NEW YORK - Saying his personal life is off-limits, singer Marc Anthony refused to confirm Tuesday whether he's married to Jennifer Lopez.

During an appearance on NBC's "Today" show, co-host Matt Lauer asked the Latin singer how he'd spent his weekend.

"I see where you're going with this, and I'm going to preface it with just saying - y'all know I don't talk about my personal life," Anthony said.

Lauer replied: "So, I - do I need to congratulate you?"

"Yeah, I have two albums coming out, man. Absolutely. And I would appreciate it," the 34-year-old singer said.

Anthony, who performed in Rockefeller Plaza, was wearing what appeared to be a wedding band on his left hand.

When Lauer continued to ask whether a wedding had taken place Saturday at Lopez's home in Beverly Hills, Calif., Anthony responded, "That would fall into the category of personal. And that's where I'm going to leave it."

Later that morning, Anthony continued to evade marriage questions from the five women on ABC's "The View."

"I've always been just so private and I've kept what's mine, mine," Anthony said.

"It's still hard for me to understand, what is to me, the morbid fascination with celebrity," he added. "I just want to sing, I want to work on my music, I want to make my movies, that's all I want to do. I understand, you know, the interest but I really don't understand the fascination with it."

Anthony said no matter what may be written about him and Lopez, he plans to "let it go. I have nothing to say about anything. My life is my life, that's the only thing I have."

Lopez's representative didn't immediately return a call Monday, but told The Associated Press on Sunday that he had no comment.

This would be the third marriage for the 33-year-old Lopez - the first was to waiter Ojani Noa in 1997, the second to Cris Judd in 2001. Noa lasted a little more than a year; Judd for nine months.

The singer-actress also was engaged to Ben Affleck, her "Gigli" co-star, but they canceled their plans in September 2003 amid a huge media frenzy and broke up in January.

Anthony divorced former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres last week in the Dominican Republic. They married in 2000 and have two young sons; Anthony also has a daughter from a previous relationship.

His new album, "Amar Sin Mentiras," means "To Love Without Lies" in Spanish.
