Ayo Edebiri Criticizing Jennifer Lopez in 2020 Podcast Resurfaces Ahead of Their ‘SNL’ Appearances


However, it didn’t seem like Edebiri had always been a huge fan of the singer. In 2020, The Bear actress appeared on an episode of The Welfare Queen podcast and claimed Lopez’s entire career was “one long scam.” According to Edebiri, Lopez isn’t actually singing most of her songs, and she read up on some cases that proved she wasn’t. 

“Today I was actually thinking about one of my favorite scams of all time because J. Lo is performing at the Super Bowl Halftime Show,” Edebiri said in the podcast. “Her whole career is one long scam….She thinks she’s on multiple tracks, but it’s not her. I think she thinks that she’s still good even though she’s not singing for most of these songs.”

She continued, “I was fascinated. I became fascinated for myself, and a lot of the write-ups of the songs will be like, ‘J. Lo didn’t have time to make it to the studio,’ like J. Lo was busy.’ It’s like, ‘Doing what?’ Not singing, obviously!”
