You've Been Saying J. Lo's "I'm Real" Intro Wrong All These Years

- Page 1

Alright, so let's take a trip down memory lane to the year 2001.

Times were much simpler back then, but that doesn't mean that it was boring, especially from a pop culture standpoint.

So many things happened that year, including the release of the first Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Dreamworks introduced us to Shrek, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake were the "It" couple, and most importantly Jennifer Lopez a.k.a. Jenny from the Block a.k.a J.Lo, released her second album titled J.Lo.


The album, which included songs that dealt with themes of love, sex, and empowerment, gave us some of the Latina artists's biggest hits, like "Love Don't Cost A Thing" and "I'm Real."

J.Lo recorded a remix version of "I'm Real" featuring rapper Ja Rule, and it was such a huge it.

Even if you were going through your emo phase, and weren't really into pop and hip-hop, you still couldn't help but bop your head a little whenever this song came on the radio.


Today, the song is still just as good, and most of us probably still know every lyric, from beginning to end like it was the summer of '01, or so we thought.

Jezebel published an article a while ago in which the author drew our attention to J.Lo's first line in the song. It turns out, we've all been getting it wrong all these years.

With such an impressive cast, you'd expect a guaranteed hit, but it received mixed reviews.

Founder Of Toys 'R' Us, Charles Lazarus, Has Passed Away At 94

Going to Toys 'R' Us was literally the highlight of our childhood. Each and everyone of us would run through those sliding doors and would immediately turn into little Tasmanian devils and tear through the store as though we had no knowledge of manners. The reason that we got to enjoy this epic experience was because of Charles Lazarus. Lazarus founded his company in 1948 and every since he has watched his company grow. That is, until this week. The first toy store he opened was not called Toys 'R' Us, but instead "Children's Bargain Town." He knew that the


The Trailer For The Mr. Rogers Documentary Has Been Released And It's Absolutely Heartwarming

Few things are as sacred as Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. The classic PBS children's show was on for 31 seasons, and even though it hasn't been filmed since 2001, it's still beloved to this day. Fred Rogers hosted the show with a kindness that can best be described as neighborly - at least that's what I think he would want to be described as. He was sweet, caring, and honest with his viewers, teaching them all the things they needed to learn.Every show started with the same song, while Rogers pulled on a cozy cardigan and asked us all if
