Jennifer Lopez Talks Being HOMELESS, Famous Red Carpet Moment + More In W Magazine

Jennifer Lopez is giving the fashion gods all the life for her August cover of W Magazine. Adorned in a Gucci dress, Cartier earrings and a Bulgari ring Jenny from the block has the Elizabeth Taylor effect perfected. This 43- year old mother of 2 is doing it and shows no signs of slowing down. The issue hits stands July 16th…read what she had to share with the mag

 

Famous VMA Red Carpet Moment:

“We had looked at a few dresses, and nothing was right,” Lopez recalled. “My stylist said, there’s this one dress, but other people have worn it. I tried on the Versace and decided to wear it anyway. But I was still surprised by the reaction: When I came onstage with David Duchovny, who was the biggest star in the world then, he said to the audience, ‘Nobody is looking at me,’ ” Lopez said, laughing. “This loud sound started from the back of the room—it was kind of like a roar, over me in the dress. When I went to my seat, I said, ‘What’s the big deal?!’ Puffy and Benny were waiting, and they said, ‘You have to take pictures in that dress.’ ”

 

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”
