Late last month, Jennifer Lopez performed at the Mawazine World Rhythms International Music Festival in Morocco, and everyone seemed to enjoy the performance. Well, not everyone, actually – apparently the concert was a little TOO sexy for some people’s tastes and now she’s being sued for it.
J.Lo performed in the north African nation on May 29, and it was broadcast on public TV. The concert featured all the hallmarks of what we’d call a typical J.Lo show — sexy dancing, skimpy outfits, appropriate emphasis on her ass … and her dancers’ asses.
Problem is … according to this lawsuit, all those things have no business airing on Moroccan TV. The suit was filed by an education group which says Ms. Lopez “disturbed public order and tarnished women’s honor and respect.”
Jennifer and the promoter are being sued. In the unlikely event she’s found guilty, she faces 1 month to 2 years in prison.
We’re told J.Lo has performed in Morocco in the past without any issues — but she’s never been on TV before. But seriously, what were they expecting?
Obviously this lawsuit won’t hold much weight, especially considering Jennifer’s not even in Morocco anymore and no one is getting extradited over some prudish ladies’ complaints. Some people will find any reason to complain (particularly in a litigious way). Here’s a suggestion: Don’t like JLo? Don’t watch her perform.
