JENNIFER LOPEZ On COSMOPOLITAN For LATINAS!!!

Singer/Dancer/Model/Fashion Designer JENNIFER LOPEZ covers the WINTER 2014 Issue of COSMOPOLITAN For LATINAS!!!

Check out a few highlights;

On her Latina inspiration:

“I was really moved watching ‘West Side Story’ as a young girl and seeing Puerto Ricans star in it. Even though it wasn’t the best depiction of us, they still have the passion and love that I relate to – not to mention the singing and dancing! Rita Moreno became a hero to me.”

On her body’s insecurities:

“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. 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.”

On being Latina:

“I love the people that I grew up in, the strength and passion and the heart that we bring to things and then the way I was raised – the intense love we demonstrate.”

On conquering stage fright:

“One day somebody told me I had to perform in front of 35,000 people on the set of ‘Selena.’ I didn’t know how to do it. I just said to myself: Don’t think about it. You can do this and you’ll be great. I walked out onto the stage. And then I did. I’ve been following that rule ever since.”
