Where Jennifer Lopez goes to relax

Between being a mom, a girlfriend and a performer, she’s in the midst of a world tour with Engrique Iglesias, it seems Jennifer Lopez really can do it all.

But the former “American Idol” judge told InStyle that even she needs a place to unwind every so often: “It’s called the bath. I don’t ask for much. I really am a simple girl from the Bronx. Just a nice bathroom with a tub and hot water.”

And she insists, “I’m the same as any parent.”

See how Jennifer’s look has changed over the years

“I feel the pressures of wanting to be a great parent and of wanting to do right by my children,” Lopez told InStyle. “I feel the pressure of knowing you can’t be perfect even though you want to be. One thing I’ve learned: Being a mom, or a dad, is the most important job there is. It doesn’t matter who you are. You have to embrace it for everything that it is.”

Lopez said she lives by the mantra, “God doesn’t give you anything you can’t handle.”

“It’s not until something bad or difficult happens that you really get to grow,” she said. “And then you realize that those difficult moments, the times when you feel pain, are when you do a lot of your growing. You realize: There’s no reason to be terrified of things. Either way I’m going to be OK.”

    Lmao, this lady is so full of herself, lives in LaLa Land, and needs a good mental health check. For her to honestly believe she's home long enough to be a mom or participating one, give me a break, it's called nannies and housekeepers galore! She is simple, that I agree with, but no longer a "girl" as she's 8 yrs from turning 50. Someone needs to tell her she's not young anymore, since she still thinks she is and is desperately trying so hard to stay in her 20's. I used to really like her, but not anymore. Once she turned wacko, egotistical, cares more about her showbiz gigs and chasing men then her kids then I lost all respect and despise her. Please, enough of this boring, old, attention/man seekingho. She's worn out, in more ways than one....

      Any woman can be a great mom with millions of dollars and a staff of nannies and maids to help with the kid.

      willy wonka- Exactly! JLo must believe because she spends tons of money on nannies & maids to care for her kids 24/7, well, that automatically makes her mom of the year! Being away from your kids most of the year while fullfilling showbiz obligations, doing interviews, chasing guys, or hosting tv shows makes her a horrible and disengaged mother. How anyone could think this lady is a great mother is beyond my comprehension.
