J Rod

Hollywood's #1 Power Couple Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez grace the cover of the December 2017 issue of Vanity Fair magazine, due on newsstands in November. Jennifer tweeted the cover photo to millions of social media users on Tuesday.

Lopez, 42, also tweeted a video montage of the various VF photo shoots in the magazine (below).

In the cover article, titled "J-Rod! Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez on Love, Beauty, and Redemption," Jennifer explained how she boldly introduced herself to Alex last year.

J Rod

She said she was having lunch in Beverly Hills last winter when she saw Rodriguez walk by. “I almost yelled out ‘Alex,’ but I am the shyest person when it comes to things like that,” she claims. She said he was still outside when she left the restaurant. He was facing away from her when she approached him. “I could literally just have walked away,” she says. “But I walk over and tap him on the shoulder and say ‘Hey.’"

She continued:

“I had just come from a promo for my show, Shades of Blue, so I’m dressed like my character, like a boy—Timberlands, jeans, curly short hair. He looks at me. I say, ‘It’s Jennifer.’ He says, ‘You look so beautiful.'"

She said their first date was an intimate dinner at the Hotel Bel Air.

“He was sitting there in his white shirt, very confident and manly, but then he was just so talkative!” she says. She tried to impress him by being a good listener.

"I just listen. So he’s talking, talking about his plans, about how he had just retired from baseball, about how he saw himself getting married again, all these things you wouldn’t normally talk about on a first date. I don’t know if he thought it was a date. I thought it was a date. Then I knew he was nervous because he asked me if I wanted a drink. I said, ‘No, I don’t drink,’ and he asked if I minded if he had one. He was nervous, and it was really cute.”

“I didn’t know if it was a date,” Rodriguez chimed in. He thought she had a man, or “Maybe we were seeing each other at night because of her work schedule. I went in uneasy, not knowing her situation.”

He added: “She told me around the third or fourth inning that she was single. I had to get up and go re-adjust my [pants]. I went to the bathroom and got enough courage to send her a text.”

Jennifer said she watched him return to the table when she received a text from him.

“So I’m sitting there and he’s walking back, and I get a text. It says…” She looks at Rodriguez for permission. “You can tell her!” he laughs.

“'You look sexy AF,’" Lopez says, recalling her beau's first text message to her.

Rodriguez remembers his last moment at bat in 2016 and the significance of that shoulder tap from Jennifer a year later.

“Baseball has a funny way of tapping you on the shoulder when you least expect it and telling you that it’s the end,” he says. “I’m thinking about one door closing and another opening, and if that first door doesn’t close, well, there isn’t that second tap.”

    Baby don’t waste ya time.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe


  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    Shadier than the shorted shade treeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee LMAO

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

  • You Could Never

    I mean someone down below pure is like you know j-lo moves fast. this bitch up top gets a pass to be on husband number FOUR damn near and Cardi cant even have her a possible husband in peace. its some bullshit. and in fact some of the same shat they said about J-Lo when she dropped is some of the same stuff folks say about Cardi. they pure from the same damn PLACE. I truly cant.

  • leapyearpisces

    They have no chemistry to me. Not to say they don't like each other, but I think its one of those we "look GOOD together" things, and they DO look good together. I used to have such a huge crush on A-Rod...but he looks different now, he still is handsome, but not as ethnic. I just wished that a lot of these black entertainers and stuff would take note at how other races / ethnic groups or whatever you want to call it "stick together" when it comes down keeping their generational wealth in THEIR community. The WEALTH that a lot of times they have acquired off of black people (as both consumers, and producers). She and DJ Khaled are case book studies of this. Anyway, nice shoot.

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    Breezy got next LOLOLOL honestly I don't know too many guys that wouldn't beat it up. Hell even a couple gay guys would find the courage and strength to fugg her if they could. They might need A-Rod as a chaser but you know what I mean!!

  • JoJoDancer

    Hollywood #1 Power couple? Really?

  • Wreckognize Game


  • Blaque Mahogany

  • Marlika

    It's called Easy assets(access)

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Her dress is cute

  • Keesh5000

    Looking good yall!!! I just want Jennifer to know that she does not have to always share all of her relationships with everyone else. Its ok to be private sometimes and she never does that. Maybe this is the reason she run thru men like Randy Moss 4th Quarter with 1 minute on the clock.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    just curious, what makes them number ONE "power couple"????????

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    i'm so over this chick and her flavors of the month, ugh!

    they're not even interesting. vanity fair pulled a people magazine with this one.... do better.

    I don't care at all...

  • XoXo

    #FakeNews! Carry on...


    It's hard getting socially invested in her relationaships being they never last long and as soon as it's over with one, she gets under another one to quick?.

  • millz

    She can't possibly be 42...
    And I think Wikipedia lying too..

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Not one bit of shade at all.... Why the blacks always gotta have shade and these so called "others" just get a nice write up? Sandra you're so petty.

  • GuestSTAR

    Looking at this reminds me of her Affleck days and you know how that turned out.

  • http://citygirlzen.blogspot.com/ missarewa


  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Y be on the cover of a magazine with someone who u not married to and when u break up??? Then what? U got that shyt to look at

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I know Jennifer is a hopeless romantic, in love with being in love kinda girl, and I hope this one works out.

    I listened to A-Rod on the Shark Tank Show and he seems to be a very good business person, along with being a past star athlete!

    Hopefully, they BOTH have worked through their relationship issues and can make this work because kids are involved! They are too public and too promotional, IMO!

    Good Luck!

  • Bashi22

    Jlo do these stunt all the time she so in love

  • http://www.mylifeinlame.com/?m=1 Kimberly

    Ohhhh, good observation. Beyonce' will be 45 in an article but JLo is just a mere 42. Smh

  • ???TheRider???

    She wanted that white acceptance so bad, but Ben's family was like "you're not messing up our lineage, let the Boricua go!" He left her ass and married the most white bread chick he could find.

  • Desiree

    Thank you cuz im sitting here counting my fingers like hold on a minute..she is the same age as one of my sisters. She looks great though..

  • https://www.facebook.com/CrysttalTHATChic?ref=hl Crysttal2u@yahoo.com


  • ???TheRider???

    A.Rod likes his women athletic like Cameron Diaz, Jordanna Brewster. JLo got too many curves and like you said, there's NO chemistry.

  • leapyearpisces

    I can roll with that because that first wife was a HARD looking woman, but athletic. I think if it wasn't for name recognition of her being Jennifer Lopez, you are right, she would not have had a chance.

  • Kimberly King

    Her dress is gorgeous.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    She did the same thing with Ben Affleck about a decade ago. She was super head over heels in love with the dude, and wanted the whole world to know....
    Then they broke up and he married somebody else.

  • Karen Brady

    So is this the real deal or really a contract? She looks nice.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Money maybe?
    Combined, their net worth is like $600 million.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    This boyfriend/girlfriend thing doesn't impress me that much. Until I see a wedding ring, I'm not convinced this is real, or going to last.
    Chances are, they'll be broken up within a year; maybe even less.

  • tintin

    I love me some j Lo but we all know this will not last she changes her men as much as she changes her sheets. This is a little far fetched. Reminds me of when bow wow and Ciara did that vibe cover thinking they were gonna be lovebirds forever

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    I think she may have finally got it right this time.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    okay, that's plausible

  • shelly

    I never thought he liked Hispanic women.

  • toni walker

    He dated Cameron Diaz who is a white Hispanic so is Jennifer.

  • shelly

    I totally forgot about Cameron . What is a white Hispanic. Jennifer parents are both 100% Puerto Rican from the Bronx. So she is 100%!puerto Rican with light skin.

  • KA

    That’s what I was thinking. Every time she goes public with a relationship like this, it doesn’t work out. She seems toxic with men like Halle - is it her or is it them?

  • Vonn

    They look good together.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I think she just makes bad choices when it comes to men.

  • Bashi22

    Hope this last until eternity please you guys cannot be dress to the ninth every day plus in Vanity magazine for this relationship not to last

  • Quitedeliteful

    I hope this relationship works. They look good together and seem really happy...

  • http://www.Samanthagwrites.com Samantha G.

    This was really cute. I want Jennifer to win in love but the way Hollywood is set up...

  • Bashi22

    DJ Khaled will never impregnate a black women just like wealthy Chinese and Indian. They think about that linage and generational wealthy

  • Li

    This looks like the real thing for Jlo. Plus, she's older.

  • leapyearpisces



    Bloop , I can’t either.

  • the guest

    Anglo Hispanic, Latino with Anglo skin, hair, and predominate Anglo features (Cameron Diaz, JLo).

  • the guest

    You're right. Ben Affleck said in an interview that his friends and family made racist comments and that he and JLo broke up because of racism. He humiliated her cancelling the wedding last minute.

    She never dated white again.

    And Ben married a white woman acceptable to his family but who he is bored with. He's not brave of heart like Matt Damon.

  • http://www.pureromance.com LA

    Good looking couple!

  • shelly

    Ok got it.

  • MythCalledLove

    Somebody do a search for a marriage license. I think they did it. Out of all the men she has dated and the women he had relationship with together they look like they were made for each other.

  • MythCalledLove

    I agree. She has come a looooong way from the mini Bonnie Clyde gun fiasco.

  • Evillene

    They're beautiful but still don't seem like a real couple to me. This was arranged by agents for publicity (i.e. Telethons, Vanity Fair covers, etc.)

  • Jussjess25

    I will never again think any relationship jlo is in, is real. ? The lady is a puertorican pass around, everybody in their mother has been with this women. Wow

  • Jussjess25

    Thank you

  • Jussjess25

    Wedding rings dont mean shit to jlo

  • pure_rachet

    I don't care for his hairline.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Oh I get it..... I'm slow tonight!

  • T3

    They look sooooooo good together.....laawd! I can look at pics of them all day. I mean, they just compliment the hell out of each other. Hope the relationship is as good as it looks. I'm rooting for them!

  • the guest

    This is the perfect comment on this relationship. And I think they would be flattered. They're not hiding they LOVE the PR machine angle of their relationship.

  • the guest


    That's colorism. It's old school Bronx hierarchy considering Boriquas whiter or above Dominicans and other Caribbean people.

    Cardi and JLo are both from the Bronx. JLo didn't strip but she definitely relationshipped her way up.

    Offset didn't put Cardi on, like Puffy put JLo on.

    Cardi, no matter how problematic her image may be, made it on her own first and then got with a famous rapper.

  • the guest

    They're definitely gonna see this through to a wedding. Even to save face, they will marry with an arrangement and prenup.

  • kennedy campbell

    lol they must have gotten that confused with Arod's age..since he was born in 75

  • the guest

    JLo's sister is more Anglo and her mother is very Anglo-centric. It was well known JLo's mother was against Puffy and it was her mother who drove JLo hard to try to marry Ben Affleck.

  • disqus_FW7pCIigCY

    Oh well this relationship will be over soon.....she loves to publicize her relationships and as soon as she starts posing for magazines with the guy...they end up breaking up soon after.

  • Michelle

    Being Puerto Rican means you're from Puerto Rico that's it. It's not a race it's a nationality. She is not 100% Puerto Rican if you want to be technical she's actually not Peurto Rican her parents are. She's American she's from NYC. She is white with Mongolian in her bloodline I'm sure prob a little bit of African but she's pretty much white. Then you have people like JuJu (Camrons GF) and she is a real Hispanic. She's actually from Cuba so she is Cuban. Spanish is her first language she had to learn English. She's a dark brown skinned black woman. Just because she's Hispanic doesn't mean she's not black. It's not a race

  • Lady_Elle

    Love the cover!
    So... why is part of A-Rod's face covered?
    Diddy or Mark would have required another pic be chosen! lol

  • Disappointed

    I like them as a couple

  • Legacy

    I feel the exact same way. Seems like the works of agents for publicity.

  • Legacy

    That's what I'm asking! Was she not embarrassed enough last time she did all this publicity for a relationship--ie: Beniffer (Ben Afflec)?? Did she not learn her lesson from all of that?

  • Legacy


  • Legacy

    LMFAO you need a timeout! Made me spit my durn lunch out!

  • anjanette b

    It's nothing better and this whole universe than a grown ass man??

  • anjanette b

    Damn I thought she was pure white. Didn't even think about the last name being Diaz.

  • anjanette b

    I keep telling people she is a white republican.. Idk for sure Sandra black. She probably Russian?????

  • anjanette b


  • anjanette b


  • anjanette b

    Ikr. It look tho?

  • Ms.Vanilla

    I've been saying the same thing. Sandra is a white male behind black face. Isn't that what they've always done?


    Me too.
