Jennifer Lopez Works Hard, But Not For the Money

Jennifer Lopez is one of the hardest workers in show business, what with all her acting, singing, dancing and designing, but we also know that these days she's all about her privacy as an expecting mom. That doesn't mean she won't sit down for a high profile interview, like this one with Harper's Bazaar. She gushed about her 8th fragrance, Deseo, Marc and that battle of love vs. money. Here's more:

  • On her work: "Being an artist is about baring your soul. If you're not doing that, you're not creating anything worth anything. I always see myself as a performer first, so I will always want to make music, act in movies, even onstage."
  • On working for love, not money: "I've been lucky that because of what I do as a performer, I've also been able to do stuff like fragrances that I love. I'll never look at it as a money thing. I'll always look at it as a creative outlet."
  • On her husband Marc: "Marc is a really private person, and he's been singing onstage since he was really young. He made me realize you can be an artist, and have credibility and success, without your life being on public display 24 hours a day."
  • It is true that we see less of J Lo these days, but it's a welcome break after those years of seeing the ups and downs of Diddy, Ben Affleck and Jenny from the Block. Now we're settled in to sit tight and wait to see J Lo the mama.
