Only A-Rod Could Convince J.Lo The Walking Embodiment Of PR To Perform In DR

Jennifer Lopez, the Queen of the Bronx, has the world going crazy. Recently, Drake threw some broken hearted J.Lo references on several tracks in his new album, she’s working on another season of Shades of Blue, and her ex-husband Marc Anthony is executive producing her new Spanish language album set to drop in 2017. And, of course, who can forget her bae-cation in the Bahamas with notorious bad-boy and retired (read: fired) Yankee, A-Rod. Is her new trip to DR because she’s in love with the baseballer?

With all the headlines J.Lo manages to find herself in, she’s still staying busy with work. Among other projects, she’s promoting and starring in “Shades of Blue” on NBC.

A perfect storm AND we are just getting started!! #ShadesOfBlue every Sunday at 10pm on @nbc!

In the middle of being the center of attention did we all forget she’s got a show currently on TV?

She’s definitely working, but ever since the new King and Queen of the Bronx have been spotted together, Puerto Ricans and Dominicans have been at war.

With the World Baseball Classic coinciding with J.Lo posting pics of her and A-Rod on Instagram, Dominicans and Puerto Ricans had a perfect reason to meme each other to death.

To be honest, most of us use these curse words and drink those beers interchangeably.

But, this week, J.Lo shared something that was a little fishy. She announced her first show in the Dominican Republic ever. Like EVER.

She’s performed all over the world and has never thought to perform there.  I wonder what’s diff— oh, I know. A-Rod. ?

Looks like someone is sprung and it’s seeping into her work.

It seems J.Lo is tired of the beef and wants to bring peace to El Caribe out of her newfound love for A-Rod.

Or, is the visit just a coincidence and she does whatever she wants, because it’s her world and we’re all just living in it?

Do you think J.Lo is going to the DR because of A-Rod? Share with someone who thinks so with the links below!

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

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

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.
