Forget nipple slips.

Jennifer Lopez pulls out the gloves for the cover of V magazine — as well as a jockstrap.


The “American Idol” judge embraced the issue’s sports theme and voluntarily opted to wear a bulky groin protector.

“I thought it was more graphic,” Lopez says, adding that it made her feel “tougher.”

She explains, “I’ve always felt like a tough girl from the Bronx. But I have a soft core.”

Talking about the hits and misses in her personal and professional lives, Lopez notes she “can take a lot of punches and still keep going. I’ve been trained like a boxer to go 15 rounds.”

And contrary to tabloid rumors, she finds it quite easy to easy to work with estranged husband Marc Anthony on their reality series, “Q’Viva! The Chosen.”

“I mean, we’re parents and friends first. That will be the thread that ties us together,” she says.

She adds, “I don’t know if people expect it to be negative just because the [intimate] relationship didn’t work out.”
