JLo 2011 like JLo 1998?
X-Factor auditions took place in LA the other day and so far only one judge, in addition to Simon Cowell, has been confirmed. Still no word on who will be joining Cowell and LA Reid for the show’s American debut but UK tabloids keep saying that Cowell is pushing for Cheryl Cole. What’s the problem with Cheryl Cole?
Who’s Cheryl Cole?
Click here for E! Online’s report on how the judge search is going. You’ll note, her name isn’t even on their list. Apparently she’s not on JLo’s list either.
This is the JLo I love and miss. You give her a little bit of success, swell her head for five minutes, and suddenly her bitch comes out of her mouth, along with the truth. Or her version of it.
JLo was asked by Fabulous about Cheryl Cole. Here’s her response:
“Someone mentioned [Cheryl] to me yesterday. She is a singer, right? I don’t know much about her and I don’t know her music. But I would be happy to learn about it.” (Source)
This is masterful, don’t you think?
First she makes it clear that she doesn’t know Cheryl from a check out girl at the mall, and then she PATRONISES her by saying she’d be “happy” to “learn” about her music, like she’s doing her a favour!?!?
If this doesn’t fill you with delight, the Girl Sh-t that’s being thrown around, I worry that you may not know the meaning of Joy. It reminds me of Lopez’s amazing, AMAZING interview with Movieline back in 1998. She was, as she said then, at “the bottom of the A List actresses”. Fuelled by confidence and ego, and still green enough to speak her mind, the article is full of delicious finger snappy quotes – like how she made her agent go back to Universal and demand more money, like how she claims she beat out Sharon Stone for a part with Oliver Stone, like how Sandra Bullock was dumb for refusing to screen test with George Clooney on Out of Sight.
This is your lunch time reading today. I promise you won’t regret it.
Especially since the Jennifer Lopez of 1998 was not shy about sharing her catty ass feelings about many other actresses in the business. In a much less clever way than she did here with Cheryl Cole, but the spirit of it all, it’s the same.
If this is your first time ever reading these quotes, well I promise it will make your life. The whole thing is a giant “oh no she didn’t”.
JLo 1998 on Winona Ryder:
“I was never a big fan of hers. In Hollywood she’s revered, she gets nominated for Oscars, but I’ve never heard anyone in the public or among my friends say, ‘Oh, I love her.’ She’s cute and talented, though, and I’d like her just for looking like my older sister, Leslie.”
JLo 1998 on Gwyneth Paltrow:
“Tell me what she’s been in? I swear to God, I don’t remember anything she was in. Some people get hot by association. I heard more about her and Brad Pitt than I ever heard about her work.”
JLo 1998 on Salma Hayek:
“We’re in two different realms. She’s a sexy bombshell and those are the kinds of roles she does. I do all kinds of different things. It makes me laugh when she says she got offered Selena, which was an outright lie. If that’s what she does to get herself publicity, then that’s her thing. Columbia offered me the choice of Fools Rush In or Anaconda, but I chose the fun B-movie because the Fools script wasn’t strong enough.”
JLo 1998 on Madonna:
“Do I think she’s a great performer? Yeah. Do I think she’s a great actress? No. Acting is what I do, so I’m harder on people when they say, ‘Oh, I can do that—I can act.’ I’m like, ‘Hey, don’t spit on my craft.’”
JLo 1998 on Cameron Diaz:
“A lucky model who’s been given a lot of opportunities I just wish she would have done more with. She’s beautiful and has a great presence, though, and in My Best Friend’s Wedding, I thought, ‘When directed, she can be good.’”
Goddamn this article makes me happy.
