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.”

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.

A-Rod And J.Lo Are Trying To Raise Enough Money To Buy The New York Mets

Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez are always in the headlines. The power couple was vocal and present when it came to helping Puerto Rico after the devastating hurricanes in 2017. Then their engagement set the Internet on fire. Now, with a wedding postponed, the couple found another way to grab headlines thanks to the New York Mets.

Alex Rodriguez and J.Lo are allegedly considering buying the New York Mets.

First reported by Variety, several reports allege that J.Lo and A-Rod have retained JP Morgan Chase to help raise the funds needed to make the purchase of the New York Mets. The baseball team was founded after both the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Giants left leaving behind no baseball for city residents.

A-Rod and J.Lo aren’t the first people interested in the baseball team.

According to Variety, the Wilpon family, the current owners, were trying to sell 80 percent of the team to hedge fund manager Steve Cohen. The team was valued at $2.6 billion ahead of that deal. The deal with Cohen fell through which put the New York Mets back up for sale.

People are comparing this move to buy the New York Mets to mirroring his former teammate Derek Jeter.

Jeter is a part-owner of the Miami Marlins owning 4 percent of the Florida team. For his 4 percent, Jeter reportedly paid $25 million in a deal valued at $1.2 billion. Combined, J.Lo and A-Rod have a net value of $700 million meaning they would need to partner with some other deep-pocket investors. JP Morgan Chase would have to help J.Lo and A-Rod find people to make up the rest of the $2.4 billion deal.

A-Rod, a former professional baseball player is familiar with the Mets.

A-Rod was considering signing with the Mets when he was a free agent. Instead, A-Rod signed with the Texas Rangers before being traded to the New York Yankees. While at the Yankees with Jeter, A-Rod helped the team win a World Series.

We will all just have to wait and see if the power couple ends up being part-owners of the Mets.

One thing is for sure, A-Rod has some expertise in what makes a baseball franchise great. It also shouldn’t be too surprising that a former baseball player of A-Rod’s caliber is purchasing a Major League Baseball team. It just seems like a natural progression of his involvement with the sport.

What do you think about the potential selling of the New York Mets?
