Jennifer Lopez Speaks On the Rebellious Nature of Her Kids & How It’s Not a Bad Thing

Jennifer Lopez is letting us in on what it’s like to raise two rebellious teenagers, and her insight on their “challenging” outlook may not be quite what you’re expecting.

On Wednesday, the multihyphenate sat down with talk show host Hoda Kotb on TODAY to chat about her upcoming action movie, The Mother — so they of course had to talk about the ins and outs of motherhood at this stage in Lopez’s life. Of her 15-year-old twins, Max and Emme, Lopez remarked in a crazed voice, “They’re giving it to me!”

She continued, “Listen, they’re becoming adults. They are challenging everything in life. They’re looking at everything, and these kids have so much information — so much more than we had — so they’re thinking and talking about things and about life in a different way than I did when I was 15 or 16 years old,” the actress explained.

After Kotb expressed that she feels like their generation “followed the rules,” the “Let’s Get Loud” singer exclaimed, “Yes! And they don’t!”
