J.Lo's 'I Luh Ya Papi' turns the tables on rap videos: Watch it here

Sick of all the under-dressed ladies that rappers like to have decorating their sets like sexy lawn ornaments? So is Jennifer Lopez.

That’s why she decided to put men in tiny bikini bottoms, slather them in oil and perch them around the pool. No, I’m not (just) describing her home life: It’s J. Lo’s new music video!

On American Idol Thursday night, Lopez unveiled her video for “I Luh Ya Papi” — a clip that turns the tables on rap video stereotypes. And it’s pretty glorious. At one point she’s on a yacht, pouring champagne in some guy’s Speedo. This isn’t exactly moving us past the sexual objectification of music videos, but it sure is fun to watch:

Jennifer Lopez sings in human-rights-violating Turkmenistan

Jennifer Lopez sang “Happy Birthday” to the leader of Turkmenistan during a show, but her representative said she wouldn’t have performed there at all if she had known there were human rights issues in the country.

The singer and actress performed in the former Soviet bloc country on Saturday night. A statement released Sunday by her publicist to The Associated Press said the event was hosted by the China National Petroleum Corp. and wasn’t a political event.

However, the country’s leader, Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow, did attend. Berdimuhamedow has been criticized for oppressive rule by human rights organizations. Human Rights Watch describes Turkmenistan as “among the most repressive in the world.”

After a United Nations visit last month, Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights Ivan Simonovic said the country had made progress in the area of human rights, but “a lot more work is needed to complete this process and to ensure practice is in line with international standards.”

Jennifer Lopez gets rhinestone-y, parties with wolves for 'Goin' In' video: Watch here

Perhaps Jennifer Lopez shouldn’t have been so hasty about walking away from American Idol, as it seems like her lip-bedazzling budget has now gone up approximately 3,000 percent. What is it about women named Jennifer and the urge to attach sparkly things to unusual parts of their bodies?

Other things present in the ultra-colorful video for her “Goin’ In” include a topless Flo Rida, a paint-filled hand grenade, and Lopez giving a little shimmy when she recites the song’s instant-classic lyric about “going orangutan” (yes, bananas).

Jennifer Lopez’s “Dance Again” video: ‘Inception’ orgy in a perfume bottle?

jennifer-lopez-2

The video for J. Lo’s newest sweaty, synthy club-banging pop anthem premiered last night on American Idol, and although the song is relatively harmless and catchy, the video is…confusing.

A stream of vodka flowing in zero gravity alerts us at the beginning that this isn’t your madre‘s J.Lo video — a fact further validated when she starts going at it with her tattooed paramour in a zero-gravity hotel corridor.

Whether it’s Lopez dancing like a glittering Latina Silver Surfer or the dramatic St. Elsewhere-like twist at the end (did we mention that the entire thing takes place inside a perfume bottle? Because it does), the video for “Dance Again” is something worth checking out, even if you’re not a Lopez fan. READ FULL STORY

Jennifer Lopez once again joins forces with Pitbull for new single 'Dance Again': Hear it here!

This season of American Idol has been weak on water cooler moments and breakout performances.

The biggest newsmakers are still the people sitting behind the judges’ table: Steven Tyler just announced that a new album and tour from his band Aerosmith, and now Jennifer Lopez has dropped a new single called “Dance Again.”

Lopez (who totally didn’t flash any of her naughty bits during the Oscar telecast) got her great career resurrection last summer with the single “On the Floor,” featuring a guest verse from Pitbull and production by RedOne. Clearly operating in the “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” idiom, Lopez once again sings over a buttery disco groove with an assist from Miami’s favorite bilingual MC.

Jennifer Lopez stars in another ad, this time for expensive stereos

While her album Love? won’t be showing up on Entertainment Weekly‘s list of the 10 best albums of 2011 (you can see that list in the issue that hits newsstands this Friday, by the way), Jennifer Lopez has ultimately had more ups than downs this year.

Sure, her marriage ended and she got involved in this debacle with Mick Jagger and will.i.am, but Love? sold well, “On the Floor” shot her back up the charts, and she received consistently high marks for her run on American Idol.

She also cashed quite a few checks from the likes of car manufacturer Fiat, cosmetics company L’Oreal, and now fancy home-theater masterminds Harman/Kardon. In the new commercial, Lopez presides over a symphony of destruction that somehow acts as a metaphor for sonic self-improvement and contemporary comfort. Or something.

'T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)' video from Will.i.am, Jennifer Lopez, and Mick Jagger has arrived. So what's the most ridiculous part?

There is nothing more I could say here to entice you to watch the just-released video for “T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever),” the Will.i.am track featuring Mick Jagger and Jennifer Lopez that they (minus a video’d-in Jagger) previously performed on the American Music Awards.

Much like Stefon regularly says on SNL, this video has everything: psychedelic color wars, motorcycle stunts, and instantly appearing screens of Lopez having a pose-off with herself.

I think the fairest thing to say is it’s exactly what you were probably expecting — if what you were expecting was a 2 Fast 2 Furious outtake crossed with E.T. (the movie, not the Katy Perry song, although, honestly, that works too) that at some point around minute 2 turns into a video game portal into the next galaxy — with a shimmying, rocking Mick Jagger to guide the way.

I hope you don’t get motion sickness, because there is definitely an abundance of what appears to be strobe-light-lite once this video begins to defy gravity: READ FULL STORY

Jennifer Lopez cries onstage during Connecticut concert: Watch the video

The emotions (and the dancing doppelgangers) of romances past caught up to Jennifer Lopez on Saturday night at Connecticut’s Mohegan Sun Casino.

The singer-actress-mogul, recently separated from husband Marc Anthony (and already linked to a new love, actor Bradley Cooper), broke down in tears while introducing an acoustic version of her 1999 hit “If You Had My Love.”

According to E! News, the performance featured dancers dressed to look like former Lopez paramours, including Anthony, Diddy, Ben Affleck, and Cris Judd.

“You want to talk about love? I can talk about love. Oh, the stories!” Lopez told the audience before launching into what she called “the first song [she] wrote about love.”

“A little trip down memory lane, huh?,” she said as the song wound down, before wiping at her eyes and walking offstage.

Jennifer Lopez joins Enrique Iglesias for a little 'Mouth 2 Mouth': Listen here!

Enrique Iglesias has really been on a roll in the singles department.

Coming off the success of last year’s “I Like It,” Iglesias has spent the entirety of 2011 knocking shots out of the park, including the filthy-minded “Tonight,” the Usher-assisted “Dirty Dancer,” and the recently unveiled Pitbull-fueled “I Like How It Feels.”

Just for kicks, he’s pulled the curtain back on “Mouth 2 Mouth,” which is neither a guide to giving CPR to a heart attack victim nor a b-side from Prince’s unpronounceable symbol period. Rather, it’s an elastic, double-groovy duet with Jennifer Lopez (another singer who seems to turn everything she touches to gold this year, Fiat commercials notwithstanding).

The track will appear on Iglesias’ deluxe reissue of his 2010 album Euphoria, helpfully titled Euphoria Reloaded. Give it a spin after the jump.  READ FULL STORY
