Within its inner pages, the 51-year-old opens up about JLo Beauty, performing at the 2020 Super Bowl, “that” Oscar snub for ‘Hustlers,’ and much more.
Head below for pics and quotes…
On JLo Beauty Helping Evolve What Beauty Means:
“I do feel it’s different now,” Lopez says, adding that it will be better for her children’s generation; that we are closer to a more inclusive idea of what beauty means. “But our generation is still dealing with the scars.”
On ‘Hustlers’ Oscars Snub:
“I was talking about this the other day. [My production partner] Elaine [Goldsmith-Thomas] made a post where she listed all the things I had been nominated for and won that season. And when it came to the Oscars, it was so obviously absent. It was a sting.
I was like, ‘Okay, when you’re supposedly in everybody else’s mind supposed to be nominated and you’re not, what does that mean? Is it really real? Are the other ones real and this one isn’t?’ It came to a point where I was like, ‘This is not why I do this. I don’t do this to have 10 Oscars sitting on my mantel or 20 Grammys.’
On Performing At The Super Bowl:
“It’s such a huge platform and so many people around the world are watching, and some of them have never freaking heard of you, you know what I mean?
The idea was to show the best of, not just myself as an artist, but the best of women. The best of Latinos. I felt that I represented Latinos, I represented women, and I represented people in my age group in a light that was very positive and strong.”
On Life In Lockdown:
“I mean, the first part was like, ‘Wow, this is different. I think we all were filled with anxiety. We were in the Twilight Zone, like everybody else. I started trying to do things together. We would play baseball outside or paint together,” Lopez says. “We never get to do stuff like that. I was trying to take advantage of the time.”
“I miss being creative and running on 150. But Alex, of all people, was like, ‘I love it. I love being at home. I love doing my Zooms. I love knowing the kids are there, and you’re there all the time.’ It has been actually really good. We got to work on ourselves. We did therapy. I think it was really helpful for us in our relationship.”
On Her Wedding:
“We had been planning for months and months and months, and it was overseas.
Maybe that wasn’t the right time. You start thinking of all of these things — how everything has its kind of perfect, divine moment.”
As ever, Ms. Lopez came and conquered with this epic spread!
