Jennifer Coolidge just joined TikTok, and her first video has already gone viral thanks to her hilarious rendition of Jennifer Lopez’s “Jenny from the Block” music video.
Jennifer Coolidge is a pop culture icon. Although the actress has appeared in several films and TV series over the years, she got a second wind thanks to her award-winning role in the HBO show White Lotus.
She is now winning hearts on social media after joining TikTok in late January… and her humor makes loyal fans love her even more.
On January 20, Coolidge uploaded his first video to the platform in honor of Jennifer Lopez’s 2002 music video for her song “Jenny from the Block.”

Of course, both women share the same name, but the way Coolidge presents the song as a spoken word “poem” and her dramatic reading of the pop song drives viewers crazy.
It gets even better when Coolidge slowly pans the camera to reveal a confused Jennifer Lopez saying, “I like it. I really, really like it.”

Her unexpected collaboration with J-Lo was also a fun surprise for longtime Coolidge fans, who probably remember the actress’ unforgettable role as evil stepmother Hilary Duff in “The Cinderella Story” (“Dries are for the poor. Do you think J-Lo has brown lawn?’)
Fans were here to watch their video together and expressed their excitement about her upcoming videos in the comments section.
“I haven’t been this excited to see someone join TikTok since Leslie Jordan,” wrote one user.
“Only Jennifer Coolidge will be able to master it TikTok on her first TikTok,” said another.
However, others couldn’t help but write “mom” in all caps, declaring their undying love for one of TikTok’s nocturnal icons.
It’s unclear what will happen next with Coolidge’s TikTok content, but one thing’s for sure… fans are very happy to have her on the platform.
