If Casper Smart is still pining over ex Jennifer Lopez, he better avoid newsstands. The Bronx-born pop star heats up the June 21 cover of Billboard — rocking a skintight, ruby-hued bodysuit with matching mile-high pumps.

The text accompanying the searing-hot photo — which was captured by photographer Joe Pugliese — appropriately screams, "Whoa, J.Lo!"

Inside the mag, the 44-year-old says that it's a new day for her — and not just because she's single: "I never put myself out there to show the world what I could do in the best way I could. And touring, you gain a lot when you go out there every night and sing when you feel good, or even when your voice is scratchy and you feel a little off. It made me want to get back into the studio without that cage I had put on myself. Once I let that beast loose, I was doing things I didn't know I could do."

That said, she doesn't exactly have her next moves mapped out. "I don't know what I'm going to be doing in the next six months, she reveals. "And that's okay for me. Because what I like is whatever happens is supposed to happen. And I'm good. I can roll with that."Rest assured — especially with a magazine cover like this — that we'll be watching whatever she does next!
