She may rock Louboutins and an eight-figure income, but Jennifer Lopez proved she is still just Jenny from the block in a new interview with Big Boy this week.
The “American Idol” judge sat down with the Power 106 radio personality, where she candidly answered questions about her favorite expletive, iconic backside and which famous ex-boyfriend she’d save from drowning.
Here’s what she had to say:
Craziest Rumor She’s Heard About Herself? “There’s so many. There’s this rumor that I need to have everything white all the time, that’s been around – that I want white couches and white things, and like, I won’t enter the room [unless it’s all white] – like, crazy things… those are the ones that I hate because it makes you sound like a crazy person.”
Favorite Curse Word? “Probably f**k. I mean, I say it a lot. Like, ‘It was so f*****n’ crazy!’ I just feel like there’s no other word that can replace it really when you’re describing things. It is the best descriptive word in the English language.”
Does She Understand The Fascination With Her Booty? “No, I don’t. I guess in a sense, in Hollywood, it’s a little bit of a novelty. But for us, who grew up where we grew up, it wasn’t that big of a deal! And that’s why I mentioned it early on in my career, because for me it was just such a normal thing. It became [a thing] because I brought light to it. I have nobody to blame but myself! I brought attention to it by speaking about it in interviews when I was young and then it was like, ‘Oh, well let’s check it out and see what’s there!’ From when I was very young, my family would be like, ‘Jennifer’s got a [big butt].’ I was endowed in that area.”
If She Was On A Raft In The Ocean, Saw Ben Affleck And Diddy Floating, And Could Only Save One, Who Would It Be? “I’d let both those motherf******s drown! That’s terrible – I’m just joking. Ben, Puffy, you know I love you. You know that. They know it.”
Has She Ever Physically Beaten Anyone Up? “I was in the second or third grade. I did push her down… I’m not [gangsta]. You know what I remember about that fight is that my friends pushed me to fight this girl that I didn’t wanna fight. You know how girls do that? We’re talking like 8 or 9 years old now – it’s ridiculous. Like, ‘She’s talking about you. You need to beat her up!’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah… I need to beat her up.’… It was so stupid. It was so dumb. I feel bad about it now. Now I’m thinking about, now the memory’s making me feel depressed.”
