ACTRESS JENNIFER LOPEZ AND PUFF DADDY ATTEND WORLD SERIES GAME

Jennifer Lopez Will Perform In The Bronx For The 1st Time In Her 15-Year Career


(AllHipHop News) In 2002 Jennifer Lopez informed the world that she was still “Jenny From The Block” and 12 years later she finally proves it. Today (May 14th) it was announced that Jennifer Lopez will put on a free concert in her home borough of the Bronx as apart of State Farm Neighborhood Sessions.

Loepz has performed numerous times in New York City, however this will mark her first ever concert performance in her home borough of The Bronx in her 15 year music career. The concert will take place at Orchard Beach in Pelham Bay Park, an area the American Idol judge shares memories of:

I’m humbled and honored to be doing my first ever concert in the Bronx. I can’t wait to go back home and give a show to the people and community that inspired me.  Of all the summer days I spent in Orchard Beach, this is going to be one to remember!

Jennifer Lopez’s relationship with her home borough has been complicated of the past few years. Back in 2010, after Lopez acquired a $12 million contract to be a guest on American Idol, the principal of a Bronx school she attended, Holy Family School accused the singer of not giving back to her old neighborhood. The principal, Claire La Tempa even recalled an instance when Lopez’s mother and former Holy Family School teacher Guadalupe Rodriguez informed her as to why Lopez would not provide a scholarship at the school’s request:

When Jennifer became famous, I asked Lupe if Jennifer could donate a scholarship in her name, and Lupe just said, ‘Uh-uh! That’s her money and that’s it.’

Bronx residents will have a 24-hours “pre-sale” before the tickets go on sale for the general public tomorrow (May 15th). Check State Farm Neighborhood Sessions for more information.

  • Did the school give Jenny a free education? or did she have to pay like everyone else?
    GTFOH! With that…if anything, she owes mom dukes for paying her way…or whomever did.

    Grand Puba & Remy ma went to Stevenson, along with Kid Capri?, Treston from Hi Five, Krs One, Just Ice, etc…

    Let the school start holding a lottery for local students, then after they GIVE back a few times, ask the Alumni who benefited, to give back.

    WTF? “Lucky Kids” sold Jenny her fist play microphone…..they want 10% of her earnings too?

    Jenny could have been came back……just not with Puffy!
