June 14, 2022
In a new documentary,Halftime that will be out on the 14th of June 2022,Jennifer Lopez discussed the 2020 Super Bowl Halftime show.
She called it the “worst idea in the world ” and it had nothing to do with her co-headliner,Shakira but the timing provided for them.
In one of the scenes, she told her music director, Kim Burse:“we have six f***ing minutes. We have 30 seconds of a song, and if we take a minute, that’s it, we’ve got five left.”
“This is the worst idea in the world to have two people do the Super Bowl,” she says. “It was the worst idea in the world.”
Her manager of over 20 years, Benny Medina said:
“Typically, you have one headliner at a Super Bowl. That headliner constructs a show, and, should they choose to have other guests, that’s their choice. It was an insult to say you needed two Latinas to do the job that one artist historically has done.”
“I know that the Super Bowl people want us to be weaved throughout the show. I haven’t had a confirmation about how many minutes I’m going to have,” Shakira says.
“They said 12 minutes. I got kind of a good confirmation that we could have an extra minute or two, so now we’re at, like, 13, 14 minutes,” says Lopez. “I think, Shakira, what we should have is you should have half the time and I should [have half].”
“If it was going to be a double-headliner, they should have given us 20 minutes. That’s what they should’ve f***ing done.”
Well,they were able to make the most of it and gave us a performance we will never forget.
