read the headline for an article out of Australian tabloid New Idea. The outlet insisted that while Lopez, who turned 51 in July, is routinely praised “for her age-defying appearance,” some fans have supposedly been wondering if the superstar singer has “gone too far in her efforts to turn back the clock.”
The reason for all this speculation? A recent Instagram post Lopez shared that featured her hair styled into two buns, with the singer’s baby hairs slicked down over her forehead in gentle whirls. The outlet, somewhat flatteringly, claimed this new look made Lopez look “like a teenager!”
Sure, Jennifer Lopez is in her 50’s, but why does that have to mean that certain hairstyles are off-limits for her? Need we all be reminded that we’re living through a global pandemic that has largely kept the population under self-quarantine in order to stop the deadly spread of Covid-19? Is this photo of Lopez showing off her figure in a bikini a sign of a midlife crisis?

If Lopez chooses to spend her time playing with her hair then uploading the admittedly gorgeous results online, who are we to judge her? Or suggest that it’s the symptom of a midlife crisis? Obviously the ongoing pandemic means a slow-down of celebrity news, but this story is scraping the bottom of the barrel and it shows. What an undeniably false story.
