I love Jennifer Lopez and think she’s pretty flawless, generally speaking, even if she is a raging ghetto biatch. In fact, I think that’s one of the main reasons I love her. However, there are just some things I cannot abide, and her new single, ‘I Luh Ya Papi’ (yes, I’m typing that correctly), is one of them.
Sure, we’ve heard ‘Girls’ and ‘Same Girl’ (real creative titles there, JLo), but those were just promotional releases. THIS is the song she is allowing to represent her as the first single from her upcoming album, which will be released later this year.
In addition to the horrendous title, the lyrics don’t fare much better. JLo sings about how she loves her man so much, she’ll give it to him right there in the car. Now there’s romance! On the other hand, she does insist that her man engages her mind before her body – but once he gets to her body, he will need “4 or 5 beds” because what she’s got to offer is that good. I just… LOL. Okay.
That being said, it’s REALLY catchy from the second listen on. God help me.

I’m not really sure to make of ‘Adrenalina’, the new single by Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin and Wisin. I’ll admit my ignorance in saying that I’ve never heard of Wisin, but given that this song is done entirely in Spanish, I’m assuming he’s a big hit in the Latino music world.
The song isn’t all that bad, really. There’s nothing special about it, and sort of makes me feel like I should be clubbing in Mexico City or something, even though I’ve never been clubbing (seriously – no interest) and I’ve also never been to Mexico City. Basically, I’m entirely out of my element here, though I do speak Spanish, so I guess that’s something.
I’m sure JLo’s fans will be happy to see her singing in Spanish again (and looking hot, to boot), and Ricky Martin fans (he has those, right?) will be happy to see him doing anything at all. I kid!
The biggest problem is the close dancing with Ricky and Jennifer. Just make that shit stop IMMEDIATELY.

Jennifer Lopez is headed to scripted television! The American Idol judge has been tapped to star in a brand new cop drama from NBC.
Shades of Blue has been given a straight-to-series order, to include 13 episodes, according to Entertainment Weekly.
The show will star Lopez as “Harlee McCord,” a detective recruited to work undercover for the FBI’s anti-corruption task force. Oh, and she also happens to be a single mother.
Ryan Seacrest will executive produce the series [...].
Of course Seacrest is going to produce. He and JLO are SO BFF. And Seacrest will never turn down the opportunity to make more of that sweet TV money.
Can we be real though? Does this show sound even vaguely interesting? To be it sounds like it’s all been done before and I don’t know if NBC can handle Lopez’s ego.
Will you be watching?

Oh, man. So Rosie Perez and Jennifer Lopez met back in 1991 while auditioning as Fly Girls on In Living Color, and apparently things went downhill between them pretty quickly. Want to know the details? Sure, Rosie has all of them in her new book, Handbook For an Unpredictable Life. Apparently Rosie, who was a choreographer at the time, says she convinced the show’s creator Keenan Ivory Wayans to hire Jennifer even though he didn’t want to – so long as she promised to lose 20 lbs and cut her hair. Apparently he thought she was “corny and chubby”.
That’s not so hard to believe, I suppose (this is Hollywood, we’re talking about), but Rosie says that when Jennifer got the job, she completely changed her personality and went “ghetto biatch” on everyone, creating a rift that’s lasted until the present day between the two women.
Here’s some of the scoop from The New York Post:
“All of the girls were coming into my office complaining how she was manipulating wardrobe, makeup, and me, all to her advantage,” Perez writes. Lopez, now 44, shrugged it off, saying the other girls were just “jealous.”
But Lopez dropped her “sweet-girl act” and “went off” on Perez like “some ghetto biatch, screaming and pounding her chest!” writes Perez.
“You pick on me, me and only me, every f–king day! Every f–king day! I work my ass off, deliver and you keep pushing me aside, treating me like sh-t! I know I’m good! I’m better than any of these girls, and you know it,” Lopez roared.
J.Lo left the show after two seasons but didn’t drop her beef — Perez says she made “disparaging comments” about her after hitting it big in Hollywood.
“I was blindsided,” writes Perez. “I’d thought we were cool. I called her up. She wouldn’t pick up. Frustrated, I left her an irate message on her answering machine. Instead of calling me back and hashing it out like friends do, she went on a major talk show and reiterated my lashing,” Perez writes.
Apparently they ran into each other at a club sometime after and Jennifer acted like nothing had ever happened, but Rosie had to “kill her” with her “biting tongue”, though she didn’t elaborate on what in all that entailed.
I dunno, I’m kind of torn here. Whether or not any of what Rosie’s saying here is true, what’s the point? You’re bringing up a feud that’s nearly 25 years old and doing the same thing that you were slamming Jennifer for – discussing shit in public. The cattiness is just ridiculous – and yes, if Jennifer’s behaviour was true, I think that’s just as bad. Hollywood is hard, especially for women. Especially for women of colour. Let’s not make shit worse.

Marc Anthony must have got an advance copy of ex-wife Jennifer Lopez‘s upcoming memoir, True Love, in which she says she still loves him, because just as soon as that news linked, suddenly he and his girlfriend of a year, Chloe Green, are dunzo.
Chloe is the 22-year-old heiress to Top Shop (and former The Only Way Is Essex cast member) and Marc is 45, so age may or may not have had to do with things here. I personally like ‘em a little older myself, but then again, it’s Marc Anthony, and at no age is he acceptable. (I kid! But not really.)
Here’s what “a source” (i.e. an intern) told US Weekly:
“They are taking a break,” an insider tells Us of the split. “It is because of busy schedules.”
LOL, “busy schedules”, I’m sure. So what’s the deal here? Did it really just fizzle out? Is Marc holding out for some JLo love? Does anyone care? These are the big questions of the day.

Cover your ears, baby Casper, cos Mama Jennifer is going to say something you won’t like, which is that she still loves Marc Anthony. Does she go to bed every night dreaming of his smooth Latin dance moves and his extremely rat-like face? Not likely, but they do have two kids together and their split was amicable, so of course it makes sense that they will always love each other, just not romantically.
Apparently she’ll talk about their marriage in her upcoming book, True Love, but in the meantime, here’s what she told Glamour:
“I do. I love him as the father of my children and as my friend. That doesn’t mean that we were meant to be in a marriage forever though.
“He knows he’s in [the book] and he’s very curious, but he’s a big supporter of mine. He’s my biggest fan and I’m his.”
Well, that’s great – and I’m sure it’s great for their kids, too. Nothing worse than two parents who have split up but are still at each other’s throats/being awful to each other. That’s the mature, adult way to handle it.
I like Jennifer Lopez. She’s a hot mess and clearly has some shit to work through, but I think she’s got a solid head on her shoulders and has worked damn hard to be where she is, so I’m a “fan” – and by fan I mean I don’t hate her.
