Jennifer Lopez Killed It Last Night on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ As Teenage Latina Gabby Hernandez
Gabby Hernández, or Jennifer Lopez as we all know her, stopped by “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” to spill the beans with her BFF Sara for the “Ew!” couch segment. Jennifer Lopez proved that she totally understands us on a very deep level.
The first sign she is one of us were her pink, light-up sneaks. Every Latina owned a pair back in the day.
Admit it, when you saw the shoes it immediately took you back to your middle school days.
That teen angst mixed with those stellar pigtails was like looking in a mirror.
If you look hard enough. you’ll probably find a photo of yourself rocking all those damn moños.
Not even Gabby is safe from parents following her social media. Gah!
And nothing is worse than your dad picking a “cool” username.
And, like us, she was always either too shy or too consumed with Catholic guilt to really bust a move.
…Because dancing is a sin.
But when our jam came on, Jenny From The Block was unleashed.
We obvi have a natural understanding of ritmo and hip shaking that nadie could understand.
And booty bumping was sometimes too much for our friends too handle.
Poor Sara never had a chance. ?
Fast food was such a rare treat, that we would hoard that sh*t…at our friend’s house, of course.
Because “Hay comida a la casa, comemos allá,” was mami’s answer EVERY TIME we asked for fast food… But our friend’s parents never knew that.
Let JLo, as Gabby, take you back to your childhood in this hilarious clip:
