Jennifer Lopez V Magazine 76

Jennifer Lopez dons a boxer’s groin protector and gloves for a gender-bending editorial in V Magazine #76. The Mario Testino-photographed pictorial is titled “The Lady is a Champ,” and in her interview, she muses on the theme’s appropriateness to her life. “I can take a lot of punches and still keep going,” she explained. “I’ve been trained like a boxer to go 15 rounds.”

When asked about her many career misses — including “The Back-Up Plan” and a few less-than-stellar albums — she gamely responded, “You’re not going to hit the target or the bull’s eye every time. That’s part of it. At the end of the day, I made those choices. I’ve been in the business now, I don’t want to say how many years. You have amazing moments of recognition and success. But at this point in my life, I try to take it all with a grain of salt.”

And what of her relationship with ex-husband Marc Anthony, her “Q’Viva: The Chosen” co-judge? “I mean, we’re parents and friends first,” she said. “That will be the thread that ties us together. I don’t know if people expect it to be negative just because the [intimate] relationship didn’t work out.”
