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.”

Blessed Be! Jennifer Lopez Is Finally Launching That Skincare Line

Blessed Be! Jennifer Lopez Is Finally Launching That Skincare Line

Just about anyone with a pulse and a heart for makeup knows that Jennifer Lopez established herself as a beauty guru ages ago.

The actress, singer, and business entrepreneur has been an influential part of the beauty industry throughout her decades-long career. Having established dozens of fragrances (the worth sum of which clocks in at a cool a $2 billion), collaborated on a hit makeup line with Inglot and likely inspired hundreds of thousands of women to invest in countless bronzers, there’s no denying that Jennifer Lopez was a beauty influencer long before social media became a thing.

Now, after nearly two years of waiting, Lopez’s new skin-care line is finally about to pop off.

Sunset glow… #JLoBeauty coming soon

A post shared by Jennifer Lopez (@jlo) on

The “Hustlers” actress announced in December 2018, that she had been working on her own skin-care collection for quite some time. After years of holding our breath for the launch, it looks like we’ll only have to wait just a smidge longer.

In a post to her Instagram page, Lopez dropped the news that J.Lo Beauty is coming soon. In the post, the actress shared two selfies, both of which featured that infamous J.Lo glow, and topped off the look with a caption that teased “Sunset glow… #JLoBeauty coming soon.”

Fans on Instagram poured over the picture and expressed their excitement in the comments section. “Make-up line???” one fan commented. “Skin care products???? YESSSS YESS TO EVERYTHING JEN!!”

“Coming soon?! Need that glow!! Looking gorgeous mama,” another chimed in.

Sadly, Lopez did refrain from sharing the launch date of the products and has yet to reveal what to expect out of the new line.

Which isn’t so surprising since Lopez is the queen of teasers.

Earlier this month, Lopez hinted that she had something in the works related to her beauty brand when she posted a makeup-free video and challenged fans to guess what she was working on. “Woke up this morning feeling extra grateful and excited! 🤍 Want to know why? Comment below if you wanna know what I’m working on,” she wrote.

However, we might just have one hint! According to People a trademark filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office last December, JLo Beauty aims to provide cosmetics and skincare products.

J.Lo Posted BTS Super Bowl Footage And Shared Her Booty Shaking “Tutorial” With Shakira

J.Lo Posted BTS Super Bowl Footage And Shared Her Booty Shaking “Tutorial” With Shakira

Jennifer Lopez and Shakira owned the Super Bowl halftime show this year. The Puerto Rican and Colombian singers cranked up the sexy and talent with a halftime show we are still talking about.

J.Lo shared some behind-the-scene moments from her Super Bowl halftime show.

J.Lo and Shakira’s Super Bowl halftime show brought in 103 million viewers. This was a 4 percent increase from the previous year, which was Maroon 5. Three million more people enjoyed the show and it caused more than a thousand people to call and complain because many complained that it was too sexual.

But everyone is obsessing over the last video in the post.

In the final video, J.Lo and Shakira are going over the choreography. The move they are trying to nail is the booty shake and Shakira asks J.Lo how she does it. Fortunately, you can hear what they say and J.Lo responds.

“I do it with my knees,” J.Lo told Shakira before laughing. “When you shake your knees, your butt goes. My mother taught me that when I was four.”

Her former costar from “Hustlers” had to comment and quote J.Lo.

We hope that this is something that J.Lo taught the women he worked with on the movie. It is pretty solid advice for good booty shaking. Let’s face it, we all know that J.Lo’s booty-shaking is a move she does time and time again. She does it because she is good at it and people like to see it. Now we know how she does it.

People are living for this content.

Lol. Honestly, this isn’t surprising. Anything we ever wanted to know, we asked our parents. Our parents are usually just really fun and there is the openness with our parents when it comes to things in the home. It is a fun, safe bubble where we all let ourselves be ourselves.

There was some confusion because Shakira is known for her dancing.

In J.Lo’s defense, booty-shaking is completely different than shaking your hips. It requires a different kind of movement in your body. Hips and booty move differently and J.Lo might also need advice from Shakira on how to shake her hips.

The post is bringing memories back for everyone about the halftime show that shook the NFL world.

More than 1,000 people complained to the FCC claiming that the show was overly sexual. The claims sparked fierce debate on social media about the merits of the claims and the visuals of the performance. The debate was split with people arguing that those complaining where policing brown bodies.

However, the most obvious thing people are doing is learning a new move for the end of quarantine.

The end of the quarantine is everything that they have all wanted to celebrate for a long time. Thankfully, J.Lo gave us a chance to learn something new while still social distancing and self-isolating.
