Jennifer Lopez is featured on Vogue's cover

Jennifer Lopez is the cover star of Vogue, and she spoke to the magazine about her marriage to Ben Affleck, her political views, and her newfound confidence. Lopez tied the knot with Ben Affleck in Las Vegas back in July, and the following month they enjoyed another lavish three-day wedding at her new husband's Georgia estate.

As their romance is far from traditional, the actress explained that their marriage is also a “modern thing”, revealing that she is “proud” to take her husband's surname and finds the move “empowering”.

“People are still going to call me Jennifer Lopez. But my legal name will be Mrs. Affleck because we’re joined together. We’re husband and wife. I’m proud of that. I don’t think that’s a problem”.

she said.

Reflecting on the early days of their romance, she said:

“We were so young and so in love at that time, really very carefree, with no kids, no attachments.

And we were just living our lives, being happy and out there. It didn’t feel like we needed to hide from anybody or be real discreet. We were just living out loud, and it turned out to really bite us. There was a lot underneath the surface there, people not wanting us to be together, people thinking I wasn’t the right person for him”.

During the interview, politics was also discussed, and Jennifer promised to talk more about injustice after she previously thought that these were not topics she should talk about.

The Latina singer shocked fans when she reversed her decision to stay out of politics and delivered a bold "political message about immigration" during her 2020 Super Bowl halftime performance, which featured "Latino kids in cages singing Born in the USA."

Speaking about her change of heart, Jennifer explained:

“Early in my career people would ask about politics, but I always felt like people didn’t really want to hear from an actor or somebody who sang pop songs,” she remembers.

“Like a shut-up-and-dance kind of situation. I didn’t have the confidence, and I didn’t want to make a mistake. But you get to a point in your life where you realize, if something’s wrong, you say it. If you’re not doing something about it then you’re kind of complicit.

Whether it was kids in cages, or kids getting shot in the street by police—all these things where it was just like, What the hell is going on around here? When did we lose our way? There were so many awful, ugly attitudes coming to light.

It was really sad because it didn’t need to be political. It was about being a good person, loving your neighbor, all the things that people say they stand for but then they don’t practice because somebody’s not the same as them or somebody has a different se*ual orientation or gender identity or a different race.

It’s like, Really? You can’t just do you? You can’t just be you and be happy and let somebody else be happy too?”

Lopez took a series of photos for the issue, and in addition to the one on the cover where she is "hanging" from a tree in a long red dress, a more challenging issue in which she emphasized her chiseled abs attracted attention. For this photo, JLo posed in a white corset, a black jacket, and a long black leather skirt.
