J Lo's Got A New Flash dance

10 years ago

The good news about Jennifer Lopez's homage to "Flashdance" in her "I'm Glad" video is that she's apparently so impressive that the studio behind the original 1983 film is talking with the actress about a remake.

The bad news is Paramount Pictures is also threatening J. Lo's label with copyright infringement claims. Lopez's dance sequences in the video are so similar to the moves Jennifer Beals' double performs in the movie that the studio feels it should be compensated.

A spokesperson for Epic Records said the issue is being settled and had no further comment. J-Lo's spokesperson said "Flashdance" is one of her favorite movies and that the "I'm Glad" video is meant to pay tribute to the film.
