Jennifer Lopez Covers 'Vogue' April 2012

Jennifer Lopez is ravishing in red on the cover of Vogue magazine’s April issue.

Here’s what the 42-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On starting out being insecure: “I think of myself on that day at the studio on Long Island and how insecure I was about my own talent. I just never really gave myself any credit. And because of that, nobody else did either. You mirror what the world mirrors to you.”

On ex Marc Anthony giving her confidence: “He always told me what a beautiful voice I have. He was like, ‘It’s in there; you just gotta let it out. It’s a confidence thing with you.’ Then all of a sudden one day I was like, I’m good at this!”

On parenting: “They do something to you where you want to do everything right for them…And obviously no parent does everything right. It’s this weird thing that happens where you are striving to be as good as you can be so that they turn out well. And that requires that you be a really great, evolved, aware person in every moment. Which is pretty awesome. But it’s also putting tremendous pressure on yourself—which is why women feel so guilty!”

    JLO is just saying what she thinks sounds good to you. She is a lying wonder! If you wanna do the best for your kids, stay with their dad and work it out. Parading a new man who is basically a stranger shows them they don’t have all of your attention and neither did their dad. Honey you are speaking volumes while lying to yourself-you change men like you do clothes!

  • Karen

    LOL no “women don’t feel guilty” only she does because she never spends time with her kids… instead she’s always with that boy toy

  • Sam

    Yeah we already saw this when they randomly showed it on Idol… 0_o

  • bebe

    She’s beautiful, but more importantly she seems to have a beautiful personality….reading her answers made me a bit sad…I can relate:)

  • KissThis

    not be mean but I’m getting so tired of JLo… she’s everywhere these days, which is great for her, but when I open a magazine there she is, on tv commercials – there she is and then there’s american Idol, movies and magazine covers. It’d just be nice to see some fresh, new talent out there too!

  • Mush!!!

    She makes sense to me!!

  • JLo rent

    3 divorces already? What a loser. Does she ever spend time with her kids? ( and I don’t mean for pr photo shoots) She is the last person who should be giving advice about motherhood! What a joke.

  • She is my idol

    I admire J.Lo for not staying with Marc. The jerk carried on an affaire with Jada Pinkett Smith while they were on the tv show ‘hawthorne’. She could have stayed and play dumb like other women celebs, but she decided to respect herself and move on.

  • lexy hates bilson

    LMAO!! Marc must have REALLY wanted to get laid to tell her she had could sing!!
    Is she wearing the clothing she “designs” for Kohls?? Or is she wearing REAL designer clothes and wants the normal people to buy the cheap crap she’s hawking so she can pay for HER designer clothes and nanny!!

  • camillus

    Loser, Who_e, Douch Bag, can’t this fame Who_e stay off TV Her Kohl’s commercial sucks, Her Fiat Commercials sucked, she can’t sing, can’t dance and don’t even talk about her acting. can’t she stay covered from head to toe ie body bag.

  • Wow_dude

    wow, she is amazing. And the interview is a great read. she is one of the biggest stars on the planet. I hope she will chose some amazing roles this years and will remember everybody that she is a great actress afterall! I loved her in Out of Sight, U Turn, The Cell…It is time to get some edgy new roles!!!!

    Can’t wait for the new single Dance Again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • She Stinks!

    Marc told her she had a beautiful voice? What a lie! Insecure about her own talent? B*tch has no talent! Did the team of nannies answer the parenting question? This low class no talent lying piece of fake gutter trash cannot stop lying. Her photos are so photoshopped, its ridiculous. Just shut up you old HO and go back to the stroll.

  • solecito

    Whether you like her or not, there’s no denying she’s gorgeous.

  • Darren

    Even with all the cosmetic surgeries, skin bleaching and blond weaves they still had to phtoshop this tranny Rican.

    @KissThis: After reading the cover title, which I won’t be buying…
    “…On divorce, motherhood & looking fabulously fit.” I say, Who gives a s***? Seriously? Finally, Marc divorces her after she’s been dumped many times before while she’s banging someone new. Motherhood? When & where? Every picture I see is her is with that kid & the nannies with the babies. Looking! Key work Looking! Fabulous. Sure, Airbrushing, computer tricks of Photoshop & expensive make up artists, to boot. Yeah, you’ve suckered me in alright.

    The only reason why she SEEMS to be on “top” is because she has no Latin AMERICAN competition. If Salma Hayek or Shakira were American this fraud would be nowhere to be found. Until they discover someone who looks as good as she does with her charisma BUT WITH TALENT, she won’t go away anytime soon. SMDH.

  • JO

    I would love to know who the photo wizards are because they did a miraculous job. Do you honestly think, for one second, that she looks like that? I’ve seen her in person (at a boutique) with a tank top & shorts. She is nothing to look at. Trust me. She’s looks like any other Latina in New York.
