Hurricane Harvey Relief: Which Celebrities Donated?

Hurricane Harvey was a Category 4 storm when it first made landfall in Texas.

We have all seen the photos of the flooding. We've seen highways that have flooded so high that the water above them has waves.

We've seen people standing on rooftops, people riding boats between houses, and heard the horrifying stories of people who were swept away by the water.

Celebrities have heard this, too, and they have been using their considerable platforms and their own personal resources to help with the relief effort.

As climate change continues to destabilize what were once more temperate weather patterns, these "500 year storms" will be coming more and more frequently.

Many believe that we need a better coordinate governmental response when these disasters strike. It's good to hear stories of private citizens acting as heroes, but it's better if they never have to.

In the mean time, however, boat owners have been taking time off of work and traveling with their boats towards Texas where they hope to help distribute supplies and reach people who are still stranded.

Celebrities are donating money to the relief effort, but some stars are doing even more.

1. JJ Watt

2. Jennifer Lopez and Alexander Rodriguez

QUIZ: How Old Is Jennifer Lopez In These Pictures???

Jennifer Lopez knows where the fountain of youth is!

Seriously! We bet you can't tell her age based on photos alone. We even doubt Alex Rodriguez's capabilities on the matter.

Photos: Jennifer & Alex's Cutest Moments!

But you can try your best! Take the quiz (below):

Jennifer Lopez Shares Revealing Picture: See It Here!

Jennifer Lopez has a smoking hot body, and she has no compunction with showing it off for her huge fanbase.

When she's not getting up close and personal with Alex Rodriguez, she's hitting up Instagram showing off her body to her fans. 

Jennifer Lopez Bathroom Selfie

Her latest picture, of course, pushes the boundary further than ever before, and we're not quite sure what the heck she's doing in the picture.

Have a look below. It's one of the ones that leaves nothing to the imagination. 

Jennifer Lopez Shows Off

See what we mean?

As we said earlier, the 47-year-old is gorgeous, but we're not so sure what look Jennifer was trying to go for with the picture. 

She's essentially wrapping herself around the chair. It may be pleasing to the eye, but we sure hope she did not hurt herself in the process. 

Lopez is busy promoting her new song "Ni Tu Ni Yo," so it seems plausible the singer is taking some crazy pictures to help garner attention for her new song. 

We all know Jennifer likes to hit up social media to show off her body, and she was recently blasted for having fake abs in a picture. 

Jennifer Lopez Shows Abs

“Omg…Just a smudge on the mirror…lol…not photoshop. #lordblessthehaters #gymrat #youshouldtryit #wishtherewasphotoshopforhaters,” she clapped back at the haters. 

Now, it's difficult when trolls persistently appear from the woodwork to cause some drama, so we were glad Lopez hit out at the people trashing her. 

Anyway. 

A Rod and J Lo

Queen Jennifer does not need to waste her time talking to the haters. She's in a relationship with A-Rod and the couple are too busy wondering whether they will be hitting up for their next "baecation."

When you think about it, they probably need vacations all the time when you consider the sheer amount of crazy rumors that appear about their relationship on the internet. 

What do you think about all of this? 

Sound off below!

29 Stars Who Shamed Their Body-Shamers

These 29 stars have dealt with such body-shaming, but their responses?

They totally shamed their body-shamers!

along with the hashtag: #stoptheshaming.

Everyone’s equal, everyone has a soul, and everyone deserves to be loved.”

5. Kim Kardashian

Like many others, Kim Kardashian was criticized for her weight gain during pregnancy, but her response on Twitter was pretty fabulous. “Anyone who has had a baby knows how hard it is to lose weight… your body totally changes! Making fun of me pregnant and making fun of me trying to lose weight now, shame on you. I’m not perfect, but I will never conform to your skinny standards. Sorry!”

6. Khloe Kardashian

13 Most Boring Break-Ups of All-Time

We'll be honest:

As a celebrity gossip website, we like it when couples break up and hurl insults at each other and act all immature and petty and bitter.

But it can also be refreshing to see stars as like fully-formed, fair and reasonable adults.

Just consider the amicable terms on which the following stars split from each other:

1. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner

Ben affleck and jennifer garner leave tavern in brentwood
Affleck and Garner split in June of 2015, but kept hanging out together. She finally filed for divorce nearly two years later, but it was so amicable, the pair aren't even using attorneys.

2. Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney

Lady gaga and taylor kinney attend celebrity ski and smile chall
Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney cooled their relationship off when it became apparent that their rigorous schedules were becoming a bit much. Gaga also said she wanted everyone to root them on. Something tells us they will be back together at some point.

3. Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin

Gwyneth paltrow and chris martin
Gwyneth likes to imply that she can do things better than everybody else, so it came as no surprise that she and Chris parted amicably. She wanted to prove that she's above all petty nonsense.

4. Hillary Duff and Mike Comrie

Hillary and Mike called time on their relationship in 2014 and have remained close ever since.

5. Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton

Blake shelton and miranda lambert red carpet
Their relationship coming to an end was hardly shocking, but they were surprisingly amicable about all of it.

6. Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfedlt

Jennifer Lopez Only Ate One Slice of Pizza a Day Before Her Big Break

Jenny from the Block wasn’t joking about starting off from nothing. Her early days in the business, as a dancer, were a constant struggle. Considering that now she’s dating a former Yankees player and can afford all the pizza she wants, J Lo has done good. She recently told Fox News, during an NBC press junket for her new show:

“I remember only getting to have one piece of pizza every day when I was a dancer. That’s how I lived. I did that for a couple of years before I got my first big job. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. For me, coming from that struggle this is a dream come true for me. I don’t say that lightly.”

Lopez is executive producing and judging on a new NBC show World of Dance. It gives dancers a chance to compete for $1 million. She hopes to give dancers a brand new opportunity.

“To create an opportunity for dancers was the best thing I could have ever done. It just reminded me of all the reasons why I love dance.”

The show, which also has Jenna Dewan Tatum, Ne-Yo and Derek Hough as judges, premieres May 8.

Jennifer Lopez and Drake Have Lasted a Whole Week

Drake and Jennifer Lopez are still a thing this week. And don’t look now, but things are HEATING UP.

According to People:

“Jen is looking forward with excitement to the new year. She keeps hanging out with Drake, and he has visited her house…She has nothing but nice things to say about Drake…Drake is very charming. He treats Jen with lots of respect. She seems very smitten.””

I’m sure Drake is a really nice person. Have you heard his music? He’s a sad and emotional guy. If he has something mean to say about you, he won’t say it directly to you. He’ll passive-aggressively mention it without saying any names.

You know things are serious because Rihanna unfollowed J.Lo on instagram. Rihanna seems thirsty for Drake’s attention right now, which is a turn in how their relationship usually works. Just don’t run back to Chris Brown, RiRi.

I’m still under the belief that Drake hasn’t met the kids. When that happens, then we’ll see how serious he is about this relationship.

Rihanna Unfollows J. Lo, Drake Fucks Another Super Hot Woman

The beautiful friendship of Rihanna and J. Lo might be over.

Though Rihanna once gave Jennifer Lopez a pair of “sick ass boots,” Rihanna has now unfollowed Lopez on Instagram. A deeper blow to their friendship has never been felt.

@badgalriri Thank you soooomuch for these incredibly sick ass boots!! #Rihanna #manolos #loveher #thebaddest

A photo posted by Jennifer Lopez (@jlo) on

What could be the cause of this shady move? Well, Drake.

Drake and Rihanna were on again and off again for awhile, but he’s now firmly in off again territory because he’s firmly on top of J-Lo.

A photo posted by Jennifer Lopez (@jlo) on

After their cuddling picture appeared on Lopez’s Instagram, Rihanna’s following disappeared.

No one really cares that their social media friendship has ended, but people are mostly amazed that Drake could get two of the hottest women in one year. You can’t discount his average looks and Canadian charm.

Drake & Jennifer Lopez: Dating?!

Drake. Drizzy. Aubree. Wheelchair Jimmy. The Emo Emcee.

Whatever you want to call him, Drake is one of the biggest - and most sensitive - rappers in the game.

But while it may make him an easy target for rival rappers, the vulnerable persona seems to be working for him with the ladies, as Drake is quickly becoming the male Taylor Swift in terms of the celebrity notches on his bedpost.

Drake Wins Again

(Actually, Drake is the male Taylor Swift in more ways than one, but that's a discussion for another time.)

Given the artists' shared fondness for sex with other famous people, the rumors that Drake and Taylor were dating didn't come as much of a shock.

(Even if they did turn out to be almost certainly bogus.)

In the same vein, it's both surprising and not remotely surprising that TMZ is now reporting that Drake is dating Jenifer Lopez.

Drake and Jennifer Lopez

It's unexpected in that J-Lo is 17 years Drake's senior and just got out of a serious relationship.

However, it makes perfect sense when one considers that Drake is so drawn to fame and success we're surprised he hasn't pulled a Kanye and buddied up to Trump.

See exhibit A, the  "Drake turns into the heart-eyes emoji when he hangs out with NBA players" meme as evidence of this phenomenon:

Drake Meme

Obviously, there are many more reasons to date J-Lo other than her wealth and fame, but we imagine her success is one of the many assets that he's drawn to (yes,. juvenile pun intended).

So what's the evidence that these two are hooking up?

Well, the speculation started when Drake attended Jen's Vegas show twice in one week.

Last night, he rented out Delilah restaurant in West Hollywood in her honor.

Granted, they were joined by 20 other people, but it's still a major gesture for a platonic friend.

A source close to the situation says Drake and J-Lo aren't officially dating yet, but seem to be "headed in that direction."

Careful with that man's heart, Jen.

It's fragile.

20 Celebrity Nose Jobs You Simply Won’t Believe

Noses are such little things, really, but tiny nips and tucks can make huge differences! For some, a nose job can be a door opener.

For others, a nose job can be a total mess - even a career ender.

Sometimes, it's obvious which is which. Other times, it's a thin line, as beauty is in the eye of the beholder, as they say, right?

In any case, here are 20 celebrity nose jobs you won't believe!

1. Britney Spears

Britney spears
Britney Spears will always be a doll to us. Hers was subtle enough that few people probably noticed ... or they were just too busy staring at that Catholic school girl skirt or skin tight spacesuit back in the day.

2. Michael Jackson

Michael jackson
Michael Jackson's nose job is the most dramatic on the list. He might have blamed his skin lightening on a genetic condition, but there's no denying his nose came from a knife.

3. Ashlee Simpson

Ashlee simpson
Ashlee Simpson's nose job was quite dramatic! It changed the entire look of her face! Wonder how her nose job affected her voice?

4. Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer aniston
Jennifer Aniston had a nose job to shed her father's schnoz. It happened early enough in her career that her new nose is the only nose we know.

5. Blake Lively

Blake lively
Blake Lively has never confirmed or denied that she went over the knife, but let's just say Gossip Girl would've had a field day on her blog with before-and-after photos like this.

6. Tom Cruise

Tom cruise
Tom Cruise had a nose job early on in his career. Oddly enough he waited until he was in his 40s for braces. Rumor has it Katie Holmes also had a nose job so maybe that's what Suri will get for her Sweet Sixteen.

Jennifer Lopez: Hillary Clinton WILL Be Our Next President!

Step aside, Nate Silver.

Jennifer Lopez is the new political prognosticator in town, and she's making some bold declarations just over a week away from Election Day.

Here's J-Lo in concert last night:

Yes, it seems the pop icon cares not for the contents of Anthony Weiner's Gmail account. 

Lopez is firmly #WithHer, and she's confident that we're headed for a Hillary Clinton presidency.

It's not exactly shocking, as as a woman of latin descent, J-Lo is basically the exact opposite of the white dudes who pulled a Frankenstein experiment on a baked ham and called the newly-reanimated monster Donald Trump.

And it's not uncommon for people to declare that the candidate of their choice is "our next president" while they're campaigning.

Jennifer Lopez Ice Age Collision Course Pic

Still, it feels like there's more than the usual election season optimism behind Jen's declaration (and her rendition of Aretha Franklin's "Respect").

Despite a scandal-plagued weekend, Clinton is still leading Donald Trump in all polls that took place outside of the Donald's head.

It seems the news that emails that mention Clinton were found in some dick pic aficionado's inbox wasn't enough to persuade millions of Americans to jump into the cockpit with a Cheeto-dusted kamikaze pilot.

Who would've thunk it?

Jennifer Lopez Films 'American Idol' In a Tight White Dress

Hillary joined Lopez on stage, which is not a huge surprise, as the event offered an easy way for her to address her base in a way that reminds people she's more than just a pant-suited politico.

What is surprising is the fact that Lopez's ex-husband Marc Anthony also joined her on stage.

We guess Hillary's not the only one who's willing to forgive a lot from the men in her life.

Hillary echoed her frequently-expressed sentiment that Trump is running a campaign of fear and manipulation.

Jennifer Lopez side butt selfie

The crowd seemed into it, which is not terribly shocking, as while she was born in the Bronx, Lopez has been vocal on the topic of providing a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, and her fans are no doubt aware that she's probably not a fan of Donnie's wall.

In fact, everything except her tax bracket makes Lopez a perfect representative of Hillary's base.

We guess you could call her Jenny from the bloc.

We'll show ourselves out.

When Fame Isn’t Enough What Do Celebrities Do?

Some celebrities found fame in a fluke accident, others found it because they worked very hard at their particular craft and became well known because they were either the best of the best, or they had something very unique, special, endearing, or odd about them.

For Donald Trump, his fortune and business sense sure did make him more money than he already had, but if it wasn’t for his awful hair and his outlandish personality, there’s no way he would have the sort of fame and celebrity status he holds today.

Fame is a fickle game. You have it for an instant, but there’s a reason people talk about the cliche “15 minutes of fame”. You had it, you loved it, if you don’t do something to keep it, it will be gone as quickly as it came. The celebrities who keep their fame are the ones who know how to play the fame game. However, just because you’re famous, it doesn’t mean you’re automatically fulfilled in life.

When fame isn’t enough, what do celebrities do with their time? Well, they do a myriad of things.

They Start Clothing Lines and Jewelry Lines

Though celebs do a host of different things to earn money and keep their fame, one of the most popular things that they do is start clothing and jewelry lines. Don’t believe it? For starters, there’s Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Victoria Beckham, Beyonce, Avril Lavigne, Jennifer Lopez, Michael Jordan, Michael Kors, Joan Rivers, Kim Kardashian, Gwen Stefani, Madonna, Jessica Simpson, Hilary Duff, and basically every other celebrity you know. The list doesn’t end.

As if the career paths they work/worked in didn’t give them enough, they started fashion lines because they needed to keep the income coming in and they needed to keep their names out there. Their name is the product. Plaster it on anything and it will sell.

They Ditch it Altogether and Follow Other Passions

Sometimes what a person did that made them famous doesn’t actually make them happy. When this is the case, celebrities will often ditch their prior life all-together and follow other passions. They might join forces with another business, they might create something all their own, they might open a restaurant, they might not have to work for the rest of their lives and just spend their time golfing in the Caribbean.

Hugh Grant is known to hate the world of acting. He comes back to it every once in awhile, but now he’s focusing on being a father. Steve Martin, the comedy and acting legend had switched his sights to writing bluegrass music for Broadway shows…whatever works.

Get J Lo’s Style: Design Tips To Imitate Lopez’s New Bel Air Home

Most of us can’t even imagine the kind of luxury that goes into celebrity homes, and Jennifer Lopez’s new Bel Air estate purchased from Sela Ward is no exception. From the gourmet kitchen – a common feature in many celebrity homes – to the theatre and guest house, the eight acre property combines French and Southern styles for a mix of high-end luxury and welcoming comfort.

If you want to bring a little bit of that luxury to your own home, you may need to scale it back a little, but that doesn’t mean it’s all out of reach. Here’s a sneak peek at the property with a few hints on how to make those details your own.

Swap An Amphitheater For A Home Theatre

Lopez’s new property has an onsite outdoor amphitheater ideal for entertaining guests, but most of us don’t have the space to build an entire performance space on our property. More to scale would be her home theater, seating 30.

That may still be a little big, but most larger homes can accommodate a home theater in the den, family room, or spare bedroom. It may not be huge, but you’ll enjoy a bigger screen size and amplified sound. Add some extra comfortable seating, and you’ll have a luxurious viewing space.

Hit The Pool

The Bel Air estate has both a swimming pool and a manmade swimming pond, perfect for the California weather, but maybe a bit much for those in colder climates. Still, swimming pools are a staple of high end homes, and by investing in an in ground pool rather than the less expensive above ground option, you’ll add a little extra class. In ground pools are also less prone to leaks since they’re typically self-contained and lack liners prone to tearing.

Be sure you consult with a contractor before launching a pool installation project – you don’t want to put yourself in a position where an inopportune leak or similar problem causes you to spend your time worrying about home restoration projects rather than enjoying the sun.

Focus On Bathroom Luxury

Celebrities’ bathrooms are often more similar to spas than to your average shower and sink set-up. But if you have room for a tub, you have room to upgrade a little bit. Consider adding an old school claw footed tub and and a pedestal sink with some extra plush towels. Bathrooms don’t need much more than some fancy soap and good design to feel like the pleasure center of the home.

Everyone deserves to love where they live, which is why it’s worth it to follow celebs’ leads and make room for enjoyment. Home is our refuge from work, from the office and errands, and it should feel that way. Just channel your favorite celebrity and enjoy!

Tracy Anderson Says Jennifer Lopez’s Kids Love to Crash Mom’s Workouts: ‘Max Is so Full of Energy’

Scott Roth/Invision/AP

Jennifer Lopez‘s kids want in on mommy’s workout.

“She’s such an awesome mom,” Tracy Anderson told PEOPLE of her client at Hamptons Magazine‘s annual Memorial Day Kick-Off party on Saturday. “That’s the thing I love about her, her kids will run into the session at any time.”

Emme is so sweet, she doesn’t interrupt, she just watches and twirls,” Anderson said. “But Max is full of energy.”

Anderson said the 8-year-old twins definitely have their mother’s talent.

“Let’s put it this way,” Anderson began, “they’re both going to have tons of options. They’re both clearly talented and beautiful kids already, for sure.”

Instagram Photo

Both Anderson and Lopez have spent past summers in the Hamptons, but Anderson said she’s gearing up to head to Las Vegas for Lopez’s residency.

“I design a new workout program for her every single week. And I have a trainer with her when she’s in L.A. and one in Vegas, and then I’m going to Vegas for her too. Jennifer Lopez is my main focus,” Anderson said.

“I’ve got an ‘Ain’t Your Mama’ body challenge going on now on Instagram, and you can join.”

Jennifer Lopez & Casper Smart: Getting MARRIED??

Oh, it's just a fling, they said.

Jennifer Lopez can't be serious about Casper Smart; she just wants a little post-divorce romp, they said.

Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart Pic

They were wrong.

Because five years later, J. Lo and Casper are still going strong.

So strong, in fact, that Casper proposed earlier this month, and the songstress said yes, according to Life & Style.

“They’ve settled on a secret late-summer wedding at Jennifer’s home in [the] Hamptons," a source tells the publication.

"It will be intimate, but there’ll be no shortage of glamour.”

The couple want to keep the affair fairly low-key (for a celebrity wedding, that is) by limiting the guest list to about 150 people, says the source.

Still, Jen's famous celebrity friends including Harry Connick, Jr., Keith Urban and Ryan Seacrest are expected to receive an invitation.

Casper and J. Lo reportedly broke up back in 2014 amid rumors that he was cheating, but sources later claimed the couple were faking the breakup for publicity.

Earlier this month, Jennifer gave fans a hint at what kept their relationship so strong:

Casper's amazing in bed.

In fact, she strongly insinuated that he blew her ex-husband Marc Anthony out of the water when it comes to bedroom activities.

“Last time I was here, they asked me who is better in bed — dancers, musicians, or actors? I said, ‘Dancers!’ ” she revealed.

“Musicians are too self-absorbed," she added. "They are too concerned with themselves to be great in bed.”

In case you weren't aware, Casper is a dancer. Mark Anthony is a musician.

Not too subtle there, J. Lo.

We haven't seen Jennifer wearing a ring, but we're sure keeping our eyes peeled.

Jennifer Lopez Thinks She’s "Chunky" in This Selfie, Raven-Symone Can’t Even

Jennifer Lopez is the hot cheerleader in high school who complains about being fat while the average Marys clutch their burritos whilst sneering from the sidelines.

The pop singer stopped by The View this morning and really had the ladies there blowing their tops over some comments she made about her own physique.

Referring to some photos J. Lo recently posted, host Sunny Hostin complimented the star's enviable figure and asked what she does to stay in shape.

Jen examined the pic above and took a shot at self-deprecation.

"I was a little bit on the chunky side there as you can see," she said.

And with that, Raven-Symone threw her hands in the air and walked away from the table while Whoopi Goldberg got up, opened up her jacket and approached Jennifer.

"Do we need to show you what chunky looks like?" Whoopi asked her. "This is a little bit on the chunky side."

Jennifer tried to backpedal, but no one was buying it.

"That's not what I meant," she said. "I fluctuate. I go up and down like seven or eight pounds all the time."

"So like when I'm doing the show, I go down and get slim," she explained. "And then when I stop I'm, like, eating and I get chunky. Not chunky, but you know, I feel it."

These words prompted Whoopi to stand up and flash once again, as if to say, perhaps you didn't hear me the first time. 

Jennifer revealed that she does a ton of cardio to prepare for her high-impact show in Las Vegas - the one in which she got so crazy on stage she actually split her pants during a performance.

Luckily, she's got a nice booty, so at the end of the day, it was kind of a treat.

Ray Liotta Talks Working With Jennifer Lopez On ‘Shades Of Blue’ [Interview]

If you’re familiar with Ray Liotta’s career, you might have seen the commercials for his latest project Shades of Blue, and thought it was familiar ground for Liotta. The actor, who is known for cult projects like Goodfellas, Field of Dreams, Cop Land, and Narc, has played his fair share of dirty cops and intimidating characters over the years, but Shades of Blue stood out.

Liotta found an interesting arc that made him say yes to NBC’s newest show, which just so happened to be the network’s best debut in seven years. On Shades of Blue, the New Jersey native plays a controlling and corrupt boss named Lt. “Woz” Wozniak. While the show is mainly about Jennifer Lopez, Liotta’s talent shines in a way that makes the actor an important part of the show, without taking away from its main star.

Ray Liotta sat down at the AOL studio to speak about what made him return to television, and what it’s like to work with Jennifer Lopez.

On why he took on television with Shades of Blue:
I was looking to do a 13 episode type thing just to have some consistency with work, and to help with the movies. It’s changed a lot — when I first started in the 70s and 80s, if you were doing television, you were going out to pasture. Now movie people are looking towards these cable shows. I read this and I really liked it. Jennifer, I didn’t know — in terms of her doing edgy stuff, I hadn’t seen anything, so that was a question, but when they had Barry Levinson directing the pilot and the second episode, I thought I would give it a shot.

On how Shades of Blue was pitched to him:
The character is extremely different and it will unfold itself as the time goes on. It was just the script. I didn’t want to be in “the J.Lo show.” I didn’t want to be the guy behind the desk, telling everybody else to do something. The script had some really interesting things that shocked me. Then I met the show runner and he showed me what direction they were going in. I saw that the character was really involved, and intricate. So, I decided to do it.

On his dynamic with Jennifer Lopez:
You just play make believe. You do what you’re supposed to do. We didn’t have a lot of rehearsal time, but I’ve been doing this for a long time. Some of it, what’s in the script, gave us an idea of what was going to happen in the future. You just go with that. Jennifer is great — she’s a real pro.

On consulting real cops for various roles:
A couple of episodes they did [consult], which is helpful to talk to them, because it’s fascinating what a cop does. I’m just so pro-cop. I know there’s been some incidents, but most cops are good and it’s a really tough job. Early on in my career, I would do ride alongs with actual cops in LA. It [...]

On the Floor: Jennifer Lopez Dances the Night Away with Her Twins

Jennifer Lopez has finally found some dance partners that can keep up with her moves – and they’re in the family.

The singer joined her children, twins Emme and Max, 7½, on the dance floor in some sweet new Instagram images.

Lopez, 46, and her “mini me” Emme were the cutest mother-daughter duo as they danced amid a group of festively dressed people.

Emme held tight to her mom with her arms wrapped around the singer’s waist. Lopez smiled happily, looking, as always, chic in white trousers and a mesh and lace top.

Max, donning a little turtleneck, also joined the “On the Floor” singer for a spin. The duo held hands while they boogied down in another cute photo from their evening.

“Me and my lil man,” she wrote.

Jennifer Lopez Sounds off on the End of American Idol

The kids dance abilities are no surprise, as Lopez often sounds off about her “special” brood.

“It’s unconditional love,” the star previously told PEOPLE. “I know everybody feels this way about their kids, but I just feel like they’re super special. I can’t wait to see what they do, and I feel like my job is to not mess them up too much.”

Jennifer Lopez Opens 2015 AMAs in (DANCE) Style!

Jennifer Lopez hosted the 2015 American Music Awards.

But it wasn't her monologue or her jokes that had people talking after this ceremony concluded.

It was her moving and grooving to most of the major hits over the course of the past calendar year.

Indeed, Lopez opened the show by impressing attendees via a stripped down version of "Waiting For Tonight."

From there, however, J. Lo got low; putting on an incredible dance routine to smash singles such as Uptown Funk, Anaconda, Feeling Myself, I Can’t Feel My Face, Girl Crush, Bad Blood, Trap Queen, Hotline Bling, Thinking Out Loud, Where Are U Now and Bitch Better Have My Money.

It was pretty amazing. Relive the snippets of the performance below... GIF style!

1. WAIT!

Wait
Lopez told the crowd to wait, don't applaud. The night wasn't about her. It was about all of the songs that brought us to this night. Cue dance number!

2. Uptown Funk

Uptown funk
Lopez kicked off the dance medley by backing it up, proving she is smoother than a fresh jar of Skippy.

3. Thinking Out Loud

I cant feel my face
Yup, Lopez broke it down and made this backup dancer one lucky man while "Thinking Out Loud" played in the background.

4. Bad Blood

Bad blood
Taylor Swift is awesome. This song is awesome. But Taylor Swift cannot do what Jennifer Lopez did with it. HOT STUFF!

5. Trap Queen

Lopez even put her spin on Fetty Wap’s "Trap Queen." We didn't see this one coming.

6. Where Are U Now

The camera cut to Justin Bieber at one point during J. Lo's take on his song. And the artist was clearly into it.

29 Totally Insane Celebrity Tour Demands

We all know demanding people in our day to day life. The person who MUST have a certain coffee cup from the company stash. The one who can't STAND if the office manager doesn't buy a certain creamer. That guy who complains to anyone who can hear if he has to park somewhere other than his "usual" spot.

Those people can be total buzzkills.

Well, guess what. Some of our celebrities can be demanding too. But this is what it takes to get them on the stage, so managers and reps and venue personnel the world over meet their demands and enjoy their brush with fame. (Or they don't. That's totally possible.)

Check out 29 outrageous celebrity tour demands! So. Many. Snacks. (And so. many. towels.)

1. Miley Cyrus

Miley cyrus at the 2015 vmas
Sigh. Once upon a time all she wanted backstage was Guitar Hero and Frosted Flakes because she didn't want to stop rocking. There's really no telling the myriad ways her demands have grown as she's gotten increasingly more...out there.

2. Pharrell Williams

Pharrell picture
Pharrell Williams once requested a troupe of belly dancers. Guess that's why he was so damn happy. (Badum CHHHHH...)

3. Kanye West

Long before Kanye West was Kim Kardashian's baby daddy, his tour rider held the demand that his dressing suite be entirely white, floor to ceiling. Now he's added an $8,000 bed (EIGHT THOUSAND DOLLAR BED) for North, as well as the tot's own personal chef to make her favorite meals with organic foods.

4. Taylor Swift

Among some of Taylor Swift's very first tour demands were: edamame (which she noted came from the frozen aisle of the grocery store), Starbucks grandes, and Ben & Jerry's. Throw in some Ugg boots and it just doesn't get much more basic than T.Swift.

5. Kid Rock

Kid rock image
Kid Rock is a simple man, really. His request? Packs of Hanes or Fruit of the Loom underwear, white one-pocket tees, white tank tops, and white socks.

6. Gwen Stefani

Gwen stefani in concert
The No Doubt front-woman, solo artist, mom of three, and judge of The Voice *used to* request "bright white rooms," 30 bottles of water, 10 white towels, 4 white candles (all the same scent), and a pesticide-free buffet. (Are you sensing a trend here with all the requests for white everything?)
