It’s been 19 years since Jennifer Lopez wore that iconic Versace dress to the 2000 Grammy Awards. You know, the dress that made jaws drop as low as the neckline. At the Versace show during Milan Fashion Week on Friday (Sep 20), Jenny From The Block showed that she’s still got the bod.

Strutting the catwalk in an updated version of the dress, the Hustlers actress, who turned 50 in July, showed even more skin than the original dress. Her walk, which oozed confidence, was done solo before she returned to the stage with designer Donatella Versace.
Vogue editrix Anna Wintour was reported to be so “enthusiastic”, she had “an uncharacteristic grin on her face” as she joined the enthralled crowd in giving the singer a standing ovation, reported the New York Post’s Page Six.
Fans of the On The Floor singer, including actress Katharine McPhee, quickly took to Twitter to post their approval. Others called JLo’s look the “8th wonder of the modern world”.
Remember, do what you love for as long as you can. Age is just a number, Jen is the best example. @JLo , you deserve everything, you are the most wonderful woman in the world.💚🙌🏼 @Versacepic.twitter.com/l9jSxd5iem
Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez staged a lavish engagement party in Los Angeles on Friday night.
The 50-year-old singer and Alex, 44, toasted their impending wedding at the home of singer Carole Bayer Sager in Bel Air, where they were joined by friends and family.
An insider told E! News: “It was a dimly lit party with candles everywhere, white flowers and purple lighting. It was held both indoors and outdoors.”
Jennifer – who has 11-year-old twins Maximilian and Emme with ex-husband Marc Anthony – and Alex, who has children Natasha, 14, and Ella, 11, were joined at the bash by their loved ones.
The loved-up duo were also joined by some of their celebrity pals, including actress Leah Remini and producer Benny Medina.
The source added: “It was a chance for all of their friends in LA to celebrate their engagement.”
The engagement party was staged shortly after Jennifer was confirmed as one of the star attractions for the Super Bowl half-time show in 2020.
The chart-topping pop star will take to the stage alongside Shakira next February in Miami, and Alex subsequently revealed how “proud” he is of his wife-to-be.
Following the announcement, the retired baseball star posted on his Instagram and Twitter pages: “So proud and SO EXCITED! Bringing it home! Going to set the #305 on [fire emoji] (sic)”
Looking forward to the occasion, Jennifer explained: “There’s nobody like her so I know that the two of us together are going to bring that special brand of what we do and there will be people who haven’t even seen us perform who get to see something special that night. It’s going to be an exciting show.
“That’s what you can expect. When you think about Shak and you think about what I do, the combination of that, I think of an explosion of fun and energy!”
Famous musician Jennifer Lopez has confirmed her engagement to baseball icon Alex Rodriguez.
JLo and Alex took the bold step after two years of dating. The two celebs, who have always documented their private lives and relationship achievements on social media, never lacked admiration and support from their numerous fans and well-wishers.
On Saturday night, JLo and Alex shared news of their “binding agreement” on Instagram.
“She said yes,” Alex captioned his post in the picture-sharing website, also flaunting an image of him holding his fiancée’s hand. The sparkling diamond-crusted ring stayed conspicuous.
On 4 February, Alex and JLo celebrated their 2-year anniversary. At that time, A-Rod (as he is popularly known during his days as a Seattle Mariner, New York Yankee and Texas Ranger) shared an emotional message:
“Only 730 days, which have flown by, but it feels like we have been together forever. We are meant to be, and how much you mean to me cannot be put into words.”
Coincidentally, Alex’s engagement to JLo comes barely 24 hours after the baseball star shared a heartfelt message for former flames—believed to have gained inspiration from years of experience. His Instagram Story about soulmates, however, was more explanatory than apologetic in nature.
“A soulmate isn’t someone who completes you,” the message read.
“No, a soulmate is someone who inspires you to complete yourself. A soulmate is someone who loves you with so much conviction, and so much heart, that it is nearly impossible to doubt just how capable you are of becoming exactly who you have always wanted to be,” he added.
According to PEOPLE, Alex met Lopez at Shea Stadium in Queens. She had stopped to shake the baseball player’s hand before the first pitch. He retired with the Yankees in 2016 and has since focused on Jenny from the Block.
At 49, Jennifer Lopez appears ageless with her fitness level, well-toned skin, body curves and jaw-dropping abs, but there’s only one secret to achieving these incredible beauty standards–consistency.
Gunner Peterson, a personal trainer to the Second Act star who has managed her health and beauty routines for years, told Hollywood Lifethat J-Lo isn’t interested in dieting or taking magic pills. ‘These don’t sound terribly sexy,’ he said.
‘She (J-Lo) is just conscious of her health and makes it a priority–that’s why she keeps looking like a 20-year-old,’Peterson added. He also works with Kim Kardashian, Sofia Vergara, Sylvester Stallone, and many other celebrities.
In an effort to share some useful beauty secrets from experience gathered over the years, Jennifer Lopez is about to launch her own skincare line.
Speaking to Refinery 24 on the business idea, J-Lo said the range of beauty products will, most likely, take a long time before hitting global markets but assured fans that they’re sure to enjoy a glowing skin just like hers.
‘I’m not in a hurry to put just anything out,’ the NY City-born actress said.
She continued, ‘I’ve been working on this entrepreneurial idea for a long time; I’m glad to announce that the skincare line is going to be something perfect–something that works for everyone…You can count on me for maximum satisfaction anytime my name is on something.’

J-Lo’s preventative range of beauty products will launch in 2019. The skincare line promises to stave off signs of ageing and the Anaconda star says the beauty secrets will be her own little way of appreciating fans.
‘You should expect a touch of all the secrets I’ve learned over the years,’she noted, ‘…It’d contain everything that has kept me radiating as the years pass bye. It has nothing to do with needles.’
Although Peterson and J-Lo have previously attributed her ageless beauty to a healthy lifestyle and drinking lots of water, the Boy Next Door actress said: ‘One thing that destroys your health, especially as you get older, is smoking and living on caffeine.
‘Additionally, I always avoid the sun and must use my sunscreen whenever I have to stay outdoors in the rays…My commitment to UV protection is another reason I’ve got a youthful skin complexion.’

Despite being a Fox Sports commentator, the former MLB star nicknamed A-Rod says he finds it funny that people mistake him to be the singer’s bodyguard or driver.

Speaking with Jimmy Fallon of The Tonight Show, J Lo’s 41-year-old boyfriend revealed that the embarrassment from paparazzi has been his most “humbling life experience.”
The Dominican-American is considered by fans and baseball analysts as one of the greatest players to have graced the sport.
A-Rod holds a career record of 25 Grand Slams. He is also a 14-time All-Star.
Few of his career highlights include: three American League (AL) Most Valuable Player (MVP) Awards, two Gold Glove Awards, and ten Silver Slugger Awards.
Despite his achievements and the popularity he earned as a retired player, A-Rod says it’s impossible to handle J-Lo’s overwhelming popularity.

“This is one of the most humbling experiences of my life,” said the MLB Batting Champion.
“When I was on the Yankees and we won the world championships and we wore the pinstripes, you think you’re pretty cool, but then, you hang out with Jennifer and they confuse me with the security guard all the time.
He continued: “I promise you we were at the Met Ball and the paparazzi were screaming at me, not even in English, ‘Get the hell out of the way! Get out of the way! We want to take a picture!'”

Rodriguez doesn’t play for the Yankees anymore, but he holds an advisory capacity position in the organization.
“I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of the organization,” he added.
“I’m so lucky to still be a part of the Yankees, and be advising our general partner Hal Steinbrenner and mentoring our young players. We have a phenomenal young team.”
Despite reports that ‘Jenny from the block’ has found her true calling, the recent media spat shows some broken hearts never mend.
Was it the usual lost-love war? Maybe not, because the lovebirds cited busy work schedules as their reason for going separate ways earlier this year, but now it seems they lied.
E! News reported that Lopez was caught off guards during one of her “All I Have” residency shows in Las Vegas. She reportedly stopped mid-performance and took a shade at former boyfriend Drake.
Reports confirm the Canadian rapper’s “Hotline Bling” was playing when J-Lo heard it, paused for a moment and sent the internet into wild frenzy with her comments, “Huh, bootycall.”
It was loud enough for the audience to have heard her.

The mother-of-two reportedly made that comment with her hand on her hip. Then she flipped her hair and gave a nod for another song. Good riddance to bad rubbish, she must have muttered.
Although her words could be a kind of nerve-calming move during an energy-sapping performance, the words bring to mind a list of celebs who are regarded as bad losers like Rusell Brand, who once dissed his ex-wife Katy Perry, saying: “I’d be having sex [with Kat] thinking, ‘think of anyone, anyone else.'”
He made the comment before a performance for his Messiah Complex tour at the Soho Theater on July 31, 2013.

Booty call refers to a last-minute or previously unplanned request to meet up with someone with the intention of having sex.
Some common characteristics of a booty call: the caller is intoxicated, the call occurs at night (often after bars have stopped serving alcohol,) the callee is an acquaintance or an ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend, and the sex involves no or little emotion.
The “call” in “booty call” implies a telephone call, but other methods of requesting a get-together (e.g. phone text messaging) are also valid.
A March report from PEOPLE.com quoted an insider close to Drake and J-Lo as saying that what they shared was never meant to last forever.
Critics said she was here on earth hustling for long 17 years before the rapper was born. Others say he [Drake] should have known she wanted him to warn her bed while she searched for a soulmate.
“It was never very serious,” said the tipster. “They like one another and had fun together.
“It was and is fun when they see each other. They love hanging out and making music together. [Jennifer] has great respect for him and his talent and he does for her as well.”
Drake and Jennifer Lopez have been a perfect match for each other since their rumored romance was confirmed last December.
However, it seems the ladies’ man just can’t be tamed, sort of.
A dicey question for the “Views” rapper is, “J. Lo or Rosee Divine?” Any way, he doesn’t care about what people think.
Drake, 30, and Lopez, 47, confirmed their relationship in some lovey dovey Instagram pictures.
The lovebirds have also gone out together on a few occasions with the mother-of-two wearing her new boyfriend’s gold necklace. Age ain’t nothing but numbers, as one might say.
Rumors are rife that the purported true affection was a stunt for their upcoming music. If this isn’t love, then what is it?
Drake was caught having dinner with the famous porn star, Divine, in Amsterdam last Monday. They looked very excited in each other’s company while the fun lasted in a Japanese restaurant, The Daily Mail confirmed.
Rosee was mortified to be with a charming young man like Drake. She just couldn’t get her hands off him.
It’s kinda confusing to see Drake [real names Aubrey Drake Graham] get so close to another female admirer while Lopez is said to be “madly in love” with him.
“She’s head over heels for Drake,” a source told E! News last December when news of his split from Rihanna and subsequent hookup with Lopez went public.
” It’s a new relationship, but she really likes him. She’s really into him.”
At that time, the “I’m Real” singer told E! that they were doing music in the studio. She never wanted to go public with Drake but that’s how love goes.
Lopez and Rihanna were very good friends until the rapper left Riri for her.
“He just asked me to do a song with him and that’s what we’ve been doing. We’ll see if it’s on his next album,” she said.
Sources close to the singer-actress and fashion designer revealed she wanted to keep her love for Drizzy “easy, light and fun”.
A latest report from Hollywood Life claims Lopez knew about her man’s outing with the porn star.
“Drake wants everyone to kill that noise that he’s being nefarious behind J.Lo’s back,”a source reveals.
“He doesn’t see Rosee like that only met up with her to talk about some business. Drake FaceTimed JLo from the restaurant right in front of Rosee.”
The source continues: “Drake’s very open and upfront with J.Lo, plus, there were photographers at the dinner [capturing their every move]. The last thing he wants is to ruin that beautiful connection they share.”

J. Lo’s newest album was confirmed last October and the world is patiently waiting to lay hands on it. The release date is yet to be announced.
“I am so excited and really looking forward to this new musical journey and to celebrate my Latin roots with Marc Anthony and the Sony/Magnus family,” the 47-year-old told Billboard in an interview.
His ex-husband Marc Anthony will be the executive producer of her new album.
Jennifer Lopez has dated some young, wealthy and handsome men like Sean “Puff Diddy” Combs, Casper White, and now Drake. The famous musician has also wedded three “real men” who had everything she could ever ask for, but she insists her “love don’t cost a thing.”
The happiest man on earth at this moment should be Drake, who dumped 28-year-old Rihanna for Jennifer Lopez, 47.
J. Lo [full names Jennifer Lynn Lopez] released her second studio album titled J. Lo in 2001 but the single track “Love Don’t Cost A Thing” was released on 2 December, 2000.
The album attracted huge sales around the world, and was made popular by the lyrics from that single track which says: “…even if you’re broke…”
At the time she released “Love Don’t Cost A Thing,” Lopez was dating American rapper Puff Daddy whose lifestyle she described as “materialistic”.

The mother-of-two aroused speculations as to whether she was dissing her then boyfriend.
Surprisingly, the two lovebirds called it quits in their relationship shortly after that song was released. And critics hailed Lopez for the music track which many agreed to be a bold message and a sharp rebuke to all male rappers who objectify women for sex and materialism.

Later in July 2000, J.Lo revealed in an interview that Lawson [a songwriter] was the one who brought up ideas for “Love Don’t Cost A Thing.”
She said: “I wrote and recorded a track which eventually turned out to be ‘Love Don’t Cost a Thing’. I called Lawson up, and I played the track and sang the melody to him over the phone.
“We ended up collaborating on the song, with both of us writing parts of the melody and the lyric.
“I came up with the title, and he came up with the key line, ‘Even if you were broke,’ in the chorus.
“Three other writers, Georgette Franklin, Jeremy Munroe and Amil Harris, also contributed parts to the song.”
Through the years, it seems all men who journeyed through J. Lo’s life never understood what she wanted in a relationship – simply nothing.
As of 2014, she was worth $340 million.
The TV personality has experienced three failed marriages: Ojani Noa (1997-1998), Cris Judd (2001-2003), and Marc Anthony (2004-2014). She has also dated many young and got her heart broken a few times, but she never gives up.
J. Lo’s latest romance with Drake made headlines around the world, and they just don’t care what people say.
Earlier this week, some Instagram pictures confirmed her affair with the 30-year-old rapper. They’re the hottest celebrity couple in town at this moment, no doubts.
The Canadian rapper recently revealed to his friends, according to media reports, that he has been crushing on J.Lo for a very long time.
Drake seem to have the magic touch with all women who dare to cross his path, not only J. Lo. And both artists suspiciously lost their relationships at the same, but were fast to hook up within a very short period, a “coincidence” Rihanna won’t ever admit because J. Lo has been her close friend.
Was Drake caught cheating with J. Lo before splitting with Rihanna?
“Drake’s had a crush on Jen for ages and they’ve always been flirty. But this is the first time they’ve been single at the same time,” a tipster revealed toHeat magazine.
“I think Drake went to her show hoping they might hook up – and everyone’s saying it worked. She loves his swagger and he loves a powerful woman.”
A close friend to the newest celebrity couple said though Drake is 30 and Lopez is 47, the age gap means nothing to them.
In a recent Instagram picture, J. Lo was seen wearing Drake’s gold chain, a confirmation that her “love”, truly, “don’t cost a thing.” He doesn’t even have to buy her a new bling bling, and that’s a solid point from the superwoman. Love is sharing, isn’t it?
“They’ve known each other for ages, through the Kardashians, and there’s always been chemistry between them. He’s secure in himself, loves older women and doesn’t mind taking a back seat to a super-famous girlfriend,” said the insider.
Wish Rihanna read this handwriting on the wall. How could she not have known that? Any ways, not too late though for other young preys who will get the fact before he strikes again.
“Jen loves the attention and she seems very happy to be spending time with him,” a report from People claims.
“Drake is very charming. He treats Jen with lots of respect. She seems very smitten.”
Barely two days after Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez sealed their 2016 Latin Grammy Awards performance with a kiss, his wife of two years has filed for divorce, reports confirm.
Shannon De Lima wedded Anthony in Dominican Republic (2014). The couple separated in 2013 after a year together but reunited after she appeared on his 2014 music video. Then they sealed their love on the altar, the same year.
In August, the singer-model who seem to have an undying affection for his ex wife, attended J. Lo’s Las Vegas show where he posed for a picture with her and then boyfriend, Casper Smart.

Last Thursday, the celebrity couple [J. Lo and Anthony] were present at this year’s Latin Grammy Awards where he kicked off his performance with the hit track “I Need To Know,” “Tu Amor Me Hace Bien,” and “Vivir Mi Vida,” before she joined him on stage.
Both singers treated the cheering crowd to a classic 1984 Spanish hit “Olvidame y Pega la Vuelta.”
It was J. Lo’s first ever performance at the Latin Grammy Awards, so it was worth celebrating.
The former lovebirds couldn’t hold themselves back from the urge to share an affectionate kiss on stage. They did it with great excitement though they’re forbidden to do so – as Shannon would have it. And he said afterwards, “she’s like my sister.”
We all know brothers don’t kiss their sisters. Oh no, that was a “holy” kiss, forgive me for the error.
Reports confirm the duet was immediately available for downloads on iTunes following the wonderful performance.
However, seems his later explanations for the “crime” didn’t go down well with Shannon. Not even with rumors that Anthony and J. Lo are “getting back together.” That wasn’t the only problem.
Lopez was honored to present the Latin Recording Academy’s Person of the Year award to him.

Before releasing the award, she gave a short speech while the crowd cheered. “He will always be many things in my life — a mentor, a soulmate, a father. He is not only a Person of the Year, he is a living legend,”she said.
To make matters worse, and somehow confirm the rumors, Anthony dedicated the honor to his children and did not thank De Lima, a loving but jealous wife.
In his words right there on stage, Anthony said: “You have sacrificed — more than anyone — to see Daddy standing here after 30 years.
“You guys are living this moment with me. Alex, Arianna, Christina, Ryan, Max and Emme — I am yours.”
Surgeon GeneralJoycelyn Elders was fired by PresidentBill Clinton on December 9, 1994 for suggesting masturbation to be part of the sex education curriculum for students, this event raised public awareness on the need for masturbation. Subsequently, the campaigns successfully changed the month of May, to a month of masturbation.
