We are 10 years old!!! It is CRAZY to think that the site has been online for 10 years now.
To put it in perspective, back in 2002, Jennifer released J to the L O! The Remixes and This is Me...Then, Enough and Maid in Manhattan hit theaters, and her first perfume, Glow, was released! In the past 10 years, Jennifer has released 5 albums, 21 singles, 10 movies (not including What To Expect When You're Expecting, Ice Age, and Parker, which will all be released in the next 8 months), 19 perfumes, and a million other things! It's exciting to think about all that she has accomplished and how much we have accomplished, as well!
BB started as a message board dedicated to dozens of famous female celebrities, but Jennifer was always the star! After a few years, we changed gears and became a dedicated JLo fan forum. Over the years we grew and expanded into the #1 JLo fan community with a fansite, message board, and Twitter.
We've had over 125 million views, 1 million+ posts, tens of thousands of BBJLovers, thousands of dollars raised for charity (CHLA and BGCA), 4 successfully delivered fanbooks/online projects, a one on one interview with Queen JLo herself, and several exclusive opportunities for fans to get up close and personal with Jennifer! We've had an amazing run, and we can't wait to continue topping ourselves!
THANK YOU to all of the JLovers for visiting and hanging out with us for all of these years and to Jennifer and her team for supporting us throughout the years. Jennifer, you are a true inspiration.
Cheers to 10 more years!
