Last night at the MTV VMAs, Jennifer Lopez received the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, a trophy presented to recognize an artist’s accomplishments in music videos. I’m surprised that it took so long for MTV to present JLo with the award, since I firmly believe that JLo’s pink velour short-short tracksuit ensemble in the video for “I’m Real” is about as iconic as Michael Jackson turning into a zombie in “Thriller.” Or maybe it is to me, considering it inspired my best friend to work an identical look nearly every day that same summer, despite the fact that she almost caught heatstroke twice from wearing so much velour.
JLo performed a medley of her hits and when she was done, she accepted her award by thanking everyone in her life, including her family and her “two little angels” Max and Emme. Then JLo thanked her boyfriend of about a year and a half, A-Rod. And much like any time JLo and A-Rod are near a photographer, she got cheesy.
Jennifer Lopez is showing some character growth, as Us Weekly is reporting that she is hesitant to get married to her man Alex Rodriguez and that is fucking refreshing considering how many idiots are going to be getting divorced soon. Not Miss JLo. No ma’am. JLo learned her lessons…for now.
At last night’s Billboard Latin Music Awards, JLo graced the stage with her Zumba class-on-steroids style of music when she performed, El Anillo (which translates to “The Ring”), the third single from her new Spanish album Por la Primera Vez . She also released the official music video today. Of course, as soon as people heard the lyrics their eyes immediately darted straight towards JLo’s current beau Alex Rodriguez because we all know JLo isn’t necessarily famous for subtlety.
The 2018 TIME 100 Gala was held last night in New York City to celebrate Time magazine’s annual list of the 100 most influential people. And whether the people were influential or not, the red carpet fashion pulled from a variety of sources. Like Leslie Jones in Christian Siriano, who is giving you Grace Jones after stopping at Studio 54 while thinking,”I wonder what the rent is on this place? Do they pay monthly or yearly? You know what, hand me my coke spoon and purse, I’m leaving to pursue a career in commercial real estate.”
According to People, there’s a very good chance that A-Rod will present Jennifer Lopez with a dazzling and beautiful symbol of their love this Christmas. No, not their Vanity Fair cover blown up eight feet tall in a polished gold frame. I’m talking about an engagement ring.
Before you know it, it will be the holiday season and that means there’s plenty of presents to buy. Jennifer Lopez and A-Rod’s respective publicists have clearly started planning ahead for those potential credit card bills in January by securing themselves an extra-large Christmas bonus this year. Apropos of nothing more than just dating for eight months, J-Rod made their magazine cover debut for the December issue of Vanity Fair.
