JLo, on marriage and growing up

Jennifer Lopez has opened up about how her views on relationships have evolved over time. In love with former baseball player Alexander Rodriguez, the singer has spoken about how she used to view romance through a traditional lens. “I grew up with the fairy tale, ‘A prince is going to save you’,” she tells Red magazine. “‘Wait for true love and that’s what makes you happy.’”

Lopez has been married three times, with her most recent marriage to singer Marc Anthony lasting a decade. The popstar has two children with Anthony, 10-year-old twins Maximilian David and Emme Maribel. Lopez expressed her pride in her daughter for learning how to value her self-worth at such a young age. “Well, let me tell you, my daughter is eons above me already,” the singer says. “She said to me when she was eight, ‘I don’t know if I want to get married, mummy.’ And when she said that I was like, ‘YES!’ because I’ve been teaching her to love herself since she was little.”

Promoting her latest film Second Act, JLo said, “Women are said to be the more fragile, sensitive gender, but I think the truth is that men are much more fragile and sensitive,” the performer told Vanity Fair.

“And we have to be stronger and more conscious of not hurting fragile egos at times.” — The Independent
