Alex Rodriguez says Mitt Romney was most interesting at Met Gala


Alex Rodriguez says the most interesting person he met at the Met Gala — in a crowd from Rihanna to his ex Madonna — was Mitt Romney.

“Believe it or not, I actually enjoyed meeting Mitt Romney and his wife,” A-Rod told sports columnist Jason Gay at the Wall Street Journal’s Future of Everything Festival.

But A-Rod joked that at the gala he was a glorified plus-one of date Jennifer Lopez, and her “Uber driver slash security . . . Every time I go anywhere with Jennifer, they’re literally like, ‘Can you get out of the way? We want a picture.’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’ll take it for you.’ ”

He said of Anna Wintour’s fashion Super Bowl: “It was fun. It’s one of those things that I’m not really crazy about . . . But it’s actually fun to people watch. And there were some unbelievable, unbelievably crazy outfits.”

Rodriguez was on a panel with Fanatics mogul and 76ers minority owner Michael Rubin.

Before the Q&A, sources spotted Rodriguez at lunch with Lopez and former Goldman Sachs honcho and Trump adviser Gary Cohn at a Dos Caminos.

Jennifer Lopez jokes there’s ‘no pressure’ for Alex Rodriguez to propose.

If you like it, then you should put a ring on it, Alex Rodriguez.


During an appearance Wednesday on “The Tonight Show,” Jennifer Lopez discussed the meaning behind her new single, “El Anillo” (“The Ring”), rumored to be about her relationship with the Yankees slugger. The thrice-married beauty explained how the message is about women who are ready for the rock.

“The song is definitely about that, it is but I felt like it was kind of something that all women get to a point where they say, ‘OK, what’s up?’” said Lopez, 48. “Like we’re good, everything’s great, what’s going on? Am I staying or am I [going]?”

Before Lopez explained the tune, host Jimmy Fallonheld up a photo of the couple from Monday’s Met Gala, with a special message for Rodriguez, 42.

“Alex, are you watching? Hello,” Fallon joked, to which Lopez replied, “No pressure.”

Together since last spring, Lopez hasn’t ruled out a fourth trip down the aisle, despite failed marriages to Ojani Noa, Cris Judd and Marc Anthony.

“I would love to grow old with somebody in a committed relationship. But I’m not forcing anything right now,” the mother of two revealed in the April 2018 issue of Harper’s Bazaar. “It’s good, it’s healthy; we communicate well. We understand each other’s lives in a way that most other people couldn’t.”

Lopez also revealed Rodriguez, the face of ESPN’s “Sunday Night Baseball,” regularly sprinkles America’s pastime into their daily exchanges.

“It is baseball day and night, night and day,” she said. “I’m like, ‘Baby, what time you think you’re going to be home?’ He goes, ‘Well, right now I’m kind of in the seventh inning of the meeting.’ He’s like, ‘Keep your head in the game!’”
