Jennifer Lopez Opens Up About Love in 'Elle UK's October 2014 Issue: 'I Still Believe In Love'

Jennifer Lopez strikes a fierce pose on the cover of Elle UK magazine’s October 2014 issue, out on newsstands on Thursday, September 4!

Here’s what the 45-year-old superstar had to share with the mag:

On love: “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. I’ve got to hope that if I keep going I will eventually get it right.”

On whether she’s given up on looking for The One: “No! 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 her future career plans: “I like to tick a lot of boxes. I have a five-year plan. I always have a five and a 10-year plan. If this business is about anything, it’s about reinventing yourself. You have to keep moving, taking risks.”

    Jennifer has to find someone like Keith Urban ( her judging partner on American Idol) that realizes a woman’s career is as important to her as the husband or boyfriends career is to him. I think they are rare though. Anxiously awaiting American Idol Fourteen to start.

  • Victor

    OMG !! SHE IS 25 !!! NOT 45 !
    Jennifer Lopez = World’s Most Beautiful Woman !!

  • leila

    Its the same repeated interview she does about love. She should be banned from saying the word “love”

  • http://comcast Jodi

    @Victor: No Victor J Lo is 45 years old. I don’t know what her secret is but she sure looks beautiful. Love Jennifer, Keith and Harry on American Idol, best judges they have ever had, they like each other and it shows.

    @leila: You sound a bit jealous Leila and I am sure you probably have good reason to be. Jennifer is beautiful, talented, she has it all.

  • Emma

    @Audra: Obviously, she doesn’t… Not that people care but she talks about it like Love is a goal.

  • Alisha

    I wish she talked a little more about her beauty/diet regime. Her skin is firm, plump and wrinkle free. No sings of collagen loss or plastic surgery. Gwyneth is younger but looks like a senior citizen when compared to Jlo. I want Jlo’s advice not Gwyneth’s.

  • JoBeth


    If JLo were ever to read your post, I hope she’d realize the definitive words are ‘someone like’.

  • http://comcast Amber

    @ JoBeth—I was thinking the same thing, someone like !!!

  • Charlie

    @Alisha:No secret she is Spanish…all ethic people have an advantage over white people. The aging process is a lot slower, then there is also photo-shop

  • Elena


    Talented? And she has it all? That was a good one, lol! She has three divorces under her belt. Obviously her personal life is a mess.

  • She Stinks!

    And the photoshop award goes to Elle Magazine for making this old broke down no talent trashy tacky over the hill relic from the 1990s look like a white Kim Kardashian. She really need to shut up about love, she sounds even more stupid and immature, if that could be possible.

  • Elena

    Here she goes again about love and looking for the one, blah! blah!
    I guess it’a time to promote something again lol! How many times has she given the same interview? She will do anything to keep her name in the press since nothing else works. Her album tanked and her career is dead.

    Jennifer why don’t you quit talking about love/relationships!! Stay single for awhile and enjoy the moment with your kids because before you know it they will be out about looking for love…. hopefully your kids will not follow your footsteps and choose some of the men you chose.

  • Ana

    she does look stunning. Just look at pictures of her from the VMA recently.. no photoshop there. Her body seriously look like its 20 – not 43!

  • Jules

    Some women just have a sexy back.

  • British Latin American

    @Charlie: Another ignorant American. Spaniards are Europeans, and are just as ethnic or not ethnic as everyone else in the world.
