Jennifer Lopez made a stunning appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in a vibrant red dress and matching heels. The talented 52-year-old singer was promoting her latest film, Marry Me, which features stars such as Owen Wilson, Maluma, and Sarah Silverman. During the show, she also performed the movie’s title track with Maluma, sporting a revealing two-piece outfit that flaunted her toned abs. Overall, JLo’s appearance was nothing short of sensational!
The upcoming film Marry Me, a delightful blend of romance, music and comedy, features the talented singer Kat Valdez who finds herself betrayed just before her wedding day. She then takes an unexpected decision to tie the knot with one of her fans. The movie will be released on February 11, and in celebration of this, Jennifer Lopez and Jimmy Fallon participated in an array of games centered around weddings.
The fun and games began with the duo catching roses shot out of cannons. They then took on the task of carrying dummy versions of a bride and groom over a threshold and onto a wedding bed. Despite winning the first two rounds, Lopez ended up losing the third challenge to Fallon. This particular challenge involved digging through not one but two wedding cakes in search of a precious wedding ring.
The singer made a humorous remark about the lack of a ring and how dirty their hands got during the activity.
In an interview, Ben Affleck’s partner shared a fun anecdote about filming a scene for the movie “Marry Me.” Instead of filming a fake concert on a movie set, they decided to crash one of Maluma’s concerts for the scene. The producer in her couldn’t resist taking advantage of the opportunity when Maluma had two nights at Madison Square Garden. She suggested filming the scene during his concert, and Maluma agreed to it.
“It was absolutely incredible! This particular moment made its way into the final cut of the movie, and nobody anticipated my surprise appearance at his concert. I had never performed live with him before, so when I stepped out on stage, the audience went crazy with excitement. We captured the entire experience on film, and it was an unforgettable opportunity for us to sing together,” she shared.
In addition, she expressed her excitement for having the opportunity to create the soundtrack for the film. “It’s amazing that I can finally sing and produce an album specifically for a movie. It’s like merging my two passions,” she exclaimed. She also mentioned that the character she portrayed in the movie was similar to herself, with both leading public and personal lives while struggling to balance them. She humorously admitted to failing at times.
According to the New Yorker herself, the soundtrack has a distinctive quality. She emphasized that it’s unlike anything you’ve heard on a Jennifer Lopez or Maluma album. Instead, it’s a collection of tracks that captures the essence of the movie’s protagonists – Kat and Bastian. These songs were thoughtfully selected to enhance the storyline and evoke the feelings associated with a classic musical. Ultimately, the soundtrack tells a beautiful tale of finding true love.
During the interview, the popular musician took a moment to touch on her teenage twins, Emme and Max, whom she shares with her former spouse, Marc Anthony. She expressed that as they grow older, around 11 1/2 to 12 years old, they start to mature and become more like adults in a smaller physique. Jennifer also noted that during this time, they tend to push away from their parents to establish their own identity and perspective of the world. Despite her desire to be close to them, she joked that they would often remind her to give them space and refrain from touching them.
During her performance, Lopez took a moment to share some personal sentiments about her mother, Guadalupe Rodriguez, who was present in the audience. She expressed her lifelong passion for singing and dancing, which was instilled by her mother’s love for musicals from a young age. Despite growing up in the Bronx with limited resources, Lopez feels fortunate and blessed to be living her dream every day.
In the movie Marry Me, the protagonist decides to say yes to a proposal from a fan who held up a sign during a concert. During a discussion about this scene, Jennifer Lopez shared a personal experience that was similar. She recalled a woman who held up a sign at one of her concerts saying that she had been waiting 14 years to tell J.Lo that she helped her become the woman she is today. This moment touched Lopez deeply and made her emotional. She realized that her music was touching people’s lives in ways that she never expected, and she was amazed to see fans with her name tattooed on their backs during meet and greets.
After her initial performance, Jennifer Lopez changed into a stunning two-piece ensemble that flaunted her toned abs. She sang the title song of the movie with Maluma while donning this stylish outfit. The outfit consisted of a white bra top, a low-cut white skirt that was held up by thin strings, and a white jacket on top. On the other hand, Juan Luis Londoño Arias aka Maluma wore a mint suit with a white t-shirt underneath.
The 28-year-old singer from Colombia looked fantastic in a stunning red outfit, which she paired with white shoes and black-rimmed glasses. She shared a sneak peek of her attire on Instagram to promote the show. The event also included appearances from NBA player Stephen Curry and his wife, Ayesha Curry, a renowned author. Stephen looked sharp in a tan suit, while Ayesha dazzled in a shimmering grey dress. The couple joined the event via video call.
During their appearance on The Tonight Show, Ayesha and Steph Curry discussed their upcoming HBO Max gameshow About Last Night, which they host and executive produce. When Jimmy Fallon asked about their first impressions of each other, Ayesha shared a funny anecdote that had the audience in stitches. She reminisced about meeting Steph when she was just 14 years old and thinking he was cute, but her family teasing her by saying he looked like her brother. Steph also shared a humorous story about President Barack Obama disagreeing with his title as the greatest shooter in NBA history and preferring his teammate Klay Thompson instead. Catch About Last Night when it premieres on February 10th!
During our championship win in 2015, I had the pleasure of playing alongside Klay Thompson, who is an incredible shooter and teammate. As part of our celebration, we were honored with a visit to the White House to meet President Obama. While on stage, President Obama commented on our shooting abilities and stated that while I was a great shooter, Klay’s form was much prettier than mine. I took it in stride and agreed with him, admitting that if I were to teach someone how to shoot, Klay’s textbook form would be the perfect example. Despite this, I still believe that I am the better shooter.
