JULY 3 JENNIFER LOPEZ PERFORMS BIRTHDAY CONCERT FOR TURKMENISTAN PRESIDENT
It all went quite smoothly. A private jet whisked the diva and her entourage into the Central Asian nation. A Cadillac Escalade then chauffeured Ms. Lopez to the resort town of Avaza. After a quick Perrier bath, she slithered into her mini-skirt and hit the stage. Organized by an oil company, the front row was packed with wealthy tycoons, crooked officials and muggy ministers. To their delight, Jenny belted out her hits. She then went backstage and changed into the traditional Turkmen embroidered white gown. Finally, she channeled her inner Marilyn Monroe and gave a sultry serenade to the President. "The very happiest of birthdays to you.." she cooed. Done.
This must have really hurt J-Lo. Recently, she has been trying to reinvent herself as a caring humanitarian and not a spoiled diva. She produced and starred in Bordertown, a gritty film about the violence inflicted to women in Ciudad Juarez. She has been active in Amnesty International and volunteers frequently at the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles. But today, her devotion and motivation is being questioned. "Lopez obviously has the right to earn a living performing for the dictator of her choice and his circle of cronies, said Thor Halvorssen of A.I. "But Saturday's actions utterly destroy the humanitarian message she has cultivated." Ouch!
