Jennifer Lopez Isn't Sure If She'll Marry Casper Smart
"I don't know. We'll see. I don't know," she told reporters during a TCA panel for her FOX singing competition. "You know, I've always believed in that institution. I believe in it, but it is difficult. I've had my challenges, but at the same time I believe in love, and I think that is the main thing."
"I'm one of those people who does not like to be alone," she said. "I have no shame saying that at this point in my life. I think we have to own who we are."
And rightly so. Lopez said that her brief hiatus from Idol gave her time to find herself.
"That was such a transformative year for me in so many ways," she said. "I had just divorced, I went on tour with the kids, and I left Idol. All my security blankets were gone, and I was out there doing something I had never done before."
"I was surrounded by love and family," the 44-year-old continued. "I really grew. My goal was not to come out the other side and just survive it but grow as a human being as well as an artist, and I felt I did. I learned a lot."
