Jennifer Lopez Shares What She Told Her Daughter About Recent Protests: When Things Change, It Hurts A Bit

Jennifer Lopez is sharing a conversation she had with her daughter about international protests amid the deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.

During a recent interview, the actress, singer, and dancer first opened up about the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on her household.

‘You know, it’s not easy. And during this pandemic I think everybody had a moment when they were depressed or they were scared about what was going to happen.”

The mom of 12-year-old twins Max and Emme spoke on her own experience and said:


“I had a lot of moments where I felt really bad, my kids too, everybody in the house.”

She added how she got through those moments and said:

“Do a little workout at home, do something that’s going to make you feel good. Cook something you like, lift yourself up, keep going.”

She continued and said she also spoke to her daughter about recent protests amid civil unrest in the nation.


“(There was a) moment in which Emme, my daughter, came to my bed and was crying, ‘Why is this happening? I miss my friends. Why is this happening in our life?’ Everything that was going on, and there were protests and a lot of things they were seeing. (I told her) sometimes things need to change, and when things change sometimes it hurts a bit. But it will always be for the good of everyone.”

She added:

“Sometimes you have to live those moments and you have to stay strong and grateful in those moments, because we have so much. We have our health, we’re together, we have love.”
