We like looking at pictures of Jennifer Lopez as much as the next person, unless that next person is Google. Which isn't a person, on reflection. 

Anyway, that's not the point, the real point is that Jennifer Lopez is the person responsible for Google image search, and you should thank her every day for that fact with some form of sacrificial offering of whatever magic potion she's using to look better now than she did 20 years ago.

In a recent interview, Google's executive chairman Eric Schmidt revealed that J Lo was the reason the company came up with the image search idea in the first place, as they were inundated with requests to see pictures of her in the Versace dress she wore to the Grammy Awards in 2000. 

According to Schmidt, "people wanted more than just text. This first became apparent after the 2000 Grammy Awards, where Jennifer Lopez wore a green dress that, well, caught the world's attention. At the time, it was the most popular search query we had ever seen. But we had no sure-fire way of getting users exactly what they wanted: JLo wearing that dress. Google Image Search was born". 

Any doubts that you have may have had regarding J Lo being a powerful force for good in this world should now be gone. All hail Queen Lopez.
