One highlight of Thursday’s edition of American Idol was the debut of Jennifer Lopez’s new video Dance Again, in which the super-sexy 42-year-old diva gets down and dirty in an orgy with a host of people, including her 24-year-old lover, Casper Smart.
In the video, Casper is extra friendly to J.Lo’s derrière, caressing his lady love’s famous rear end as she shows off her fab figure in a black Basque and hellacious heels. No slouch himself, the virile dancer Casper shows off his sturdy build, which is covered by tattoos.
Host Ryan Seacrest joked with Jenny from the Block as he introduced the hot and heavy clip, asking the beauty, “Is there any special chemistry with you and any of the dancers?”
“It’s fun and dancy and full of joy,” she demurred.
Much has been made of the couple’s 18-year age difference, but J.Lo’s hardly the first mega-star to dip into the fountain of youth for companionship: the late Elizabeth Taylor was 20 years older than ex-husband Larry Fortensky; Cher was 17 years older than her 80s boyfriend, Rob Camiletti; and Mariah Carey’s 12 years older than her husband, Nick Cannon.
Lopez told Vogue in a recent chat that Casper’s “adorable” and “a good egg,” leaving it at that.
“I don’t want to talk about it too much,” the A-lister said. “It’s my private thing.”
The mother-of-two last year ended her seven-year marriage to Marc Anthony, though the two still work together on the Univision music show, Q’Viva!
