Most read in Celebrity”Even though she has been dedicated to her marriage and kids, she’s very busy.”‘HEAVY WORKLOAD’Despite several reports about her workload causing issues in her marriage, she told the Associated Press this week that she has slowed her career down, insisting she goes at “half” the speed she used to.She also alleged she has “been doing things that are really exciting” or “inspiring” to her as opposed to “doing just everything.”Jennifer Lopez appears stressed during LA outing without Ben Affleck- but star keeps ring on despite divorce rumorsJennifer released her comeback album, “This Is Me … Now”, earlier this year, which only debuted at number 38 on the Billboard 200 – despite it being her first record in a decade.
