Jennifer Lopez has just spent the day travelling to and settling into her hotel suite in Stockholm when her assistant hands her the phone. We've tried to connect with the singer-cum-dancer-cum-social phenomenon twice before over the past 24 hours but fate - and the American's life of almost constant motion - has so far intervened.

J to tha L-O is heading to Honkers for the first time in 11 years, so now's the perfect time to refresh your memory of how she began - or, if you're a child of the noughties, learn she was famous before Idol.

J.Lo fans deserve better

Jennifer Lopez's Love? is an attempt at redeeming herself after two less-than-stellar performances on the album charts. But it does not showcase her singing abilities. Most of the songs are overworked, sounding heavily auto-tuned with heavy beats.

Como Ama una Mujer Jennifer Lopez (CD)

J Lo's second album of the year sees her returning to English dance and R&B following the release of her first all-Spanish collection, Como Ama una Mujer. The songs on her new album Brave do not reflect the title: the album is full of safe, non-genre-challenging numbers that would have been popular in the 1990s.

The album doesn't do anything new.

What's it all about?

Needs another incarnation

Jennifer Lopez has returned with a new album Rebirth but, unfortunately, the music does not live up to the title.

With her limited vocal range, J Lo has always made use of clever backing vocals, musical arrangement and mixing to make her songs more enjoyable.

On style, she rules

The Lo down

I really want to get my hands on the new perfume Glow by J.Lo, but have had no luck in my searches so far. Can I find it in Hong Kong?

Video entertainment acceptable if it can keep down fares

I agree with the views expressed by John Walker on video feeds on buses (letter headlined 'One of the world's best bus services, South China Morning Post, April 18).
