The 44-year-old looks better than ever, flaunting her toned tummy on ‘Cosmopolitan’ for their October 2013 issue. Inside, she dishes about her past and present relationships — see what she had to say!

Jennifer Lopez is looking beautiful on the cover of Cosmopolitan‘s October issue! The a-list star shows off her figure in a fitted pair of black lace pants and a divine vest that reveals her stunning abs and ample cleavage. The 44-year-old star is fully coming into her own after revealing her new found confidence — and she credits her ex-husband!

Jennifer Lopez’s Insecurities — How Marc Antony Helped Her Become Confident:

Although she’s such a superstar on stage, JLo admitted that she was actually very insecure over her singing — and it was her ex-hubby, Marc Anthony, who helped her get over it. “It was after I had kids to be honest…The biggest insecurity I had was my singing. Even though I had sold 70 million records, there was this feeling like, I’m not good at this. And while I was married to Marc, he helped me get over it. He kept telling me, ‘You’re the only one holding yourself back from reaching your full potential as a singer. You have to let go’…I was always so insecure and just kind of going along. Then I grew, little by little, and realized, wait a minute, this is not a fluke. I’m not a mistake – I work my ass off. And I know what I’m doing,” she tells the mag.

Jennifer Lopez On Her Relationship with Casper Smart:
When it comes to love, JLo has moved on with her 26-year-old beau, choreographer Casper Smart . “For me, it’s about having a great partner to walk this life with. I have my own high standards for what I want in a partner and how I want to be treated. I bring a lot to the table. I’m not talking about material things but what I have to offer as a person – love and loyalty and all the things that make a good relationship,” she says.

Jennifer Lopez On Commitment:
She also dished on commitment. “It’s funny, early on with Beau, I remember telling him how I have a real button on being ignored. And he was like, ‘Listen, if somebody ignores you, then forget them. They don’t deserve to have your attention.’ But it’s funny. Sometimes when we don’t get it, we try to get it in a negative way, you know?”

Jennifer Lopez On Business:
Aside from her love life, she also gave us a glimpse on how she manages her businesses. “Everybody in there might be more business-minded, but for me, if I’m talking about marketing or promotion or why a piece of clothing is made, it all comes from an emotion. I’m more of an artist, so when I’m able to use that muscle, I feel like I’m in my element.”

We think it’s so great that the down-to-earth star opened up to the mag — and there’s no denying the fact that she looked simply stunning while doing so! Do you agree?

Finally, she appreciates Marc Anthony who is a great singer, legend. He thought her so many things which she forgets about it.
She leaves him and now, 2 kids are being carried everywhere. This woman cares only for herself.

Let us see when she will dump Casper too.

Super fun and flirty style for the article. Its written in a way that I can actually hear the writers voice through her words, “don’t you think?” ;) JLo has always captured hearts and this article proves no different to the extraordinary talent that she is. Great job.

She has no talent, can’t sing, can’t act! No talent, no integrity, no morals!
