“This is happening.”
After rumors started swirling earlier this month that Jennifer Lopez would be this year’s Super Bowl halftime performer, the superstar took to Twitter on Thursday (Sept. 26) to confirm: “It’s happening.”
But she’s not going it alone: Fellow Latin music powerhouse Shakira will also be performing.
J.Lo’s tweet simply has the “It’s happening.” caption, plus the date of the 2020 Super Bowl, alongside a photo of Shakira wearing a gold Pepsi bicep cuff (shouting out the halftime show’s sponsor) and a massive two-finger ring with the 02.02.2020 date. Shakira, meanwhile, posted a photo of Lopez wearing a Pepsi ring and belt buckle in her “Get ready” tweet.
Jenn is listed on the World’s Highest-Paid Women In Music 2018. She ranks at #6, as she raked in $47M in the year of 2018.

Jennifer Lopez is sitting by the pool behind her Bel-Air mansion, waiting for two staffers to move an umbrella closer to her chair and thinking about how her life could have turned out very differently. She sends a quick text to boyfriend Alex Rodriguez, takes a sip of ice water, and sits still for a moment while a stylist applies a piece of double-stick tape to the plunging neckline of her Alexandre Vauthier dress so there will be no cleavage mishaps during a TV appearance later in the afternoon. Then Lopez reflects on how close she came to ending up as a bank teller in the Bronx.
“If I didn’t have certain ambitions, I might have gotten married after high school and had kids and decided to get a job at a bank in Castle Hill, like my aunt did,” says the New York native. “It’s just that I had dreams and ideas that were different.”
Lopez, who turns 50 in July, has been pondering her life path a lot lately. It’s partly because in her new movie, Second Act, she plays a character whom she describes as “soooo me” — an outer-borough girl with no connections and no college degree who suddenly finds herself across the river in Manhattan, navigating a world of glamour and power and Madison Avenue shopping sprees. It’s also because Lopez, after almost three decades of relentlessly public highs and lows, now understands herself better than she used to. A mother of 10-year-old twins (with ex-husband Marc Anthony) who meditates daily while juggling the jobs of actor, singer, Vegas performer, producer, reality-show judge, etc., etc., she has developed the kind of confidence that makes it easier to talk about her insecurities. Shortly after her breakout film, Selena, came out in 1997, Lopez remembers, she was speaking with a cousin whom she has known since she was young. “He said that whenever he saw me on TV or in movies, he thought, ‘She’s scared, but she’s doing it anyway.’ And he was absolutely right — I was terrified. But I really wanted to try. I wanted to do it.”

Angela Missoni has always been passionate about supporting other women, whether that’s meant fostering talent at her family’s heritage knitwear brand, taking a stand against the patriarchy with last season’s must-have pink pussy hats, or supporting a variety of women-focused charities. With her latest project, you can get involved just by picking up some new Missoni merch: For the entire month of October (which also happens to be Breast Cancer Awareness Month), a special $35 T-shirt she designed for Saks Fifth Avenue’s Key to the Cure Charity will be available in all Saks locations in the U.S. and Canada, as well as online, with 100 percent of proceeds going to 12 local cancer charities, among them American Cancer Society, Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and TGen Foundation.
“At Missoni, we’ve worked with Saks for so long, so I’ve always known about its Key to the Cure [initiatives],” Missoni tells Vogue. “We’ve supported women’s cancer causes in Italy as a family for many, many years, and we’re sensitive about the subject. Besides the fact that my mother, my daughter, and I are very involved in any kind of women’s [aid], the fashion industry is mainly based on women, too. It had been a long time since we did something in New York, and I’m celebrating 20 years as the creative director at Missoni this year, so supporting this cause was the perfect way to celebrate my anniversary.”
Jennifer Lopez, who set up her own cancer foundation in 2009, is the ambassador for the project and appears in the campaign image here. “Jennifer has a very strong voice,” Missoni adds. “Together with Saks and my family, we think when you have a strong voice, you have to use it for good causes.”
Jennifer Lopez is back! And she is not here to play. She released her newest single, Ni Tun Ni Yo, which features Gente De Zona. This is the first single off her upcoming spanish album, which will be executive produced by Marc Anthony! Check out the song and video below.
Hillary Clinton took to the stage with Jennifer Lopez in Miami late Saturday when the music superstar performed a free concert in the rain to encourage early voting in the battleground state of Florida.
The 47-year-old actress, singer and dancer whose toned physique appeared to defy gravity, powered through some of her greatest hits, including “Let’s Get Loud” and “On the Floor” before an exuberant crowd who cheered and danced as rain drenched the outdoor amphitheater.
Clinton arrived for the last segment of the gig, after Lopez’s ex-husband, Marc Anthony, had already performed. She enveloped Lopez in a bear hug, before thanking the former couple for their support.
The concert capped a day of campaigning in Florida for the Democrat nominee after America’s top cop, FBI Director James Comey renewed his probe of her emails and her lead over Donald Trump narrowed.
