Want to spend New Year’s Eve with Jennifer Lopez?

If your answer is “Hell yes!”, then today is your lucky day. I mean, you won’t actually get to spend New Year’s Eve with Jennifer Lopez in any real, meaningful way, but you can at least watch her televised concert special, Dance Again, which will air on HBO on the night of December 31st. Talk about exciting!

The special follows Jennifer on tour, of course, and shows plenty of live concert footage, but it also promises to cover the “dizzying heights and the lo’s” (nevermind the fact that it’s completely incorrect grammar – get it? Lo’s?) of her behind-the-scenes life. Sounds… boring. But okay!

Here’s the trailer for Dance Again, just for you:

Jennifer Lopez covers ‘Harper’s Bazaar’ Russia

Hilariously, “Jennifer Lopez is 45″ was trending on Twitter the other day. This is Big News, obviously, since JLo looks all of about 30 and is still killin’ it. Case in point, her new cover of Harper’s Bazaar Russia, where she brings the serious Cell vibes and looks fantastic. She also looks… a bit whitewashed on the cover, unfortunately. What’s going on here, Russia?

Anyhoo, enjoy the rest of the photos…

Ben Affleck was Jennifer Lopez’s first real heartbreak

Jennifer Lopez was married twice before she got engaged to Ben Affleck back in the early 2000s, but she still counts him as her first real heartbreak. They broke up in 2004 and JLo moved on quickly, but that doesn’t mean she wasn’t completely destroyed by the end of their relationship.

From US Weekly:

In a new interview with Maria Shriver, set to air on the Today show on Nov. 3 and 4, the “Booty” singer shared just how devastated she was to part ways with the Gone Girl actor.

The revelation came during a discussion about Lopez’s new memoir, True Love, when Shriver noted how quick the star was to move on with another man after her broken engagement to Affleck. (Bennifer broke up in January 2004; by June of that year, the American Idol host was married to third husband Marc Anthony, with whom she later had twins Max and Emme, 6.)

“Right, you’re absolutely right,” Lopez, 45, told Shriver. “It was probably my first big heartbreak, and to have one of my best friends who I’d known for years, who I actually love and did have chemistry with, come into my life and say, ‘I’m here’…What you need to know is, nobody can save you or heal you,” she continued. “Only you can do that for you.”

The “First Love” singer has gotten better about that over time, but old habits die hard. “It’s still a work in progress for me. It’s how you feel as a child, you know, being a middle child and kind of being invisible sometimes, or, you know, trying to get the attention,” she explained.

“So what did I do? I overachieved,” she continued. “I was the one who ran track and I won medals every weekend. Or I was the one who would go on the show and steal the show. And that would give me confidence. But there was a part of me that just wanted love, that felt like she wasn’t worthy of the love.”

I love when celebs get all emo and self-reflective. That’s something most people work out on their own, in a journal or with a therapist, but celebs need the public validation of their emotions (meta in this instance, I know), so it’s extra ironic. I do like Jennifer Lopez, though, and I’m glad she got away from Marc Anthony. He always really creeped me out.

I wonder why she’s getting crazy over Ben Affleck again, though. Could it be that scene in Gone Girl that’s making her nostalgic? Heh.

Jennifer Lopez and Leah Remini got hit by drunk driver

Hopefully that headline wasn’t too misleading – I just didn’t want to use the words “rear-ended” in the same headline as Jennifer Lopez and Leah Remini‘s names. Indeed, the pair were out driving in NY (I think?) when the BFFs were hit by a drunk driver. Luckily, they were okay and no one was hurt.

From JLo’s Instagram:

Sitting at a light, Riding high right before some drunk fool rear ended us in my new whip!!! Thank god everyone ok!!! #GRATEFUL #THANKYOUGOD #DontdrinkandDrive!!!! #cursedthatfoolout #theBronxcameout #dontmesswithmycocnuts #mamabear #leahstayedcalm #thatwasweird

Good that they’re okay. Also, what the hell is wrong with drunk people getting behind the wheel? Ugh, I’ll never understand it. This all seems a bit vague, as well – were the police not called? Did the driver not get arrested? “Cursing out” someone who could kill someone on the road isn’t much of a reaction…

Jennifer Lopez featuring Iggy Azalea – ‘Booty’ (Make it stop!)

jennifer lopez iggy azalea booty

Here it is, ladies and gents – the video you certainly weren’t waiting for and probably had no idea existed. It’s Jennifer Lopez‘s new video for her song ‘Booty’, featuring Iggy Azalea. Everything about this is horrendous: the fact that a 44-year-old mother of two small children still feels the need to compete with 2o-something pop stars by singing about her ass, the fact that she felt the need to use Iggy Azalea (which… don’t get me started there), the fact that the song would be shit no matter who sung it… you get my drift.

Also, before anyone gets all up in arms, I’m not saying 44-year-old women/mothers can’t be sexy, get their ass out, whatever they want. I’m saying this is clearly a DIRECT result of her need to compete with the younger girls (who are hot messes in their own right), which I think is sad. She’s earned her fame and her name and doesn’t need to resort to this shit. Because it is shit.

But here, please judge for yourself:

I love me some J.Lo, but she needs to get a grip with this shit. We get it: you’ve got a nice ass, it’s been a major part of your career, you enjoy it and men and women looking at it do, too. But… girl, no. Seriously, full props for having an INCREDIBLE body for any age, but sit down.

Also, please get Iggy’s NON-ass out of here stat. She looks SO awkward and out of her element… most likely because she is.

Jennifer Lopez needs to be single right now

A while back, Jennifer Lopez kicked her baby boyfriend, Casper Smart, to the curb, and she hasn’t hooked up with anyone else since. Sure, she’s been linked to Dancing with the Stars hunk (lol) Maksim Chmerkovskiy, but apparently that was all just gossip, because she’s loving being single.

From The Meredith Viera Show (via US Weekly):

“I’m just being on my own. I feel like I need that right now,” the mom of two said when asked about her relationship status. “I’ve been in relationships kind of back-to-back my whole life and I just needed time.”

“I need time to just chill and just know me and enjoy my kids and actually make time for other friends instead of just the relationship thing,” the “I Luh Ya Papi” singer, who split from Casper Smart after two and half years together this past June, told the talk show host.

Lopez, who recently released her eighth album A.K.A, added, “All of a sudden, all the relationships in your life and everything starts working when you take care of yourself.”

Okay, first of all, when did Meredith Viera get a show and why? Second of all, live your life, girl. It’s good to be single for a while – there’s seriously nothing worse than a woman (or man, obviously) who doesn’t know how to be alone and completely has a meltdown when she’s not in a relationship. Companionship is wonderful and fantastic, but you should not fall apart when you don’t have it. Get it together.

Jennifer Lopez turns up the heat in Miami in weird outfit

I suppose Jennifer Lopez knows what’s trendy far better than I do, but I’m still not quite sure about the bodysuit/jacket combo she wore in Miami on Saturday for her concert at the iHeartRadio Ultimate Pool Party. She performed a full 40-minute set in this brightly coloured metallic get-up, and it’s weird as hell, but somehow she manages to pull it off – presumably because she’s JLo and she can get away with wearing pretty much anything.

Here’s her full set, for those who are interested in seeing ‘Booty’ performed live. Don’t lie, you know you want to.
