Jennifer Lopez Promises Hot Duets With Enrique-
It’s still surprising that this is Jennifer Lopez‘s very first solo tour since she first started her entertainment career 20 years ago. But don’t expect a rookie performance from her. She has a tour veteran in her corner with Enrique Iglesias and recently revealed that she plans to rely on him for more than just support.
J. Lo has promised a steamy duet or two with her tour mates Enrique and the reggaeton group Wisin Y Yandel, who will flip-flop headlining the tour with Lopez. Her ultimate goal for this show, which kicks off in July and ends in August, is to give the fans everything they want to see from her and then a little bit more. No matter the language, she wants to go there.
“All the hits, lots of dancing, all the stuff they love. But some new surprises,” Jenny said of her upcoming tour. “Lot of energy, lots of great music, obviously. A little bit of English, a little bit of Spanish, a little bit of everything I think that our fans really want.”
The first report of the tour claimed it was a worldwide showing that planned to reach 60 cities and four continents. Still no word on whether she plans to take this further, but the beginning looks fierce!
Still plenty of chances to win on AMP Radio and ampradio.com. Keep listening.
The Wanted Spill On Odd Treatment from Britney Spears-
Clearly the guys from UK boy band, The Wanted, like to tell people how they feel about everything, even when they are legally bound to not. The latest dish from the boys in the band takes aim at yet another Mickey Mouse alum and 90’s revival pop icon, Britney Spears.
According to The Wanted, who opened up for Spears a few times, they were not allowed to look at Britney. Seemingly under no circumstances. They say the rule was enforced to the point of them having to turn and face a wall when the “I Wanna Go” starlet walked by them backstage.
And yes, this is just days after first calling Christina Aguilera a “bi*ch” and then almost apologizing for it. Drama seems to follow these boys, but if what they say is the case, then Brit should maybe explain her diva-tude to the boys who were just trying to get their shine on.
It’s likely no one in N*Sync or Backstreet made her turn her back to them as they walked by when they were on tour together, so it’s surprising she would do it to them. But then again, Brit’s world is unimaginable and she probably isn’t quick to trust just anyone.
Still, The Wanted have been running off at the mouth with this news, which is maybe not the best move for an up and coming group. But when they tell it, we can understand the frustration.
“We signed a confidentiality thing that we should never say anything about what happened, but let’s tell it anyway,” said band member Tom Parker.
“I was in the hallway with me tour manager,” continued mate, Siva Kaneswaran ” Basically we were looking with a laptop, trying to get WiFi, and we were facing the middle of the hallway. Her bouncers came down with her and told us to face the wall . . .”
“As Miss Spears is walking through,” Parker added. “We’re like, come on!”
Their hit single “Glad You Came” peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100.
We can’t wait to see what comes next, and we don’t just mean the music either…
Do you think Britney was out of line or should The Wanted have not told in the first place? Tell us below!
Wiz Khalifa Busted For Marijuana Twice in 10 Days-
Not one person is surprised to hear that Wiz Khalifa was cited (and released-luckily) for Marijuana. We are, however, surprised at where it happened and that it happened two different times within 10 whole days of each other.
The first incident went down last week in Nashville, Tennessee. Wiz was staying at a Holiday Inn (of all places!) when he heard a knock on the door from security and police officers that had received complaints about a marijuana aroma coming from the room.
He tried throwing the herbs out a window after police arrived but he eventually gave himself up and admitted to the illegal behavior. The cops recovered the discarded joint and cited the rapper for possession.
Then two days ago, Wiz was busted again for the drug during a search of the rapper and his tour bus right before his show in North Carolina. This time they reportedly found 11.97 grams of marijuana on the bus and again, the Pittsburgh native was cited for possession. He will have to return to court there at a later date.
Can you believe it? Twice in 10 days?
We are sure this is no deterrent to Wiz, who is more than open about his love for Mary Jane. In fact, earlier this year, Wiz joined veteran rap group, Cypress Hill at SmokeOut Music Festival, which is an organization that lobbies for the legalization of Marijuana.
Fight the power, Khalifa!
