Jennifer Lopez is a woman in charge; but there is one guy who can influence the diva. Not hubby Marc Anthony – but Ryan Seacrest! The American Idol host has persuaded J.Lo to perform live in Times Square tonight. New Year’s Rockin’ Eve producer Larry Klein dishes on how it all went down. “Jennifer was onstage in rehearsals at the AMAs and her manager Benny Medina was sitting next to me, and I said, ‘Right now I’m looking at Times Square, New Year’s Eve. You’ve got to join us that night,'” he says.
But it was really Ryan Seacrest who sealed the deal. “It started there [at the AMAs], and then, no kidding, Marc and Jennifer came over to my house and literally walked through what it would be like in Times Square, and now we’ve got a stage built here [in that spot in my house]. That’s exactly what happened,” explained Ryan. “It’s a small house! You can put that in there,” joked the host.
