Jennifer Lopez broke down in tears onstage at the Mohegan Sun’s 15th anniversary celebration on Saturday night, but not because her thighs looked enormous in those pants. She cried because it was a song she wrote about her past loves. Did you just throw up a little in your mouth, too? People Magazine says:
“I’m going to sing you the last song I wrote about love,” Lopez, who recently split from husband Marc Anthony, told the audience after singing an acoustic rendition of her hit “If You Had My Love.” “A lot has changed since then.”
Lopez, 42, then launched into “Until It Beats No More” while dancers re-enacted scenes with the singer and some of the men from her past. A Lopez lookalike danced with guys who looked a lot like her exes Diddy, Cris Judd and Ben Affleck.
The final couple to appear in the spotlight danced much like Lopez and her estranged husband during their American Idol performance in May, just weeks before they announced their split.
After she was done, Lopez told the sold-out crowd, “I took a trip down memory lane” – and then started to cry as the crowd applauded.
Let’s just stop right there and revisit that blockquote again. She re-enacted her failed relationships with back-up dancers on a stage. And then she was so moved by her own story that she cried. At least Narcissus had the decency to drown trying to make love to his own reflection.
