Jennifer Lopez birthday celebration

Jennifer Lopez happily celebrated her birthday with Italian food and a party on a boat.

Jennifer Lopez birthday celebration

Jennifer Lopez celebrated her first birthday as a single woman in seven years in one of her favorite cities in the world: Miami.

The singer turned 42 surrounded by family and friends, minus her soon-to-be-ex Marc Anthony. Lopez hit up some of her favorite hotspots for dinner and shopping.

"Jennifer looked radiant in a purple and silver evening dress," a source who spotted Lopez at Italian eatery Scarpetta told People. "And when they brought out her birthday cake after the meal, she began to sing. She was very happy. The whole group had a blast, staying for hours. They closed down the restaurant."

The American Idol judge, who hasn't decided if she'll be back next season, was also spotted giving her Black Amex a workout at Hermes, Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino and Pucci in South Beach.

Lopez spent Sunday celebrating her birthday in high style, flaunting her bikini body on a giant yacht called "Never Say Never," which could apply equally to both the questions of if she will return to American Idol and if she will ever marry again.
