The New York Daily News reports execs at Coty weren’t happy to see some of their employees speaking out about Jennifer Lopez not dedicating 100% of her trip to New York to promoting their joint-marketed fragrances. “Whatever anybody has heard, it’s untrue,” said Paul Wilmot, spokesman for J.Lo’s company Sweetface Fashion. “Jennifer was thrilled to participate in a promotion for Glow and Still for five hours at Macy’s on Sunday. The Coty people were over the moon.”
‘Shall We Dance?’ Without Jennifer Lopez
September 15, 2004 – The New York Post reports that for Jennifer’s new film ‘Shall We Dance?’, which opens October 15th, the movie poster depicts Richard Gere dancing solo in the rain – without a trace of J.Lo, who plays his sexy dance teacher. “The ‘we’ in the title certainly suggests two people, but not showing Gere’s partner, one of the most famous bodies in the world, seems weird,” says Martin Grove, a marketing columnist for the Hollywood Reporter. “Perhaps budgets have gotten so tight at Miramax that they couldn’t afford to show two people in the poster.”
Pat O’Brien And Rob Silverstein Snipe Over J.Lo/Marc
September 15, 2004 – Former best pals Pat O’Brien of the newly launched ‘The Insider’ and his ex-boss and ‘Access Hollywood’ executive producer Rob Silverstein are sniping at each other in The New York Daily News. “I find it interesting that they could have Steven Cojocaru interview Jennifer Lopez and never once ask her about Marc Anthony,” Silverstein said. “What kind of deal did they cut?” O’Brien fired back, “I am surprised that Rob doesn’t know she’s married to Marc Anthony. I think everybody knows that. Rob is used to sending Nancy O’Dell out there to ask everybody ‘Who are you dating?’ We don’t do that. We’re not a tabloid.”
Coty Upset With Jennifer Lopez’s Multi-Tasking
September 14, 2004 – Coty flew in Jennifer to New York City for Fashion Week but the fragrance company that markets her Glow and Still perfumes isn’t happy that she’s been promoting other projects while in town. “They brought her up here for their 100th anniversary gala [at the American Museum of Natural History] Sunday night, but earlier in the day, she did a promotion at Macy’s – but for her clothing line J.Lo – not her perfumes,” a source told The New York Daily News. The diva was also in attendance at Tommy Hilfiger’s fashion show Thursday, sucking much of the publicity from her appearance at the Coty show on Sunday.
Marc Anthony Absent While Jennifer Lopez Hangs With Diddy
September 13, 2004 – A source tells Alloy.com that at Tommy Hilfiger’s fashion show in New York City last week, Jennifer demanded total privacy for herself backstage. “J.Lo’s security scoped the lounge out for over two hours and then cleared the entire room for her,” a source said. After the room was cleared, J.Lo and her posse that didn’t include hubby Marc Anthony spent time with ex-lover Sean ‘P. Diddy’ Combs.
