Jennifer Lopez’s teary homage to her past loves
The star performs a song onstage with look-alikes of Diddy, Ben Affleck, and Marc Anthony.
Jennifer Lopez was spreading the love on Saturday night, but deep inside she was feeling mixed emotions. At her jam-packed Mohegan Sun concert in Montville, Conn., the 42-year-old put together a bit focused around her love songs.
“You want to talk about love? I can talk about love. Oh, the stories!” she said during a heartfelt speech to the audience before breaking out with her hit “If You Had My Love.” Afterwards she said, “That’s the first song I wrote about love. And this is the last song I wrote about love. A lot has happened since then!”
As she belted out one of her newer songs, a montage of male and female dance pairs whirled behind her. They paid homage to her past romances: her with a Diddy-esque person, her and a Ben Affleck type and lastly her and a Marc Anthony lookalike.
“A little trip down memory lane,” the star, who separated from her husband of seven years Marc Anthony in July, said, as she paused and looked down. When the camera zoomed in and showed her starting to tear up, the crowd gave her a standing ovation.
