Jennifer Lopez turns 51 next month, yet her body is aging backwards.

The singer/actress couldn't help but show off her her world-famous curves on Saturday, stunning Instagram in an over-the-shoulder bathroom selfie as she rocked a pair of balloon-print leggings.

"Back at it and ready for the weekend. โ˜€๏ธ," Lopez captioned, tagging activewear brand Niyama Sol.

J-Lo's 124 million Instagram followers seemed to love the selfie, but she faced fire from her non-fans too.

The mid-summer showoff had J-Lo in a clean ponytail and her signature hoop earrings. She stood sideways in front of her bathtub, wearing a baby pink sports bra and some seriously tight leggings.

The pink-and-purple waistband sat at the small of her back, but the whimsical pattern of hot air balloons drew extra attention to her tremendously toned backside.

Almost 3.8 million likes were given out on J-Lo's June 23rd share.

The Instagram comments were packed with praise, but other parts of the internet had other things to say...see the backlash below.

"You always have the best leggings!" someone told the Super Bowl star.

"okay these are cute . & you're looking AMAZING mama ๐Ÿ”ฅ, another wrote.

"You seriously have the PERFECT body!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ God Bless you," a third fan commented.

Things were different over on The Daily Mail:

"Her obsession with her derriere is just ridiculous," a reader said.

"WHY???? Does this woman need this much attention all the time?" - a second asked.

Several others drew Kardashian-related comparisons:

"To think pre kardashian days every thought her bum was huge.."

"Always selling something like the K family! Zzzzz"

Switching it up, "Jenny From The Block" addressed a serious matter later on Saturday, sharing an Instagram video from the men's basketball team at Duke University. In her own caption, she added:

"#BlackLivesMatter โœŠ๐ŸปโœŠ๐ŸผโœŠ๐ŸฝโœŠ๐ŸพโœŠ๐Ÿฟ

We should be saying this every day. Itโ€™s not a political issue. Itโ€™s a human rights issue. Repost from @dukembb"

Just days before this (on June 19th), the "Selena" star encouraged fans to get involved with fighting racism:

"๐Ÿ“ข Letโ€™s take action: there is a link in my bio to sign a petition created by Opal Lee, a 93 year old woman from Texas, to make Juneteenth a national holiday."

"If the petition reaches its goal of 500K signatures," she noted, "they will work to have legislation update US code 36, which is the list of official US observances, to add Juneteenth."

As the new week began, Jennifer Lopez shared excitement over several business matters:

The singer spotlighted a special family member after plugging her JLO JENNIFER LOPEZ shoe collection from DSW, writing:

"So proud of my baby sister @lyndalopez08 on her first book!" - also including a "Swipe Up" link for easy purchasing.

J-Lo also promoted tomorrow's "World Of Dance" premiere on NBC, where she serves as both judge and executive producer.
