Jennifer Lopez: I'm inspired by Gaga

Jennifer Lopez is inspired by Lady Gaga to do "great things".
The 'American Idol' judge is a big fan of the 'Born This Way' singer and insists creative people like Gaga make her want to be more experimental with her own music.
Speaking about the phenomenal success Gaga has achieved, J.Lo said: "I'm always motivated by other artists and inspired by them. They inspire me because when I see other people doing great things, it makes me want to do great things too."
Lopez got to experience Gaga's talents up close when she worked with her on the tracks 'Hypnotico' and 'Invading My Mind' for her latest album 'Love?'.
In an interview with MTV News, the 'On the Floor' hitmaker revealed: "I love her (Gaga's) sense of lyric and melody, I feel like she's very interesting. It's just not something you're gonna hear every day."
She added: "I really love the records she worked on and was glad to be able to take those and make them my own and actually have that collaboration with her. I feel very lucky to have done that."
Despite her admiration for Gaga, Lopez has no plans to copy some of the 25-year-old musician's more outrageous antics, which have included wearing a meat dress to the MTV Video Music Awards last year and arriving at this year's Grammys in an 'egg'.
Lopez, 41, said: "I never am one to look at other people and try to do what they do. I always feel like a true artist does what they do and it is very individual to who they are.
"You can't copy or do anything like that it just becomes weird but if you're true to yourself and push your own boundaries and your limits, you can't help but come out with something great."
