Jennifer Lopez Says She Is "Not Ok Being Alone"

Mar 11, 2014 12:43 PM


Jennifer Lopez cover's InStyle's April 2014 issue, and the 44-year-old singer/actress chatted with the mag about love, family and aging gracefully.

So is there a reason why she's seldom single? It certainly seems that way. “Look, I don’t love being alone," she tells the mag. "I don’t. I can’t beat myself up for that. What I have to do is figure out why I don’t like it. Why am I not OK being alone? And can I ever be OK facing that? In the past, love for me has always meant forever, and sure, you still nurse some of those fantasies, but I don’t try to force it anymore. I hung on to my fairy-tale ideals for a long time. But where I am now, what I’ve been through, there are no rules. There are just lots of ways it can turn out instead of just one. There are so many different kinds of happiness, not just the one you learned about when you were five years old.”

And speaking of five year olds, what does she have to say about her kids? "Emme is obsessed with makeup," she says of her young daughter. "She puts blush on her eyes, shadow on her face; it's very artistic. And she loves my shoes. She's been walking around in my heels ever since she was a year old." Sounds like trouble!

On aging in Hollywood, J. Lo says, “The turning point was a couple years ago, when the September issue of women’s magazines had cover girls that were all over 40 – Jennifer Aniston, Halle Berry, Sandra Bullock, Julia Roberts, me. It was hard not to be happy. That says something about our society. People who used to believe their life – or at least their life as a performer – was over at 28 or some ungodly age! God, when I think of myself back then, I had no idea who I was. I think I’m barely getting that under control now.”

Jennifer Lopez Steams Up The Screen With Ricky Martin For New Music Video "Adrenalina"

Mar 4, 2014 09:25 AM

Muy caliente!

Jennifer Lopez and Ricky Martin appear to be hot for each other in Wisin's new Spanish music video "Adrenalina", and if we didn't know better, we would think this is the real deal based on their electric chemistry!

In the vid, the Bronx-born beauty and the "She Bangs" crooner get hot and heavy with each other, and at one point, he even nibbles on her ear!

Other scenes show J.Lo shaking her booty with a bunch of backup dancers, and at 44-years-old, she's definitely still got it!

EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS - Jennifer Lopez Shows Off Her Hot Bod At American Idol Party

Feb 27, 2014 07:45 AM

Jennifer Lopez attended a post-show bash at Spago last night with her American Idol co-stars, but when she's wearing something like this, who's looking at Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr.?

The 44-year-old mother of two looked amazing in a cut-out lace dress, and we're also amazed that she was able to balance on the edge of the curb in these heels!

J. Lo didn't bring boyfriend Casper Smart; instead, she opted to take pal Leah Remini. Maybe now that the whole Scientology thing has blown over, Leah will be accompanying her longtime pal to more events?

Jennifer Lopez Likes Chaos In Relationships, Says Drowning Her Sorrows In Ice Cream Would Make Her "Throw Up"

Jan 27, 2014 11:45 AM


Jennifer Lopez covers the latest issue of Glamour UK, and inside the mag the 44-year-old singer/actress ditches her pants and shows off her enviable physique. Hot!

When asked about staying in shape, J. Lo tells the mag:

    “Mentally, I’m always thinking about it. I’m OK looking this way, but at the same time that ambitious, determined girl inside me is like, ‘Come on, let’s be in the best shape ever and really show everybody.’ Then the other side of me thinks, ‘Let’s just relax on the beach chair.’”

While she doesn't get into specifics about her relationship with Casper Smart, who is 18 years her junior, she does chat about love and relationships, revealing that she likes things a little bit crazy!

    “The dream is to have a balance where you feel you could relinquish control from time to time and still be taken care of. It’s about finding a relationship that has enough good stuff to outweigh the bad, because nobody’s perfect, right? But without the spark that conflict brings, life would be so boring. I want a bit of chaos in a relationship, but I also want a bit of safety and order.”

So what are her thoughts on junk food?

    “I’m not one to over-indulge. It doesn’t make me feel good. Some find it comforting to sit down and eat a whole pint of Haagen-Dazs, but that would make me throw up.”

Jenny from the block is still keeping it real...

J.Lo And Casper Smart Enjoy Date Night After Singer Files To Drop Ex's Last Name

Dec 6, 2013 08:40 AM


Mrs. Marc Anthony no longer!

Jennifer Lopez and boyfriend Casper Smart grabbed a romantic meal at Craig's in West Hollywood last night, and the couple seem to be going strong, which may explain why Jenny from the Block just filed papers to drop her ex-husband Marc Anthony's last name!

J.Lo submitted documents to request that her legal name be changed from Jennifer Muniz (Anthony's real last name) back to Jennifer Lopez, TMZ reports.

The American Idol judge also requested joint custody of 5-year-old twins Max and Emme, which Anthony did as well in his own papers.

Did she go back to her maiden name in hopes of becoming Mrs. Smart? Based on how happy the pair appears, we wouldn't be the least bit surprised!

Jennifer Lopez performed at the 2013 American Music Awards last night, and while Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus received a fair amount of attention for their sets, we think J. Lo deserves a little more recognition for her show-stopping tribute to Cuban artist Celia Cruz.

J. Lo wore three different outfits; first was a sexy black dress, then she rocked a rainbow frock and finally she changed into a sexy lavender number that showed off her amazing body. J. Lo was joined by a handful of dancers, including former Dancing With The Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Check out her video below!

Jennifer Lopez: I Was Told To Make "All These Changes" To My Body Early In My Career

Oct 22, 2013 12:00 PM


We're so glad she never listened!

Jennifer Lopez covers this month's issue of Cosmopolitan for Latinas, and the multitalented superstar revealed she was pressured to alter her physique early in her career.

    "Early on, my family made really made me love who I was and what I looked like. My body was nothing out of the ordinary in my neighborhood. When I first started on television [as a Fly Girl on In Living Color], people, and even my own manager at the time, would tell me I had to make all of these changes," she explained.

The brunette beauty credits her natural confidence with being able to fight back against the criticism.

    "But you have to stand up and say, 'There's nothing wrong with me or my shape or who I am, you're the one with the problem!' And when you can really believe that, all of a sudden people start believing too," she confessed.

Kim Kardashian should thank J.Lo for paving the way for booty-ful babes!
