J.Lo Speaks! "I Loved Myself Too Much To Stay"

| Filed under: Love LineJennifer LopezMarc AnthonySex & The City

JLo Vanity Fair

To quote Sex and the City, "the most important relationship is the one you have with yourself, and if you can find someone to love the you *you* love, well, that's just fabulous."

And that's exactly what J.Lo is all about now.

Opening up about her split with Marc Anthony, she explains how she wasn't going to settle for anything less than she knew she deserved:

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. Sometimes it doesn’t work – and that's sad. But I remain an eternal optimist about love. I believe in love.

Wow, maybe SHE should write for the new Sex and the City movie! Or at least her own book on love. Talk about eloquence.

As for her Marc and her future?

I will always respect Marc as a singer and performer. He will always be in our lives. He will always hold a special place in my heart as the father of my children. [As for me] 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.

Jennifer Lopez, you have grown so much! We're proud of you, girl!

You ARE strong, and you ARE beautiful. No need to worry about a thing. You got this!!

    When you have money of course you can you still love yourself enough to walk away.



  2. 2

    She makes him sound like an abuser, and takes no responsibility for things going sideways. I would find her more believable if she would have said something about her role in the breakup, not just his.



  3. 3

    Does this mean she's going to go all "Jenny from the Block" on us again?



  4. 4

    To quote ex and the City….wow…what a philosophy lover we have here..lol

    To Quote Samantha from SATC "i love you but i love me more"



  6. 6

    Maybe she should love herself enough not to get married next time. She's been married what, 3 times, with countless fiances. What a fucking old bag of wind.



  7. 7

    sounds like someone had the sex and city movie on repeat. turn it off and enter reality now.



  8. 8

    Wow. Jennifer has some ego on her doesn't she? She's really not that talented. She's a so/so singer and a really bad actor. For her to even think she's an actor with talent I have one word for you: Gigli. There! Also, I liked her better in the Living Color days. She was chunkier, lighter and more normal looking. She's had surgery and she doesn't resemble what she used to look like. I would also love to know where she got that fake accent from? She's from the Bronx & said once that her parents would only speak English to them not spanish. Both her sisters speak perfect English w/o an accent, so where did she get hers from???



  9. 9

    I love her! She is so amazing. And she looks like Jackie-o on the cover. I'M so buying this!



  10. 10

    That's fast. Post split interview in Vanity Fair.



  11. 11

    It takes two for a relationship to work. I have no idea of the details of what went on in their relationship, but I think she is handling this immaturely. Stop gossiping about your ex and if you are so strong just move on, don't blab about how he didn't love you enough to anyone with a camera.



  12. 12

    At least now she has something to talk about!



  13. 13

    J.Lo should write about love!!?!?!?!?! ROTFLMAO. Perez, what are you smoking? The LAST person on the planet who should be giving any advice about love is J.Lo.

    Why not have Lindsay Lohan write about overcoming drug addiction? Absurd.



  14. 14

    Now that’s a strong, confident woman who knows her worth. Take note, ladies!



  15. 15

    Did Marc not get her list of demands pre wedding? Well I think she said her first 2 husbands did "nothing" wrong and she left them anyway so Marc was kind of doomed either way! She is beautiful!



  16. 16

    she loves herself and is such a strong woman yet there's never been a significant amount of time where she's been alone (i.e. single) - jennifer lopez is a stupid, vain woman………



  17. 17

    She wanted babies, she got babies.



  18. 18

    Is anyone here in anyway, shape or form surprised to hear Jho say that she "loves herself"?? Anyone ….. anyone? I thought not.



  19. 19

    Well, it did not take long for her to turn on MA and take the low road. Just shows what kind of person she is. Takes no responsibility for the demise of their marriage. Marriage really is give and take, sometimes being selfless, and learning about who we really are. After three failed marriages and several engagements she needs a reality check. Loving another human being is about the outflow of love to that other human being, not what one can get from their partner. After reading her quotes, I am embarrassed for her. Certainly wish her the best, but if she doesn't change, her relationships won't.



  20. 20

    Re: RdRydngHd – to be specific - P.R. babies…….thats what she really wanted and that is what she got!



  21. 21

    Please stop!! Even people who like her hate her. She's just so hate-able!! Fucking spic!! UGH!!



  22. 22

    Fuck I hate her. A total me-first-now Hollywood asshole. They had barely broken up and already she had her little shit puppets anonymously flooding the goosipsphere with tidbits about how she's awesome (as usual) and how he's just a jerk. I knew the AmIdol gig would re-inflate her already massive ego to galactic proportions. Did I mention I fucking hate her?



  23. 23

    No one should settle for being truly abused in any way or have to stay with someone they really just don't want to be with. But you do have to "compromise" yourself in a relationship. You aren't always going to get to do the things you want to do, whether big or small, and there will be times you will feel you are being a little mistreated. It's inevitable if you are going to live the rest of your life with someone.



  24. 24

    Maybe they can remake Mommie Dearest, sounds like that is her bible for running her life.



  25. 25

    J Lo is narcissist and self centered. It's no doubt she loves herself too much. I can’t stand her and her Diva ways and she is definitely using this divorce as a way to gain publicity. I bet her new album will debut soon as well.. pathetic.



  26. 26

    maybe she should love her children enough to keep her fkn mouth shut. Bad mouthing the father of her beautiful children in public outlet seems pathetic and desperate.



  27. 27

    Just threw up in my mouth.



  28. 28

    Yeah she sure makes him sound like an abuser and she never said she was in love with him. She only respects him as a singer and performer, but not as the father of her children? Kind of odd.



  29. 29

    one word!!! DIVA!!!!! period…love her!!!



  30. 30

    Re: MsJules

    Maybe if you loved yourself just a little you wouldn't be such a hateful bastard.
    Ever thing about that?



  31. 31

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – Racist people go to hell. I hope you like the heat Missy.



  32. 32

    If you can't love yourself than who will. She is not making him sound like an abuser. He can not cover her up when she is a beauty that needs to be seen.



  33. 33

    Who says this crap, did some quack put this idea in her head ?



  34. 34

    Re: MsJules
    Her new album has been out for several months now.



  35. 35

    What can she possibly have to say? She had nothing to say before the break-up, during the break-up; maybe she can talk about how WONDERFUL that PIA chick is, you know, the one American voted off AI….



  36. 36

    she looks old and photoshopped to death! she has NERVE insinuating bad stuff abt Marc, no respect for her kids, alway always abt her, she gives me GAS!!!!!! she whores herself out for any publicity under the sun..and she got the cover of VF to talk abt her divorce? Her trifling manager Benny pimps her out good, exploiting at no cost as long as she gets publicity. And she's her biggest pimp..DIVA? WHERE/WHY..she CANT SING, ACT, PROOF U CAN SLEEP UR WAY TO A "CAREER"! SHE'S A HAS BEEN…Perez girl what do u know abt eloquence to praise this trash abt? Ho's arent eloquent, you are disappointing, YOU HAVE REDUCED YOURSELF TO PAYOFFS FOR SPREADING GOOD PUBLICITY ABT HER…u were better when u were telling it like it is abt her..ughh



  37. 37

    Re: Sandra25 – Ever thing about it? No didn't thing about it. And your comment is so silly. Hateful bastard? Lmao.. for one I have a father so that eliminates me being a bastard. And for two, hateful? Why because she has been proven time and time again to be a diva who is really into herself? Stating the facts doesn't make me hateful. And in fact,me "thinging" of her children proves opposite of being a hateful "bastard" as you so eloquently put it.



  38. 38

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – rot in hell u cock whore, unfortunately for you the biggest dick in the world still cant fill that gaping hole u call a vagina. you dont have to like her, but u crossed a line calling her a spic. not sure if ur black white or whatever else but u obviously have such low self-esteem u feel the need to call attention to ur self by saying outlandish things. seek help bitch. being that jealous of a celeb is really unhealthy and kind of pathetic..
    xoxo



  39. 39

    Re: RabbitHeart – LOL… if thats the case then I feel sorry for her… so let me rephrase this.. fine she is attempting to drum up attention in the media in hopes to sell her album.. which clearly is not doing well considering its number 75 on the billboard charts and has only been out for 12 weeks and is being well surpassed by many other albums that have been out for months.



  40. 40

    Glad she loves herself, to me she washed up just making noise/publicity for herself. All the talent is in her Ass and when that drops will she have it lifted. She can't sing, can't act so why do we care? GO AWAY



  41. 41

    All the money, fame, and men will not fill that completely empty hole in her heart & head….



  42. 42

    That's code for I'm too into myself, no matter how terrible I am in bed.

    Howard Stern fans know that they have been apart for over a year or longer. Marc wasn't bringing in the bucks and they fought over that. Bills stacked up and she owed the IRS money and that's why she took idol.



  44. 44

    Perez your writers are cocks. They've manipulated the interview she gave and given it a shitty spin. She said that during her marriage she stopped working so she could support Marc and concentrate on being a good mother. Then when time came for her to focus on her career the marriage fell apart - which says something about his ego, not hers



  45. 45

    Oh my fucking god! "i love myself too much to stay"?? Lol if that didn't scream JLO i don't know what the fuck else would!.. Chick is so far up her own ass i swear.. when is someone going to sit her down and tell her she can't sing and she puts in no effort into anything in her effing career.. she is mediocre everything! No talent!
    Funny how Marc is only the bad guy once you break up with him.. her p.r. team is going insane with bullshit all over these mags..
    they both suck and they both are cheating pieces of shit.. but she is far worse and needs a big dose of humble fucking pie.. bitch is no queen, let alone something great!
    YOU and Marc are a DISGRACE to Puerto Ricans everywhere!



  46. 46

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – not cool xP



  47. 47

    She's so nauseatingly self-centered. Barely a month out of a separation and already does an interview about it (tacky - keep it private), and pretty much threw her children's father under the bus, trying to give the "I'm a victim" spin and the impression that he was somehow emotionally abusive. She truly is a low rent person.



  48. 48

    Re: MsJules – Exactly. Your posts are bang on.



  49. 49

    Why is she wearing her engagement ring in the picture? Or any ring on that finger? Just another "look at me and try to figure out how deep I am and what message I'm trying to portray" move on her part.



  50. 50

    bitch please..jho needs to shut the hell up… she put her self through it, why marry someone you dont know!! whatever…

  51. @v@ says – reply to this


    51

    Stop with the veiled insinuation comments or just come out & say what actually happened. Reading between the lines can encompass various and grand canyon wide scenarios.



  52. 52

    Jennifer Lopez is the LAST person to give advice on Love. She doesn't know sh*t about love. Grow up and learn to appreciate your wedding vows, otherwise Don't get married.

    Her ego is out of control. And quit bashing your Ex. You sound bitter and don't like you didn't a play in your failed marriage. It takes 2! 3rd marriage down the drain.

    Ps. Shame of you Mario for comparing Jlo to ANY of the girls from SATC. And Jlo is NOT a philosopher on love. SMH



  53. 53

    And get real! everyone knows Jlo Never had or ever will have a problem loving herself! She loves herself too much, thats the problem! Her ego is a monster!



  54. 54

    Re: MsJules – Agree w all your posts! Spot on!



  55. 55

    Why is she talking to the press so much about her divorce? Has she learned nothing? Quit talking JLo and focus on your kids.



  56. 56

    god, JLO is so beautiful. even kim the ugly fat kardashian is jealous. haha
    i love jennifer lopes. she so freaking gorgeous.



  57. 57

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – Everyone hates you ’cause you're a WHORE



  58. 58

    Of course she loves herself, it's always been obvious. Sounds like it was an abusive relationship, or at the very least he was really controlling. Thing is, she was with him before! Hope she figures out that it's time for her to refine her look. It's time to let go of trying to look 21. You can take the girl outta the ghetto, but you can't take the ghetto outta jlo.



  59. 59

    Re: Low – For sure. It isn't hard to see that there is much more to the story.



  60. 60

    Re: realtalkInc – Really?? What do you find amazing about her?



  61. 61

    I think she's gorgeous. She looks like a Goddess. She needs to stay single for a little while bc she's always jumping into relationships an that's prob why they don't work bc she always turns herself into whatever she thinks her guy likes and she prob doesn't even know herself.



  62. 62

    that still didn't answer the question of what happened what specifically did he do to her that made her leave? its easier for her to sit there and bad mouth him but not say her role in the breakup. and why even bother talking about it when you're not going to give us the details, i'll never support anything this woman does or marc for that matter. they both are losers in my opinion and im sorry to say but her children are not cute they got marcs looks and he is not attractive at all. at the end of the day jlo looks like she got played like a fool not only to date someone who is ugly on the outside but was known to be ugly on the inside too before they got together. both of them are dumb asses and this is karma



  63. 63

    All I gotta say is that Marc is a VERY respected and talented latin singer in latin america and JLO is really no one– just "jenny from the cock.. i mean block"
