The Puerto Rican queen of film, TV, music, and making dudes jealous, Jennifer Lopez, was on “Ellen” a few years ago. Besides dancing and dishing on A.Rod, J.Lo’s twins came out and stole the show. Specifically, her son Max stole the spotlight, while ironically trying to hide from it. The two kids were uncharacteristically shy for what you’d imagine the children of superstars to be like. Lopez’s son, Max, was all of us trying to go home while waiting for mami to finish talking with la vecina.
In 2017, J.Lo was on “Ellen” with her kids Emmie and Max. Right away, her son, Max, tried to disappear.
Jennifer Lopez was stopped on the red carpet to get her response to Internet sensation Baby Yoda, and, after being initially caught off guard, she told Variety that she, in fact, likes Baby Yoda. If you’re Latino and, so far, you’ve just “liked” all the Baby Yoda hype and memes, let us be the first to introduce you to the Latinized series of Baby Yoda – “Yodito.” Lil’ Yodito can be found listening to Daddy Yankee or “Despacito,” no matter how many times The Mandalorian, known by the Latino Internet as ‘Papi Mando,’ turns off the radio to their spaceship. Yodito uses VapoRub, and sips tea when their abuelita asks them about ‘el novio.’
Yodito sees us, and we hope J.Lo sees Lil’ Yodito in all their glory.
The verdict is still out on whether J.Lo actually knows what Baby Yoda is.
The Variety reporter stopped Lopez on the red carpet of the 2019 IFP Gotham Awards at Cipriani Wall Street in New York to ask her if she’s “seen Baby Yoda.” Confusion washed over her face as she asked, “Baby Yoda? No.” The reporter tells the Nuyorican “Hustlers” producer and actress that she “has to see Baby Yoda.” She turns to someone else to ask, “What’s Baby Yoda?” As the woman begins to break down Baby Yoda to J.Lo, her glowing face breaks into a smile and she laughingly says, “Oh yes I have seen it. I like Baby Yoda. Baby Yoda’s amazing.”
For those of you who don’t live on the Internet, Baby Yoda is a character in Disney +’s The Mandalorian, a series set in the Star Wars universe. What the Internet calls “Baby Yoda” is scripted as “The Child,” who is the same species as Yoda, but appears as a small toddler, who has yet to speak a single word. The Child is actually a beautifully designed puppet, and the Mandalorian takes to him or her immediately. The Mandalorian, often called “Mando” by the other characters he meets, protects The Child in a quirky, loveable relationship. Since The Child’s appearance on Disney +, a Baby Fever has taken hold of the Internet.
On the Latino Internet, it’s more like Papi Mando taking care of Yodito with all the ways our parents took care of us.
On Latino Twitter, Mando takes care of Baby Yoda with the age-old panacea of VapoRub and that magical poem that almost always ended in a tickle fight: “Sana, sana, colita de rana…” The fact that the English-speaking world is calling The Mandalorian “Mando,” has people like Aaron Duran pointing out via Twitter that “Mando = Armando and he is clearly a space tío. Yodito shall be canon. This is the way.” Other people are asking, “Is it Yodito or Yodita? I don’t want to assume the babies’ gender.” To clarify, Yodito is already 50 years old, but simply has the appearance of a baby.
All we know is that we agree with @LatinGeeks: “Baby Yodito is truly one of us.”
Tío Mando is letting Yodito learn his own lessons and letting him try Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. It’s what all our tíos told us when we wanted to try a sip of their Patron, also. “El Mando y Yodito is my favorite novela,” tweeted Latinx Geeks.
Just yesterday, Julián Castro tweeted a photo of Yodito sipping Lipton tea alongside some political tea: “If the Democratic Party wants a field that’s representative of its members and its voters, it probably shouldn’t have two states as white as Iowa and New Hampshire vote first every year,” Castro retweeted Nate Silver. In fact, Yodito is trending even higher than most 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, according to Axios.
Yup, Yodito has their own extremely miniature esclava.
“Yeah, but when is Mando piercing Yodito’s ears? It’s long overdue,” Enrique Rea asked. Another Yodito fan posited that Yodito probably smells like that Royal Violets cheap perfume our mamis subjected us to as infants. As the Internet began asking what Baby Yoda’s first word will be, Latino Internet definitively answered. Yodito’s first world will be “Papi.” *cries*
Yodito is also probably “gay as hell.”
*sips tea* I feel so seen. Thank you @LatinxGeeks for making Yodito uniquely belonging to Latinos. We think that J.Lo needs to meet Yodito to move past her mere like-dom for Baby Yoda. Yodito is the most loveable muñeco lindo on the Internet right now.
The jungle dress, famously worn by Jennifer Lopez to the Grammy awards in 2000 has just been knocked off by e-tailer, Fashion Nova—and it’s safe to say that this isn’t by far the first time the online store has been accused of copying. But on this occasion, the Italian fashion house was not having it. Here’s all the tea.
The design famously worn by J.Lo at the Grammy Awards in 2000, was the reason why Google invented an image search option.
The dress has in fact become a sort of evergreen search for Google. Almost twenty years later, “People are still doing queries for ‘Jennifer Lopez green dress,’ ‘Jennifer Lopez jungle print dress,’ ‘Jennifer Lopez Grammys dress,’ [that] sort of thing,” said Cathy Edwards, director of engineering and product for Google Images.
Versace is hitting Fashion Nova with a lawsuit.
The Italian luxury label is suing online retailer Fashion Nova for copying its iconic green leaf-printed design. But it turns out, that the iconic “jungle dress” isn’t the only design that got Fashion Nova in trouble.
More of Versace’s iconic prints have been knocked off by Fashion Nova.
Alongside the Jungle Print, Versace has also taken legal action against Fashion Nova’s use of its black and gold Barocco design and its Pop Hearts design. Despite all three prints being copyrighted, the fast-fashion label has manufactured and sold remarkably similar versions on its own products.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the lawsuit states that: “Fashion Nova’s ability to churn out new clothing so quickly is due in large part to its willingness to copy the copyrighted designs, trademarks and trade dress elements of well-known designers such as Versace, and trade on their creative efforts in order to bolster Fashion Nova’s bottom line.”
“Fashion Nova’s Infringing Apparel is plainly a deliberate effort to exploit the popularity and renown of Versace’s signature designs, and to trade on Versace’s valuable goodwill and business reputation.”
“Versace seeks to bring an end to Fashion Nova’s latest brazen attempt at copying the work of yet another famous and world-renowned designer.”
Just this year, the pop star from the Bronx, hit the runway for Versace at Milan Fashion-week wearing the infamous leaf-print dress nearly 20 years later —and still slayed everyone in attendance with her toned body and godlike runway walk.
But this isn’t the first time Fashion Nova’s been called out for plagiarism.
Fashion Nova has previously been called out for copying designers; Kim Kardashian West criticized the brand for replicating her vintage Thierry Mugler gown, she even took to twitter to share her stance.
Instagram’s annointed fashion police, Diet Prada, has called out Fashion Nova many times —but on this particular scandal, they put Kim K on blast too.
DP argue that Kardashian has some sort of dealings with bargain fashion emporium Fashion Nova, after a rip-off of her archive Mugler gown appeared on the site. While this is nothing new for the “ultra-fast fashion” retailer, the images on the site are allegedly time stamped hours before she first wore the Mugler out in public —they even have a highlight on their Instagram page detailing the whole thing.
