JLO's clarification on Turkmen performance

Jul 1 2013, 2:01am CDT | by

Los Angeles, July 1 (IANS) Singer Jennifer Lopez, who is being criticised for singing for Turkmenistan President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow in his home country, wouldn't have done so were she aware of human rights issues in the Central Asian nation.

Los Angeles, July 1 — Singer Jennifer Lopez, who is being criticised for singing for Turkmenistan President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow in his home country, wouldn't have done so were she aware of human rights issues in the Central Asian nation.

Lopez Saturday sang "Happy Birthday" for the 56-year-old leader, who has an oppressive record of human rights violations. The singer's performance was criticised by the non-profit Human Rights Foundation eonline.com reported.

Lopez's performance was part of a concert sponsored by "China National Petroleum Corporation, that was presented to their local executives in Turkmenistan. It was not a government sponsored event or political in nature," a statement issued on behalf of Lopez said.

"The event was vetted by her representatives. Had there been knowledge of human rights issues of any kind, Jennifer would not have attended," it added.

The "Happy Birthday" element came after "the China National Petroleum Corporation made a last minute birthday greeting request prior to Jennifer taking the stage," the statement said.

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-proclaim ...

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.
