Lopez Huffs Out

Jennifer Lopez was a double winner at Sunday's fifth annual American Latino Media Arts (ALMA) awards, which does what it says: honors Latinos in the arts and media. ABC will air the show June 17. Lopez was named female entertainer of the year and winner of a music video award. "I always looked at being Latin as a plus," she said after receiving her award. "The best thing about the culture is family." Asked by reporters whether she and Sean "Puffy" Combs might start a family by getting married, Lopez replied, "They're my feelings!" -- and stormed out of the pressroom, reports USA Today. Ricky Martin and Cameron Diaz (who was a no-show) were among the other winners. Best actor ("The 13th Warrior") and best director ("Crazy in Alabama") Antonio Banderas said of the ALMA statuette, "It's like the Oscars, but it has boobies."
