Jennifer Lopez would consider a career in politics.

The singer-and-actress was recently included in the Forbes list of most powerful women.

After giving up her seat on the American Idol judging panel, the 43-year-old reveals an exciting new direction she could pursue.

“Might you see me entering politics? Yeah, there are women popping up in all different places now,” she revealed.

“We’ll see as time goes on. You know how women are, we’ll start taking over little by little.”

J-Lo has managed to combine a busy schedule of touring with a successful acting career.

The mother of four-year-old twins, Max and Emme, explains her upbringing inspired her to achieve her goals.

“The women who raised me – my mother and grandmother – were very powerful, very strong Puerto Rican women,” she told British magazine Look.

“They taught me everything I know about working hard and being a lady. They were definitely my role models.”
