Party People of Dubai: J-Lo seduces the crowd on the floor!
JLo does Dubai: All glitz and glamor for the city of work and play
22 November was a day of giving thanks, not least for the Dubai crowd who saw JLo ‘dance again’ for them on her world tour UAE stop. The cosmopolitan audience at expat-central was celebrating the music of their favorite Latino artiste.
The Bronx-born bonita broke into her show to a mellow opening that lulled us into the false pretense: This was no diva entrance and yet she was encrusted in jewels enough to stretch across the JBR walk. "I'm still Jenny from the Block" - she belted out not long after, but she could have fooled some.
The platinum-selling recording artist and American Idol judge wore a clustered Swaroski number (courtesy of the crystal designer flashed in her On the Floor video), bejeweled from top to toe in a studded set that hugged her signature curves.
Diva she may not have been but show-girl she was. Owner of the world-famous butt, the pop-icon gave us a night of Hispanic heat in a line-up of thumping performance. Her 'BF' who doubled as dancer was just one of a string of hot male stage props flanking the lucky lady. Casper Smart- the much-talked about ultimate support in boyfriends, on tour with his girl- was strutting his stuff for both love and money.
A boxing ring-themed set allowed her to flash her toned tum and woman power. The 43 year-old gave the Dubai venue all her energy and love. She danced, chatted, and shook hands with the audience – proving that she really was still down-to-earth-like-this-Jenny!
The concert, at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre on November 22, was never short of her snazzy bling; and, sucking in your breath at costume after set after stunt, you couldn’t help but remember just how far behind she’d left her humble Bronx roots.
A nice touch for the Lebanese in the audience on their national day came when she draped a Cedar flag around her voluptuous frame: The crowd- clearly with a rich Levantine fanbase - went wild! Later she threw her own weight back on stage with a Puerto Rican flag.
In true silver screen actress-style, she indulged in some gushing 'lovey dovey' moments with her partner on a staged video monitor, and also got her twins on display. She ended with party anthem ‘On the Floor’, leaving her Emirati and international party people to put their drinks up. Their love hadn't cost a thing-- but for the VIP ticket fee.
