Jennifer Lopez and hubby Marc Anthony have found a way to bask in Barack Obama’s glow — even though they didn’t publicly support him until after he got elected, reports the New York Post’s Page Six.
The gossip column reports Anthony agreed to sing and Lopez said she would “speak” at the Latino Inaugural Ball in DC on Jan. 18, two nights before the swearing-in. But some Latinos for Obama are furious that the wealthy couple didn’t support the Democratic nominee until he won.
One power player called them “vile opportunists for worming themselves into anything Obama related even though they had nothing to do with his win.”
According to the source, Anthony refused to perform for Obama during a crucial get-out-the-Latino-vote event in Orlando, Fla., two weeks before the election and Lopez refused to endorse Obama unless he called her himself, which he didn’t. The Orlando event went on without them and featured Bill Clinton and Jimmy Smits.
The Latino Ball, at Union Station, is scheduled to attract a list of boldface names, including Rosario Dawson, Wilmer Valderrama and Ugly Betty actor Tony Plana.
