I Stopped Loving Her Today






What’s up with that new Jennifer Lopez song, “I Luh Ya Papi?”

Who says I luh ya?

Besides J.Lo I mean.

It reminds me of a kid that has been told to apologize and says “Sor” so he can avoid saying sorry.

Is J. Lo trying to love Papi but just isn’t quite there?

I’m okay with “Papi,” as many people use pet names, but in this song it sounds like puppy, which is not a good pet name for a person or dog.

I think this song would work better if it had been written for and filmed in an animal shelter. It seems fine to Luh our Puppies, but please…put some clothes on. Pups don't Luh anyone based on hard abs or junk in the trunk. 

And that attempt to reverse the whole sexism thing to make a point? It failed big time when they brought in a fully clothed male rapper with barely dressed female dancers. 

Yep. Should have filmed in a shelter.

Can you imagine Whitney Houston, on stage and all glammed up, belting out “I Will Always Luh You?”

Remember The Captain and Tenille? Not sure I’d want "Luh to Keep us Together."

The Beatles sang, “All You Need is Love.” All you need is Luh? Not working for me.

Imagine the late great George Jones crooning “He Stopped Luhhing Her Today.” Instead of sobbing (you sob when you hear that song, right?) fans would think, he stopped whatting her



 J. Lo, please. Love your Papi, love anyone you wish, but if I hear "I luh ya luh ya luh ya" one more time... well, I'll be singing along to the J. Geils Band tune, "Luh Stinks."

  1. Debbie, I LOVED this. Strongly feel everyone should enunciate much more, junk in the trunk or otherwise.

    Thanks for another epic laugh. Luh ya.

  3. I LUH this! How many times have I reminded my kids, "ENUNCIATE!" J-Lo's mama should've reminded her, too.

  6. I agree Deb! I HATE what I call "lazy" speach...bad enough when they contract multisylable words into single, like "bro" or "bra" for "brother" but how lazy do you have to be to turn love into luh?!?!?
    Though as a man I'm not quite on board with the more clothes...what can I say?
    I'm a dog! ;-)
