Jennifer Lopez Insists Dressing Up As Alex Rodriguez's Ex For Halloween 'Wasn't Weird'

J-Lo's costume choice raised a few eyebrows earlier this year.

Jennifer Lopez has insisted her 2020 Halloween costume “wasn’t weird,” no matter what anyone else thinks of it.  

The On The Floor singer spoke to Andy Cohen on Sirius XM about dressing up as Madonna — a rumoured ex-girlfriend of her fiancé, Alex Rodriguez — for Halloween this year.

In couple’s snaps posted on Instagram, J-Lo wore an outfit recalling the Queen of Pops’s Like A Virgin era, while A-Rod was also dressed as a music legend. 

She said that the pair had been planning to have a big Halloween party in October, but because of the coronavirus pandemic, they wisely postponed it.

“We had like three friends over ― four friends. And yeah, we all got dressed up like way too much,” she said, laughing. 

“My kids were hiding in the bedrooms. They were like, ‘What are you doing?’ I dressed as Madonna and Alex, he went as Bruce Springsteen.” 

“Was that not odd given that Alex maybe dated Madonna for two seconds?” the host then asked.

“No. I mean, it was so long ago, so long ago,” she said. “I don’t know. No, it wasn’t weird at all.”

Jennifer fully embraced her costume, quoting Madonna lyrics in the captions of her Instagram posts from that night. 

“Didn’t know how lost I was until I found you,” the singer captioned a photo of her posing for the camera, referencing Madge’s classic song Like A Virgin. She quoted the song again with another caption that read: “I made it through the wilderness.” 

In another photo, she used the title of Madonna’s Crazy For You song. 

A-Rod’s first wife, Cynthia Scurtis, left the baseball player over an alleged affair with Madonna, according to a 2008 People magazine report

“The embarrassment over Madonna was the last straw,” an anonymous source said at the time. Scurtis’ lawyer later added that the MLB player had an “affair of the heart” with the Material Girl.

As for Jennifer and Alex’s relationship status, the two are on solid footing — though the Hustlers star told Andy Cohen that they’ve had move their wedding celebration twice due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“I mean at our age, we’ve both been married before. It’s like, do we get married?” she explained. “Do we not? What does it mean for us? And it’s just, it comes down to like personal, like, what do you want to do? There’s definitely no rush though.”
