She’s turning 43 this year, but Jennifer Lopez’s sure not acting or dressing like a middle-aged woman! After breaking up with hubby Marc Anthony in July 2011 (hubby number three, we might add), she got together with backup dancer Casper Smart, 25, and the two have just joined forces for her steamy new video Dance Again.
J-Lo is clearly trying to get everyone’s attention with her hot new vid, which she debuted on American Idol, but is she also trying to make ex-Marc Anthony jealous? Marc and his new Venezuelan model girlfriend Shannon De Lima were recently spotted with J-Lo’s good pals David and Victoria Beckham at the Latin Music Awards VIP reception in Los Angeles. Jen is a longtime friend of the Beckhams and couldn’t have been thrilled to see the four of them posing for the paps together. And then there’s the fact that Shannon looks like a taller, younger version of J-Lo!
Since their breakup, the star has insisted that her relationship with her ex is amicable, but her recent comments may point to some serious tension. The singer called Marc a “pig” during the taping of talent show Q’Viva! after he described two scantily-clad dancers as “honeys.” The two created Q’Viva before their breakup and will share a stage in Vegas for the show’s May launch. Sounds like J-Lo is doing all she can to get Marc’s attention before then!
If the steamy Dance Again vid doesn’t get Marc to do a double take, then nothing will. She told the press that in rehearsals she had a few grouchy moments because she was “kind of fasting for the video to get… in really great shape.” And can you ever see J-Lo’s famous shape in the vid! The sultry footage comes just a month after the singer made headlines for having a wardrobe malfunction in her low-cut dress at the Oscars.
Still not paying attention, Marc? Well, take a look at The Wanted singer Max George, 23, getting a hug from J-Lo on a recent episode of American Idol!
