Jennifer Lopez: "I Don’t Feel Like I Have Anything to Prove Anymore"

At age 44, Jennifer Lopez is at the top of her game: she's a mom, a musician, a producer, entrepreneur and designer with a multi-million dollar empire that rakes in $52 million a year.  It's no wonder she tells Billboard for the magazine's new cover story, "I don’t feel like I have anything to prove anymore.”  J-Lo tells Billboard that her confidence was boosted by her 2012 tour with Enrique Iglesias, which grossed more than $21 million bucks.  "After I got home, I realized I was a stronger vocalist than maybe even I gave myself credit for," she says of…
