of her 43 years. She got her start in the early ’90s, when she served as a background dancer for New Kids on the Block and then became a “Fly Girl” on the Fox sketch comedy series “In Living Color.” Before leaving the show, she joined Janet Jackson’s troupe of backup dancers, and in 1996, when she was 27 years old, she appeared in Selena, the film that set her on a path toward Hollywood stardom. Subsequent films include “The Cell” (2000), “The Wedding Planner” (2001), “Maid in Manhattan” (2002) and “Bordertown” (2006). She’s also released seven albums: “On the 6” (1999), “J. Lo” (2001), “This Is Me… Then” (2002), “Rebirth” (2005), “Come Ama una Mujer” (2007), “Brave” (2007), and “Love?” (2011).

At 43, J.Lo is younger than fellow triple threat Madonna, who’s 54 years old. Sure, Lopez has a few years on the likes of Beyonce (30 years old), Lady Gaga (26 years old), Britney Spears (30 years old) and Christina Aguilera (31 years old), but she shows no signs of slowing down. In May 2012, she topped Forbes’ Celebrity 100 list, having earned $52 million in the previous 12 months. After failed marriages to Ojani Noa, Cris Judd and Marc Anthony—not to mention high-profile romances with Ben Affleck and Diddy—she’s dating backup dancer Casper Smart, who’s just 25 years old. Aaliyah said it best: Age ain’t nothing but a number.
