Jennifer Lopez Opens Up About Failed Marriage In VANITY FAIR

Jennifer Lopez gets gorgeous for the cover and pages of the September issue of Vanity Fair magazine.  And she's opening up for the first time since her divorce from Marc Anthony, about their failed marriage.

 

Check out the hot pics and what Jenny had to say inside...

Mother of twins J.Lo showed off her ridiculously sexy bod in nothing but a mink coat and heels for the pages of Vanity Fair.  And she dished about trying to make her marriage work and why she's still a hopeless romantic.

On desperately wanting married life to work out:

“That was my biggest dream, and I really worked hard at it. We both did. Sometimes it doesn’t work—and that’s sad. But I remain an eternal optimist about love. I believe in love,” Lopez says. “It’s still my biggest dream. I am positive—determined to move forward with my life, bring up my babies, and do the best job I can as a mother, entertainer, and person. I now look forward to new challenges. I feel strong.”

On the passage that has brought her to her current state of mind:

I’m a hopeless romantic and passionate person when it comes to love. It’s not that I didn’t love myself before. Sometimes we don’t realize that we are compromising ourselves. To understand that a person is not good for you, or that that person is not treating you in the right way, or that he is not doing the right thing for himself—if I stay, then I am not doing the right thing for me. I love myself enough to walk away from that now.”

On ex-husband Marc Anthony holding a special place in her heart:

“I will always respect Marc as a singer and performer. We actually work great together, and he was always very supportive. Together we could make magic—and we did. He will always be in our lives. He will always hold a special place in my heart as the father of my children.”

Fab pics for Jenny.  She's currently filming her next movie What To Expect When You're Expecting in Atlanta.

I feel sorry for Marc

I feel sorry for Marc Anthony Being married to this egotistical woman must have been hell. I bet he regrets leaving his woman for this piece of trash. She got divorced so she could display her tatas for the whole world to see. She should thank Marc for trying to turn her into a lady.

Latino & Hispanic? It’s Time

Latino & Hispanic? It’s Time to Rethink these Terms! Michael Grande - 7/5/2005 The words Latino and Hispanic have been so carelessly thrown around, used to label individuals, taken advantage of by some of the popular media (ie: Latin Grammy’s, AOL Latino, and the Hispanic Heritage Awards), and even used by some unknowing people as a tool to define their heritage. Yet do we really know what these words mean? There are over 25 countries where Spanish is either the official, or a commonly spoken language (including areas of the world that people don’t often associate with Spanish, like Andorra or the Philippines), and Spanish is the second most spoken language in the world. Additionally there are myriad regional dialects; some examples are the original Castilian Spanish of Spain (directly descended from the Latin language), Argentinean Spanish with its distinctive Italian flair, and Mexican Spanish with its characteristic blend of indigenous (Native American) words. There is no “typical” skin color for Spanish speakers - they range from the lightest whites to Mediterranean breeds, from those of Indian (Native Central/South American and Caribbean) heritage to black. All of the Spanish-speaking countries have their own unique peoples and their own distinctive cultures – they cannot be broadly and irresponsibly categorized into a “Latino” grouping. It is entirely imprecise to use such broad, vague, inaccurate terminology to categorize people based upon their language (whatever dialect it may be). Oddly enough, the term “Latino(a)” is never (or rarely) used in the USA to refer to Western Europeans such as Spaniards and Italians, when in fact the original Latin cultures lie within Italy, Spain, Portugal, Romania, Andorra, and France. Furthermore, when students arrive at college or pick up a book on European history, they will find that the term Latin, when used to refer to a monolithic culture, will speak of the Ancient Roman society, which is contrary to the ambiguous terminology employed by American media. The term Latin America first came into use in the late 1860’s and was used to describe the French presence in Mexico. This term was later shortened to refer to people from “Latin American” countries; thus solidifying the American misperception of the term. I have many Spanish-speaking friends, all of whom hail from different countries. My ex-college Professor is from Argentina and has almost nothing culturally in common with my friend from Mexico. As a matter of fact they too hate the use of the term Latino; they demand to be referred to according to their country of heritage, and rightly so! Furthermore, the terms Latino and Hispanic have been irresponsibly used as a “minority labeling system.” I find this to be even more reckless because any and all racism boils down to that which it always has: color. Another of my friends hails from Chile and has red hair and blue eyes, but according to popular media, a job application, or a government form, she is Latina or Hispanic, two terms that she earnestly hates because they pay no credence to her unique culture. Somehow I don’t think she was the minority prototype that they were looking for, but possibly that’s because the terminology is so rampantly and incorrectly used. Racism is despicable in any form, but if these silly questions are still going to be asked on government forms and job applications then they should address that which is truly in question: race. Anyone who hails from Central/South America or the Caribbean who is dark-skinned is likely to be either in part or fully of Indian heritage. Instead of making tons of superfluous categories on forms, why not just leave two boxes: Native American (North/Central/South/Caribbean) and African American? The other day I heard someone say, “Did you know that Latinos constitute the second largest minority population in America?” I thought to myself, “This is ridiculous.” Nobody needs to be forced into an inappropriate minority mentality; how has American cultural ignorance become so pervasive? Who are the minorities? The indigenous (native) population or the mestizo (mixed) population? Who exactly does this refer to? It’s so confusing. I am 100% Italian American. I speak both Spanish and Italian fluently. Since Italy is the patriarch of the Latin Culture, am I a minority too? This has become a very perplexing issue indeed. In Western Europe the term Latin(o)(a) is commonly used to refer the cultures of Italy, Spain, Portugal, Romania, and France. Additionally Europeans are shocked at how the term is used in America and who the term has been used to label. The term Latino(a) refers to the Latin culture, a culture that originally flourished in Italy during Roman times. It was during that time that the Romans spread the Latin language throughout Western Europe; the language then morphed into the modern Romance Languages such as Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, and French. In essence, the Italians are the original Latinos, and the only people who should be termed “Latino(a)” are those whose ancestry stems from Western Europe or those who have strong cultural ties to Latin Culture. Why would someone so irresponsibly refer to an indigenous Mexican as “Latino” when he has his own ancient, Pre-Columbian Heritage, ie: Aztec, or Mayan? Why would someone use the term to refer to someone of indigenous Peruvian heritage when he has his own Incan heritage? Why would someone label an indigenous-blooded Puerto Rican as “Latino” when his bloodline lies with the Borinquen Indians? People need to wake up and get educated on this issue. How many North Americans would like to be referred to as “Norths” or “Anglos” based upon our geographical location or our mother tongue? I for one, would not! The spread of such inaccurate terminology only helps to perpetuate myths that prevail in our society. Cultural ignorance seems to be a popular phenomenon in the U.S.A. Americans do not have the right to irresponsibly use terminology that attempts to alter history. We have the resources to become culturally educated; let’s use them and begin to express our heritage by country, not vague, “media and commerce friendly” generalities. If indeed we chose to speak of “Latinos,” using such a generalist quip, a quick reference term for all those who trace their roots to Latin America., then we should include the maternal Latin countries in that group: Italy, Spain, Portugal, even France. There is a pervasive Latin cultural flow that began in those countries and spread to Latin America. Latinos wouldn’t be “Latinoamericano” without the Europeans. Since the word “Hispanic” originally came from Spain as an adjective for linguistic purposes and is derived from the Roman name for their prized province “Hispania,” I guess we should look at England’s Roman name – “Britannia.” It appears then, according to Hispanic rhetoric that all speakers of English, regardless of culture, race, ethnicity, or geography should be called “Britannic.” So from India to America – I guess I should now present the list of BRITANNICS…. I think you’ll begin to see for yourself just how silly the modern-day, American usage of the words Hispanic and Latino has become… The English-speaking Countries: • Antigua & Barbuda • Australia • Bahamas,The • Bangladesh • Barbados • Belize • Bermuda • Botswana • Brunei • Cameroon • Canada • Cayman Islands • Dominica • Fiji • Gambia,The • Ghana • Gibraltar • India • Ireland • Jamaica • Kenya • Lesotho • Liberia • Malawi • Malta • Mauritius • New Zealand • Nigeria • Pakistan • Papua New Guinea • Philippines • Seychelles • Sierra Leone • South Africa • Sri Lanka • Swaziland • Tanzania • Trinidad and Tobago • Uganda • United Kingdom • United States • Zambia • Zimbabwe wwwanekicom/english.html Michael Grande is currently a graduate student of Literature and Culture.

Spanish is not a race, btw

Spanish is not a race, btw true Spaniards(Spanish) will never accept their former slave colonies as Spanish. I guess we can start calling Americans,Jamaicans,Trinidadians etc....English(British) simply because they speak Spanish. OMG why are Americans are so dumb and ignorant? Spain is located in Europe and Spanish is a European language just like French,Italian etc...

Real Latin people are White

Real Latin people are White Europeans,such as the Italians,French,Spanish,Portuguese,Romanian. JLO is a confused mutt just like the rest of the Spanish speaking countries outside of Spain. In Europe ,they consider Latin people from Italy whom are the true Latin people.

i am half black and half

i am half black and half spanish. I am the same color as JLo, some of my siblings are my color and some darker. According to some people on this site, I would be considered white cause i have the same color as JLo. As someone who identifies with both races, I wont be supporting this site anymore. Natasha edits comments when she wants to, but let all this hate and bs go on in her website! Not just in this post but in many others. I have been slowly disgusted with this site but according to the vast numbers of comments I would be considered white because of my color.

JLO is one of the biggest

JLO is one of the biggest self-hating Puerto Ricans I have ever seen. She constantly criticizes Marc and calls him names in public because she wants to turn people against him. Yet when Ben Affleck abused her with strippers and rubbed her nose in it she didn't have a bad word to say about the white boy. Now she and her crazy white boy loving mother Guadelupe are making the rounds calling Marc names and trying to get back with Affleck when he made it abundantly clear that he didn't want her. She broke up Marc's marriage to try to make Affleck jealous but it didn't work. In fact, Affleck was relieved and now JLO wants us to think it was all Marc being the fool.

She's collaborated with black

She's collaborated with black artists/producers/rappers on every single record she put out, save the Spanish language ones. She's always been R&B/hip-hop crossover. Even when she was putting out latin records, sh was still trying to come back as an R&B crossover act. She never ran away from blacks. (Well, maybe dating wise she did LOL, but not musically). And no, she can't sing worth crap, but do I really need to make a list of all the black females who can't sing for crap? Haha. My point is, she's a woman of color making music lots of black folks buy. She's part of the scene. I think it's silly to act like she should be covered on a black entertainment blog.

As far as her marriage goes,

As far as her marriage goes, I feel bad for anyone's marriage to end. Celebrity or not, its a commitment that you enter in for life and shouldnt be taken lightly but I think she will be fine. As for why JLO is on the site that is supposed to be "black only" if you were around from the beginning when Tasha first started you would've known that its for minorities as a whole. I can tell by the lack of intelligence in some of these comments that either people are highly ignorant or very young. Finish high school, graduate college then come back because you clearly have a lot of growing up to do.

For the most part this website is great and serves its purpose. Keep up the good job Natasha. But do try and stay true to the vision of the website. A fan.

Puerto Ricans are all mixed up. They are comprised of Black, White and Indian blood-like most caribean countries. Her hair gets wavy when she wets it, you people need to get over yourselves. Just cause she is not a darker PR does not mean she does not have black blood. Besides in NY Blacks and Puerto Rican mix and have kids all the time and nobody even considers it race mixing.
