JLo, A Rod, Kim Kardashian: This Is How We Eat Tacos

Published

When you think of taco night, immediately you consider wearing something loose fitting so you can stuff your face and still be comfortable. Celebrities, however, don’t always have that same thought process.

On Wednesday, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez invited some folks over for taco night and whelp, it looked more like an Oscars pre-parry. Folks were glammed up to the T.

Kim Kardashian, one of the many A listers joining the crew, rocked a black crop top. black pants and a full pink fur jacket. As for Lopez, she looked like she just stepped off the stage from the Latin Grammy Awards, sporting a pink and black bedazzled jumpsuit and of course, makeup for the gawds.

Also hanging for taco Wednesday was Kim’s mother, Kris Jenner, and sister, Kourtney Kardashian, who looked a bit more casual in a grey sweater.

But aside from wondering why people were so dressed up for taco night, we are still scratching our heads about Lopez and Kim’s relationship. “When Kimmy comes we always have to take a selfie,” Lopez wrote on Instagram.

Meh … who knew?!

Other attendees included Leah Remini, Guadalupe Rodriguez and Carole Bayer Sager.

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.
