We Sat Down With Jennifer Lopez To Talk About Her Latest Movie ‘Second Act’ And Why It’s Important To Remain Loyal To Your Dreams

If there’s one thing you should know about Jennifer Lopez, it’s that she doesn’t believe in limiting herself. In fact, she feels “it’s about not having one passion.” Although, with her impressive and ever-growing resumé, we wouldn’t expect to hear anything less. With the upcoming release of J.Lo’s new movie, “Second Act,” the multi-hyphenate is a reminder that often times our greatest obstacles to pursuing our truest desires are ourselves.

FIERCE sat down with the one and only Jennifer Lopez to talk about her latest film.

The Bronx-born star opened up about her career, second changes, and blocking out the haters.

Speaking about the accomplishments of her career and, like her character Maya in Second Act,

“I was lucky to have parents that made me feel that I could accomplish anything,” Lopez told us at the press junket for her movie. “The value of that, even now as I speak it out loud, I realize really informed my whole life and career, and who I am as a person. They didn’t put limits on me, my mom or my dad.

“They said, ‘You want to be the President of the United States? You could be that. You want to go to the moon? You can do that.’ When they take all of the boundaries off, then you get to dream whatever dream you want. That is such an important thing.”

But when you dream big, it’s hard to not experience fear. The thought of the unknown, possible failure, and taking a huge leap of faith is scary as hell. It’s something we brought up to J.lo, but she wasn’t having any of it. “It’s about realizing that nobody is getting in your way,” she said reassuringly. “The only one that gets in your way is yourself. People are used to pointing the finger and going, ‘I can’t do it because this happened, or that guy didn’t give me the opportunity.’ You find a different way.”

When asked what advice she has for Latinas who feel unfulfilled with their career, Lopez paused for a moment—almost as if she was about to reveal her best-kept secret. “You don’t get to just try one thing. Nobody says when you’re born, ‘You get to try one thing and that’s it. If you mess that up, or if it doesn’t go exactly how you expect, you’re done.’ That’s not how life works.”

Lopez should know. The Boricua’s latest project might see her on the bigscreen, but Lopez has fulfilled multiple careers in an industry where most pursuers are hardly able to take on one. Not only is she an actress, but she’s also a dancer, a singer and a producer. “It’s about trying different thing,” she continues. “It’s about finding your passions. It’s about not having one passion. Who says you have to have one passion? You can have 20 over a course of a lifetime. You can start learning how to play the piano when you’re 80 years old—what does it matter? You don’t have to do that when you’re five. Oh, I missed my boat. It’s not like that.”

For Lopez, “Second Act,” which hits theaters on December 21, is all about embracing the many passions and stages you have throughout your life. As she put it, “You have a new opportunity every day to be whoever you want to be, and that’s what this movie is about. You can always have a second act, third act, fourth act, fifth act. It’s really up to you.” Lopez’s thriving career and constant hustle are proof that there is value in her words. Like the movie “Second Act,” J.Lo encourages us to pursue our passions, because if you’re being honest with yourself you know you probably have more than one.

This Quietly Posted IMDB Page Could Mean ‘Coco 2’

To say our worlds were rocked when Pixar finally gave us a touching film about la cultura a few years ago would be the biggest understatement of the century. ‘Coco,’ the 2017 American 3D computer-animated fantasy starring Gael García Bernal and Benjamin Bratt filled our hearts and also brought us to tears. Still, as satisfying as the film was, there’s no doubt it left us craving more. And it looks like we might just get it.

An IMDB page for Coco 2 has been created and I’m sorry but I can’t stop freaking out!!

According to IMDB user anthandsoc-95189 who appears to have long had the inside scoop on upcoming films, ‘Coco 2: Return To the Land Of the Living’ is in the works! Some digging around has also revealed that another sight might have information on the plot and characters of the sequel film. Of course, this information has yet to be confirmed and might be purely a wish, but if it is we’ll dream big!

According to IMDB ‘Coco 2’ will take place 6 years after the first film

‘Coco’ / Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

The IMDB page says “It’s been 6 years since the events happened for Miguel. But when Hector, Imelda, and his great grand-abuelos need Miguel’s help to come back to the Land of the Living because some mysterious sinister masked skeleton is haunting and rules their world with an iron fist and sword and hates music.”

Which means, if IMDB is correct, we haven’t seen the last of Mama Coco!

Sweet Coco could have a really big role in the new film!!

Of course, other sites have other insights into the could-be sequel…

‘Coco’ / Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

Because of course everyone has an opinion!

According to Fandom.com ‘Coco 2’ will take place six years after the first film.

We’ll see Miguel’s family attempt to throw him a fiesta, but sadly Miguel, still upset about Mama Coco’s death, will be upset.

When Miguel meets a sophisticated, ghostly and well-bred skeletal spirit Miguel will attempt to return to The Land Of The Dead for a vacation.

Now that’s an insane idea for a spring break.

In this version of the sequel, Miguel will a dark black hole to go back to The Land Of The Dead, to see Papa Hector and Mamma Imelda.

Of course, Miguel will be astonished when he sees his old family members for another time and finally gets to see Mama Coco.

Soon enough, Miguel is racing against time, once again, to avoid being a skeleton.

But this time, Marcel might not be so bothered by the idea of living amongst the dead for forever.

Of course, all of this is speculative. Who knows if Pixar has plans for a sequel in the works, but as one fan points out this clip by Pixar on the DVD release has some great hints!

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.
