Why Jennifer Lopez really wants you to look at her

Hot Houses: Check out three unbelievably luxurious celebrity-owned properties from superstars Jennifer Lopez, Mariska Hargitay and Johnny Depp

 

Jennifer Lopez doesn’t mind having all eyes on her.

The 47-year-old actress-musician-entrepreneur is one of five leading ladies in pop culture to grace the cover of W’s March 2017 issue, where she candidly reveals why she’s more comfortable in her own skin these days.

“I never appreciated my body or my looks when I was in my 20s,” Lopez said. “Now I’m like, Look at me! Look at you! Not in a conceited or arrogant way — I just appreciate myself in a way I didn’t when I was that age. And it’s not about perfection. I like the scars that I have.”

The star of NBC cop drama “Shades of Blue” may have also been talking literally. When she’s not in front of cameras, Lopez is performing in Las Vegas for her residency, which is booked through the fall. Lopez has the battle scars to prove it.

“My knees are so bruised all the time, from my shows,” said Lopez. “I think, I am going to have all this scar tissue. But then I’ll be like, ‘This is from all the shows I did — when I used to slide across the stage and everybody went ‘Aaaah!’”

Lopez’s confidence may also attribute to how she approaches her love life, too. It’s been rumored she’s dating 30-year-old Canadian rapper Drake after the duo posted an intimate photo of themselves cozied up to each other on Instagram.

Lopez’s next bold move? W Magazine is reporting she’s developing an HBO project where she’ll star in as the late Colombian drug lord Griselda Blanco.
