The Word: J-Lo versus the World

Jennifer Lopez and husband Marc Anthony are coming to your TV. The two have announced their new show — “Q’Viva! The Chosen,” a reality show featuring Lopez and Anthony traveling the Americas in search of singers and dancers. Their search will be filmed in three languages and broadcast simultaneously across 21 countries in North America, Central America and South America.

“This is a show for the 21st century with an unprecedented global and local story,” the website Hollywood Deadline reports Lopez as saying. “The Latin culture is a tapestry that is rich in passion, tradition and artistry. We are going to places where all of this talent lives and wouldn’t have otherwise been discovered. This journey for me and Marc is going be exciting and groundbreaking.”

Ambitious! It is my dear hope that somewhere out there they find the Mexican Sanjaya. I bet that guy is awesome.

50 is funny?

It looks like rapper 50 Cent launched a new humor website yesterday, www.thisis50comedy.com. Although information is scant on what exactly the site is, an introduction said, verbatim: “This is 50 Comedy is intended to expose the world-wide web subscribers to the cutting-edge humor of the nations funniest comedians. The show will be hosted by Young Jack Thriller from Thisis50.com ‘So Disrespectful’ segment.”
