Jennifer Lopez dazzles the cover of August’s W magazine.
Lopez proves that she has aged like a fine wine; she has only gotten better with age.The always glamorous actress/singer/entrepreneur opens up to the magazine and shares a lighter side of herself by going back to her childhood home in the Bronx, New York.
Lopez touches on her upbringing. She reveals that for a time in her life she was unstable with no real place to call home. At the rebellious age of 18, Lopez decided to leave home against her mother’s wishes, to pursue a career in dance. “My mom and I butted heads, I didn’t want to go to college—I wanted to try dance full-time. So she and I had a break. I started sleeping on the sofa in the dance studio. I was homeless, but I told her, ‘This is what I have to do.’ A few months later, I landed a job dancing in Europe. When I got back, I booked In Living Color. I became a Fly Girl and moved to L.A. It all happened in a year.”
She also dishes on what a workaholic she is. During this particular interview she was in the midst of promoting a new single, “Live it up”, working on a new fragrance, Jlove, designing for her Kohl’s clothing line and being a full time mother. Above all else, Lopez is dedicated to her 5 year old twins, Max and Emme. She is determined to show them the value of hard work. “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. My dad worked nights, and I was aware of how much he was doing for us. My mom was a Tupperware lady and also worked at the school. I always felt that I couldn’t let them down. And I had a natural discipline from early on. I was always training for something.”
