Jennifer Lopez aka J. Lo is taking a page from ex-boyfriend Sean Combs/Puff Daddy/Puffy/P. Diddy/Diddy’s playbook.
According to gossip blog I Don’t Like You In That Way, the 38-year old pop star has demanded People magazine stop referring to her as “J. Lo” from here on out. Must be that whole “I’m a mommy now, so my career must take a serious turn” thing that’s been happening all over Hollywood lately.
Lopez recently struck a $6 million deal with People that will allow the magazine to be the first media outlet to publish photos of her newborn twins, Max and Emme. TMZ reports that Lopez included the “J. Lo” stoppage as a clause in her contract with the magazine, along with another clause that will allow her husband and fellow pop star (really?) Marc Anthony to be the photographer for the shoot.
Perhaps she is clinging to a twisted sense of hope that allows her to believe that People magazine has become the popular cheerleader of reporting entertainment news. So, if they stop calling her “J. Lo,” all other media outlets will immediately stop, as well, in the hopes of being as cool as People. Good luck with that. (Someone forward the memo to Ann Curry.)
Numerous reports have surfaced over the last two weeks since J. Lo–excuse me–Lopez gave birth to her twins that the couple spent over $1.4 million on their pregnancy. I suppose they are just trying to make their money back by pimping out their children’s faces.
