Jennifer Lopez, who is the magazine’s December issue cover star, posed for the cover story of Instyle magazine in a sparkling green Valentino Haute Couture pleated cape that exposed her infamous curves and legs.
Speaking to the magazine, she talked about growing up with a curvier figure and being accepting of her curves. She said:
“I’ve taken care of myself, and now it shows.
“In my family, curves were glorified and part of the culture. It was just like, ‘Jennifer has a big butt, and it’s good.”
She also spoke about preferring the age of smartphones to earlier times.
“It was actually worse then.” She said.
“It was just crazy. Now at least I can show you who I am a little bit. Back then you just believed anything you read on the cover of a tabloid. Many times it wasn’t true, or it was like a third of the truth.”
She says she hasn’t noticed many effects of ageing yet (like memory lapses and low energy) but she does admit to squinting at her phone, getting aches in the middle of her back and noticing that her muscles get loose when she dances too much (which she supplements by adding weight training into her workouts).
