When Will Marc Anthony Stop Crying and Sing Again?
Following his nasty, shocking split from America's favorite Latina ice queen, salsa-pop singer and semi-serious actor Marc Anthony's been in the news a lot.
Of course, when we say news, we mean that his bony face has been splashed all over tabloid rags, celebrity gossip websites, and supposedly reputable entertainment mags, alongside embarrassing headlines like "Marc Anthony 'Begging' Jennifer Lopez 'to Take Him Back.'"
Yes, unfortunately, the focus of all this recent attention has been Anthony's alleged crying over getting dumped by J-Lo. Or, well, making other famous guys cry -- i.e. former Fresh Prince and A-list movie star Will Smith -- by supposedly sleeping with their wives.
Indeed, everyone's heard the stupid, old proverb that says, "Any press is good press." But that's bullcrap. It takes no more than a hot minute, especially in the age of the internet, for a once-legit entertainer (ex. Wacko Jacko, Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan, etc.) to become a permanent pop gossip punchline.
So we here at Crossfade would really like to know: When will Marc Anthony sing again? The answer: On Friday, September 16, and Saturday, September 17, at the American Airlines Arena. It's gonna be a two-night stand. And while it's unlikely that he'll end up crying or sleeping with anyone's wife, we suggest you bring a fresh box of Kleenex and keep a close eye on your lady.
After all, with Marc Anthony crooning his way through weepy songs about love, betrayal, and other tabloid-y drama, it's not entirely out of that question that you could return from a too-long trip to the AAA's concession stand to find ol' Skeletor shedding tears all over your significant other.
Marc Anthony. Friday, September 16, and Saturday, September 17. American Airlines Arena, 601 Biscayne Blvd., Miami. The concerts begin at 8 p.m. and tickets cost $58 to $178 plus fees via ticketmaster.com. Call 786-777-1000 or visit aaarena.com.
