JLo: I want to want someone

Jennifer Lopez no longer makes plans for marriage the second she meets a man.

The actress-and-singer has been married three times: first to Ojani Noa, followed weddings to Cris Judd and Marc Anthony, with whom she has twins Max and Emme, seven.

She's been dating dancer Casper Smart on and off since 2011 but is in no rush to settle down, as she's discovered a new level of independence.

"I am my own best friend," she beamed in an interview with the German edition of Cosmopolitan. "It's a feeling I'd never experienced. My whole life was always one big plan. I'd meet a man and think: When will we get married? How will we live? Is this my future?"

But Jennifer, 46, has learned to become more relaxed, commenting that now she loves everything about herself. She doesn't try to guess where things will go with Casper, 28, either.

"I do want to want someone," she concluded, "but I don't need anyone."

The stunning star is too busy to dwell on these things anyway. She's playing this year's iHeartRadio Music Festival on September 19 in Las Vegas, a warm-up for her Sin City residency at Planet Hollywood, which kicks off on January 20 2016.

"I think I've been preparing for this my whole life," she previously told ET. "I'm excited about going to Vegas [and] doing the kind of quintessential show that I've always had in my mind.

"It's gonna have everything that I've been known to do over the years, and it's gonna be a beautiful, glamorous kind of Vegas show. Something that I think people, whether you're a fan of my music or not, would come and see and really enjoy. That's my goal."
