Aging dancer Jennifer Lopez learned the hard way that just because you feel 25 again doesn’t mean you can do what 25-year-olds do.

The experienced dancer’s 40-year-old legs weren’t up for the challenge when she leapt off the back of one of her dancers and crashed to the stage during her performance of her single “Louboutins” on the AMAs this weekend.

Lpoez recovered quickly, and continued her song and dance number. But apparently, being the butt of jokes is more than this well known narcissist can stand. In an interview with Ryan Seacrest, J-Lo tried to play dumb:

The singer-actress jokingly played the amnesiac during a Monday interview on Ryan Seacrest’s KIIS FM radio show. “Did I trip a little bit?” she says coyly when Seacrest mentions the tumble. “I don’t even remember.”

After Seacrest commends her for executing the “greatest recovery ever,” Lopez kids: “I meant to do that. What are you talking about? Don’t you know me better than that? It was part of the choreography!”

Suddenly philosophical, she adds: “the measure of things is, it’s not what happens when you fall, it’s how you handle it when you fall.”

She won’t recover quickly when her album ‘Love?’ drops next year and bombs.

    WORK BISH!

    I :heart: her!

  • Quitta

    I like her too Daisy. But she know damn well she just bust her azz. She need tah stop.

    By the way, love her bootz.

  • Anna

    Not sure why this is such a big deal. The show was live she fell off of someone’s sweaty back and bounced back up quick and got more confidence because she was working that wack song.

  • CivilEngineer

    It would be more believable if she didn’t say anything. Now she just seems embarassed. But my real question is where could she possibly be going in that pic, heels and a sweat suit? :shrugs: That’s what needs clarifying, we’re over the fall!!

  • MrzzSmitty

    LMAO @ J.LO She sounds so delusional!

  • Krysi J

    Come on gurl…. :waiting:

    “are you serious?”

    Blank stare.

  • missmiami

    I like her better as an actress. I :heart: the wedding planner. Anyway, her boots are HOT :exclaim:

  • MissGauzzz

    @ daisy i :heart: ole girl, too…but sometimes u just gotta play ur position and know when to hold ’em and when to fold ’em! sometimes seeing chicks (and dudes) that are 40+ jumpin’ around on stage with backup dancers like they’re 25 is somewhat unsettling. not sayin’ she should be in a rockin’ chair or anything…BUT!!! i’m just sayin’..j lo needs to go ‘head and embrace the next phase of her life and perhaps focus on acting cause her dance game seems to have packed up and left!

  • pinky2083

    Hate the song.

    Love JLO.

  • http://facebook.com/Im2thick4u 2thick4u

    Damn it did look like it could have been part of the show…she bounced back quick…LMAO :) !!!

  • Quitta

    @ MissGauzzz

    And so does Janet.

  • missy

    What is the need of lying J.lo/lola/Jenny from the block everyone has fallen down and by her saying that she meant to fall is only making it a bigger deal…….Unless that is what she is going for……..more people to talk about it………Or was it Lola who fell and not you *SEOD*

    I saw it on a next site and they have a gif. and it is :rofl: ……Any way Jenny do you girl……..

  • MsG

    She should have did the Beyawnce and let it go. Beyawnce took a far more terrible fall and just moved on. Ish happens.

  • mistarie

    :yawn:
    Is she still relevant?
    Why are we talking about her?
    I loved (past tense) arounf the “Jenny from the Block” and “I’m Real” days, but WHY are we talking about her now? :shrugs:
    Sooooo confused.

  • missy

    @missmiami

    J.lo acted her butt off in Enough and Selena she is one of the few singers who could actually act……..And I will say Jenny should stick to acting now in her prime……….

  • ohpretty1

    That comment was her way of playing the situation off. As a PROFESSIONAL, she jumped back into that routine without missing a beat. I cannot be mad at her for that one.

  • MissGauzzz

    @Quitta! yeah, girl u rite!!!! janet too!! :rolleyes: i luv janet, but watching her “TRY” to do all those old moves is painful!

  • CivilEngineer

    I do still :rofl: at “Monster in Law”
    That movie is HILARIOUS!!

  • BLACKBARBIE404

    J LO LOVING THE PUBLICITY (BAD OR GOOD). LIKE HER, BUT THE SONG SUCKS!

  • missmiami

    @ Missy I love “Enough”. Everytime I watch that movie I feel empowered. LOL!

  • Krysi J

    I like her better as an actress. I the wedding planner. Anyway, her boots are HOT

    —————————————————–

    LOVE THAT MOVIE!………she can act, but that singing shyt…SMH. Somebody should’ve told her better a long time ago…..then again, she was making money one time off dat shyt so :shrugs:

    her and Ashanti ERRRK the HELL OUTTA ME!!

  • MsG

    MissMiami,
    I love Enough too! I watch it everytime it comes on TBS.

    :cosign Daisy:

    Geez Louise its called Sarcasm. Look it up.

    Most people in the entertainment industry do have a touch of narcissism. Its what drives them to the forefront. Not saying she does or doesnt but she’s always displayed sarcastic humor.

    To follow up yesterdays convo Thats whos number one in Diddys heart. He’s even said it. She left and never went back and you know that just eats at him

  • MsG

    She was so good it Selena and I love that movie as well. It makes me sad when at the end they throw the white rose on the stage (death).

    I agree she should stick to acting.

  • missy

    @missmiami

    You aren’t the only one who feel empowered when you watch “Enough” that is my movie…………

    But I still feel like Jenny was born to play Selena……till this day I cry whenever Selena dies…(tearing up) when they start playing”Until i’m dreaming of you tonight,until tomorrow i’ll be holding you tight…” man I love that movie

  • Denim

    I :heart: Jlo she was being sarcastic in that interview not serious. She is a better actress but I have alllll her albums anywho this new song is slowly growing on me ;)

  • BLACKBARBIE404

    SUP WIGGY – I WENT TO VALDOSTA THIS PAST WEEKEND, ALSO WENT TO THE AMVETS… LOL

  • mistarie

    missy said: she is one of the few singers who could actually act…
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    I was right there with you until you called her a singer. :nono:

  • Anna

    But my real question is where could she possibly be going in that pic, heels and a sweat suit?
    ~~~~~
    There are just some women that you will never see wear flats, aside from JLo’s boxing AMA performance. Patty Labelle only wears heels aslo Dolly Parton. Not sure why she had on the sweat suit with heels.

  • MsG

    I agree she was born to play Selena, just like Jamie with Ray Charles. They were suppose to do. I feel that way about Mike Epps playing Richard Pryor- he should have gotten that part. I know he is a mess, but he is too much like Richard in personality and physical.

  • http://twitter.com/sherita78 mizzdallas

    I :heart: JLO she can do no wrong in my books anyways she is in better shape then some of these 20 yr old chicks and can dance way better :coffee:

  • Denim

    I 2nd that MizzDallas
    It’s sad to think someone lost their life tragically (Selena) was a fan of her as well to launch someone else’s career because if Selena wouldn’t have died there would b no Jlo

  • Daisy

    @wiggy get out of my head :lol: I always LOVED J Lo and Puffy! I think she would have gotten him to the aisle before anybody else :coffee:

  • Daisy

    I think J Lo can still dance but the choreo and song arent HAWT! She was a dancer 1st and trained unlike others POW

  • wtf

    i actually like that song she performed…even with the fall, she did better than some…

    ps, i think she was actually making fun of her fall…i know you get it sandra but choose to ignore it…smh at bloggers…

  • wtf

    btw, she looks cute in that pic…

  • wiggy2272003

    Blackbarbie, we go a lot from Oct to May the rest of the times the bugs down there are just too much for me.

    Where do you eat down there? All I see are fast food and chain restaurants. Got any suggestions?

    Daisy, if she left her husband today and called him he’d be right there. He fit her to me more than Marc. I guess she loves him but they just don’t look right to me.

  • SanfiPolemikos

    LOL! She is too old to be jumping around like that! Her new music, like her old music is lame too. Some people just don’t know when to call it quits.

  • misslee21

    Song sucks but I love how she handled her fall..werk it bish

  • http://chokolatemilk.blogspot.com Choco

    I am forced to agree with Sandra and I like Jennifer but just becuz you feel 25 don’t mean you can do what 25 year olds do-shat Im 39 and I feel 25 but my boyfriend who is 25 keeps me looking young but I can not go as long as I used to…thank god he can’t either LMAO

  • Daisy

    @wiggy I agree he would drop ALL them baby mama’s and Cassie for J to the L O! The bish is FIERCE and had his :heart:

  • LadeeA

    At least when Bey fell down like eight steps flat on her face :lol: She was woman enough to admit that she had to suck it up and keep performing. J-Lo is wack, washed up and desperate and feels that she has to LIE about bussin her azz. People would’ve respected it more if she admitted it.

  • wiggy2272003

    Sometimes at night I really worry at the number of people who believe an opinion of an event as fact. And who don’t know how to read between the lines.

    * I see gullible people *

  • T-Dubb

    I love J Lo’s boots, but I’m not sure how I like them with that sweat suit. I didn’t know people still wore full sweatsuits like that anymore :surprised:

  • cjgrantjr

    AND SHE’S ABSOLUTELY CORRECT.

    EVERYBODY FALLS. WHETHER ITS IN REHEARSAL OR WHILE PERFORMING. IT’S JUST NOT ALWAYS DURING A LIVE NATIONWIDE AWARDS SHOW TELECAST.

    HELL, IF IT WEREN’T FOR YOU TUBE WE PROBABLY WOULD HAVE ONLY HEARD ABOUT BEYONCE’S INFAMOUS FALL.

    SHE DID THE DAMN THING LIKE THE PERFORMER THAT SHE IS, AND GOT HER ASS UP AND KEPT IT MOVING.

    SAY WHAT YOU MUST ABOUT HER BUT SHE STILL DOIN THE DAMN THING–AT 40.

  • LadeeA

    Why do yall talk about 40 like it’s 80? People should be able to move like that at 40. I know 70 year olds that are in better shape than that. :shrugs:

  • texarican mamacita

    GO JENNIFER :cheer:

    Do you mama… :coffee:

  • http://chokolatemilk.blogspot.com Choco

    @LadeeA
    Valid point…

  • SootheSayer

    She should have just not said anything about it…she did recover from that fall pretty well though…even with that said, she seemed to be off her game the entire performance, and to me The Fall was just the tell-tell sign that she needs to give up music :shrug:

  • wiggy2272003

    Wow falling=give up music, too bad every other performer in the world hasn’t gotten that memo yet.

  • MzKaren83

    She won’t recover quickly when her album ‘Love?’ drops next year and bombs.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~
    :rofl: u wrong for that one Sandra

  • Candi Apple

    Mark lit a candle, lol. He want her to sty home with the kids. thats what happens when stars try to hard to stay relevant. Look a janet jackson she could have smoother her performance out it would have been better. she tried to damn hard to prove she can still dance when its natural for her. same with jenny from the block

  • Musiqal1

    She was obviously being sarcastic…

  • gagirl08

    ^^THANK YOU, Musiqal1!!! I’m reading these comments like, seriously?? Anyway, I like her boots but they don’t go w/ a track suit.

  • http://sandrarose.com Ms.kaylamomma

    I heard her on Big Boi radio and was wondering what happened to her accent. She sounded very nigger-ish. I guess she only uses it when she is on the white people radio. WOMP!

  • H.B.I.C

    *Sucking my teeth and rolling my eyes* Jennifer seems to be the only one who didn’t get the memo that she is now a Stepford wife. Ugggghhh, I hate a blatant trick that tries to convince everyone else that she’s not a whore. Suge really should release that tape of Ms. self proclaimed virginal Lopez getting tossed up. But she married the right one. She was creeping with Mark when they were both married hopefully their union keeps them from wrecking other homes. Girl BYE!!!! :cya:
