Excerpts and more pics below:
On still believing in love:
“I still believe in love. The nirvana man, he’s out there somewhere. But you just have to work at it. You have to work at everything.”
On mistakes she has made in her past relationships:
“Everybody has seen that I make mistakes. Every single album I have ever made is about love. But I am not going to give up. I have to look at what I do wrong. I rush in, I get swept up, I ignore the signs. But so many of us are guilty of these things. Each time it goes wrong, it’s hard. I get really hurt but I have to let myself go: ‘What did I do? What can I learn?’ And as hard and as hurtful as things get, I want to believe I will be able to go one step higher,” she says. “I’ve got to hope that if I keep going I will eventually get it right.”
On the public’s interest in her relationships:
“Is it worth making mistakes, in my case in public, and trying to figure out what you do and balance everything and constantly grow? I’d say yes,” she tells the magazine. “None of it is easy, none of it is safe—you are going to get big highs and you are going to get big lows, so it’s not for everyone—but that’s exciting. You just need to believe in yourself.”
On being a single mother:
“It’s not easy. I’m from a traditional background. It takes two people to make a kid for a reason. It’s tough because I know they feel the void of that male presence,” says Lopez, who was most recently linked to Maksim Chmerkovskiy. “When Marc and I first broke up, I did think, ‘I wish I could have held this together.’ But when you realize it’s not the right thing for anybody, you think, ‘OK, well how do we make this work, how do we make this better, how do we make this great for the children anyway?'”
