Jennifer Lopez Covers The Debut Issue Of Glam Belleza Latina
From the creators of Glamour comes the inception of a new beauty magazine called Glam Belleza Latina dedicated to “nuestra belleza,” the celebration of Latinas’ unique beauty, a rainbow that encompasses so many different colors, textures, and shapes.
For the debut issue, the editors choose arguably the most famous Latina of them all: Jennifer Lopez. “Latin beauty is the rainbow,” said Lopez. “We have black, we have white, we have caramel. We have blonds, we have blue eyes, we have brown eyes, we have the darkest of the dark skin. Latin beauty is for everybody.”
The 43-year-old singer, actress and mogul admits that love has made her even more beautiful now than she was in her 20s. “But I don’t think it’s the love of somebody else,” she said. “It’s learning to love yourself, like Whitney Houston sang. That really is the greatest love of all. We beat ourselves up so bad, [saying] ‘I messed up. I made the wrong choice.’ I started embracing that I do make mistakes. I’m a human being. I’m supposed to be flawed. I’m perfect in my imperfections. People praise me for being physically pretty. You can think, That’s who I am. But who you really are is all the messy, complex stuff. That makes you more interesting.”
So, is there anything Lopez has learned to love more then herself? Her girlfriends, of course! “Oh my God, my girlfriends are everything to me,” the Bronx bombshell gushed. “They celebrate with you, they cry with you, they hold you when you need to be held. They laugh with you. They’re mean with you! They’re just always there, and it’s just a priceless thing to have.”
