Jennifer Lopez covers American Glamour December 2011 (Kristen Stewart covers the British edition this month). In the issue, we’re told something we knew already. All those husbands just served as a reminder that Jennifer Lopez loves Jennifer Lopez. And Jennifer Lopez really needs to put Jennifer Lopez and her feelings before the feelings of the next random who can afford a double-digit carat ring. Lopez is giving more trite life-lessons as though these are recent revelations when she’s a 42-year-old, multiple divorcee, single-mother of two chirrens (who, I happily admit, looks f**king FABULOUS on the cover… she’s drowned in chunky jewellery, but I still dig it enough to ignore the too-tight pants with reverse poop flap that look like footed pyjamas she put on backwards).
- On dating again: ‘I think to give something a chance, to really get to know somebody, you want to do it out of the public eye. You know the media… they want to rush everything.’
- On what she’s learned from her past mistakes: ‘I think I’ve finally learned the biggest lesson of all. You’ve got to love yourself first. You’ve got to be okay on your own before you can be okay with somebody else. You’ve got to value yourself and know that you’re worth everything. And until you value yourself enough and love yourself enough to know that, you can’t really have a healthy relationship.’
- On fashion and shilling for Kohl’s: ‘The things I liked when I was, like, 16 and in the Bronx… jeans, cut-up T-shirts… I still like. But I’ve been exposed to so much now from traveling the world and seeing couture clothes. I used all of that when I created my new line for Kohl’s. My style has come from everything, from where I started to where I am today.’
