J.Lo Beats Diddy?
Was it just a coincidence that they were the only two (former lovebirds) trying to get the top prize? According to Jennifer’s manager, Benny Medina, maybe not:
Asked if Lopez and Combs’ competing bids for Fuse was a coincidence or a residual effect of their two-year affair that began in 1999– Combs once likened his tumultuous relationship with Lopez to Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner’s romance – Medina replied, “I don’t think it’s a coincidence,” but added that it had nothing to do with their past history.
“In many ways, Jennifer and Sean are cut from the same cloth,” Medina said. They’re both passionate artists of the same generation who think on a grand and global scale. They were two superstars seeking to build their brand, who happened to be Jennifer and Puffy.” (They’re also both 44 years old.)
There’s no word on when Jennifer will take the reins. But, hopefully, when she does, her salary isn’t too astronomical. We already know what she’s doing to American Idol. Sheesh!
