Jennifer Lopez Deseo quotes

Jennifer Lopez Talks Deseo, Garden Time

In the new issue of Harper's Bazaar, Jennifer Lopez reveals a few details about Deseo, her eighth (!) fragrance. As she's already said, the scent was inspired by her garden. Usually I'd give it a big ol' yawn (and I can hardly imagine that Jennifer digs around in the dirt), but she sounds passionate about it.

  • On her work: "I'd just come from the studio with this long caftan on, no makeup, but I had all my diamonds and some wood jewelry. A wear mix of earth and glamour."
  • On her garden: "There's this smell in my garden. The wood of the stairs wet with water, the lemon trees, rosemary and lavender, and five different types of roses. The combination of these smells was the inspiration for the fragrance."
  • On rolling in cash: "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."

    If you're a big Jennifer Lopez fan and want to see the behind-the-scenes video of the photo shoot of her Deseo ad,

"To say that because Vick grew up in the South and because he's black, he just is naturally less sensitive to animals is a DISSERVICE to people living in the South and black people who DO care. NO EXCUSES. Saying things like this, and that "it's two different worlds" is such a load of crap. It's ONE world. PEOPLE are PEOPLE. Torturing animals is WRONG. It's not a gray-issue. Answer me honestly, what's more ridiculous... me caring enough about animals to get pissed that so much credit is given to hate-mongerers, or you all caring enough about some celebrity who only cares about your money to actually get so huffy over my comment? Give me a break." You completely misundestood me...or maybe it wasn't clear. Whatever.

Negatory, ariyana. I don't eat meat, eggs, or dairy and the only leather I wear are the combat boots I was issued in BMT. I realized, later than I would have liked, that animals are not mine to use. Their death doesn't give me anything I need. In time, more people will follow suit. As man has evolved, we've developed a state of living that doesn't require the death of animals anymore. Now we just kill them for entertainment, experimentation, sport, fashion, and unhealthy foods. Now all we need to develop is a conscience.

Gosh, you're right. I should just write letters to these people, because I know they care. Obviously I really do care about animal rights. It's all I work towards is to make people like you less tolerant of the cruelty towards animals. And do you know what, I LIVE in the South. Demographics has NOTHING to do with it. Living in the South or being black doesn't make you okay with animal cruelty. Being dead on the inside makes you okay with animal cruelty. To say that because Vick grew up in the South and because he's black, he just is naturally less sensitive to animals is a DISSERVICE to people living in the South and black people who DO care. NO EXCUSES. Saying things like this, and that "it's two different worlds" is such a load of crap. It's ONE world. PEOPLE are PEOPLE. Torturing animals is WRONG. It's not a gray-issue. Answer me honestly, what's more ridiculous... me caring enough about animals to get pissed that so much credit is given to hate-mongerers, or you all caring enough about some celebrity who only cares about your money to actually get so huffy over my comment? Give me a break.

Foxie, Do me a favor go down south and tell people, whether they be African American or Caucausian that its wrong. I'm not CONDONING it. I'm just saying that the Black community, the Hispanic community have not always been raised on this being wrong, you won't come to my neighborhood and hear my grammy say she doesn't eat meat because of animal cruelty. I think this is the point that Whoopi Goldberg was trying to make on the View (don't like the show that much, but I was watching) but she had to be careful. That's not to say that things shouldn't change, they probably should. But don't come all high and mighty thinking that they are evil just because they are not like YOU. Now, I'm not saying that Jennifer's use of fur is connected to her Puerto Rican heritage, because it's not. It's based on her love for so called "fashion." I'm of Black and Puerto Rican descent so I don't want to be misunderstood....It's just,... it's just two different worlds. You're just a HATER, you could probably care less about animal rights and if you did you would show some compassion and/or spend time campaigning. People like you turn other off the issue and cause that it is. Why don't you write Jennifer or Michael Vick a letter? Since you feel so strongly about it? Or hold a workshop for children that normally wouldn't get exposed to the issue? And there is a difference, Jennifer would be disgusted and horrified if she were to step foot into a room were people were doing what VICK did or was witnessing, did you ever think that she is in denial about what goes on? As for Michael do you think his mom or his teachers took time out of their day to tell him better? Not everyone has the time or the exposure to the issue to stop and think "Oh, I should do a unit on this for class" or "I'm going to tell my son dog fighting is bad. Even though it's been going on for GENERATIONS in the neighborhood". And certainly people that think and talk like you weren't doing any favors or sharing your knowledge with the young Michael Vicks of the world. Go take it up with them. I'm wasting my breathe. Chesca I agree with you, you took the words right out of my mouth :)

Michael Vick things hurting animals is a sport and she thinks it's fashion. What's the difference? What makes her better than him? The fact that he'll watch the violence and she pays someone else to watch it? And newsflash- you don't have to be PETA to know that fur is just wrong. Chesca- Also a very poignant post. Wow, her fan base is so articulate.
chesca22 chesca22 9 years
ok if you dont like her then dont waste your time and get a life. who cares if she wears fur, all kinds of other celebrities wear it to. eva mendez said to PETA that she would never wear fur and yet theres a picture of her carryinf an alligators skin clutch, pathetic. so yea leave her alone, shes doing her thing and it aint interfering with your being so go talk shit somewhere else.i wish her good luck because she has worked so hard to get where she is.
PeachyKeen19 PeachyKeen19 9 years
Oh, and yea, Jennie Lo looks Beautiful :)
PeachyKeen19 PeachyKeen19 9 years have every right to feel as you do and I actually agree about not wearing fur. However, you probably don't like Jenn to begin with and you're possibly infusing your opinion with your dislike of her. But no one is perfect and I'm no Jen Garner fan, so I'd probably slip up and say something but hopefully not the extent that you have. Did your grandmother or greatgrandmother wear fur? Would that make her VILE? What about the Mongols, Native Americans and Aborigines? Granted it was a different time but it can't be all evil. I have issues with the fashion industry now but it isn't right to out and out label someone a hag, or whatever. I really don't think you can compare it to Michael Vick, she probably has more knowledge now of this (with all the protests, so she can't excuse her "so-called" continous use of fur) but Michael Vick really is a different story. It was sport to him (which again where and how he grow up is a factor, dogfighting wasn't some shocking thing to do like it is for you.) TRULY, PETA should reach out to our communities and not just bash the Michael Vicks and Jennifer Lopez' of the world. PETA people expect others to their views but not all do.

Deseo means wish (or yea, desire) offense but how could you not like it? I mean you don't have to *like it* It's just a regular word. It's the equivalent of naming a perfume "Wish" or "Desire" in English. It may not be the best name for a fragrance, depending on your taste, but their still simple words that describe a feeling in a language. Other than Spanish it becomes desejo in Portuguese, desiderio in Italian and so on...) Just because Jennifer decided to go with it, (and just because ppl may not like) doesn't mean that what she "takes" or uses from Spanish because "bad". Sorry if you think I'm misinterpreting what you say. I just mean in general, I can already see that some people are relentless to find fault. But it doesn't matter, I just wanted to share some info. Hope y'all don't mind. I think the fragrance sounds interesting, her approach to her fragrances is almost poetic. Not necessarily something that some people would expect from her but I think it's great. Oh, yea just in case you don't know how to pronounce it, it is: (De - ___ Oh)...I'm not that great at this. But I hope that helps. The "De" is like in Spanish names, if that helps. Didn't know how to do the middle part and the end is like "oh."

Ariyana, what a poignant post... No, she isn't the only celebrity to do it. Anyone who does it, celebrity or not, who does it is a selfish, spoiled, mean spirited hag. They're condoning the torture of animals; animals being electrocuted up their anus, animals being tied down and skinned alive, animals having their heads beaten in. She is paying people to do this for her. She's like a pretty, talentless, Micheal Vick. Why isn't she in jail?

I could not hate that cow any more if I tried. she has mercilessly slaughtered millions of animals and made them suffer. She is a good looking woman, and if the perfume smells good i'll buy it, but that will never stop my burning hatred for her!

She looks gorgeous on that cover! I don't love or hate JLo & i've never bought a celeb inspired fragrance. Maybe i'll try this one though, I like the name & I am looking for a new Spring fragrance after all ;)

I just remember how when Glow (which is really just China Rain with no original notes going for it) came out and she did interviews saying that she "didn't like perfume". She basically admitted that she didn't wear the scents she has her name on. Now that they are selling well, perfume is a "creative outlet". Whatever.

I've liked her perfume before, but only enough to buy those little gift sets they have at Christmas. I'm still too loyal to my Brit (by Burberry, not Spears), but this one sounds interesting. I do have to say that it's funny how people either love her or hate her. No one's ever in the middle :) But I gotta say she is an awesome dancer. I'd kill to be able to dance like her.
