Jennifer Lopez Lets ‘Good Morning America’ Talk to Boyfriend Casper Smart
Despite three failed marriages and a high profile engagement to Ben Affleck where their Bennifer hype
nearly killed her career and his, Jennifer Lopez still believes in fairytales, even if her relationship with new beau Casper Smart didn’t begin in “love at first sight” fashion.
The singer and former ‘American Idol’ judge granted ‘Good Morning America’ an interview alongside tourmate and fellow Latin dynamo Enrique Iglesias. But what made this interview special is that it was the first time a major media outlet spoke with her much-younger BF and choreographer Smart. He was interviewed apart from the superstars, admitting that his relationship with J. Lo didn’t start out as love at first sight for either of ‘em.
First things first. Both Iglesias and Smart refer to Lopez as “the boss.” All hail the chief – La Lopez!
Smart, 25, is now the chief choreographer of the diva’s show. He echoed Iglesias’ sentiments. We see him in action, directing dancers. He then tells the folks at ‘GMA’ that when it comes to guiding Lopez through dance moves, it’s a back and forth process. “Sometimes I tell her something, give her notes,” he revealed. “Sometimes she gives me notes. But it doesn’t matter whose position is what because she is the boss.” Dually noted!
“It’s alright,” she joked when asked about taking direction from her man. Lopez doesn’t shy away from working with loved ones, reminding us that “I have done it many times. It’s difficult for some people. It depends on your personality.” We’re not going to mention ‘Gigli’ or anything, but it sounds like as long as her people and her lovers know she is the body around which they orbit, all will be right in her universe.
The ex-’Idol’ judge says “everything” is what the tabloids get wrong about her, but feels history and how she lives her life will vindicate her in the long run. She did not want to discuss Smart openly, but the ear-to-ear grin that spread across her face when his name comes up proves she is cray cray about him. She doesn’t dismiss the notion of marriage, saying, “For me, the biggest thing is the fairytale. I will never give up on that.”
The feeling is mutual. He flashes his pearly whites when talking about his lady love. It wasn’t love at first sight, according to Smart. “It was natural…it just happened,” he grins.
For his part, Iglesias has been with his girlfriend, tennis player Anna Kournikova, for 11 years without a ring. Hey, whatever works!
Lopez and Iglesias both say “You’re live show is better” during their co-chat, with Lopez admitting she watches his show and is blown away. How cute! The two biggest names in Latin music heart each other and keep each other on their toes.
