The Word: Put some pants on, Jennifer Lopez

Oh, hello, Jennifer Lopez’s butt. I guess it has been a while since we (and Pitbull) have paid attention to it.

Jennifer Lopez is ridiculous.

I put up with her Fiat commercials. I admit I was a little thrown when the car appeared in her “Papi” music video (and a 30-second trailer for the video), but I dealt with it. But did a Fiat 500 really have to appear onstage with her during her performance of “Papi” during Sunday night’s American Music Awards? Really? What’s next? A staged paparazzi shot with one, strolling arm and axle on the beaches of Cabo?

It’s just that everything lately with the singer/star has been so in-your-face. I realize she is trying to stage a comeback and is trying to refill her bank account, but it’s reaching saturation point.
Like, what was up with that skintight Britney Spears-esque bodysuit she was wearing at the AMAs? We get it. You’re 42 and still super hot — but come on, put some pants on. You’re a mom now; you can be sexy without showing off your lady parts. She is acting like a slutty reality TV contestant instead of the true star she is.

Another case in point? She was sure to leak her behavior at a celebrity-packed AMA after-party to Us Weekly. The magazine reported that Lopez retreated to a private booth with her new boy toy, dancer Casper Smart, where she was seen grinding on his lap, rubbing his head and kissing him.

This isn’t to say that Lopez shouldn’t have a good time now that she’s single and on the prowl. She gets a hearty “You go, girl!” for that. But she should do so within reason. And, for God’s sake, leave your endorsements of Fiat for the commercials.

Kutcher tries to buy Moore’s love

Speaking of cars, just before Demi Moore announced she was divorcing him Ashton Kutcher reportedly made a last-ditch effort to save their marriage by buying her a brand-new car, according to TMZ. Sources say Kutcher spent upwards of $100,000 for a 2012 Lexus, ordering it Nov. 9 — two days before Moore’s birthday. It’s unclear if Moore accepted the gift or if Kutcher had to return it. With all the rumors about their threesomes going around, it probably would have been more apt if he’d given her an Escort.
