Jennifer Lopez isn't bothered by age when it comes to dating.

The 'Ain't Your Mama' hitmaker has made a name for herself as being somewhat of a cougar but she's adamant she doesn't take notice of how long her potential partners have been walking this earth when she agrees to date someone as she relies solely on their spiritual connection and how well they get on.

Speaking on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' on Monday February 20, she said: "First of all, stop! I don't date younger men. I don't think men have to be younger. It's not about that. I just meet people, and if I go out with them, I go out with them. And if I like them, I like them, and if I don't, I don't. It's about the person, you know what I mean? It's about who they are. It has nothing to do with age!

"There's this thing, because I dated Beau [her backing dancer Casper Smart], and he was younger, and he was the first guy I ever dated who was younger than me, but then I got labelled right away. For me, it isn't [about age]. If they're older, they're older. If they're younger, they're younger. It depends on whether or not I'm attracted to their spirit, their soul, their whatever... their energy."
The 47-year-old singer was rumoured to be dating rapper Drake, 30, earlier this year but, despite numerous pictures of them cuddling up to each other being posted online, she refused to divulge whether they were in a relationship.
She said: "We did a song together. We were not writing a song right at that moment. We were just hanging out. Actually he sent me a song that he wanted me to be on, and then I got on the song, and yeah, we have a song together."
Jennifer has eight-year-old twins Max and Emme with ex-husband Marc Anthony.
