Britain’s got talent. It’s also got Jennifer Lopez’s bum. And her front bum.

JLo appeared last night on “Britain’s Got Talent,” where she performed her new single. It wasn’t her music, however, that people were talking about. The singer appeared in a sort of leather thong leotard that left most of her ample assets in full view — especially when she knelt down toward the camera, crotch-first. And some of the English public aren’t happy with the display — Ofcom, the English FCC, says it’s received complaints about her performance, according to the Daily Mail.

“Britain’s Got Talent” judge Simon Cowell might have spent too long in sinful America, because he had no problem with her look: “Seriously, JLo. If anyone wants to know how you do it. That’s how you do it,” he said. “Seriously world class.”

Pitbull also recently expressed his admiration for JLo. ”Jennifer is a hard worker, very professional, gorgeous — and she’s a walking empire. Anytime I’m around her, I’m watching, learning, studying. It’s a natural combination, like a student and teacher. I’m a student all day. I think it would be an honor for Jennifer to watch me grow and say, ‘That kid did learn,’” he said.
