Jennifer Lopez can’t sing, dance & wear a catsuit at the same time


Uh, I think I’m getting a yeast infection just from looking at these photos of Jennifer Lopez performing at the 2010 San Remo Italian Music Festival on Friday. Yes, she’s wearing a leather catsuit (that she looks like she’s about to bust out of). True, this leather catsuit isn’t as bad as the nearly-nude, saggy-butt one she wore on New Year’s Eve. But it still kind of sucks. At some point, I do have to ask La Lopez: why the catsuits? Can’t you find a cute outfit that isn’t a onesie (that won‘t give you a yeast infection)?


If you thought the outfit was the worst part, you’re mistaken. There’s video of Jennifer performing a medley of her songs, and it’s… rough. I suppose I could give Jennifer credit for attempting to sing live. But she should know by now that she’s not the best live singer, and that hearing her sing live isn’t why people come. Here’s the video below, and a summary by the NYDN:

J.Lo’s cat-suit look apparently has nine lives, or at least two.

After stalking into the new year in a sparkly body-hugging cat-suit, Jennifer Lopez’s booty set tongues wagging again Friday night – this time in a skin tight black leather suit accessorized with studs and laces.

The curvy 41-year-old singer, who was performing on the fourth night of the 2010 San Remo Italian Music Festival, seems to have maintained her stamina and her curves since the New Year.

Lopez sang a medley of her major hits: “Jenny from the Block,” “Waiting for Tonight,” “Love Don’t Cost a Thing,” “Get Right” and “Lets Get Loud.”

No doubt constricted by the tight leather, she didn’t perform highly complicated moves, settling for a lot of hip swiveling and stomping. But that was probably enough for the male population.

The highlight of the performance had Lopez and her back-up dancers twirling canes for a Charlie Chaplin-esque number.

The mother of two took to the stage twice for the festival’s 60th anniversary. During her second act she wore gold tasseled military regalia and sang “What Is Love?” – a single from her new album, “Love?”

At the end of the show, Lopez smiled under a sea of confetti and shouted breathlessly, “You didn’t know I could do that did you?”

“You didn’t know I could do that did you?” Uh… yes, we did know that you couldn’t sing live and dance in time all while wearing a yeasty leather catsuit. But, seriously, I love that Jennifer tried. I give her credit for trying. She’s funny when she tries. I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I’ll say it again: I am not a Jennifer Lopez hater. I kind of like her and all of her diva antics. I get enjoyment from how she’s so full of herself and how she thinks we’ve all been sitting around, praying for her musical/dancing/acting/fashion comeback. And in some ways, we have been sitting around waiting for it. Because Jennifer is usually newsworthy. Even if it’s the bad kind of newsworthy.

    Oh god, thost stupid pants. Why do they have to go up so high like that? It makes her look even more pear shaped than she already is, and not in a good way. Yikes.

  2. Ana says:

    The singing isn’t bad, she just sounds out of breath. When I say it’s not bad, I mean for her level of talent. She seems like she’s gonna bend over wheezing in the middle of all the action.

    It’s kind of sad she’s forever performing her old music. She only performed one of her new singles. That Get Right song is truly horrible, I’m not sure what that whiny intrument is, but it should have not be allowed in the song.

    The outfit, well just further proof that Jennifer has no taste. And no clue of how to dress for her body type.

    I swear I’ve heard her say, “You didn’t know I could do that, did you?” before. What’s up with that?

    I don’t hate her, I want her to succeed. It’s just aggravating to see her barely keeping her head over water.

  3. Giraffe99 says:

    I think J – Lo is trying to stay relevant in the sexy diva stakes, what with much younger and hotter competition out there, Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Shakira etc.

    She really needs to hang up the whole onesie thing, and be a little classy about it all, she is just coming across desperate.

  4. Relli says:

    She needs to stop and focis in on direction and somehow find a way to get better ( I am leaning towards acting in rom com). Lean towards her strengths. Because the cat suits are just getting embarrasing and she is starting to renind me of my 5th grade teacher who wore polyster liesure suits all through the 80’s.

  5. lena says:

    Jenny, honey…just no, stop it now…go to your room

  6. Bruce says:

    Jennifer no longer has a plump backside as seen by the NYE performance. Because so many people commented on this, she is now wearing padding to plump and round her buttocks. Her look nor her performance is working to keeping her relevant in the music industry.

  7. Nadia says:

    I still think she is so very beautiful.

  8. wtf says:

    uhmmm am I the only one that thinks she was lip syncing to a pre-recorded medley? Her voice doesn’t change at all while she’s hopping around, which is almost physically impossible. Don’t get me wrong, I think she has a mediocre voice, but ya’ll might be giving her more credit than she deserves.

  9. MCV says:

    I kind of think she was lip-syncing too, or she was singing live but with prerecorded music in the background to support her weak voice. She was totally out of sync with the backup dancers too, and looked like she was going to pass out at the end of her performance. I’m sure she’s in much better shape than I am, so I’m not trashing her, I give her credit for trying. But if you can’t keep up with the competition, then it’s time to retire, not keep humiliating yourself by desperately trying to claw your way back.

  10. Trying. Seems like that’s the only she does these days. Better than retirement, perhaps?

  11. Emily says:

    The “you didn’t know I could do that, did you” quote was something that comes up at the end of one of her earlier songs. It might be Let’s Get Loud, I’m not sure. It’s sort of in the background noise of the song. And I have no idea how I remember that!

  12. Dhavy says:

    My ears and eyes hurt

    She should just stop singing, it’s not like she has such a great voice and make a comeback and be great since she was never good to start with and the asset she had is no longer perky. She should just stick to making a a few somewhat funny movies as before so she can stay afloat

    Her ego is too big though to hang the towel

  13. Lil says:

    She seems tired to me…

  14. michellllle says:

    The close-up stills of the get up are god awful, especially the lacing but at a distance, whilst dancing I thought she looked good, fitter than before the twins. Can’t say her voice or moves seemed any worse than before. Not a real fan but I always thought she was beautiful & at least while performing she still looks good.

  15. Eileen Yover says:

    Blech, just THINKING of all the sweaty, not-so-fresh things going on in there gives me the heebie jeebies!!

  16. Felicia says:

    Wow. I think she was very successful in her career and has earned the right to not do this kind of thing anymore. It makes me uncomfortable, kind of like when I was a kid and my parents tried to act cool. I already loved them and just felt they needed to stop trying so hard to be something they weren’t. Relax. Go home and be a mom and wife. If that doesn’t do it for you, hock some stuff like other famous people do. Leave on a high note.

  17. meow says:

    Everytime I see a woman dressed in tight pants, I think yeasty beasty.

  18. Kat says:

    Was the whole “can’t sing, can’t dance” thing meant to be a secret previously?

    Retire, already.

  19. Kelaa Khaa says:

    Big egos = the music that retail employees are tortured with.

  20. mc says:

    @wtf – She was totally lip-synching. There was absolutely nothing live about her vocals.
    I kind of feel bad for her. She obviously has no idea of how silly she looks.

  21. Bete says:

    She will never realise that her body shape isn’t suited to catsuits.

  22. CB Rawks says:

    No wonder all her men are douches. They are completely necessary.

  23. SolitaryAngel says:

    Haha, her stylist must REALLY hate her!! Jlow, please retire. Enough already.

  24. Chana says:

    Getting the creepy crawlies just thinking about the field day bacteria are having in her naughty region.

    And she could never sing, poor thing. She’s quite funny though so perhaps it’d be a good idea for her to stick to romantic comedies. She’s done some cute ones.

  25. Silvia says:

    What’s the problem with that hole near her boobs? Looks like it’s going to rip open…

    Nah, terrible outfit!

  26. ogechi says:

    I honestly believe that she looks cute.

  27. Michelle says:

    Not a fan, but I think she looks fantastic.

  28. Toe says:

    What we all have to admit is that she looks Much better in this outfit than the newyears…err..sparkly thingy.
    She never was the best singer out there and you cant expect her to dance like it’s nothing in high heels AND sing at the same time.
    She was singing some of the time.
    Overall I liked her performance.

  29. happymom says:

    I really think it’s that god awful outfit that’s constricting her moves. I’m no JLo fan-but she can dance (usually).

  30. Beth says:

    I’m not planning on buying it but when does Jennifer’s album come out? It’s odd that she’s been performing and releasing singles for months without a cd coming out.

  31. lucy2 says:

    High waisted is not the look for her.

  32. bite me says:

    Love La Lopez been listening to What is Love all weekend

  33. Rachum says:

    not to fond of her music to be honest but I would kill for that body!

  34. CeeCee12 says:

    All of it reeks of Eau de Try too hard.

  35. snapdragon says:

    she’s so pretty…why does she have to dress like a hooker at a sex club? not good at all.

  36. TG says:

    I know I am in the minority here but I have never liked those singers who sing with a microphone ball in their mouth so they can do all these elaborate dances with their back up dancers. It always looks like a cheerleading competition or something out of a high school routine. And now Shakira is going the route of these other boring performers since she is trying to concur the American charts. Backup dancers and stupid futuristic looks. At least JLo is keeping it last century. LOL

  37. EMV says:

    it’s just BAD

  38. Kim says:

    Shes trying WAYYY to hard to be Beyonce.

  39. lola says:

    totally out crazy what is she thinking someone go tell that woman that she is a has been plsss

  40. Alexa says:

    She’s gorgeous as always!

  41. Lorena says:

    J.Lo!! NO NO NO!, you were sooo good back in the day, we have always known you can’t sing, but at least you had good videos, great coreography, and the music was fairly playable, but this!?? what is it? No cariño you need to find your own style it looks like you are imitating Beyonce or Lady Gaga, they’re above you sweetie; BOTH! of them can sing (LIVE) and what else?? put on a great show,…you need to come back to the classic, simple, and creative Jennifer, It looks like you’re trying to hard…

  42. Bec says:

    I kinda love vintage JLo. If you watch some of her old live performances (live, as in dancing) she has so much more energy and it seems so much more natural to her.

    In this performance she just looks like its all to hard. She looks really happy at the end of it, so good for her. No way in hell I could get up and do that!

  43. Olivia says:

    Okay, first of all, to all you haters out there, who are saying stuff about J-Lo, you need to recognize a couple of things. First, she is most likely better than your sucky artists you like, and second if you dont like her, you dont know music, got it? You dont need to be saying all this stuff, it’s not right, she’s the best singer out there, you people can’t sing like she can.

  44. lindsay says:

    j-lo is a HAS BEEN! she hasnt done anything relevant in close to a decade! shes old now, she CANT SING and shes just past her prime. theres too many younger, hotter, more talented chicks out there that people are into. nobody cares about j-lo anymore. she needs to just give it up!
