It Really Isn't All About "Me"!

Head Shake Of The Day

Jennifer Lopez performed in Turkmenistan on Saturday where her performance included a chorus of "Happy Birthday" sung to Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow, the country's leader.  Much to Ms. Lopez's chagrin, it was later discovered that Berdimuhamedow has been criticized for severe human rights violations and that Turkmenistan is classified as one of the most repressive societies in the world.

. . . Oops!

Predictably, Jennifer now regrets the whole ugly incident.
Lopez's publicist says the event was vetted* by Lopez's staff: "Had there been knowledge of human rights issues any kind, Jennifer would not have attended."
Hasn't Jennifer or her highly qualified staff ever heard of Google or Bing?   How hard is it to spend ten minutes researching a venue that you not only can't locate on a map, but likely can't pronounce?  Then again, maybe when you're a world famous singer/performer, it's not where you're performing, but rather the number of tickets sold that matters.

 *vetted - There's that word again (see previous post).  Apparently "Lopez's staff" is as thorough and reliable as the Obama officials who are vetting the Syrian rebels.
