Jennifer Lopez
made a quick buck Saturday putting on a show for one of the world's most repressive leaders ... but it might not have been worth it considering the s**t storm she's in now. 

J.Lo's being blasted for putting on a special birthday concert in Avasa for the President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow -- complete with a serenade of "Happy Birthday, Mr. President".

The reason being -- Gurbanguly's notorious for the widespread human rights abuses in his country: extreme censorship, ethnic repression, utilizing torture etc. Human Rights Watch considers Turkmenistan's gov one of the most repressive in the world.

A rep for J.Lo went straight into damage control today, hoping to take heat off the singer, explaining, "Had there been knowledge of human rights issues any kind, Jennifer would not have attended."

Do celebs not get Google?

She got the offer and jumped on it right away without any hesitation.


Watch. She will now come out and say how sorry she is and beg to be forgiven because she didn't know. Maybe an half-assed statement about donating to charity without mentioning any kind of amount.


It's incredible how celebs do certain things or run off their mouthes because they think they are entitled to do so. But as soon as it goes off the rails, they start apologizing thinking this will completely make things right and people will resume idolizing them again.

All J.Lo could probably hear was "Cha-Ching!! Cha-Ching!!" Bouncing around in her head. It was all about money nothing else..

Her PR people should be fired if not one of them, or her security team, didn't even know, or try to inquire, about this guy was. What is more likely is that they all knew and didn't care. Either way, she looks stupid and/or greedy.

Yes, yes, yes,


Thank you TMZ for exposing her!!!

Thank you all people who are bashing her!!!!

Now, let's take our actions one step higher and do some good with. We'll have to make these ignorant bitches, JLo and Paula Deen pay. How???

Let's do a petition on Change, or bash them to do some charity to beg for forgiveness.


For JLO, she will have to donate to a charity for ALL the money for that gig!!! She can pick her charity, but must be a legit one, and has to be confirmed by the Charity for the receipt.


Pay, bitches, do some good for your charity instead of crying on TV, or paying to your Publicist to save your reputation. Pay Pay pay, you must pay to redeem yourself. Set this as a trend, make all these rich idiot pay whenever they make a mistake. Like Alec Baldwin as well, no more publicist, no more simple apology! Put the money where your mouth is!!!!

TMZ, why don't you go to Pedoland, show us the 70 seat theater and the rooms behind it where MJ would be watching dirty porn and molesting little young boys!!!


It was said that MJ did something more sinister than just molesting young boys. I wonder what that would be!!!

What would be worse than molesting young boys??? Was that the knowledge of that that drove Paris to a suicide attempt??? Ah............Maybe he molested his purchased "sons"!!!!

What makes this broad SO greedy? Hasn't she made enough money? She's 40, shouldn't she be slowing down to spend more time with her children? She is THE MOST over-rated singer, dancer, actress out there. She is average in every way, including her looks.But what tops it all is her ignorance. Chasing the almighty dollar, and turning a blind eye to human rights abuses and torture. "Happy Birthday Mr. President", are you f-ing kidding me?

I suppose redemption would be donating any proceeds to human rights organizations, especially those focused on Turkmenistan.

Maybe this money-grubbing moron should take a short break from shoe-shopping and yelling at the help to pick up a newspaper occasionally. Disgraceful, fat-assed idiot.....
