JENNIFER LOPEZ "JENNY FROM THE BLOCK"
I DESERVE to have this one in my head, scratching the furniture in my ears, dragging it's car keys along my aural bodywork. There are some singers whom I find so unlikeable, that it's almost a joy to watch them. Like Cher doing The Shoop Shoop Song. That one was awful. Anything with Ja Rule on it. Arse. Jamiroquai. Arse again. I enjoy disliking these people. I can't explain it. My life would be better if I could just ignore them. But I can't. And Ms. Lopez's latest is one that has lodged itself up there. Not cos it's an awful song - and let's be clear, it IS an awful song - just the message it gives out. That's what I hate. She's still normal Jenny apparently. Hold on. Look at your life, your Hollywood actor boyfriend, the expensive video you are making, your movies and albums. And you are still Jenny from the block, eh? Hmmm. I bet your love really doesn't cost a thing either...
