Jennifer Lopez has an interview with Elle Canada as part of her December cover issue for the magazine.
In the interview, Lopez talks about setting a good example for her children, saying, “I hope I'm teaching them about life by example. Like that with hard work you can accomplish anything; you have to be charitable; that you have to treat people the way you want them to treat you. You can tell kids things until you're blue in the face, like, 'Don't drink!' But if you drink all day, they're going to probably wind up drinking. They will pick up on that. I just try to be a good mom and set a good example."
She also talks about television project about lesbians that’s still in development, saying, “When you're doing your own show, you can craft things exactly the way you want them. Nobody gets to interpret it for you. It was really nice to be able to do that.I think, as an artist, I wanted to really how all the different parts and sides of who I am: people see me as who I really am, then me as a mom and then where I am in my life today. I feel like that journey is super-important. There's no way I could leave them out, you know?"
Finally, she talks about the biggest influence in her life, saying, “I would have to say the women who raised me: my mother and my grandmother. They were very powerful, very strong Puerto Rican women. And they taught me everything I know about working hard, being proper and being a lady."
