Jennifer Lopez: I Can't Help That My Body Makes Things Look Sexier

Jennifer Lopez caused some controversy in that skin-baring bodysuit that she wore to perform on Britain’s Got Talent a few weeks ago, but she doesn’t get what all the fuss is about.

“I don’t think I’m any racier than any other female pop artist,” she told the U.K.’s The Guardian. “OK, I’ll wear a sexy outfit, but I think it’s more because my body shape’s a little different to other body shapes, so that’s not very fair.”

And Lopez is happy to share that hard-won figure with the world, no matter what other people have to say about it. “I love my body,” she says. “When I got pregnant, I remember watching my back, belly and butt grow and thinking, ‘I will never be the same again.'”

With a lot of hard work, she got back to fighting form, but she dismisses the Hollywood notion that it’s easy to bounce right back to J.Lo shape.

“The truth is it takes your body time to go back, and I think these days women are too hard on themselves with that,” she says. “Nobody bounces back straightaway. You don’t know what kind of Spanx these women are wearing under their clothes, and what other tricks are going on.”

Tell us: Has your body ever made certain clothing look too sexy? And how great are Lopez’s body-positive thoughts?

Get over yourself !

I don’t get it. How does this outfit seem any more racy than the one beyonce wore during the superbowl. The media can be so unfair sometimes.

fedora on

wow J-lo, narcissistic much?
@ robin, her head is catching up with her A$$

sandy on

She’s so full of herself! She’s a beautiful woman but she’s very stuck up and that makes her unattractive! She needs to tone it down a bit.

How is this “skin baring” Because we can see her thighs? Because otherwise it’s a very high neckline and long sleeves. What is so controversial about it? However, saying “I can’t help it if I make stuff look sexy” is ridiculous. For starters, that outfit looks anything but sexy.

@Melissa – it’s the back of her outfit that caused such an uproar. Her behind was hanging out all over the place. Beyonce’s had a lot more coverage in comparison.

mrsmass on

she sure is full of herself. also, she looks like a damn ostrich.

Loonhuss on

Katie on
