J.Lo Reminds Us There Are Better Ways To Reflect on Your Ex [Photos]
Over the weekend recent divorcee and celebrity J.Lo paid tribute to her past loves during her Connecticut concert. Whilst singing her song “Until It Beats No More”, J.Lo look alike and Diddy, Ben Affleck, and Marc Anthony doppelgangers also took stage. As the singer described to the crowd, “let’s take a trip down memory lane”, she began to cry.
What a loony. This is why even Dr. Phil says no one can be friends with their exs. I’d like to parade my bad boyfriends around a stage too J.Lo, but it’s called social skills and I want you to reevaluate yours. Now I understand being a celebrity gets you a lot of leeway with this rule, I know Taylor Swift and Adele enjoy this privilege, so I shouldn’t be surprised.
But ladies, lets not make this a common pattern. I say we take Samantha from Sex and The City’s approach; “Honey when I’m done with them, I’m done with them.” Some ideas of how to better reflect on an ex include:
Remembering both good and bad times, equally.
The equal is vital. If you get too wrapped up in the good, drunk-crying phone calls get made. But if you get wrapped up in the bad, you end up plastering your most recent ex-boyfriend’s car in CVS-brand maxi pads. Trust me on this one.
Karma is real.
You don’t want your former talking sh*t about you? So don’t do the same to them! I know it’s hard and in your close-knit group of friends it’s always excused, but just remember that what you put out comes back. So if you spend your entire Halloween telling his frat brothers how small his friend is, expect retaliation.
When in doubt, put on some Beyonce.
I don’t care about your age, your gender or your music taste. When you’re feeling that awkward confusion about an ex; “should I call you to tell you I hate you?” or “am I still in love with you?”, get to your nearest music source and play a lot of Beyonce. Something spiritual will happen friends, I can’t explain it but just know it will fix everything. Because when does she not?
