Jennifer Lopez gets glamorous in a red gown on the cover of Vogue's April shape issue, which is also available on the iPad. J Lo also posed for photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott for a sexy inside spread. She's gearing up for the Spring release of What to Expect When You're Expecting while also juggling her American Idol judging duties, fashion ventures, and musical projects, including the recent taping of her new video for "Follow the Leader." J Lo was on location in Acapulco earlier this week with boyfriend Casper Smart, who showered her with kisses in between takes. For the publication, J Lo chatted with Jonathan Van Meter about Casper, her image, and the difficulties of motherhood. Here's more from Jennifer Lopez in Vogue:
- On her diva image: "Sometimes I think it's just because I have a nice car and I'm not afraid to wear a big fur."
- On her demeanor: "By nature I am not tough, believe it or not. No. I am a lover. And with my kids I am even softer. I realize with my son, I have to sometimes be tough, especially now when he's pushing boundaries. With my daughter, I can get a little stern with her and she pretty much will listen. But my son will just scream and yell and run. I'm like, Aaaaah, what do I do with this?!"
- On her boyfriend, Casper: "He's adorable. But you already see that. He's a good egg. I don't want to talk about it too much. It's my private thing."
