Jennifer Lopez Smooches Casper Smart In Cosmopolitan: “I Have A Button Being Ignored!”

Nobody puts Jennifer Lopez in the corner! In the October 2013 issue of Cosmopolitan, the 44-year-old singer, dancer, and actress opens up about her May-December romance with 26-year-old choreographer Beau “Casper” Smart.

“It’s funny, early on with Beau, I remember telling him how I have a real button on being ignored,” she said. “And he was like, ‘Listen, if somebody ignores you, then forget them. They don’t deserve to have your attention.’ But it’s funny. Sometimes when we don’t get it, we try to get it in a negative way, you know?”

Thankfully Lopez, who just signed a deal to return as a judge on the next season of American Idol, gets the right amount of attention from Casper and she believes the couple have a rock-solid relationship.

“For me, it’s about having a great partner to walk this life with,” she told Cosmo. “I have my own high standards for what I want in a partner and how I want to be treated. I bring a lot to the table. I’m not talking about material things but what I have to offer as a person—love and loyalty and all the things that make a good relationship.”

While Lopez is confident about where she stands in her personal life, she admits she struggled with confidence upon becoming a mom to her 5-year-old twins Maximilian and Emme.

“It was after I had kids to be honest,” Lopez says. “The biggest insecurity I had was my singing. Even though I had sold 70 million records, there was this feeling like, I’m not good at this. And while I was married to Marc, he helped me get over it. He kept telling me, ‘You’re the only one holding yourself back from reaching your full potential as a singer. You have to let go.’ I was always so insecure and just kind of going along. Then I grew, little by little, and realized, wait a minute, this is not a fluke. I’m not a mistake—I work my ass off. And I know what I’m doing.”
