Jennifer Lopez COVERS ELLE UK’s October 2014 Issue—Talks Love, Failed Relationships & Her Twins
Jennifer Lopez is gracing the cover of ELLE UK’s October issue. Find out what the fab over forty singer said about her past relationships and more inside…
Jennifer Lopez is the cover girl for ELLE UK’s October 2014 issue. And the A.K.A singer is serving up some effortless fab.
Shot by by photographer Txema Yeste, JLo schools the newcomers on how to slay a magazine spread as she posed it up at Château de Voisins in Paris. The 45-year-old singer/actor stunned in Versace gowns and accessorized her looks with Laura Lee Jewellery and Lock & Co Hatters for her spread. And of course, she served up at least one booty-ful editorial for the masses.
In the cover story, JLo opens up about still believing in love and one day finding her prince charming that she will spend the rest of her life with. She also talked about her past mistakes in her public relationships (Diddy, Marc Anthony, etc.), learning from those mistakes and being a single mother to her 6-year-old twins Emme and Max.
Here are the highlights:
On still believing in love:
"I still believe in love. The nirvana man, he's out there somewhere. But you just have to work at it. You have to work at everything."
On mistakes she has made in her past relationships:
"Everybody has seen that I make mistakes. Every single album I have ever made is about love. But I am not going to give up. I have to look at what I do wrong. I rush in, I get swept up, I ignore the signs. But so many of us are guilty of these things. Each time it goes wrong, it's hard. I get really hurt but I have to let myself go: 'What did I do? What can I learn?' And as hard and as hurtful as things get, I want to believe I will be able to go one step higher," she says. "I've got to hope that if I keep going I will eventually get it right."
On the public’s interest in her relationships:
"Is it worth making mistakes, in my case in public, and trying to figure out what you do and balance everything and constantly grow? I'd say yes," she tells the magazine. "None of it is easy, none of it is safe—you are going to get big highs and you are going to get big lows, so it's not for everyone—but that's exciting. You just need to believe in yourself."
On being a single mother:
"It's not easy. I'm from a traditional background. It takes two people to make a kid for a reason. It's tough because I know they feel the void of that male presence," says Lopez, who was most recently linked to Maksim Chmerkovskiy. "When Marc and I first broke up, I did think, 'I wish I could have held this together.' But when you realize it's not the right thing for anybody, you think, 'OK, well how do we make this work, how do we make this better, how do we make this great for the children anyway?'"
