NIcki Minaj isn’t the only former American Idol judge taking on cover duties in the month of August. Jennifer Lopez covers the latest issue of W beautifully shot by Mario Sorrenti. (Could Paula Abdul on the cover of Vogue be next?) The mag goes on a field trip with J. Lo, bringing her back to the block in the Bronx to her childhood home which made her nervous. “The last time I was in there was when my mom and dad called us home to tell us they were separating after 33 years of marriage,” she tells W’s Lynn Hirschberg. “It’s like seeing someone from the past – you’re afraid to run into them because you never know if it’s going to be ‘wow’ or very difficult. This is a combination of both.” Brave, brave woman. The new issue hits newsstands on July 16th.
