Jennifer Lopez says she transformed Ben Affleck

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck take in a game at Fenway Park in 2003.

Ben Affleck is a Hollywood success and he has . . . Jennifer Lopez to thank for it. At least according to Jennifer Lopez. Talking to Andy Cohen on “Watch What Happens Live,” J.Lo, who was famously engaged to Ben, says the Oscar winner was something of a schlub when they got together. “Was the transformation of Ben Affleck your doing?” Cohen asked. “Did you dress him when you were dating?” Lopez happily took credit. “Yeah, I did kind of like say, ‘You need to be . . . you’re a movie star, you should wear a suit. You should do this with your hair. For sure. I mean, I do that and by the way, guys do that to girls too.” We’re pretty sure “Argo” would have won the Academy Award had Ben never met J.Lo, but who knows.

She means business! Jennifer Lopez amazes in sheer white blouse and trousers to dash to an event after lunch with mom

Jennifer Lopez rarely disappoints when it comes to her outfits whether casual or glamourous.

The American Idol judge, 44, was spotless in her attire as she left her New York hotel to head to the NuvoTV's 2015-2015 upfront.

Jennifer, who is the English language Latino network's Chief Creative Officer, dressed for success in a billowy white blouse featuring a center lace panel that outlined a brassiere underneath, along with matching white trousers, classy beige pumps and a white clutch.


She'd stopped off at her hotel just long enough to change following a leisurely lunch with her mother Guadalupe Rodriguez, and even had time to twist up her hair into a topknot.

Earlier in the day, Jennifer indulged in bread-sticks while lunching at Nello with her mother in Manhattan's Upper East Side neighbourhood.

Proving she's still 'Jenny from the Block,' the pop diva wore massive hoop earrings, flip-flops with a simple white T-shirt, and ripped boyfriend jeans.

The two-time Grammy nominee was joined by three other pals at the Italian restaurant, but there was no sign of her toyboy Casper Smart.





JLo - seen sipping from a champagne glass - also has six-year-old twins Emme and Max with ex-husband Marc Anthony.

'I went through a tremendous low,' she recently told People of their 2012 divorce.

'But I wouldn't change anything [about my past] because it made me who I am.'

Jennifer Lopez wears barely there top in sizzling album cover for ‘A.K.A.’


The singer shares a preview of her upcoming album, along with sexy artwork. She'll receive an Icon Award at this year's Billboard Music Awards ceremony.

Ten albums and Jennifer Lopez has still got it.

The 44-year-old “American Idol” judge revealed the art for her upcoming album “A.K.A.” on Monday.

On the cover, Lopez shows off her figure in a tight, red pencil skirt and a barely there strappy shirt. Lopez shared the photo on Twitter with a simple but tantalizing caption: “Coming soon.”

“Music has always been my first love,” Lopez said in a statement. "As a girl who grew up in the Bronx, I listened to everything. In my career, I have always made music that is a reflection of me and where I am in my life. I do what I feel and do things that feel authentic to me. I am a lot of different things and I do a lot of different things. I love hip-hop, pop, dance music and R&B."

"I have created a collection of songs that make me feel good and make me feel happy," Lopez added.
The Most Expensive Object Ever (Lives in Space)

May 12 (Bloomberg) –- The International Space Station is the single most expensive object ever created. Bloomberg takes a look at the numbers behind the near zero...

The new album, out June 17, features collaborations from Iggy Azalwea, Rick Ross, Sia, T.I., and others.

Lopez has another big event coming up, too. On Monday, the Billboard Music Awards announced that Lopez will receive the Icon Award at the May 18 ceremony.

Going for gold! Jennifer Lopez once again steals the spotlight from American Idol contestants in shimmering outfit

Jennifer Lopez's flawless body takes the gold.

The 44-year-old pop icon showed off her world-renowned curvaceous figure in a dazzling metallic Georges Chakra dress while arriving to the American Idol set on Thursday.

The mother of two stole the show with her body-hugging number that featured sheer panels on the side and along the arms.




Continuing to turn the FOX series into her own personal runway show, Jennifer teamed the golden ensemble with a pair of sky high Casadei stilettos which further accentuated her tan and toned pins.

The I Luh Ya Papi singer wore her highlighted locks loosely styled which cascaded down past her shoulders.

JLo -- who hasn't aged in over a decade -- flaunted her flawless skin and bone structure with bronze make-up and her natural pearly white smile.




The Parker star shared a photo of her stunning outfit on Instagram with the note, '#GlowingGoddessbyJLo #kohls #idol.'

Jennifer plugged her eighth fragrance Glowing Goddess, which recently hit the shelves at Kohl's, and whose ad features the talented star wearing the same glittery frock.

Lopez will next share the stage with former American Idol judge Nicki Minaj for the Powerhouse radio station concert on May 17 at Anaheim's Honda Center.



Capitol Records will drop her yet untitled eighth studio album - featuring Chris Brown, French Montana, and Pitbull - on June 17.

She will also voice a character in DreamWorks' animated alien flick Home - due out November 26 - with Rihanna, Steve Martin, and Jim Parsons.

The 13th season of American Idol airs Wednesdays and Thursdays through May 21.

A romantic end to a hard day's work: Jennifer Lopez enjoys cosy dinner with beau Casper Smart after American Idol

She was her usual glamorous self as she took her seat on the judging panel for American Idol on Wednesday, stepping out in a stunning gold leather-look dress.

But after a hard day's filming, Jennifer Lopez took the opportunity for a relaxing night out - swapping her clinging ensemble for a cosy white sweater and heading out for a romantic dinner with beau Casper Smart.

The star still looked as glamorous as ever as she sat in the passenger seat of their vehicle texting while Smart took the wheel.


The couple enjoyed dinner at West Hollywood hotspot Craig's for dinner and looked as in love as ever after two years of dating - with Casper holding the door open for her as she got into the car.

The star recently hinted that she feels in a better place in her relationships since splitting with husband Marc Anthony back in 2012.

'It's about finding a relationship that has enough good stuff to outweigh the bad, because nobody's perfect right?' she told Glamour UK.

'But without the spark that conflict brings, life would be so boring. I want a bit of chaos in a relationship, but I also want a bit of safety and order.'




Earlier in the day, the couple were spotted strolling hand in hand and smiling outside the American Idol studios in Los Angeles.

Jennifer teamed her stunning dress with hooped earrings and spiky suede platform heels while Casper sported a backwards baseball cap and tight black T-shirt which showed off his multiple tattoos.

Season 13 is down to seven finalists now, and the show allowed them to pick the songs for their competitors on Wednesday's edition.

The gift that keeps on giving! Jennifer Lopez struts her bountiful booty in skintight yellow dress as she arrives at American Idol

It was Competitor's Pick on Wednesday night's American Idol, but the dress that Jennifer Lopez was wearing was a nice choice too.

The shapely judge stole the attention as she strolled to the studio in Los Angeles before the seven finalists even got underway.

Jennifer, 44, was clad in an ultra clingy, shiny mustard-yellow frock that fit her like a glove and highlighted her most prominent physical asset - her backside.



In front the material covered her all the way up to her neck, but behind a sexy cut-out allowed glimpses of her shoulder blades and lower back where her golden-brown hair fell in expertly styled waves.

The tight skirt trailed to her knees and featured a slight slit in back to allow an easier stride and in those heels she probably needed it.

Jennifer's nude platform pumps probably added a good four inches to her modest 5 ft 5 frame while giving her dancer's calves a workout in the process.

Jennifer Lopez Stuns In Red Hot Lanvin Dress On ‘American Idol’

JLo sizzled on the set of ‘American Idol’ on March 27, wearing a gorgeous red Lanvin dress. The sexy judge definitely caused so many jaws to drop in this sultry number that accentuated her famous figure for the live elimination show.

Jennifer Lopez looked radiant on the March 27 episode of American Idol. Wearing a form-flattering Lanvin dress, the sexy singer showed off her famous figure while exuding plenty of sex appeal. Do you love the look as much as we do? VOTE below!

Jennifer Lopez’s ‘Idol’ Fashion

Jennifer selected a gorgeous, wetsuit-inspired dress from Lanvin’s Resort 2014 collection. With a corset bodice and sweetheart neckline, this dress hugged Jennifer in all the right places! Can you say cleavage!?

Complete with a waist-defining band, Jen’s famous lower half was shown off and accentuated — giving the Idol judge the perfect hourglass figure.

To complete her look, Jen opted to wear her highlighted locks in a half up, half down style with wispy pieces left down in the front for a softer and more feminine look. Wearing minimal jewelry, nude pumps and fresh-faced makeup, Jen allowed the stunning dress to speak for itself.

We love this look on Jennifer! Of course the sexy singer can pull off any color, but we especially love her in red. This is also a great look on the judge because it is sultry and flattering while not being too revealing.

Jennifer Lopez To Receive Prestigious GLAAD Award For 'The Fosters'


Puerto Rican sensation, Jennifer Lopez, will be presented with the prestigious Vanguard award at the upcoming GLAAD Media Awards in April.

She is also acknowledged for consistently speaking in favor of the LBGT community.

“Family is about love, and that’s a message Jennifer has shared with millions through her groundbreaking work on The Fosters.”

The “On the Floor” singer has been a strong advocate of LGBT community and a strong supporter of marriage equality.

“When it comes to gay marriage, I just believe in love. I believe that when two people find each other and love each other, they should be able to spend their lives together with all the same benefits and privileges as everyone,” said Jennifer Lopez, according to the organization.

On April 12th, the singer and actress will be honored with GLAAD’s highest honor, which is presented to artists and media professionals who, through their work, have increased the visibility and understanding of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

Exclusive: Jennifer Lopez Talks Chris Brown, Maxwell Duet, & Christmas Album

Fifteen years after the release of her debut On the 6, Jennifer Lopez continues her epic ride with her 10th album, due June 17. The project marks a return to her roots, with a star-studded guest list that includes Tyga, Big Sean, Robin Thicke, Wiz Khalifa, Maxwell, and French Montana, who appears on the Detail-produced single “I Luh Ya Papi.”

In between her jam-packed schedule as a judge on “American Idol,” executive producing the ABC Family drama “The Fosters,” and putting the finishing touches on her album, the multi-talented megastar and mother of two squeezed in time to speak with Rap-Up.

In our exclusive interview, J.Lo dropped details about her collaborations with R&B crooners Chris Brown, Robin Thicke, and Maxwell, and even revealed plans for a Christmas album produced by David Foster. Plus, could we see J.Lo headlining next year’s Super Bowl halftime show?

Have you finished the album yet?
Pretty much. There’s always that race to the finish line. We’re always doing last-minute things and getting it all finished, but for the most part, the bulk of it’s done.

Have you decided on a title?
Not yet. I have a few things in mind, but I always wait until the whole thing is mastered and then when I listen to it, I kinda decide at the last minute.

This is album number 10 for you. You’ve said that this feels like your first album all over again.
Yeah, it’s funny. It always feels that way. I love music so much and I really love the process of making an album, this one in particular because it took me so long. I came off tour last year, probably in January, and I got right back into the studio and I started working on it and I just took my time with it for the first time. Usually I do an album in a few months, but this one’s taking me a year to really put together and little by little I’ve been letting little pieces of it out and now we’re ready to let it go. Because it’s my 10th album, I think it feels a little more special.

You and Maxwell have a duet called “I Wanna Love.” What does that sound like?
It’s a ballad, kind of a mid-tempoey ballad. It’s just one of those really beautiful songs. I recorded it by myself first and I was like, “Ugh. You know who would be so beautiful on this record? Maxwell.” And Maxwell and I have known each other forever. Almost every album, we say we gotta do something. You have to wait for the right song and I finally got up the nerve to send it to him and said, “You’re gonna like this one.” I sent it to him, he loved it, and he was like, “OK. I’m gonna put my thing on it.” I’m really excited about it.

Robin Thicke is also on the album. What did you do together?
It’s funny. I actually played him a couple of different songs so he could see what I was doing and he was really excited about it. He picked the song he wanted to do. We did a song together called “Love Line” [produced] by Da Internz. It was actually his idea to get Wiz Khalifa on it.

Did you work with Future at all?
We did do some stuff together. I don’t know if that’s gonna be on the album. I might just save it.

How many songs did you record with Chris Brown?
On the album, I think it’s two or three. He wrote some of “Emotions,” “Same Girl,” and one more.

Will there be any duets between you and Chris?
No, we didn’t do any duets. It’s funny. He just came in and did the writer-producer thing. I love what he does. I love the energy he has in his music. We met and we were like we should do something together and he was like, “Yeah, yeah, yeah.” And he just came out to the studio and we listened to tracks and I was like, “I like that,” and he was like, “Yeah, I mess with that one too.” And the way he writes, he just kinda jumps in. We talked for a little while about just life and stuff and then he would just jump into the booth and start writing. It was pretty amazing. He’s very talented.

Have you decided what the next single is going to be?
We have three or four different choices, very, very strong contenders and it’s very hard to choose, but after a fun song like “I Luh Ya Papi,” my instinct is to go the total opposite way. But we’ll see.

What’s your favorite song on the album?
I have a couple that are my favorites. It’s hard. It’s like choosing which is your favorite child. You almost can’t do it. The one I did with Max Martin called “First Love” is one of my favorites. The other one that I did with Detail called “Worry” has such an amazing vibe to it. I did a ballad as well with Harmony that I think is probably gonna be a single. There’s so many, but those are a couple of my favorites.

A year ago, you were thinking about doing a Christmas album. Is that still in the works?
Yes. It’s with David Foster. It’s all about finding the right time to do things. David Foster and I sat down and talked about this over six, seven, eight months ago and we sat down and we just started singing. And then he came back to me and was like, “Hey, look what I did.” He’s such an amazing producer. It’s crazy. Then he played me from just little vocals that I was doing there with him with the piano, almost fully-produced Christmas songs. I was like, “Oh, my God.” He’s like, “We have to finish this album,” and I was like, “We have to do this album.” And so we’ve been talking about it. Actually I just saw him yesterday, so I’m hoping to do it. I don’t know if it’ll be for this year or next year, but I would love to.

Will you be covering classics and doing some original songs as well?
Yeah, I would like to do a couple of originals, but of course it will be classics.

Beyoncé, Madonna, and Janet Jackson have all done the Super Bowl, and we know you would be amazing. Have you been approached to perform at the halftime show?
Yeah, actually we have talked about it a couple times. It hasn’t worked out yet because of the timing, but maybe with this album we’ll be able to do it.


Jennifer Lopez Teases New Album, Writing With 'Very Talented' Chris Brown And Robin Thicke

Jennifer Lopez has kept fans waiting for a new album for three years but it promises to be worth the wait with the American Idol judge hooking up with the likes of Chris Brown and Robin Thicke featuring on the record.

The 'I Luh Ya Papi' singer has spent the last year recording what will eighth studio album in between fulfilling various other commitments such as appearing on American Idol, executive producing TV show The Fosters and juggling motherhood to her twins, Max and Emme, so she can be forgiven for putting her album on the back burner.


Fear not though as J.Lo promises that it's on its way and features an impressive set of guest appearances to make up for the lengthy wait.

Revealing Chris Brown's involvement with the yet-to-be-titled record, Jennifer told Rap-Up.com: “On the album, I think it’s two or three. He wrote some of “Emotions,” “Same Girl,” and one more.”

She continued: “No, we didn’t do any duets. It’s funny. He just came in and did the writer-producer thing. I love what he does. I love the energy he has in his music. We met and we were like we should do something together and he was like, “Yeah, yeah, yeah.” And he just came out to the studio and we listened to tracks and I was like, “I like that,” and he was like, 'Yeah, I mess with that one too.'”


Heaping further praise on the troubled star who is currently in jail after violating his parole conditions, J.Lo added: “And the way he writes, he just kinda jumps in. We talked for a little while about just life and stuff and then he would just jump into the booth and start writing. It was pretty amazing. He’s very talented.”

In addition to Maxwell and Chris Brown, the 44-year-old has also teamed up with Robin Thicke.

“It’s funny. I actually played him a couple of different songs so he could see what I was doing and he was really excited about it,” Jennifer said of their collaboration.

“He picked the song he wanted to do. We did a song together called 'Love Line' [produced] by Da Internz. It was actually his idea to get Wiz Khalifa on it.”

The 'On The Floor' hitmaker released her last studio album 'Love?' in 2011 and her next offering is set for release on June 17. We can't wait!
