    Jennifer Lopez Says She's Been Single "for a Couple of Months," Is a Big Fan of Self-Help Books

    Jennifer Lopez doesn't claim to have all the answers. In fact, she's searching for guidance just like any regular person who didn't just perform at the World Cup or has a body envied by millions.

    "I'm a big soul searcher and I read a lot of, like, self-help books, you know what I mean," the pop superstar divulged in an interview airing Thursday on The Wendy Williams Show.

    "I am always kinda searching for answers. I'll randomly just open a Bible looking for answers and guidance."

    Might she be seeking relationship advice? Or the kind of life lessons that come in handy after a breakup?

    For starters, J.Lo indicated that she and Casper Smart have been broken up for longer than it seems, considering he was her date to the Billboard Music Awards exactly a month ago, on May 18.

    Asked by the ever-blunt Williams if she was single, as in "not intimate with anybody at this time," Lopez replied, "Yes, I've been single for a couple of months."

    Acknowledging that she doesn't really have a type, per se, as far as a guy's physical attributes when it comes to a potential love interest, the 44-year-old thrice-divorced mother of two said, "I don't look at the outside so much. I'm not an outside-cover person, I am more of, like, an essence of person."

    Sounds like an estimable value that can't be taught in any book.

    Meanwhile, Williams had a ready suggestion in case Lopez is looking to rebound ASAP.

    "I always just picture you having a little something something going on with Pitbull at some point in your life," she told J.Lo, at which the Out of Sight star laughed.

    "He is like a brother to me," Lopez insisted about her frequent partner in performance, including last week at the World Cup opening ceremony in Brazil. "He is Mr. Worldwide, he got no time for me. He's [got] a lot going on."

    Surely there's always room for J.Lo!
