Jennifer Lawrence, the certified Queen of Low-Key Celebs, became the subject of a leaked video “scandal” today which featured her dancing in a Austrian strip club at a friend’s birthday.
In the video, J. Law grinds on an unknown dude, twirls around one of the stripper poles, spanks herself with some dollar bills, and at one point appears to dance around in a brassiere.
The video was published by Radar Online, and the outlet took considerable liberties when describing the clip, saying that it featured “America’s sweetheart cutting loose like a low-rent gogo dancer in a Euro-trash strip club.”
Following the infamous leak of her personal photos, this is yet another prime example of Lawrence’s privacy being infringed upon by people who feel entitled to gaze voyeuristically at her life.
Not surprisingly, J. Law made a rare public statement in response to the negative publicity.
Lawrence wrote on her Facebook page that she wasn’t going to apologize for the video, or her playful antics (and, for the record, she wasn’t topless).
Her note reads:
Nobody wants to be reminded that they tried to dance on a stripper pole by the internet. It was one of my best friend’s birthdays and I dropped my paranoia guard for one second to have fun. I’m not going to apologize, I had a BLAST that night.
Ps that’s not a bra it’s an Alexander Wang top and I’m not gonna lie, I think my dancings pretty good. Even with no core strength.
So, sorry to all of the haters out there who were quick to shame Lawrence for going out and drinking like any red-blooded young person. Turns out, dancing and partying with your friends isn’t really a scandal after all.
Props to Lawrence for standing behind her decisions — and her dance moves.
