Jennifer Lopez lost 10 lbs by going vegan

Jennifer Lopez looks great for 44 – I’ve said it before and it warrants saying again. While we know celebs have access to chefs and trainers and other stuff us layman could never afford, good genes also help… and apparently going vegan, as well. I call bullshit on that, but let’s go with it.

Jen decided to adopt a strict vegan diet and forced her family, friends and 6-year-old twins to do it with her. She also has hardcore 6-hour dance workouts every day, as well, which I would imagine helps. Starving yourself and overexercising will certainly lead you to lose 10 lbs, but please, by all means, tell us all about it, girl.

From US Weekly:

‘You got to work out, you got to watch what you eat. It’s a job – you’ve got to buckle down,’ the pop diva told the July 7 edition of Us Weekly.

‘I feel great mentally and physically!’

For the past five weeks, the two-time Grammy nominee whittled her waist from a size 4 to 2 after cutting out dairy, meat, and gluten.

Even after having two children, Jennifer looks visibly slimmer than she did in 2004 or even 20 years ago in 1994. Back in April, the I Luh Ya Papi singer hired exercise physiologist Marco Borges, whose clients include Beyoncé, Jay Z, Gwen Stefani, Shakira, and Pharrell Williams. When JLo’s not dining on quinoa enchiladas, black-bean burgers, and zucchini ‘pasta’ – she indulges in Borges’ 22 Days cherry chocolate bliss bar.

For support, the American Idol judge ‘got her family’ to go vegan with her, including her six-year-old twins Emme and Max.

‘Sometimes my son will be like “I want American cheese. I don’t like this vegan cheese!”‘ Lopez told Extra on June 6, adding she does allows them to munch on chips.

I mean, beyond the completely misguided idea that meat and dairy are bad for you, I’m not here to tell anyone how to live their lives. You wanna go vegan? Knock yourself out. Whatever diet – and I mean that in the “how you eat on a daily basis” sense rather than a “fad thing you follow for now” sense – you choose to adopt is fine by me, but to me, it just seems like she’s living on foliage and getting far fewer calories than she probably needs, especially considering her hardcore workouts, and yet attributing this weight loss to being vegan. Newsflash: I know a lot of vegans who are REALLY unhealthy, just as much as I do those who follow omnivorous diets.

That being said, zucchini noodles are amazing – I don’t even eat pasta anymore because they’re so good. However, you will have to pry cheese out of my cold, dead hands. More cheese for me, JLo!

Yeah, Jennifer Lopez and Maksim Chmerkovskiy are doing it

Jennifer Lopez‘s camp shot down rumours last week that after dumping Casper Smart‘s ass like a bad habit, she’d already starting dating Dancing with the Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy. However, that denial thing isn’t going very well since they were seen (again) on a date this weekend, which was apparently “very flirty”.

From US Weekly:

The Dancing With the Stars pro, 34, attended Lopez’s show at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut on Saturday, June 21, after which he and the “First Love” singer, 44, danced the night away at Shrine Nightclub.

An onlooker tells Us Weekly that the two stayed close for most of the night, talking and dancing together in a big group. “Maks was whispering into her ear and hugging her,” the eyewitness says. “They looked very flirty with each other…She had a huge smile on her face and looked like she was having a great time.”

The source notes that Chmerkovskiy, who won season 18 of DWTS with partner Meryl Davis last month, remained by the recently single star’s side even when he wasn’t dancing. Lopez, meanwhile, was super into the music and grooving to songs including Jay Z’s “99 Problems,” Rihanna’s “Birthday Cake,” and French Montana’s “Pop That.”

At one point toward the end of the night, the two held hands and talked before sharing a long hug and saying goodbye. Chmerkovskiy then left with a male friend, while Lopez stayed behind with the rest of the group.

LOL. It cracks me up that it’s actually someone’s job to sit around watching celebrities’ every move to report back to some shitty tabloid magazine like this. Can’t you just picture some entry level college grad scribbling down what songs were playing in this club in their little notebook? Egads.

Then again, it could just be some intern sitting at a desk, writing up whatever comes into his/her head. Who can say? For now, I guess we’ll just have to believe that love is in the air for these two.

Jennifer Lopez wants to be friends with Mariah Carey

You might think that Jennifer Lopez and Mariah Carey wouldn’t get along. They’re both alleged divas and they’re both female artists, which of course the press would love us to believe makes them mortal enemies. They’ve been rumoured to have a feud going for years, but uh… unsurprisingly, that’s not so! In fact, Jennifer is a big fan of Mariah’s and wishes they could be friends, they’ve just never had the opportunity to meet.

From Watch What Happens Live:

“I don’t have a feud against her — at all…we have never met. We don’t know each other…but I don’t know, I would love to meet her and I would love to be friends with her. I think she’s incredibly talented and I’ve always been a fan of hers. ‘My All’ is one of my favorite songs of all time.”

You can watch Jen’s interview below. What do you think – is she being genuine? Would Mariah shut her down? I can’t decide out of the two of them who I’d like to be friends with more. Probably Mariah, cause you know she’s just THAT ridiculous that you’d just laugh at her the entire time.
