Words by Jessica Rodriguez
What can you say about Jenny from the Block? Jennifer Lopez, the Puerto Rican girl from the Bronx whose work and life has gone far beyond the 6 train, kept the hits coming hard in 2019. Let’s start with the fact that she produced and co-starred in Hustlers. The real life story of strippers turned criminal masterminds. Her work is being praised by fans and foes alike. So much so, the actress got her second Golden Globe nomination for her performance. Her first nod was 20 years ago for her now famous portrayal of Selena. Not to be forgotten, Oscar buzz is strong too!
But aside from her love with Rodriguez, it looks like she’s also happily in love with herself. “I always thought that I was going to find happiness and love and that another person was going to give that to me, and then I realized that’s not how it is at all,” Lopez said on a segment on The View. “You actually get to be happy all by yourself. If you can just kind of appreciate yourself and know your worth, your value, that you can be a happy person.”
Whether it’s acting, making music, being a fashion goddess, running several businesses, or raising a family. Lopez has–and continues–to do it all. Next up? Headlining the 2020 Super Bowl Halftime show with Shakira. You know, just the biggest show during the country’s most watched sporting event. And after that? Lopez will dive into whatever she chooses to pursue. Because the woman has hustle and heart to spare. She also proves that age is quite literally just a number and that midlife means, more life is yet to come.
