Jennifer Lopez, Instagram

This photo could have definitely served as the inspiration for Jennifer Lopez's song "Booty."

J.Lo shared a very sexy selfie on Instagram Thursday, giving fans a peek at her gorgeous curves. Wearing a black bodysuit, the Selena actress stares directly into the mirror and gives fans some uplifting advice. "#loveyourselffirst #feelingempowered #healthybodyhealthymind," she captioned the photo.

The "Jenny From the Block" singer has shared plenty of steamy selfies in the past, but at the beginning of her career she was told to lose weight so that she wouldn't have her famous curves. "They kept telling me to lose weight, and I was a dancer and I was athletic and even my manager at the time who I no longer work with um was telling me, 'You need to lose weight. You need to be thinner,'" she recalled at an event for Shades of Blue.

"I was like, 'No I don't. If I lose any more weight it won't be me.' You know what I mean?"

Lopez was relieved to hear that she had once inspired a young woman to stop wearing sweatshirts around her waist, but she also admitted that the ever-changing times also probably contributed.

"It's a different time now you know, which is awesome to see for me where it is about our differences. It's about all the diversity," she continued.

"It's just a more accepting time of everything whether it's body type or race or gender. We've come a long way."

Looking good, girl!
