Alpha Female: Jennifer Lopez

Yeah, I did my thing, don't hate...
Yeah, I did my thing, don't hate...

This is going to be a short one, because it’s all written in stone already.

This is a woman who is a dancer.  A dancer. She started out on In Living Color, landed a plum movie role in Selena to show off her acting, that pushed her to more movie roles, and singing, music, and more dancing.  She is still one of the top 3 Hispanic actresses in Hollywood next to Penelope Cruz and Salma Hayek.   Lopez managed to get way to the top and she didn’t do it with lots of school training to say the least.  She did it with forming “relationships” early on whether they were standing or laying down we still don’t know, but do we care?  This is a woman who was not afraid to use her sexuality and power over men.  Very well aware of her sensuality. She hooked herself up to several wagons to raise her profile and skipped the side streets to fame.

She also had a tremendous vision for her life, strong commitment and faith in her self that she often brings up in magazine interviews.  She says that she always saw her life this way.  And if you’ve seen her transformation from the fatty faced girl in Selena days to the svelte, chiseled features and diva style she has now it’s something only an alpha female could orchestrate in a very short amount of time (and a few million helps too).

Oh, and about the husbands.  Sometimes, it takes an alpha female a few times to get it right.   One thing Lopez always wanted was a family, she got one, and now I guess she’s moving on–again.

So, I nominate her for the Alphanista Hall of Fame.  Yay or nay?

    I think I have to agree with Sub”verse”sive, J-Lo’s got looks, talent and booty to spare, but I thought an alphanista was a woman who used her wit, knowledge, education and skills to get ahead without leaving a trail of gossip about who you screwed to get to your position. Of course all successful women will have haters who spend their time gossiping about them, but more often than not, it’s just straight-up hating because that woman has achieved something that they haven’t been able to. I believe some will think my comments could this be considered hating simply because I disagree. Thin line huh??? Point is, her ablity to move from In Living Color to J-Lo the superstar is amazing and deserves praise, but I can’t honestly respect a woman that slept (ahem, I’m sorry, networked) her way to her position. My idea of alphanista’s are women I can pattern myself after, learn from and gain valuable knowledge on how to make those traits work for me and my situation and sleeping with a man (or a few men) to get to walk the red carpet or make millions is not how I want to do it. I say nay.

    Jennifer Lopez is an alpha female to me. She is a savvy business woman, who even though she may have made some questionable “transactions,” she stayed relevant and kept it sexy. I admire her for her sexiness, actually- as glamorous as she is, her sex appeal is very animalistic and raw ( kind of like Angelina Jolie’s). Plus, in a uberfeminist world, I admire her for being a woman who just plain ol’ loves everything about men and knows she needs one in her life for her own happiness- and being unapologetic about it. Even though I’ve heard about her and Marc Anthony’s marriage being over,( is it a rumor or are the two of them just faking the funk for the kid’s sake) I think she will marry a fourth time and get it right. Her and Marc seem like a perfect match but who knows.

    I just admire her for being lustful, passionate, sometimes a little greedy, extravagant and arrogant. You just don’t know what she is going to do next; yeah, she’s an alpha.
