Jennifer Lopez Vs. Justin Timberlake

Jennifer Lopez Vs. Justin Timberlake

Who do you like the best Jennifer Lopez or Justin Timberlake?


Jennifer Lopez

Before Beyoncé, Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez entertained millions. What is more, she still wows the crowd with her versatile skills. She sings, acts, dances, produces, and judges to perfection.

JLO is simultaneously confident and humble. Did you know she began as a dancer? Yes, indeed… and, that’s why the Latina deserves our respect.

Newbies should pay close attention to her career. She turned nothing into something. And, Lopez made a lot from a little.

As a result of her success, she is internationally recognized and universally accepted. No one denies her talent. It is truly amazing to watch her in action.


Jennifer is the first to say she got it from her mama. JLO is a sweetheart. Her image is intact.

She is a fine actress and dancer.  She’s also a superb singer. You can’t say one bad thing about her.

You appreciate the fact she stays grounded. Jennifer is not vying for attention. She’s not desperate at all.

So, why can’t we get enough of her? The answer: because she is gifted. Here lies the “Kim Kardashian problem.”

You may argue Kardashian is better looking than Lopez. I give you that because Kim is younger and more self-absorbed. The two beauties are both very pleasing to the senses.

But, JLO has talent. So, JLO is way more entertaining than Kim. That’s a fact.



The Puerto Rican American Idol can do everything at a high level. There is a difference. She’s terrific in all areas.

She is one of the most talented female entertainers in show business. I believe Beyoncé is entertainer of the year though. Although I love Beyoncé, her acting is not as great as JLO. Singing is a different story. Beyoncé’s pipes are flawless.

Now, you must understand Jennifer Lopez paid her dues. She received her big break while starring in the biopic Selena. I’ve seen this movie 100 times and not by choice.

If you ever take a Spanish class, you will have to watch Selena. I didn’t mind seeing it 99 times because JLO is just awesome. But 100 times, is 1 too many.

Who remembers the Wedding Planner? Did you see the Cell, Maid in Manhattan and Monster-in-Law? Did you know Jennifer Lopez is the richest Hollywood actress?

She paved the way for Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato and Vanessa Hudgens. All three owe her a few million dollars. JLO proves you can be successful by pursuing your true love.

Currently, she is the highest paid TV judge. Why does she command $17.5 million? Part of the answer: because she is lucky.

My last post How to Be Famous in Seven Steps gives you a plan. JLO is more than just one of my top pop starsShe is one of my favorite entertainers. Justin Timberlake makes my list too.

You have to see this video.


As you can see, Justin Timberlake along with Britney Spears started on the Disney channel.  Timberlake has been in the entertainment business at least 20 years. Remember, you are rewarded for longevity.

As you put more skin in the game, your name gets bigger. This is the key to fame. Ask Lady Gaga.

If you do anything long and good enough, you become an expert. It’s safe to say Justin is a premier entertainer. Like JLO, Justin has a variety of professional skills.

He sings, dances and produces. 
By the way, Timberlake is a great actor. One day I can see him winning an Oscar. He came close with the In Time movie. Nobody is more dedicated than Timberlake. He puts on his suit and tie and goes to work despite not having a typical 9 to 5 job.


Do you remember when Justin took a hiatus from singing to focus solely on acting? He gave up easy money for the sake of his profession. Talk about commitment!

His wife Jennifer Beal is in Seventh Heaven, because Justin Timberlake commits 110 percent. He hosted Saturday Night Live five timesHe played in the Facebook movie. And, Justin deserves credit for his business savvy.

To the contrary, Timberlake is a better singer than actor unlike Jennifer who is a great actress. Here’s a thought: how about making a movie or music video featuring JLO and Justin. I would like to see that. Would you?

If you’re a young man, use Justin Timberlake as a role model. He takes care of business then pleasure. It should always be a pleasure doing business.

I live by the motto: be cool and have fun. Nobody has more fun than JTimberlake. He acts, sings and looks cool. The girls think he’s hot.

You know Justin was a Disney Kid. Did you also know he was in the boy band N’Sync? Here’s video proof.


Justin Timberlake is on top of the world right now. His acting career is just beginning. He’s successful because he’s rare. 

When you get famous, don’t forget to develop your talents in other areas. Not only will you make more money, you will garner more respect. Seize your opportunities like JLO and Timberlake.

Someday soon Justin will reach the point where he doesn’t have to audition. Screenwriters will write roles specifically with Timberlake in mind. Jennifer Lopez is already there and so is Jamie Foxx.

Jamie Foxx is underrated. The actor/musician/comedian wears many hats.  If you ask me, he’s probably the most gifted man in the entertainment industry. The movie Ray starring Foxx is an absolute must-see.

However, Justin Timberlake is too big to ignore. He’s the definition of mainstream. He has global appeal and world wide reach. You won’t build a brand bigger than Timberlake.

Newbies take note. He is not arrogant. He is confident and humble like Jennifer Lopez. My advice is to build your confidence and practice humility. This is all about reputation.
