At Home with Jennifer Lopez: ‘I Still Believe in the Fairy Tale’.

Jennifer Lopez is widely known today as ‘Jenny from the Block,’ but the nuyorican singer says she knows the nickname didn’t come without some major backlash. “People are dumb enough to have thought that you meant it literally, like you were still in the ’hood, or ‘She’s changed, she’s different, she’s so rich now, she’s not the same’,” Lopez answered. “It was a huge hit at the time, so I never thought of it in any negative way. I didn’t feel like people were saying that—it’s probably better that I didn’t know.” They know I’ve been successful,” Lopez continued. “Thank God I’ve been blessed in that way. So after her break-up from Beau “Casper” Smart last spring, she knew it was time to take stock. “I had to make a commitment to myself to be alone: no flirting. I said, ‘I’m shutting it down,’ ” the star – who produced and stars in the steamy thriller The Boy Next Door (out Friday) – tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “I’d never been alone.” In a revealing interview at her sprawling home in Los Angeles, the superstar and refreshingly hands-on mother, to 6-year-old twins, Emme and Max, shares what was a sometimes-lonely journey of self-discovery. “I always found my comfort in another person,” says Lopez, whose divorce from singer Marc Anthony was finalized in June, 2014, three years after their split. “Instead of giving myself time to heal and be on my own, I was so afraid to be that I was always like, ‘Okay somebody else just come in here and help me forget I’m in so much pain.’ ” Newly empowered after facing her ultimate fear – “I was terrified of being alone” – Lopez is upbeat about the future. “Listen, at the end of the day, love is the best thing,” she says. “But what I’ve discovered is that I can’t get that from somebody else. Comments that are judged to be defamatory, abusive or in bad taste are not acceptable and contributors who consistently fall below certain criteria will be permanently blacklisted.

It’s the love inside me, for myself, that will help me through.” “I still believe in the fairy tale,” she says. “The more I work on myself, the more I give myself the opportunity to share a really deep and meaningful relationship that can give me my fairy tale and last forever.” But I also felt that the street smarts I had from growing up in New York served me well out here.” The magazine also noted that in the past Lopez “had to endure all sort of public criticism that other people haven’t,” including rumors she insisted everyone call her J.Lo. “The rumors at that time were so endless,” the actress and singer said. “I still haven’t figured that all out completely. All I know is that because I’ve stuck around for so long people realize, ‘Oh, that must not be true.’ ‘We finally got to know the real her’.” J.Lo’s Complex interview was hinged on the upcoming release of her sensual thriller “The Boy Next Door.” The star posted several pictures from the sexy photo shoot on her Instagram:
