“I’ve been in the grind and the game for a long time. At a certain point, people respect you when they see you fall down and get back up. The more you’re in this life, the more they celebrate your triumphs.”
At 46, mother of two, American Idol judge, global superstar with a three-year Vegas residency contract, to say Jennifer Lopez has a lot on her plate, is an understatement. She sat down with W Magazine this month to talk her lengthy career that doesn’t seem to be slowing down, and her fight to stay on top.
“It’s a man’s world, and, truly, people in a business setting do not value a woman as much as a man. I feel like I’m constantly having to prove myself. If a man does one thing well, people immediately say he’s a genius. Women have to do something remarkable over and over and over. And, even then, they get questions about their love life.” She shrugged. “People underestimate me. They always have, and maybe that’s for the best. It’s fun to prove them wrong.”
