7 Celebrities Who Bounced Back From Bad Break-Ups With New Relationships (PHOTOS)

Big girls don’t cry.

Hollywood’s hottest ladies aren’t shedding any tears over their latest breakups. Instead, they’re happily moving onto their next relationships.

Case in point: Jennifer Lopez. The 43-year-old found love with her backup dancer, Casper Smart, 25, shortly after divorcing from Marc Anthony, 44.

Lopez and Anthony had been married for seven years, but called it quits in July, 2011. Months later, a happy Lopez was seen snuggling up to Smart while on her Dance Again world tour.

“Wide Awake” singer Katy Perry didn’t let her 2011 divorce to Russell Brand ruin her romantic spirit, either.

Perry, 26, began dating crooner John Mayer, 35, in summer of 2012 — but things didn’t officially heat up between them until October when the two spent Mayer’s 35th birthday together in New York City.

Jennifer Lopez won’t be a judge on ‘American Idol‘ in 2013, but she still thinks this year is full of “infinite possibilities.” On New Year’s Eve, she sent out a tweet that conveyed her excitement for the year and confirmed one important piece of information: She has a new album coming!

Album No. 10, which remains untitled, will be the follow-up to 2011′s ‘Love?,’ which re-established J.Lo’s rightful position among the world’s top dance-pop artists. RedOne is executive-producing the record and gave MTV the scoop about the new music.

“We already have songs that are just incredible,” he said. “It’s just amazing. It’s mixed [styles]. It’s everything about Jennifer Lopez… It’s a very special album. It feels like this album, to us, has to have everything about her, not just one thing. You’re going to have all the sides, kind of urban/hip-hop and the commercial, like the way she did with Ja Rule. It’s everything you love about her: the dance, the rhythmic, the Latin.”

J. Lo and RedOne worked together on a handful of songs on ‘Love?,’ including the lead single ‘On the Floor,’ and also teamed up for ‘Dance Again,’ the Pitbull collabo from Lopez’s most recent hits collection.

Jennifer Lopez covers the February issue of Harper’s Bazaar, and she’s a gilded goddess and a glamazon. But then again, when isn’t she?

“I’m a singer. I’m a dancer. I’m a performer. I’m an actress,” La Lopez told the fashion mag about the many hats she wears. She’s also a formerAmerican Idol‘ judge, but does it look like it bothers her that she’s been replaced? Not even a little bit! She got outta dodge before the wigs started flying.

“I make it as simple and as beautiful as I can because my life is kind of big,” the diva, 43, stated. “So I pack my luggage, or dress myself, or comb my kids’ hair, pick up their clothes — that makes our life beautiful, you know? There’s something very elegant in that.” Elegant, yes? Maternal? Yep. Just like the rest of us? 100 percent!

In the feature, her mother Guadalupe, who tutors the twins while on tour, makes an appearances and offers the funniest statement of the whole piece.

“These people were like, ‘You know J. Lo?’” she said.”I made J. Lo!”

Their relationship is close. “Last night I was so tired, and having to do a concert was daunting, you know?” Lopez says. “But Mom just said, ‘Close your eyes,’ and she held my hand the entire way over.”

Big Apple Bash: Best New Year’s Eve Moments in Times Square (PHOTOS)

Just picture it: Bright lights, the hottest celebrities, rousing musical numbers, a sea of partygoers, and, of course, that big, sparkly ball. There’s no doubt that New York City has become the mecca of merriment for New Year’s festivities.

Year after year, Hollywood’s biggest names gather in the heart of Times Square to take part in the year-end revelry — that always provides for a multitude of memorable TV moments — which have viewers turning up the volume (or, in some instances, switching the channel).

Remember when Lady Gaga shared a smooch with New York’s mayor, Michael Bloomberg, after ringing in 2012? Or when sexy Jennifer Lopez turned heads in nothing but a bedazzled bodysuit as she said hello to 2010.

Prior to making headlines for all the wrong reasons, Lindsay Lohan hit a high note in 2004, performing her song “Rumors.”

And who could forget Taylor Swift joining ex-beau Joe Jonas (and his brothers Kevin and Nick) on stage in 2008 — just months after their break-up. Awkward!

Speaking of TSwift, the “Red” singer returns for another NYE performance as she headlines ABC’s New Year’s Rockin Eve special hosted by Ryan Seacrest on Dec. 31. Also joining the star-studded lineup are Carly Rae Jepsen and Neon Trees in NYC, while Brandy, Flo Rida, Karmin, One Republic, and Pitbull will hit the stage in Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, Jersey Shore‘s Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jenni “JWoww” Farley will ring in 2013 with Ke$ha, Ne-Yo and Rita Ora for MTV’s Club NYE 2013.

What’s been your favorite NYE moment ever? Sound off in the comments!

Jennifer Lopez’s $20 Million Extortion Lawsuit Dismissed by Judge

J. Lo is probably saying “uh oh.” Jennifer Lopez, who always seems to be involved in some sort of a lawsuit or trouble with the help, just got one of her own dismissed.

Lopez was involved with legal drama with a former driver, Hakob Manoukian. Initially, Manoukian sued Lopez after he was fired from carting her around. He claimed that Lopez’s manager, Benny Medina, berated him in public and pretty much forced his resignation.

In response, La Lopez countersued Manoukian, claiming that he was trying to control her entire security detail and was “drunk with power.” When Lopez pretty much sent Manoukian packing, she says he threatened to leak confidential information about the star to the public and have criminal charges filed against her. Say what?! What’s more, Lopez claimed that Manoukian demanded $2.8 million in hush money. For her troubles, J to the L-O sued for the not-so-low amount of $20 million.

Now, a judge is basically calling BS on Lopez’s extortion suit, per TMZ. Manoukian’s attorney filed a motion to dismiss Lopez’s extortion claim, saying that Lopez was pretty much just trying to punish Manoukian for filing a legitimate claim against her. The judge concurred with Manoukian’s legal team and put the kibosh on her lawsuit. Manoukian’s own original lawsuit is still pending.

Bounty Hunter Sues Al Roker + Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez has come under fire for some of her choices in investments and endorsements (hey, Fiat!), but this may be the first time the business savvy star has actually gotten sued over them. La Lopez and none other than NBC weatherman Al Roker are being sued … by a bounty hunter!

TMZ reports that Roker and Lopez are the subjects of a lawsuit because of their association with the Spike TV series ‘Big Easy Justice.’ Roker and Lopez are producers of the series, which follows a New Orleans bounty hunter named Tat-2. A 19-year-old man named Everette Draughn filed his lawsuit against Lopez and Roker in Louisiana, where the show is filmed, claiming that the show falsely dubbed him as a suspect in a grand theft auto case.

Draughn says at the time of the filming, he hadn’t committed grand theft auto (though who knows what’s happened since then) and that he’s not a fugitive like the show says. Draughn also says that he was coerced — via force — to sign the release agreement allowing himself to be shown on television. The episode reportedly caused Draughn not only injuries and a marred reputation, but also to lose his job. Yikes!

Draughn’s suing for unspecified damages. Neither Spike TV, Roker nor Lopez would comment on the pending litigation.

Did Jennifer Lopez Have a Wardrobe Malfunction With White Leather Pants?

Oh, J. Lo. You ruined a perfectly good pair of white leather pants, which are of course the most practical thing in the world when you are a Latin diva with a faboo wardrobe and a bank account to match.

It looks like Jennifer Lopez needs to be a little more careful with her coffee. The singer had a bit of a wardrobe malfunction – but not the fun kind, like where boobies show or nipples are slipped — while dressed in all white at her media call Down Under in Australia on Tuesday, Dec. 11.

Her sexy leather ensemble was quickly taken down a stylistic notch, since she had three circular brown stains on the front of her pants. Looks like she spilled her java and right on her crotch, no less. There was no hiding those stains, and it’s not like she could pull out one of those Tide pens and erase the offending marks.

Didn’t she learn you have to be careful when wearing white?

The rest of Lopez’s outfit was banging, though! We love the long-sleeved top, and she wore a pretty pair of lace-covered Valentino pumps. Let’s hope she didn’t step on gum or snap one of those heels and ruin the shoes like she did the pants.

Naomi Watts, Jennifer Lopez and Reese Witherspoon: Hottest Star Sightings of the Day (PHOTOS)

Today’s edition of Celeb Snaps is all about the ladies.

Whether it’s gals who lunch or rock their world tours, Hollywood’s hottest starlets are running things around the world.

Naomi Watts was drop dead gorgeous at the Los Angeles premiere for her new flick, The Impossible, on Monday evening.

Watts told Celebuzz that Princess Diana would be “overjoyed” by Kate Middleton’s pregnancy. The 44-year-old Australian actress plays the late Princess in an upcoming film, Diana.

“The media is very different now then it was back then,” Watts said, referring to Lady Di’s tragic death in 1997 after her car lost control during a high-speed paparazzi chase in Paris.

However, Watts isn’t the only leading lady enjoying her time behind the flashbulbs.

Jennifer Lopez was rocking the house during her Melbourne, Australia leg of her Dance Again worldwide tour. The mother-of-two donned a sequined bodysuit, which hugged all her killer curves as she took the stage.

Back in sunny Los Angeles, Reese Witherspoon was seen strolling the streets of Beverly Hills after a luncheon with girlfriends. The Walk the Line star looked slim as she flaunted her post-baby in a little black dress and matching handbag.

How great do you think Witherspoon looks after having her son three months ago? Take a closer look in the gallery, above.

Kanye West, Pink, Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart: Hottest Star Sightings of the Day (PHOTOS)

Kanye West showed off his pearly whites on Thursday, when he was spotted arriving at Los Angeles International airport.

The 35-year-old rapper has a very good reason to smile. Just the night before, West received six Grammy Award nominations, including Best Short Form Music Video for his epic spectacle, “No Church in the Wild.”

Over in London, Pink rocked a black beanie and pink scarf as she headed out for a day of errands. The singer also received a Grammy nomination: Best Pop Vocal Album for The Truth About Love, which was just released in September.

Meanwhile, Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart were spotted taking in the sights and sounds of Perth, Australia on Thursday. Lopez is scheduled to kick off the Australian leg of her Dance Again World Tour in Perth, followed by shows in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.


Back in Los Angeles, Sandra Bullock reunited with her adorable son Louis as he finished another day of school. Bullock kept things casual in a leather jacket, grey t-shirt and matching beanie while her 2-year-old sported a flannel shirt and jeans.

Did Jennifer Lopez + Casper Smart Go Engagement Ring Shopping?

Ethan Miller, Getty Images

Jennifer Lopez and her boy toy, dancer Casper Smart, did some newsworthy shopping in Perth, Australia today (Dec. 6) and no, we’re not talking about the items they picked up at Gucci and Louis Vuitton boutiques.

The couple, who got together after Lopez split with hubby and baby daddy Marc Anthony, hit Tiffany & Co., where they were reportedly browsing diamond rings.

Of course that sparked rumors of “They’re shopping for engagement rings.” Whenever a lovey dovey duo takes a gander at sparklers, commitment talks arise. It’s not outlandish to assume that they were looking at jewelry for that reason. But don’t be fooled by the rocks that she was looking at. Lopez and Smart could have merely been perusing rings for holiday present ideas for one another or for members of their family.

Lopez has been married three times so she may not be ready to rush into marriage just yet, even though Smart is quite a catch who seems to make her very happy. She also had a failed engagement to Ben Affleck, resulting in the Bennifer spectacle. Maybe she wants to enjoy her time with her young hunk before making it a more permanent commitment.

She’s J. Lo. She can do whatever she wants.
