I’m not raunchier than any other female pop artist’: J-Lo

LONDON — She had the public up in arms with her skimpy stage costume on Britain’s Got Talent, but Jennifer Lopez reckons she’s no raunchier than any other pop stars out there.

The 43-year-old had everyone talking with her raunchy performance during the ITV family show last month, with many deeming her skimpy bodysuit far too revealing.

The mother-of-two told the Daily Telegraph : “I don’t think I’m any racier than any other female pop artist. OK, I’ll wear a sexy outfit, but I think it’s more because my body shape’s a little different to other body shapes, so that’s not very fair.”

At the time Jennifer claimed her leather look was just “standard stage clothes,” while insisting show bosses knew what they were in for as they asked her to deliver the exact same performance as the Billboard Awards earlier in the month.

With all the attention on her looks, the stunning chart-topper admits to loving her body, but she does recall a time when she wasn’t so in shape.

“I remember when I had baby fat and my thighs were so out of proportion to my ankles,” she insists.

“Then I remember dropping weight and being quite thin. Then, when I got pregnant, I remember watching my back, belly and butt grow and thinking, I will never be the same again,” she tells The Telegraph.

The star insists it took a “whole year of hard work” to get back to her pre-pregnancy shape after giving birth to her twins Max and Emme in 2008.

With dancer and choreographer Casper Smart as a boyfriend though, it looks like the mother has no trouble keeping up her fitness regime.

Jennifer and her 26-year-old beau struck up a relationship earlier this year, with the singer cautiously admitting that things are going well. Following her separation from husband Marc Anthony in 2011 Jennifer was adamant she wanted to “grow” from the experience: “When Marc and I decided to separate, ‘I thought, I’m not going to let this turn me into someone unhopeful who doesn’t believe (in love) anymore.’

“I didn’t want to just survive it. I wanted to grow from it. And I did learn a lot.”
