It happened again: for a sizable fee, American icon Jennifer Lopez performs for one of the world’s most repressive countries, singing happy birthday to President Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov of Turkmenistan. Does anyone on her team vet these events? You know, against JLo’s own espoused values and efforts for social change. Just a few weeks ago at the Chime for Change concert in London, Lopez performed for tens of thousands of fans in an effort to raise awareness and donations to advance women and girls around the world. Prior to that, Lopez headlined an event on global maternal health in New York titled Mom+Social, at which I was in attendance. Upon hearing her, I had an even greater respect for her philanthropic passion.
