A Jennifer Lopez mega fan went above and beyond to show his admiration for the star after she was shortlisted for a Golden Globe in the "Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture" category.
Ahead of his JetBlue flight from JFK to LAX, he tweeted the airline, writing: “In honour of JLO’s #GoldenGlobes nomination this morning, I WILL make sure everyone watches Hustlers on this flight.
“Hey @JetBlue, there are definitely Oscar voters on this NY to LA flight. Please let me make an announcement!”
Soon after, Longo uploaded avideo, where the pilot is heard overhead heralding “a special request from one of our customers, Mr. Joseph Longo.”
“He’s a well-known backup dancer for Jennifer Lopez, and as of this morning, Jennifer Lopez was nominated for a Golden Globe for her work in Hustlers,” the pilot continued.
“Hustlers is one of our in-flight movie options. We’d greatly appreciate if you join us in supporting Ms. Lopez and watch Hustlers on our flight today. Thanks for your support, and we hope Jennifer wins that Oscar.”
Longo clarified in his tweet caption that he actually told them he was “The Backup JLo”, not her backup dancer.
But the diva didn’t mind the mix-up,posting: “This is amazing!!!!!!! You can be my backup dancer any day. THANK YOU FOR THE SUPPORT!”
