Jennifer Lopez looks glamorous in a red Bottega Veneta gown on the cover of American Vogue’s April 2012 shape issue.

The rest of her editorial shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott sees the sexy American Idol judge wear red hot looks by Michael Kors and Valentino.

Between judging on American Idol, her music projects and the imminent release of her latest movie, ‘What to Expect When You’re Expecting’, Jennifer has a very busy spring ahead of her.
In the magazine, Jennifer talks about her diva image, boyfriend Casper and motherhood.

On her diva image: “Sometimes I think it’s just because I have a nice car and I’m not afraid to wear a big fur.”

On her demeanor: “By nature I am not tough, believe it or not. No. I am a lover. And with my kids I am even softer. I realize with my son, I have to sometimes be tough, especially now when he’s pushing boundaries. With my daughter, I can get a little stern with her and she pretty much will listen. But my son will just scream and yell and run. I’m like, Aaaaah, what do I do with this?!”

On her boyfriend, Casper: “He’s adorable. But you already see that. He’s a good egg. I don’t want to talk about it too much. It’s my private thing.”

On starting out being insecure: “I think of myself on that day at the studio on Long Island and how insecure I was about my own talent. I just never really gave myself any credit. And because of that, nobody else did either. You mirror what the world mirrors to you.”

On ex Marc Anthony giving her confidence: “He always told me what a beautiful voice I have. He was like, ‘It’s in there; you just gotta let it out. It’s a confidence thing with you.’ Then all of a sudden one day I was like, I’m good at this!”
