This one almost writes itself, really, I know. Jennifer Lopez is a lot of things – a superstar and diva, a great dancer, a mediocre actress, a lady with a legendary ass… but a great singer is not one of those things. It’s okay – we can’t be good at everything! Still, it’s pretty funny that she’s admitted that she was “insecure” about singing, because anyone who has heard Jennifer Lopez sing probably understands why she felt that way. She’s not the worst singer, and autotune does her good, but it’s not her life’s calling.
“It was after I had kids to be honest…The biggest insecurity I had was my singing. Even though I had sold 70 million records, there was this feeling like, I’m not good at this. And while I was married to Marc, he helped me get over it. He kept telling me, ‘You’re the only one holding yourself back from reaching your full potential as a singer. You have to let go’…
I was always so insecure and just kind of going along. Then I grew, little by little, and realized, wait a minute, this is not a fluke. I’m not a mistake – I work my ass off. And I know what I’m doing.”
She’s certainly better than a lot of other popstars out there and she has some catchy tunes, so I can’t hate there. Plus, a bit of self-confidence is always good.
PS: How much do Max and Emme look like Marc Anthony? Holy moly.
