J.Lo And A-Rod Opened Up About Their Relationship In Vanity Fair

When it comes to J.Lo and A.Rod as a couple, well what is there to say? They’re both incredibly rich and gorgeous. We’ve seen them both display both the good and bad of their various relationships in the past, so what else is there to know? Lots, apparently.

Reading about “J-Rod” in the December issue of Vanity Fair has me feeling all sorts of emotions, and not the ones I was expecting. Here are some of the most surprising details.

They met more than a decade ago, so what took so long for J.Lo and A.Rod to get together?

The way Lopez and Rodriguez discuss meeting earlier this year, which led to their relationship, you’d think it was the first time they ever met. They actually met 12 years ago, but it took them a while to find each other when they were both single. They say if they had met sooner, the relationship wouldn’t have worked. “We had to grow and discover ourselves first,” Lopez said.

Marc Anthony was there the first time they met.

So, 12 years ago, Marc Anthony was throwing out the first pitch at a New York Mets game. There was a moment in which Lopez and Rodriguez shook hands and “locked eyes.” In the article, Lopez asks Rodriguez if she remembers when they first met: “You don’t have to say you remember if you don’t.” He responds, “Shea Stadium, during a subway series.”

During their first date, Rodriguez wasn’t sure if Lopez was single.

The couple talked about their first time going out: a dinner date at the Bel Air hotel. During their conversation, Lopez revealed she was single (as if being on the date didn’t give it away).

“So I’m sitting there and he’s walking back, and I get a text,” Lopez said. (Rodriguez texted her while he walked away to compose himself upon learning she was single). The text said: “You look sexy AF.”

Soon after this OMG moment, an alarm went off.

“And then [the date] took a turn,” Lopez said. “The fire alarm went off, and we had to evacuate. No, really. The fire alarm went off!”

They have way more in common than just being rich and Latino.

Fun night w my baby… #World Series Houston 2017!

We are very much twins,” Rodriguez says. “We’re both Leos; we’re both from New York; we’re both Latino and about 20 other things.” They were both in their 20s when their career took off and also had public downfalls in their work and in their relationships.

Rodriguez always speaks in baseball jargon.

During the article, I had to re-read a couple of sentences, thinking the conversation had shifted to baseball, but nope. Rodriguez articulates everything in baseball terms. For example: “The work I did, that was one of the most painful and most rewarding experiences of my life, and it continues to this day. I tell myself, ‘I’m rounding first base and going to second base. It’s a process.'” When Rodriguez describes his first date with Lopez, he says: “She told me around the third or fourth inning that she was single.”

You forget they’re a celebrity couple when they talk about their love (but not when you see the photos in Vanity Fair).

I’m going to confess here, it’s hard for me to see them as anything other than a celebrity power couple because they have bigger-than-life personas. But reading Lopez talk about the moment she approached him for the first time is so cute!

Lopez said she wasn’t intending to say hello to Rodriguez, but something compelled her to do it. She says she was dressed as her “Shades of Blue” character, Harlee Santos.

I almost yelled out ‘Alex,’ but I am the shyest person when it comes to things like that,” Lopez said. “But I walk over and tap him on the shoulder and say ‘Hey.'”

And that was it.

Apparently, they’re both fans of the movie “Blood In Blood Out.”

Classic??#bloodinbloodout

When they first began dating, Lopez and Rodriguez would use the hashtag #bloodinbloodout in text messages to each other.

Rodriguez will be a regular on “Shark Tank.”

@arod means business. #SharkTank

Along with being the first Latino shark on “Shark Tank,” Rodriguez will also star in a reality show on CNBC where he mentors retired athletes who are struggling financially.

Lopez and Rodriguez aren’t afraid to show vulnerability.

Lopez often says she loves being in relationships out of fear of being alone. She talks about taking a real “time out,” after her relationship with Casper, to be single and find herself again.

Rodriguez also talked about getting busted for using performance-enhancing drugs in 2014. “I remember thinking one night . . . Don’t know if I told you this, babe [he says to Lopez] . . . In the middle of this craziness, I remember it’s three A.M., four A.M., and like many nights, I couldn’t sleep. I’m not a crier, but I’m bawling. . . . My pillows are now soaking wet, and it’s the middle of the night, and I’m thinking I’m the only fucking asshole that gets pocket aces and figures out a way to lose the hand. I was so angry at myself, so pissed off, that it was hard to breathe.”

This is what an adult relationship looks like.

We have seen these two in and out of relationships, and while I am not one to judge, it truly feels that they are both seeking that one person that “gets” them.

“I understand him in a way that I don’t think anyone else could, and he understands me in a way that no one else could ever,” Lopez says. “In his 20s, he came into big success with the biggest baseball contract [at the time]. I had a No. 1 movie and a No. 1 album and made history. We both had ups and downs and challenges in our 30s, and by our 40s we’d both been through so much. And more importantly than anything, we had both done a lot of work on ourselves.”

Twitter Users Lost Their Cool When Lin-Manuel Miranda Made This Woman His Profile Picture

@bfaythe / Twitter

Halloween is always a special and exciting time, if you are one of those that likes to dress up. It’s even more epic when you pick out a costume that everyone will recognize. However, one lucky woman had arguably the greatest Halloween of all time thanks to some phenomenal Twitter love from the one and only Lin-Manuel Miranda. Here’s how the creator of “Hamilton” made one fan’s day when all she was doing was trying to get extra credit.

Twitter user @bfaythe was trying to score some extra credit on Halloween with her costume.

Clearly if you are going to dress up as a playwright in 2017, you have to do Lin-Manuel Miranda. It just makes sense since he is the most recognizable playwright at the moment.

And her mission for extra credit ended in some serious love from the real Miranda.

? ? ?

He even made her photo his profile picture because why not?

According to @bfaythe’s own Twitter account, she was screaming for about 24 hours and couldn’t concentrate for the rest of the day. Tbh, you wouldn’t be able to either if it was you. Don’t lie.

All kids of people started sharing their own Miranda costumes from Halloweens past.

#Dying at that “I ❤️ PBS” button.

Everyone lost it when they noticed how strong @bfaythe’s sweater game was.

Like…

Everyone.

In case you aren’t aware, when Miranda’s play “Hamilton” was blowing up, there was an ongoing joke about his gray sweater. He even tweeted about his special gray sweater and made a joke about it. People lost it when they saw him for the first time without his gray sweater in GQ, which was absolutely beautiful.

Don’t worry. Her attention to detail elsewhere didn’t go unnoticed.

Pay attention kids. This is how you get retweeted by your fave celebs.

But, the greatest lesson of this tweet is that we all learned that Miranda would still be beautiful as a woman.

Whenever we start offering Noble Peace Prizes for the way people treat Twitter followers, Miranda needs to be the first person to win that award. ?
