Thus, JLo explained it is high time they start enjoying their life, and quit taking every accept of it with such seriousness. She said,
“I’m not a huge alcohol whatever-alcohol drinker, so it needed to be something that was really pleasant tasting–I loved the idea of creating something a little more healthy, a little bit more to my taste with kind of healthier ingredients and being gluten-free.”
The actor then further stated she did not find the perfect partner to enjoy her date nights with her husband, which would be both fun and healthy. Therefore, decided to create it herself saying,
“When I didn’t find it, I decided to create Delola.–Delola gives people the freedom to enjoy – free from the cutting, squeezing, and mixing, free from the stress of entertaining, free to make ordinary moments extraordinary.”
She wanted to make something she as well as her fans would enjoy this coming summer and therefore, the idea of bringing out her fun side even more and immortalizing it enthralled her.
