When I first saw that Jennifer Lopez's first single off her new album was called Louboutins, I honestly thought it was a joke. I couldn't imagine which one of her people would approve something like that. The song is below but I must warn you that it is incredibly tough to listen to. Maybe I am just getting old or maybe it is because it is Jennifer Lopez singing it or maybe because it is the most obnoxious title of a song ever, but I really, really dislike this song. I have made it through the first 1:37 of it and this is what she has said so far. She is tired of being a part-time lover which I took for mistress and so she is leaving. How is she leaving? On her Louboutins which she then repeats about ten times to really hammer the f**king point in that she is leaving on Louboutins. This of course is after the first fifteen seconds of the song tease us with something akin to a record scratch and more hints that more references to Louboutins are on the way. A whole song about showing the world how much money you have? Really? Or are you perhaps just rubbing it in everyone's face? Really? Well how about a line in there that says I'm leaving you so I can go have a film career where I can make classics like Gigli.
I have never had a song annoy me more. Maybe I am just cranky. I am hung over and the last thing I needed this morning was some superficial self entitled no talent hack to start singing about she is leaving on her Louboutins. I don't really give a f**k how she leaves, but her act is old and I am tired of her and her skeleton looking husband. Go hide in a corner somewhere and maybe in ten years or so we will be ready again for you after you get some humility and a CD that doesn't sound exactly like the crap you were peddling 15 years ago.
