Jennifer Lopez’s Monologue

…..Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez: Thank you! You know, somewhere along the way, I picked up the reputation for being a diva. But I ask you, would a diva be seen on stage wearing this? Come on! Would a diva put up with people endlessly talking about her ass? Would a diva let her hair look like this? [ make-up artist touches up her hair ] Thank you. [ back to subject at hand ] So, how did I, Jennifer Lopez, get a reputation for acting like a diva? You know, I mean, it’s not like I have tons of people around me all the time — [ make-up artist touches up her fingernails ] I’m just a girl from the Bronx. And tonight is really special to me. I have my family here – especially, my Mom, whom I owe a lot of my success to. I mean, she’s the one who taught me to do things for myself. [ make-up artist touches up her eyelash ] Thanks, they’ve been sticking together all day. But the most important lesson I learned from my Mom was to be prepared. So, Mom, I want you to know that tonight, I am definitely prepared. [ removes bathrobe to reveal loose-fitting green dress she wore at the Grammys ] Would a diva ever wear Versace? We’ve got a great show – Jennifer Lopez is here as my musical guest! So, stick around, we’ll be right back!
