Flashback Friday - Bennifer edition - "Jenny From The Block"

Jennifer Lopez has left/or was dropped from Sony Music. Does this mean the days of a Ja Rule/J. Lo collaboration are over? Whatever happened to Ja Rule?

I never thought Ben Affleck was "hawt" except in this video which came out in 2003.

I went to the premiere of one his movies during the height of the "Bennifer" era and it was madness.

After this SONG was released, all my friends would refer to themselves as "....from the block." I was somehow able to work the sentence, "don't be fooled by the rocks that I got", into everyday conversation.

Have a great weekend.

This oddly makes me a bit sad. Maybe its because I was at epic records when "on the 6" came out. I still laugh at that title...no one outside of nyc knew what it meant!!

Totally off-topic, but I noticed a few months back that you mentioned wanting to see Good Hair, which I think is part of how I stumbled onto your blog in the first place.

Did you ever find a place to see it? It's out on DVD in the States if you have resources to send you a copy. I'd be glad to pitch in if you don't. :)

stellino - Grazie...no I haven't seen yet but plan to pick up a copy when I do make it back to the States or I can get it from Amazon UK.

Yeah I think that was when I still kinda liked Jen, but that time has passed and I thank God that it has.

Ha! I always thought Ben was a hawtie!

tiffany - ha. I'm very curious to see what happens to her album. I read another record label is going to distribute it.

cherrye - naw, I didn't see it until this video. Not saying he wasn't handsome but "hawt" that a special term. :)

I've always been a Matt (as is Damon, we're on a first name basis...) girl, personally.

Oh, J.Lo. I had to learn a dance to Jenny from the block for the finale of a dance recital...some classy late 90s moves. Ni-ice.

nyc/caribbean ragazza said...

Deidre - Yes she did have some very ni-ce moves back in the day. Folks need to respect that!

I love your Flashback Fridays. Damn, you really pinpoint some quintessential moments that I had put on the Alzheimer's shelf.

Jenny From the Block. Man oh man, I wanted Bennifer to happen so bad. . .
