It’s been an eventful 365 days for one of Glamour magazine’s “Women of the Year” Jennifer Lopez.
The “American Idol” host, actress, designer, singer and actress saw her career come back in full force this year, returning to the television and music scene.
She was also picked for People magazine’s “Most Beautiful.”
But it wasn’t all great news. 2011 also saw the end of her 7-year marriage to Marc Anthony, with whom she two children.
Now the singer has been linked to actor Bradley Cooper and she is keeping mum on any relationship rumors in the new issue of Glamour.
“I think to give something a chance, to really get to know somebody, you want to do it out of the public eye,” she told the mag. ” You know the media—they want to rush everything.”
As for the demise of the relationship, she hinted that the problem may have been more about her own personal issues.
“I think I’ve finally learned the biggest lesson of all. You’ve got to love yourself first. You’ve got to be OK on your own before you can be OK with somebody else,” she said. ” You’ve got to value yourself and know that you’re worth everything. And until you value yourself enough and love yourself enough to know that, you can’t really have a healthy relationship.”
The new issue of Glamour hits newsstands November 8.
