    Jennifer Lopez performs onstage during the 61st Annual Grammy Awards at Staples Center in Los Angeles Feb. 10, 2019 in Los Angeles, California.

    Jennifer Lopez turns 50 on July 24, and ahead of her milestone birthday the star is gearing up for new adventures, including her “It’s My Party” tour beginning in June.

    “I can’t think of a better way to spend this type of birthday, this big 50th birthday — it’s a big deal," Lopez said Monday on NBC's "Today" show. "The opportunity came up and I thought, 'why don’t we make it a big celebration?'”

    Though Lopez performed during a 3-year residency in Las Vegas, she hasn’t gone on a full-fledged tour since 2011.

    The “It’s My Party” tour will start in Los Angeles and will feature the artist performing a mix of her latest and classic anthems alongside elaborate choreography, set design and costume changes, in a host of cities in the United States as well as Canada.

    “It’s an extravaganza,” Lopez said.

    Lopez has sold more than 75 million records and starred in both classic movies such as “Selena” as well as contemporary films, including last year’s “Second Act.” She’s been a judge on “American Idol” and now produces her own show, NBC’s “World of Dance.”

    It's been a stellar career for the artist who was born and raised in the Bronx, as she sang in one of her early hits, "Jenny from the Block."
