I want to hug J Lo

I watch American Idol. Surprised? Probably not. I'm pretty sure I fit one or two of the following audience demographics:

1. A 6 to 15 year old girl.

2. A mom, probably with girls who are between the ages of 0 and 15.

3. Someone who thinks they can sing but really can't.

Oh. And I also read the Twilight series, twice, and have seen each of the movies multiple times. But that fits the same demographic. Surprised? Probably not.

But my point is American Idol. I'm a fan. And with the judge changes this year I'm an even bigger fan. They are so nice. It's like one big lovefest.

And that lovefest is led by "she loves all contestants" Jennifer Lopez. So I have a confession to make. I have a girl crush on J Lo. Not the team switching kinda crush. The I-really-think-we'd-make-great-friends kinda crush.

I used to think that Angelina Jolie and I were going to be great friends one day. But reality hit home on that one. Other than being moms and thinking Brad Pitt is hot, we really don't have that much in common. So I've moved on. To Jenny From The Block.

But now she and Marc Anthony are getting a divorce. "This was a difficult decision," she told People Magazine. "We have come to amicable conclusions on all matters."

What? But you danced while he sang on American Idol! How could this happen so suddenly? That's okay, I'm your friend and I can support you on this.

But then I find out that she might not even come back as a judge on American Idol. In fact, I felt blindsided when I heard her say on BBC Radio, "I don't know. I haven't been forced to make a decision and I'm glad about that because honestly I'm very on the fence about it."

On the fence or On The Floor, J Lo? Which is it? Because if I'm being honest, I feel a bit used. I was ready to move on from American Idol and then you breezed in with your sweetness, honesty and really amazing hair and make-up and I stayed on for another season.

I'm beginning to think we don't have that much in common either.

So now I must find another Hollywood mom actress/singer/model to be my friend. You know, I've always felt a connection to Heidi Klum. She wears great shoes and I love a pair of great shoes.

  1. You are too funny, Missy. I actually started to love J-lo too and I never really payed much attention to her before. As for Heidi, (we are on a first name basis) she's my" girl crush" so you can't have her. She and I are going to be good friends some day....But, You know, you can have Lady Gaga..she was looking pretty good on the MTV music awards or was that Lady Guy Guy????

  2. You're so cute, I love you! Well me and Ang go way back. I have always thought we were long lost sisters and one day we would happen to bump shoulders waiting in line for our cup of coffee, organic of course. Sparks would fly and we would realize that we had found each other after all these years!
