I'm trying to keep that part of my life very personal and sacred."

Private: Jennifer Anthony & Cleopatra

In her personal life she was often disappointed in her relationships (see above) - her current husband is the latino super Star Marc Anthony (born: 1969), who divorced former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres (born: 1974, photo left) last year just before his marriage to Jennifer.

In 2001 the salsa Star had already sang a duet: "No Me Ames" (You don't love me). Marc's nickname for JLo is "Cleopatra." His namesake, the Roman General Marc Anton, was the lover of the Egyptian Queen Cleopatra. Marc Antony's family claimed they had descended from Anton.

Jennifer Lopez only wants to be named Jennifer Anthony. Maybe soon her fans will call her "JAn" instead of "JLo"


 

New "duet" with Marc


Right now JLo is a foster mother for Anthony's three children (age group 1-10) who are living in her Beverly Hill's villa. It is expected that maybe a fourth child will soon follow - her own. Marc Anthony (photo left) just visited Spain for a series of live performances and sang songs from his first CD "in Spanish" "Amar sin mentiras" (Loving without lying). The second song of this album is a romantic duet with his wife - with the revealing title: "Escapemonos" (Let's escape).

His "Jenni" accompanied him during his tour in Spain and she did not leave his side.

 


 

New song

JLo's new song "Get right" is the single maxi of her brand new CD "Rebirth". Other guests on the album include Fat Joe, Marc Anthony and Fabolous. In the video clip JLo is acting as a decent secretary - with a wig.

As you can see on the CD cover (foto left), Jennifer does not need a hairpiece - except for the extensions everything is real.

(at JLo.net you can download for free the making of the video "Get right.")

 

 

 


 


"Get right" already recorded?

The King of American R&B Usher already recorded JLo's song "Get right". Usher recorded it as a single cold "Ride".

The song wasn't featured on his smash hit album Confessions, but it was released as a 12-inch club record and on the Internet last year. His comment: "I hate it. And I'd better get some of the publishing (rights). I am really surprised that JLo released it."


Actually, the real one to blame is producer Rich Harrison. He produced both "Ride" and "Get right" and used both horn track as the same vocal guidelines. The only difference is that "Get right" gets it title right from rapper fabolous, who had a rap song of the same name that was grafted onto JLo's record.

 



New lips?

An internet site is claiming that she had plastic surgery - a lip reduction and a nose job. They compare JLo's lips and nose with some photos to "prove" it.

They speculate that the singer had her lip reduction and her nose job some time between 1998 - 2003.
