After recently becoming single, the 44 year-old singer feels refreshed and has a new-found confidence about her career: "I don't feel like I have anything to prove anymore."
Jennifer Lopez is enjoying being single.
The 44 year-old songstress recently split from her boyfriend Casper Smart, after two and a half years of dating, but she seems to be coping very well.
With this most recent separation, Lopez recently admitted to discovering her confidence once again.
The revelation came when the star featured cover of Billboard magazine's July 2014 issue.
"I don't feel like I have anything to prove anymore," Lopez told the mag. "Things have changed so much for me."
Adding, "I had to really do some soul searching and just realize a lot of things about love, and now I feel like I come from a place where I'm stronger and, I think, better."
As previously reported Casper and J-Lo, who began dating shortly after she split from ex-husband Marc Anthony, are still on amicable terms but they decided to call it quits after simply growing apart.
Now the 'Dance Again' singer is focused on promoting her brand new album 'AKA.'
"I never put myself out there to show the world what I could do in the best way I could," she told Billboard of her singing career. "And touring, you gain a lot when you go out there every night and sing when you feel good, or even when your voice is scratchy and you feel a little off. It made me want to get back into the studio without that cage I had put on myself. Once I let that beast loose, I was doing things I didn't know I could do."
As a newly single mother, Lopez cannot really determine what will happen in the near future, but this is something she embraces.
"I don't know what I'm going to be doing in the next six months. I really don't. And that's OK for me," she said. "Because what I like is, whatever happens is supposed to happen. And I'm good. I can roll with that."
