Jennifer Lopez is currently shooting for a 3D concert film, reports Extra. Dance Again will follow the last few years of Lopez's life, during which she released Love?, filed for divorce from husband Marc Anthony, served a stint as a judge on American Idol and became acclimated to parenthood with new twins Emme and Maximilian.

Lopez's movie faces some underwhelming numbers from other recent 3D concert films. Katy Perry's Part Of Me premiered this past July 4th weekend at the number 8 spot with an opening gross of $7.1 million. The Jonas Brothers' 2009 film Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience was ripped by critics and earned a modest $23.1 million worldwide. However, Miley Cyrus' 2008 film Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert was a bigger success, grossing over $29 million domestically in its opening weekend and over $70 million total worldwide. Metallica are also filming their own 3D concert movie. Lopez is currently on tour with Enrique Inglesias.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
