Jennifer Lopez Planning Rainbow Birthday Party for Her Twins

Jennifer Lopez may be capable of juggling many activities at once, but her primary responsibility right now is planning the birthday party for her twins, Max and Emme.

“They’re 5 next month, and they want a rainbow party. Lots of rainbow stuff!” Lopez told reporters at Wednesday night’s L’Oreal and Cinema Society New York screening of her new thriller, Parker.

“I don’t know [what that means],” says the singer and actress, 43. “Very colorful?”

Although upbeat for her premiere, Lopez wasn’t shy about discussing her painful split from Marc Anthony – which, it turned out, also influenced her movie role.

“It was very difficult,” she explains, “so in front of kids and at work you have to be so professional and you have to be so up for your children in that moment.”

Her screen character “was going through the worst moment of her life, and I had just gone through divorce literally like a month before, so it was hard to get [up in the morning] — that’s why we added the scene at the beginning when she had trouble getting out of bed.”

Still, she called filming the movie cathartic, saying: “I was lucky to be in front of the cameras and act exactly how I felt, so it was a blessing.”

You’re a miserable b*tch Janet. Hope you find some happiness at some point in your life so you won’t find it necessary to try and rain on other people’s parades with ugly comments like this.

NW Mama on

A rainbow party, how fun! what mom does not know what their kid’s want? Oh yeah, a mom that is never around and always working and going out to party all of the time. I know she loves her job, but she has children to raise, don’t let the nannies do it for you. JLo has the money to not work and spend every minute with her kids, so why doesn’t she?????

I know I would!!!!! Children grow up way too fast as it is.

Casper is going to disappeared like the friendly ghost .

Rainbows are the flag for fags……why didn’t she explain that to the kids….?

Such ignorance on this posting! When she said, “I don’t know what that means” its more of how to plan out at a rainbow party. Not as NW Mama claims, she doesn’t know what her kids wants. She knows what they want but not how to execute it.

And making jokes about gay rights is truly immature and heartbreaking. So many tragic suicides and bullying for those who are gay and people make jokes about it. People should care about each other more and not criticize…

@ Janet! Thanks for the laugh, lol!

From Marc Anthony to some boring boy toy dancer named Casper. An epic upgrade by a very smart woman!
