Jennifer Lopez lands the latest cover of People Magazine. Wow, those are horrific bangs. She’s also proclaiming she HAS NO REGRETS! Who cares?
American Idol premieres tonight, without her. She reportedly turned down a $17 million offer to return. What for? She wants to focus on other career opportunities. You must have some serious balls (and an enormous bank account) if you turn down $17 million for one season of American Idol. Was it really that bad?
In the People interview, Jennifer opens up about her boyfriend, 25-year-old Casper Smart. She claims he helped her recover from her tough divorce (I bet he did!). She says she can’t believe he sticks with her – and doesn’t go get himself a younger girlfriend. Seriously JLo?
When Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony split in 2011 after seven years of marriage and two children together, the singer says it felt like “her whole world fell apart.”
But Lopez, 43, credits her boyfriend, choreographer and dancer Casper Smart, 25, with helping her heal after divorce.
“I just got out of a big, heavy, devastating thing, and he’s helped me heal,” she says in this week’s issue of PEOPLE. “He’s been there for me.”
But the singer is well aware that the 18-year age difference between the two draws speculation.
“I ask him, ‘Why don’t you go find a young girlfriend and get out of here? What do you want with me?’ And you think, ‘How long is this gone be?’ You think, ‘Okay, in 10 years I’m going to be like this and you’re going to be like that’ and … men at that age are … I think all different things. The truth is we don’t know what’s going to happen. We’re loving this moment right now. We make each other happy.”
Even after several larger-than-life romances that played out in the public eye, Lopez regrets nothing.
“I don’t regret those things – that’s who I am,” she says. “But at least now I’m at a point where I have to recognize that these choices and things that happen are partly because of me and my decisions and I have to be more careful. So I am being more careful.”
In other Jennifer news, Access Hollywood asked how she felt about the huge success of ex-boyfriend, Ben Affleck’s new movie, ‘Argo’. She said “I’m always rooting for him. We went through a rough time at a certain point and it was like we couldn’t get a break, and now to see him be successful and getting what he deserves for what he did made me feel really good.” Well isn’t that big of her.
