After making the rounds on several talk shows recently, including a hilarious appearance on “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon,” Jennifer Lopez spent some time chatting with Seth Meyers. Lopez used her “Late Night With Seth Meyers” appearance to talk about her crazy work schedule, her Las Vegas residency and the injury she sustained while recording a song.
First, Lopez explained how she ended up with a black eye, which Meyers assumed happened on the set of “Shades of Blue.”
No, it didn’t happen while she was performing a dangerous stunt. Lopez, who revealed she sometimes lies down while recording songs, said a heavy microphone fell on her face during a studio session. “It was literally a 50-pound weight… fell on my face… and I started bleeding,” said Lopez.
She then talked about how difficult it is to pull of a high-intensity Vegas show AND record a TV series at the same time.
Lopez compared her Vegas performances to running a marathon: “It’s exhausting. But I did it to myself. Because I created the [Vegas] show. Everything was my idea.”
Meyers also asked about the moment when one of Lopez’s dancers got engaged — in the middle of a show.

Lopez explained that, at first, she couldn’t tell if her dancer accepted the proposal. Lopez told Meyers: “The minute he came out she started crying. But she didn’t answer and I was like, ‘Yes or no? Yes or no?’ Like, I’m looking at her going, ‘Yes or no?’ And she’s like ‘Yeh’ so I said ‘I think she said yes!’”
