Want an inside look at Jennifer Lopez‘s fabulous life and her equally amazing 50th birthday party? No? Too damn bad. Jennifer’s YouTube account decided to treat the peasants to a day in the life of the gentry folk–giving us a sneak peak into Jennifer’s birthday shenanigans which involved a totally low-key party and of course simple little gifts. One in particular: a custom Porsche that cost more than $146,000 courtesy of her new fiancé Alex Rodriguez. And JLo doesn’t even drive herself.
The video starts with A-Rod and the kids (both JLo’s and A-Rod’s) preparing Jennifer’s surprise. So the surprise is the car, and A-Rod’s fourteen-year-old daughter Natasha drives up to a blindfolded JLo and surprises her. Which to me is a bad idea. A-Rod gets his soon-to-be-wife and makes sure she can’t see the surprise; so if Natasha’s foot slips and she kills her dad and her new stepmom with the car, JLo won’t see it coming. But that doesn’t happen, and instead A-Rod shows JLo her brand new car!
This is a 2019 red 911 Carrera GTS Porsche and it retails for $146,420, so if this is a custom job? Like it’s probably insanely priced. Here’s pics of the custom car:
So yeah, it’s expensive over-priced unnecessary rich people shit that lost a huge amount of its value literally the moment it was driven off the dealership lot–but then JLo says:
“I’m going to have to drive? It’s beautiful! I’ve never driven a car like that! I’ve never had a car like this. I’ve never driven a car, period! My heart’s beating out of my chest!”
You bought a woman who never drives… a car? Apparently JLo hasn’t driven in “25 years”. You know what happened 25 years ago? JLo became a huge fucking celebrity with a personal driver–so that tracks.
JLo does get behind the wheel and shows us she can still drive. Then she says this:
“Baby I know how to drive! I remember! I haven’t driven in so long baby. Baby this is so good. You’re giving me my independence back. I did not expect anything like this. This is so crazy. I felt like the party was enough! …I love it. I’ve never had a car before. I love it. I love it Papi. I’m crying… My heart is beating so fast. I haven’t driven in so long, but that’s like a little car I can manage.”
I laughed out loud at “You’re giving me me independence back.” Like, Jennifer Lopez–net-worth $380 million–was not independent until she was gifted a $150,000 Porsche to drive? AHAHAHAHAHA. Rich people really have no concept of reality. I’ll take the $380 million off your hands if you just needed some wheels, JLo? I have a car–like I woulda swapped you for my Mazda, girl!
