Glamour Magazine December 2011 Names Jennifer Lopez ‘Women Of The Year’

27 Oct

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.

Celebrity Style: Jennifer Lopez Stunning Affordable Clothing Line Comes Out In Fall 2011

17 Aug

Jennifer Lopez is in the house! And she’s making over eight O readers in her fabulous new clothing line. (Most pieces are under $100!)

In her 20-year career, Jennifer Lopez has been many things—Fly Girl, actress, singer, tabloid fixture, wife, mother, American Idol judge—but understated has never been one of them. When she arrives at O’s Manhattan fashion shoot in boyfriend jeans and teetering stiletto boots, not a hair out of place, the eight women we’ve assembled to model her new fashion line can’t help murmuring in amazement. Even off-camera Lopez doesn’t blend in.

Not that she doesn’t try. “Hi, I’m Jennifer,” she says, shaking hands with each of the women, among them a teacher, a lawyer, and a newly minted college graduate. They’re the reason Lopez is here; her brand-new collection of casually glamorous, uncannily flattering, expensive-seeming “movie star on the go” pieces (as O creative director Adam Glassman describes them) was designed for women like them. The line—from faux-fur vests to liquid-gold jersey tops, animal-print wrap dresses to comfy, slimming cocoon sweaters—debuts at Kohl’s in September in a generous array of sizes, with meticulous attention to fit.

Lopez insists she relates to these women’s concerns. “I’m a mom,” she says simply. “I work. I want comfort. But I want to feel sexy and modern. I think most women want the same things.” She says motherhood (twins Max and Emme turned 3 in February) hasn’t dulled her trademark body-conscious style—just made it slightly trickier to pull off.

Today Lopez will work behind the scenes to style our photo shoot. “This is overwhelming,” she says excitedly as the women—the first nonmodels she’s seen in her clothes—start playing dress-up. She helps Julie Seely, MD, a 55-year-old physician, pull on a tailored tweed top with a flattering cinched belt over black ponte leggings; Seely is duly impressed. “I need pieces I can wear to the office but also make a little sharper and classier in the evening,” she says. “I could wear this easily with pumps or flats.” Meanwhile, Jordan Tesfay, a 31-year-old lawyer, has slipped into skinny jeans and a formfitting tunic. “I feel fabulous,” she says. “This is snug in all the right places. I put it on and thought, ‘That’s me?'”

Lopez looks thrilled. While she’s sold more than 55 million albums and starred in films opposite George Clooney and Robert Redford, her previous forays into design “weren’t exactly what I wanted them to be,” she admits. This time she was adamant that the clothes be pieces she’d actually wear herself—and stayed involved in every step of the process to ensure her standards weren’t compromised. Judging by today’s results, she’s succeeded. Her pieces have a refreshing “9-to-9” versatility, Glassman says, meaning they up the wattage of an unfussy daytime look and, with the addition of a sparkly accessory, transition easily to nighttime.

When the women are decked out in a feminine palette of blushes, alabasters, grays, and creams, each piece hugging and accentuating exactly what it should, Lopez joins them on set for a group photo. “I wasn’t ready!” she calls to the photographer with mock-diva outrage, provoking laughter all around. But she’s completely sincere when she says, “This is the fulfilling part—to have women tell me, ‘This is so comfortable, it fits so well.'”

Singers Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony are getting a divorce, PEOPLE Magazine reports.

“This was a very difficult decision,” the couple told the magazine. “It is a painful time for all involved and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time.”

The couple also said they have reached “amicable conclusions on all matters.”

J.Lo’s big announcement isn’t about ‘Idol’

They wed in 2004 and have 3-year-old twins, Max and Emme.

Story: 35 million reasons why J.Lo might not return to ‘Idol’

Lopez was a judge on “American Idol” last season, but has not yet announced if she will return to the show. In addition to her musical career, she has starred in films including “The Wedding Planner,” “Maid in Manhattan,” and “The Back-up Plan.”

In April, People put her on its cover declaring her the “World’s Most Beautiful Woman.”

The marriage was the third for Lopez, 41, and the second for Anthony, 42. He was previously wed to 1993 Miss Universe winner Dayanara Torres. She was married to dancer Cris Judd and before that, to waiter Ojani Noa. Each of their previous three marriages lasted just a year.

Jennifer Lopez Is Named One Of Peoples Most Beautiful Persons

14 Apr

Jennifer Lopez is having a great year, first she’s selected as one of the new judges for American Idol, her seventh album Love? is dropping in May and now at the age of 41 she has been named as PEOPLE Magazines 2011 “World’s Most Beautiful” woman.

Lopez takes some time in the magazine to talk about how aging has put her in a better place now than when she was younger:

“It’s so crazy. Rarely am I left speechless, but I feel honored. I feel not worthy, you know? I feel happy and proud. Proud that I’m not 25!” she told the mag of her honor. “I feel better, I feel smarter. In my 20’s, I just wasn’t there in my mind and my soul and my spirit. It’s just great to be in the position I’m in now and be able to share that with the world,” she explained. “I think it’s because I have a lot of love in my life. I feel lucky to be an attractive person, but I’ve always felt that real beauty always comes from your heart.”

She goes on to tout her age as a good thing in Hollywood, while explaining how aging is being redefined by various industry players:

“I think with people like me and Jennifer Aniston, Halle Berry, and Julia Roberts, this generation is redefining what it is to be a woman who is not in her 20’s anymore but is still very viable, sexy and important,” she told PEOPLE. “We have a lot to offer. And people are starting to realize the beauty in that.”

The singers secret for looking young? Plenty of daily workouts.

Summary: Well, at least one woman’s going to get a title out of American Idol this year. People has named judge Jennifer Lopez the World’s Most Beautiful Woman. And it’s not like you see anybody handing out similar men’s titles to Steven Tyler or Randy Jackson.

“Rarely am I left speechless, but I feel honored,” the 41-year-old singer/actress tells People.

Jennifer Hudson’s also on the “Most Beautiful” list, BTW.

Singer and actress Lopez was involved in fashion design at least as far back as 2001, when she launched the New York City-based Sweetface Fashion Company.

Lopez and Anthony, a five-time Grammy winner, will collaborate with Kohl’s on the design of the new products.

Music Entertainment Sports Holdings, a division of Hong Kong-based Li & Fung’s U.S. division, will sub-license the brands exclusively to Kohl’s under a long-term agreement.

Jennifer Lopez And Steven Tyler New American Idol Judges

19 Nov

Michael Becker/FOX

American Idol” executive producer Nigel Lythgoe told TVGuide.com that there are more changes coming to Fox’s singing competition.

This season, the finalists will participate in a number of new challenges, including making a music video, promoting themselves as singers and creating an awards show-caliber performance that includes a band and dancers.

In addition, the producers have eliminated the round that cuts the contestants from 24 semi-finalists to 12 finalists. Instead, the show will just go straight to a top 12, but it’s unclear whether that group of singers will be chosen by the judges or viewers.

“I didn’t think [the top 24] were very good; I was bored with them by the time they got there,” Lythgoe told TVGuide.com.

The changes follow the news that theme weeks will now focus on decades rather than a specific artist.

Also as previously announced, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler have joined the judges’ panel following the departures of Simon Cowell, Ellen DeGeneres and Kara DioGuardi. Interscope Geffen A&M Records chairman Jimmy Iovine also has come aboard as a mentor.

Producers also lowered the age requirements to try out for the show, with 15-year-olds now allowed to audition.

“Idol” returns Jan. 12.

Summary: For those big fan’s who adore Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler you will be excited to know it returns January 12th. Two hot star’s musically talented themselves.

Can you imagine if you were the one standing and performing in front them. It make’s for and interesting night of television if you ask me.

I absolutely love Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler personally I grew up either listening to their music or watching them on the big screen.

I actually stopped watching American Idol about 3 years ago. Just like anything we start off loving it and then over time we find ourselves growing out of it.

So much has changed as the years went on of course. Just like life and the season’s it always changing.

I been contemplating on watching it Jan. 12th just to see how the show rolls off with the these new celebrity judges.

I am sure the world is quite curious themselves. To see what it will be like without Simon who pretty much made that show interesting. Then of course Paula Abdul who always nit picked with Simon over the years.

How much longer do you think this show will last?

For those who are looking forward to auditions good luck and good singing!
