Check out Kidzworld's review of Latino singing sensation/actress Jennifer Lopez's CD J. Lo. She shows off her rhymes on the first song, Love Don't Cost a Thing.

2001 (Epic)

Everyone's fave Latino singing sensation/actress/fashion plate Jennifer Lopez is back with her second CD entitled J.Lo. Jennifer Lopez shows off her rhyming ability on the first song, Love Don't Cost a Thing - a catchy hip-hop number with a good beat. The theme of the song is independence as she sings "Think I wanna drive your Benz - I don't!" with authority. It's unknown whether Puff Daddy influenced the idea for the song, but Puffy (minus the entourage) did help with the hip-hop feel as one of the album's producers.

Love don't Cost a Thing is headed for dance-hit success, along with the equally catchy song Play. Play is a groovy dance tune full of shake-your-booty beats and keyboards that sound so funky you'd swear she kidnapped Prince! The overall groove of Jennifer Lopez's J.Lo is pop, hip-hop and a twist of flamenco - gone disco.

J.Lo has a couple of playful ballads like the sexy Come Over and Secretly, but after that I lost interest. It seems natural for her to make us dance, but some of the love ballads were sappy enough to put me to sleep. Luckily though, the upbeat songs out number coma-causing ballads. Dance songs like I'm Real, Walking on Sunshine and We Gotta Talk are catchy enough and Dance With Me, is a cool song with "sonic" sounding beats and scratching.

Jennifer Lopez returns to her Latino roots with lots of Spanish horns, cha-cha beats and guitars throughout the album. And Jennifer Lopez even sings a Spanish duet with singer Cheyan. Grab your sombrero and hit the beach with Si Ya Se Acaro, another upbeat Spanish tune. If you liked J. Lo's radio hits like Waiting for the Night and If You Had My Love then add J.Lo to your CD stash, but watch out for those boring ballads!

When Matt Smith took over from David Tennant I was thinking it was gonna be horrible and then after the second episode I thought he was epicals too.  At first I was thinking Capaldi looked alot older but I like things hes done so far and hes still Doctor Who but the different actor..  and Im thinking hes gonna be awesome too.

He's around the same age as the First Doctor and a few other Classic Doctors, so I don't really think he's "too" old. But I guess after Matt and David it's a big change.

Matt Smith was the best doctor. When he first came I was like 'nah, no-one can beat david tennant' but he's definitely my favourite now. Im not sure Capaldi is right for the doctor. He's a great actor but he's too old :P
