The music mogul and business woman sat down with Oprah at her "2020 Vision: Your Life In Focus" tour Saturday, saying she's okay with no marriage. Lopez explained her relationship with former Yankees player Alex Rodriguez and how she is letting things happen naturally. The couple have been dating since 2017. She recalled the moment Alex "ARod" Rodriguez proposed to her, saying she thought marriage would come in the following months. "Your old thinking comes right back, all that hopeless romantic [stuff] that made me get married three times," she said. Lopez went on to explain if her and Alex are going to be life partners, then what is the rush. They are both supporting each others goals right now.

50 year old Lopez was previously married to Ojani Noah from 1997 to 1998, Choreographer Chris Judd from 2001 to 2003 and Music Superstar and father of twins Max and Emmy, Marc Anthony from 2004 to 20014. When asked what has different this time, she said, "What [Alex] Says, he does..every time. And that is big." She went on to say she has never had anyone that wants her to shine and grow the way he does, crediting him for much of her success this year. She said there is no competition but they mirror each other in the way they want to live life.
Lopez had a big year, including a box office smash Hustlers movie and opened up about her recent Oscar snub, saying she felt like she let her whole team down. "Most of my team has been with me for 20, 25 years..." The Hustlers star said she had to "reexamine" why she does what she does. "You want peoples validation," she said, and adding that she wants people to say good job but added, "No, you don’t need that, you do this because you love it." Even her ex-finace Ben Affleck was surprised she wasn't nominated in a recent unused sit down with The New York Times. "She had her biggest hit movie at 50? how F---ing baller!"
The triple threat didn't let her Oscar snub get her down too much, saying she looked back at the amazing year she's had. Lopes and Shakira headlined the 2020 Super Bowl Halftime show, highlighting her 11 year-old daughter Emmy. This is off the heels of her It's My Party Tour, which Emmy also sang in. The star has had one amazing year as a 50 year old entertainer and doesn't plan on slowing down any time soon. She also didn't fail to show up in JLO etiquette with a fashion statement.
