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?'"
CeeLo Green's controversial views on rape (via Twitter) led to the cancellation of his reality show earlier today! Get the deets inside and see Jeezy shares his thoughts on the police involvement in Ferguson listen to T.I. diss Floyd Mayweather on the "Am I Wrong" (REMIX)...
HUGE developments in the world of CeeLo Green. You'll recall that the former coach on "The Voice" was accused of sexual assault a few months ago after a female acquaitance claimed he slipped her an ecstasy pill in 2012.
On August 29th, the "F*ck U" singer pleaded no contest to one felony count of furnishing ecstasy to the woman and was sentenced to serve probation and community service - but that's when his REAL problems began.
Maybe he was feeling himself, but the last thing CeeLo should have done was got on Twitter. Shortly after the court verdict, instead of counting his blessings, CeeLo got on Twitter and posted some views on "rape" that PISSED off a lot of people. The tweets have been deleted (of course) but he posted:
And this will REALLY make you gag: “People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!”
NEGATIVE react was swift and went all the way up the chain of command at TBS which "was" the home of his reality show "CeeLo Green’s The Good Life.” After the backlash on social media, the network chose to CANCEL the show.
In other music news....
Atlanta native Jeezy finds himself on the cover of the sought after 2014 Power 30/SOURCE360 issue this year. The rapper, who's currently on tour with Wiz Khalifa, was recently arrested for gun possession, but now that he's bonded out of jail - he's ready to hit the airwaves again.
During the interview, he reveals why this has been one of the most important years of his career, talks about cops and Ferguson, MO ("They did all the wrong things") and even says he auditioned to be Tupac in the “Holler If You Hear Me” musical (I came to New York, auditioned and everything. Ol’ man was going to be on Broadway). The 2014 Power 30/SOURCE360 issue hits newsstands soon, in the meantime, here are the highlights:
On being a gangster rapper in 2014:
I think me and people like me that answered the call, and were appointed by the people to be their spokesperson have to walk a separate line because, you might like my music, but I think you probably love me more for what I stand for and what my morals are. So I think that’s what makes me special, and different from a lot of artists, because you know we got some people where their whole career is off pure talent. They’re very talented but they don’t have any morals, or the ability to go sit outside and watch something, and then be able to go talk about it in a rhyme form and make you believe it. Everything is so internet based now, you don’t even know what to believe anymore.
I just feel like, when things like this happen, you have to build trust within the community. They did all the wrong things. Instead of going there and trying to resolve the situation, they went in there with tasers, riot guns and riot forces, and you can’t come to my neighborhood and not expect us to stand up for what we believe in. You know, that type of sh*t happens in Iraq, that doesn’t happen in Ferguson.
On auditioning to be Tupac on Broadway:
Jeezy was almost Tupac. No, he didn’t go to the tattoo parlor and stop just short of getting “Thug Life” tattooed across his stomach, but when it came to cast the Tupac character in the short-lived Tupac musical, “Holler If You Hear Me”, Jeezy read for the part and earnestly competed to land it.I came to New York, auditioned and everything. Ol’ man was going to be on Broadway, man [laughs].
