Halftime performance good for Latina women

The “Hustlers” actress replied:

“It’s a perfect moment in my life, honestly, but it’s also a great time for a Latina women [sic] to take the stage at the biggest all-American event, with everything that’s going on in the country right now. I’m super-happy to represent my community, to represent women, and to represent everybody, you know?”

The star continued by explaining how the Super Bowl was a “big platform" that brought people together and received a lot of attention. She noted that it was an event where she could share some "love and positivity" and much more.


Lopez added that she saw her performance as a "blessing."


Lopez engaged & also stars in new movie

Besides her upcoming performance gig, Lopez had a very eventful 2019. In March 2019, her boyfriend Alex Rodriguez proposed.

She also created quite a buzz with the release of her new film “Hustlers.” However, she was snubbed for an Oscar nomination.


Singer’s Super Bowl performance confirmed in 2019

Lopez is set to headline the Super Bowl halftime show with Shakira, 42, in Miami, Florida on game day. The event is set to happen at the Hard Rock Stadium.


The news of the two singer’s involvement in the Super Bowl was announced on September 26, 2019. An image of the two stars together was shared by Lopez on her Instagram account confirming the news of their performance.

Before an official announcement was made about Lopez and Shakira’s gig, the latter played coy when asked about it. While promoting “Hustlers” during the month of September, she told Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest that a halftime performance was something that had been discussed for years.
