Jennifer Lopez is keeping her fans in suspense with a new selfie that raises more questions than it answers. Late on Wednesday, J. Lo posted an image of herself with a black eye on Instagram.

The caption gives some hints as to how she got such a shiner, but the full story is still a mystery:

Sometimes work can be #shiner #blackeye #sufferforyourart#youshouldseetheotherguy #justkidding#nobodyhitme #imalovernotafighter#immafightertoo#youcantputmeinaboxbaby#okimdonewiththehashtags

The reference to "work" makes it seem like the black eye is related to some acting role—likely either Lopez's regular part on Shades of Blue, or her upcoming HBO role as drug lord Griselda Blanco. But it's not clear if the bruise is the result of a stunt gone wrong, or if it's just makeup.


We're hoping it's the latter—J. Lo's face is a national treasure, and should be protected.
