J.Lo And A-Rod’s Amazing Relationship Will Leave You With Some Serious Relationship Envy

@arod / Twitter

Pretty much every relationship Jennifer Lopez finds herself in marks an era of chisme. All our mami’s and their comadres have maintained that nobody will ever measure up to Marc Anthony for our Boricua Queen. Until now.

Former baseball star Alex Rodriguez knows that he won the lottery with our favorite Renaissance Woman. He probably has a mami of his own making sure he knows how lucky he is, and he’s unafraid to post his infatuations all over Instagram. Prepare to feel single AF.

The two just celebrated their two year anniversary by posting love notes on Instagram.

A-Rod’s long post commemorating their love starts like this, “Macha 13, I can’t believe it’s been two years. Only 730 days, which have flown by, but it feels like we have been together forever. We are meant to be, and how much you mean to me cannot be put into words.”

“There is no one else I would rather have by my side.” -A-Rod

A-Rod goes on, “From baseball games, to traveling across the world to shows in Vegas. We have done it all together and every moment with you is cherished. Where this road will take us next is unknown but there is no one else I would rather have by my side. The journey is just beginning and I am excited for what’s ahead..Macha, your hard work is unmatched. Your relentless drive and determination push me to be a better man each and every day..Like you there is none other. Words will never do justice to what the last two years have meant to me. Thank you for always being you, for your unwavering support and unconditional love.❤️.Te amo mucho, Lola.”

J.Lo (thee J.Lo) says she feels blessed to have him by her side.

You make my world a more beautiful safe and stable place… in the midst of our ever-changing, ever-moving life… you make me feel like a teenager starting out all over again… Every time I think I have you pegged, you surprise me in the most wonderful ways reminding me how blessed I am to have found you now in this moment at this time… our time… Te Amo Macho… ”

The two lovers act like kids together.

I mean, aren’t all dreams made up of lazy Sundays with the love of your life at the farmer’s market?

@arod / Instagram

Having a basket full of organic local fruit and no one to share it with is the ultimate joy-kill. Plus, they always look like they’re in their own Rom-Com film together.

Remember this time they were glowing in matching flannel pajamas?

@jlo / Instagram

Let it be known that there isn’t a world in which we’ll ever see J.Lo take off those hoops. We’re okay with it.

They not only have each other but a whole big happy family together. 😭

@arod / Instagram

Is the loneliness setting in yet? I’m shattered. Jennifer and Alex both had children in previous marriages and they all seem to get along super well.

Their life is so full of joy that they can give up sugar & carbs and still be happy.

@arod / Instagram

Caption: “No carbs + no sugar = lots of meat. 🥩 Join me and Jennifer for our 10 day challenge.”

Relationship goals aren’t enough. They’re also fitness goals.

@arod / Instagram

And they do it together. Caption: “💥Dream team👍🏻..When your workout partner kicks your a$$ 🤦🏽‍♂️.”

They even have a photo of when they first met.

Granted, it was 14 years ago, and they both were married to their exes. Of course, J.Lo’s amor is an all time Yankees legend.

That time A-Rod politely put an end to P.Diddy’s thirst.

@jlo / Instagram

At the time, the couple existed only in chismosa land, but this comment put things to rest. A-Rod is the only lucky one here.

They casually grace magazine covers together.

In the issue, Lopez reveals more details about their first date. “He was sitting there in his white shirt, very confident and manly, but then he was just so talkative! I think he thought I was going to be this loud person, but I’m not. I just listen. So he’s talking, talking about his plans, about how he had just retired from baseball, about how he saw himself getting married again, all these things you wouldn’t normally talk about on a first date. I don’t know if he thought it was a date. … He was nervous, and it was really cute.”

A-Rod is not only the best Instagram boyfriend, but he thirsts for it.

The VMA’s captured this pivotal moment of A-Rod recording his girlfriend twerking on national television and he lived for it. The best part of this is the very ‘dad’ nature of A-Rod that compels him to record the performance on his phone, knowing it was being professionally recorded.

He just can’t trust MTV to honor J.Lo the way he would.

They always find time to be together as a family.

@arod / Instagram

In June 2017, A-Rod told Extra, “If you want to be together, you are together. Our kids get along really well, we’re both from New York, we’re both Latin, we’re both in our 40s. We’re really enjoying life.” The two both have two daughters from previous marriages.

J.Lo’s kids now have two dads to show up for their dance recitals.

@arod / Instagram

The potential for conflict is super high, but these two are so mature that they can work anything out.

They fundraised for Puerto Rico together.

After both the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico were devastated by Hurricane Maria, the two orchestrated the Somos Live concert. “Right when the hurricane hit Puerto Rico, Marc and I got on the phone and started talking about what we could do,” Lopez told People. “Alex was right next to me and he started spitballing things we could do… We are all family. We are doing this because it’s the right thing to do. Our community needs us right now and we are very aware that we are leaders in our community.”

And they even meet with Puerto Rico’s governor together.

Look at that loving support. The two traveled to Loiza, Puerto Rico to discuss the impact of the hurricane. Lopez personally donated $1 million to the relief effort.

J.Lo has told the world that she feels like she found “The One.”

@arod / Instagram

“I’m in a good relationship,” she told Hola! USA. “I feel like I can say that for the first time — I don’t know — maybe ever. And not that I didn’t have great relationships, full of love and adventure, but this is the first relationship I’ve been [in] where I feel like we really make each other better. We complement each other, and that’s really pure, true love. Just wanting to support the other person and make them happy.”

Apparently, A-Rod’s daughters are obsessed with J.Lo.

@arod / Instagram

Rodriguez gushed to Jimmy Kimmel Live! that his own daughters are “hanging out with Jennifer backstage. They’re dancing. They’re singing with her. … They call three, four, five times … they’re looking around … ‘Where’s Jennifer?’”

While accepting the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, Lopez gave a mushy shoutout to Alex.

@arod / Instagram

“Alex, you’re like my twin soul. We’re like mirror images of each other. My life is sweeter and better with you in it because you make me realize that every day, the sky is not the limit.”

Here's How The Internet Reacted When Demi Lovato Tweeted About The 21 Savage Controversy

Here’s How The Internet Reacted When Demi Lovato Tweeted About The 21 Savage Controversy

ddlovato / Instagram

We all know Demi Lovato is just six months sober from a major overdose in July 2018. She’s spent 90 days in rehab, out of the public eye, and has been slowing returning to social media. First, it started out with Instagram likes and gradually progressed to the singer calling out body-shaming gaming app advertisements on the platform.

Now, the international icon has deleted her Twitter platform after users assumed the worst in her and started attacking her mental health struggles. Lovato took to her Instagram stories to explain exactly what went down.

It all started when rapper 21 Savage was arrested by ICE for deportation.

The whole internet was shook to learn that 21 Savage was even British to begin with. The rapper entered the US legally in 2005 but has allegedly failed to renew his visa to legally stay in the country.

“So far 21 savage memes have been my favorite part of the Super Bowl.”

Lovato tweeted and then quickly deleted the tweet after people starting attacking her past drug use. Before deleting her account, she parted with these words, “If you’re gonna come at me for making a joke, try coming at me for something original and not involving drugs.”

Lovato was quick to get the story straight, however.

Get it? Because who knew that 21 Savage was British and do they even have pens over there yet? Let the record show that the whole internet was already laughing at this.

And quick to call out the truly barbaric attacks she was receiving.

“Go shoot some more heroine Demi”? Really? It is never okay to bully someone for mental health problems.

Lovato is known for being vulnerable and honest about her battles with addiction.

CREDIT: @ddlovato / Instagram

Her fanbase is so big and devoted because of that vulnerability. Lovato has always taken us all along for the ride.

That vulnerability made her a quick target.

It’s hard enough to overcome an addiction in private. We can’t imagine how difficult it must be as a public figure.

People shouldn’t be directing their anger with ICE at Demi Lovato.

CREDIT: @ddlovato / Instagram

Understandably, the immigrant community and its allies have well-deserved anger and resentment towards the free range that ICE as a federal agency receives. They’re the ones separating children from their families without any intent or means to reunite them.

Because, really, there’s no excuse for this kind of dangerous behavior.

CREDIT: @ddlovato / Instagram

And yet, all that ugly that ICE brings to the table doesn’t permit ugly to be dished out at other vulnerable populations. Haven’t we been educated enough to arrive at the scientific consensus that addiction and alcoholism is a disease? Nobody is cracking lupus jokes at Selena Gomez.

Could Lovato have provided some compassionate context?

CREDIT: @ddlovato / Instagram

Completely out of the context of her personality, you could question what she was referring to. But we do know the context, and Lovato isn’t AOC. She’s perusing the Twitterverse like everyone else.

Even Wale came out to throw shade at Lovato.

At first, he just replied to her saying, “Why is somebody freedom funny…I don’t get the joke.” Lovato’s now deleted response was, “Wale just salty I never replied to his desperate tweets years ago.”

Wale responded, “Still ain’t gon disrespect you…still praying for you Demi. Glad u seen my old tweets. Hopefully you seen the ones providing comfort and prayer when you were down. I don’t kick people when they down. Go queen.”

Lovato spells it out crystal clear:

Wale kept going, but, understandably, Lovato wants to keep the conversation more private. Being a celebrity sounds terrible.

Some celebrities have come out to support Demi.

In an Instagram live stream, Tory Lanez pulled for Demi. “I’m not feeling this whole coming for Demi Lovato thing B, I’m not feeling it. I’m not feeling it. Some n***as really don’t watch the Super Bowl my n***a? And I’m not gonna lie that shit is wild entertaining n***a. I’m not for this whole coming for Demi Lovato thing.”

And now, there are even memes about the meme scandal. #TheInternet

It’s crazy how that went from 0 to 100 real quick. Demi laughed alongside The Internet at a truly non-offensive meme and now she’s canceled Twitter.

Some of the memes are painfully accurate of how it went down.

CREDIT: @TLN_John97 / Twitter

I’m cringing. The internet calls out Demi for laughing at one element of an otherwise traumatic event, and the internet responds by wielding her own trauma as the butt of a joke. Cool.

Even if your racist tio tweeted that meme, you’d probably let it slide.

CREDIT: @ivse / Twitter

You have to pick your battles, right? And making fun of British quills ain’t mierda compared to everything else out there. Not even relatively speaking, is the meme offensive.

Our societal double standards around drug addiction need to change.

CREDIT: @PiecesDubz / Twitter

I’d also like to point out how sexism allows people to subconsciously respect one man’s addiction and use a woman’s addiction as a ‘flaw.’ We can do better.

Meanwhile, the internet has largely left this one alone.

Tomi Lahren is still on Twitter?! Excuse me?! Where the trolls at?

Except for Cardi B. She’s revving up for a dog walk.

If you missed the epic interchange between Cardi B and conservative pundit Tomi Lahren, let’s just say that Lahren tried it with Cardi B but Cardi B shut her down hard.

Now we’ve lost our Twitter privileges with Demi.

CREDIT: @ddlovato / Instagram

We don’t know how long she’ll be breaking from Twitter, but we hope it’s not long. Since she’s been back on social media, she’s rallied her fan base to petition Instagram to remove advertisements for a hugely problematic body shaming game.

It’s agreed that Lovato, nor anyone else, deserves to be bullied.

CREDIT: @ddlovato / Instagram

The internet is a place where bullying can run rampant. It those times, if you are exepriencing or witnessing bullying that affects you, it is important to know that you can walk away. Silence the notifications, put the phone down, and take time for yourself.
