Jennifer Lopez apologizes for concert

Jun 30 2013, 2:25pm CDT | by

Jennifer Lopez has apologized for serenading a repressive president for his birthday.

The 'Dance Again' singer sparked controversy after singing 'Happy Birthday' to Turkmenistan leader Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov at a concert in the former Soviet country on Saturday night (06.29.13), but insists she wasn't aware that Reporters Without Borders ranks it as the third most repressive place in the world.

A spokesperson for the 43-year-old singer told the Sunday Telegraph newspaper: "Had there been knowledge of human rights issues any kind, Jennifer would not have attended."

Jennifer, who has five-year-old twins, Max and Emme, with her ex-husband Marc Anthony, was reportedly paid a lot of money to perform at the event and personally serenade the country's leader, whose government is accused of arbitrarily arresting and torturing political dissidents.

Jennifer's choreographer, J. R. Taylor, tweeted before the concert: "The Turkmenistan breeze feels amazing at night, kidz! I wonder were all my Turkmenistan followers are!? Hit me up!"

Several of his followers informed him that Twitter is banned in the country but he later added: "Great show @JLo and @JLodancers Forever raising that bar!!! Thank You #Turkmenistan your hospitality is unparalleled! #LifeOfAChoreographer"

Nov 4 2014 3:34pm CST | Source: WetPaint

The show must go on, even when your wardrobe can’t. Iggy Azalea gave a crowd of teens and pre-teens an eyeful Saturday when her skin-tight pants split during a performance at a bar mitzvah in Los Angeles. The 24-year-old singer dropped it like it’s hot during Jennifer Lopez’s song “Booty” when a split appeared in the fabric around her crotch. The “Fancy” rapper appeared oblivious to the wardrobe malfunction, however, and kept bumpin’ and grinding through the set. Unfortuna ...

Anne Hathaway is trying to make her husband’s jewelry designs happen

Nov 4 2014 7:00am CST | Source: Celebitchy.com

Last week, I covered these photos of Anne Hathaway at the LA premiere of Interstellar. I didn’t hate her Richard Nicholl gown, although it seemed sort of like one of those satin slipdresses that were so popular in the 1990s. In last week’s post, I also identified Annie’s jewelry as James Banks Designs. I even joked about how her husband, Skinny Jeans McGee, I mean Adam Shulman, is a self-proclaimed “jewelry designer.” But I just found out that Shulman IS James Banks Designs. ...

Reconnecting The Circuit Of Puerto Rican Identity Through Music

Nov 2 2014 4:08pm CST | Source: WNYC Music

New Yorkers of Puerto Rican descent are a diverse group. Some were born in Puerto Rico, some have never set foot on the island, and everyone else falls somewhere between. But they do share a special identity, calling themselves "Nuyoricans." And when you look over the long list of notable Nuyoricans — everyone from Supreme Court Justice Sandra Sotomayor to Jennifer Lopez — it's kind of amazing how much they've contributed to American culture.
