NOTES: Jennifer Lopez is soooo back!

American singer and actress Jennifer Lopez graces the cover page of fashion magazine Elle US for the month of February 2010. J-Lo talks about on motherhood, heartbreak, and the future of her career, and revealed that she never considered in vitro fertilization because she’s a traditional woman. 

Here are some highlights from her interview. 

On why she never considered in vitro fertilization, like her character in The Back-Up Plan: “When it comes to family and relationships, I’m quite traditional. Just because of the way I was raised. And I also believe in God and I have a lot of faith in that, so I just felt like you don’t mess with things like that. And I guess deep down I really felt like either this is not going to happen for me or it is. You know what I mean? And if it is, it will. And if it’s not, it’s not going to.”

On the merit of her romantic comedies:  “I think Maid in Manhattan and Monster-in-Law are very layered movies. And that’s why they’re so successful. People don’t like shitty romantic comedies. Nothing that’s shitty is going to make $100 million.” 

On hosting a dinner for Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor: “She didn’t realize what she was going to symbolize. And it’s always scary to be thrown into it–that’s what I felt like when I did Selena. You’re thrown out there, and all of a sudden you’re not anonymous. You are now known. And that’s a lot to handle. It’s scary at first. Then you get used to it. And so she was in that moment of her life where it’s just like, What the hell? Everybody’s clapping for me. People are writing about me, talking about me, I’m on TV. She was just a judge in New York.”

On competing with twenty-something pop idols as a 40-year-old mom: “This is what I do—what, because I have kids and a husband now I’m not supposed to be me? I’m a more heightened me if anything. Hyper J.Lo. Everything I wanted before, I want twice as much now. And that doesn’t mean material things; it means to explore more, to think more. Being an artist doesn’t start because you’re 21, and it doesn’t end because you’re 51. You are who you are until the day you die.”

On betrayal: “This is something I haven’t been through once in my life. This is something I’ve been through a few times in my life. Where you really have your eggs in one basket and that breach happens and you know you should go but you’re still in love and you just don’t know what to do. It hits you because it’s not like you’re a cheater, and a liar, and I hate you, and you’re no good, and I’m leaving. It’s not that. It’s like, I’m tormented. Even though you’ve done this and I know it, I still don’t know what to do. I know I should go, but I don’t want to. And that’s why it’s such a fucked-up thing.”

All On The Cover: Vanessa Hudgens Covers InStyle Makeover

Vanessa Hudgens strikes a pose on the cover of InStyle’s special makeover issue wearing a Salvatore Ferragamo dress and Tom Binns necklace. 

Check out this interview Vanessa Hudgens did with InStyle to find out about her style icons, hair horrors, and more! 

How has your style changed since you’ve been in the spotlight?
When I was younger I wasn’t into fashion or taking big risks. Then I started paying attention to Nicole Richie and Mary-Kate Olsen and all their different looks. That inspired me. And also you learn about your body; it takes a while to know what looks good on you.

Most important lesson?
I’ve learned that short-short skirts are not the way to go. I went through that phase at 13, so I never need to go there again! I did my Hollister bell-bottom thing; then I couldn’t live without my Frankie B. jeans, little ballet flats, and T-shirts. That was cute, fun and easy.

Does Zac [Efron, Hudgens’s boyfriend] have any opinions about what you wear?
Well, truthfully, I wear what I want. It’s not about a guy, really — no disrespect — I’m just saying that I dress for myself. My style has evolved into something I’m proud of. Of course, I’m still changing and my style will too. That’s the fun of fashion!

The “Bandslam” star looks cute and casual in a Forever 21 tank.

Let me guess: Drawer full of hair tools?
Oh yeah. I’ve got a Chi ceramic flattening iron, four curling irons in different sizes, and at least two blow-dryers. One stays in the suitcase.

So if this Hollywood thing doesn’t work out, you could always be a stylist…
I’m pretty good, but my hair is always better when someone else does it! My arms get tired, and I don’t have the patience.

When you straighten your hair, you look so different.
I know! It’s weird. I’ll walk into a room and my friends don’t recognize me. It’s fun to feel so transformed by changing something so simple.

Have you always had long hair?
I had short hair only once in my life. When I was 7, I cut it myself, which I think every girl does — once. I gave myself a bob and bangs. It was really sad. I looked like I had worms on my head.

Vanessa goes glam in a Emanuel Ungaro silk top.

Any other hair disasters?
I went through a stage where I had burgundy hair, which was frightening. And I had light brown hair with light blond highlights. My friend said it looked like I’d dipped my hair in ashes. It looked so bad.

When it comes to beauty, who do you look up to?
Jennifer Lopez is downright gorgeous. She’s mastered her glow. I got kind of lucky with the glow too. It’s the Filipino in me from my mom, who has got the most amazing skin. I’m crossing my fingers that I’ll take after her.

Is the gym part of your morning routine?
It changes constantly, but recently I’ve been working out with a trainer at home. I’m doing an action movie called “Sucker Punch,” which is going to be a lot of hard work, so I have to be ready for it. We do weights and a lot of cardio. She makes me run up and down my stairs 10 times. I have a three-story house, so it’s definitely tiring.

Celebrity News: Marc Anthony To Become New Minority Owner of The Miami Dolphins

Latin singer Marc Anthony has acquired a minority interest in the Miami Dolphins football team, joining entertainers Jimmy Buffett and Gloria Estefan who also are associated with the storied sports franchise.

Anthony, who has sold more than 10 million records in his career and is married to actress and singer Jennifer Lopez, said on Tuesday that he grew up in a sports-oriented family and dreamed of being part of a franchise.

“It’s just a dream come true, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and a no-brainer,” Anthony said in a conference call with reporters.

The Dolphins, whose majority owner and general partner is real estate developer Stephen Ross, played their first game in 1966 and are the only professional football team to have enjoyed a perfect season, winning all their games and the Super Bowl in the 1972/1973 season.

Anthony expects to be an active part of the Dolphins organization working in Miami to drum up community support for the team.

Estefan and her husband, record producer Emilio Estefan, also are minority partners in the team, and “Margaritaville” singer Buffet recently announced a promotional partnership that included renaming Dolphin Stadium to LandShark Stadium, named after Buffett’s LandShark lager.

Anthony‘s involvement with the Dolphins was announced at a news conference in New York City. Financial details were not disclosed.

Anthony is also set to perform the national anthem in ESPN‘s “Monday Night Football’ on Oct. 12 at the game against the New York Jets for the NFL‘s celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, says the AP.
