Lopez, who separated from husband Marc Anthony last July, told Lauer that the change in her personal life is "still fresh," adding that she doesn't know if she'll ever marry again. "It's not the time to think about [marriage] yet."
What is on her mind is her new show with her estranged spouse, "Q'Viva! The Chosen," which she continued to work on with Anthony following their separation.

According to TMZ, "American Idol” judge Steven Tyler might be engaged to longtime girlfriend Erin Brady.
The 63-year-old rocker and his 38-year-old lady love were photographed in Maui on Christmas, with Erin flaunting a rather large diamond solitaire. The bauble could be nothing at all, but TMZ cites sources who claim the pair are indeed engaged.
Tyler’s manager, Eric Sherman, tells CNN that he has “no comment.”

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Randy Jackson is very close to signing a deal that would have him managing Mariah Carey’s career.
Apparently Mimi and the “American Idol” judge go way back. Jackson was the vice president of A&R for Columbia Records during the 1990s, where Carey was signed from 1988 to 2001.
Plus, Randy has a long history of working closely with Mariah. He played bass for her in the studio and on the road, served as her musical director, appeared on her records and has co-written and produced tracks for the diva.

Deadline reports that a live-action movie based on the computer game “Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?” is in the works, and Jennifer Lopez may step into Carmen's globe-trotting shoes.
Sandra Bullock was once slated to don the big red hat on the big screen, but now that J. Lo’s signed on to produce, rumors are swirling that the diva will also take the lead as the elusive detective.
The plot will bring about a "cat-and-mouse" game between Carmen and her former ACME agency partner when it's suspected that Carmen has become "the world's greatest thief." The former partner takes on the role of the one who follows her clues to figure out her location. According to Deadline, they're aiming for a "National Treasure" meets "The Thomas Crown Affair" feel to the film.
In addition to the educational computer game, “Carmen Sandiego” also landed at PBS in the '90s as a geography-based game show for kids.
