Jennifer Lopez and Shakira promise a high-energy, groundbreaking performance during their upcoming Super Bowl halftime show.
During a press conference in Miami, Lopez said this will be the first time two Latinas headline the show, and “that statement alone to me is empowering. When I think of my daughter, when I think of all the little girls in the world, to be able to have that, to see that two Latinas are doing this in this country at this time, it’s just very empowering for us.”
The halftime show will include a tribute to late Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant, a friend of Lopez’s fiancé, Alex Rodriguez.
