Gloria will get you.
In her Netflix documentary Halftime, Lopez complained About the lack of time for the necessity of sharing the stage, calling it “the worst idea in the world”.
In response, she told Estefan Cohen that she was asked to join Lopez and Shakira at the Super Bowl stage but she declined the offer.
“Look, that’s the point. And Stefan explained that you have a little bit of time, like 12 minutes or something, to turn things on and off.” So, can you do that with one person? Yeah, but I think they wanted to throw on the Miami and Latin extravaganza, and they tried to pack it in as much as possible.”
And even though Estefan said women “killed him” and that it was a “cool show,” the “Rhythm Is Gonna Get You” singer took the opportunity to cast a little shadow on Lopez.
“Okay, and imagine what JLo would say if you were the third [performer]! ‘ said Stephen, rolling her eyes.
“I’m literally going out, I’m done” Come on and shake your body, “Get out!” Estefan joked, referring to the lyrics of the 1985 Miami Sound Machine song, “Conga!”
Estefan then added that she has performed in a few Super Bowls and that Lopez and Shakira’s show was their “moment” to shine.
“Plus, I didn’t want to go on a December diet,” Estefan said. “It’s Christmas!”
Lopez’s complaints about her Super Bowl performance in “Halftime” were not directed at Shakira but in the NFL.
Lopez manager Beni Medina shared his client’s frustration with the NFL’s selection for a joint performer.
“Usually, you have one major title in the Super Bowl. That major title builds a show, and if they choose to have other guests, that’s their choice,” According to Entertainment Weekly,. “It was an insult to say that you need two Latinas to do the job that one artist has historically done.”
