Bon Jovi frontman Jon Bon Jovi remains baffled by Jennifer Lopez's musical success, because she can't play an instrument. The ALWAYS rocker is grateful for the recent resurgence of rock, following years of pop from manufactured acts who rely on teams of producers and songwriters to create their number one hits. And he names the PLAY singer as the dominant culprit. Bon Jovi rants, "It was so sickening to see some of these people - I've got to say her name - like J.Lo, sitting at a piano in a video, thoughtfully 'writing' a lyric. I was so frustrated. "I wanted to say to her, 'Hey J.Lo, here's my guitar honey. Sing me a song,' and see what would happen. "There's J.Lo having number one movies and albums and I'm thinking, 'What the f**k! Who is going to find the next Bob Dylan?'"

Although I am a Bon Jovi fan, I'm not sure I understand Jon's comments regarding JLo. He says he's baffled by her success?Take a look at her Jon! Here are some of the reasons:1. She's gorgeous2. She is a good actress. She blew me away, in "Selena" and "Enough".3. She can dance, and has great moves.4. She's a decent singer.5. She's funny and doesn't take herself too seriously.(unlike other people)Since when does a singer have to be able to play an instrument or write their own material to be a success?Cher is one of many other singers who write very few of their own lyrics, doesn't write music, and Jon has contributed his talent to one of her album's, yet he's not dissing her.JLo has many fans as does Jon. I hate it when people knock Jon or Bon Jovi and will defend them as an artist to the death, so therefore it bothers me when someone whom I admire does just what those other hatemongers do.His continued attack on other celebrities BAFFLES me!C'mon Jon, lighten up. When you criticize other celebs for their talent or lack of it, the only one who looks bad is you.I still am a fan, but you really puzzled me this time.SA

There are no rules saying a singer must play a musical instrument to be a musician. Having a good voice is itself an instrument. I'm not comparing Jennifer Lopez to Billie Holiday, Bob Dylan, Frank Sinatra, or Marc Anthony, but no one would group Jon Bon Jovi in with their calibre either. ~ I'm tired of people dissing Lopez as an actress. Up thru 1998, she received very good film reviews. She was chosen out of many to dance on "In Living Color", to portray the life of the murdered singer Selena, and to co-star with George Clooney in "Out of Sight". Jen wasn't a star yet; she got the parts because she was good and stood out from the rest. ~ I think some of her acting began to slide when she became "J.Lo", part of " Bennifer", and started spreading herself too thin. People who claim Jennifer could never act are trying to rewrite history, for personal reasons. Jen's being more particular again. Have been hearing good word-of-mouth about a couple of films she's finished . I know Mr. Bon Jovi had wanted to get into movies; wonder how that's going lately. ~ "Baffled" Jon might feel better if he eliminated the sour grapes and stopped taking himself too seriously.
