Jennifer Lopez is stripped and glamorous in the new issue of W magazine.
JLo recently dropped her new single “Ain’t Your Mama,” but when isn’t her name in the press? If she isn’t releasing new music, she’s a judge on American Idol, performing in Las Vegas, posing for magazines and being a mom of two.
Here are several highlights from her new interview in W mag.
Juggling her career and personal life: “When it comes to work, I never get tired. But with personal failures, I have thought, this is too hard. When my marriage ended, it was not easy to find forgiveness. It wasn’t the dream that I had hoped for, and it would have been easier to fan the flames of resentment, disappointment, and anger. But Marc is the father of my children, and that’s never going away. So, I have to work to make things right. And that is, by far, the hardest work I do.”
Men vs. women: “People may now think I’m ‘nice,’ but they still act surprised when I’m smart. It’s a man’s world, and truly, people in a business setting do not value a woman as much as a man. I feel like I’m constantly having to prove myself. If a man does one thing well, people immediately say he’s a genius. Women have to do something remarkable over and over and over. People underestimate me. They always have, and maybe that’s for the best. It’s fun to prove them wrong.”
Boyfriend Casper Smart: “We got together and broke up and are now together again. I still think about getting married and having that long life with someone. I love the movie The Notebook. A dream of mine is to grow old with someone.”
They also asked her to read the lyrics to Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back”:
