The "Maid In Manhattan" star further revealed that every character she played in a movie reflected some parts of her as she believed that a person could not "create truth" without living through it.

Her gratitude knew no bounds as she thanked those who gave her joy and "this life" while also crediting those who broke her heart, told her lies, and the truthful ones.

She did not leave out "true love" in her appreciation speech, including that from her 14-year-old kids, Maximilian and Emme, who taught her how to love. 

Despite constantly experiencing "disappointment and failure," the "Selena" star appreciated the experience as it strengthened her, and she went on to thank the haters who never believed in her.

The "Out of Sight" actress concluded before leaving the stage, "And Ben and everybody at home, wait for me to have dinner. I'll be home by seven."

JLo's performance with the brilliant superstar, Shakira at the 2020 Super Bowl Halftime, was not totally liked by the "On the 6" musician, which she made known via her Netflix documentary "Halftime."

The Blast recently reported that the show garnered mixed reactions from viewers despite its success; some appreciated the program, and others were not so supportive.

According to CNN, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) received over a thousand complaints about the presentation.

While some believed the show was "inappropriate, especially for children," others complained about "The Cell" actress's revealing dress and dancing on a pole.

Although JLo had her objections about the performance, hers was different from the viewers as she felt that sharing the stage with Shakira was the worst idea in the world.

There was no bad blood between the two musicians, but "The Wedding Planner" actress noted that the specified timing of twelve minutes for the performances was not enough to put their songs across.

As the outlet noted, the halftime program eventually ran for nearly fourteen minutes, giving the singing pair seven minutes each, which JLo argued should have been ten minutes individually for a better show.
