"Jennifer Loplez gives me the creeps" -- that's what I wrote about her four years ago.

She's a girl with enormous drive -- talent for singing, dancing, producing films, dvds, albums, clothes, jewelry, fragrances, beauty products -- remarkable talent for self promotion -- remarkable ability for seeing what she wants and going for it.

I didn't pay much attention to her until I saw her at the 2000 Grammy's, in that Versace gown.  

Whooeee! She was just a "presenter." But she was wearing a spectacularly low-cut, gorgeous, transparent gown, and beholding that marvelous body of hers -- neck to crotch -- everyone who was getting an award was totally upstaged -- not only because of the look of her, but also her nerve -- outrageous nerve of whomever she was. Then and there, Jennifer Lopez was a "name."

Today, fifteen years later, she is THERE -- THERE at the top of show biz fame, showing us and the world how she can do anything -- star above the title in the block buster films she produces, make headlines, marry, make twins, divorce, wear and sell "Jennifer Lopez" clothes, jewelery, perfume, and cosmetics. She is more than THERE -- she's jaw-dropping perfect -- head-to-toe gorgeous, delectable, fabulous, casting her spell on everyone -- except maybe Ben Affleck, with whom she had a hugely publicized romance.

Yes, again and again, there are more unbelievably outrageous appearances in revealing outfits -- whatever role she's playing in her many, many moments at the center of the stage, in a hot spotlight; again and again she's conveying "I LOVE ME -- YOU LOVE ME --  WATCH ME -- APPLAUD ME -- LOVE ME"

I can't hold onto my opinions, my own ambitions when "J.Lo" is center stage, turned on.
I watch her films and I turn into a fan, mesmerized by the story, the subject, the problems she has picked to focus on, and develop in the character she plays. The films, even the ones that haven't gotten good reviews reach me -- they really do. They touch me --  she knows how other women feel and I'm one of the other women.

I've even watched some of her films more than once. They're worth watching. 

Amazing Jennifer Lopez -- she's done it, won, made a huge dream and vision of herself come true. It's more than amazing, it's scary -- that the girl, who got a big break playing the pop star "Selena," has the fire, persistence, intelligence, nerve, fearless energy to keep reaching, reach higher, farther and dream bigger and bigger.

How much bigger can Jennifer Lopez get? The thought that she might go into politics gives me the creeps.

The creeps? Yes. I can't imagine her running any aspect of our government, but the way she's expanding, who knows where she'll head next -- Jennifer Lopez picks what she wants, goes for it, does it, gets it.
