Weekly Vintage BV: Self-indulgent singer

As requested by a reader, here is an old one from Awful Truth, from before Ted started giving nicknames to his Blind Vice subjects.  Since there is no nickname, I am assuming this person could have been BV'd again.

Jennifer Lopez - Let's Get LoudYou might want to invest in some earplugs before reading this diva ditty. Seems a certain self-indulgent singer just can't get enough of her own voice. In fact, this lush 'n' lovely lady lives for turning up her tunes loud enough for everyone on the block to hear. And she sings along--at the top of her high-priced larynx. Certainly, this narcissistic behavior is fine in one's own bedroom, shower and maybe even the Benz, but this booty-shakin' babe recently cranked up her latest album while staying at a supposedly exclusive hotel. Day and night, the spicy songstress belted her catchy riffs over and over. Needless to say, the semi-famous guest staying in the neighboring suite finally had enough. He rang up the front desk and insisted someone tell Ms. Me to cease and desist. As if. No can do, he was told. Like we're gonna tell Ms. M. to take it down a notch, Yeah, right, guffawed the clerks to one another. Leave that to the music critics.

Top suspect was: Jennifer Lopez

Mariah Carey. Her album Charmbracelet was released late '02, not long before this was written. And the last line is a reference to how poorly received it was. Its said to be her worst and neither the album nor any of the singles ever hit number anywhere.

Yeah, could be anyone. The thing is, this person doesn't have a nickname. So it really isn't relevant who this one was. Because she could have been used again, with a nickname.

Totally Jennifer Lopez aka Jenny from the block. Notice the statement "loud enough for everyone on the block to hear".

Jessica said...

yup, the "block" reference, "booty-shakin," and "spicy" all point to J.Lo. Also, "leave that to the music crtics" implies that her voice is not that good which you definitely couldn't say about Mariah or Beyonce.

I could go either way. I was leaning towards Jennifer Lopez because of the "block" "booty-shakin" "Benz" and "spicy" references, but "Ms. Me" and Ms. M" sound like "Mimi" which make me thing Mariah.

Ted just confirmed that Mariah has never been a BV. I am thinking Jenny from the block.

Thanks for posting, blurry. It certainly seems like JLo with all the booty/spicy hints. I don't know why I find this so funny to picture, but I do.

And RFF, that's why I was interested in this one - do you think he counts this as a BV even without a name? When he says a celeb has never been a BV, does that include no-names?

And if he considers this as being a BV, then how does it impact the whole Strippa Rip-Ya debate?
