Whom did Jennifer Lopez choose?

During the game segment on The Ellen Show, DeGeneres can be heard saying, "She says she's single at the moment. She’s too busy and doesn't have time for first dates and stuff, so we're going to find a man for her in a game we call ‘Who'd you rather?’” And with that, she showed two pictures, Zac Efron and Harry Styles. Even though JLo was a bit skeptical about the game but later started to enjoy it.


Jennifer Lopez said, "It's funny because I could do either. This is actually a very hard decision." But after giving some thought to it, she declared, "Probably a couple of years ago I would have said Zac Efron, but today I'm going to say Harry Styles." As the game progressed, Jennifer Lopez was shown more pictures of singers, and A-listed personalities, including Brad Pitt, Prince Harry, and more but she stayed loyal to her first choice, Harry Styles.

However, with time, she only chanted Harry’s name until Jeff Kravitz made an appearance on the screen. Then she jumped from Kravitz to Leonardo Di-Caprio to finally resting her choice on Bradley Cooper. But, at the end of the game, both Ellen and Jennifer Lopez returned to their first choice, Harry Styles, and settled the crush situation. Ellen declared, "So Harry is your boyfriend." To which, JLo can be heard saying, "He's a little bit young for me.”


What is One Direction?

One Direction is a band that was initially formed with five members - Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, and Louis Tomlinson. They came up with some biggest hit singles and albums and the boy band has a huge fanbase across the world. However, after Zayn left the band in 2015 to make his career as a solo artist, the rest of the four members continued their work as a band together. But soon, they went on a long hiatus and still now the band has not made a comeback.

Well, let us know what are your thoughts about Jennifer Lopez’s choice of crush.
