Jennifer Lopez: 'Waiting for Tonight' was awesome...but it might be time to stop singing

Posted on

On last night’s American Music Awards, Jennifer Lopez debuted both her new single, “Louboutins,” and her excellent reflexes, which were on display after she bit it onstage and then deftly popped back up. Still, the whole performance yielded only one reaction from me: J. Lo needs to move on from her recording career. She had some fun, catchy songs (“If You Had My Love,” “Love Don’t Cost a Thing”), but trying to regain musical relevance by singing about pricey high-heels just seems a little sad. I say focus on getting the movie career back on track (I would weep with joy if she reunited with Out of Sight co-star George Clooney and director Steven Soderbergh!). Don’t worry about the fans of your music—we will always have the memory of your best song/video, “Waiting for Tonight,” to get us through the day.  As far as I’m concerned, dancing in the jungle amid lasers is a fine musical legacy.
