If it weren’t enough that her divorce has been splashed over the covers of every tabloid in the country, now the details of Jennifer Lopez‘s private struggles will go very public in Vanity Fair‘s September style issue.
Lopez dominates the cover of the magazine wearing a deep-cut white dress, a stunning diamond bracelet, and — this is awkward — the 8.2-carat engagement ring singer Marc Anthony gave her, which is almost exactly kitty corner from a cover story proclaiming “her first post-split interview!”
Lopez is understandably upset that her marriage is ending, but says she’s a big believer in love — and she consoles herself with the knowledge that she did everything she could to make it work.
“That was my biggest dream, and I really worked hard at it. We both did,” Jennifer Lopez tells Vanity Fair in her first interview since announcing that she and Marc Anthony are divorcing. “Sometimes it doesn’t work—and that’s sad. But I remain an eternal optimist about love. I believe in love,” Lopez says. “It’s still my biggest dream. I am positive—determined to move forward with my life, bring up my babies, and do the best job I can as a mother, entertainer, and person. I now look forward to new challenges. I feel strong.”
And we’re happy for her — and for Vanity Fair, which got this cover printed in the nick of time. Lopez and Anthony announced that they would divorce on July 15, so it must have been a real scramble to stop the presses and make a new cover headline happen — though we can’t help but point out that they clearly forgot about the ring. Oops?

this is some kind of spaceship or something.
