"I don't date younger men," Lopez explained. "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 got out with them.

Miguel and I approached the label about releasing it and everyone was on-board." Listenhere.
Last week Kesha filed a motion containing an email exchange between Dr. Luke and Kesha's manager Monica Cornia which painted the producer as insensitive to the singer's concerns about her weight.
In that exchange, Corina tells Luke that Kesha was in tears over his comments regarding her breaking a juice cleanse.
