JLo.net Looking For Editors and Site News

Tuesday, December 21st, 2004

JLo.net is looking for additional news editors for the web site. You should be able to find news and use grammatically correct English in your postings. As a new album is nearing release, more and more news is coming forth and harder to keep up with.

There is no pay involved, but those selected will be updating the front page of the web site and be given a JLo.net e-mail address. No HTML knowledge is required, but previous work is a plus!

Any inquiries and signups can be done on the Contact page. We are also looking for a few non-news related jobs, so if interested, contact us there as well with what you can contribute. 🙂


On a seperate note, don’t forget that all comments now undergo moderation. There is no need to resubmit comments if they do not appear. An adminstrator will review it when it’s at top of the queue.

Also, two media files have been removed from the site (mostly because of excessive direct linking):

– The Jennifer Lopez ft. P. Diddy spoof
– The Fabulous Life of Jennifer Lopez (Part 3)

Both of these files have been on the web site way long enough so that everyone should have them by now anyway.

GIGLI NAMED IN INJURY LAWSUIT

Saturday, December 18th, 2004

GIGLI, the monumental flop movie which brought former couple JENNIFER LOPEZ and BEN AFFLECK together, is caught up in the midst of a personal injury lawsuit.

A woman is suing the producers of the film for damages resulting from alleged personal injury, which she says occurred near the Santa Monica, California, set.

In the suit filed on 9 December (04), ETHEL HIGLEY claims she fell after being “temporarily blinded” by sun reflectors, purportedly set up by the film-makers so the paparazzi wouldn’t be able to get shots of Lopez and Affleck kissing between scenes.

Higley says she has been unable to work, and sustained “pain and suffering” as a result of the alleged incident.

Spokespeople for REVOLUTION STUDIOS say they are unable to comment on the suit.

Friday, December 17th, 2004

Rapper NAS is so furious 50 CENT attacked his duet with Latina beauty JENNIFER LOPEZ, he’s threatened to destroy the hip-hop star’s career.

Nas explains, “50 has been saying some s**t since he came out in 2002. He said I did a song with Jennifer Lopez and I wasn’t supposed to because he did a song with her.

“So he’s like a kid living in a hip-hop fantasy world. J.Lo is a friend of mine, if she wants to do a record, I’m doing a record with her.

“50 was like a little brother to me. But 50 need realise the last n**ger who went after me retired, and he’s on an R+B tour now. Think about that.”

J.LO’S PAYCUT TO ‘PROVE’ HERSELF

Friday, December 10th, 2004

JENNIFER LOPEZ took a huge paycut to star in forthcoming drama AN UNFINISHED LIFE after a string of flop films reduced her asking price.

J.Lo’s breakout films SELENA and OUT OF SIGHT in the late 1990s received critical praise, but her movies over the past four years have failed to wow film critics.

Her salary rose to $12 million (GBP6.6 million) for role in ill-fated crime caper GIGLI opposite her former fiance BEN AFFLECK, but after a row of box office misses with ANGELS EYES, ENOUGH and JERSEY GIRL, Lopez is not in such hot demand.

A source from her latest movie An Unfinished Life, tells American newspaper NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Lopez accepted the modest $4 million (GBP2.2 million) salary because “she felt the role would prove she could act”.
