Jennifer Lopez says she doesn't consider her first two marriages to be the real deal because they lasted less than a year.

The 49-year-old singer was married to Cuban actor Ojani for just for just nine months, and second husband Cris, a choreographer for 11 months, and admits she would like to walk down the aisle to her current fiancé, Alex Rodriguez, in a church.

Speaking in a behind-the-scenes YouTube video for her It's My Party Tour, Lopez said: ''I'd like a big wedding and I'd like to get married in a church this time.

''I've never been married in a church and I've been married three times, and once was nine months and once was 11 months, so I don't really count those. 'But I was married to Marc [Anthony] for 10 years, with the kids.''

The Second Act actress admitted that while it can feel ''very lonely'' being single, that is no reason to want to get married.

She added: ''I was very young the first two times I tried to get married. I'm saying 'try' to get married.

''It seems like in this life, you're always surrounded by people - you're never lonely. But it's very lonely.''

She continued: ''So you always want somebody with you, somebody.

''So, I felt like if I got married, I felt like I would always have somebody. But that's not how life works. That's not how it goes.

''It's a bad reason to get married. Not the right one. The wrong one. The right one is when you find somebody who really makes you better.''

Singer and record producer Ne-Yo recently said his Lopez is ''over the moon'' following her engagement to Rodriguez.
