I think people really need to relax about Jennifer Lopez. She is like the modern day Robin Hood. She trades several hours of terrible music for millions of dollars. She is stealing from the rich. She's doing it the only way she knows how. And she knows where she came from.

And where do those dollars she stole go? Back into the American economy! To buy things like blood diamonds, and gold mined from beautiful countries like the Congo. And of course to her entourage, who then go out to buy more diamonds and gold. It's an endless cycle of love and compassion, taken out of the hands of brutal dictators from some country I never heard of, and put into the hands of brutal dictators from some country I never heard of.

She is singing for freedom and democracy. She's talking about her roots. She's taking money stolen from the desperate people. She's creating more desperate people. It's a cycle of peace and beauty and I wish people would cut her some slack.

No one's paying here to perform in the US anymore, so why not take the act on the road?

Still not as bad as Gigli.

Elton John played at Rush Limbaugh's wedding for $1 million. They are friends.

50 Cent and Aerosmith each got $ 2 million to play at the Bat Mitzvah of a Long Island rich girl.

when you come from poverty, youll do anything for more

Yeah, that leader treats his people horribly, and Jennifer Lopez is a horrible person for taking his money!

Say, does anybody know where their sneakers come from? How about the chips that make their cell phones and ps3 systems work?

That money also covers the actual whoring (i.e. "having sex with someone for money") part of the gig, and if you delve into the Hollywood underbelly you'll learn that it's not uncommon for pop stars and actors/actresses to offer these kinds of "shows" to rich, powerful people who can pay the fees.

If I was a tyrant with enough money that the taps in my bathroom were made of solid gold I'd use my entertainment dollar on someone younger and more current. I'd probably just pay Ariel Winter to sit on my lap while I was dressed as Santa Clause.

Why should she have to defend herself,  If somebody wants to pay her 10 million dollars to sing for them then whats the big deal?

The is the America PlanTM.This is how we're going to get back all the money we've lost/pissed away like reactionary scared pussies since 9/11. You're gonna bleed us dry? Ohhh no, amigo, we're bleeding YOU dry, courtesy of Ms. Jennifer Lopez, patriot. This is our country's masterstroke!

She doesn't have to. She could just come out and say she couldn't care less about human rights. I haven't heard her say that yet though.

So you would be against her playing concerts in Israel also?

Somebody paid her to perform, she went and performed, end of story. It was business, it's not like she is supporting their policies.

There's a bit of a difference between performing IN a country and performing for a personal audience of a dictator.

A paycheck is a paycheck. Call me when she is getting paid to perform while the dictator is executing people during her performance.

That honestly makes more sense. Have you ever met a guy that likes Jennifer Lopez's music?

I'm the wrong person to ask. I don't like Lopez at all. Not her music. Not her looks. Not her attitude. Not her acting. Nothing about her is appealing to me. If I had to choose between having sex with JLo and having sex with Rosie O'Donnell, I'd... well, actually, I think I might just have to play dead. I wouldn't do either of them, but they're both on the same level as far as I'm concerned.

Lopez is a vile person, and it's no surprise to me that she puts out for dictators and sheikhs for millions of dollars.

An activist group, too weak to attack politically the figures for whom she's performed, is attempting to shame her (and others) into not performing for them.  The fun part? The original discussion on this had a lot of "alleged" this and "accused of" that, but no actual charges against these figures.

This would be like yelling thatNell Carter and Toby Keith need to return their checks because they performed at the White House for Dubya in 2001, because Dubya's alleged to have done some rather nasty things while in office. That's what this "activist group" is doing.

Here's another question - why isn't this "activist group" attacking the hell out of Dennis Rodman? Y'know, the guy playing "BFFs" with Kim Jong Un? She's just working, while Rodman's trying to milk his visits to North farking Korea for a Nobel Prize nomination - y'know, for doing absolutely nothing whatsoever?

No, what we have here is an "activist group" who thinks that they've found a vulnerability that they can exploit, by first making accusations against certain political figures, and then using those accusations to pressure performers - after the fact, mind you.

Consciousness raising (also called awareness raising) is a form of political activism, popularized by United States feminists in the late 1960s. It often takes the form of a group of people attempting to focus the attention of a wider group of people on some cause or condition.

so long as it keeps her from appearing in movies that i have to endure the trailers for i'm ok with this.
