These Are Jlo’s Most Iconic Video Looks

It was announced that Jennifer Lopez would be this year’s recipient of the MTV’s Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. The award is a huge honor, and is meant to celebrate artists whose music and videos have made a major impact on pop culture.

Passed winners of this prestigious award include Beyonce, Rihanna, Britney Spears, Janet Jackson, and Justin Timberlake, so she’s in good company. This also marks a major milestone as J.Lo is the first Latinx woman to win the award. Our girl is breaking boundaries, ya’ll!

She’s been entertaining us for nearly 20 years and now we can watch her hit the VMA stage to perform a medley of all her biggest hits, as is customary for all the Vanguards. Can’t freakin’ wait!

So to honor Jenny from the Block’s long and storied music video career, let’s take a look at some of her most iconic video moments.

The Original!

Sony Music Studios

In 1999, when she burst onto the scene – and charts! – with the video for “If You Had My Love” we all knew we were witnessing magic in the making and the beginning of a career that would change the face of pop music. The all white looks and rooms were crisp and cool!

The green lasers in Waiting for Tonight!

Sony Music Studios

Arguably her best song, but also undoubtedly her best video. “Waiting for Tonight” brought so much of J.Lo’s trademark sexiness. Who didn’t dream of having those green laser lights following you around at the club when you busted out the best perreo of your life.

Gypsy goddess realness in the original “Ain’t It Funny”

Epic

Yes yes, we all know the version of this song that *really* matters but the OG version, with its Spanish guitars and salsa pop style, is still a banger. But the sexy sepia toned video and Jenny’s gypsy look was one we all wanted to copy.

Bonus gif of the hot dude from the video!

Epic

Jennifer Lynn Lopez. You are truly doing the Lord’s good work by giving these fine men work, and setting off our thirst receptors.

But yes, the remix is really where it’s at!

Epic

Those super low cut suede pants paired with that floral crop top though! Who didn’t want that look?! Who doesn’t still want to rock this??? It was so cute and romantic while keeping it a little sultry. Love the song, love the outfit, love it all!

And then she tops it with this look!

Epic

Holy smokes! Like can anything top this moment? I’m getting hot flashes just looking at the gif, and simultaneously looking for orange leather bikini tops on Forever 21’s website.

The pink velour shortsuit of our dreams from the “I’m Real” remix!

Sony Music Studios

First of all, if you didn’t own a velour sweatsuit in the year 2000, what were you even doing? I bought one for $10 and lived in that bitch. But J.Lo’s pink shorts velour sweatsuit from the video for the “I’m Real” remix was fashion goals. Plus the hoops and baby hairs! Like this is all I wanted to be and still want to be!

It doesn’t get as much love, but the OG “I’m Real” had lewks too.

Sony Music Studios

The Boriqua Elvis leather jumpsuit was a definite banger! Even though the original, more pop version of the song is not neeeeearly as good as the remix (dont @ me, you know it’s true), the dance break with this jumpsuit was great! And I can’t deny her leather biker babe outfit she wear too.

Chola JLo!

Sony Music Studios

In the video for “Get Right” Jennifer brings us the many sides of her personality, playing a variety of characters with very different looks. Chola JLo stood out from them all because DUH. Those eyebrows and brown lipliner are a gift from Jordana heaven!

But this is the *real* “Get Right” look we wanted.

Epic

Perfect winter wear for a mami battling cold winters but hot abs. If this doesn’t make you want to book a one way ticket to NYC in November, just to be able to wear this and look amazing, then I don’t know what will.

The Timbs!!

Epic

Really though. Did heeled Timbs exist before Jenny from the Black made them a thing? In the video for that totally legendary jam, she works a platform in the middle of NYC rocking those with cargo shorts and everyone immediately thought the same thing: “I HAVE to have those.”

Quick aside: Can we send an RIP to Bennifer?

Epic

The “Jenny from the Block” video was an homage to their brief and passionate love affair, and hot pink bikinis on yachts were never the same again.

The curls and white bikini in “Play.”

Epic

She worked so many looks in this video but the flyness was evident and in abundance here. Especially with those white and black chaps situation.

Her homage to “Flashdance.”

Epic

In the video for “I’m Glad” Jenny pays tribute to one of the most important dance movies of all time – “Flashdance.” She rocks the undies, leg warmers and tight tank to make us all scream “what a feelin’!”

The Winter look from “All I Have”

Epic

The pink coat with the fur trim and heeled boots??? Winter sucks but this outfit would make the freezing weather well worth it.

This power bitch boss “Booty” look

Epic

Like who wants to mess at all with J.Lo when she’s out here looking like a power bitch that will cut your face and your checks with one pinky acrylic.

“Let’s Get Loud” And Feeling This Early 00s Look!

Epic

That halter dress and go go boot was everything Wet Seal was made of, and we LOVED it and needed it desperately. Oh we wanted to hget loud in a club while wearing this. We really did.

The sparkly babeliness of “On the Floor.”

Epic

If there is one this Jennifer Lopez loves more than anything else is a glammed up look. She brings the sparkle, the glow, the shine, all of it! And in this video she rocked the earrings we all later copped from the dollar store and the sequins dress we’ve always wanted.

Her Bronx babe stickball style!

Epic

I always loved the video for “I’m Gonna Be Alright” because it felt exactly like the Bronx, and her outfits screamed Bronx glam. Seeing her take the plate for stickball in her little denim cutoff shorts and striped crop top was everything! But really every look in this video rules, especially the hair curlers at the laundromat.

But her MOST iconic video look has to be…

Epic

Bitch, we all recreated this look from head to toe. It was the ultimate. Walking into a party, a restaurant, church, school, the dentist, ANY DAMN WHERE wearing this felt like you were going to kill the room dead. And we did!

Congrats, Jennifer, on nearly 20 years of bringing sass, sex appeal, glam, and cuteness to your videos, and giving us all the looks we emulated for most of our lives.

Video Dug Up From Cardi B’s Past Shows Her Saying She Used To Drug And Rob Men

Stay grateful you did not grow up in the era of Snapchat/ Instagram/ Facebook kids because you can delete but your recorded actions can still come back to bite. Cardi B knows the story. While the Afro-Latina queen of Trap isn’ making any apologies, the latest video to be dug up from her past is requiring her to give some answers.

Video of the singer, recalling a time in her life in which she felt forced to drug and rob men while seducing them has resurfaced.

Over the weekend, video of the “Money” rapper recalling how she used to drug and rob men resurfaced.

The video, which was recorded during an Instagram live broadcast, sees Cardi as she goes on a tearful verbal tirade about her past. This after, someone apparently questioned her success and accused her of not “putting in no fucking work.”

“I had to go ‘oh yeah, you wanna fuck me? Yeah yeah yeah let’s go to this hotel.’ And then I’d drug [expletivie] up and I’d rob them. That’s what I used to do.”

Users online were quick to comment.

“The fact that cardi b admitted to drugging and robbing men she would take back to a hotel for sex blows my mind,” wrote Twitter user @itsangelaa. “That’s not ‘keeping it real.’ that’s a crime.”

“I wonder what woulda happened if it were the other way round,” @BTSisthecauseo5 commented.

At the onset of the backlash, the rapper seemed to take the comments rather lightly.

The following day she also tweeted “IM THAT BITCH THEY LOVE TO HATE, IM THAT BITCH THEY HATE TO LOVE and I love it.”

On Tuesday, however, after users on Instagram and Twitter continued to simmer, she was forced to issue comment.

In a post to her Instagram, the rapper responded to the comments about the video by saying: “I’m a part of a hip hop culture where you can talk about where you come from talk about the wrong things you had to do to get where you are.”

Cardi B To Make Feature Film Debut In Stripper Scam Movie ‘Hustlers’ Alongside J. Lo

Cardi B has dominated the music charts with bangers that allude to her past life as a New York City stripper, and now the hip-hip star is ready to take over the big screen as a scammin’ dancer in the film “Hustlers.”

Deadline reports that the movie, set in New York during the 2008 financial crisis, is a tale of strippers who join together to swindle their Wall Street clients. Written and directed by Lorene Scafaria (The Meddler), “Hustlers” is based on a 2015 article by Jessica Pressler for New York Magazine titled “The Hustlers at Scores.”

The film will also star Jennifer Lopez, who Cardi worked with in 2018 on the hit “Dinero,” as well as Constance Wu (“Crazy Rich Asians”), Lili Reinhart (Riverdale), Keke Palmer (Scream Queens), Julia Stiles (“Silver Linings Playbook”) and Oscar-winner Mercedes Ruehl (“The Fisher King”).

Lopez is also producing the movie alongside STXfilms, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Benny Medina, who collaborated previously on the 2018 rom-com “Second Act.”

While “Hustlers” will mark Cardi’s first major acting role, she isn’t new to the screen. The Bronx rapper appeared as herself on Love and Hip Hop: New York for two seasons, before her explosive music career, and made a guest appearance on Gabrielle Union’s BET series Being Mary Jane in 2017.

Shooting for the film will begin on March 22, 2019, and we’re all excited to see our fave Dominican-Trinidadian on the big screen.
