J-Lo Marries, Again

Somehow, this event has been overshadowed by the celebration of the men of D-Day and the death of one of the most influential leaders in world history:

CNN Entertainment — J-Lo dances down aisle

Actress-singer Jennifer Lopez has married her current boyfriend, salsa singer Marc Anthony, barely five months after breaking her much-publicized engagement to actor Ben Affleck, Us Weekly reported Saturday.

The magazine said Lopez, 33, married Latin music star Anthony, 34, at her home in Los Angeles Saturday in front of about 40 guests. Us Weekly said it had pictures of a giant tent assembled on the estate and of guests coming and going among tables covered in white table cloths and flower centerpieces.

“It was a lovely low-key intimate affair for the closest friends and family, ” Us reported a friend as saying.

“She didn’t hardly tell anyone. Everyone was surprised,” another unidentified friend told the magazine.

It’s not a good sign when someone’s marriage partner is referred to as their “current boyfriend.”

Update: Dan Drezner offers a contrarian view, noting that, “By celebrity standards, Miss Lopez seems to have her head screwed on reasonably straight.” Comparing J-Lo to the likes of Paris Hilton and Janet Jackson, she’s positively wholesome. Plus, he provides a photo (and links to other photos) to remind us that she’s a good looking woman–if not quite Salma Hayek.
