Jennifer Lopez's music career evokes Don Corleone's question in The Godfather: How did things ever get so far? How did such a glam movie star turn into such a rinky-dink pop singer? At least on her last album, J. Lo gave us some celebrity dish with "Dear Ben." But unfortunately, Rebirth doesn't include a "Dear That New Guy," or even a "Fine, Ben, Go Throw Your Life Away on That Alias Bitch." "Cherry Pie" is not a Warrant cover, but it's the only fun track on Rebirth — if only because Lopez's handlers probably don't allow her near the pastry tray.

    “You Oughta Know”

    Alanis Morissette | 1995

    This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
