Alex Rodriguez On How ”Inspiring” Jennifer Lopez’s Super Bowl Performance Is
The world’s still reeling from the iconic Super Bowl halftime show that Shakira and Jennifer Lopez put on this weekend.
From the fabulous fashion, the surprise performances from Bad Bunny and J Balvin, the subtle but powerful political statements, J.Lo’s 11-year-old daughter’s rendition of “Born In the USA” by Bruce Springsteen, to the powerful homage to Latino culture on a global stage; last night’s halftime show performance was one for the books.
While the two weren’t the first Latinas to step on the stage for a Super Bowl halftime show performance—that was Cuban-American Gloria Estefan in 1992— it was still historic to see these two share the stage.
Ahead of the Super Bowl halftime show performance on Sunday, E!’s Jason Kennedycaught up with Alex Rodriguez. When asked what J. Lo and Shakira’s performance meant for women watching everywhere, the former MLB player said it was an “enormous moment.”
Rodriguez added, “First of all, with 60 million Latinos in the United States, it’s amazing. Representing all the Latino women, it’s really empowering… it’s about equality. It’s about so much. But it’s just inspiration because I know she inspires all of us and tonight will be no different.”
