She's still Jenny from a... very affluent block.

Jennifer Lopez (born in 1969), aka J-Lo, is a singer/actress/dancer/producer/designer/tv show judge born in the Bronx to Puerto Rican parents. Her career started as one of the dancers in In Living Color before she landed a Star-Making Role in the biopic about the singer Selena. More acting roles followed as did a career in music. Her debut album, 1999's On The 6, was a huge hit and helped spearhead what music critics called "The Latin Invasion" of 1999 along with Ricky Martin and Enrique Iglesias. In 2001, she became the first performer with a #1 movie (The Wedding Planner) and album (J.Lo, from her infamous nickname) in the same week.

Unfortunately, her career has since taken a downward turn due to the Hype Backlash that followed. Her relationship with Sean "P. Diddy" Combs fell apart, in the wake of Combs being accused of gun possession, shooting, and injuring people at a nightclub (a charge he was ultimately acquitted of). She moved onto a high profile relationship with Ben Affleck, spawning the Bennifer nickname and producing the critical and commercial flop Gigli. Her music career stalled after the release of the single "Jenny From the Block", which was supposed to address accusations that she was a money-grubbing sell-out, but only made things worse with its video, which was the exact opposite of what the song was trying to say.

She's done some advocacy work in various ways, including vaccination awareness for some diseases, and for awareness of violence against women.

Lopez still acts and records music, appeared as a judge on American Idol on the 2011 season, and from 2016 to 2018 starred as "Harlee Santos" in Shades of Blue, a TV series for which she was also executive producer. Her most famous physical ... asset is her large, curvy rear, which has sparked a few joke debates about whether breasts or butts are better.
