SHE’S USED TO being centre of attention, but now J-Lo has caused all sorts of controversy in Morocco.

At the end of last month, the singer played a major festival in the country that was also broadcast on national TV – and it was so raunchy that an educational group has claimed that she “disturbed public order and tarnished women’s honor and respect.”

Poor J-Lo – pictured below on stage at the festival:

According to smh, the concert has even gone all the way to the top of Moroccan politics, with the country’s communications minister being forced to comment on the performance – saying that it was “unacceptable and goes against broadcasting law.”

The educational group that is said to be bringing the lawsuit against the singer has not been named, but it has been reported widely that the process to bring it to court has already begun.

Still, the internet is fully supportive of J-Lo’s right to dance:

The outrage is strong in this one – we’ll see how it develops.

Here’s a clip of the performance that has been uploaded to Youtube, so you can see for yourself what all the fuss is about:
