And we love her more than ever.
During Jennifer Lopez’s appearance on The Ellen show this Tuesday, she was challenged by the talk show host to a game of ‘Who’d you rather?’.
Ellen’s favourite game has been played by everyone from Rihanna and Niall Horan to Rebel Wilson and even Hillary Clinton, with each of them choosing their dream crush, or in Hillary’s case, her Vice President.
For Jennifer Lopez, however, the purpose of this game was about finding a future man.
‘She says she’s single at the moment’, Ellen joked about J-Lo who is rumoured to be dating Drake. ‘She’s too busy and doesn’t have time for first dates and stuff, so we’re going to find a man for her in a game we call “Who’d you rather?”’
The first choice that J-Lo faced was between Harry Styles and Zac Efron, which the singer, originally sceptical of the game, definitely seemed to approve of. ‘Ok this will be fun. I like this one’, she said, ‘It’s funny because I could do either. This is actually a very hard decision.’
She finally made her decision, announcing, ‘probably a couple of years ago I would have said Zac Efron, but today I’m going to say Harry Styles.’
As the game progressed, J-Lo herself seemed surprised at her loyalty to the One Direction singer as she chose him over almost everyone.
‘I love Nick’, she said when having to choose between him and Harry, ‘but I’m going to have to stick with Harry Styles’. ‘Still Harry’ she said repeatedly as she was shown photo after photo of celebrity men competing against him – everyone from The Weeknd and Brad Pitt to Chris Martin and Prince Harry.
Lenny Kravitz was the one who eventually knocked Harry out of the top spot, with her choice of boyfriend then moving rapidly from Leonardo DiCaprio to Bruno Mars, finally landing on Bradley Cooper.
Even though the game finished with Bradley in the winning position, Ellen and J-Lo decided to change the rules to make Harry Styles the final winner, despite being knocked out a few rounds before.
‘Let’s go back to Harry’ Jennifer laughed, as Ellen confirmed ‘So Harry is your boyfriend.’
‘He’s a little bit young for me,’ J-Lo admitted, to which Ellen replied, ‘people make a big deal that you date younger men.’
‘OK first of all stop’, J-Lo replied. ‘I don’t date younger men. It’s not like you have to be younger. It’s not about that. I just meet people and then if I go out with them, I go out with them. And if I like them, I like them. And if I don’t, I don’t. It’s about the person. It’s about who they are. It has nothing to do with age.’
