There must be something in the water or in the air because it seems that every celebrity in the business has been talking about their parenting skills. Angelina Jolie praised Brad Pitt at the start of the month, Brian Austin Green praised Megan Fox after that, then Madonna discussed her parenting skills and more recently Jessica Alba talked about parenting. Now it is the turn of American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez.
Lopez explained, “They do something to you where you want to do everything right for them…And obviously no parent does everything right. It’s this weird thing that happens where you are striving to be as good as you can be so that they turn out well.”
She added, “That requires that you be a really great, evolved, aware person in every moment. Which is pretty awesome. But it’s also putting tremendous pressure on yourself—which is why women feel so guilty!” Jennifer then admitted that her ex husband Marc Anthony has been vital in building her self confidence.
Lopez continued, “He always told me what a beautiful voice I have. He was like, ‘It’s in there; you just gotta let it out. It’s a confidence thing with you.’ Then all of a sudden one day I was like, I’m good at this!”
