"Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got."
With just one TikTok, Jennifer Coolidge has amassed more than 1.7 million views (as of this report) and taken the platform by storm. But what a TikTok!
While we’d have been just as satisfied to enjoy some classic Coolidge stream-of-consciousness rambling like we got twice at this year’s Golden Globe Awards, this was a tight, concise comic masterpiece.

“The White Lotus” star then took a moment to get into character before offering up a dramatic reading of a few lines from Jennifer Lopez’ “Jenny from the Block.”

“I like that,” Lopez tells her softly with mock intensity. “I really, really like that.”

Now that Coolidge is starting her music career — because we see no other way to interpret this incredible collaboration — we are ready to dub her J.Cool to go with J.Lo.

It’s no surprise that Coolidge — ahem — J.Cool would take TikTok by storm. She’s become America’s sweetheart these past few years, delighting fans with every utterance.
Here’s hoping she enjoyed the experience of putting this one together and plans to stick with the platform, because the world needs more freeform (or scripted) J.Cool in our lives!
