The Definitive Ranking Of J.Lo’s Music Videos

Year after year, Jennifer Lopez continues to show that she’s got staying power. We’re so obsessed with her (for obvious reasons; her talent, the dancing, that BOOTY!), but we’re maybe even more obsessed with her flawless music videos. We know you’ve just been dying for someone to rank them, so here you go:

11. “I’m Gonna Be Alright” Ft. Nas

I cannot even begin to explain how obsessed I was with this music video. I wanted to walk through city streets with an oily glow and have a fan constantly blow in my direction! This is J.Lo at her most J.Lo to me. She’s hood as hell, and she hits that baseball with a STICK. Work it, ma.

10. “Waiting For Tonight”

This music video is like if “The Matrix” had a baby with a tropical island. So many lasers, lots of green and lots of dark space. You’re not really sure what’s going on, but you love it and you’re kind of turned on? It’s all very confusing but also perfect.

9. “Ain’t It Funny” (Alt Version)

A confused J.Lo finds herself in a romantic telenovela that is ENTIRELY SEPIA TONED?!?!? SURE, YES, OKAY, FOREVER. While the plot of the music video has little to do with the song, it’s still great. And all of the abs!

8. “If You Had My Love”

Lots of creepy cyber-stalkery “Mr. Robot” stuff in this music video, because 1999. But like really, how does he hack into J.Lo’s website and get access to cameras that let him watch her dance? Also, can we talk about a baby Adam Rodriguez in this video? PRAISE.

7. “Ain’t It Funny” Ft. Ja Rule

Ahh yes, one of the classic Ja Rule and Jennifer Lopez collaborations. This video was all about bright colors and those bangs. And LOTS of purple eye shadow. If you remember a third voice on that track, you’re absolutely right: it also features a rapper named Cadillac Tah who no one remembers.

6. “All I Have” Ft. LL Cool J

Is it possible to die from loving a music video too much?! Jennifer Lopez is walking down the street in a pink coat with a fur collar, hoop earrings, NO pants, and pigtails. Also… LL Cool J, his abs and lips. Yes.

5. “I’m Glad”

I’m always down for a “Flashdance” tribute. This song isn’t one of J.Lo’s best, but who cares when you’re rocking that amazing curly bob and dancing your freaking heart out and this scene?! No matter what, J.Lo brings it. Always.

4. “On The Floor” Ft. Pitbull

This whole video is very “Hunger Games” status. Pretty sure the films took their art direction from Pitbull and Jennifer Lopez’s video. It’s kind of trippy, but also lots and lots of sparkles. Like a scary circus that somehow works.

3. “Ain’t Your Mama”

JenniferLopezVEVO / YouTube

J.Lo as a Stepford Wife?! IS THIS HEAVEN. The theatrics of this music video are totally brilliant. But why is J.Lo on a pay phone in the beginning of the video? Very confusing, as if J.Lo ever used a pay phone.

2. “Love Don’t Cost A Thing”

JenniferLopezVEVO / YouTube

I don’t think it gets much better than J.Lo in braids with a crop top that says “J.Lo” on it dancing with a bunch of men. She is a literal goddess. After watching this video I was ready to sell my first born to her.

1. “Jenny From The Block”

Did you really expect any other video to take the #1 spot? Those cargo pants. Those eyebrows. That cameo from Ben Affleck. May J.Lo always reign as Jenny From The Block!

Yes, Beyoncé Really Did Run Into Selena Quintanilla At A Mall Back In The Day

Part 2 of Netflix’s “Selena: The Series,” is currently streaming, which means fans of the late Tejano singer are getting a chance to learn more about her origin stories. In the second part of the series, fans can expect to see more of the icon’s tragically brief but beautifully successful life. The new episodes chronicle Selena Quintanilla’s rise as a superstar and will no doubt make fans of the singer feel a deep sense of love for her.

Particularly when it comes to one episode in particular!

Part 2’s episode 6, called “Lo Más Bello,” sees the lives of two superstars collide.

The endearing episode sees Selena, played by Christian Serratos, on a shopping trip to an outdoor mall with her mother and sister. It’s then that the young singer catches the eye of a young girl who is also with her mother and sister.

Perhaps it’s real seeing real, but in either case in this episode, the young girl stops to gaze at Selena. She’s star-struck. In the episode, the young girl’s mother asks who she’s looking at and the girl replies, “Selena, a famous singer. Be quiet!”

Knowing that her daughter is a singer herself, the mother encourages her to introduce herself. Of course, the young girl is too shy to say hello but she does wave.

When Selena walks away, the young girl’s mother reveals a fun twist when she says “Beyoncé Knowles, you better learn not to be afraid of people if you ever want to be famous too.”

Like we said…

Real recognizing real.

While it might seem like the producers took creative liberty, it turns out they actually didn’t. And it makes sense. Fans of Selena and Beyoncé know that the two singers are Texan-icons.

In a recent interview for MTV Trés, Beyoncé revealed that she actually did see Selena, in the Galleria Mall in Houston. “I didn’t say much to Selena because I wasn’t a celebrity,” Beyoncé said in an interview for MTV Trés back in the day. “I just saw her and said hello and kept it moving. Definitely growing up in Texas I heard her on the radio, and I think listening to her album, even though I didn’t know exactly what she was saying, it helped me in the studio with my pronunciation.”

Fans of the Texan starlets might also remember how Beyonce, in a 2007 interview with People en Español, spoke about her love of Selena.

At the time, Beyoncée was celebrating her re-release of six Spanish-language tracks. “I listened to Selena all the time” she recalled at the time of the interview. “She’s close to me because of where I’m from.”

Both “Selena: The Series” Parts 1 and 2 are streaming right now on Netflix! Check them out!

American Girl Is Re-Releasing Josefina Montoya and Their Other Historical Dolls For Their 35th Anniversary

American Girl Is Re-Releasing Josefina Montoya and Their Other Historical Dolls For Their 35th Anniversary

Courtesy American Girl

If you’re a ’90s girl, chances are you begged your parents for an American Girl doll at some point (especially Josefina!). After all, American Girl dolls were the epitome of sophistication–trendy, cute, and above all, expensive. Well, if you’re nostalgic for the American Girls dolls of yore, you’re in luck.

On Tuesday, American Girl announced that they’re bringing the six original historical dolls out of retirement for the company’s 35th anniversary.

If you need a refresher on the six original dolls were Kirsten, Samantha, Molly, Felicity, Addy, and, of course, Josefina. American Girl created these characters to educate their young audience on little-known American history in an accessible way.

Josefina Montoya was the sole Latina doll out of the entire historical doll collection.

American Girl described her character as a “Hispanic girl whose heart and hopes are as big as the New Mexico sky.” Like every other doll, her character was also featured in a series of books that described the early days of the American Southwest (1824-1826, to be exact).

The book series’ author, Valerie Tripp, also did extensive research on 19th century life in Santa Fe de Nuevo México. Tripp visited la Hacienda de los Martínez in Taos and interviewed elderly New Mexican women who grew up in rural New Mexico.

American Girl went to great pains to ensure that Josefina Montoya’s features, accessories, and accompanying stories were historically accurate.

Per American Girl, Josefina was “developed with the guidance of an advisory board made up of historians, educators, curators, and other professionals deeply knowledgeable about the history and cultures of the American Southwest.”

The doll company also claims that the advisory board decided “what Josefina’s features, skin tone, and hair would look like.”

The 35th Anniversary edition of Josefina Montoya looks like it might give the original version a run for its money.

The 35th edition Josefina doll will include a bevy of accessories. She’ll come with a rebozo, a “white camisa with short puffed sleeves edged with lace” and a faux jola coin in an envelope.

Based on the Twitter reaction, ’90s babies can’t wait to get their hands on these dolls again. Many Latinas loved the Josefina doll. Josefina was the first time many had ever owned or played with a doll that was made specifically in their image.

But this time, we won’t have to rely on our parents to shell out their hard-earned cash for them.
