Jennifer Lopez covers InStyle Magazine September 2012 with whom she doesn’t really address The Slum Bear because Instyle, unlike Vogue, has some standards (this isn’t ‘InSlum Magazine’). The 43-year-old, who forgot to flat iron a little closer to her roots, tells the magazine she likes ‘sweet’ ‘good guys’ who wait for her to get home so they can do their sex shopping together.
- On how she gets through struggles: ‘I live by the mantra that God doesn’t give you anything you can’t handle. You realize that those difficult moments, the times when you feel pain, are when you do a lot of your growing. You realize: There’s no reason to be terrified of things. Either way I’m going to be OK. At this point in my life. I’ve learned I can really survive things.’
- On why she’s still slumming: ‘The hard part is that you never stop believing in love. But that’s also the best part. You never stop believing, and you never, ever give up.’
- On the pressure to be a good mother: ‘I feel the pressures of wanting to be a great parent and of wanting to do right by my children. Being a mom, or a dad, is the most important job there is. It doesn’t matter who you are. You have to embrace it for everything that it is.’
- On how she makes her life work: ‘Finding balance … You have to know what makes you happy, so your life is what you always dreamed it could be.’
- On men in general: ‘The most important quality the man in my life should have is that he is sweet. I like the good guys.’
