The fabulous 40-year-old and mother of two, Jennifer Lopez, made her comeback performance at the 2009 American Music Awards recently (does that count as a comeback?) and performed her new single “Louboutins” in a Rocky Balboa-esque performance:
Sticking to her usual high-energy, sharp choreography, she paid homage to the French designer by using his uber-popular brand name to drive the point home that she is leaving her lying, good for nothing man- and she is throwing on her Louboutin’s to do so. No copyright infringement over here, though! The famed guru of shoes granted her permission to use his name, even taught her how to pronounce it properly! As far as the end result of the record, he loves it!
Jennifer told me about the song back in January, and I was extremely flattered,” recalled the French shoe guru. “But of course, in America the public pronounces my name in like a million different ways. So Jennifer called me, and she was like, ‘Listen, I want to make sure that I get it right.’ And she did…from the very first time!”
I know the song by heart now,” he stated. “Because the brilliant part of the single is that it’s not about me. It’s about a girl and her shoe. When something is so in mass culture and you have almost nothing to do with it, it’s kind of cool. It’s weird but not disagreeable.” Can I get a Louboutin word count? “That would be 45,” he laughed. “Trust me, I’ve counted!”
I’m loving that he’s loving it. As far as the song goes, I”m not a fan of it.
