Jennifer Lynn Lopez (born July 24, 1969), a.k.a. 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 ''Series/InLivingColor'' before she landed a star-making role in the biopic about the singer ''Film/{{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 Music/RickyMartin, Music/EnriqueIglesias, and future husband Marc Anthony. In 2001, she became the first performer with a #1 movie (''Film/TheWeddingPlanner'') and album (''J.Lo'', from her famous nickname) in the same week.

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 Creator/BenAffleck, spawning the Bennifer nickname and producing the critical and commercial flop ''Film/{{Gigli}}''. Her music career stalled after the release of the single "Jenny from the Block", which (although a huge hit) 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. Interestingly enough, before she became famous, she was simply a paralegal and Notary Public working to an attorney.

Lopez still acts and records music, and as of the 2011 season, appeared as a judge on ''Series/AmericanIdol''. Her most famous physical... [[IncrediblyLamePun asset]] is her large, curvy rear, which has sparked a few talk show punchlines. Ironically, diet and fitness had already whittled her posterior to average size by 1999, which probably [[HollywoodPudgy says more about Hollywood's standards]] than J. Lo's bum.

!!''Don't be fooled by the tropes that I got/I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the Block'':
* AbsoluteCleavage: The famous Grammys dress. It provides the picture for that page. And it led to the creation of [[Website/{{Google}} Google's]] image search engine.
** Also in the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5_tnpdnNz4 video]] and [[https://images.genius.com/41ba8e142638206c26d8ffdd896a9fcb.1000x1000x1.jpg cover art]] for "Ni Tú Ni Yo", with a slit all the way up to the waist as well for good measure.
* AutoTune: One of the remixes of "If You Had My Love", and more recently, her cover of "Venus".
* BrokenAesop: The video for "Jenny From the Block" shows Jennifer walking around in various luxurious things, but the song is supposed to about how she's just the same girl as before she got rich.
* BreakUpSong: "Love Don't Cost A Thing," "He'll Be Back," and "(Can't Believe) This Is Me."
* DancingIsSeriousBusiness: One of the better female dancers in the world, with Music/BritneySpears.
* EverythingsSparklyWithJewelry: Including the line "Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got".
* ExhortTheDiscJockeySong: Most of her singles (e.g. "Play").
* GenderBlenderName: Played characters named Slim (''Enough''), Charlie (''Monster-In-Law''), and Ricki (''Gigli'').
* InDaClub: The setting of "On The Floor" and "Get Right".
* InterCourseWithYou: A theme of ''J.Lo''.
* InLoveWithLove: Noted as having had three different marriages and said she'd do it again.
* MaleGaze: Seriously, put together a top ten list of reasons why she's famous and popular, and just ''try'' leaving out a mention of her butt. That said, ''Rolling Stone'' once [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome did an entire cover story about her without mentioning it at all.]]
* MsFanservice: Several songs play up her sex appeal, for example "Get Right", where she's wearing several midriff-exposing outfits and dancing sensually.
* NewSoundAlbum:
** ''This Is Me, Then'' was more personal than her prior works.
** ''Love?'' is much more musically based around EDM than her previous works. This is the case with a lot of musicians who have also veered more into this area - see Music/ChrisBrown, Music/{{Rihanna}} and Music/BritneySpears.
* NWordPrivileges: She created controversy when she jarringly dropped the N-bomb in "I'm Real (Murder Remix)." The black rapper Ja Rule (who co-wrote and was featured in the remix) came to her defense, saying that she wasn't the first Latin person to say the n-word and that it was just another thing for people to complain about her. Clearly, not everyone agrees that it was acceptable for Jennifer to say it. [[note]]It's possible for a Latinx to be of African ancestry, but Jennifer never said anything about being Afro-Puerto Rican.[[/note]]
** She later avoided this issue with the single "I Luh Ya Papi", whose original version written by {{Music/Tinashe}} was called "I Luh You Nigga".
* PrettyInMink: She likes to wear fur coats for public events, from galas to her film premieres.
** GoingFurASwim: In a photoshoot for ''Vanity Fair'' magazine she wore a full length white fur coat over a bikini.
** NakedInMink: In [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jennifer_lopez_1.jpg a photoshoot]] for ''Movieline'' magazine she wore a white fox wrap around her torso.
** Some scenes in the "Jenny from the Block" video show her in a fur coat, silver-grey bikini bottoms, and not much else.
* RealWomenHaveCurves: Her status as a sex symbol during the late 90's and early 00's was seen as finally breaking the trend of the super-skinny "Heroin Chic" look of the early and mid-90's.
* SillyLoveSongs: Her ''This Is Me...Then'' album.
* SpicyLatina: Some of her roles play up this.
* StuffyOldSongsAboutTheButtocks:
** [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "Booty"]].
** According to Music/SirMixALot, she's TheMuse responsible for his epic "Baby Got Back."
* AWildRapperAppears: Has quite a few songs with this. To name a couple:
** Music/{{Flo Rida}} in "Goin' In".
** "Booty" has two versions, one with Music/IggyAzalea, and another with Music/{{Pitbull}}.
** Creator/LinManuelMiranda in "Love Makes the World Go Round." The song also opens with his famous "love is love is love" from the Tonys.
* {{Worlds Most Beautiful Woman}}: Her curvaceous assets have earned her the top spot on FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the world twice in a row an achievement no other women has ever attained before!
