Jennifer Lopez Debuts Cover Artwork for ‘AKA’ – And I Just CAN’T With It

I was of the understanding that Jenny From the Block didn’t enjoy being referred to as “JLo“…maybe it was Skeletor who didn’t like it, since (circa 1999) Puff Daddy gave her the moniker. Well, JLo is big and loud and the album is named “A.K.A.” So nothing is what it seems. Actually, it is–and we’ve seen it before.  But this time, she’s wearing red patent leather.

The mother to twins Emme and Max, 6, is shown with her hair pulled back into a ponytail on the top of her head. She accessorized the body-baring look with bold gold jewelry, matched to the cover lines of the artwork.

Lopez teased the image via Twitter, saying simply that the project was “coming soon.” The album is expected to hit stores on June 17.

The promotional photo follows the sexual nature of Lopez’s recent releases. She introduced the album with the single “I Luh Ya Papi” with French Montana, which includes lyrics like, “Got that hourglass for you, baby, look at these legs / No brakes, go green, no red / If you wanna kill the body, gotta start with the head / Put it on you, I’mma need about 4-5 beds.”

The “First Love” singer released her last studio album, Love?, in 2011. While the album performed well for Lopez, her most successful venture to date was her 2001 record J. Lo, which was certified multi-platinum and topped album charts worldwide.

Blech.  “Ohhmmm, I luh ya Papi”?? Nope. If I wanna listen to JLo, I’ll watch this and sing the background “yeah, yeah, yeah” part like a pro:

So, which one of you told me the “voice” you hear on all of JLo’s albums ISN’T REALLY HER singing? C’mon!  That’s really juicy.

Are Pharrell Williams and Nick Jonas Headed To ‘American Idol’?

Mimooo in Orange!

 

US Magazine, who has been on top of a lot of things recently, is reporting that rapper and producer Pharrell Williams and one third of the Jonas Brothers, Nick Jonas, could be new judges for ‘American Idol‘ along with Mariah Carey.

Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler are out, with mainstay Randy Jackson moving to a “mentor” position on the show. Does that mean they’ll be getting rid of Jimmy Iovine, that’s pretty much his job on the show besides being the baseball cap wearing curmudgeon. Jonas and Williams are the frontrunners for the two remaining judging positions according to multiple insiders. “Nick is pretty close to signing to be the Idol judge,” one says. “They flew him in to L.A. last week for final meetings.” Jonas is the lead singer in his brother’s band and spent four months on Broadway in How to Succeed In Business Without Really Trying. Producers think he can bring a younger demo to the show but do kids still care about him?

Pharrell is said to still be negotiating a contract, “Everything is looking good, but they’re still working out details,” says an insider. He has worked with some of the biggest names in the biz, including Jay-Z, Madonna, Gwen Stefani and X Factor‘s Britney Spears. I think he would be a great addition to the show, and you know we love Skateboard P here at DiC so we would love to see him on TV every week. Also, it means that the Idol’s winning song will be a lot better being produced by Pharrell and maybe co-written by Mariah.
