Guess Who?!

Published: Saturday 15th Jun 2013 by David

Guess which triple threat was snapped out and about on the streets of Brooklyn, NYC yesterday.

Hint: She can cite Lil Wayne, Janet Jackson, Beyonce, David Beckham, Mariah Carey and Gloria Estefan as collaborators.

Not sure who the mystery lady is?

Her identity below…

It’s Jennifer Lopez!

Hitting Brooklyn to shoot the commercial for her Viva Movil venture, the ‘Maid in Manhattan’ star turned heads as she shot scenes for the ad- striking a pose in front of the flagship stores as her new single ‘Live It Up’ continues to soar on charts overseas.

Juicy Fact: In 2001, Lopez came under fire from fans of Mariah Carey when was accused of stealing the sample used to create Carey’s ‘Loverboy’ to forge her own cut ‘I’m Real‘.

According to reports published at the time, Carey was forced to reproduce ‘Boy’ using another sample (Cameo’s ‘Candy‘) to avoid what some billed a Tommy Mottola fuelled sabotage.

    She’s looking amazing!
    Mariah fans were jealous ’cause Glitter was a disaster, not only the movie but the full album.]
    Jennifer is still on the game and with an amazing energy which lots of young ladies in the music/enterteinement industry don’t have…

    Oh wooow, i just watched the trailor, i didnt know that Tommy did that to Mariah thats f***** up, he went out of his way to sabotage here album at that point, threatening radio DJ’s i saw the documentary! This explains the beef, however its not JLo’s fault, if your label boss makes you do that and you had no idea, and obviously JLO then went and got an even better remix done with Ja Rule which was the main hit. This explains why JLo has never had abad word to say about Mariah she probably understands the anger especially when the movie and song were already made and the song is in the trailor, thats so f***** up…

    • Adam June 26, 2013

      I’m Real Remix was also ripped off “If We feat. JA RULE” which is also from ‘Glitter’.

  6. DOSSOME June 15, 2013

    People keep forgetting Glitter was done by 1998,but Mottola being who he was pulled strings to delay the album and Mimi was forced to release #1s and RAINBOW instead….Anyway JLO looks great

  7. POP ROYALTY (Bohemian Grove) June 15, 2013

    I will always recognize this ICONIC ass everywhere.

    she’s pushing her ass out, JLO is never fat , ninjas. 😆

    I don’t know why why why mariah’s legendary name found it’s own way to this post, which i think was un-related, but since we are here :

    I Love “glitter” , while you are listening to music , you should have a mind of your own, and i’m yet to find a reason to hate on this album, it is a good mix of different sounds in my opinion, i love it , didn’t watch the movie in it’s entirety “always watch it from the middle” tbh, but i’m willing to do so one day.

    mottola used “JLO” to hit “MC” and bring her down, but mariah is not that type, so.. JLO, i love you, but i can’t support you in this , I’m team Mariah on this situation, it is so stupid to think it was just a sample problem, mariah’s is bigger than that, it is the way that devil played with her is what was low.

    i enjoy them both tbh, but if i had to choose, i will go with MC, sorry.

    • JOHNVIDAL June 15, 2013

      I can´t get over the fact you said you just bought “Charmbracelet” the other day, the physical copy. I mean, it´s so hard for me to believe any person could buy Charmbracelet in 2013, let along a physical copy. I understand people buy old albums but in Mariah´s case those would be Daydream or Music Box or The Emancipation for example, and probably digital copies. But Charmbracelet? That has to be her most disliked album. As a Mariah fan I can enjoy it. Lyrically it´s great but she went too damn far when it comes to experimenting with her voice. Only Mariah fans can enjoy that, definitely not mainstream audiences.
      Some of my favorites on that album are: “The one”, “Clown”, “My saving Grace”, “You had your chance” and obviously her cover of “Bringin´ on the heartbreak”

      • DOSSOME June 15, 2013

        My favorites were Clown,Bringin on the heartbreak,my saving grace,yours,subtle invitation and through the rain….and i really enjoyed Sunflowers for Alfred Roy as well…lyrically,that album was supreme..

      • POP ROYALTY (Bohemian Grove) June 15, 2013

        I’m so different and i still buy physical copies of older albums ” even order them sometimes when they are not available” , Also I love to explore the music world, I have her older Albums , ALL of them , the only album i didn’t buy ” as a physical copy” is ” Memoirs of an imperfect angel” , but someday i will when it GROW enough on me.

        I Love “Charmbracelet” , it has “through the rain , Boy (i need you) , the One , Clown , my saving grace , etc..” And I LOVE all of those.

        boy (i need you) is what i call a “Clever record” .

        “Clown” is my JAM, I don’t care if most people like or dislike an album , i have a mind of my own , i will decide if I love the album or dislike it , and I like it , i also like “glitter” if we gonna go there.
        “Music Box” is my fav album of her. 😀

        i am a mariah fan buddy.

      • JOHNVIDAL June 15, 2013

        I understand all of that. The thing is I still didn´t consider you a Mariah Carey fan. More like you like her but nothing else. Now I see you could be a true fan. If you enjoy Mariah´s style during Charmbracelet then you are a fan for damn sure 🙂

    “while you are listening to music,you should have a mind of your own”

    ^^^^EXACTLY,I couldn’t have said it better..I love Glitter as well and i just can’t get enough of LEAD THE WAY,one of her best songs EVER…I don’t like LOVERBOY,at all

    • POP ROYALTY (Bohemian Grove) June 15, 2013

      😉

      “Loverboy” is so catchy , i love it, but love the remix even more.

      • DOSSOME June 15, 2013

        I could tolerate the remix but the original,no…but i’m glad you feel that way about Glitter 🙂

      • POP ROYALTY (Bohemian Grove) June 15, 2013

        I get what you say. 😀

    • JOHNVIDAL June 15, 2013

      In Spain everybody loved “Never too Far”, which was the second single. In fact the album performed better here than in the rest of the world, debuting at #3. “Lead the Way” is clearly better though. I was really young and it brings so many memories back. At first listen I loved it way more than Rainbow. I remember how they were debuting different songs on the radio on different days and I was there thinking “damn Mariah went the f*** in with the vocals”. For example when they premiered “Don´t Stop” I was like WOW at the whistle note towards the end of the song. I really felt a vocal improvement and everybody did. Problem with the album was that the media was prepared for it to fail and make fun of Mariah, they were so waiting for that. And the biggest problem was that the album was related to the movie, which was a disaster, so it couldn´t be saved. But I loved loved and loved it. Such a different sound for her. Some parts are a little cheesy. But it´s a great and different addition to her catalogue.

      • DOSSOME June 15, 2013

        like Mariah said,with the events of 9/11,the media landed a goldmine with Glitter,that was the perfect story to cause diversion,& Lord,they went in…just like they humiliated Michael for selling “only” 7 million ww copies with INVINCIBLE

      • POP ROYALTY (Bohemian Grove) June 15, 2013

        I Love all the tracks in “Glitter” , drag me, judge me , i don’t hate this album at all and i don’t get the hate it gets , like why ? it’s playful and a real Pop album.

        I wasn’t here when mariah’s was the media’s favorite bunchbag , but i’m sure i would have supported it back then as well.

        Judge ME.

  9. Todd June 15, 2013

    Boy and Loverboy are two different tracks….

  10. JOHNVIDAL June 15, 2013

    Another deperate attempt to create a stan war by TGJ. Didn´t you tried it like 5 or 6 times a month ago when both ladies released their new singles at the same time? And about the same thing again? Damn… get over it it´s 2013 and we know who is who.

    • DOSSOME June 15, 2013

      We’re hitting GOLD status next week…So glad #Beautiful is doing this great

      • DOSSOME June 15, 2013

        ^^^Awkward,i thought Sam was withholding this comment,lol

    • DOSSOME June 15, 2013

      You realize we’re hitting GOLD status next week,right?#Beautiful is growing to be one consistent seller

      • JOHNVIDAL June 15, 2013

        I know! She can already say #Beautiful is a top15 hit on the Billboard hot 100, which is amazing. It did really great on itunes in so many countries when it was released and in Australia I think it has been a strong top10 on the official chart, not just on itunes.
        I´m so damn excited about the album. Like it is really near now and we don´t know anything about it except for #Beautiful, which makes it really promising. Just how I like it.

      • DOSSOME June 15, 2013

        Australia really came through this time,her biggest hit there since SHAKE IT OFF,and it’s gold certified already….all this mystery this era is thrilling,i can’t wait

      • POP ROYALTY (Bohemian Grove) June 15, 2013

        WOW.

        basically one of this Year’s most successful Hits , she deserve it.

        but now we have The clean , the explicit versions , can we get a Solo version and an acoustic one in a special EP ? i miss when she was so much into EPs and Remixes …

    J-Ho aka The Thief ! Stole from Mariah Carey, Kat Deluna and Chante Moore.

    Chante Moore has joined the list of singers who have allegedly had their songs stolen by Jennifer Lopez this week. According to a recent interview with NPR, Lopez’s breakthrough single “If You Had My Love” was Chante Moore’s second single !

    “I wanted to sock him in the head,” says Moore when asked about the song which was written by Rodney Jerkins (Brandy) then later re-written for Lopez.

    According to Moore, her second single entitled “If I Gave Love” was almost identical to Lopez’s 1999 hit “If You Had My Love” which resulted in Moore’s single being shelved.

    “We should have been aggressive instead of backing off our single, we backed off of it because J.Lo had such a machine at the time. We should have just stepped out,” says the singer who recently released a new album.

    Possibly referencing the debacle in her new single “It Ain’t Suppose To Be This Way,” Moore blames Jerkins and Sean Diddy (Puffy) Combs for the song which catipulted Jennifer Lopez to the top of the charts, leaving the “Chante’s Got A Man” singer to fend for herself.

    “I heard that it was because Puff Daddy walked in and heard my song and said, ‘I want that song.’ [Rodney] was like, ‘Yeah, it’s already taken. We wrote that for Chante.’ And [Puffy] was like, ‘Yeah, mmm hmm, I want that song.’ So Rodney wrote really the same song,” the singer explained, before adding: “Hers, I can’t even remember. It’s so close I can’t even sing it right now. Same song!”

    Moore has released four albums since the “If I Gave Love” situation, the replacement single for “If I Gave Love” entitled “I See You In A Different Light” failed to achieve the top 10 success of “Chante’s Got A Man.”

    Mariah ‘Ripped Off’ Twice on Same Record

    The situation is worse than I thought. In the below story, which we published yesterday, rap impresario Irv Gotti conceded for the first time that Mariah Carey had her work on Glitter lifted for Jennifer Lopez’s J.LO album.

    It turns out however that before it was released Glitter was pilfered from not once but twice by Lopez.

    Not only was a song sample Carey intended to use taken from Glitter, but a concept as well.

    All of this has to do with Lopez’s hit song, “I’m Real,” which in fact is two different songs. Confused? Welcome to pop music in 2002.

    On Lopez’s album J.LO, “I’m Real” appears as an upbeat dance number. There’s no rapping or male vocal accompaniment. The record does sample the old disco song, “Firecracker.” The songwriting credits for that version of “I’m Real,” list Martin Denny (who wrote “Firecracker”) as well as Lopez and three producers. J.LO was released on July 24, 2001.

    The remixed “I’m Real,” which was released a few weeks later, is quite different. It’s a slow give and take duet between Lopez and rapper Ja Rule. Denny’s name is gone from the credits, replaced by Ja Rule (real name Jeffrey B. Atkins). This version became Lopez’s hit single. Two songs, one title.

    For Glitter, Mariah Carey had found the “Firecracker” sample and recorded it on her soundtrack as “Loverboy.” For another Glitter track called “If We,” she and Ja Rule recorded a slow give and take vocal. On J.LO, the upbeat “I’m Real” ripped off Carey’s planned — and subsequently scuttled version — of “Loverboy.” The remixed version of “I’m Real” — which Irv Gotti referred to in his XXL interview — copied the style and substance of “If We.” Creatively, Carey — who’d worked hard on Glitter for a year in secret — could say she was plundered twice. Wouldn’t that be enough to drive anyone crazy?

    Thanks to the Internet, Carey’s fans can make the “If We”/”I’m Real” scandal a party game simply by logging on to cdnow.com which features audio clips of all three songs — “If We” plus the two “I’m Real” versions. It’s fun, free entertainment!

    Mariah Vindicated: Her Song Was ‘Swiped’

    Mariah Carey may finally have been vindicated. It seems that there was more than a little truth in her accusations last summer that someone was out to get her.

    In the new issue of a rap magazine called XXL, record executive Irv Gotti admits that Tommy Mottola, Carey’s ex-husband and the head of Sony Music, instructed him to make a record for Jennifer Lopez that sounded exactly like one Gotti’s company had made with Carey for her movie, Glitter — even though Glitter was not finished and Lopez would beat Carey to the punch and undermine a project she was recording for Sony.

    In XXL, Gotti is asked by writer Keith Murphy: “Is it true that Tommy Mottola asked Murder Inc. [Gotti’s production company] to do the remix of [Jennifer Lopez’s] “I’m Real” after hearing a song Ja Rule did with Mariah Carey on the Glitter soundtrack?”

    Gotti replies: “Ja wrote a song with him and Mariah singing back and forth on the title track. I get a call from Tommy Mottola, who I have a great relationship with, and he’s like, ‘I need you to do me a favor. I want you to do this remix for Jennifer Lopez. I want you to put Ja on the record.’ Immediately I knew what he was doing because we just finished the Mariah record.”

    The Mariah record Gotti refers to is “Loverboy,” from the movie Glitter. Carey had picked out a sample from Yellow Magic Orchestra’s recording of “Firecracker” to be the basis of the song. She and Ja Rule worked on it, and the song was included on daily viewings from the filming of Glitter.

    But Glitter was a Sony Pictures release, which is a sister company of Sony Music. Mottola, according to sources who worked on the movie, was surreptitiously viewing footage of Glitter while his ex-wife was shooting it.

    “Mariah was so paranoid about the music getting out that we had another singer sing the temporary versions,” says a Glitter insider.

    “When Jennifer Lopez’s record came out, and had the exact same song, we knew she had a right to be paranoid. We couldn’t believe it.”

    Indeed, Gotti’s statement to XXL suggests that once Mottola heard Carey’s song — and knew Glitter was months away from completion — he stole the idea and gave it to Lopez for the remix of her song, “I’m Real.”

    The hit version of “I’m Real” with Ja Rule was released after Lopez’s album was already out. It’s substantially different from the original version.

    Murphy, the reporter who interviewed Gotti, said yesterday that the rap music executive told him that Mottola wanted Ja Rule to make a record “in the same style” for Lopez that he’d already made for Carey. “It was exactly the same style — with Mariah and Ja talking back and forth, just the way he does with Jennifer on I’m Real.”

    But here’s a key revelation: the music publisher of “Firecracker” — the sample that Ja Rule used first with Carey and then with Lopez — told me yesterday: “Mariah Carey called us to license a sample from “Firecracker” first. Then, within a month, Jennifer Lopez also called for it.”

    The publisher of “Firecracker” also pointed out that the composition, by Martin Denny, had never been sampled before Mariah Carey called about it.

    Sony Music spokesperson Patricia Kiehl said yesterday: “One song has nothing to do with the other. This is absolutely untrue.”

    When the possible theft of “Firecracker” was brought up in Talk magazine last fall, Mottola and Lopez’s producers immediately invoked that idea that it was a coincidence that the sample was used twice, though — a different defense altogether.

    Ironically, the “Firecracker” case found Carey getting a taste of her own medicine when she — and not Lopez — had been Mottola’s darling. During Carey’s 11 years at Sony Music, she, Sony, and Mottola were sued at least three times for plagiarism. Each case was settled out of court for roughly $1 million, with Carey making no admission of guilt. In one instance, Randy Hoffman — Mottola’s business partner and Carey’s then manager — wore a hidden tape recorder to a meeting with a witness hoping to get him to change his testimony.

    Just as other songwriters had once been affected by having their songs swiped, the impact on Carey of losing the “Firecracker” sample for Glitter was deep. The singer was forced to quickly change the sample on “Loverboy” from “Firecracker” to Cameo’s old hit, “Candy.”

    “We had to work fast,” says a Glitter source, “because we had to find music that would fit what was already filmed.” Nevertheless, the damage was done. When “Loverboy” was released it was savaged by music industry trade paper Billboard in an unusually harsh review.

    Carey — exhausted from working on the project and then knocked out by the scathing reaction — snapped and became the subject of public derision.

    Insiders speculate the Mottola-Lopez theft may have had a silver lining. Carey was able to use it to free herself and Glitter from Sony, even though she still owed them an album on her contract. One source told me: “Mariah and her lawyer, Don Passman, went to Tommy and told him that if they didn’t let her go, she’d let the higher-ups at Sony know what he’d done to her-and to a Sony project.”

    The speculation is that Mottola had to make Glitter look as bad as possible to Sony’s Japanese honchos, who loved Carey and wanted to keep her as an artist. Ironically, Glitter still sold like crazy in Japan.

    Carey wound up taking Glitter to EMI/Virgin as the first record on an $80 million deal. When the album tanked, EMI panicked and paid her a total of $49 million to cancel her contract. Carey is now fielding offers from Universal Music Group, J Records, and Warner Music Group for new contract.

    Jennifer Lopez Accused Of Copying Kat DeLuna Song

    The Jenny From The Block hit-maker debuted her new single on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show on Tuesday, and fans have already slated the song for its resemblance to DeLuna’s track Party O’Clock, which was released in Europe in November. Critics have pointed out that both tracks were produced by music mogul RedOne and they claim the lyrics and harmonies are similar.

    Lopez sings on her record, “Cuz London to Ibiza/Straight to L.A. New York/Vegas to Africa,” while DeLuna chants, “Party in Ibiza, Party in New York/All the way to Africa/Love in the Caribbean/On my way to Vegas.”

    One web blogger has even made a video ‘mash-up’ of the two tracks to demonstrate their likeness, writing, “J Lo needs to thank Kat DeLuna.”

    However, DeLuna is adamant she’s happy with the similarity of the records because she’s such a huge fan of Lopez, telling the New York Daily News, “It’s cool that artists like J.Lo are inspired by my musical sound and style.
