Why Jennifer Lopez Is Defending Her New Alcohol Brand

After years of refraining from alcohol, Jennifer Lopez, who just started a cocktail line, clarified that she does "enjoy the occasional cocktail."It's a myth that Jennifer Lopez doesn't consume alcohol.


The multi-hyphenate, who introduced her cocktail line Delola in April, recently responded to criticism from fans after several of them noted that she is well-known for abstaining from alcohol.

I am aware that many people have remarked, "Oh, she doesn't even drink, what's she doing with a cocktail queue?" In an Instagram video on July 4, Jennifer said. "To tell you the truth, that was true for a very long time—I didn't drink."

J.Lo revealed that she modified her attitude towards drinking within the last 10 to 15 years.

"I do enjoy the occasional cocktail," she continued. "I do drink responsibly, I don't drink to get s--t-faced. I drink to be social and have a nice time."

Why did the Hustlers actress want to launch her own booze line? Simply stated, she said, "Like anything else in my life, I created it myself to fit my lifestyle to drink, the way that I would drink-the way Jennifer drinks."

When Jennifer originally revealed Delola in April, her Instagram fans were sceptical of her new endeavour.

At that time, one user said, "This is disappointing. "Given that you've spoken out against the harmful effects of alcohol and that you don't drink yourself, why don't you start a NA brand? I'm honestly intrigued as to why you're selling booze because this feels so off-brand for you.

Someone else commented, "But you don't drink? Why would we then purchase booze from a person who doesn't even consume their own product?

Over the years, the JLO Beauty founder has shared her reasoning for trying to avoid alcohol in her diet.

"I think that ruins your skin," she told InStyle in 2015. "Of course, during celebratory toasts, everybody's like, 'You can't toast with water!' So I'll toast with alcohol and just take a sip."

A few years later, she maintained to the outlet that the key to her coveted glow was due to staying away from alcohol and caffeine. "I've taken care of myself," she said in a 2018 cover story, "and now it shows."
