Orientalize Me

Jennifer Lopez is getting dised by both Tom & Lorenzo Fabulous and Opinionated and Angry Asian Man for a series of Asian-inspired photos for TOUS Jewelry:

Yes, it’s pretty Orientalist but I don’t find it offensive. I think the pictures are kind of cheeky cute. Is J Lo pulling a Janet?

You remember Janet Jackson’s Oriental fabulous music video “If” set in a futuristic Chinese club, right?

I love that video as it put so many hot Asians on screen. That’s not so bad after all? We can all enjoy a dash of harmless Orientalist fun once in a while.
