Is Jennifer Lopez an iconic music video artist? The answer is almost certainly no, unless by “iconic music video artist” you mean “artist whose music videos aired on television often enough when I was in high school that I vaguely remember them now.” Is she famous enough that people might tune in to watch her … More »
