A little less than a year ago, Jennifer Lopez and her then-husband Marc Anthony were rubbing up all over each other during their hot, PDA-filled "American Idol" finale performance. But this Thursday on "Idol," Jennifer was rubbing up on 24-year-old backup dancer Casper Smart, her new love interest--and possibly rubbing her new relationship in Marc's face--as she introduced her latest racy music video, "Dance Again." The video preview featured many steamy J.Lo/Casper scenes that made her old finale performance with Marc look like something by Clay Aiken, and it might not have been totally appropriate viewing for kids watching at home (or for the few underage "Idol" contestants who were sitting on the stage, come to think of it).
"Was there any chemistry on the set of the video with any of the dancers?" Ryan Seacrest joked smarmily, as he introduced the video on Thursday's "Idol" results show. J.Lo just giggled and blushed like a schoolgirl half Casper's age. "It's a good video," she smiled. "I can't wait for you all to see it! Enjoy it--it has a great message, and I hope everybody likes it."
I'm not really sure what "message" J.Lo was referring to, unless it was a direct message to her ex along the lines of, "Yo, Marc: I'm soooo over you!" At one point in the video, the screen read: "Always remember, you will live, you will love, you will dance again." (And apparently, if you're J.Lo, you'll do these things while blindfolded, on national television, with a guy 17 years your junior!)
Ironically, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony announced this week that they'll reunite onstage to perform with the cast of their reality show "¡Q'Viva!" in Las Vegas on May 26--but Jennifer's video with Casper totally eclipsed that news. Sorry, Marc.
