They're forbidden from actually rubbing butts. Or showing crack! Dirty, nasty crack. We won't stand for it. I don't get this, personally. Here are 5 things more offensive than the thought of J. Lo and Iggy rubbing their giant butts together on national television. 1. The song "Booty." First, some sample lyrics: "Big, big booty/What you got a big booty/Work/Big, big booty/What you got a big booty/Shake that/Big, big booty." And from our favorite Southern (hemisphere) rapper Iggy: "Ya'll know what I've been on, ya'll know that I've been on/I'm queen big booty, Iggy, now find me a bone to sit on/Girls with the cheeks, put 'em hands in the air/Then pop that, »

Jennifer Lopez Opens Up About Being Verbally and Mentally Abused in Past Relationships

J-Lo also reveals the moment she decided to divorce Marc Anthony

In a new memoir, Jennifer Lopez opens up about her 2011 split from Marc Anthony, and also reveals she's felt abused in past relationships.

The newest issue of People magazine features an excerpt from her upcoming book, True Love -- out Nov. 4 --, which details the moment in 2011 when the singer says she realized she needed to divorce Anthony.

Lopez recalls feeling increasingly pressured to appear to have a perfect relationship, ultimately suffering a panic attack during a photo shoot in Los Angeles. That was when she decided to end things with Anthony after seven years of marriage. The couple wed in June 2004.

"As I sat there getting made up, my heart was beating out of my chest and I felt like I couldn't breathe... I became consumed with anxiety," the American Idol judge writes.

8 September 2014 9:39 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Jennifer Lopez has been sort of off the radar lately in terms of movies, but she's coming back in January 2015 with a brand new dramatic thriller in which her intimate encounter with a younger man has repercussions far beyond the expected.  The first trailer for the film has now landed and you can see how things go from bad to crazy very quickly.  

To be honest...I kind of like this trailer.  I've seen a lot of stuff regarding stalking cases and how horrible they can be, and this feels like a fairly good depiction of those times.  it is very scary and can be all consuming for the victim.  The only issue I have, is that this trailer seems to give just about the entire film away.  From it we can deduce that she's separated from her husband, feeling lonely, thus has an affair she shouldn't have, then as »
