Alex Rodriguez was visibly uncomfortable at the 2019 Met Gala in New York City on Monday. Alex told reporters he was not happy wearing pink to the Met Gala.

Admitting he was "one thousand per cent" an accessory for fiancee Jennifer Lopez at fashion's big night, he repeatedly apologized to photogs for blocking shots of Jennifer. "I was trying to get out of the way. Honestly, the photographers are like, 'Get out of the way, A-Rod! Get out of the way!' I'm like, 'I'm sorry!'"

The former New York Yankees star insists he was happy to move out of the way because he was embarrassed to be photographed in his dusty pink tuxedo jacket.

"It was really fun (but) did you see how awful my tux was?" he asked. "It was like, pink!"

The retired baseball star is no doubt wary of the entertainment industry's efforts to de-emphasize masculinity in men - and he wants no part of that.

A-Rod says he fully understands why J.Lo commands the amount of attention she does. He was in awe of her energy and stamina after her high-energy performance for the Today Show hours earlier.

"The show on Monday was crazy... I was at home watching and... I was supposed to be sleeping because I got in the night before at like, three in the morning, but she had four or five outfit changes (in such a short space of time) - I was tired watching her!"

He said the gig took its toll on Jennifer: "When she got home, she was so tired, she literally collapsed and just slept for like, five hours."

    I got nothing

  • MJF

    "because he was embarrassed to be photographed in his dusty pink tuxedo jacket."
    ----------------------------------------------------
    So why wear it? Were you forced? Ugh... this sounds stupid

  • NewNew
  • MJF

    He kinda does look like a big pepto bismol bottle.

  • Just Me

    Why wear the jacket then, GOOF? He is not cute, look like Gomer Pyle. Ugh, just tell Jho you didn’t like the outfit.?????

  • WhoKnew

    Me too. Got nothing except I'm surprised they're still faking the funk.

  • Wreckognize Game

    He was jealous because he is a camera hog. If she keeps it up, this will end up like the Ben Affleck relationship. She dressed him up and used him as an accessory and he was over it.

  • Wreckognize Game

    He should have said I was tired of watching her

  • MJF

    On the next episode of J Lo can't keep a man; "Will They Make It To The Alter?" Tune in next episode to find out...

  • iWasteTime

    He was not uncomfortable wearing pink.
    He was upset that the attention wasn't on him at ALL times.

  • Let them eat cake

    whoo that outfit really shows jlo's age...that outfit isnt good for her it washes her out as well!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Yes Jennifer, Ben and Alex are all Leos and want to be the center of attention.
    Instead of worrying about wearing pink he needs to get a trainer so he can trip down his midsection and those broad hips.

  • Coy little wink

    I ain't got time for these fake azz hoes...

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Most Leo women are very demanding and bossy!!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • Kim’s Original Face

    I just want to know how long will this last, JLo has collected as many rings as the New York Yankees.

  • Raquel

    Hahahaha!!! Maybe her Santeria spells aren't working anymore....lol

  • iWasteTime

    She has way more rings than A Rod ... lol

  • Guest

    Lmao!

  • missmiami305

    Alex looks tired of Jlo. She is super clingy. Dude still in them streets lol. Too bad she’s in it to win it lol.

  • WhoKnew

    She is super clingy and guys definitely get tired of clinging insecurities.

  • WhoKnew

    Right. That's what he really meant.

  • MJF

    lmao

  • Topic Influencer

    Sheesh that body is on point

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    It REALLY is for a 50 year old woman!

  • Bashi22

    So are you saying a split soon come

  • Clopretty

    He talk about her as if he's over it! Seem like men date her for the thrills and once its over they move on. She like Mariah Carey... hopefully they prove us wrong and make it down that aisle. Look at his face in the pictures....

  • Shelly

    And that is what is going to break them up. He will get tired of feeling like Mr Lopez standing in the background. Latin men have to much pride for that.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Yall say what yall want about JLo but she looks absolutely gorgeous in these photos! Very classy while mostly everyone else looked like a freak show. She got one of baddest NATURAL bodies in the game.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    It's pink, but it was still a nice look. I think Mr. Lopez looked very good in his tux.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    lol cute.

  • Chicagowise

    People have misconceptions about what a 50 year old is supposed to look like. I'm 50. Not a bag, wrinkle or gray hair in sight. No gut. No love handles. No aches and pains.

    But... I don't smoke. I don't drink. I don't do drugs. I stick to a mostly plant based diet. I drink nearly a gallon of water a day. I get 8 hours of sleep EVERY night. I am in the gym Monday through Friday. On the weekend I bike and walk at least 10 miles.

    Be good to your body and it will serve you well.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    You made me tired and exhausted just by reading this. lol Good for you! I'm trying to do atleast SOME of what you do. I'm a work in progress. lol

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Chile!!!!

  • RICHIE_RICH

    If he act up JLO gone get snatched up

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Sho is

  • Chicagowise

    Straight Hispanic men have very strict rules about what is masculine and what is not. He wore pink, because Jennifer asked him to. I think it's cute that he was willing to step out of his comfort zone for her. I'm sure Jen gave him something that made it all better. ?

  • CardiB’sAbs

    That color looks good on him it compliments his skin tone. I think j lo looked nice too although underwhelming.

  • Dun Dilly

    A real one.

  • hottlanta

    Sandy your folks in London aint wasting no time talking about the new royal black baby. Dj over there showing the baby as a chimpanzé. Baby aint 2 weeks old n they r already coming out of the box.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    “Mr.Lopez” *snickers*

  • missmiami305

    Nah! Alex aint getting away that fast lol

  • missmiami305

    She hanging on Alex like she tried to hang on to Ben back in the day ???.

  • MJF

    that's why he got his butt fired from BBC! Reckless mouth, talking about it was a joke smh! See what they think about us??

  • Karen Brady

    Yeah it's weird .. people think 40, 50 .,.. is old.

  • Guest

    I am right there with you, but I do eat fish.

  • Karen Brady

    Nope. I've seen this man in a pink sweater before that matched his rosy pink cheeks.

  • Yup, I said it

    These racists cant help themselves. This PWT are stewing that the royals have black American blood. They also are mad that the Queen seems to have taken to Dora, and Megan so well. It shoots their white privilege theory straight to hell.
    Poe Pippa just don't know what to do with herself. She thought Harry was hers.

  • Chicagowise

    An effort is better than no effort at all. My situation is mostly genetic. Both of my parents are high-energy people; even now that they're in their late 70s. I wasn't made to idle. Im not going to fizzle like a handlheld sparkle. Im going to burn out like a supernova! LOL

  • Chicagowise

    I eat wild caught salmon occasionally.

  • T Willis

    Can we get a post on 50 allegedly getting T. Mari kicked off L&HH?

  • Yup, I said it

    But that's what the poor trash thinks of us because they don't have anything else of value. It hurts they feelings when they realize being white doesn't have value unless you have some money to go with it.

  • Sam

    I swear he's wearing pink lip gloss.

  • Chicagowise

    It is, if you've been abusing your body for 40 or 50 years.

  • Guest

    I love working out...and biking. I have lots of energy!

  • SpillyNillie

    He doesn't hang a suit well, regardless of color, IMO...

  • GAPeach

    I distinctly remember him wearing an all-pink suit last summer. What's the problem this time?

  • SpillyNillie

    Say it ain't so!! So how the hell he gone get his schmoney??

  • WhoKnew

    Petty penny 25 cents at it again, huh?

  • Chicagowise

    Do you know who looks good in suits? Robert Kelly. Even if he can't read the designer's label.

  • Karen Brady

    For starters!! Always.

  • Bonita

    I'm not too far behind you in age. I'm the proud owner of a slight pouch with stretch marks that I see when I take off my clothes, cause I have a child bearing stomach. But I've never smoked, drank, or done drugs either. No bags, no wrinkles, or aches and pains. Besides lots of veggies, I only eat fish, turkey, and seafood. And I get from 8 to 10 hours of sleep a day. People always think I'm in my 20's. And I aint gonna lie, I look damn good! lol

  • WhoKnew

    For sure. That picture with him puckering his lips is just how we women do after we refresh our lipstick. LOL. That bamma straight up on the lo.

  • Fire & Ice

    Lmao

  • Karen Brady

    Straight up!! LOL!

  • Wreckognize Game

    ???

  • Navybeans95

    JLo is a classic man eater...the Kardashian's..Mariah Carey ..all have the same problem....they emasculate men...

  • SpillyNillie

    So does Idris, Omari, Brad Pitt, George Clooney...

  • Chicagowise

    Good for you! It sounds like you take great care of yourself! By the way, those stretch marks were awarded for your ability to facilitate the miracle of life! They are a badge of honor! ???

  • Wreckognize Game

    Braxton women too. They are doing better now because Toni has no more coat tails to ride.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Nipsey?

  • Wreckognize Game

    I was thinking she had no storyline so they were getting rid of her. I bet she thought the fights with Fofty would keep her but he wouldn’t allow that to be played out on LHH.

  • Navybeans95

    I agree...women that can't be submissive to their men will eventually consume them or run them off...

  • Wreckognize Game

    And they fired his monkey azz

  • BythegraceofGodIcanexplain

    Lol. I can explain

  • Wreckognize Game

    Nice way to state this?? Not meaning to be submissive but to chill a little.

  • Marlika

    I got a feeling that they’ll never it down the aisle. She’s in love with the idea of being in love.

  • Li-Wright

    I subscribed to his YT channel and that man is FINE. And the routine he does to get ready to go out....I wish every man would watch it. Take some tips on how to loo FINE.

  • Marlika

    ? Sure did!!!

  • Li-Wright

    I think he looks good. Everything he wears looks good.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I made sure I said 'most' not 'all' to make sure not to include my Leo BFF Jeni. *hugs*

  • Renee26

    Amen!!

  • T Willis

    Lol I don’t know but 50 is on IG taking credit for it ? he is such a petty bish ?

  • Paula

    Alex Rodriguez, YOU LOOK MARVELOUS!!!!!!! Now I wouldn't say 1000% accessory for Ms. Lopez, maybe, 700%. Just ask Jenny From DA Block. You got it goin' on too now. In the words of Tupac and Jon B....She want you boy, she want you boy, by the way U smile.

  • T Willis

    Lol yup ?

  • T Willis

    Lol I don’t know but if he is responsible he could be thinking that he don’t want her to make any money until they she run him his $30k ?

  • the guest

    I think he was being coy and cute with the press. He so conceited and loves his ego stroked. He knows darn well that he looked absolutely adorable in the most sexist and masculine way possible.

  • GAPeach

    I do too, and the all-pink one looked great on him.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Alex stop line,it wasn't that pank jacket that yew were uncomfortable wearing....it was clingy,emotional asz needed jlo that was makin yew feel uncomfortable. That jacket was a very pale pank. No big deal...

  • WhoKnew

    Chile tell da troof.

  • hottlanta

    He black now ????

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Lolololololol e-hugs Muah!!!!!

  • hi-liter

    Sandra, you shoulda uploaded the video of JLo getting ready for the Met Gala. It’s kinda funny how JLo became annoyed with Alex because he asked her why she was wearing a wig (she had on a stocking cap like she was gonna wear one) She kinda went off on him, and told him to go somewhere and sit down and eventually told her people to get him out of there ???......

  • WhoKnew

    "the Kardashian's..Mariah Carey ..all have the same problem....they emasculate men..."
    _____________________________________________________

    That's exactly right. Women being abused by a man or men being emasculated by a woman is no different. When enough is enough they bounce leaving the abuser or emasculator wondering what they did wrong.

  • hi-liter

    This been your line today I see...??...

  • Coy little wink

    Loloolo yes boo. It's so precise...

  • Logan Roberts

    I remember I used to have the biggest crush on A-Rod back in the day. J-Hoe strikes again.

  • Wreckognize Game

    I be trying so hard to not laugh at his foolishness. He is a SAVAGE

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    He wasnt that uncomfortable! HE WORE IT! FOH!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    He wasnt that uncomfortable! HE WORE IT! FOH!

  • Yup, I said it

    I'm convinced JLo knows how to milk a prostate like a champ. She stay getting questionable men.

  • Dahl

    She looks great. All he needs is a ruffle shirt and it’s disco days all over again...

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy
  • bemetoo

    This flapper look is getting a bit boring.. many celebrities have worn this look with head piece.. Rihana Katy perry Christina Aguilera pink Madonna Kate blanchet etc

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Ms. Chicagowise, I SALUTE you! I bet you look DAYUM GOOD too ?

  • Navybeans95

  • ALLMINE?

  • MNjumpoffacliff

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    Yet he wore it...why?

  • Panther Charleston

    Hmm...maybe he thought it would be another color, not pastel pink.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Alex is Latino. They are mucho macho men who don't wear pink. Jennifer is taking him out of his comfort zone. It will backfire on her later on down the road.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    It looks really good on him. I love to see a man that's masculine enough to pull those kinds of colors off

  • Tammie Reed

    They looked haute together at the Met Gala! He is fine lawd!

  • LoneWolf1986

    His look is sharp AF! Very GQ.

  • LoneWolf1986

    He's worn pink before, as do many dudes

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Either or ?????

  • Sassie

    He actually looks very nice.

  • Panther Charleston

    Ack. Thanks, Sandy. Hey.

  • the guest

    The Kardashians are man eaters.

    Jlo is no man eater, she gets repeatedly hurt by men.

    Mariah Carey also is no maneater and is repeatedly disappointed by men with the exception of her brilliant gaming of the Packer guy she never had any intention of ever sleeping with even after marriage.

  • Navybeans95

    Their presence is bright...some women (jLo, Mariah) don't realize that any man that comes around May feel intimidated or less of a man...which either runs them off or they cheat to feel better. Some women do realize their power (the Kardashian's) and use it to get whatever they want...it's all the same to me...unfortunately women like this who what to keep their men have to dim their light or learn submissiveness...

  • blahblah94

    It feels like a very Caribbean color. Very Cuba/ Miami 1950´s or something.

  • onelove

    he looks good in any color!! he fine!!
