Jennifer Lopez and Ja Rule Had Us All Fooled

Are you ready to have your minds officially blown? Nearly 15 years later and music lovers have finally realized that they have been messing up THIS one line from Jennifer Lopez and Ja Rule’s 2001 smash hit, “I’m Real.” Yesterday, the Internet went insane when the website Jezebel released an article, clarifying once and for all that the answer to Ja Rule’s opening liner of, “What’s my *bleep* name,” had actually been answered in the song by Lopez herself.

She is not answering his question by rhetorically asking “Are You Ellie?” as our listening ears believed at one point in time. Instead, she was actually belting out the letters to spell his exact name, “R-U-L-E.” Ugh, just when we thought we had it all figured out. I hate to say it, but I personally feel that we have all been unknowingly participating in an episode of “Punk’d” all of these years.

To satisfy your nostalgia, take a listen for yourself.

Isn’t it crazy that J. Lo literally looks the exact same?! I need to start drinking from her fountain of youth to preserve my sexy too!
