Jennifer Lopez didn’t admit to dating Drake, despite Ellen’s best efforts to get J.Lo to admit that she and the rapper were a pair.

Ellen asked who J. Lo spent Valentine’s Night with (after her residency performance in Vegas). J. Lo answered pretty coy that she spent the night on stage. When asked if she spent the night with Drake, Lopez said that Drake was on tour right now.

The two have never admitted to dating and they have always said they were just “working on a song.” J. Lo revealed that they definitely did work on a song together, but it isn’t clear when (or if) that song will be released. She did not confirm nor denied that they were dating.

So does J. Lo have a thing for “younger men?” The answer: it’s not about age, the 47-year-old singer told Ellen on Tuesday's show. 

“I don’t date younger men. It’s not like you have to be younger. It’s not about that,” she told Ellen. “It’s about the person. It’s about who they are. It has nothing to do with age.”

J. Lo also responded to rumors that she may be performing at the Super Bowl next year and if American Idol could be returning. J. Lo didn't have much information on either rumor at this point. She hasn't officially heard anything about those opportunities.
