J. Lo chapel-bound?

Perhaps singer-actress Jennifer Lopez will be doing a cover of the '60s ditty "Chapel of Love"--for her own wedding.

Tabloids, including the New York Post and Britain's The Sun, are reporting that Lopez's dancer boyfriend Cris Judd asked the actress to marry him at a barbecue in Los Angeles.

Lopez's publicist could not confirm this, according to ABCNews.com. "We don't comment on her private life," said Alan Nierob, who added he does not know if she is in fact engaged.

And in fact, The Post pointed out its sources were not sure if the happy couple is headed for the altar.

"Jennifer is working a lot, and she is happier than she's ever been in her life," the unidentified source told the paper. "But I doubt they will actually get married."

Of course, J.Lo's more famous paramour was Sean "Puffy" Combs, with whom she split last year. Combs has said that he and Lopez are like Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner, a couple known for their passionate on-again-off-again relationship, and that he and Lopez will always be connected to one another, even if they are not together.

Madonna naked?

Not really a hard thing to imagine. But where she is appearing naked might be.

A pharmaceutical company in Europe has brought the rights to use nude photos of Madonna on its safe-sex products, New York magazine reported. That's right. Condoms.

Already selling like crazy in Europe and Japan, about 50,000 of the condoms are making their way to the United States and recently sold for about $11.95 at Condomania in New York City's Greenwich Village.

The photos were taken by photographer Martin Schreiber in 1979 when Madonna was struggling as an artist and needed to make a quick buck. The nudie shots were first sold to Playboy in 1985 when Madonna's career skyrocketed. At that time, the singer did not have a problem with the pictures being in the magazine.

However, she is reportedly furious that Schreiber has licensed the shots for the condoms. "They're an unauthorized product, and we're considering legal action. They're not official," a rep for Madonna's U.S. licenser told New York magazine. The rep added that legal steps might be taken to keep the product off the shelves.
