Good ole Jennifer Lopez. Despite her terrible decision to return to American Idol, I actually kinda like her – especially musically. She comes out with some serious pop “jamz”, if you will, so I’m always interested to see what she does, even if it’s not something I will buy or listen to at any other time than when it comes on the radio.
Her new single is called ‘Same Girl’ and there’s even a video to go with it! The song is from her upcoming TENTH studio album, and the only bad thing about it is that it was co-produced by Chris Brown (FUCK OFF) and Cory Rooney. She went back to the Bronx to make the video – you know, Jenny from the Block and all that – so yeah, I’m into it.
Here’s what she said about the clip:
“This was probably the craziest thing I’ve done in my career of music and movies. I like just being able to do things spontaneously, and not have everything so planned out.”
I mean, I don’t see anything “crazy” here, but your mileage may vary, I suppose.

Check out what some celebs were wearing this week and then make your picks for who looked the BEST, WORST, and most WTF.
Which celeb ripped off Sharon Stone‘s 1998 Oscars look? Which celeb ripped off another author’s book cover? And which celeb probably ripped off their dress at the end of the night and thought, “WTF was I thinking?”
Let’s get to it, babies!

How do I put this gently? American Idol sucks ass. It has for years and it continues to get worse. Last year, even with Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey on the panel, the show was boring, uncomfortable and deserved to be canceled. Fox hoped that by bringing back Jennifer Lopez for this season, they can pick up in the ratings again, but seriously, people – just let this shit die already. Oh yeah, Harry Connick Jr.‘s on it, too.
Well, the troll that guards the Idol bridge, Ryan Seacrest, really wants you to give the show another shot to, I dunno, be good?
From The Hollywood Reporter:
“I will say this to those who have watched the show throughout the years and maybe they didn’t watch last year. I ask them to come back and give it another shot this year,” Seacrest told The Hollywood Reporter Friday on the red carpet at the Z100 Jingle Ball 2013 concert at Madison Square Garden. “The judges are so fun, and they are having such a good time and they get along with each other so well that I think you will see your old American Idol back on the air.”
Well… no, I don’t think so. Even X Factor is shit. I think people are just tired of seeing the same old crap on TV all the time. It’s a fixed “competition” wherein the producers decide pretty early on who they want to win. They give the public the illusion of “voting” for their favourites, but we all know if an unpopular contestant – one that they deem unworthy – came out on top, those votes would be fixed. They prey on people with sob stories and it’s all just a mess. Idol has been on for like, 10 years now. It’s done. Say goodbye. Bow out with some small amount of grace.
That being said, I’ll be watching in January… but not because I enjoy it, because I have to live blog it for another job. It’s the bane of my existence.

Jennifer Lopez has 5-year-old twins, Emme and Max, with ex-husband and professional troll Marc Anthony, and apparently she’s so good at parenting, she deserves an award. For that reason, she’s getting the Grace Kelly Award from March of Dimes for being a positive role model for women and her dedication to being a good mother. Huh, go figure.
She’ll pick up the award at the March of Dimes luncheon at the Beverly Hills Hotel today, so that’s nice. To be honest, I didn’t know Jennifer Lopez was involved with the organization, but it’s a good one. Here’s her rather short statement on the honour:
“As a mother myself, I am aware of the importance of healthful pregnancies and babies.”
Right, of course. What else do you need to know? Last year, Reese Witherspoon got the award, so take that as you will. (For the record, I actually like J.Lo and have no idea about her kids/personal life/parenting skills, so I’m neutral on this one.)

Jennifer Lopez defended her body in the latest issue of Cosmopolitan for Latinas and I’m just wondering, ugh, why? Why does she have to defend her body? Who is asking her to? Especially her, she has an insane body. How are we not past this? Why do we hate women? Or is J.Lo just mad she didn’t “win” Esquire’s “Sexiest Woman Alive”?
ANYWAY here’s what she told the mag (via USA Today):
When I first started on television (as a Fly Girl on In Living Color), people, and even my own manager at the time, would tell me I had to make all of these changes. But you have to stand up and say, ‘There’s nothing wrong with me or my shape or who I am. You’re the one with the problem!’ And when you can really believe that, all of a sudden other people start believing, too.
Early on, my family really made me love who I was and what I looked like. My body was nothing out of the ordinary in my neighborhood.
You know what the most frustrating thing about this is? The magazine touched up her photos. Because that’s what magazines do. Because even “women with curves” can’t have too many curves. I mean people freak out over a woman in a coat. No one is happy with anything.
The photos from her magazine shoot are below, as well as a candid from the set in which I gotta say, she looks BANGIN.

Jennifer Lopez was spotted walking around without any makeup on (GASP!!!) and am I goddamn crazy or does she look like a teenager? Maybe it’s because I’m so used to seeing her with pounds of makeup that without it she looks really young. Seeing her so casual and not in her usual mismash hot mess extravagant style is quite refreshing.
She’s probably on her way to a meeting.
What do you think? Do you think she looks very young and kinda pretty without makeup or have I lost my mind?
