In a striking fashion statement, Jennifer Lopez made waves in New York City, pairing a bold message tee with designer jeans. The star’s latest appearance highlighted her toned physique and sparked a mix of admiration and criticism from the public.

Jennifer Lopez turned heads in New York City this week, flaunting her sculpted abs and distinctive fashion sense during a solo outing. The 54-year-old “Jenny from the Block” singer was seen striding confidently along a sidewalk, sporting a white cropped top that boldly displayed her toned midsection.

The white crop top cut off just beneath the bust and had a message in bold black letters, “JLO BE MY MAMA.” This playful yet clear statement contrasts sharply with her 2016 hit song, “Ain’t Your Mama,” hinting at a shift in the star’s personal narrative as she approaches her 55th birthday on July 24.

Accompanying her striking top, Lopez wore a pair of mid-waisted non-stretch baggy jeans by Acne Studios, priced at $750. To complete her casual yet chic look, she layered with a cozy, pink sweater that added a vibrant touch to her ensemble.

Her hairstyle was equally relaxed, with her locks parted to the side and swept into a simple updo, allowing loose strands to frame the right side of her face delicately. Jennifer Lopez didn’t skimp on accessories, pairing her outfit with large, hooped earrings and fashionable black sunglasses.

Her choice of handbag was equally impressive — a Lady Dior mini bag. The bag made with hand-woven natural wicker is currently priced at $5,200. The singer’s confident stride and bold fashion choices didn’t go unnoticed, drawing various reactions from fans and fashion enthusiasts alike.

The public’s response to Lopez’s outfit was a mix of admiration and criticism. Some praised her for maintaining such an impressive physique at her age, while others felt her fashion choices were more suited to a younger demographic.

One fan commented, “You can look great over 50. And she does but doesn’t mean you need to dress as a teenager. We’ve seen it all before many times. I think enough is enough Ms. Lopez.”

Another added, “She looks absolutely incredible for her age! She does unfortunately tend to be very inappropriate sometimes! It is so unnecessary! She is gorgeous by showing less she would have so much more respect!”

The outfit, particularly the jeans, also sparked curiosity and debate. One commenter bluntly asked, “When did dirty looking pants become fashionable…” while another inquired, “How much were those dirty jeans?”

Not everyone was focused on the clothing, though. Some couldn’t help but marvel at Lopez’s impressive physique, with comments like “Those abs tho [sic]” and another one stating, “Her abs are amazing” highlighting the singer’s dedication to fitness.

Criticism also came in stronger tones. One person commented, “She’s ridiculous,” expressing disapproval without any sugar-coating.

Another user pointed out, “[What] is the point of this outfit? [I] understand you are fit but you aren’t in your 20’s anymore,” indicating that Lopez’s style might not align with everyone’s expectations for her age.

However, not all comments were centered around her appearance. A few fans expressed concern for the star’s emotional well-being. “She has been looking very sad last few weeks… I hope she builds herself up again be strong no matter what you are going through [sic],” shared one concerned follower.

It appears the commenter hinting at J.Lo’s sadness might be onto something because the “Shotgun Wedding” alum elicited similar reactions just last month.

Jennifer Lopez turned heads at the Christian Dior Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2024-2025 show during Paris Fashion Week on June 24. Despite her stunning look, some netizens quickly noticed her serious demeanor, sparking concern on social media.

Speculation ran high as some questioned her choice of accessories. “gloves? She wants to hide her ring off [sic]?” one curious netizen asked, referring to Lopez’s wedding ring and her marriage to actor Ben Affleck.

Lopez’s appearance at the fashion show in Paris came just days after a relaxing vacation with friends in Positano, Italy, on June 21. She stunned in a plunging white one-piece swimsuit and matching open-toe heels, her long hair styled in a voluminous ponytail.

She accessorized with oversized sunglasses, gold jewelry, and a basket bag. During her trip, she basked in the sun, snapped selfies, and laughed with her companions.

Earlier that week, on June 18, photographers captured Lopez on a boat, showing off her toned abs in a cream-colored bandeau top and multicolored shorts. She completed the look with gold sandals and her signature Dior bag.

While Lopez enjoyed her Italian getaway, her husband, actor Ben Affleck, remained in Los Angeles, busy filming his new movie, “The Accountant 2.” Lopez and Affleck’s separate engagements followed rumors of their divorce that surfaced in May.

During a press tour in Mexico City for her new Netflix action movie, “Atlas” on May 22, Lopez dismissed a reporter’s question with the help of her co-star, Simu Liu. When a reporter asked her about her rumored divorce from Affleck, Liu promptly intervened.

Shutting down the query, Liu politely said, “Okay, we’re not doing that. Thank you so much, guys. We really appreciate it… thank you, thank you.” Meanwhile, Lopez chuckled and smiled in response before addressing the matter.

Glancing at Liu, Lopez leaned forward, telling the reporter, “You know better than that.” Then Liu encouraged the press to maintain a positive atmosphere, stating, “Come on, don’t come in here with that energy.”

Lopez’s brief remark at the press tour followed reports of tension in her marriage with Affleck, with both reportedly living separately. Amid breakup speculations, the couple reunited on May 16 at their children’s event. On May 19, Affleck was spotted driving solo in Los Angeles, wearing a plaid shirt and his wedding ring.

The duo’s recent appearances have done little to quell the rumors, as netizens reacted with mixed opinions to Lopez’s handling of the reporter’s question. Some interpreted her reaction as a confirmation of the divorce rumors.

One user commented, “How can you say we are divorcing without saying we are divorcing.” Another expressed concern, saying, “Why aren’t you denying it my heart breaks for u if this is true.” One noted Lopez’s facial expression and stated, “If there was no basis for this, she would’ve said not true. it’s obviously accurate.”

Others defended Lopez, emphasizing her right to privacy. “She has the right not to answer personal questions. I wouldn’t either,” one supporter commented. Another remarked on Lopez’s feelings about the reporter’s question, saying, “She looks so hurt.”

This is not the first time Jennifer Lopez’s serious demeanor has been noticed in front of the camera. At the Met Gala on May 6, netizens labeled her “rude” for her seemingly dismissive behavior toward another guest.

A video shared by the guest, Anika Reed, depicted Lopez giving her the cold shoulder, and the public was not here for it. The clip showed the Hollywood star walking up the entrance steps with the help of her team. Reed politely asked Lopez, “Who are you wearing tonight?” as the “I’m Real” singer passed by her on the red carpet.

Lopez, who appeared unbothered and uninterested, briefly acknowledged Reed’s question, ever so slightly turned her head to look at her, and curtly responded with, “Schiaparelli.” She then continued in the direction she was going and greeted someone else.

“#metgala co-chair @jlo briefly told me about her look for the night: @schiaparelli ✨,” captioned Reed alongside the video of her and Lopez’s exchange. Many social media users were unimpressed by how Lopez treated Reed and took to online platforms to express their disapproval.

“So RUDE [sic],” criticized an Instagrammer, while another slammed, “she is always mean. just unclassy [sic]. ” Echoing the sentiment, another social media user simply commented, “AWFULNESS [sic].”

Lopez’s behavior toward Reed contrasts sharply with a previous statement about her character by her “Hustlers” co-star Constance Wu. In a 2021 interview, Wu divulged that Lopez’s mother, kids, and sister often visited her on set, and added, “They’re all really kind and down-to-earth.”

However, in 2019, two years before Wu’s assertion, Lopez addressed public opinion about her “diva” attitude in an interview. She admitted that she doesn’t always “come off as warm,” echoing a remark once said by her manager, Benny Medina.

“I think there’s some truth to that. I’m incredibly impatient. I want everything now. It’s hard for me to tolerate a slow pace. I get annoyed with it. I don’t like the word ‘no.’ Like really bad. Really bad,” disclosed Lopez.

She continued, “If you try to tell me no, I will get into a bad argument with you about why it can happen, and how it can happen, and why you can’t do it.”
