You know how sometimes celebrities utter sentences, and you see or hear the words, and they are words that you know, words in English, and you understand these words separately, on their own, but strung together in the order in which the celebrity has arranged them, they make no sense at all? No? Well here is an example, via 43-year-old Jennifer Lopez, from the February 2013 issue of Harper's Bazaar:
When Lopez gets her J. Lo on, it's as if she has an inbuilt wind machine. The machine around her is massive too: Along with her family and her longtime manager, Benny Medina, she has assistants, hair and makeup, security, a trainer, tour managers, and on and on. "I like the whole idea of traveling, of looking good, and doing it well," she says. "I make it as simple and as beautiful as I can because my life is kind of big. So I pack my luggage, or dress myself, or comb my kids' hair, pick up their clothes — that makes our life beautiful, you know? There's something very elegant in that."
She packs her own luggage or dresses herself or combs her kids' hair and that is what makes life beautiful? MINDSPLOSION. Or…Ok. Sure. Keep in mind that the story accompanying this quote mentions that Lopez, at various moments:
- is standing on the terrace of the Ciragan Palace hotel in Istanbul
- is wearing Versace
- is wearing an "epic cashmere scarf"
- is "absorbed with a studded Hermès cuff in a magazine"
- is on a yacht on the Bosporous
- is "philosophical, you know, now that I'm 25."
- characterizes her mental age as "16 to 18."
- talks about starring in a film with Jason Statham: "It's one of those action movies that's kind of cooler, you know?"
- is asked about that famous versace dress from 2000 and says: "The other day, my housekeeper put it on a mannequin in my spa, where I get my hair and makeup done."
Got it: Simple and beautiful.
