Jennifer Lopez has caused a stir. The 50-year-old has been steadily filling concert venues with her It’s My Party tour as the Middle Eastern leg currently places the singer in Egypt. Earlier this month, JLo played Israel and it looks like she’s in demand across that part of the world.
Photos obtained by The Daily Mail today showed the “Dinero” singer flaunting her famous curves on stage. The look was definitely one that fans expect from Lopez. The American Idol judge was rocking a glittery, shimmery and crystal-adorned bodysuit in lavender pinks and silvers, although the finish was barely there. Jennifer’s plunging neckline was flashing her sexy cleavage, with a similar deal going on lower down. The bodysuit’s style included a cut-out on one leg with the star’s famous booty visible through sheer-netted stockings.
As The Daily Mail reports, this was Jennifer’s first Egyptian performance.
Viewers who read the newspaper’s report have been leaving their thoughts. Responses seemed to cover a range of opinions, varying from praise for the star’s age-defying looks and musical talents to less-flattering remarks. Comments questioning the appropriateness of the outfit given the Muslim location were, however, marked.
“In Egypt? That government put in prison recently belly dancers who had more clothing!!!” one fan wrote.
“Wow she is allowed to perform half naked in Egypt????” another asked.
Fortunately, for concerned or confused viewers, an apparent resident from the country came out to offer some clarity.
“Hi, Ive been living in egypt for the past 27 years, she performed at the coast of Egypt, where Egyptians usually hang out in shorts, skirts… etc the capital of Egypt (Cairo) is where you have to be a bit more conservative (long pants). Other than that Egypt welcomes all religions and cultures,” they wrote.
Helpful as the comment was, this was only a response to one probing fan. Others also appeared suspect regarding how appropriate the outfit was.
“Egypt? Dressed like that?” one asked.
“I wouldn’t be dressed like this in Egypt,” another added.
Fans would likely agree that a star as high-profile as JLo would be sure to do her research ahead of time. If the outfit was, indeed, inappropriate, the star would likely have opted for something more toned-down.
This situation has been explored by the Kardashian-Jenners this year. Kylie Jenner and mother Kris’ Harper’s Bazaar Arabia cover made sure the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star was wearing modest attire.
For the most part, comments were geared towards the outfit itself. Many fans felt that JLo looked nothing short of sensational. Nonetheless, the star’s appearance has apparently raised a few eyebrows.
