Jennifer Lopez tells Ellen Degeneres tomorrow on her show (via People magazine) that she has a bruised bone following a televised slip during her performance on November 23’s American Music Awards.

“What happened was one of the dancers’ backs was slippery from sweat and lights and everything. We never bargained for that because they always had T-shirts on in rehearsal.

“So they were barebacked, didn’t have shirts on for the performance, and when I stepped on their backs my feet got wet. So when I landed, it just slipped from under me.”
