Jennifer Lopez looks pretty on the cover the April 2012 issue of Vogue magazine in a dress from Bottega Veneta’s spring 2012 collection. She chats it up with the magazine on various topics from her twins, work and her tenderoni boyfriend.
On twins Max and Emme: “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…By nature I am not tough, believe it or not. No. I am a lover. And with my kids I am even softer. I realize with my son, I have to sometimes be tough, especially now when he’s pushing boundaries. With my daughter, I can get a little stern with her and she pretty much will listen. But my son will just scream and yell and run. I’m like, Aaaaah, what do I do with this?!”
On what she has to say about her 24-year-old boyfriend: “Not muc. He’s adorable. But you already see that. He is [sweet]. He really is. He’s a good egg. I don’t want to talk about it too much. It’s my private thing.”
Her longtime manager and friend Benny Medina gives own take on Jennifer’s track record as a serial monogamist: “The thing that I always sort of wished is that she would give herself time to just naturally meet someone instead of having nearly obsessive guys pursue her. The ease with which that obsession becomes a relationship I think sometimes works against her ability to have a real meaningful relationship. And she never half does anything. When she commits to anything in her work, her life, or her relationships, she is in it. I’m not telling you anything I haven’t told her. And I think to her detriment, the will of Jennifer is so strong that she believes that it can actually change who someone is and how they relate to her.”
