Jennifer Lopez needs no introduction. She is one of the most popular faces in the industry today. The veteran singer has given fans numerous hit songs over the years. Recently, the pop-diva was accused of cutting dancers because of astrology.
“Glee” alum Heather Morris, who worked as a professional dancer for many years, claimed on the “Just Sayin’ with Justin Martindale” podcast that Jennifer Lopez once took dancers out of auditions for one of her tours based on their astrological sign. She alleged that the 53-year-old star walked into the room after a long day of auditions and said,
“Thank you so much, you guys have worked so hard. By a show of hands, if there are any Virgos in the room, can you just raise your hand?”
Morris claimed Lopez then whispered something to her assistant and told the dancers who were Virgos, “Thank you so much for coming,” revealing they “had to leave after a full day of auditioning for Jennifer Lopez.” When host Justin Martindale asked if the story was true, the “Dancing With the Stars” alum joked that it was all “hearsay.”
Earlier in the clip, Morris had already emphasized the difficulty of a dance audition to highlight how ridiculous Lopez’s purported justification for excluding applicants was. She asserted, “You’re not getting paid, you’ve been there since 10 a.m. and you’re auditioning until 6 p.m.,” She added, “You’re not getting any money. People judging you the whole time.”
It should be noted, why the “Hustlers” star, who is a Leo, doesn’t like Virgos is still a mystery. Meanwhile, the pop-star has yet to officially address Heather’s bizarre claims. Keep checking on Thirsty for further updates.
