Surely she has enough money by now. I wish she would stop dressing like a hooker as well.

There are so many artists that do this. I blame the publicists and management more so than the singer themselves though. I doubt as if 90% of the time they even know what country they will be performing in, let alone who they are performing for. With that said, I don't think 90% of them would back out if they did know for that kind of money.

Seems to be a pattern with her though.....sounds like she would perform for the North Korean dictator bloke at the drop of a hat if he offered her enough money.

Sting, Beyonce, Hilary Swank. They're either willfully delusional, or thick as shit.

They aren't stupid. They just don't care. They don't see them as "sketchy people", they see dollar signs, a new house, a few new cars, a new swimming pool at the vacation home.

They care not a jot. Until word gets out that is. Then they blame it on the fact that they forgot to google said sketchy folks.

It's a payday. They don't give a toss about human rights and so forth. They'll sing for whoever gives them enough money.

Why single out J-Lo?

It's a known fact that the only way to make money in the music industry is performing for dictators and Russian mafia bosses.

I wonder how many regular people would turn down an offer for big bucks if they were in that position...

It's not about ignorance, it's about greed.

And not just J-lo either but a whole raft of Singers are or have been caught out ....Mariah , Usher , Sting etc ...Beyonce is particularly proactive in performing for dictators after causing controversy for performing for Mutassim Gadaffi in 2010 she then performed for Uzbekistan dictator Islam Karimov in 2012....saying she never knew of the human rights issues until it was pointed out to her after she sang , maybe she could have a chat to her mates at Amnesty and the UN .Her complete ignorance of political / social issues doesn't stop her from being a spokesperson for the UN on human rights . Its clear she like a lot of other singers and celebrities have no concern for human rights and use these organisations for PR purposes . Though I suppose in her defense she is really dim but Sting on the other hand....

She's performing for a big cash payout, seemingly uncaring of the character of the client. I think she's dressed appropriately

Money or just thick. She is from 'the block' though, she should know these things.

whats your point ? just because an ordinary poor person might accept the money then its ok for these people to ?

But they are not regular people are they ? they project themselves as "good" people ...support any trendy "worthy" cause going to enhance their ethical reputation but as shown time and time again they are the shallowest of the shallow.

It's up to them who they choose to perform for and to decide whether or not they value integrity or money more... But it does make a mockery of events such as the recent Chime For Change concert when J-Lo & Beyonce who have no problem performing for sketchy people show up to perform and campaign for women's rights.
