Jennifer Lopez shows human emotion during concert: famewhore move?


I have no idea why this story is picking up so much coverage. Everybody always claims they’re so “over” Jennifer Lopez, and then J.Lo does something famewhore-y and then suddenly everybody has to comment. So, Jennifer was performing this weekend at the Mohegan Sun’s 15th anniversary celebration – these are not photos from the event. We don’t have access to photos from the event, but if you really want to see them, go here. I’m using photos from one of Jennifer’s concerts in May for this post, and if it makes any difference, I think she was wearing this same glitzy Spiderwoman catsuit over the weekend too. Anyway, J.Lo was “performing” an acoustic version of “If You Had My Love”… and then she broke down.

Her own lyrics hit a little too close to home for Jennifer Lopez, who broke down in tears onstage after singing a song about loves from her past.

“I’m going to sing you the last song I wrote about love,” Lopez, who recently split from husband Marc Anthony, told the audience at the Mohegan Sun’s 15th anniversary celebration on Saturday night after singing an acoustic rendition of her hit “If You Had My Love.” “A lot has changed since then.”

Lopez, 42, then launched into “Until It Beats No More” while dancers re-enacted scenes with the singer and some of the men from her past. A Lopez lookalike danced with guys who looked a lot like her exes Diddy, Cris Judd and Ben Affleck.

The final couple to appear in the spotlight danced much like Lopez and her estranged husband during their American Idol performance in May, just weeks before they announced their split.

After she was done, Lopez told the sold-out crowd, “I took a trip down memory lane” – and then started to cry as the crowd applauded.

But it wasn’t all sadness for Lopez. A photo of her twins Max and Emme, 3½, and said flashed above her and she said, “There’s love – and then there’s love.”

There’s some video too – but prepare yourself. When Jennifer tries to “sing” instead of merely “talking” the lyrics, it’s pretty bad. Plus, this video only features some of the “emotional” performance, not the part where Jennifer DANCES with dudes who are made up to look like her exes.

So, was this just a famewhore move from a diva? Sure. But was there also some emotion involved? Probably. I think Jennifer is a diva, a famewhore, and obviously, she’s probably pretty crazy. But I’d never accuse her of being a robot. She’s allowed to get weepy on stage. I would get weepy too if I was fake-dating Bradley Cooper.

    Yes, famewhore move. Who would willingly remind themselves of past exes like that?
    Horrible costume.

  2. Beatrix says:

    I forget just how much this woman CANNOT sing. The level of her fame and fanbase is one of the most inexplicable things I just can’t answer. And WHY does she judge on a singing competition!?!?!?!

  3. dorothy says:

    Are you sure she didn’t cry because of that outfit she had on?

  4. Peg says:

    OMG! That is the worst song that I’ve ever heard. I wasn’t even there and I want my money back.

  5. jinni says:

    JLo is showing these young chicks what true famewhoring is about.

    She and her crew must have had this set-up planned for awhile so I don’t know why it was so overwhelming for her since I’m sure she went through the whole routine several times during rehearsals. So, she should not be acting as if she hasn’t seen it already.

  6. MChannel says:

    She’s hotter than ever career-wise. The only ones who are over her are only the jealous people.

  7. MChannel says:

    Btw, on the floor just became the #3 most viewed video EVER on youtube o.O

  8. teehee says:

    Yeah, I agree with her comment about her children versus her lovers: there’s love, and then there is love– the love for family is nothing like the selfish and conditional attraction to someon who is not your family… real love is definitely mroe than the romantic kind of love. What is best in a relationship is when both kinds of love are combined to make the relatinonship truly stable and complete.

  9. NM9005 says:

    She’s an actress too after all. This is pretty insightful actually, I didn’t know she loved anybody else except herself =).

  10. whome says:

    Omg, Fame whore!!!! god i cant get over how tacky she is.. I think she is so pretty thick thighs and all! but y must she constantly dress like she is trying to prove that she still 21..

  11. Cali says:

    LMFAO, best post title ever!!!

  12. Cherry Rose says:

    Second picture…O_O; did they really have to do that angle for that photo?

    And wow, I’ve never heard her live, and I never will again after this. And dancing around guys that look like your exes is definitely a famewhore move. I mean, really.

    But, her ass is epic. And definitely real. Kim Kardashian has nothing on JLo’s ass.

  13. MellaYella says:

    Eat your heart out Kim Kardashian. Jlo is showing what a real butt looks like. No injections in this one

  14. bluhare says:

    @Mchannel:”The only ones who are over her are only the jealous people.”

    The ones who are over her are jealous? That’s a new one. I must be the most jealous person alive then.

    Excuse me while I channel Elaine Bennis: “Fake . . . fake . .. FAKE.”

  15. Onyx XV says:

    Absolutely a famewhore/drama queen move. She needs to quit trying to sing, because she can’t. She’s not a bad actress though. She should just stick to that and spare the world.

  16. islandwalker says:

    Had to watch it with the sound off, her voice is beyond grating. She has a good figure but no clue how to dress her body. Someone please ban the onesies.

  17. Deven says:

    This is considered singing?? I’d pay not to have to go into the auditorium!!

  18. Lu says:

    Actually she CAN sing. I don’t disagree with you but she does have some vocal chops, albeit thin ones.

    This blogger here breaks down the voices and performances of some artists and has this to say about J.Lo (which I think is revealing):

    Otherwise I don’t think she “broke down” just “teared up” is how it was described elsewhere. I had a friend that went to that concert and when she teared up that’s when everyone applauded (that or when she said what she said about her kids).

    I don’t think she was calculating this. I think she was doing what urban pop/contemp. adult pop/dance music artists do (that’s what the genre is called!) and that’s try to tell a story.

    But she should have left it veiled or vague and not drawn so directly from her past. I guess she knows that those relationships and the images of them are kind of iconic now, right?

    In any case, I so agree with Kaiser. Everyone says they are “so over” Jennifer but they can’t resist talking about her or commenting on her.

    I want to give her the benefit of the doubt because she in underdog to me at this point, and I’m just going to say that she was naive (even if she is a smart business women you can be naive about some things.)

    Oh well.

  19. Marca says:

    She looks like she’s in labor in the second pic

  20. Poison Ivy says:

    That video shows exactly why she never went on tour. Who would pay hard earned money for this ish? It’s like fingernails on a chalkboard…Yikes!

    She sucks as a singer and as an actress.STAT.

  21. fabchick says:

    I love jlo, so I won’t comment on the performance but that body suit outfit is horrible. Her body looks good though.

  22. whitedaisy says:

    Gah. She is untalented and delusional.
    Who are all of the new posters on this story? Jennifer’s PR team?
    Unimpressed as she is unimpressive.
    And please, for the love of God, close your mouth.

  23. Amanda G says:

    J.Lo wrote a song? I thought for sure she was more of a Britney Spears and just sang what she was given.

    But yeah, this was definitely a fame whore moment.

  24. ShanKat says:

    Showing human emotion is a total famewhore move.

  25. Maritza says:

    I love watching her music videos on youtube, she is definitely a talented choreographer and singer. I wish she finds herself her perfect match, I doubt it’s Bradley Cooper though.

  26. Christine says:

    Famewhore and professional Victim. With a capital V. Not in reality, but the story she is selling to her “fans.” Can you imagine admitting to your friends you are going to a J.Lo concert? I cannot.

  27. anne_000 says:

    I never understood how she made it as a ‘singer.’ It’s like Rosie Perez trying to sing at a karaoke contest.

  28. Dana M says:

    Aren’t all showbiz people famewhores, though, on different levels? They all want to be famous and in demand for their craft and will do what they can for PR whether it’s calling the paps on themselves, attending events or fake dating, etc.

    I had forgotten that singing was not her ” forte”. I would get teary and emotional too if I was singing about love knowing I had 3 failed marriages and several engagement break ups. Sux!

  29. Violet says:

    Famewhore move. I didn’t want to subject myself to JLo’s “singing” so I didn’t look at the clip, but the stage must’ve been pretty crowded if she had men dressed up like her exes in the show.

    JLo probably managed to muster up a few tears thinking of how much the divorce is going to cost her in legal fees.

  30. Sara says:

    She is so cheesy, always has been.

  31. Eleonor says:

    What the hell is that outfit??

  32. Jayna says:

    I would never buy an album of hers. Not a great tone and thin. But On The Floor (ft. Pittbull) is glorious dance pop.

  33. e.non says:

    who in the hell would include stand-ins for former boyfriends in a damned song/dance routine?

    oh, right. j-ho.

  34. The Truth says:

    The pics you posted are from Wango Tango, pretty pathetic, you can’t even get your story or pics straight

    DEAD@ at all the commenters here being over her, but still felt the need to comment

  35. The Truth says:


    One Love is a mid tempo song, again those pics are from Wango Tango and JHO, lol takes one to know one, fucking idiot

  36. sally says:

    I stopped watching American Idol because of this big assed whore and I’m glad I did!

  37. BerMan says:

    Jen, You can have it all, then it hits you and you realize that all the hard work of living a lie, is still living a lie.

  38. Cherry Rose says:

    @The Truth – Sorry we don’t all worship JLo like you do. And Kaiser stated in her post that these aren’t the pictures from that night. Why don’t you read the post before making rude and snotty comments. Besides, don’t call someone a f*cking idiot because they happen to have an opinion that is not to your liking. Peace.

  39. NaomiCampbellsPhone says:

    J-NO! That singing sounded like a bad idol audition, and why would you have people dressed like your ex boyfriends and husbands dancing around you? That’s just tacky and weird.

  40. e.non says:

    #36 — too bad about that issue you have with reading comprehension:

    Lopez, 42, then launched into “Until It Beats No More” while dancers re-enacted scenes with the singer and some of the men from her past. A Lopez lookalike danced with guys who looked a lot like her exes Diddy, Cris Judd and Ben Affleck

  41. Ranga says:

    Her fans probably loved it, and that’s who she would be doing it for no? (including herself, her #1 fan :p) Entertaining diva is an entertaining diva.

  42. pwal says:

    Sorry, but going through the process of casting and approving ex lookalikes scream “FAMEWHORE”.

    But will this become the new standard for milking past relationships? Because, somehow, I doubt this bit of self-serving bull$h*t will result in 400+ comments and this tomfoolery deserves the ire.

  43. Tiffany says:

    Of course she did this for attention. By putting “look-alike” dancers of her past relationships, it was clearly planned. She gets more attention for her love life than for her “talent”…if you could even call it that. She knows that if she kept her private details private, people would have no reason to care about her, so she sells her private life. She has been doing this for years now, folks.

  44. Tiffany says:

    “It’s like Rosie Perez trying to sing at a karaoke contest.”

    LOL!!!! Funniest comment of the day!

  45. Jayna says:

    Ben Affleck is on his knees right about now thanking God he didn’t marry her.

  46. Bad Fairy says:

    SHe’s almost as vile as Madonna.

  47. koko269 says:

    Anne_000 – HAHAHAAHAHAHA
    “I never understood how she made it as a ’singer.’ It’s like Rosie Perez trying to sing at a karaoke contest.”

    That is just too damn hilarious!

  48. Joe's Mom says:

    @Jayne, you’re probably so right! And JMHO, but I too believe she had this phony rehearsed “breakdown” cuz she’s a famewhore. Plain and simple. Another desperate attempt to stay in the news. You don’t see Steven Tyler doing this and he certainly hasn’t been forgotten. She’s addicted to inserting herself in our faces!!! Ugh.

  49. Kosmos says:

    OMGddd, dancing with dudes who are made up to look like her Exes??!!….how ridiculous is that!!?? Oh, gosh, I didn’t like her before this and now even LESS ! Where is the taste here? Double Gag…Her outfit is horrible. I don’t know what to say, except that she has an over-sized butt and is highly overrated, with little or no singing skill and is addicted to herself!

  50. gg says: The link for her video that contains the part with the back up dancers dressed as her exes.

  51. smh says:

    I couldn’t even wait until the weepy part it was so horrible having to listen to her singing fail. she really can’t hit those high notes without studio adjustment, so why even try and make an idiot of yourself on stage? but of course the concert goers were too busy worshipping her huge butt to notice that. anyway it’s gotten fashionable for pop stars to divulge their private lives on concerts. madonna, skeletor anthony and so on. if the paps followed them they would fake whine about how they have no privacy anymore. i think it’s a bit of both (feeling sorry for herself and famewhoring) so i’ll term her drama queen

    EDIT: I didn’t know about dressing her back-up dancers as her exes! i was giving her the benefit of doubt before, now i’m convinced, if that isn’t famewhoring i don’t know what is lol.

  52. JaneWonderfalls says:

    Yeah I think a bit fame whoring because we forget about her dancer ex Chris Judd and the other Cuban fellow she was dating in her beginning career, what happened to them, are they chopped liver. Why did she just pick the super famous boyfriends to shed a tear over.

  53. JaneWonderfalls says:

    This is terrible, I was to caught up in the bad singing. God with all her money she can’t get some singing lessons.

  54. smh says:

    @JaneWonderFalls I think she did get singing lessons, she’s just really untalented. or the voice got affected by god knows what she used… i agree with everything that @onyx XV wrote actually

  55. rita says:

    terrible move
    and voice
