To which, the On The Floor singer aptly replied, "OK, first of all, stop. I don't date younger men," Lopez, 47, argued with host Ellen. "It's not like you have to be younger, it's not about that. I just meet people and if I go out with them, I go out with them, and if I like them, I like them and if I don't, I don't. It's just about the person. It’s about who they are, it has nothing to do with age." she said.

"I dated Casper Smart and he was younger and that was the first guy I ever dated younger than me and then I got labeled right away," she continued.

"If they’re older, they’re older. If they’re younger, they’re younger. It doesn’t matter. It’s whether or not I’m attracted to them or not, attracted to their spirit, their soul, whatever their energy is." the Dance Again singer concluded.
