Musician autobiographies are all the rage these days it seems. First, Morrissey publishes an autobiography that sets first week book sales in the UK, then we learn that Courtney Love is planning to publish her autobiography by the end of the year. Today we learn that popstar Jennifer Lopez is also planning to publish an autobiography of her own which, I must admit, sounds insanely interesting to me. Considering all the love affairs that J. Lo has enjoyed over the years, her memoir has the potential to be very juicy. But just how juicy J. Lo will get remains to be seen. HMMM.
Jennifer Lopez has announced that she’s writing a book about one specific period in her life: the time period after her split with ex-husband Marc Anthony. The 44-year-old entertainer revealed that she’ll be sharing very personal experiences in the book during an interview with People en Español. “I understood a lot of things about myself and my relationships, things I needed to learn,” she said of her eight-year marriage, which legally ended in 2011. Lopez also said that she’d love to have more children; she became a mother of twins at age 38. She revealed: “I’d love to have more children. I’d love to have someone to share the rest of my life with, of course, who doesn’t want that? But I don’t know … I don’t know what the future has in store for me. This is what I do know: I’m fine. Before I wasn’t fine. The book is about that too, (feeling that) you’re fine.” Her book is slated to be released next year.
Wait, what? J. Lo’s memoir will only cover the time of her life after she split with her most recent ex-husband Marc Anthony? What about her other earlier husbands? What about her time with P. Diddy? What about her time with Ben Affleck? She’s not going to write about that time of her life? What the eff is the point then. While I am very interested in read all about J. Lo’s life (including her early days as a Fly Girl on In Living Color), I really don’t care to read anything if she’s only going to talk about the last few (and, IMHO, boring) years of her life. I guess not all musician autobiographies are meant to be all that alluring.
