Jennifer Lopez: A Kimono Chic Celebration in Tokyo for Twins Emme and Max’s Sweet 16!

This week in Japan, Jennifer Lopez embraced the culture by trying on a traditional Japanese outfit known as a kimono.

She was captured sitting cross-legged on a mat while participating in a Japanese tea ceremony with others. Engrossed in the process, the Bronx-born star listened attentively as the rituals were explained to her.

Jennifer has shown her dedication as a loving mother since the arrival of her twins in 2008. The A-list celebrity opened up about feeling guilty for any negative effects her fame may have on Max and Emme.

She expressed empathy for her children, stating that growing up in the shadow of famous parents is something not many people can relate to. Jennifer shared that her kids have started to share experiences of how they are treated differently due to their mom’s fame.

In an interview with Audacy, the Selena star mentioned starting conversations with her children about the challenges they may face. Recently, she proudly introduced Emme using gender-neutral pronouns on stage in 2022.

Jennifer also talked about the struggle of seeing her kids being unfairly judged by strangers. She acknowledged that people often focus more on her celebrity status rather than getting to know her children for who they truly are.

Jennifer enjoyed one 3D installation that created the illusion of being inside a kaleidoscope

Jennifer found a 3D installation that gave the impression of stepping into a kaleidoscope to be quite enjoyable.

The singer reflected on the difficulty her children face in constantly feeling like they are being watched, acknowledging the unique challenges of their upbringing. Despite not fitting the mold of a traditional stay-at-home mom, Jennifer described herself as a working single mom with the added complexity of being a famous figure, creating a non-traditional upbringing for her children. Before embarking on her This Is Me… Now Tour in June, Jennifer prioritized spending quality family time during her recent trip to Tokyo.
