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!’”

Mexican Theater Chain Opening Two Kid-Friendly Theaters In The U.S.

With home entertainment becoming more high tech and accessible every year, movie theaters are being forced to come up with inventive ways to attract customers. Some theaters allow patrons to enjoy adult beverages and food during the movie, while others have figured out how to make the overall experience more immersive.

In an attempt to lure families to their theaters, Mexico-based movie theater chain Cinepolis has done the unthinkable: turning the theater into a giant playscape for children.

With Cinepolis Junior, children can chill and watch a movie, or they can get buck on the kid-friendly playscape.

In an interview with Los Angeles Times, Cinepolis representative Adrian Mijares Elizondo said, “It’s really intended to make kids feel welcome and comfortable. The whole idea is to make it easier for parents to take their kids to the movies and let the kids have more fun.” Children will be allowed to work out their zoomies before the movie begins, and after it ends, they will be allowed to play again for a limited time.

For parents looking to get some relaxation at the theater, beanbag seats are definitely the way to go.

There are even some laid back lounge chairs for kids to enjoy.

So far the Mexico based Cinepolis has tested out their Junior theaters in foreign markets, like Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Spain, but now two are now being introduced in the Southern California area. Next week, parents can check out the Cinepolis Junior experience at Pico Rivera, in the Los Angeles area, and the Vista just north of San Diego.

The Los Angeles Times points out that tickets will likely cost more than your normal viewing experience, which is why Cinepolis is testing the waters with only two locations for now. It costs Cinepolis roughly $500,000 to turn a single theater into a kid friendly environment.
