Jennifer and Marc Movie

Friday, July 30th, 2004

From RateTheMusic.com:

Superstar Jennifer Lopez is planning to star in the screen version of Puerto Rican jazz superstar Hector Lavoe’s life story – alongside new husband Marc Anthony.

J.Lo, 34, is keen to co-star with her salsa singer spouse in the big screen biopic, despite the critical mauling she received when she appeared opposite her previous beau Ben Affleck in Gigli last year.

Lopez says, “Lavoe’s kind of like a Billie Holiday, a tragic singer. It’s a love story between a husband and wife.”


Looks like they will be appearing together on screen. Then again they also say Jennifer is 34 🙂

Mom, Guadalupe, Still Gambling In Atlantic City

Tuesday, July 27th, 2004

Jennifer Lopez’s mother, Guadalupe, was seen last Friday in Atlantic City again at the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa – playing the same slot machine that won her $2.1 million a few months ago. After leaving the Borgata she went to restaurant Old Homestead steakhouse for a sirloin and some wine. One visitor at the restaurant was quoted as saying, “[Guadalupe] said she doesn’t like Marc Anthony and said she far preferred Ben Affleck.”

Lopez Childproofs Miami Home

Tuesday, July 27th, 2004

Thanks to Joy for this news submission!

Now that Jennifer is a step-mom of three children, she’s had to take measures to make sure her home is a safe environment for the children when they visit.

“Jennifer’s Miami digs were her ultimate bachelorette pad. But now that she’s going to be a stepmom – as well as hopefully a mother herself – she’s transforming the place from a party pad to a family home.”

MTV Viewer’s Choice Award

Tuesday, July 27th, 2004

Rumors: Album Details Revealed: “Time Passes By”

Monday, July 19th, 2004

We’ll let you decide if this is true or not:

Much thanks to AJ again for this! The “Let It Flow (On The Floor)” details seemed authentic, and this certainly does too. THIS IS A MUST READ!

Tentative tracklisting for album “Time Passes By” (Now changed to “Jennifer Lopez” apparently)

01. Bronx Bound Interlude
02. Let It Flow (On The Floor)
03. Stayed Too Long
04. Runaway (Duet with Marc Anthony)
05. Sway (Theme from Miramax Motion Picture “Shall We Dance”)
06. The Heat (Duet with Usher)
07. If Only You Knew
08. Time Passes By
09. Castle Hill Interlude
10. The Next Stop
11. Back And Forth
12. I’m Getting Used To You
13. Juntos Tu Y Yo
14. Sacudimiento (Sway)
15. Aye Que Calor
16. Last Stop Interlude

AJ also told us 10 out 13 of the songs were co-written by Jennifer Lopez, with the other 3 being the interludes obviously. Writing credits goes to Corey Rooney, Sean (P. Diddy) Combs, Marc Anthony, Walter Afanasieff and Diane Warren.

Album producers: Corey Rooney, Walter Afanasieff, Rich Shelton, Troy Oliver and Marc Anthony.

More “Sway” Info:
“Sway” will the end-title song for the “Shall We Dance” soundtrack. “Let It Flow (On The Floor)” was going to be released on the soundtrack as well, but at the last minute, it was decided to not be included in the film or soundtrack. “Sway” will not be released as a single either. Miramax representatives said they did not want another “Gigli” or “Bennifer” image to haunt the movie or soundtrack. If you didn’t know, Jennifer recorded “Baby I Love U!” for the “Gigli” soundtrack, but Sony would not release the track to the producers, which meant it was going to be added to her “This Is Me…Then” CD.

“Let It Flow (On The Floor)” Info:
As it looks, “Let It Flow” is what we in the record industry call a prerelease single. It’s a single to sort of test the waters. Basically, Epic released the song to the Internet to find out just how many people downloaded it and requested it on the radio. So far, according to Kazaa, 3,498 people downloaded the file on their network. That is not counting other websites who posted the single. The single leaked is the pre-mastered version. A mastered version of the single, duration 3:32, will be “leaked” in 2 weeks. The male back-up vocalist is Paul Anthony, from the Full Force gang. If you didn’t know, the track samples the hook of “I Wonder If I Take You Home” from the 80’s spanish club group Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam.

“Let It Flow” video and Album Photo Shoot Info:
At this time, according to Jenny’s management team, there is no video for the song, unless it makes its way to high market radio stations, i.e., New York, Miami, Chicago, and LA. If and when there is a video filmed, it most likely will be directed by McG, who expressed an interest. Photo shoot for the album will be taking place in August, courtesy of Patrick Demarchelier.

SonyBMG will be promoting the hell out of this new CD, as it is the last CD under the old Epic/Sony contract that Jennifer has. As of today, we have not received word if she will resign. I do know that she was offered a new 3 album contract that included a “vanity” label and music production company. I do know she is shopping around. Warner Bros. also offered the same, but more money of course. So as soon as I find out, I will let you guys know.


Well, that’s the word from AJ! Credit goes to them for this plethora of information!

Rumors: New “Let It Flow (On The Floor)” Details!

Monday, July 19th, 2004

Yes, that’s the official name of the song apparently thanks to AJ. They also said the song WAS recorded in 2004 and is NOT from “On The 6” but was actually recorded for “Shall We Dance” and then removed from the soundtrack because they didn’t want “another Gigli.” AJ also said Epic Records actually leaked the song onto Kazaa and is not leftover material. AJ also provided us with lyrics (which I’ve updated and is UNCENSORED!) and credits to who wrote the song:

Written by. C. Rooney/J. Lopez/P. Anthony/J. Smith/L. Velez

Album Info and Lingerie Line

Sunday, July 18th, 2004

Thanks to mel for these submissions!

P. Diddy Helping On Upcoming Album
P. Diddy is once again helping JLo on her upcoming album. He has reportedly written one track and produced another and still enjoy working together and remain close friends. Lopez was quoted as saying, “I love and admire him. He is a musical genius and I have no problems in working with him.” Read the article here. It does, however, mention a February release date which seems to contradict the official web site from Sony.

Preview of JLo Lingerie Line
On www.figleaves.com there are the first glimpses of the JLo Lingerie line. Put “jlo” into the search box on the web page and press Search. It’s not much, but the line will be released on Jen’s birthday-24th July. Check it out!
