Jennifer Lopez’s ugly, trashtastic ‘Louboutins’ cover art


Oh, yes. I love it! Isn’t it terrible? This is Jennifer Lopez’s new cover art for her awesomely bad song “Louboutins” and her album “Love”. Here’s the thing – after having an absolutely horrible week in which you bust your ass on national network television, and your two singles “Louboutins” and “Fresh Out the Oven” are blasted as God-awful, wouldn’t you just go dark for a few days? Wouldn’t you say to yourself, “Hey, I don’t need this… I’m going to the beach.” Not Jennifer. She’s convinced herself that we need her. That we need this lackluster, ugly art work to go with her horrible music. You know what’s even worse? All Jennifer is doing is calling attention to the fact that no one really cares about her. This whole week, all I can think about is how out-of-touch Jennifer seems.

Jennifer Lopez released “Louboutins” as the lead single from her upcoming seventh studio album “Love?“. Written by The-Dream and Tricky Stewart, the song is a metaphor for a woman walking out on a no-good man, with the signature red bottoms on the popular Christian Louboutin heels visible as she struts off.

The single was first played on Ryan Seacrest’s KISS FM radio show on November 23, 2009 following her performance at the 2009 American Music Awards.

The single and video, on the Epic Records label, will debut on mainstream radio stations beginning December 8, 2009. J-Lo will also appear on an upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live.

The artwork for the single seems a little lackluster, showing J-Lo stretched out in a black lacy catwoman style jumpsuit and Louboutin heels.

Jennifer’s producer Tricky Stewart told Vibe: “If the females get behind [the song] and they really get into the lyrics of what she’s saying and the metaphor, I think it could be a really, really big hit for her. Anytime you work with an artist whose platform is so high and she’s gonna get exposure, we’re just hoping there’s a connection with those lyrics coming from her.” Um… what? The lyrics are just an ode to materialism. Which, granted, describes a lot of music these days. But a lot of those materialistic lyrics aren’t being wrapped up in some feminist bow. And how does Jennifer, photographed laying on her back in a lace bodysuit and stilettos make her a feminist again?

    I think the suit is kinda sexy, not necessarily on her though. I was thinking about her fall at the MMA’s and I wonder if her fall wasn’t more attributed to lack of physical fitness. I bet she didn’t really practise much before she jumped back into the game. Most dancers are in GREAT shape. Being a part part part part time mom sure wouldn’t keep you in great shape. I doubt sex with Skeletor is much of a work out either.

  2. Wendie says:

    That font used for “J-LO” is the same as the old “JELLO” logo.

  3. ien says:

    j-lo is over. she’s been over.
    she needs to move on…cuz this shit she’s putting out is painfully pathetic and try-too-hardy.

  4. Alexa says:

    I thought it was o.k. And “Jennifer Lopez” IS about her physical self – she looks GOOD! I think pics & videos of HER are a good portion of what sells her music. I like her cover for “Louboutins.” Speaking of – I’ll take anyone’s hand-me-downs. (I’m an 8.5 B.)

  5. Karen says:

    J-Lo will singlehandedly cause the Louboutin craze to jump the shark. I won’t be shedding any tears because I cannot afford to trade 2 months of mortgage payments for a pair of those wretched but beautiful shoes.

  6. Tess says:

    She made a wrong turn career-wise after “Blood and Wine.”

    She did a good job in it and could have used it to quietly build up her acting cred.

  7. anna says:

    It’s easy to hate on J-Lo, goodness knows she annoys me to no end. However, if I had to be objective about this album’s imminent failure: I think she stayed too long at the party with this new stuff. She’s gotten married, had two children….why is she still is singing with the mentality of a 25 year old (Nothing against 25 year olds, it’s just that when you are 40, it’s not cute anymore….) She’s not a pop tartlet anymore, and she is not Madonna. Give it up, J-Lo..

  8. waldemar says:

    on the cover it is written as Louboulins.


  9. Sudini says:

    “Tricky Stewart told Vibe: “If the females get behind [the song]…”

    UGH! It may be just me, but it pisses me off everytime I hear people refer to women as “females”. Makes me feel like a specimen and it somehow sounds primitive.

    Just. Say. “Women”.

  10. Kevin says:

    ITA (just learned that thank you) Anna. Very astute!

  11. Eileen Yover says:

    Is it just me or is Louboutins misspelled?

  12. Jane says:

    I thought she let it be known she did not want to be referred to as J-Lo once she married. Is my memory wrong? Why go back to that now on her album cover?

  13. bo says:

    “Louboutins” is written in a font that’s extremely popular in France and is used for fashion mags there. It’s still really modern. However…. it can’t save the J-LO or the rest of it, in my opinion.

  14. bo says:

    p.s. Lazy Photoshop under her waist. doesn’t the backdrop have a bend right there?

    Did she make this cover herself in Paint?

  15. Maria says:

    she really has zero b00bies. she is mad outta proportion!

  16. multikultiMe says:

    out of touch – not so far out of touch as Tom Cruise, but in the same direction – la pobrecita!

  17. hannah says:

    what i hate about this song is how she says louboutin…its not “luisboutin” its louboutin. Sorry, it just irks me!

  18. Vermithrax says:

    I thought she wanted to shed the “JLo” moniker.

  19. Firestarter says:

    Looks like the logo for Jell-O.

  20. mollination says:

    Beyonce basically already made this song. The one where she says “to the left”.

  21. DiMi says:

    The songs and cover art are stupid, but her body and face look fantastic, especially for a 40 year old woman who recently gave birth. She looks pretty amazing. I like it that she looks healthy, and womanly while still being fit instead of being a stick. I have to give her points for that.

    And she may have fallen on her bum, but she got up, finished her odd routine, and handled it like a pro. I’m sorry, I’ve got to respect that. We all fall on our bums sometimes.

  22. MsTriste says:

    I thought it was spelled ‘Laboutin’. And no way is her waist even remotely that small. I understand Photoshop, but still, shouldn’t it be somewhat anatomically correct?

  23. Beth says:

    This cover looks like something from the ’70’s or ’80’s. The chorus always cracks me up. I don’t think I have ever heard the same line repeated so many times. I guess the writers couldn’t come up with another verse.

  24. Lisa says:

    The cover looks like a cheap paste up done by a high school student, the song is so horrible, I had to mute the sound to read the rest of the blog.

    What ever career she is trying to re-start it is way too late, she should have never gone into fashion with that horrible fashion line, and her movie career ended years ego. I wander if all the fur wearing created bad karma for her. But I remember PETA calling her a monster, and that kind of stuck in my mind. She should stick to something she is good at, like staying at home and designing diaper bags.

  25. Kathie says:

    Back to the mis-spelled cover, I understand the different font making letters look strange and “arty” but we don’t cross t’s in this brave new world? To me it’s all about looking deliberate and this looks like an accidental misspelling that got past the editor.

  26. CB Rawks says:


    Me too! I hate it when people refer to women as females! I feel like we are suddenly a herd of something corraled on a ranch, having our child-bearing parts evaluated.

  27. rraven says:

    i feel bad for her, it’s kinda sad how clueless she is being about things, i can’t understand that she doesn’t know this stuff will be percieved as trying too hard..she should have just parred things down a little, i agree with Anna, she is not Madonna, or lady gaga or beyonce for that matter, not to say i like their music, but they seem way more believable regardless

  28. Sumodo says:

    She just TRIES too damn hard, and it shows. If she wasn’t parodying a famous brand show AND an iconic catsuit from “Nine,” she would be more original and less tarted- up.

  29. Sumodo says:

    Big ups to rraven, thinking the same thought as the same time together!

  30. Elden says:

    Um … I thought J-LO was sucking on PETA’s you-know-what over fur. Aren’t Louboutins made of leather? WTF? Next she’ll come out with a perfume made from orphans’ tears. Or something like that. Is every PETA celebrity this shallow?

  31. bo says:

    Every day that there are no celebitchy morning links, a baby is born without a soul.

  32. Prensa Rosa says:

    I thought she didn’t want us to call her “J Lo” anymore?

  33. Camille says:

    Can’t stand her. And her 15 minutes of relevance has been and gone years ago.

  34. Lisa says:

    The boxer theme was all wrong, she looks too butch dancing, like a little fat man.. She should have worn her usual jello attire. The song is so horrible it gives me an instant headache.

  35. GatsbyGal says:

    Pop music has been doing just fine without her. I wish she’d realize how washed-up and last week she seems.

  36. snowball says:

    Well, at least we don’t have to call her Jenny from the Block anymore.

    This cover looks like some crapola art project from the 70’s except for the hilarious Photoshopping. I wonder if she’s ticked off now that Kim Kardassian is getting all the attention for having a big butt.

    I’m trying to think of something she’s good at now that she should stick to, but I’m coming up empty. She’s not as good as Madge at reinventing herself.

    Her ego is still colossal, I’ll bet.

  37. Bete says:

    She is beyond trashy. She wouldn’t have a singing career if she hadn’t done a certain music producer, who know markets himself as a male fragrance ‘James Bond’ (he wishes).
    I hope she has a fall in her Louboutins. Talk about a huge suck up to a shoe designer. Then again she is accustomed to sucking.

  38. gg says:

    Is it just me or does anyone else see: JELL-O ?

    Also, way to totally destroy the Louboutins brand! They have got to be cringing. Reminds me of an article I read about Cristal telling the rappers to quit rapping about them because they’re cheapening their label. I think it was Puff Kitty.

  39. lucy2 says:

    Very cheesy, and totally right about the Jello lettering. Too funny.

    I agree that she’s way over and out of touch. Why she keeps insisting on having a music career is beyond me.

  40. Sigh. says:

    We can barely see the “Louboutins.”


  41. Trillion says:

    Manolo B. is breathing a sigh of relief and laughing his ass of at this.

  42. p3rp3tu4 says:

    Gawd that looks itchy.

  43. snowball says:

    Haha Trillion, I was thinking the same thing. And Jimmy Choo is probably doing the same.

  44. Jag says:

    I agree with everything said here: the font looks like Jello, she had said she didn’t want to be called J-lo ever again, and I’m not seeing a T in Louboutins. Also, I like the catsuit and think she’s in great shape. lol Her waist looks funny because she’s straining to show us the bottoms of the shoes, imo.

  45. Jazz says:

    The tiny photoshopped waist makes her ass look even bigger.

  46. At this point J-Lo is a good example of an artist that is not evolving. It makes no sense to try and look and sound 10 to 15 years younger without giving the impression that your trying to be relevant. She should stick to acting in roles that she could pull off since she’s a mediocre actor at best (nothing wrong with that) and concentrating on her family life in between.

  47. bella says:

    I almost stopped the video, but I wanted to see her much ballyhooed fall.

    Epic fail, J-Ho. Instead of “Glow”-ing, try growing. You’re a 40-year-old married woman with 2 kids, not that “Fly Girl” from In Living Color. Get over it.

    p.s. if you kind of look real close & cross your eyes, it looks like there’s a very thin “cross” to the “t” in Louboutins.

  48. JaNa'e says:

    its time for her to retire; her career reached its plateau years ago and is now quickly going downhill. my advice would be to go home and raise her kids because she’s no longer considered competition to anyone whose coming out now. she’s just embarrassing herself at this point.

  49. ccoop says:

    Somewhere far, far away, Ben Affleck is thanking his lucky stars.

  50. pixiegirl says:

    This is beyond embarrassing for her. It saddens me when women can’t embrace the age they are. She has the money and resources to make good pop music. And she can do it as a sexy yet respectable woman. It’s not that hard J-Lo!

  51. la chica says:

    she’s still living in the 80’s. very sad.

  52. meglet says:

    Are we sure this isn’t just terrible fan-art?

  53. Karin says:

    This ‘female’ can only hear:

    I’m throwing on my loo-bi-tans
    I still can’t pronounce loo-bi-tans
    only just heard about the loo-bi-tans
    rest of the world’s done with loo-bi-tans
    watch me in my loo-bi-tans
    will after this I still have fans?

  54. bella says:

    @ Karin
    ROTFLMAO You are too funny!

  55. fizXgirl314 says:

    the chorus in this song can seriously be used to torture someone…

  56. Leticia says:

    Regarding the album cover, I like retro things so I don’t mind it. It reminds me of a Herb Albert album that we had around the house when I was a kid.

    But I would never defend her music, because it is indefensible.

  57. lolo says:

    WTF is she singing? I’m falling on my Louboutins?

  58. diva says:

    After her “performance” at the AMAs I think now would be a good time to hang up her “Louboutins” for good. It goes without saying that her music is horrendous along with the video and accompanying cd cover.

  59. NicoleAM says:

    I think she needs to give up the music thing. It was never terribly good to begin with and clearly hasn’t improved. I thought she was very good in Selena when I saw it years ago, but she really hasn’t made many solid films. And her acting isn’t great in her more recent work either. But she still looks really good.

  60. MymaJane says:

    @ Kevin

    Accidents can happen with professional dancers too. If you look at the video, it appears that she landed on her heels rather than the balls of her feet. With the height/force of the jump, coupled with the type of floor, it really had nothing to do with her physical fitness.

    i used to be a professional ballet dancer, and we had to always remind the theatre we performed in NOT to wax and polish the floors because it made it more slippery for our pointe shoes. Little things like that can make a big difference.

  61. Bambi says:

    I like the Louboutin font but wished the T looked crossed– is the quality of the photo bad? J-Lo font does look like Jello font– very unfortunate.

    All in all, this comeback wasn’t planned well. The songs aren’t good. Furthermore, no one has any money to buy Louboutins these days and I’m wondering if J-Lo also has money issues if she’s coming out with this crap?

    Tina Turner made her comeback when she was 45, but she had / has an amazing voice and she had an album (Private Dancer) that featured several good tracks.

    If I had young twins, not much talent and tons of money, I’d be a stay-at-home mom.

  62. Bete says:

    I’ve just noticed, because I’ve actually forced myself to watch the video, that she’s not even wearing Louboutins.

  63. Rochelle says:


    All I read is NEGATIVITY!!!, comment after comment! I mean give me a break. Stop hating on this woman for doing what she loves to do, and that is to PERFORM!!! If you don’t like it, change the dam channel! She must be doing something right, because I am sure she is laughing all the way to the
    bank, and I’m sure that her balance is way larger then you haters!!!
    I like the song, because I like her voice. The fact that after her fall, she got right up and jumped right back in step with her dancers, that shows you how much of a professional she is.
    Life is too short guys, be nice and be respectful to your fellow man/woman, and good things will come to you!!!!

  64. lambchops says:

    Why do women artists get 15 minutes of fame until they are considered too old after 30 and we have to look at Jagger still swaggering his bones all over the stage? Since when was J-Lo not a cheese ball and why can’t she continue being a cheese ball? It’s pop culture!

  65. Mickey says:

    Wow…Singing about shoes. Sadness.

  66. AC says:

    she looks great but it looks like a very dated picture…

  67. Prissa says:

    lambchops: “Jagger still swaggering his bones all over the stage”


  68. Munkey says:

    I just couldn’t make it through that atrocious song/video. And even though it would not be possible for me to care any less about this woman, I’m still here posting about how much her song sucks. Ugh.

  69. gg says:

    Lol @ Trillion!!

    @ Rochelle: The negativity I see in this song campaign is: “NOT CLASSY/EMBARRASSING”.

    That is what is wrong with “us people”.

    Jenny needs to go for something actually classy.

  70. Steve says:

    First of all, I’m not a J.lo.Does she have the best vocals?no! But who cares she sings her own way.Anyway I love the song because it’s so danceable!As far as “J.Lo” is concerned I am a little confused too because I thought she only wants be known as Jennifer Lopez.Anyway Ive worked for vogue India and China and with some other advertising corporates the cover art is great.Very “in” andsexy but not trashy!!!!!!The colour of the font is in that colour because louboutins shoes are in that colour.check the 2009 spriing/summer collection.

  71. Candy says:

    JLo is ugly period! ugly forehead and a big broke looking nose. And chicken legs.

  72. Jacqueline S Kurz-Dunn says:

    Butt and tummy ugly! What is it with people wearing way too tight clothing on their disgustingly fat bodies!
    It must be one of those realy bad cultural things!

  73. it looks really trashy.. but look at her booty!! wohoow!

  74. car says:

    what font is.

  75. Reggie says:

    Ugly, Ugly Ass and gut. Shaved booty and all. Go away J/lo.

  76. Krystal Herrera says:

    She is so ugly and has no class.She has good music but there is something strange I see in her.No offence but I think she is a man in disguise.and why does she need to have a big butt sorry that is a major turn off.J/Lo come back when you have class please.
