In a recent interview with Harper’s Bazaar , Jennifer Lopez explains why age is nothing but a number to her and how she applies that adage to her love life with boy toy Casper Smart as well. The singer/dancer/actress turns 44 (and looks damn good) this year but she tells the popular magazine that her mental age is “16-18”. Jennifer goes on to say, “That’s when I became the person that I am, even though I didn’t realize the whole journey I would go on, I still feel all that youthfulness.” Read the entire interview in this months issue of Harper’s. But anyways….
Is it just me or does this statement explain a lot of Jennifer’s behavior and choices in her love life she’s exhibited over the past decade? Its all fine and dandy when your boyfriend or husband makes you feel young and vibrant. However, at 44, one should not MENTALLY feel like a 16-18 year old. Maybe physically, but I would say Jlo’s body falls more in line with a 25 year old. She looks amazing! And perhaps feels the same. But mentally, especially in the game of love, we all have to think as adults. Lopez is a mother to 4 year old twins first and foremost. Is it wise for a mother to mentally think like teenager? We’ve all seen the hit show “Teen Mom” and how ill advised a majority of those mothers are. The show seems to glorify teen pregnancy more than it warns of its consequences. Sorry, I sort of went off on a tangent there, but you all get my point right? Note to Jennifer, boo boo, your twins need a mother that thinks like a sound adult, not a lovestruck teenager trying to keep up with her young boytoy.
