JLo fails to impress Santiago
More News from Maila Ager
MANILA, Philippines—It was a high energy performance that thrilled thousands of cheering fans at the Mall of Asia in Pasay Monday night.
Jennifer Lopez made sure it was a night to remember.
But Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago, who was in the crowd as the 43-year-old Hollywood celebrity sang and danced the night away, wasn’t impressed.
“Let me just say I was not impressed,” Santiago told reporters on Tuesday.
“I was shocked beyond belief at the attack, the assault on my ears,” she said of the concert. “It was so loud, and there were so many people. They turned themselves into a frenzy.”
“Actually they were worshipping at the foot of someone who’s no longer human. She morphed into a digital idol. That was my experience last night,” the sharp-tongued senator said.
A lover of classical music, opera and ballet, Santiago said she only watched the concert “for exposure, total immersion.”
