I imagine that one of the main stresses of being ridiculously famous is how often people (and in this case,Â People) take terrible photos of you only to publish them anyway. It’s almost like being tagged in shitty Facebook pictures, except it’s all the time and everyone in the world can see past your privacy settings, which are probably futile anyway. In this case, the newÂ Jennifer Lopez cover ofÂ People has upset the great J. Lo herself and, if I’m honest, understandably so.
In her interview, she apparently discussesÂ Marc Anthony (because people/PeopleÂ apparently care about that relationship still…though I’d admittedly read something about Bennifer, FFS) andÂ Beau â€śCasperâ€ť Smart, her new fellah who’s 18 years her junior. But the cover is what’s presently in question, being that she looks considerably different than usual.
According to theÂ New York Post, Jennifer Lopez is displeased with People‘s choice of photo.Â â€śHer camp feels she looks old and haggard,â€ť a source reportedly said, and she has been compared to eccentric designerÂ Betsey JohnsonÂ due to her stick-straight hair and kind of ridiculous smile. Personally, I love Betsey Johnson and her adorable ridiculousness, but she is 70-years-old and when you’re 43, as J. Lo is, it is rarely flattering to be compared to somebody nearly 30 years your senior.
Nevertheless, she is still one of the most widely recognized stars in the world, and is certainly considered one of the most beautiful, as well. I’d say that if this the worst cover she does in her life, she’s done just fine for herself (because, you know, she’s on magazine covers in the first place).
