Celebs: They're just like us -- only better looking and dumber: Hall of Fame inductee

Is that a mic in your pocket
or are you just happy to see me?
Celebrities are often incredibly self-centered and woefully out of touch.  That's a given.  But then there's Jennifer Lopez who takes all of this to a new level.

Yesterday "Jenny from the Block" was on Today with Matt Lauer promoting her show that I think is called Latin America's Got Talent.  She opened the interview complaining to Lauer about the last time she was on the morning program.

LAUER: You started by saying I stiffed you last time.

LOPEZ: You did. Last time you were supposed to interview me I was here.  Something happened.  Some big news story.  And you left.  And I was all alone."

This seems relatively inconsequential (although grammatically horrific) until you realize the date of the interview she's referring to.  It was May 2, 2011.  That was the morning after President Barack Obama announced SEAL Team 6 had killed the world's most wanted terrorist and the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks Osama Bin Laden.  Lopez, on the other hand, was there to promote her latest album Love? and to discuss being named People magazine's "Most Beautiful" person.  How dare they exercise decent news judgement?!

As for whether Lopez was "all alone," well, that's not actually true.  Lopez did a nearly six-minute interview with Meredith Viera. If that wasn't enough, during the drunk hour of Today (the one with Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford), they aired the Lopez's new video "I'm Into You," all four minutes of it.
