Jennifer Lopez: ‘I Believe in Love…It’s Still My Biggest Dream.’

Jennifer Lopez looks STUNNING on the cover of Vanity Fair’s September issue.  Inside, she’s giving her first interview since announcing her separation from husband Marc Anthony. Half of the interview was done before they announced their divorce, but it sounds like she already knew the end was coming.  Highlights below:

On marriage with Marc:

“We try, we try. “[But] it’s getting increasingly harder. When we were [first] married, most of the time, and even before the babies were born, we were able to go everywhere together. I wasn’t working as much. So we kind of had that. I went on tour with him a few times in the first few years of our marriage, and we did a film [El Cantante] together. It’s hard, and we’re figuring it out. It’s tough.  

“And everything is ramping up in a way. Like I said, we had the first three years of our marriage just for us. I wasn’t working, it was mainly about him. Then we got pregnant. Then it became about the kids. And then I started working again.  Marriage is tough. It’s not going to be perfect…It’s definitely challenging.”

On having a happy marriage:

“That was my biggest dream, and I really worked hard at it. We both did.  Sometimes it doesn’t work—and that’s sad. But I remain an eternal optimist about love. I believe in love.  It’s still my biggest dream. I am positive—determined to move forward with my life, bring up my babies, and do the best job I can as a mother, entertainer, and person. I now look forward to new challenges. I feel strong.”

On learning to love herself:

“I’m a hopeless romantic and passionate person when it comes to love.  It’s not that I didn’t love myself before. Sometimes we don’t realize that we are compromising ourselves. To understand that a person is not good for you, or that that person is not treating you in the right way, or that he is not doing the right thing for himself—if I stay, then I am not doing the right thing for me. I love myself enough to walk away from that now.”

On Marc Anthony:

“I will always respect Marc as a singer and performer.  We actually work great together, and he was always very supportive. Together we could make magic—and we did. He will always be in our lives. He will always hold a special place in my heart as the father of my children.”

On acting and singing:

“I think I’m a really great performer. I think I’m a really great actress. I feel confident in those things—that’s a better way to say it. I’m not as gifted a vocalist as some of the girls that are out there, but I know I communicate. It’s like all that hard work and now something permanent is going to be there.  I made my mark.”

J. Lo may go through men like socks, but at least she’s honest.  I think that’s diva behavior. The issue hits stands tomorrow, 8/3.

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony Split

This is just sad. Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony are calling it quits after seven years of marriage and bringing beautiful twins Max and Emme into the world. The couple has released a joint statement to People magazine saying the following:

“We have decided to end our marriage. This was a very difficult decision. We have come to an amicable conclusion on all matters.[…]It is a painful time for all involved, and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time.”

Now this is one of the Hollywood marriages that I just really wanted to work. Let’s not forget the split rumors back in 09′ that they shot down after all the buzzing. Seems there was tons of truth in it. #Hollywood

Is anyone else shocked??!!

There is no stopping the force that is J.Lo. This beautiful diva is releasing her ninth fragrance called “Love & Light” and will also be starring in a new movie. Not to mention having a new album out,  judging on one of the biggest shows ever “American Idol” and being a mommy.

When asked about her new fragrance she says,

‘With Love & Light, I wanted to create a fragrance that was less about the world around you and more about your inner light and your spirit,’ she said in a press release. ‘It’s about how you feel inside, it’s not about your outside world.’

Unconventional Rules the Billboard Charts

Numbers are in for the previous week’s album sales, and it looks like a congratulations are in order for some guys.

Funny guys The Lonely Island have landed at the #3 spot with 68,000 copies sold of Turtleneck and Chain, the follow-up to Incredibad, which debuted at the #13 spot in 2009. Chain features collaborations with Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Akon and more.  Two spots behind is Odd Future’s Tyler, the Creator, whose sophomore effort Goblin debuted at the number 5 spot with 50,000k sold.  A very excited Tyler tweeted the following after seeing the numbers for himself:

“I AM THAT NI**A RIGHT NOW FUCK HARD WORK PAYED OFF YOU CANT TELL ME SHIT NI**UH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” exclaimed an excitedTyler. “50k Is So Much. Like, For Me, Maybe Not To You Guys Whos Used To Mariah Or BOB Selling Millions. Damn, This Is Fucking Wild Fuck.”

He’s so “eloquent.” Adele’s 21 remains in the top spot for the 8th week in a row.  Jennifer Lopez’s LOVE? dropped from 5-9 with another 33,000 sold.

Congrats to Tyler and The Lonely Island on their incredible debuts.


Jennifer Lopez Makes Billboard Top 10 Debut

Did Jennifer Lopez fans show her any LOVE? on the Billboard charts?…

Not really.  Her seventh studio album made a lack-luster debut at the #5 spot with 83,000 copies sold.  Adele’s already multiplatinum album 21 remains in the top spot.  The Beastie Boys follow and  have scored their sixth top 10 album (Hot Sauce Committee Part 2) with 128,000 copies sold.  Other artists in the Billboard top 10 are Sade and Musiq Soulchild.  The Ultimate Collection lands at the #7 spot with 38,000 units and Soulchild’s MusicIntheMagiq debuts in the #8 spot with 35,000.

Adele is killing the competition right now.

Do you have any of these albums yet.


Video: Jennifer Lopez Shows Jay Leno “LOVE”

American Idol judge and all around entertainer Jennifer Lopez sat down with Jay Leno to talk about her new album LOVE?, being named People’s Most Beautiful Person in the World, her once difficult relationship with her mother, her least and favorite body parts, her new bilingual show with her husband, and her come-up days.  My favorite part is when Jay Leno showed footage of her dancing back up for New Kids on the Block back in 1991…damn! J-Lo was getting DOWN!  I also found it interesting about how she describes the album’s subject as looking at love from the outside in…I’ve only seen dance tracks so far.  Guess we have to buy the album to get to the true meaning.  Smart move, Miss Lopez.
