Jennifer Lopez Covers 'W' Magazine August 2013

Jennifer Lopez Covers 'W' Magazine August 2013

Jennifer Lopez goes ultra-glam on the cover of W magazine’s August 2013 issue, on newsstands July 16.

Here’s what the 43-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On being close to her childhood home in The Bronx for the interview: “The last time I was in there was when my mom and dad called us home to tell us they were separating after 33 years of marriage. I think that’s why I was nervous about coming here today. It’s like seeing someone from the past—you’re afraid to run into them because you never know if it’s going to be ‘wow’ or very difficult. This is a combination of both.”

On her and her mother’s relationship: “My mom and I butted heads. I didn’t want to go to college—I wanted to try dance full-time. I was homeless. But I told her ‘This is what I have to do.’”

On parenting her kids Max and Emme: “I think a lot about teaching my kids to work hard. I’ve learned something about kids—they don’t do what you say; they do what you do. I watched my parents.”

    Not a pretty cover at all. What’s with that look? It’s almost if she’s trying too hard to look sexy.

  • Right

    From prostitute to so-called singer…

  • Mekia

    She looks amazing!!! i love the darker hair.. back to her original roots!

  • Elena

    So tired of her! Is she trying to look like a movie star? LOL! Her movies flop, her music fails, why is she on magazine covers? And what she says about kids is so true, they watch their parents actions and judge. At least they have their father’s legacy to be proud of.

  • Frenchy

    This is the original Jennifer Lopez – the Fly Girl. Not loving the cover but hopefully the editorials are better.

  • maya

    if the kids as u said don’t do what you say but thet do what u do so u’re the bad exemple for them coz you teach they see u making a relationship with someone who could be u’re son so plz do talk about teaching

    i love how she looks and the true is that she looks better than few week ago

  • just saying

    Shut up and actually PARENT your kids Jennifer, and stop hoeing around. You are never with your kids, they are with nannies.

  • you


    every single time.

  • Isabella

    The older she gets the more she looks like an aging Puerto Rican man in full drag. All of the skin bleaching, nose jobs and various other surgeries did little to alter the fact that JLO is morphing into a Jose.

  • Lupe

    I guess Casper 5 minutes are up.She stopped talking about him and hanging less and less with her beard.Um ..I mean her boyfriend.Watch out Jlo is on the prowl for her next victim!

  • Henry

    YUCK! ben certainly dodged a bullet didn’t he? She is really very ugly even with the makeup.

  • Rosa

    Who cares! She always hated being a Puerto Rican anyway and distanced herself away until Affleck dumped her and her career fell off. She is a nobody who can’t even make a TV movie worth watching.

  • She Stinks!

    Just shut up you untalented classless trash. Your time is over, go back to obscurity and pretend you like being a mother. It doesn’t even look like JHO Bag, her morphing into an older white woman is near complete. Just a few more nose jobs and skin bleaching treatments.

  • Castilian

    @Rosa: Can you blame her! teaching her kids not to work hard is the inferior PuertoRican way of life it is their culture or at least what little culture they have.

  • Paloozi

    You are an ignorant piece of shit.

  • Honeywest

    I like the cover somewhat but she is alright looking. I guess Casper’s 15 minutes of fame is over, she don’t talk about him much anymore and he’s not in the spotlight alot. Gravy train is about to end baby! I told you it wasn’t gonna last very long. What you need to do is parent your kids instead of hangin around some 26 yr. old who hasn’t got a pot to piss in and no kind of future with you or the kids. She claims she wants to marry this piece of trash and have a baby? Are you out of your mind? I think so! She needs psychological help seriously! No wonder her and her mother had a fallin out, she don’t listen to her, it’s obvious how she is. It’s ridiculous how she thinks when she’s smitten with men. He’s not even husband or father material. The point is you’ll be supporting him and the kids! Which is what you’re doing right now. He’s old enough to be her son for god sake! Get Help!

  • Elena

    As long as she stays away from Marc Anthony. She has this habit of running to him every time her life or career are not going well and ruining his personal life.

  • Susie#1

    She looks like she’s a 60 year old woman trying to look 35. She just looks cheap. I do agree with Isabella, that the older she gets the more she looks like an aging Puerto Rican drag queen (but I think it’s an insult to the queens.)

    She looks pretty. She is a very talented dancer. Any celebrity that has the ability to convince the show biz community to pay them “A” list bucks, for mediocre “C’ list talent, deserves the money. I am deadly serious. Make it do what it do Jennifer!
