Jennifer Lopez Facing Backlash For Referring To Herself As A ‘Black Girl’ 

Jennifer Lopez Facing Backlash For Referring To Herself As A ‘Black Girl’ 

Jenny from the block is facing some criticism!

Some people didn’t react too well to Jennifer Lopez’s new song, “Lonely.” In one of the parts, J-Lo refers to herself as a “black girl from the Bronx.” The lyrics are sung in Spanish, J-Lo sings, “Siempre serás tu negrita del Bronx,” which translates to, “I’ll always be your Black girl from the Bronx.”

J-Lo faced backlash back in 2001 on her track “I’m Real.” Some people were upset she used the N-word. She sings,

“Now people screaming “what the deal with you and so-and-so?

I tell ’em n*ggas mind their biz but they don’t hear me though.”
