Jenny might be from the block, but she doesn’t want to go back- at least not to film a car commercial. Inside Edition explains.

PAUL BOYD: “Meanwhile, JLo is catching some flack for this Fiat commercial that pays tribute to her Bronx upbringing.”
JENNIFER LOPEZ: “This is my world.”
PAUL BOYD: “Only problem is- she never shot one frame of the commercial in the Bronx. They used a body double when they shot in the New York borough. Whatever driving the superstar did herself took place in a studio in Los Angeles.”


But as The Sun asks, should we really be surprised?

“The endorsement deal has earned J-Lo millions of dollars and hinges on the Latino star's 'street cred'. But the singer hasn't made a public appearance in the Bronx for years.”

And CNN’s Ted Rowlands and Shannon Cook argue this was just another paycheck for the media mogul.

TED ROWLANDS: “And, you know, vague statements from both Fiat and Lopez’s reps basically back up the story. Lopez was too busy to jump on a plane and fly to New York and shoot this in the Bronx.”
SHANNON COOK: “Well, she’s a great actress, which we know, and she definitely shows it there.”


But The New York Times spoke with the blogger who broke the story, who says-- don’t knock J.Lo too hard- she’s still paying tribute to her roots.

“‘But maybe we should give her credit for trying to make that connection – the majority position is that people from that background don’t look back.’”

And a Carscoop blogger suggests the ads might not be paying off anyway.  

“The delayed launch and the lack of dealers mean that, despite initial interest, the car is not fulfilling the company’s sales (overly optimistic) forecast in the U.S. market.”

Finally, the LA Times says what a lot of people are probably thinking.

“…let’s get real here -- does anyone believe Lopez drives a $20,000 subcompact, even if it does have Tom-Tom?”
