Angie asked J.Lo, "The book being so personal, is that scary?" Jennifer revealed, "So scary... having just gone through the divorce before we went on tour. It was just this whole thing that was happening... it was a transformative, transitional time in my life where I discovered and faced myself... through my music.”

Lopez added that she relived her marriage troubles while recording the audio book, “I had to do the audio book of this... I didn't want to get emotional. I wanted to just be able to read the book and I had to keep stopping... it reminds you of those moments... it's definitely an emotional journey for me.”

On sharing the details of others' lives in her book, Jennifer explained, “This book was never about pointing the finger at anybody. It was really about looking in the mirror."

Reflecting on her past relationships, J.Lo said, “There was something in my relationships that wasn't lining up... the missing component was me loving myself and being able to take care of myself... they always say put on the oxygen mask first, right? But it's true... you have to love yourself."

On giving ex-husband Marc Anthony an early draft of her memoir, Jennifer said, “He read it and was like ‘Whoa, I didn't know all of this was going on’... and I was like, ‘I'm happy that you learned something, that you grew.’”

Jennifer also set the record straight on her current dating situation, saying, "No, I'm not dating right now. I just decided I was taking some time to be on my own. And be my own best friend… What does that feel like, Jen?"

As for what she would do differently in her next relationship, Jennifer admitted, "I will go slower. I think I'll be a lot more cautious."

What is the perfect guy for Lopez? "He behaves very good, he's super faithful, he's super sweet. He's funny… he doesn't have to be [famous] at all."

"True Love" is available nationwide.
