Jennifer Lopez Awkwardly Avoids A Kiss From Marc Anthony On Stage
Jennifer Lopez Awkwardly Avoids A Kiss From Marc Anthony On Stage

Estranged couple Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony put on a united front as they celebrated the live finale of their TV talent show on Saturday night (26May12), but Marc’s cringeworthy attempt to smooch his ex wife made for awkward viewing.

J-Lo and the Latino singer Marc ended their seven-year marriage last year, and in April Anthony moved to make their separation official by filing for divorce.

But despite their split, the pair pushed forward with their earlier plans to shoot reality series Q’Viva! The Chosen this spring, and together the two toasted the programme’s last episode at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The pair walked out onto the stage hand-in-hand, proiving that they remain on good terms.

Both Jennifer and Marc showcased seperate performances, but they reunited on stage at the end of the evening to share a tender embrace. However, Marc took the friendly hug a step to far by trying to kiss his former wife in front of the audience. Jennifer awkwardly avoided the kiss, but the embarrassment on her face was plain for all to see.

Somewhat tellingly, Marc has also kept his wedding ring on, despite being single now for over ten months. Jennifer, meanwhile, has moved on with her toyboy lover, dancer Casper Smart.

Later that night, the beauty met up with Casper to celebrate the release of her new single Goin’ In at nearby nightclub Hyde Bellagio.

The predictable exit of pretty Hollie Cavanagh from American Idol was overshadowed by an astonishing half time performance from judge Jennifer Lopez.

Astonishing, and not necessarily for the right reasons, as the 42-year-old seemed to have something to prove as she unleashed a cringeworthy public display of affection with her dancer boyfriend, Casper Smart, during a performance of new single Dance Again.

Taking the stage in nothing but a sequin covered bodice and a pair of black tights, J-Lo looked fantastic, but the skimpy outfit’s purpose was revealed when Casper, 25, pulled away from the rest of the backing dancers to perform alone with his older lover. Totally unnecessarily for everyone watching, the youngster grabbed the mother-of-two’s derriere as they performed an x-rated semi-tango. Despite the effort, the pair appeared to lack chemistry.

It was a stark contrast to J-Lo’s performance with estranged husband Marc Anthony at last year’s Idol finale, which was sparking with electricity.

At the end of the performance, Casper picked confetti out of J-Lo’s hair after a flurry of ticker tape fell down on them. She immediately said to the audience: ‘He’s so cute!’

Jennifer proved that she hasn’t learned anything from her nauseating 2002 video for Jenny from the Block which co-starred her then boyfriend Ben Affleck. The pair were shown cavorting on a yacht, with the Academy Award winning actor nuzzling into J-Lo’s bikini clad body and untying her hot pink top.

Now married to Jennifer Garner with three little ones, Ben Affleck - who was engaged to marry the Latino singer - says he regrets doing the video.

It looks as though things aren’t going as good as we thought for America Idol Judge Jennifer Lopez and her toy-boy beau Casper Smart. 

The couple were seen driving in a convertible ahead of J.Lo’s appearance on the talent show, and onlookers said they saw the pair bickering. After an argument, Jennifer reportedly left Casper in the car without a goodbye kiss, while he did little to resolve the situation by glaring into his lap in silence. 

However, Jennifer, 42, quickly put the argument behind her as she glammed up for her appearance on the American talent show that evening. Wearing a gorgeous sequin cocktail dress and her hair elegantly pinned back, the singer exuded Hollywood glamour.

Professional dancer Casper is seventeen years her juniour at just 25, but Jennifer has made no secret of the fact that she would love to have children with him. She admitted to People: ‘It would be a blessing. [Kids] just bring so much joy and happiness to your life, [and] they just bring you right back down to earth.’

The pair began dating last November after Jennifer split with singer Marc Anthony, whom she was married to for seven years. Marc is also the Father of their twins, Max and Emme.

She is happier than ever with new toyboy lover, Casper Smart, which may be why Jennifer Lopez is open to the possibility of having more children.

The mother of two says that giving birth again would be ‘a blessing.’ Starring in the upcoming film What to Expect When You’re Expecting gave the 42-year-old singer and actress a reason to open up about her desire to procreate. She admitted to People: ‘It would be a blessing. [Kids] just bring so much joy and happiness to your life, [and] they just bring you right back down to earth.’

Right now though, J-Lo says she is focusing on her career - and her much younger toyboy. In addition to promoting her ensemble comedy, which hits movie theatres on May 18, she is juggling her American Idol duties and preparing for an upcoming tour. Stating the obvious, she said: ‘I’ve got my hands full.’

She added that she finds balance by putting four-year-old twins Max and Emme first at all times.

Jennifer told the magazine: ‘That’s my philosophy. So as long as that’s…working in the right way, then I can dedicate whatever time I need to dedicate to my career. You just do the best you can, and say no when you have to say no.’

The Dance Again singer also acknowledged that, though she and ex-husband Marc Anthony are not currently together, she has had helping raising her twins, saying: ‘I have a lot of great people in my life who help…at work and at home. I have a great family - so all together - we do it. It takes a village.’

She also has the help of 24-year-old boyfriend Casper Smart, though her ex does not want the dancer around his kids.

J-Lo announced that her marriage was over last July, with Marc being the one to officially file for divorce this April.

They have been amicably working on the musical reality show Q’Viva! The Chosen.

Jennifer Lopez held a press conference to announce her new tour, and dazzled onlooked with her charm and perfect pins.

Announcing a “ground breaking” tour with fellow Latino star Enrique Iglesias, the 42-year-old wore a jewelled snake around her neck and wore a gorgeous, figure hugging black and peach mini-dress.

Well-known for her love of serpents, J-Lo dazzled as the mock reptile hung down her hour-glass physique. Away from her jewellery, the diva also caught the eye as she flashed her toned, tanned legs in black stilettos.

She is teaming up with Enrique and Latin group Wisin Y Yandel for a tour of 13 cities in North America.

J-Lo told the audience: “I think it’s going to be one of the most historic tours ever. I don’t think that there has ever been something like this that these Latinos have come together like this as family, international. English and Spanish. I just think it’s very ground breaking.”

The singer is currently dating dancer Casper Smart, following her split from third husband Marc Anthony last year. Jennifer recently spoke of the split, admitting: “Without going into detail… it’s just really, really sad. And look, we are still going through it, and it’s emotional sometimes and difficult. We’re still friends and we’re parents but it’s going to take time. It’s tough.”

Singer Jennifer Lopez is giving up her spot on the panel for center stage as she performs on May 3rd episode of American Idol.

The American Idol judge will show the remaining contestants how to shake their derrière when she performs her controversial song “Dance Again” with boy toy boyfriend Casper Smart, Celebuzz has exclusively learned.

The music video for the single, a collaboration with rapper Pitbull, debuted on April 5. Now, 42-year-old J.Lo and Casper, 25, will re-create the smoldering scenes from the sexy video with a live performance that one production source described as “sensational” and in the same league as her performance of “On the Floor” during last year’s Idol.

“J.Lo’s dancers began learning the choreography for the routine about a week ago and Jennifer joined them for a rehearsal last Saturday (April 21),” a production source reported. “There’s another week-and-a-half of intense rehearsals before the performance.”

The source continued: “There’s no word yet on whether Lopez will pre-tape the “Dance Again” performance and air it as-live, as she did for “On The Floor.”

We recently revealed how J.Lo is set to tour with heartthrob Enrique Iglesias, so now we have two things to look forward to!

Reports today have suggested that Enrique Iglesias will join Jennifer Lopez on a co-headline world tour.

Jennifer and Enrique will allegedly spend most of May rehearsing for the string of gigs and are expected to play over 60 dates across the world. A source told Celebuzz: “J.Lo and her team have blocked out more than a month of their schedules, beginning May 4, to start intense rehearsals, each day, at a sound stage in the Los Angeles area. This will be a huge tour, complete with a lavish set, full band and team of dancers.”

The world tour will be Jennifer’s first and will start in South America in June. It will then move on to North America in July, before hitting Asia and Europe later in the year.

Jennifer recently told how she is still trying to get over her split from Marc Anthony, saying: “Without going into detail… it’s just really, really sad. And look, we are still going through it, and it’s emotional sometimes and difficult. We’re still friends and we’re parents but it’s going to take time. It’s tough.” Jennifer’s current boyfriend and dancer, Casper Smart, is said to have choreographed routines for the shows.

Jennifer and Enrique recently teamed up for duet ‘Mouth 2 Mouth’, which featured on a repackaged version of Enrique’s Euphoria album.

American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez has spoken out in defence of her manager Benny Medina, after it was claimed that he had criticised the singer. Jennifer stated that she had been in the entertainment industry for long enough to realise that the press can often take someone’s comments out of context.

Lopez explained, “I know Benny and he’s like my best friend, like I said, my creative soulmate. I know the way he says things and I know he would never say anything that would be hurtful to me in any way.”
 
She added, “So things can be taken out of context and, you know, I’ve done interviews for a long time. You have to just know what is going to be misconstrued, let’s say. I trust [Medina] completely.”
 
Jennifer Lopez recently admitted that it can be quite difficult raising children, especially when you add the fact that she is split from her children’s father Marc Anthony. However, Jennifer admits that Marc has been fantastic and has helped her more than anybody could ever imagine.

American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez has revealed how she still finds it saddening that her relationship with Marc Anthony, who she has two children with, did not work out. Jennifer admitted that they are still working through things and she is very proud of how grown up both she and Marc have been about it.

Lopez explained, “Without going into detail… it’s just really, really sad. And look, we are still going through it, and it’s emotional sometimes and difficult. We’re still friends and we’re parents but it’s going to take time. It’s tough.”
 
Jennifer then went on to admit that she is very proud of herself and Marc for the way that they have handled the whole situation. She added, “But for the most part, I feel very proud of the way we’re handling it. I really do. We are doing the best we can for the kids.”
 
Lopez continued, “It’s very dignified and trying to be above all the emotions and pain that come along with a divorce and a family breaking apart. This is grown-up stuff. It’s real, serious, grown-up stuff.”
 
Jennifer Lopez is currently dating Casper Smart.

There must be something in the water or in the air because it seems that every celebrity in the business has been talking about their parenting skills. Angelina Jolie praised Brad Pitt at the start of the month, Brian Austin Green praised Megan Fox after that, then Madonna discussed her parenting skills and more recently Jessica Alba talked about parenting. Now it is the turn of American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez.

Lopez explained, “They do something to you where you want to do everything right for them…And obviously no parent does everything right. It’s this weird thing that happens where you are striving to be as good as you can be so that they turn out well.”
 
She added, “That requires that you be a really great, evolved, aware person in every moment. Which is pretty awesome. But it’s also putting tremendous pressure on yourself—which is why women feel so guilty!” Jennifer then admitted that her ex husband Marc Anthony has been vital in building her self confidence.
 
Lopez continued, “He always told me what a beautiful voice I have. He was like, ‘It’s in there; you just gotta let it out. It’s a confidence thing with you.’ Then all of a sudden one day I was like, I’m good at this!”
 
The full interview is in the April edition of Vogue magazine.

Kate Middleton following the Dukan Diet?

It has been reported that the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton has been following the world famous Dukan Diet. Kate joins a number of celebrities and famous faces, who have been following the Dukan Diet for years but not everybody is convinced that it is the safest diet to follow.

The Dukan Diet works in four phases. The first two phases aim to help you lose the weight and the second two phases help you to keep the weight off. However, some experts believe that the Dukan Diet is not a nutritionally sound diet.
 
The Dukan Diet cuts out dairy products, fruits and whole grains. This means that the body is missing out on vitamin D and calcium from the dairy products, as well as some important disease battling components found in fruits and whole grains.
 
Still, Kate Middleton, along with a number of other famous people, including Jennifer Lopez and Gisele Bundchen, swear by the Dukan Diet. The Dukan Diet compared to the Atkins Diet has a few similarities and is just as famous. However, both diets have their critics.
 
Do you think Kate Middleton should be on the Dukan Diet?
