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.”
