Jennifer Lopez will perform at the World Cup ceremony in Brazil


Not wanting to disappoint her fans, Jennifer Lopez changed her mind and decided to perform at the World Cup opening ceremony in Brazil on Thursday.

Two days ago, FIFA officials announced the singer had canceled her plan to perform this year’s official World Cup song, “We Are One (Ole Ola),” due to unspecified production issues. However, Lopez insists she wouldn’t miss it.

Speaking to the Associated Press, she said: “I’m coming. I leave tonight. We always were going. I think people get anxious, especially with me and my schedule when I’m like, ‘Ah, Ok, I can leave this day, that day, I don’t know if we can make it.’ People get nervous and I think it was a little bit premature to announce anything. But we are definitely going.”

Jennifer’s representative also confirmed her appearance at the ceremony.

We have been trying to work out scheduling and logistics. Any statements to the contrary were premature. Jennifer would not want to disappoint her fans or fans of futbol.”

Lopez, Pitbull and Brazilian pop star Claudia Leitte will perform the official World Cup song for the finale of the opening ceremony.
