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"

Kanye West Sighting In Prague
Concert riders are celebrity requests (more like demands) they MUST HAVE in order to perform. Some performers request alcohol, some request clothing and some request food. While on the other hand, some celebs demand more extreme riders, like 100 doves, personal chefs, rolling papers and condoms. Yes, celebrities are known for being high maintenance, but just how far is too far on their concert riders? And who’s responsible for all of these crazy request ...

When Oakland’s Keak Da Sneak coined the term ‘hyphy’ in 1994, it soon developed into a movement rebelling against the ignorance. While many hyphy acts ...
