I'm a newbie, so if this has been discussed before, forgive me. But this picture made its thorough rounds across the web last fall, said to be of Jennifer Lopez's personal nipple tweaker to keep them perky while she shot her "Jenny From the Block" video. But to me, it just seemed like the picture was just taken at a bad angle. I know she's got someone to do everything for her, but that ?!

Looks to me like it's the video's wardrobe or assistant wardrobe guy adjusting the drape of the knit top between shots...

Sorry boys. [Cool]

I remember when this was discussed. And people generally seemed to suggest it was fake/misleading. Since then, though, I saw some Biography on VH1 or something and one of the managers actually talked about J Lo's nipple tweaker, and how she actually did have one. Don't know if he was lying or not, but that's what he said. Sorry I don't know the exact show and the person's name.

It looks like she's hired someone for every conceivable job description. It makes me wonder who she hired to take her press photos.

Actually that is my biggest pet peeve with her as well. She makes money showing just how much like the *rest of us* she is*

While making herself one of the biggest diva's currently.

And the media keeps adding to the..look isn't she wonderfully normal. [fish]

PS In the pics in the -a-chow, IIRC, one could clearly see that the "tweaker" was Ben Affleck.

Tree is right it looks like the nipple tweeker is none other than Benny "From The Block" Lofleck.

Thank god! Finally someone agrees with me. I have been saying for months about how irritating she is, yet I always seem to get the response "But she's so beautiful so it's OK, and she's got a normal body shape". IMO I don't think she's even particularly good looking.

I'm so sick of her and Benny too! I wish that they would just go away! Maybe we can send those two to Iraq and that way we wouldn't have to hear about them anymore!

Archie, tell your friends if they come to New York they'll see about a million girls who look like J.Ho.

Wouldn't that be great.

The best I ever heard was a newscaster saying.

"Jennifer Lopez said that she and Ben wouldn't marry as long a people where talking about them. You know what that means.

Keep talking!"

Frankly I think the whole relationship is a worse scripted story than her movies.

I agree actually. I mean there are times when she looks gorgeous...but over all she's not all that. Personally, I think Diana Ortiz of the group Dream is a much more gorgeous Latina than J-Lo.

I saw the video clip on VH1. The guy is definately not Ben Affleck. He approached Miss Lopez during a break in shooting, and spends about a minute adjusting her nipples for appearance. This is not casual touching; it is very methodical and intentional. He leaves as soon at he removes his hands from her nipples.

It looked to me like the guy was exactly what the documentary claimed he was; a professional nipple-tweeker. Maybe he was the cosmetologist for the shoot, but nipple-tweeking was unmistakably part of his job on the set.

I know it seems silly, but this is a traditional thing with performers. Many times this serves as a litmis test to see if the people setting up their area are reading the whole contract. More details about it are in this Van Halen M&M-a-chow.

Then again, it is possible that some performers don't think that far ahead.

I'm pretty sure it's not a test clause in Lopez's case- she's just a egotistical boor. I cna't find the quotes now but some of the things she's said about other actresses and singers (eg Madonna, Gywenth Paltrow) has just been horrendous. She's an embarassment- one of the first female latino megastars and she acts like a tantramatic five year old- what a great example!
In the link Sally's eyes posted she demands "NO TOMATO, APPLE OR GRAPE JUICES" as if she will spontaneously combust if she goes near the things!
I don't think I would be so irritated with her if she actually produced some good work but her music is uninspired dirge and her films saccarine headaches. And I'm also one who doesn't think she's that good looking- we all can be completely anal about what we eat to get a perfect body but most of us have more of a life!

In defense of celebrities, just on this one point, I'll say that a lot of people are sensitive to strange water. I have to drink bottled water when I travel because the native flora in the city water is foreign to my system and my body reacts violently. What director wants to spend a million dollars on a movie star only to have her spending all her time in the bathroom?

As for specifying "room temperature", I don't see any problem with that either. Lots of people might assume that if you're drinking something from a bottle you want it to be iced down. She doesn't. Why be uncomfortable when you can specify? It certainly doesn't inconvenience anyone to not ice down the drinks.

If I remeber correctly, I think that she said that Gwenyth only got publicity because she was Brad Pitt's girlfriend (Gwennie was engaged to Brad at the time of the interview)and that her acting ability was subpar or something like that. I find that comment pretty funny, coming from someone who can't act her way out of a paper bag. I think she was just jealous of Gwennie cause she is a much better actress and she was getting Brad Pitt!

I only remember the Paltrow comment can't remember what she said about Madonna. I'll see if I can find the article on the net.

No one has mentioned the most important questions:

How much does one get paid to play with J-Lo's nipples? And is being gay a job requirement?

Forgive me if I'm wrong, but didn't Madonna use gay men in her shows because her dancing was so sexual? I seem to remember someone telling me that...

I know that many of her dancers wre gay, but I always chalked it up to there being so many gay men who are dancers.
