Jamie-Lynn Sigler, who plays Meadow in the hit show, wants to be the next Jennifer Lopez...

An actress from TV’s ‘THE SOPRANOS’ is aiming to become the new JENNIFER LOPEZ, NME.COM can reveal.

Twenty-year-old Jamie-Lynn Sigler, who plays Tony Soprano’s daughter Meadow, is launching a pop career and even admits to an obsession with Lopez. Her debut album is also tipped to have a song called ‘Bada Bing’ – a reference to the strip club in ‘The Sopranos’. Another track is titled ‘Cry Baby’.

“I am obsessed with Jennifer Lopez, so everyone calls me ‘J Lynn’,” said Sigler, who added: “I listen to everything from rap, to pop, to Aretha Franklin and Whitney Houston. I’m half-Cuban, so it’s got a Latin flavour. I’m working with all kinds of producers.”
