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…

20 Pictures From Kat Von D’s Wedding You Probably Didn’t See

Kat Von D and Rafael Reyes celebrated their first wedding anniversary this February and who could forget the divinely gothic wedding ceremony? We’re pretty sure its theme beat the one for the 2018 Met Gala. The makeup maestra-slash-tattoo ace and the Prayers frontman hosted an elaborately dark wedding ceremony, and even though we didn’t get an invite (it’s still in the mail, I swear), thanks to Instagram (and the close friends of the couple), we were able to get a feel for most of what the wedding day entailed!

From Kat Von D’s blood red gown to a red cake shaped like a castle, here are 20 photos from the spectacularly black-attire only bash you probably haven’t seen before.

1. The wedding location.

The couple hosted their wedding at one of the world’s infamous hotels: The Beverly Hills Hotel. The upscale venue has seen many a celebrity weddings and had guests like Grace Kelly, Katharine Hepburn and Frank Sinatra.

2. Surprisingly, Kat did have a partly white wedding.

Guests entered the ceremony through an “immaculate white” room and signed a guest book with feather ink quills and a scroll.

3. The dress code was all black attire.

Guests of the bride and groom were asked to wear all black clothing. During their wait for the ceremony, they drank LITERAL smoking drinks and took pictures with elaborate white cross set-ups.

4. The actual ceremony and reception took place inside a blood-red setting that looks like it was straight out of a Guillermo del Toro movie.

The area was ornately decked out in floor-to-ceiling candle and flower decorations. Super “Pan’s Labrynth” ish, amiright?

5. See what I mean by decadent AF?

The ceremony was held in a room with a floral ceiling dome as its centerpiece.

6. And the drippy red waxy candles?

Intricately designed red candles lined the floor for an extreme look that was two parts infernal and glam.

She had spandex-wearing contortionists do it for her.

10. Of course, the untraditional goth queen made a statement with her walk to the aisle…

Kat walked solo down the aisle and gave her self away, which is a SUPER feminist statement if I can say so myself.

11. The couple said their vows on a circular platform in the middle of the room.

Instead of having everyone face a stage at the front, Kat and Rafael married in the center of a room, with guests sitting around them in a circle.

12. Kat met her Rafael, who was also wearing a veil, on the platform.

The couple went all in their effort to show that they are equal partners and also in love with goth.
