Jennifer Lopez: Sorry I performed for Turkmenistan leader

She's such a whore. You can dress her all up, put nice jewelry on her, but she's still a comman tramp. No excuses - she, and her team, knew who this guy is. This pitiful ' We didnt know he was considered a bad guy' lie, only makes it look worse. Miss no morals is so over. She's a cheap, whory, hunty, and deserves all the backlash she's starting to get. Just go suck on a cock, cause your miss hunty from the block.

So she performs for President Evil, keeps the money, and slams him after she's cashed the check.
She isn't violating anyone's human rights, but she sure is sleazy.

What's even sadder she only said this after the Turkmenistan leader said:
"I'm so sorry I had Jennifer Lopez perform for me. If I had seen her movies first, that never would have happened."

If you are sorry, put your money where your mouth usually is. Donate all that money you made for that event to a human rights organization.
Otherwise, shut the fuck up you lying whore. Buy your own damn cheese for that whine.

Such bullshit. JLo has no obligation to relinquish the gigs she's earned out of deference to other people's political views. I wonder how you would all feel if K-Pop stars were pressured into boycotting performances in the US to protest a warmongering country that constantly violates international law.

She knew the guy was a brutal dictator. She just didn't CARE. And she obviously thought if she were found out she'd just play the plausible deniability card and get away with it, while still cashing those checks.
All of these stars know what they're doing. You think she just hopped on a plane to Turkmenistan without her management knowing wtf that was?

That Chechen warlord (president) encourages men to take 3 wives. He pretends he's against bride kidnapping, but so far only a woman has gone to jail for bride abduction. The Chechen pres also approves of paintball attacks on women considered "immodestly dressed" by their male Islamic overlords. If for nothing else, a woman a should refuse to appear with the Chechen president because of the treatment of women in hs cave man, fundamemtalist muslim society.

My understanding is that she didn't perform FOR him. She was hired by the Chinese Petro company and he happened to be there. I doubt the Chinese Petro company send her a guest list and she and her team spent time vetting every attendee to determine whether or not they were warlords, evil Presidents, etc. Should they have? Probably. Would they have given JLo the guest list if she asked? Probably not, due to security reasons and they wouldn't want the document to leak.
They asked her to sing Happy Birthday and she said yes, probably on the fly as she wanted repeat business with this Petrol company so she just agreed to it without thinking through the consequences. It was a stupid mistake as he is a horrible man. But it wasn't like Hilary Swank and Beyonce performing FOR Gaddafi. That was literally like "Gaddafi requests the presence of Beyonce Knowles to perform her hit songs" and she was like "sign me up!"
Jennifer Lopez was blindsided and stupidly sang Happy Birthday to a horrible person. She should keep the money and be more careful next time.

No, the whole party was FOR him since it was his birthday. That's why they were all in attendance and that's why Lopez was hired.

Illogical R34. First of all J-low dose not need the money. She is rich beyond your wildest imagination. So we are really talking about symbolic truth, honesty and redemption.
If she said "fuck you bitches, I did what I did and I am what I am" then she should keep the money.
But you cant have it both ways. If you say "oh I made a mistake, didn't do it on purpose" then you need to do more then verbalize it, you need to correct the mistake.
Donate the money, honey. You were raised hard core Catholic girl, you know you are supposed to give until it hurts. Poverty is a virtue, wealth is a sin. Now be a good little Catholic girl and give all that money back and then some.

She ain't giving the money back. Who knows where it's going?:
Though not a practitioner herself, Jennifer Lopez spoke up on behalf of Scientology – and revealed that her father, David Lopez, is a follower – during a weekend interview with a Miami TV station.
"My dad has been a Scientologist for 20 years," Lopez, 37, told South Florida's NBC6. "It's weird people want to paint it in a negative way."
Lopez made her remarks while being asked about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' Nov. 18 "wedding of the decade" in Italy, which Lopez and her husband, Marc Anthony, attended. Besides the groom, Lopez's close friend, Leah Remini, is a Scientologist.
Asked for her response to some people's negative perception of Scientology, Lopez said, "I, myself, am Catholic. But it's just sad that people would look at it (Scientology) in that way."
After the interview aired, Lopez's rep, Leslie Sloane, said, "Jennifer is not a Scientologist, nor is she becoming a Scientologist.

I'm sure they've heard of it, used it in this case, and didn't care what came up. All they cared about was that "Jenny from the block" was getting paid $10 million. The plan was to backpedal after the fact and hope that the fans would fall for it.
