J.Lo Relives Her Fly Girl Days Thanks To Bruno And Cardi’s ‘Finesse’ Video

The Internet lost it after Bruno Mars and Cardi B released the remix to his throwback jam “Finesse,” accompanied by the amazing video that’s an homage to the ’90s sketch comedy show “In Living Color.”

The video was released just after midnight on Thursday and had everyone going nuts on social media. While the song’s ’90s R&B vibe has everyone busting out the Roger Rabbit, the video really has them going off.

People clearly love and miss the comedy show so this video brought back all those nostalgic memories. Those who are too young to remember “In Living Color” perhaps have no idea that the cast featured one talented dancer back when she was starting out in the business.

Jennifer Lopez got her big break as a “Fly Girl” dancer on the show, performing dance routines between sketches. So she obviously had something to say about Bruno and Cardi’s tribute.

Yes, that is miss J.Lo herself cutting the floor with her moves! She was one of the few Latinas viewers saw regularly on a popular TV show.

J.Lo appeared on the show on Seasons 3 and 4, between 1991-1993.

Lopez credits “In Living Color” host and creator Keenan Ivory Wayans for discovering her and placing her on primetime TV.

He just saw something in me,” Lopez once said, according to Us Weekly. “He would always tell me, ‘You’re going to be a big star.'”

“I’d been there hours and seen every dancer in New York, and then this young girl steps up and a spotlight landed on her and she captivated everyone in the room,” Keenan once recalled in a 2019 episode of VH1’s “Behind the Music.”

However, another famous Latina credits herself for discovering J.Lo and placing her as a dancer on “In Living Color.”

Rosie Perez was the lead choreographer of the Fly Girls and says she discovered J.Lo.

In 2014, Rosie released her memoir “Handbook for an Unpredictable Life,” and shared a juicy tidbit in which Lopez made it very clear that she should be front and center.

According to the book, Jennifer once went off on Rosie, screaming, “You pick on me, me and only me, every f**king day! Every f**king day! I work my ass off, deliver and you keep pushing me aside, treating me like s**t! I know I’m good! I’m better than any of these girls, and you know it.” Apparently there’s still some beef between the two. :sips tea:

Some fans wondered why Rosie wasn’t in the “Finesse” music video.

That would have been amazing!

Lopez wasn’t the only one that responded to the “Finesse” remix release.

Jossie Harris, who was also a Fly Girl, posted this image on Instagram, saying, “And love tribute to my girls #FlyGirls.”

“In Living Color” actor and comedian Shawn Wayans also tweeted that he loved the music video.

Bruno Mars responded to him by saying: “In living color was it growing up. Pop culture, Comedy, Fashion, Dance & all y’all superstars. There has never been another show like it.”

Other members of the Wayans family that appeared on the show also responded.

All this love should indicate that people need an “In Living Color” reunion ASAP!

For those of you craving more Fly Girls, I leave you with this…

Eric Trump Put On A Sombrero And Had A Mexican-Themed Birthday Party, And The Internet Is Not Having It

The youngest son of Donald Trump and Ivana celebrated his 34th birthday over the weekend surrounded by family and friends at a Mexican restaurant called Guadalajara in Briarcliff Manor, New York.

Eric and friends got into the Mexican-themed birthday by wearing sombreros.

The event was captured on video by Lynne Patton, a former party planner appointed by president Trump to be the head of the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s New York and New Jersey office, according to The New York Post.

Lynne wrote on social media:

#HappyBirthday to one of the greatest people I know. We love you, Eric! Amazing night with even more amazing friends. I think Lara summed it up best when she said, ​’​I love everyone at this table so much!​ And we love the ones who were missing tonight too! You know who you are! Xoxo. #FudgieTheWhale #BestBossEver #HBDEric.”

Eric’s birthday cake was Carvel’s signature Fudgie the Whale cake.

Apparently they couldn’t find an offensive sombrero for Fudgie to wear.

Reports say the Trump family indulged in nachos, guacamole, and chicken fajitas along with sangrias and margaritas.

The New York Daily News reports that, according to staff member at the restaurant, Eric frequently goes to eat at Guadalajara, and that the group had a “good time.”

The worker told the Daily News that none of the staff felt awkward serving the Trump family because “we have to take care of him as a regular customer.”

By the looks of the video, they did have a good time.
