Jennifer Lopez is getting ready for another major awards show performance. But this time, let’s hope she doesn’t fall on her rear. Lopez is set to accept an award and perform a medley of her hits at this year’s World Music Awards.
The 40-year-old will perform a brand new medley of her greatest hits (she performed one recently at the San Remo Song Festival in Italy). She will also receive an award for her outstanding contribution to the Arts. Lopez previously received the World Music Award for World’s Best-Selling Latin Female Artist in 2002. Also set to perform at the event are Kelly Rowland with David Guetta, 50 Cent, and Akon. Michelle Rodriguez of “Avatar” will host the event, while presenters include names like Mel B, Kim Kardashian, and Bar Rafaeli. This year’s nominees include Black Eyed Peas, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, David Guetta, Kings of Leon, and more. The 2010 World Music Awards will take place on May 18th in Monte Carlo.
These are our top 10 2009 beach bodies today with number 1. Enjoy No.1 – Bar Rafaeli. When Leonardo DiCaprio and Gisele Bundchen ended their tumultuous relationship in 2005, many thought the actor was mad to give up a woman often pegged as the most beautiful in the world. Then photos of Leo and a relatively unknown Israeli model named Bar Rafaeli surfaced, and the world collectively wondered, “Gisele who?” Since then, Rafaeli has emerged as one of the most recognizable supermodels in the world, and after gracing the cover of the latest Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, Bar instantly became the gold standard for bikinis in 2009.
sensation in print and on the catwalks in her native Israel, supermodel Bar Refaeli gained Hollywood attention thanks to her well-publicized, off-camera relationship with Titanic and Catch Me If You Can star Leonardo DiCaprio. Refaeli also posed for the 2008 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.
Top 10: 2009 Beach Bodies So far, 2009 has been a year of epic change, for better and for worse. We’ve seen a new president take office, igniting the hopes of a public that has long been in dire shortage of it. The economy is still sputtering, America’s national pastime is a dope show replete with fallen giants, and not even fairytale Hollywood romances are safe. Surely, one man can’t turn all this lead into gold, and certainly not in his first 100 days, right? So where do we turn, then, to escape the madness, to avoid the headlines, to hide from our dwindling bank statements? Why, to the beach, of course! Because for every Bernie Madoff, there’s a Bar Rafaeli; for every Manny Ramirez, there’s a Marisa Miller, and for every Spencer Pratt, there’s a Heidi Montag. These are our top 10 2009 beach bodies starting with number 10 . If you come back tomorrow you will find number 9 here, and so on for ten days long. Enjoy!
Top 10: 2009 Beach Bodies
No.10 – Rihanna
Growing up in Barbados, we can only assume that Rihanna spent her formative years perfecting the art of wearing a bikini; then she became a superstar, got involved with an insecure pip-squeak whose last name rhymes with “clown,” saw her personal photographs leaked online, and now must battle to regain her rightful place atop the pop charts. Might we suggest doing it in a bikini?
Rihanna established her dance-pop credentials in summer 2005 with her debut smash hit, “Pon de Replay,” and continued to demonstrate such hit potential in subsequent years (e.g., “S.O.S.” in 2006; “Umbrella” in 2007; “Disturbia” in 2008). However, it was the singer’s third album, Good Girl Gone Bad, that made her a full-fledged international pop star with a regular presence atop the charts. Born Robyn Rihanna Fenty on February 20, 1988, in Saint Michael, Barbados, she exhibited a certain star quality as a young child, often winning beauty and talent contests. Because she lived on the fairly remote island of Barbados in the West Indies, however, she never foresaw the sort of stardom that would later befall her.
