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's not even that great of a artist, there are other artists that would run circles around her Pink Unlike her other artists have a mental aptitude.

So the question is Mr. Rep, WTF didn't you do your job and screen her offers before she accepts? She is a greedy egotistical old broad. She did not need the $ just wanted to shake her azz half naked in front of men. She is pathetic. She needs to be a mom and act like one.

J Lo thinks only of J Lo and that's it. Puffy has a gun J Lo runs the other way. 9/11 happens and she gets married that weekend, and plays a gig in PR. If it wasn't for auto tunes Ms. thing would be sitting in her mothers house in da Bronx!!!!!!

Welcome to America, where we get judge for everything we do. She a grown woman and can do whatever she wants to do. She has no reason to apologize or explain herself to anyone. America is the most communistic country's in the world. She's a performer and can perform for anyone she pleases. Do your thing jlo, you don't have to answer to anyone.

Morality does not matter to a person who worships notoriety and money.

i don't believe no one did their homework about a county they knew nothing about. Anyone would google first. That's what we have Google for and they have no excuses here. Stupid greedy move.
