Since discovering the account — which, unlike regular folks’ Linkedin profiles, features the prefix ‘The’ before her patented nickname in the URL — fans can not get over the fact that the 51-year-old ‘On The Floor’ singer feels the need to market herself on a corporate social media platform.
“Actor, Entertainer, Producer, Founder, Investor & Owner,” part of her tagline reads, concluding with, “My vision is to always entertain, empower and inspire through my work.”
Originally uncovered by Twitter user Sarah Cooper over the weekend, Lopez’s ‘About’ section reads: “I’m a mom, partner, actor, singer, film & television producer, fashion designer, bestselling author, entrepreneur, and humanitarian. (Say that 3 times fast!)
“I recently performed at the Super Bowl LIV Half Time Show. I’m a judge and executive producer on NBC’s “World of Dance”. Welcome!”
A simple “Why?” is the question on everybody’s lips — Lopez is so famous that she made a music video dedicated to wanting the paparazzi to leave her alone, so is she of the belief that the corporate world is unaware of her professional achievements?
“Why does JLo need a LinkedIn? She’s JLO. Her bio should just say ‘I’m JLo,'” Cooper wrote on Twitter, alongside a screenshot of JLo’s LinkedIn profile.
“I bet she still gets spammed by recruiters with marketing roles in her area for which she has relevant experience,” one Twitter user replied to Cooper.
Lopez has a competitive résumé, to say the least.
Listed in her experience section is ‘Entertainer’, which she has been for 22 years, alongside ‘Producer’.
Per LinkedIn, she has been an actor for 35 years, and a director for three years — having directed the music video for ‘Limitless,’ a tune from her film Second Act, which also starred Vanessa Hudgens.
Lopez is also the author of her 2014 memoir True Love, and the chairwoman, creative director and co-founder of BRX Holdings, an initiative she started with her ex-fiancé Alex Rodriguez.
The mogul founded JLo Beauty earlier this year, and is also the Co-founder and CEO of Nuyorican Productions.
