Wedged between Jay-Z, the Olsen twins, Ted Kennedy and Michael Jackson, The Daily Beast plucked American Mezzo Jennifer Rivera for their Week in Culture round-up, citing her inherent coolness factor, and how she's managed to spice-up opera with good old-fashioned secks appeal. And we're certainly not going to argue with that.
But if one were so inclined to google ~Jennifer Rivera~, what are the chances to discover the down-to-earth, pants-role-singing mezzo's steamier side?
Well, zero, actually.
Because it's really not her fault that she shares a common name with a certain Mexican pop star that's more famous for her steamy leaked internet spicy video than her talent.
We're not necessarily suggesting that opera stars should resort to such ruthless tactics (*cough* Paris Hilton, Pamela Anderson & Kim Kardashian) to get their names in the playbills or top-tier opera houses -- rather, if that's the game plan, remember the golden rules: matching bras & panties and no barnyard animals.
