Jennifer Lopez Is a Golden Glamazon on February Harper’s Bazaar Cover
Jennifer Lopez covers the February issue of Harper's Bazaar, and she's a gilded goddess and a glamazon. But then again, when isn't she?
"I'm a singer. I'm a dancer. I'm a performer. I'm an actress," La Lopez told the fashion mag about the many hats she wears. She's also a former 'American Idol' judge, but does it look like it bothers her that she's been replaced? Not even a little bit! She got outta dodge before the wigs started flying.
The superstar, who can also list fashion designer, fashionista and perfumer on her resume, in addition to being a mom of twins who will turn 5 in February, keeps things as simple as possible in order to survive the beautiful chaos that is her life.
"I make it as simple and as beautiful as I can because my life is kind of big," the diva, 43, stated. "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." Elegant, yes? Maternal? Yep. Just like the rest of us? 100 percent!
In the feature, her mother Guadalupe, who tutors the twins while on tour, makes an appearances and offers the funniest statement of the whole piece.
"These people were like, 'You know J. Lo?'" she said."I made J. Lo!"
Now we know were La Lopez gets her spunk from -- her mama!
Their relationship is close. "Last night I was so tired, and having to do a concert was daunting, you know?" Lopez says. "But Mom just said, 'Close your eyes,' and she held my hand the entire way over."
And as for those adorbs twins, sired by her ex Marc Anthony? Well, their mom says, "They are used to being around a lot of people. They're open, happy, curious, smart, loving, affectionate." Not to mention rambunctious.
They also keep Lopez young. Even at 43, she lists her mental age as "16 to 18."
She explained, "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."
Lopez feels young. She looks it, too.
