We all know Jennifer Lopez, and that's cuz the multitalented mogul's been dancing, singing, and acting for nearly 30 years!
Earlier this summer, the superstar celebrated her 50th birthday by going on a 38-country world tour titled "It's My Party." But as she recently revealed, some folks didn't understand why she wanted to highlight her age.
"Everybody thought I was crazy when I wanted to go out and let everybody know that I was 50," she revealed in a recent YouTube vlog. "But for me, it was important."
"It was important as a woman to do that; to let people know that you don’t get to write women off at a certain point in their life," she continued. "You don’t get to write people off."
JLo also said she didn't realize that being her unapologetic self, embracing her age, and continuing to live her dreams would "mean so much to so many people."
The moral of the story? I'll let JLo tell it herself: "You’re getting better and better as you go, so long as you are open to the experience of growing and evolving."
WHEW!!! A WORD. THANKS FOR THESE MOTIVATIONAL GEMS, JLO <3
