Jennifer Lopez (1969-Present), aka 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 In Living Color!]]'' 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 Ricky Martin and Music/EnriqueIglesias. In 2001, she became the first performer with a #1 movie (''The Wedding Planner'') and album (''J. Lo,'' from her famous nickname) in the same week.

Unfortunately, her career has since taken a downward turn due to the HypeBacklash that followed. 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 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.

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.

!!Jennifer Lopez provides examples of:
* AbsoluteCleavage: The famous Grammys dress. It provides the picture for that page.
* [[ActingForTwo Acting For Five]]: In the ''Get Right'' video she plays the DJ, the bartender, the Bar Dancer, an {{Adorkable}} {{Meganekko}} customer [[CastingGag with no sense of rhythm]] and a gang girl, plus the tradition music video dancing bit.
* 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.
** More an example of CompletelyMissingThePoint on the part of most everyone. The song is about how she's still just her normal self despite the luxurious riches. The video shows her with all these fabulous riches, but doing things like working out on a treadmill (in her fabulous apartment), hanging out with her boyfriend (on a yacht), walking her dogs (while wearing thousands of dollars in designer clothes), and fighting with her boyfriend (at a posh outside restaurant). It's the juxtaposition that the song is about, and it's the ordinary behavior in extraordinary surroundings that people miss.
** CaptainObviousAesop: Rich people still have day-to-day lives that are simply flashier than yours.
* BreakUpSong: Love Don't Cost A Thing. He'll Be Back. (Can't Believe) This Is Me.
* DevelopmentHell; Love? and how! Originally due January 2010, came out April 2011.
* DancingIsSeriousBusiness: One of the better female dancers in the world, with Music/BritneySpears.
* EverythingsSparklyWithJewelry: Including the line "Don't be fooled by these rocks".
* ExhortTheDiscJockeySong: Most of her singles (e.g. "Play").
* FakeNationality: She actually got some criticism for playing Mexican-American singer Selena in the film of the same name (Lopez is Puerto Rican.) This changed when people actually [[{{Tearjerker}} saw the movie]].
* GenderBlenderName: Played characters named Slim (''Enough''), Charlie (''Monster-In-Law''), and Ricki (''Gigli'').
* GratuitousSpanish: Spanish album.
* 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 did an entire cover story about her without mentioning it at all.
* MeaningfulName: She named her twins Max and Emme, in an all but certain nod to ''Dragon Tales''.
* MsFanservice
* NewSoundAlbum: ''This Is Me Then'' was more "Fuller" and personal then 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: Whether she has them or not is debatable (being Latino), but she does drop a rather jarring N-bomb in "I'm Real". Sort-of justified in that it was written by the (black) rapper/singer Ja Rule (although she probably should've had enough sense not to cause the controversy).
* OlderThanTheyLook:Nobody believe she's 44, at all!
* PayingTheirDues
* PrettyInMink: Worn lots of furs.
** GoingFurASwim: A photoshoot for "Vanity Fair" magazine. [[http://www.lovelylopez.net/photos/displayimage.php?album=lastup&cat=38&pos=12 Here]] and [[http://www.lovelylopez.net/photos/displayimage.php?album=lastup&cat=38&pos=13 here.]]
** NakedInMink: A [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jennifer_lopez_1.jpg photoshoot]] for "Movieline" magazine. [[http://www.lovelylopez.net/photos/displayimage.php?album=lastup&cat=38&pos=10 Here]] and [[http://www.lovelylopez.net/photos/displayimage.php?album=lastup&cat=38&pos=11 here.]]
** 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.
* RomanceOnTheSet: She and Ben Affleck when filming ''Film/{{Gigli}}''. The film was even rewritten to take advantage of that. That didn't turn out well.
* SillyLoveSongs: Her ''This Is Me...Then'' album
* SpicyLatina
