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.
