Jennifer Lopez Isn’t Gonna Give Up On Love!
A few weeks ago, Jennifer Lopez was making the media rounds to promote ¡QViva!, and she popped by The Late Show with David Letterman. During her interview, she firmly declared (after some moderate brow beating) that she still believes in love! I think it’s safe to say, over the years the rumor mills have gotten a fair amount of traction from JLo’s love life (from her first husband to sun tanning on yachts with former fiance Ben Affleck to her current “friendly” divorce with Marc Anthony…). Despite her ups and downs though, its not hard to see why this powerful Latina still has faith in love!
Some would say that Jennifer’s track record might disqualify her from giving advice in matters of love…but I disagree! If we look back, there really are quite a few helpful lessons that can be learned from Lopez’s lyrics, and here are my favorite 3!
1. Love is worth the wait…”Waiting for Tonight“
One of this gringa’s (and probably everyone else’s) fave JLo tunes from the 90’s! This catchy party hit let’s us know that the right one will come along at some point, and hey, you just have to hold on and you’ll get that person in your arms!
2. Love isn’t about the material things…”Love Don’t Cost A Thing“
So, maybe some of us don’t have the financial security that Lopez does at this point but the argument stands, love can’t be bought…its just not available in stores!
3. Love is a learning process… “Never Gonna Give Up“
In the arena of love, there is good and there is bad and (let’s be honest) there’s mediocre, but it’s a process. Sometimes, the good things come to an end and the bad things take over, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up on love! Learn and move on!
