Jennifer Lopez strayed way off the block to sing for a dictator.
We have a lot of questions about this item.
Jennifer Lopez is under fire for performing a private show in the former Soviet bloc country of Turkmenistan (including a rendition of “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” a la Marilyn Monroe) for the country’s leader, Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow — who is apparently not a cool guy.
And by not a cool guy, we mean that Human Rights Watch have named him as being "among the most repressive [leaders] in the world” and that he’s known for rampantly violating human rights, torturing people and showing up to parties with just one six-pack, for himself. (Just kidding with that last one, we’ve never partied with the dude. Jenny from the Block, however, apparently has.)
And now here come the questions. How does J.Lo even know the leader of Turkmenistan? How was this creepy (oh, we’re positive it was creepy) little private show orchestrated? How do you pronounce Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow?? We are very confused.
