Jennifer Lopez’s Dating History Is Sure To Make You Jealous

Not only is Jennifer Lopez the most successful Latina entertainer of all time, she’s enjoyed a long, varied dating history.  Here’s a look at all of her beaus, from “Ohhh yeah” to the “Wait, what?”

1. Alex Rodriguez

Jennifer’s latest beau is one half of the hot new celebrity couple of 2017.  Vanity Fair has already dubbed them “J-Rod”, because you always want the media to combine your names and make your relationship A Thing.  That’s work so well in Jennifer’s past!

2. Drake

This was last year’s question mark on the celebrity dating scene.  Was JLo on with Drake?  Or were they just “hanging out”, as she described the above photo.  Maybe someday we’ll know, or maybe the answer is lost forever to time.

3. Calvin Harris

Jennifer and this somewhat popular EDM guy and former boyfriend of Taylor Swift were rumored to be dating based an Instagram post or two.  If we were Calvin Harris, we’d sure want people to think we were dating JLo, too.  Nice work, buddy!

4. Maksim Chmerkovskiy

Jennifer Lopez often has a backup dancer as a…backup.  You’ll see as the list progresses.  Maksim, formerly of Dancing with the Stars, is the most recent.  There will be more.

5. Casper Smart

See?  Backup Dancer.  Jennifer dated Casper Smart on and off from around 2011 – 2014.  Intel says he cheated and got bounced, though the pair remains “friends.”

6. Bradley Cooper

While never confirmed, photographs prove the momentary love that blossomed between Jennifer and “American Hustle” star Bradley Cooper.  Alas, all we have are these photos.

7. Marc Anthony

Let’s marvel at the abject foreshadowing of the above photo.  The fact that Alex is in pinstripes and Marc in Mets blue, the smiles on their faces.  Are they thinking of what has transpired, or imagining what is to come?

7. Marc Anthony

Jennifer and Marc were married for seven years, and have wins: Max and Emme.  Married the same year Jennifer broke off her relationship with Ben Affleck, Marc tied the knot with Jennifer just days after his divorce from his ex was final.  Was this the ultimate rebound?

8. Ben Affleck

So, if you’re not old enough to remember “Bennifer” you probably should not be on the internet.  This relationship was the talk of 2002 – 2003 (notice the Hollywood Video in the above photo).  But, like all couples, Bennifer had problems.  Continue to the next slide to hear about them.

8. Ben Affleck

Bennifer had two very specific problems, and their names were Gigli and Jersey Girl.  It’s hard for a relationship to survive one disastrous flop much less two.  More problems include the Boston Red Sox and that goatee on Affleck.  Maybe breaking up was the better option.

9. Cris Judd

Jennifer’s marriage to backup dancer Cris Judd lasted 16 months in the early 2000’s, post-Puffy, pre-Affleck.  She seems to have a pattern of dating famous men and then mere backup dancers, but then, don’t we all have our patterns?

10. Sean Combs

Much of the JLo/Diddy romance has been lost to the mists of time.  But back in the day, this was a major one, prompting many a raised eyebrow from our moms, like in the above “green dress photo”.  The union ended in controversy (and tears) as we’ll see on the next slide….

….It all started with a jostle in a nightclub around New Year’s, 1999.  Drinks were spilled, then shots fired, then Jennifer and Diddy were arrested fleeing in a Lincoln Navigator with a gun in the trunk.  Jennifer was quickly absolved.  It took a little longer for Diddy, but they were never the same.

11. Tommy Mottola

Another unconfirmed oddball romance.  When Jennifer was just getting started, she was rumored to be dating Mariah Carey’s recent ex (and Michael Jackson foe) Tommy Mottola.  Jennifer went on to do great things while Tommy was never heard from again.

12. Ojani Noa

Jennifer’s first husband, whom she started dating when he was a waiter and she was a rising starlet and former Fly Girl.  The marriage was short, but the pain has been long.  She’s had to sue him twice to stop him from spilling the “secrets” of their marriage.  Oh, those first husbands…

13. Wesley Snipes

Whether or not that dated, Wesley was certainly Jennifer’s first onscreen love (in the 1995 film Money Train).  It seems like Wesley wants people to think he dated Jennifer.  And as longtime fans of Blade himself, we’re willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

14. David Cruz

Let’s give it up for the regular Joe who dates the superstar for a while.  They’re often pretty good guys, they were young too, and they’ve got stories forever.

Jennifer Lopez Talks New Skincare Line, Denies She’s Ever Had Botox: ‘I’m Not That Person’

Jennifer Lopez is as famous for her dewy, glowing skin as she is for her acting, singing, and dancing. And like a fine, wine the Bronx-born triple threat just keeps getting better with age. Let’s be honest: JLo looks as hot now as she did in the ’90s.

Finally, JLo has decided to let the public in on some of her secrets. That’s right, JLo has created a skincare line.

The line is called JLo Beauty and its dropping on January 1st.

As of now, the line includes eight products, a “Gel Cream Cleanser”, a “Multitaskting Serum”, a sheet mask, a “Wonder Cream”, a “Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Moisturizer”, an eye cream, a tinted moisturizer and an oral skin supplement. According to Lopez, she was intimately involved in the creation of all of them.

“The past three years, we’ve been working on the products, but we finally got them right,” she said in an interview with People. “I think I drove everybody a little bit crazy because I didn’t want to put my name on anything that didn’t work or wasn’t exactly what I wanted it to be.”

Ever the perfectionist, JLo claims that her skincare products went through one hundred rounds of product development before she was satisfied with the outcome.

Recently, JLo made headlines for claiming that she’s never gotten Botox. And if that’s true, maybe we can learn a thing or two about skincare from her.

In a recent interview with The New York Post, JLo shot down rumors that her youthful appearance is the result of a doctor’s intervention.

“I haven’t ever had Botox to this day. I’m not that person,” she said. “I don’t have anything against people doing that; it’s just not my thing. I’m more about a natural approach to skincare.”

And indeed, JLo Beauty does seem to rely on natural ingredients, the primary one being olive oil.

“The hero ingredient and the basis of the line was kind of a secret that my mom and aunt had from a very young age, which is olive oil. It’s nature’s secret ingredient which we don’t use enough of,” she told People. “They would use it on their skin and on their body, their face and their hair to get like a glow and to highly hydrate and moisturize.”

The slogan for JLo Beauty is “beauty has no expiration date.” That’s a mantra we can get behind.

JLo Beauty will be available on its website on January 1st in Sephora stores on January 14th. Pre-order all of the products here.

In Honor of J.Lo Being Nominated for the People’s Icon Award, Here Are Her Most Iconic Moments:

Entertainment

In Honor of J.Lo Being Nominated for the People’s Icon Award, Here Are Her Most Iconic Moments:

Put your drinks up! J.Lo has broken barriers yet again! Jennifer Lopez will receive the People’s Icon Award at the 2020 People’s Choice Awards. “Jennifer Lopez has an unmatched global appeal and for more than two decades, has given us some of the most iconic, unforgettable performances of all time,” Jen Neal, General Manager of E! News, Live Events & Lifestyle Digital, said in a statement. And we could not agree more, not only has J.Lo given us so many iconic moments in the fashion, film, and music industry, she has opened the door for more representation of the LatinX community in the entertainment industry.

 To celebrate, we compiled a list of Jennifer Lopez’s most iconic moments. 

1. Selena (1997)

There’s no doubt that the role of Selena became a defining moment of J.Lo’s career. The movie solidified Lopez’s rise to fame and saw her become the first Latina in the United States to earn $1 million for a starring role in a feature film. All while representing one of the most impactful and loved Latina artists. J.Lo’s performance as Selena Quintanilla-Pérez, the “Queen of Tejano music” will forever be remembered. 

2. Green Versace Dress (2000)

 Twenty years have passed since J.Lo appeared at the 42nd Annual Grammy Awards in 2000 wearing the infamous green Versace dress but to this day it remains one of the most talked about runway moments of all time. Fun fact: Google Images was invented because of the high demand of users wanting to see a picture of Lopez in the dress. Of course, the dress has proven to be more than just a blip in fashion history. In 2019, J.Lo walked in the Versace show wearing a redesigned version of the dress to celebrate the 20th anniversary of it. There’s only one word to describe this: Timeless. 

3. The Wedding Planner (2001)

Columbia Pictures

Who doesn’t love rom coms? Especially when Jennifer Lopez and Matthew McConaughey play the love interests. Lopez’s dance moves once again prove her talent as a dancer in the tango scene. To date, The Wedding Planner remains a fan favorite among J.Lo’s supporters.

4. “Jenny From the Block” 

In 2002, Jennifer Lopez released “Jenny From the Block,” one of her most popular singles, which at one point reached number three on the U.S. BillBoard Hot 100. The song is about how international fame and wealth could not change the girl from the Bronx. The song also ultimately inspired one of J.Lo’s lovingly crafted nicknames.

5. “On the Floor”  music video 

As of today, the 2011 music video featuring Pitbull, a.k.a Mr. Worldwide has 1.6 billion views on YouTube. “On the Floor” is the most viewed of J.Lo’s music videos. It is an extravagant and lavish production. The music video shows Lopez as the queen of the club, but also as the talented dancer that she is.

6. J.Lo’s appearance on James Corden Carpool Karaoke in 2016

The highlight of her appearance is when Corden grabbed her phone to text one of her famous contacts which included Cristiano Ronaldo, Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson, and Demi Lovato. Corden decided to text Leonardo DiCaprio, asking for suggestions to “cut loose,” he signed the text “J.Lo (you know, from the block).” They got a response back a few minutes later that read: “Tonight boo, boo? Club-wise?” This is for sure was a hilarious and priceless moment. Who has so many famous A-listers in their contacts? The one and only Jenny from the Block. 

7. Met Gala (2018)

The 2018 Met Gala had some of the most glamorous looks for its “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” theme. J.Lo totally rocked the theme with a Balmain gown full of gems and a feathered train, this look earned the 7th spot for some of Jennifer Lopez’s most iconic moments.

8. Hustlers (2019)

Youtube/STX Films

J.Lo’s role as Ramona, a leader of a group of women who scam and drug rich men, was a career-best performance, but it did not receive the recognition it deserved. After the Academy Awards released the 2020 nominees, many noticed that Lopez had been snubbed for a Best Supporting Actress nomination. J.Lo’s solo pole dancing scene in Hustlers shows how much dedication and passion she puts into her roles. She took some of her training and skills for the Hustlers movie into her 2020 Super Bowl halftime show. 

9. Super Bowl Half-time (2020)

The Super Bowl is one of the most extravagant live shows and Jennifer Lopez lived up to the moment. Her performance alongside Shakira is one of the best Super Bowl halftime shows of all time. She proudly wore the Puerto Rican flag as she sang alongside her daughter, Emme Maribel Muñiz. J.Lo’s performance was a fun and uplifting celebration of Latinx heritage as she sang alongside Colombian artist, J. Balvin. Also, let’s not forget the #JLoTikTokChallenge that went viral all over TikTok.

10. TikTok with A-Rod

On March 8, 2020, J.Lo posted a soon to be viral TikTok on her page. She did the “Flip the Switch” challenge with her fiancé, Alex Rodriguez, a.k.a. A-Rod. J.Lo was wearing a white body-con dress and hoops and switched clothes with A-Rod, who was wearing a blazer and button up shirt with sunglasses. The TikTok has 10.8 million likes and 165.3 million views. #couplegoals.
