In the news yesterday that Jennifer Lopez was thisclose to signing on to be a judge on American Idol, was this little quote. “Jennifer Lopez is the key to re-energizing American Idol.” Wow, if you are counting on Jennifer Lopez to save the show then I think you have come to the wrong person. How can she contribute anything other than four or five appearances from her scrawny husband, a lip synched dance number once a season and a 21 squints a show.
She has not had a hit movie in years and years. Actually, has she ever had a hit. Oh yeah that Wedding Planner thing made some money didn't it? How did Anaconda do? It must have done ok, because there was a sequel or two, but the snake did a better job of acting. Her last hit album? Forever ago. Hmm, well in that regard she is kind of like Paula. However, while Paula may not have been the world's greatest singer, she was nice and provided a perfect counter balance to Simon. Yes, she looked like a lush, but she was like your Aunt Sue who hit the egg nog too hard, but no one minded because she was harmless and never in a bad mood. It worked.
Jennifer Lopez as the key? Better not count on that.
