Listen: Jennifer Lopez Kills a Barbra Streisand Song (And Not in a Good Way)

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

So according to Perez Hilton, Jennifer Lopez got the brainy idea that she should try to record the Barbra Streisand/Donna Summer power disco ballad classic "Enough is Enough."

But there was one tiny problem. J. Lo can't sing like Babs or Donna. At all. Not even close.

Listen to the audio over the jump and pray that your ears don't bleed.

Apparently J. Lo is crediting Barbra with giving her the inspiration to resume her music career. Jennifer sang a Streisand song for her husband Marc Anthony's 40th birthday back in September and it went so well that she decided to get to work on an album.

Here's what she was reported as saying earlier this month on Showbiz Spy:

“I sang a song for Marc’s 40th birthday called 'My Man,'” she said. “It is an old Barbra Streisand song. But when I sang it — she’s so my idol – I thought, ‘I can’t believe I’m trying to sing a Barbra Streisand song. This is insane. What are you thinking?’ But I sang it and it was almost like I had graduated.


“I needed to get to that point. When I sang it, he had tears in his eyes and we were both like, ‘What was that?’ And it just gave me that, that finally I’m a singer. This is what I do. Nobody can ever make me doubt it again.

“With the acting I was a bit nervous at first. But with this, the first day back at rehearsal I was like, ‘This is what I do.' It felt really good. I was really just so happy to be doing it. When I was finishing up my album and the music was feeling right, everything just came together. It’s been nice to be back on stage and doing my thing. It’s like coming back into the ring.”

Ears preparing to bleed in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1...
