Jennifer Lopez celebrates 20 years of ‘J.Lo’ album & faces criticism over the new #LoveDontCostAThingChallenge she started over the weekend

Jennifer Lopez’s 2001 album J.Lo is one of her best albums to date, and it just turned 20 years old on January 23. The album is packed with hits, including “I’m Real” and the classic single “Love Don’t Cost a Thing.”. Even J.Lo herself knows how iconic the song is, she recreated an updated version of the “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” video on a beach. J.Lo specifically re-created the scenes on the beach where she discards her possessions and most of her clothes. This time around, she even threw her bracelet into the sand…. THEN CAME THE CHALLENGE.

She tweeted “Can’t wait to see your renditions” of what she’s calling the #LoveDontCostAThingChallenge. And lots of people are saying “REALLY JLO?”

Basically the consensus between all of us “regular” people is…. “Uhh, I’m not sure throwing my most expensive possessions in the sand is the best move for me right now, financially.”

Billie Eilish paid $35 for 1 box of Froot Loops and thought that was NORMAL

The pandemic opened up the floodgates for online shopping, but it also opened up Billie Eilish to realistic prices of food versus how much she thought it costs.

The 19-year-old singer told Vanity Fair in her latest cover story that adulting has introduced her to pragmatic prices after she “grew up with no money.” Now, stardom has catapulted her into tremendous wealth, from selling multiplatinum records to selling out arena tours. She went on to say “It’s a really weird position I’m in. I feel kind of stupid because I’m like, I don’t know how much Froot Loops are. I tried to order one box of Froot Loops and I was like, Oh yeah, sure. It’s $35. I didn’t know that that’s expensive,” she said while raising her eyebrows… And of course she was shocked and probably happy to see 70 mini boxes of Froot Loops show up at her doorstep…. OH TO BE A CELBRITY

Sources close to the actor say that Ben accepts he would be better off being single for a while, “Unless there’s some miracle and Ana comes back asking for another chance. He is really focused on prioritizing himself and his kids rather than relationships, and his friends have been joking about him taking an oath of celibacy. Whether or not he can stay single for long remains to be seen.”
