The Luscious Latina with Lots of Luck and the Lovely Looks of a Lithe Lady

Born in the Morn

July 24th, 1969.

Area of Arrival 

The Bronx, New York (she is a tough and hip street-smart Chica with an attitude to match).

Vocations without Vacations 

Artistic Actress, Wise Writer, Faultless Fashion Fuehrer, Devastating Dancer (she does the salsa so sexily that you need a lot of control just to take a peek at her going through the moves), Production Prefect and Songstress that causes Distress!

A Few Odd Facts at a Glance…

Her parents didn’t want her to enter the entertainment industry. But finally they had to give in to the willfulness of warm-blooded youth. She acted in My Little Girl and the remaining is a series of footnotes to that. But they are giant steps that have taken Lopez to the heights of fame.

Among her filmic achievements are the movies: Selena (a biopic on the famous singer), Out of Sight and Shall We Dance? But later on she was to change her line of work from movie-making to song-styling. The Wedding Planner, Gigli and Maid in Manhattan are other films that she appeared in mainly. But her songs especially such numbers as Waiting for Tonight, Come Over and If You Had My Love became instant hits.

She is worth at least $250 million. In the capacity of a Latina and Hispanic personality, she is the most highly recognizable individual in the USA. Pitbull has sung in close collaboration with her. And she also sang the official song at the grand occasion which was the FIFA World Cup 2014. This woman rocks and knows how to attract attention with a mere toss of her beautiful hair.

Jenny from the Block has moved way beyond her roots. She has virtually designed an entire empire that includes perfumes, clothes lines and entertainment entities along with philanthropic organizations. She is proof of the dictum that nothing succeeds like success. Her meteoric rise to fame and the vast amounts of money she has amassed in the process come from a shrewd character and a gorgeous body that people die to get a single look at.

Jennifer Lopez was a gangster’s moll for a time being too. She paired up with Sean Puffy Combs, also known as Puff Daddy, and ended up being questioned by the law after a raid at his home. Jennifer has left him ever since and is now no longer in trouble with the authorities.  

She once spoke rather nastily about many actors and actresses and had the public opinion turn against her. Then Jenny had a change of heart and decided to apologize and the whole matter was forgotten and she was forgiven for her lapse in judgment.

Life and Deeds in Chronological Order:

Born in The Bronx, Jennifer Lopez is of Puerto Rican stock. Her mother was a housewife while her father was a computer technician. She has two other sisters. Life was a humble affair with all of them living in a small apartment block that may be seen even today. Jennifer began singing tunes and dancing at the precocious age of five. Her parents instilled a solid love of education in their daughter. They encouraged her to learn new things and try new experiences. 

Lopez was to undergo a lot of training in a variety of activities later on life. She engaged in gymnastics and also did some athletics which helped built her legs and butt (and they are the sexiest and most drool-worthy parts of her body today). Jenny also was on her school’s softball team. She also began dating before her sweet sixteenth year.

The NKOTB took her on among their background singers in the early 90s. From then onwards she started seriously considering dance as a way of self expression and making dollars and cents. Later on the films she was an actress in, such as the shocking Anaconda with Jon Voigt and Ice Cube, entertained with style and panache. Her crossover from movies to music is a rare occurrence since most of the transformers flounder on the rocks very easily. The only other examples of females who made it are Martika and Vanessa Williams.

Among her nicknames, such gems as Jenny from the Block and J.Lo have kind of stuck. But there are many who disagree with the first one of these. How could this super-rich (in fact filthy rich) lady call herself Jenny from the Block. She has made it big and is currently partaking in everything from photo opportunities to shopping sprees where she spends on Jimmy Choo stilettos, Chanel perfumes and Gucci handbags. Just how and why she calls herself Jenny from the Block is beyond the ken of many skeptics.

Her film Gigli bombed at the box office. It was the only disappointment of her career and remains a blemish she has been unable to get rid of up until now. Termed the worst movie ever made, Jennifer has tried to let go of this episode in her life since it needed flushing, considering the amount of stink it has created.   

As a judge on American Idol, Jennifer showed remarkable self control and was wise beyond her years. She was not pompous nor did she pontificate like many others (Simon Cowell comes to mind). Jennifer Lopez has a sense of humor and does not take things too seriously. She takes life very lightly and does not like to lay down draconian conditions before others.  

The other influences in her life include: Tina Turner, James Brown, Michael Jackson, Madonna and Barbra Streisand. She is one of the best dancers in the global village. She has been known to strut on the dance floor for eight hours straight. Phew! Small wonder her body is so fabulously fit! There are rumors that she has insured her buttocks for more than a billion dollars. But when she was asked regarding this oddity, she denied it with vehemence. 

She has made it to the sexiest women of the world list. And the fact that she has never had a stable relationship with any one man for long reminds one of Elizabeth Taylor’s constant affairs and marriages. Whether it was Ben Affleck or Marc Anthony, sooner or later things have fallen apart.    

Movies she has left behind a Mark in:

  • My Little Girl
  • Lost in the Wild
  • My Family
  • Money Train
  • Jack
  • Blood and Wine
  • Selena
  • Anaconda
  • U-Turn
  • Out of Sight
  • Antz
  • The Cell
  • The Wedding Planner
  • Angel Eyes
  • Enough
  • Maid in Manhattan
  • Gigli
  • Jersey Girl
  • Shall We Dance?
  • Monster-in-Law
  • An Unfinished Life
  • Bordertown
  • Ice Age
  • Continental Drift
  • Parker
  • The Boy Next Door
  • Home
  • Lila & Eve

TV Shows she has played a Role in:

  • In Living Color
  • Second Chances
  • South Central
  • Hotel Malibu
  • Will & Grace
  • How I Met Your Mother

List of Exciting & Soulful Songs sung by this Siren:

  • Adrenalina
  • Alive
  • All I Have
  • Baby I Love You
  • Be Mine
  • Brave
  • Booty
  • Can’t Believe
  • Charge Me Up
  • Come Over
  • Cherry Pie
  • Dance Again
  • Emotions
  • Everybody’s Girl
  • Follow the Leader
  • Girls
  • I’m Gonna Be Alright
  • If You Had My Love
  • Jenny from the Block
  • Let’s Get Loud
  • Love Don’t Cost a Thing
  • On the Floor
  • One Love
  • Play
  • Waiting for Tonight

Quite a Few Quotes:

  • She says that she has been through highs and lows. It’s been a rollercoaster ride. But somehow she has made it through and life has been a beautiful affair. 

  • Jenny contends that you have to love yourself before someone else can love you. It’s that simple. 

  • Her critics have made her a stronger and more successful person. Jennifer feeds off the hatred and builds her life on the challenges of the critical haters. 

  • She does not believe in self doubt. You have to have blind faith in yourself. 

  • Lopez refuses to have the word “Diva” used for herself like many others including Madonna have welcomed. Just because you are famous doesn’t mean you have to be a self-important egoist too.  

  • And finally she believes that you are a mirror and the world is a mirror too. Don’t let those mirrors distort reality, says Jenny from the Block. 
 

So here is a Hispanic Heroine that is more Addictive in her Sexiness than the Deadliest Heroin! 

May she continue to make the world a more interesting place…

She’s Hard as a Rock!

Jenny from the Block!
