J.Lo: Vegan & missing butter , #BIGBOOTY, free concert in the BX, talks about Jay Z/Solange fight!

Jennifer Lopez has decided to go vegan.

The 44-year-old singer, who was a vegetarian for a brief period some years ago, has completely changed her diet by removing all animal products in an effort to stay in shape but admits she's missing butter.

Earlier this year Beyonce and Jay Z also decided to go vegan for 22 days, although Jennifer seems to be sticking to her diet longterm.

The star told New York radio station Z100: 'Being vegan, it's basically no diary, no meat, everything is plant based and from the ground. Butter is the one thing I miss!'

The I Luh Ya Papi hitmaker claims she would encourage others to go vegan and cut out meat, eggs, dairy products and other animal-derived ingredients all together, because it makes her feel good.

She said: 'You do feel better. I do recommend the vegan diet because you wake up and feel great!'

Jennifer Lopez and her mother were big hits walking the streets of Manhattan yesterday, and if you didn't know they were related ... a quick pan down of our camera revealed the family resemblance.

J. Lo and her mother, Guadalupe were shopping on Madison Ave. where they encountered a bunch of fans ... including one woman who joked she was happier to meet mom than J. Lo.

Jenny does talk to us about where she used to get her hair did -- but, honestly, it was hard to focus due to the view of mother and daughter butt ... and their shared DNA.

Oh, mama!

Jennifer Lopez has been working her booty off. Between her judging gig on “American Idol,” executive role at NUVOtv, and finishing her 10th album, the multi-talented superstar visited her pal Angie Martinez on Hot 97 to discuss her new music, big booty, and the Solange/Jay Z scandal.

J.Lo won’t speculate about the video of Solange attacking her brother-in-law in an elevator. “What I do know about being in the public eye is that you never know the real story and you never will unless somebody decides to share it,” she said.

But she understands that inquiring minds want to know. “People are just nosy,” she said. “And you just gotta know that when you’re in this business and just roll with the punches.”

People have been chatting about J.Lo’s famous assets for years. She even has a Diplo-produced song called “Big Booty” on her upcoming album A.K.A. “It’s a fun song and it’s about owning everything about you and who you are and embracing that,” she explained.

While she’s known for her voluptuous figure, she’s been given a run for her money lately. “It is normal compared to the gargantuan [butts],” laughed J.Lo.

But she has no problem being outshined in the booty department. “I am so fine with it,” she said.

J.Lo will return to her hometown of the Bronx to play a free concert on June 4, two weeks before her album release.
