Sheryl Crow Wasn’t A Fan Of Jennifer Lopez’s Performance At The American Music Awards: “Less Pole Dancing Please”

Watch all the performances at the 2014 American Music Awards, from Taylor Swift to J.Lo!

Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea closed the American Music Awards last night (November 23) with a jaw-dropping performance of Diplo-produced club-banger “Booty”. It was generally praised as one of the best moments of an otherwise lackluster night but the sexy spectacle obviously didn’t sit well with Sheryl Crow. The veteran singer/songwriter jumped on Twitter to ask for: “More real singing, less pole dancing please.”

She was referring to the segment where J.Lo and Iggy twirled around a stripper pole in swimsuits/leotards. While I agree with Sheryl about the singing — the whole night was littered with underwhelming vocal performances — it seems odd that she would use her platform for misguided slut-shaming. Jennifer sang live while dancing around the stage like a woman possessed and still managed to look sexy, powerful and in control. She also deserves props for being only one of two women over 40 (the other being Mary J. Blige) considered relevant enough to perform at the AMAs.

American Music Awards 2014: Jennifer Lopez Steals The Show With Her Sexy, Barely-There Dress

God bless, Jennifer Lopez. While most of the attendees of tonight’s (November 23) American Music Awards dressed like they were going to a funeral, the sexiest woman alive — it’s not even up for debate anymore — stunned onlookers by rocking a barely-there ensemble, which showcased the stunning diva’s legendary curves. She was hands-down the best-dressed on the night and single-handedly saved the red carpet. Can someone please give her an honorary award?

Apart from making jaws drop in the sexiest dress at the AMAs, J.Lo will also take to the stage to perform “Booty” with Iggy Azalea. The butt-themed club-banger has been the biggest hit from Jenny’s much-underrated A.K.A. LP, reaching the top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100 — mostly due to YouTube views of the eye-popping video. The pop legend also dropped an autobiography this year, which (of course) turned out to be a bestseller. See her gorgeous pics up top. More »

Jennifer Lopez Talks Being Abused “Mentally, Emotionally, Verbally” In New Memoir


Jennifer Lopez has been a tabloid fixture thanks to her high-profile relationships with Puff Daddy, Ben Affleck and Marc Anthony, among others. (See her “Jenny from the Block” video for proof.) However, she has yet to open up about these relationships as she apparently has in her forthcoming memoir True Love, out November 4. “I’ve never gotten a black eye or a busted lip, but I’ve felt abused in one way or another: mentally, emotionally, verbally,” she says, according to PEOPLE.

While Lopez doesn’t say who was responsible for such abuse, she did mention that Anthony, her third husband and the father of her two children, found True Love to be revealing. “He read it and said, ‘Wow, I didn’t realize you were going through this whole journey,’ ” she says. “We try to be supportive of each other. We feel that’s the best thing for our kids.” Anthony had filed for divorce in 2012, shortly after the couple’s seventh wedding anniversary.

Jennifer Lopez Is Still Flaunting Her Flawless Bikini Body In Late October. Because She Can.

Jennifer Lopez continues her one-woman war against ageism in the entertainment industry by posting a flawless bikini pic on Instagram. The game’s hottest triple threat was roasted by some commentators for cavorting with Iggy Azalea in her sexy “Booty” video, while younger artists like Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus were lauded for similar antics.

Jenny’s message is clear. She’s 45, she looks incredible and will wear as much (or as little) clothing as she likes. Apart from heating up Instagram, rumors about the diva getting her own Las Vegas residency (a la Britney Spears) continue to gather momentum. Sounds like a no-brainer to me. Who wouldn’t want to spend the night with J.Lo in Sin City? See her bikini pic after the jump. More »

Girls Take It Off: 16 Super Sexy Pics Of Pop Divas Baring Almost All In 2014 (Q3)

It’s time for our quarterly round-up of raunchy pop diva pics! And, as usual, the leading ladies of music did not disappoint. In further proof that 2014 is the year of the nude, it was almost an embarrassment of the riches with everyone from 19-year-old newcomer Niykee Heaton to 56-year-old pop legend Madonna losing their clothes in the name of self expression/free publicity.

The usual candidates are all represented. Outtakes from Rihanna‘s iconic Lui magazine shoot surfaced online and got everyone clicking, while Miley Cyrus‘ Instagram account remains a valid alternative to PornHub. Honorable mentions go to Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea for proving that rap divas do it better. Peruse the (semi-NSFW) gallery up top. More »
