JHo THIRSTY for another hit.

New video featuring flavor of the month rap girl Latto just dropped. Jenny crawls, writhes, gets wet and flashes nip. But will it be enough to score her another top ten?

Despite having such a long career, she has never grown as an artist. As a pop star she is about on the same level as Sabrina Salerno.

I know I’ll be lit up for this but I actually that she’s a great actress, with proper movie star gravitas. She’s like a lit fuse in Out of Sight and should be an Oscar-nominated actress for Hustlers.

R46 People often forget that she was a bonafide star on the rise *only* as an actress in the 90s, but she shaded so many contemporaries (one infamous interview where she complained about popstars doing films and moving in on her patch, oh the irony) and nobody argued because her talent was so clearly immense, even in trashy movies like Anaconda.

Maybe that’s why she gets a little ignored by the Oscar voters when something like Hustlers appears… you could have been the next Elizabeth Taylor and you threw it away for money and branding - do her peers see her as a sell-out!?

Now that she’s so financially secure, I really would love her to work for scale/nothing on some more exciting films from newcomers - Hustlers really reminded everyone why she was considered so special in those early roles…

JLo only has a career because Tommy Mottola was mad at Mariah Carey and wanted to get back at her. He even gave Mariah’s original “Loverboy” sample to JLo. Luckily for Mariah, JLo can’t sing OR write, so there was no artistic persona for fans to latch onto. The joke was ultimately on Mottola when JLo started flopping after a few years and Mariah rose from the ashes with the Emancipation of Mimi album.

All I did was smile when I saw her 2nd number on SNL. Posed rigidly on some kind of hidden apparatus, unable to move, faux nude, with the flower gown. It seemed to come from the Old Dietrich playbook, so I give props for the control of image JLo manages.

Billboard had to change its rules about how different a song could be and still be a legitimate remix due to JLO gaming the charts.

The original I'm Real (which stole Mariah's Loverboy sample) was released as the third single from JLO in 2001 and promptly flopped. It's the one where JLO arrives in a small town on a motorbike.

Tommy Mottola was determined to destroy his ex-wife Mariah who had now left his record label due to his vindictiveness & had signed with Virgin. Mottola called Ja Rule and told him to copy the song he just made with Mariah (IF WE) so Mariah couldn't release her original. See link below

JLO released the rip off song as I'M REAL (remix) which was allowed to use all the sales and airplay of the original I'm Real to enhance its chart position, despite bring an entirely different song with just the same title. She thought she was onto a winner and did the same with Ain't It Funny, prompting the chart rule change.

R130, exactly! Selena seemed like a genuinely warm, sweet woman and that came through in her music. She was also naturally very pretty and attractive. Selena's music remains very popular today, her youtube numbers are wild. Will anyone remember "Jennie from the Block" 20 years from now? Do they even remember it today? The only reason J Lo is still famous today is because she's recognized as being a novelty, a woman in her 50s who maintains her attractiveness. If that's all you're known for, that's pretty sad.

Great actress??? No. Good, yes. She is a better actor than singer. Hence why she was actually fine as Selena despite being a non-singer. The movie would have still been better if it had a real singer.

Yes, the warmth was missing and overall JLo trying to come across as sweet just doesn’t work. She was miscast.

R147 Can we think of anyone else that would have made a better Selena though? There weren't that many commercially bankable crossover Latina triple threats in the 80's/90's that looked enough like Selena. Thalia was a huge Mexican musical/telenovela sensation around this time, but she looked more like Britney Spears than Selena. Salma Hayek is Mexican and can both sing and act but she also looks nothing like Selena. In terms of Puerto Ricans like JLO: Rosie Perez—obviously not. Same for Lisa Vidal. It pretty much had to be Jennifer.

JLO didn’t shit like Selena in all honesty. JLo looks like a biracial person with more dominant European ancestry, like a lot of lightskin Puerto Ricans. Selena looked mulatto but her nose and overall features from Native American ancestry were strong.

R149 Isn’t this precisely what they did with JLo? Was she known prior to Selena?

by Anonymousreply 151February 10, 2024 1:14 AM

I don’t recall JLO’s level of recognition. I seem to recall Selena fans were disappointed that they did not hire an actress of Mexican descent. I could be misremembering that though. As was said above, the choices were slim. There was very little minority representation overall in movies and television at that time.

by Anonymousreply 173February 11, 2024 7:33 PM

Jennifer Lopez’s first couple of albums were carried by other singers.

She only sang the verses. Sometimes lightly sing over the chorus but the background singers mostly carried the harmonies of the songs. So a lot of the choruses and bridges were sang by someone else.

The greatest evidence is the “Jenny from the Block” reference demo by Natasha Ramos.

J. Lo sang like 30% of the song lol. As she did with all her early albums. It was always someone else.

R173 You are an idiot if you think Puerto Rican JLo doesn’t also have African and Indigenous people descent. Plus I’ve seen her parents in person. They have mulatto mixture.

by Anonymousreply 176February 11, 2024 7:46 PM

R173, Jennifer Lopez is clearly of mixed ancestry and like most Caribbean people, she is a blend of black, white and to a lesser extent, Amerindian ancestry. There is no way she is anywhere near Caucasian, especially without the 50 layers of make up she usually wears.

Anyway, she is a very bad singer, a mediocre actress and a passable dancer who has been promoted to death, and built a career around her revolting globs of cellulite. Which could be forgivable we she not deliriously arrogant, obnoxiously unpleasant and an utter and complete bitch.

by Anonymousreply 177February 11, 2024 7:50 PM

J. Lo and her parents are as brown as Javier Bardem and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Most Puerto Ricans descend from Canarian Spaniards. A lot of white southerners have black and native ancestry DNA, they’re not black or brown.

But another example of another singing carrying a song for her.

Natasha Ramos sang this entire album lol. It’s basically Natasha featuring Jennifer Lopez.

J. Lo only sings the verses.

TLC did the same thing in the 90’s. Debra Killings sang all the background vocals and anything that needed a harmony. She was basically the fourth member. She may have even made more money than the members (who went bankrupt) cause she wrote a few songs too lol.

But at least they were consistent. If you listen to a J. Lo album it sounds like a compilation album, there’s so many different singers on every song.

Rihanna liberated J. Lo from background singers.

Rihanna can’t sing either but songwriters wrote songs for her that wouldn’t require a harmony.

Rihanna pop turned big choruses to just chants and instrumental breakdowns. Songs like “Umbrella” and “Only Girl” and “We Found Love” showed you didn’t need to make a big chorus anymore, just a big chant and a music breakdown.

Since then J. Lo has been able to sing her own songs by herself.

R184 It was of the times.

I don’t know who’s singing most of this song but it’s not Toni lol. It makes sense though with Toni cause her voice was too deep to carry the whole song so they had a lighter voice sing it.

But whoever the background singer is, she’s singing all the harmonies.

R185, the higher voices belong to Toni's sisters, who have always worked as her backup singers. Still, the choruses are not so high that Toni couldn't sing them. She can belt up to F5 and sing comfortably in head voice up to B5. That song is not a challenge for her at all.

Anyway, JHo is a complete disaster and no amount of singing lessons can improve her voice.

R188 Toni is one of the best contemporary r&b vocalists to ever hit the scene. She can sing r&b better than the Queen actually, her voice just isn’t a versatile and she can’t do rap cadence. I once saw an interview where the lead of some hard rock band said Toni’s haunting vocal s on Unbreak my Heart inspired him to be a better singer.

Mariah was the more popular star in the 90s but Toni Braxton could sing rings around her and her voice is still golden today. Mariah was a girl with actual talent but was always a studio vocalist.
