Jennifer Lopez has revealed how having therapy in her late 30s taught her to love herself.

The singer stunned the world last Wednesday as she sang at the US presidential inauguration. Now, she's opened up about her life and career with author and podcast host, Jay Shetty, in the first edition of Coach Conversations on YouTube.

J-Lo, 51, said, "I remember when I was going through therapy at the beginning, you know, kind of in my late 30s and there was a lot of talk about loving yourself and I was like, "I love myself".

She added: "But obviously I was doing all these things in like my personal relationships that didn’t seem like I was loving myself, but I didn’t even understand the concept of it.

"It took time and it’s a journey and it’s still a journey for me."

This comes after the singer's hairstylist Chris Appleton shared a sneak peek at the products behind her iconic style on inauguration morning.

The singer also spoke about "reinvention", admitting, "I don’t like that word. I’m not reinventing or trying to be something different or trying to trick people into something new. It’s an evolving."
