Glamour magazine named Jennifer Lopez its 2011 Woman of the Year. We’re not exactly sure why. While she certainly looks hot on their magazine cover, we wonder exactly what singles her out among all the celebrities who can rock a red bustier.
Frankly Jennifer seems to be fumbling a lot, on a personal level. Her marriage fell apart, she’s dating again (but claims she’s not) and she’s got that American Idol stint… but so what? It’s not like’s found the cure for breast cancer or donated all her earnings to feed starving children around the world.
But maybe women can relate to that? Especially when she sounds so gosh-darn sincere and real. Like when asked about her love life, she flutters her eyelashes and says: “I think to give something a chance, to really get to know somebody, you want to do it out of the public eye. You know the media—they want to rush everything.”
So it’s a good quote, and basically means “back off and let me live my life” but it’s not exactly Buddha’s Eightfold Path to Enlightment.
But she did dish out the Great Truth on Where to Shop, or “insert-plug-for-the-new-fashion-line: “The things I liked when I was, like, 16 and in the Bronx—jeans, cut-up T-shirts—I still like. But I’ve been exposed to so much now from traveling the world and seeing couture clothes. I used all of that when I created my new line for Kohl’s. My style has come from everything, from where I started to where I am today.”
That’s, like, so profound.
