I’m not sure how James Corden’s late-night show is doing overall, but American audiences have really, really embraced his Carpool Karaoke. It’s a consistently great bit, and he keeps bringing in interesting musical talent to play. I still cry watching the Stevie Wonder one (Wonder calls Corden’s wife to sing to her), and I still laugh hysterically at the Adele one. Anyway, Corden’s latest Carpool Karaoke episode was with Jennifer Lopez.
Ordinarily, I would have just included this in the links or something, but Jennifer dropped a blind item in the middle of the episode. She and James were talking about her engagements and marriages, and J.Lo revealed something new. First, the background – she’s been married three times, to Ojani Noa, Cris Judd and Marc Anthony. She was also notably engaged to Ben Affleck, as in he gave her a giant pink diamond and she said yes. But here’s what Jennifer says now:
“I’ve had some amazing proposals. I don’t want to compare one to the other. They were all pretty spectacular. They were nice. And then there’s some that asked me to marry them and I said no. I’ve been married three times. I’ve been proposed to five times.”
So… who proposed to her and she said no? I think she’s miscounting, by the way. I think she’s had more than five proposals, especially if she’s said no to “some” of the proposals. I think – really, genuinely believe – that Casper Smart has proposed to her in some way. Maybe not with a ring in hand, but I believe that they’ve talked about getting married. I also think Puffy probably proposed, don’t you? And who else? There was probably someone else in the early days, don’t you think?
