You have a new album coming out soon. What can we expect from it?

I think it’s going to come out in the spring, there’s no official date yet. We’re literally still in the studio recording, I was just there a day ago. But the single’s out, it’s called “I Can’t Describe (The Way I Feel),” and the video is going to be released on the 23rd of January and it’s a different side of me. I’m not going to say I discovered anything, but I’m introducing a new side of me.

Is it your fierce side?

It is. I call her Jones. That’s Jones, that’s not Jennifer. It’s so different, it’s really cool, and the music is, too. I love the energy. I got to work with Timbaland, and Pharrell, and R. Kelly.

You surprised fans when you told Chelsea Handler in October that you’ve been sober your entire life. Do you really not drink?

Let me tell you something. No, I don’t! I’ve never had a drink in my life, but I got a little story for you that just literally happened to me. I was performing at a private event, it was a wedding. One of the groom’s kids ran up on the stage and she had a drink. I thought it was my drink that they sent on stage for me. It turns out to be her alcoholic beverage. And I was like, what is this?

Turns out I had my first drink, unfortunately.
