Here’s the video from Jennifer Lopez’s fall during the American music Awards last night. This is only a 14 second clip of the fall, so you don‘t have to listen to the whole damn song again. You can just watch it over and over and chuckle. You can barely even hear the backing track’s incessant repetition of “Louboutin” thank God. Jennifer says the name like she’s got a speech impediment. Or like she has a friend named Lou Baton, and she wants to sing a song about him. With a speech impediment. It’s pretty rough, but Jennifer did recover with grace. She didn’t even fall that hard – her feet did break her fall, so it was more like she lost her balance than she actually “fell”.
Anyway, Ryan Seacrest just did an interview with Jennifer a few hours ago, and she was trying to be coy or funny, and she’s all “did something happen?” and “I meant to do that.” Haha, Lola. So funny:
Did Jennifer Lopez suffer a concussion after falling during her “Louboutins” number at the American Music Awards Sunday?
The singer-actress jokingly played the amnesiac during a Monday interview on Ryan Seacrest’s KIIS FM radio show. “Did I trip a little bit?” she says coyly when Seacrest mentions the tumble. “I don’t even remember.”
Lopez’s mishap occurred after the star mounted a human pyramid of bare-chested male dancers and jumped off a dancer’s back — landing on her famous bottom and quickly bouncing back up.
After Seacrest commends her for executing the “greatest recovery ever,” Lopez kids: “I meant to do that. What are you talking about? Don’t you know me better than that? It was part of the choreography!”
Suddenly philosophical, she adds: “the measure of things is, it’s not what happens when you fall, it’s how you handle it when you fall.”
Her biggest — but most jittery — fan? Husband Marc Anthony. “When I perform, this man is a nervous wreck. It is very cute,” she coos. “Last night, he was very proud. He couldn’t stop — he was beaming.”
“Louboutins” will appear on Lopez’s next album, Love?, due in “late February, early March,” she says. “Love with a question mark behind it, because I think, it’s the eternal question, it’s something that after many experiences myself and even watching what everyone goes through around me . . . it’s the one thing that is still the most confusing.”

My favorite part is where she gets all philosophical and says “the measure of things is, it’s not what happens when you fall, it’s how you handle it when you fall.” Thank you, Mahatma Lola. Lola speaketh: “Sometimes you bust your ass, y’all.”
As CB pointed out in her earlier post, and others have noted as well, the whole performance was weird and Lola would have been criticized regardless. I mean, boxing? Seriously? The song sucks (but not as badly as “Fresh Out the Oven” which makes me twitch) and Lola was lip-synching. Just terrible.
