Jennifer Lopez – American actress & singer

Jennifer Lopez – FIFA World Cup Opening Ceremony – June 12, 2014

Jennifer Lynn Lopez (born July 24, 1969), often nicknamed J.Lo, is an American actress, singer, record producer, dancer, television personality, fashion designer and television producer. She is the richest person of Latin American descent in Hollywood according to Forbes, and the most influential Hispanic entertainer in the U.S. according to People en Español’s list of “100 Most Influential Hispanics”. She parlayed her media fame into a fashion line and various perfumes with her celebrity endorsement. Outside of her work in the entertainment industry, Lopez advocates human rights, vaccinations and is a supporter of Childrens Hospital Los Angeles.

World Cup opens with music, passion and Jennifer Lopez

Anyone who tuned in to the World Cup’s opening ceremony hoping to learn precisely what a World Cup opening ceremony is for would have come away slightly disappointed. Unlike, say, Olympic opening ceremonies they are not supposed to be any kind of reflection on the host country.

As many have pointed out, the lead singers of the anthem this year, Pitbull and Jennifer Lopez, seem to have been chosen in the spirit of this kind of international unity, seeing as neither are actually Brazilian: Pitbull was born in the US to Cuban parents and Lopez, albeit originally From The Block, is also American with Puerto Rican parents. But we’ll get back to that.

And then, there was Jennifer Lopez! Emerging from the giant centre-stage flower, like the caterpillar in Alice in Wonderland. There had been a brief moment of panic when it was announced that Lopez would not be making the World Cup owing to unspecified “production issues”. This may have been a realisation that the song she was to sing is an international laughing stock. Lopez then issued a correction, explaining, “I think people get anxious, especially with me and my schedule when I’m like, ‘Ah, OK, I can leave this day, that day, I don’t know if we can make it.’ ” Such a spontaneous gal, J-Lo. It must be a nightmare for her to sort an Ocado delivery.

She was joined by Pitbull and Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte, who was allowed to sing for approximately 30 seconds of the interminable song, We Are One. This song has been widely criticised for, on the one hand, being too Brazilian and, on the other, not being Brazilian enough. In regards to the former, critics say the music video relies too heavily on national stereotypes and old-fashioned rhythms. But to complain about an overuse of national stereotypes in international sport, let alone a Jennifer Lopez video, feels distinctly like reaching a little too hard for outrage (and let’s hope these people didn’t watch the opening ceremony with its recreation of the Amazon rainforest to capoeira dance moves).
