Jennifer Lopez hates "old & haggard" People magazine cover, thinks Casper should find a young girlfriend

Uh-oh! It looks like Jennifer Lopez's weekend is off to a bad start. The star is featured in the the latest issue of People magazine and apparently, she (and her entire team) is not too happy with the photo chosen for the cover!


Lopez reportedly timed the magazine interview to coincide with Mariah Carey's first appearance on American Idol…but I guess things didn't go exactly as planned as her camp reportedly think the picture makes her look "haggard and old." In fact, according to Page Six, the singer's friends are comparing her style and hair in snapshot to that of 70-year-old designer Betsey Johnson! Jeez, I would hardly go that far.

Of course, Lopez's manager has denied the reports and insisted that everyone is happy with the final results of both the picture and the story.

Being unhappy with your latest People cover? That's quite a diva problem to have! Personally, I think she actually looks great in this photo and even better than she has in many others. Okay, maybe her straight bangs and hair aren't up to par with her usual sexy, glamorous curls ... but otherwise, she looks natural, fresh, and happy. Seriously, it's nice to see her all smiley and with what looks like barely any makeup on her face!

But apparently, the cover photo isn't the only thing making Lopez contemplate her age. In the magazine interview, she reveals that she has thought about if and how her relationship with 25-year-old Casper Smart could work in the long-term. "I ask him, 'Why don't you go find a young girlfriend and get out of here? What do you want with me?' And you think, 'How long is this gonna be?' " she said.

Hmm ... as refreshing as it is to hear Lopez give such candid response to a personal topic, it's also a little surprising because that certainly doesn't sound like the confident J. Lo I'm used to! But, don't worry...that didn't last too long. "We're loving this moment right now. We make each other happy," she also added.

And I don't blame her! It doesn't matter what her age is--Lopez is gorgeous, succesful and most importantly, a mom to two beautiful kids! Why shouldn't she be sporting a big smile?
