Jennifer Lopez appears on the cover of the February 2013 issue of Harper’s Bazaar.
Inside, Lopez talks traveling. “I like the whole idea of traveling, of looking good, and doing it well. I make it as simple and as beautiful as I can because my life is kind of big. So I pack my luggage, or dress myself, or comb my kids’ hair, pick up their clothes–that makes our life beautiful, you know? There’s something very elegant in that.”
She also spoke about the legendary dress she wore way back in 2000. “I have that at home. The other day, my housekeeper put it on a mannequin in my spa, where I get my hair and makeup done. She sent me a picture. She was like, ‘You like this dress?’ Um, yeah, but I don’t know if I like it out in the house!”
That doesn’t mean Lopez is all glitz and glamour. She also likes to keep it real. “I’m a singer. I’m a dancer. I’m a performer. I’m an actress. That’s what I’m supposed to be doing. It makes me a better parent, a better person.”
