Jennifer Lopez just needed to love herself!

Jennifer Lopez - Vanity Fair

Despite only breaking up with Marc Anthony two weeks ago, Jennifer Lopez somehow managed to already snag an interview with Vanity Fair about the break-up because everyone knows the first thing you do when you split with someone is to go around making sure that everyone thinks you’re the victim here. Oh, and she makes sure to drop the “I just needed to learn to love myself” card here, because clearly JLo’s problem is that she doesn’t love herself enough.

Lopez opens up to contributing editor Lisa Robinson about her life with Anthony and the example she hopes to set for her children; she talks about her relationship with P. Diddy and breaking off her engagement to Ben Affleck; she’s honest about the diva rumors that surround her, and shares her attitudes toward money, fame, and especially love. “I’m a hopeless romantic and passionate person when it comes to love,” Lopez explains, describing the passage that has brought her to her current state of mind. “It’s not that I didn’t love myself before. Sometimes we don’t realize that we are compromising ourselves. To understand that a person is not good for you, or that that person is not treating you in the right way, or that he is not doing the right thing for himself—if I stay, then I am not doing the right thing for me. I love myself enough to walk away from that now.” SOURCE

In all seriousness, what if, just an idea, Jennifer Lopez stays single for a while. No, really, think about it: When was the last time you remember JLo being single? And how many times has JLo gotten married and then subsequently divorced? At this point, maybe it would be for the best if she just, you know, took time for herself? Maybe just limited herself to meaningless one-night stands? It would probably be a lot healthier (with proper protection) and less expensive than hiring a divorce attorney.
