Jennifer Lopez made a bold statement and stole the show at the 2021 American Music Awards on Sunday night in Los Angeles.
While there were plenty of strong performances from artists old and new, including Olivia Rodrigo and New Kids on the Block, it was J-Lo who got everyone talking. She began in an elegant gown in front of an orchestra, singing her new song On My Way from her upcoming romantic comedy Marry Me, which also stars Owen Wilson.
However, there was no sign of her beau Ben Affleck at the event, who may have stayed at home instead of attending. She finished her wedding-themed routine by throwing her veil into the audience like a bouquet of flowers.
J-Lo’s wedding dress performance comes just a few days after she told Today show that she still believes in marriage. “I don’t know, yeah, I guess,’ she said when asked if she would walk down the aisle again. ‘I still believe in happily ever after, for sure, 100 percent.”
The actress, who has 13-year-old twins Emme and Max with ex-husband Marc Anthony, stated that she is not ashamed of her romantic history and is ‘really proud’ of where she is today.
Jennifer reunited with her ex-fiancé Ben Affleck earlier this year after she called off her engagement to Alex Rodriguez.
They previously dated between 2002 and 2004, and were dubbed ‘Bennifer.’ To add fuel to the fire, Jen’s former publicist Rob Shuter stated last month that he could see the couple marrying, implying that Ben was the one who got away.
Their romance has grown stronger this year, which has fueled the rumours. According to her performance, J-Lo isn’t afraid to try on a dress and entertain the idea of wearing one.
