There is an age to be attained before one is considered ‘ageless’. The highlight of the American Music Awards proved, to our immense satisfaction, the truth behind our homespun truism. It came in the shimmering, striated, stippled vision of a throb our teenage years—Jennifer Lopez. There she was, in a black and sheer catsuit and a new, shorter hairdo, writhing, gyrating, splitting the stage in half with a single, gymnastic throw, moving in and out of the ingeniously cast shadows, overshadowing everyone else. Her unequal partner in the rendition of Pa Ti and Lonely was Colombian singer Maluma—not the lumpy thing the name suggests, but quite a pistol himself. More to the point, at 51, J. Lo fully “freaked out” ABC censors with her free expression. That’s iconic.
