J. Lo's New Status

09/29/1997 at 12:00 AM EDT

Jennifer Lopez, Queen of All Media? It's looking that way. Despite its critical drubbing, her new movie, "The Wedding Planner," which debuted last Friday, was the weekend's No. 1 movie, raking in nearly $15 million. Now her new album, "J. Lo," has hit No. 1 on the album charts, selling more than 272,000 copies in its first week. That means that the CD will debut at No. 1 on next week's Billboard album charts, Billboard.com reported Wednesday. How impressive is that? Well, for the past eight weeks, the top spot on the Billboard chart had been monopolized by the Beatles, for their "1," a re-issue of their top-selling hits. Elsewhere in the media it has been reported that Lopez, 30, will serve as a witness in the weapons possession and bribery trial of her boyfriend, rap impresario Sean "Puffy" Combs, if she is requested to make an appearance.
