I don’t know, Gorgeouses.
I used to love Jennifer Lopez. She was my favourite Fly Girl from way back in the day when I was a hip-hop dancer (for realz!) and she was on In Living Color. I even loved her first album, and maybe even her second. And I even once actually bought *COUGH* her perfume *COUGH.* And I watched American Idol last season, really, to gaze at her gorjness and to get great makeup ideas, of course.
But I haven’t been watching Idol this season. In all seriousness, and at the risk of sounding like Dr. Laura, she’s 42 years old, and she’s running around with her 25-year-old backup dancer, Casper Smart, creating a very sexy music video with him, AND she’s got two very young children AND her divorce proceedings from the kids’ father, Marc Anthony, only just began. (She’s photo’d, left, exiting the gas station with her son, adorable 4-year-old Max Muñiz.)
To top it all off, the kids’ father, Marc Anthony is allegedly furious about all this, and heartbroken that JLo chose Casper over him — which can’t make things any easier on Max and his twin sister Emme, either. Of course, he doesn’t want Casper around his kids. And I can’t say I blame him. This is a relatively new relationship, and they’re barely divorced yet. In the meantime, as the Vancouver Sun reports, Marc’s seeking joint custody and asking the courts to withhold spousal support if JLo asks for it.
Anyway what do you think of all this. To keep it a little less judgy (after all, we never do know the whole story), here’s my question for you: Should I still love Jennifer Lopez? The dance scene with her and Casper in the new video is pretty awesome…. *Cough*
