Jennifer Lopez Criticized for Performance

Jennifer Lopez is being blasted after performing for a dictator in Turkmenistan.

For a fat paycheck, J. Lo performed in one of the most repressive countries in the world and sang happy birthday to the President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow. According to the Guardian, Lopez took to the stage with a shout of "Turkmenistan!" Then after running through her biggest hits, she changed from a skimpy white dress into a long, traditional Turkmen outfit to sing Happy Birthday, Mr President.

A rep for J.Lo tried to claim ignorance on the matter, saying, "Had there been knowledge of human rights issues of any kind, Jennifer would not have attended."
