"Don't buy my record because I'm Puerto Rican. " Marc Anthony sits cross-legged on the couch of an expensive hotel suite, chopping his hands into a pillow for emphasis. He's been a model of serenity, but as the conversation turns to the marketing of his much-ballyhooed English-language debut, which arrives in stores Tuesday, his body tenses. "Don't expect from me the same things you got from the others. " Anthony is busy knocking down the conventional wisdom that says his eponymous album should have come months ago, back when the Ricky Martin-Jennifer Lopez-Enrique Iglesias juggernaut peaked, staking out the covers of magazines and major face time on morning TV. He should have been at the eye of the storm - he is, after all, the most musically accomplished of the pack.

As Puerto Rican flags moved begrudgingly in dusk's humid breezes and crowds sat comfortably dressed to the nines, Marc Anthony proudly plied his trade. On Sunday, during his near-sold-out show at Camden's E-Centre, this trade meant sharing with audiences - Puerto Rican, Cuban, Spanish, African American and Anglo - the joy of the salsero, dramatic, gleeful and proud. In this age of homogenization and assimilation, Anthony, who released his first English-language record in 1999, stubbornly refuses to water himself down.

J.Lo: No pretty boys for me Good looking guys don't have a prayer with Jennifer Lopez . "I like manly. I don't like a softer edge," J.Lo, 45, tells Bravo's Andy Cohen . "I go more for essence, for strength, the manliness. " She insists her former lovers - Marc Anthony , Sean "Diddy" Combs and Casper Smart - weren't pretty. "I don't feel like good-looking is necessarily sexy. . . . I thought they were all hot. " So Ben Affleck is the exception that proves the rule?

WHY WOULD Jennifer Lopez, who dangled her Ben Affleck nuptials for months, make such an uncharacteristic mad dash to the altar? Why would Marc Anthony trek to the Dominican Republic to get a quickie divorce only to marry Lopez four days later? Can anybody say "shotgun"? Yes, word from the ceremony as reported to the New York Post's Page Six, is that Jenny from the block will soon be playing with blocks. She's preggers. The evidence is largely circumstantial but: Sources tell Page Six that Se?ora Lopez-Anthony has been wearing loose clothing, very careful not to show any cleavage.

"I'll tell you that it wasn't something sensationalistic happening," Marc tells ABC News' John Quiñones in his first big-media heart-to-heart since he and Jen announced they were divorcing after six years. The truth, the real reason, the totally truthy truth is more mundane, suburban, middle-America: The marriage wasn't working.
