Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony have been invited by U.S. president Barack Obama to watch Super Bowl with him. Sharing a close relationship with Obama, the celebrity couple are welcomed to the White House in Washington, D.C. to watch the NFL championship with him.
"I can't believe it!" J.Lo told Extra at the launch of Gillette's Venus Goddess Fund for Education. "I don't know, maybe that's why I don't want to talk about it. I don't even feel like its real!" Talking about the upcoming battle, she said, "That [Ben] Roethlisberger, he's a good quarterback!"
Ben plays for the Pittsburgh Steelers. His team is going to face off the Green Bay Packers when the Super Bowl kicks off on February 6. Taking place at Cowboys Stadium in North Texas, it will also see performances from Lea Michele, Christina Aguilera and Black Eyed Peas.
The "Glee" star is going to sing "America the Beautiful", the "Burlesque" actress will perform the National Anthem, and the Hip-Hop group are going to take the stage during the halftime show. Maroon 5 are also announced as a musical guest during the pre-game festivities, singing "Never Gonna Leave This Bed".
J.Lo and Marc met Obama and the First Lady Michelle at the Oval Office in 2009 during Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute's annual awards gala where Marc was among the honorees. Later that evening, Obama led a group of people to sing "Happy Birthday" for Marc who previously performed at his presidential inaugural ball.
