Jennifer Lopez defended her body in the latest issue of Cosmopolitan for Latinas and I’m just wondering, ugh, why? Why does she have to defend her body? Who is asking her to? Especially her, she has an insane body. How are we not past this? Why do we hate women? Or is J.Lo just mad she didn’t “win” Esquire’s “Sexiest Woman Alive”?
ANYWAY here’s what she told the mag (via USA Today):
When I first started on television (as a Fly Girl on In Living Color), people, and even my own manager at the time, would tell me I had to make all of these changes. But you have to stand up and say, ‘There’s nothing wrong with me or my shape or who I am. You’re the one with the problem!’ And when you can really believe that, all of a sudden other people start believing, too.
Early on, my family really made me love who I was and what I looked like. My body was nothing out of the ordinary in my neighborhood.
You know what the most frustrating thing about this is? The magazine touched up her photos. Because that’s what magazines do. Because even “women with curves” can’t have too many curves. I mean people freak out over a woman in a coat. No one is happy with anything.
The photos from her magazine shoot are below, as well as a candid from the set in which I gotta say, she looks BANGIN.
