Go easy on the Grammer and Spelling with me guys, this is my first myTake.
Jennifer Lopez has been someone I had idolized since I was a young child, I remember seeing her on MTV in her ' If you had my love video' and thinking what a beautiful lady she is. She came across sweet, confident sexy but also refreshingly humble. I watched all her movies, and spent the rest of my early adult years looking up to her as an Idol. That is untill the recent few years. Now this may come across bitchy, and I in no way intend for it to be that way, more just putting my opinion out there and seeing arguments for and against my view.
Jennifer Lopez STILL is a beautiful woman, and to deny that she doesn't look amazing at 51 years old would be just silly. However, there appears to be a huge shift in her personality. I find the more coverage I get of Jennifer Lopez the more I find her (what us British call it) 'Not my cup of tea'. There just seems to be a lot of self-aggrandising and a general boastful vibe that I have observed of her. She should be proud of her achievments, she's a talented singer and has made it quite big in Hollywood, but I feel her proudness extends beyond just being humbly aware of her success. I feel that she has now got to a point where she has 'become to big for her own boots. I could be very wrong here, and I am open to be corrected, but there seems to be this constant brag of how well she looks for her age.
'People say I look better now than I look in the 2000's ' - Saturday Night Live 2019. This very well could of just been a general chit chat and an innocent blip, but to me it comes across as a little bit of a brag. I feel like she wants to almost be worshiped for how well she looks, and almost as if she thinks she's better than everyone else and an elite. There seems to be this constant flouting at any oppotunity 'look at my body' 'look at how good I look for 51'.
The final straw for me was when she released her skin care line. There was a lot of contradiction around how she's kept her skin looking well, claiming that her secret ingredient was olive oil even though previously in the past she had spoken highly of her love of La Mer,a lso previously speaking of her using just a gentle cleanser moisturiser and HIGH SPF. This frustrated me as she is charging ridiculous amounts of dollars for this overpriced skincare range that's main ingredient is Olive Oil. To then add insult to injury in her own advert there is much blurring, and heavy filters, when she claims this is how her skin looks so good.
To finalize my point, her serious 'Pick me girl' attitude seem to shine when being questioned about botox to which she claimed ' I haven't had Botox.. I'm not that person' to me that implies that it is a negative thing to have botox and she's 'above' that, which I really find quite distateful.

You said you idolised her since you were a little kid so what id say is going on is that you've become more mature and you've removed the rose tinted glasses. Jennifer Lopez more than anything is a business woman and her main product is Jennifer Lopez and she promotes this product through her music, dance, fashion, the media, social media, TV, movies, consumer products. What you are seeing is the image she projects whether thats good or bad. You see this with all celebrities everything real or fake, good or bad, deeply personal or otherwise is a PR exercise. Lopez has spent 30 years marketing herself as a product.
Lopez has a net worth of $400million after 30 years in the biz. Jenny from the block didn't get that from looks, talent and being nice no she had to do a lot of shit for that from just a back up dancer on the Janet Jackson tour and a music video in 93 to daytime TV and straight to video movies to her big break in 97, when she realesed her first single she was nearly 30 which is rare for a woman her age to break through and become super successful in Hollywood & music industry let alone for their success to continue to grow even past age 40. Its more common now but then if you didn't make it as an actress/singer/dancer before 30 you never would. I think she was hotter in late 90s.
