Just because she's 40 and has a couple of kids, don't think Jennifer Lopez still can't be J.Lo -- and glamorously curvy, too, as this photo from the new Elle magazine (inset) proves.
"This is what I do," the singer-dancer-actress tells Elle. "What, because I have kids and a husband now, I'm not supposed to be me?"
That was definitely her in the skintight cat suit on "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve," and that's definitely her on the new album "Love?"
"I'm a more heightened me, if anything," Lopez said. "Everything I wanted before, I want twice as much now. And that doesn't mean material things."
As for her age, it's nothing but a number.
"Being an artist doesn't start because you're 21, and it doesn't end because you're 51," the diva said. "You are who you are until the day you die."
