After the 'controversy' (if you even want to call it that) following the Super Bowl halftime show with Jennifer Lopez and Shakira, we're finally hearing from J Lo about her thoughts. Many viewers said the performance showed "too much skin" or was "too racy" for the younger audience.
Lopez told 'Variety' magazine, “I think that’s honestly silliness,” during Saturday’s Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica, Calif. The singer was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for the film Hustlers.
“Both of us are really respectful performers who are moms, who have kids, who are very conscious of what we do. We did a show that I believe was a celebration of women and our Latino culture that was really well received. And that small faction of people who want to be negative about it, it’s not something I can even let in because it was such an amazing night.”
“So many beautiful things came out of it and the message of standing up for yourself, being a women – that’s what I want to pass on to little girls – that’s what we want to say, you’re strong, you’re beautiful, everything about you, be proud of it,” said Lopez. “I’m very proud of the performance that night.”
Jennifer Lopez is Puerto Rican and Shakira is Colombian and Lebanese and it was the first time only Latin artists performed that Halftime show.
