J.Lo’s Mom Was All Of Our Puerto Rican Mothers Throwing Side-Eye At A-Rod

Over the weekend, Puerto Rican princess Jennifer Lopez was spotted walking with her elegant mom, Guadalupe Rodríguez, and none other than her recent boo, Alex Rodríguez. They were all photographed together several times. Guadalupe, a Puerto Rican grandmother, told an entire story with her facial expressions. We’re an expressive people, us Boricuas.

It is no longer a secret that J.Lo and A-Rod are a couple, as he recently spoke openly about it on “The View.”

There it is, all the proof you need.

Bringing home a new boyfriend or girlfriend in a Latino household is a big deal. Usually, it means things are getting pretty serious. You wouldn’t bring any ol’ person around the woman who gave you life. One, because you absolutely respect your Latino parents. And two, they’ll embarrass you by making rude comments or asking embarrassing questions.

For example, my grandmother has discussed the weight of every person I’ve ever brought home. Friend, mentor, girlfriend — doesn’t matter. “Gordita,” “flaquita,” “caderona,” “nalgona,” “delgadita” – all of it. She always means well, but it never seems to come out that way.

Guadalupe, like many Puerto Rican grandmothers I know, is no stranger to expressing her true feelings. Look at her expressions in the photos below, where I imagined what embarrassing things she was saying based on my own wisdom of Puerto Rican grandma-isms.

Guadalupe: “Are you planning on getting back in shape since you’re not playing sports anymore, or is this it?”

Lopez: “Mom, he’s in great shape!”

Guadalupe: “What was it like dating Madonna, you know we’re about the same age right?”

Lopez: “Mom, I don’t even know what to say right now. You’re embarrassing me.”

Guadalupe: “You love him? Pfft. Haha! How many times have I heard that?”

Lopez: “It doesn’t matter how many times I’ve said it, just that I mean it when I do, ma!”

Guadalupe: “Oh my God, can we go already?”

Lopez: “A-Rod, I’m so sorry. She’s usually well behaved.”

Guadalupe: “Think you and my daughter might have ki– oh wait, after the steroids, can you even have kids?”

Lopez: “Ma, that is so inappropriate… but, like, wait… can you?”

Guadalupe: “You always let her walk on that side of the street? She opens her own doors too? Hm?”

Lopez: “Ma! I don’t need no man to open my doors!”

Guadalupe: “I hope you like Mofongo, we don’t do Mangu in this household. ¿Me escuchas?”

 Lopez: “Of course he can hear you, you’re yelling at him, Mamí.”

Guadalupe: “Now that you’re unemployed what are your future plans?”

 Lopez: “Mom, he’s very successful. He once owned a Mercedes dealership. Right, hun?”

Guadalupe: “Are those the new Derek Jeter shoes? Did you know he has his own line with Nike?”

Lopez: “Mom!”

Guadalupe: “Give you my blessing? I don’t see pigs flying, do you?”

Lopez: “That was actually a good one, I’ll give you that.”

San Antonio Fans Got Treated To J.Lo Singing ‘Si Una Vez’ And We Have Serious FOMO

Discover Laredo / YouTube

Jennifer Lopez arguably became a household name after she portrayed Selena in the biopic about the iconic Mexican-American singer. Since then, J.Lo has become a musical, acting, and producing force in the entertainment industry. Now, at 50, the Puerto Rican superstar is on a new tour and fans in San Antonio were treated to a special cover when she belted out “Si Una Vez” by Texas legend Selena Quintanilla.

J.Lo really showed up for her San Antonio audience with her “Si Una Vez” song after admitting it was her favorite.

At the beginning of the video, J.Lo asks the audience if they want to hear a little Selena. Like, what kind of question is that to ask a Texas audience? Of course, they want to hear some Selena. After asking the crowd which song would be best she told them that “Si Una Vez” is her favorite and that sent the crowd into a frenzy.

Fans were so excited to learn J.Lo’s favorite Selena song because we all have one.

Finding someone with the same favorite Selena song as you is so amazing. Legit, one of the most telling signs of how long your friendship and relationship will last is the Selena test. Do they know who Selena is? Do they like her music? Do you have the same favorite Selena song? This is crucial

Seeing the woman who brought Selena to the big screen was one of the most touching moments for so many people.

Hearts fluttered. Angels got wings. Moods were lifted. It was a physical moment for so many people who could feel the love from the stage. It was as if Selena was on stage in J.Lo’s body giving us the concert we have been craving.

While all of the concertgoers were melting down, social media people also lost their minds over the cover.

It’s like Thalía taking time during her concert to give the fans a taste of Jenni Rivera. Who wouldn’t want to be there for that moment? It feels like a special connection between the singer and the audience as they give praise and attention to a shared icon.

This is one way to ring in your 50th birthday, J.Lo.

There is one thing everyone knows for sure, J.Lo is a force that cannot be overlooked. She is a strong and powerful singer. A recognizable actor. A successful producer. But, most importantly, she is a Selena fan who gives the Tejano singer the respect and love she deserves.

Watch the full performance below.

Thank you, J.Lo. You know how to make your shows something to remember.

People Stared At J.Lo’s Butt, Cardi B Was A Walking Period, And More Things You’ll Only See At The Met Gala

@eltuiterdejorge / Twitter

If you missed the highly exclusive 2019 Met Gala last night, not to worry–we’ll always have the chisme. Last year, Cardi attended the infamous Gala for the first time dressed like royalty, and gave us all the Nicki Minaj drama we wanted.

This year, Katy Perry struggled to get a hamburger suit on, fans are arguing over whether Cardi most resembles a period or Nicki Minaj’s gown last year, and so much more bizarre drama went down. Vamos a ver.

Behold: Queen Cardi.

@enews / Twitter

Rumor has it that it took 35 designers a collective 2,000 hour to sew this dress together. It also took four men to hold up her train, following her wherever she went last night.

Of course, the Bardi Gang took to Twitter to talk about Nicki Minaj’s outfit.

@OhioHomesteader / Twitter

Was there ever a feud? Probably, a little bit, yes, but the fanships are at war over it. Who do you think looked more on the camp theme? Tbh, Nicki Minaj told one reporter that the “interpretation” of camp in her outfit is on her designer.

Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj fans are saying that Cardi B just remixed two previous Met Gala dresses.

@OfficialDruggie / Twitter

It’s true that Cardi B’s dress was a showstopper, and some Twitter folks are wishing they could nap under what they think looks like the most comfortable duvet ever.

Other folks are applauding Cardi’s take on “Uterine Lining Eleganza.”

@theAljohnCapz / Twitter

Twitter, you are a trip. Cardi B once said, “Never Again” for being mistaken as a vagina, so she went one step further. We can’t wait to see her Instagram story about how we shouldn’t make her red dress about periods.

The fanart is here because it has been 24 hours so there has been enough time.

@eltuiterdejorge / Twitter

“Cardi B #MetaGala appreciation post.”

Honestly, this is the most solid way to portray her period-inspired dress. This is either a way for Cardi B to take a big stand for women, or she was just really digging a red dress this day.

Honestly, once again, Cardi is lifting up women.

@LisaAnnWalter / Twitter

Whether she knows it or not, women are loving this look and honoring their periods all over Twitter. So far, Cardi hasn’t acknowledged this trend.

Also, did Offset and Cardi sext over the Internet?

@iamcardib / Twitter

Their music is one ode to sexting, but dang, these newlyweds are living their best life. We ship a man who publicly, in all caps, worships his “wifey.” Good for them keeping their relationship alive and fresh in the 21st century.

This anonymous man was caught red-handed staring at J.Lo’s booty.

@Instyle / Twitter

The Internet is currently deeply relating to his experience. They are also trying to figure out who the young man is that risked it all for a quick glimpse of the singer’s backside.

J.Lo savagely walked right past a struggling Katy Perry trying to don a hamburger costume?

@AlejoRoa21 / Twitter

She’s too in character with Camp to deal with these outlandish shenanigans. Also, she is already slaying her look so why would she take the time to help someone get into their hamburger suit?

Salma Hayek kissed Jared Leto’s creepy doppelgänger head, as one would.

@mladyrebecca / Twitter

It’s camp, so we don’t really know what’s going on here, but it seems as if Jared Leto brought a replica of his entire head with him. Who hasn’t wanted to do this to make sure everyone in the room knows who the best dressed it?

Salma and Penelope Cruz’s best friendship seems stronger than ever.

@leiaftsolo / Twitter

These two spent the night hanging out with each other and staring into each other’s beautiful brown eyes. We stan a sun goddess and a moon goddess coming together as one.

Camila Mendes and novio Charles Melton made their Met Gala couple debut.

@avery__thompson / Twitter

We’re all wishing anyone would look at us the way these two lovebirds look at each other. That’s a wrap, until next year!
