Celebrities Are Reacting To J.Lo’s Daughter, Emme, Singing On Stage At The Forum This Weekend

Jennifer Lopez kicked off her “It’s My Party” concert tour in Inglewood over the weekend which has had fans excited for months. The tour will include 36 shows which will take place across Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America. For her first leg of the tour, the singer started in Inglewood and brought a bright little surprise on stage with her for a performance as well.

Lopez’s daughter, 11-year-old Emme Maribel Muñiz joined her mother on stage to perform a duet of “Limitless” which was featured in Lopez’s recent film Second Act. Coincidentally, the song’s title proved that J.Los daughter is a girl with no limits herself.

Together the mother-daughter-duo belted out the lyrics to the single and hit some pretty impressive notes.

Both wore red gowns and their long flowing hair as they made a night of the “It’s My Party Tour.” During her daughter’s take on the duet, Lopez could be seen turning and putting her hand to her chest and then later moving down to her knees to show just how in awe of her daughter she was.

Concert-goers from that night weren’t the only ones to be surprised by the performance.

Stars like Reese Witherspoon, Laverne Cox, and Zoe Saldana all shared their love for Emme’s performance in the comments section of J.Lo’s post.

“We all cried!!” Saldana wrote in response to the performance. Meanwhile Witherspoon enthused “What a voice!”

We have seen lots of Emme, who is now 11-years-old, on her mom’s Instagram.

She looks so much like J.Lo too! She embodies her mom’s fierceness and charm, but we had no idea she was also so talented.

J.Lo often refers to her kids as her little coconuts, but Emme is much more than that.

We have also heard Emme sing a little bit here and there on her mom’s Instagram.

We could never tell, however, how much range she had until now.

Recently, J.Lo posted a video of her busy and glamorous life, per usual, but there was one moment that really stood out.

The video was a compilation that she posted over the weekend that included her rehearsal, wrapping up her new movie “Hustlers” that also stars Cardi B. Then we see Emme walk into the rehearsal room with her mom.

In the video, J.Lo instructed her daughter to sing Alicia Key’s “If I Ain’t Got You” in the original key.

The musical director tells Emme to give her performance some sass and to start pointing as if she means her words. Then Emme takes it home in the most powerful way.

Emme’s voice is truly outstanding. Check it out in the 4-minute mark.

We are so impressed by her natural talent and the fact that she is clearly taking singing lessons as well.

If she sounds this good now we can only imagine she’s going to improve.

If you’d like to see more of Emme and her twin brother Max, check out this cute and hilarious Q&A with their mom.

Hey J.Lo, can you adopt us, please?!

Jennifer Lopez And Matthew McConaughey Honor The 20th Anniversary Of ‘The Wedding Planner’

Sony Pictures Releasing

2001. A year of quite a lot of big events and don’t fans of The Wedding Planner know it!

Twenty years ago the beloved romantic comedy starring Jennifer Lopez as a cynical but ambitious wedding planner and Matthew McConaughey the engaged doctor with who she falls in love with.

Twenty years later and of course we needed a reunion to celebrate.

Fortunately, the leading stars reunited for a virtual screening of the 20th anniversary of the hit film. 

During an Instagram Live event, the two actors reunited to wax nostalgia about their iconic romantic comedy from their respective homes. During the sweet gathering, Lopez and McConaughey talked about all things related to that time including their kissing scenes. Recalling one kissing moment in particular, Lopez said to McConaughey “You said, ‘Miss Lopez, I’m going to kiss you now.’ And I said, ‘OK, let’s do it. Let’s hit it.'”

Speaking about the movie’s impact on their career they both admitted that they’ve been lucky.

“When you do these movies… we’ve been lucky enough to continue doing what we love,” Lopez explained. “There are certain moments that always stick out in your head.”

“I so enjoyed working with you,” Lopez added. “We had such a nice rapport and chemistry. We were somewhat at the beginning of our careers at that time. It was exciting to be working on any movie. I still feel that way. It was a magical time. I’m such a romantic too that working on those types of movies have a real feel for me.”

Sweetly, McConaughey praised Lopez for her talent and ambition.

“You prepare so well for everything you do. I love your intentionality, I love how deliberate you are. You would have it down, you love the choreography. I love your deliberation, and the preparation you have,” he added before lamenting the fall of romcoms. “In a way, [The Wedding Planner] was the last of the rom-coms,” McConaughey said. “The rom-com doesn’t get made anymore.”

Lopez was quick to point out that she’s worked hard to ensure that rom-coms don’t die altogether. “I wanna know there’s a happily ever after, I wanna know that. Even though we know we’ve lived through a tough year, miracles still happen, love prevails, things can go right, for sure.”

J.Lo’s Social Media Challenge Has Backfired Spectacularly And People Are Having Too Much Fun

J.Lo’s Social Media Challenge Has Backfired Spectacularly And People Are Having Too Much Fun

@jlo / Twitter

Social media challenges are everywhere and some of them are super fun. However, J.Lo’s attempt to create a social media challenge for the anniversary of her song “Love Don’t Cost A Thing.” The challenge has drawn more trolling responses than genuine and here’s why.

J.Lo was probably expecting a different reaction to #LoveDontCostAThingChallenge.

J.Lo’s song “Love Don’t Cost A Thing” was released 20 years ago and it was a very important moment in Latino pop culture. We all know the song by heart and if you say you don’t then you aren’t being honest. Yet, J.Lo’s way of trying to celebrate the song’s release is, well, bizarre. We should keep in mind that we are dealing with an ongoing pandemic and it is winter, but J.Lo wants you to find a beach, walk around, and through your clothes and jewelry everywhere?

In fact, one of the responses questioning the challenge has more likes than the original post.

J.Lo literally just walked on the beach and threw her jewelry and clothing around. Like, what is happening here? There are so many questions right now and the text of the original tweet offers no real guidance. How is this a fun challenge?

@_nellerita makes a good point. We don’t have valuables that we can just throw around for a social media challenge. Most challenges involve dances, which gives a set parameter of what to do. This is just too open ended and, quite frankly, a wild concept.

Legit, people have a lot of questions about what is happening with the challenge and the tossing of jewelry.

A lot of people don’t have jewelry just laying around, tbh. We might have an Apple watch that is the only real thing we wear but why would we throw it? It is clear that J.Lo was hoping to see people recreate the iconic scene of the music video when she stripped down to go into the water. While the moment is iconic, it is something that we are not super eager to recreate as we stay isolated during this Covid winter.

Overwhelmingly, this has been the reaction to the #LoveDontCostAThingChallenge.

Most of Twitter is just sitting there trying to figure out what exactly is going on with J.Lo and her challenge. We appreciate someone getting people involved and mobilized. We also want to see our people succeed. However, some things need to be thought out a little bit more than this social media challenge.
