Jennifer Lopez’s Bruised Bum

Jennifer Lopez at the AMAs

Jennifer Lopez’s fall at last month’s American Music Awards left her with an injured derriere.

“I have a bruised bone. What happened was one of the dancers’ backs was slippery from sweat and lights and everything. We never bargained for that because they always had T-shirts on in rehearsal,” Lopez explained. “So they were bare-backed, didn’t have shirts on for the performance, and when I stepped on their backs my feet got wet. So when I landed, it just slipped from under me.”

First Look: Adam Lambert’s For Your Entertainment Video

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Gossip, Music Videos, Pop,


Given Adam Lambert’s performance during Sunday’s American Music Awards, I must say I was a bit surprised by this new clip.

glimpse a few provocative moments here and there, but it they weren’t as obvious as this weekend’s simulated oral sex moment.

So now I’m left confused. Why would Lambert hold back here? Was Adam simply doing on live TV what he wasn’t allowed to do in the video?
