Jennifer Lopez is currently walking around with one hell of a black eye. But don’t worry, don’t worry, the pop star didn’t get into a bar brawl; rather, the actress was simply putting in work.
The singer and star of the popular NBC drama Shades of Blue shared a snapshot on Instagram of her clean shiner. Naturally, fans were concerned for the 47-year-old, but the beauty made it clear that it was all in a good day’s work.
“Work can be rough…lol,” she captioned the image.
Lopez didn’t further specify exactly how the incident happened, but our guess is she was performing a dope stunt while filming her hit series. But while Lopez is keeping quiet on the details of the injury, she did, however, joke with a few hashtags that we should “see the other guy” and that “I’m a lover not a fighter.”
The mother of two being a lover not a fighter also just might explain why her ex-husband, Marc Anthony, is still in love with her. An insider recently revealed to Us Weekly that the Latin singer “is trying to get back together with her.”
According to the insider, Marc instantly wanted out of his now-failed marriage to Shannon De Lima, after learning that Lopez and her longtime boyfriend, Casper Smart, called it quits.
Lima and Marc ended their two-year marriage early last month and now, it looks like the artist is on the rebound. In fact, he made that pretty clear during last month’s Latin Grammy Awards when he caved to the audience’s request to kiss Lopez, who he was on stage with performing “Olvidame y Pega la Vuelta.”
Lopez and Anthony tied the knot in 2004 and split in 2011. The former couple, who share 8-year-old twins together, are currently working on Lopez’s Spanish album together, set to be released in 2017.
Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!
Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.
In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.
“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”
What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.
“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”
Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
