Jennifer Lopez Has Nicknamed Her Twins “The Coconuts”

Posted by PZ on February 14th, 2012

Jennifer Lopez has come up with a unique nickname for her twins Max and Emme, who are currently aged 3. Jennifer likes to call them ‘the coconuts’ because of how they both looked when they began to grow hair for the first time, while she even has a special coconut necklace which reminds her of them:

“The twins are so good, they’re about to turn four. They’re my coconuts, that comes from when they were little and in their cribs and started growing hair, it looked just like a coconut to me, they both look like coconuts. I have this beautiful necklace which was given to me at Christmas, there are two coconuts and their initials on it.”

Speaking on recieving guidance from P Diddy when she first launched her singing career, Jennifer said that he helped her figure out the music business, while he also offered his opinion on some of her first tracks, which helped her figure out what was important about her music:

“I had a lot of mentors, Puffy aka Diddy now, when I first met him I was making my first album and he gave me a lot of insight into the music business, he helped me a lot. He did say one thing to me that was funny, I was recording music for my first album and I played a song for him and said, ‘What do you think’ and he said, ‘I hate it. It’s not good, it won’t be a hit,’ and I said, ‘I love it’, standing up for myself,’ and he said, ‘Good, you can listen to it in your living room because you’re the only one.'”

Jennifer felt she learned an important lesson from what he said because she realized that her music had to relate to everyone and not just herself:

“It stayed with me because he’s right – as an artist it’s not just about touching you, everybody has to relate to it, that’s the main thing so i really learned from that, even though he was tough with the message. [But] the song was still on the first album.”
