Jennifer Lopez Covers Harper's Bazaar February 2013!
Jennifer Lopez on balancing Hollywood life with having a family: ‘I think I can just handle more than the average bear’
Jennifer Lopez and her toyboy lover Casper Smart may have an 18 years age difference, but when you are in love, age is just a number, believes JLo.
In an interview with Harper's Bazaar magazine, JLo gushes about her boyfriend of one year, saying he has become her best friend. "He's fantastic; he's like my best friend. I can tell him everything, when I'm feeling down, when I'm feeling good. He gives moral support, endless love and support."
And the age difference is never a hurdle for the couple, as JLo says her mental age is just between 16 and 18. "That's when I became the person that I am. Even though I didn't realize the whole journey I would go on, I still feel all that youthfulness," she told the magazine.
Singer is glammed up in metallics on the latest cover of Harper's Bazaar. She dished about beau Casper Smart, her twin 4-year-olds with ex Marc Anthony, and keeping it together on the road.
Superstar Jennifer Lopez says life as an “American Idol” judge wasn’t cutting it, despite the $35 million paycheck she earned for her first two seasons on the show.
“I’m not a judge for a living,” she explained to Harper’s Bazaar from Istanbul, in between gigs of her recent world tour.
“I’m a singer. I’m a dancer. I’m a performer. I’m an actress,” the 43-year-old Lopez said.
And when it comes to juggling all of that — and balancing superstardom with motherhood — she’s not giving any of it up.
“I think I can just handle more than the average bear, you know?”
Luckily, her boyfriend Casper Smart is there to help. He lovingly dotes on her two kids, 4-year-old twins Max and Emme, fathered by Marc Anthony.
“He’s fantastic, he’s like my best friend,” Lopez said of her much-younger beau and backup dancer.
“I can tell him everything, when I’m feeling good. He gives moral support, endless love and support,” she told Harper’s Bazaar.
Lopez graces the cover of the fashion mag’s February issue.
Decked out in metallic gladiator stilettos and a Fendi minidress as loud as a disco ball, the singer says real life packs just as much shine as her glitzy wardrobe.
“I like the whole idea of traveling, of looking good, and doing it well,” she says. “I make it as simple and as beautiful as I can because my life is kind of big.”
So are her fashion statements — most notoriously the plunging Versace gown she wore to the 2000 Grammy Awards, which Smart tells her is “the most famous dress you’ve ever worn.”
Lopez says she still has the gown at home.
“The other day, my housekeeper put it on a mannequin in my spa, where I get my hair and makeup done,” she said. “She sent me a picture. She was like, ‘You like this dress?’ Um yeah, but I don’t know if I like it out in the house!”
Lopez is adamant about some things — like making her own decisions. And that translates to her family, and keeping them involved in her life and travels.
“So I pack my luggage, or dress myself, or comb my kids’ hair, pick up their clothes — that makes our life beautiful, you know? There’s something very elegant in that.”
