Lopez was unsatisfied with the splitting of the Super Bowl show
It was announced in a statement that Lopez and Shakira would split their 14-minute halftime performance evenly between the two, singing a medley of their major hits during the performance.
Lopez was also frustrated behind the scenes about the time constraints that she was subject to during the performance, while it was an honor for her to perform with Shakira on a national stage.
Lopez and Shakira are on the phone discussing the Super Bowl during the scene. “They should have given us 20 minutes if it was going to be a double headliner,” Lopez tells Shakira.
It is also noticeable that Lopez becomes frustrated by the time constraints when she is prepping the show with her music director. Lopez was also seen becoming frustrated over the time limits when she was preparing the show with her music director.
It was the worst idea that could have ever been thought of to have two people in charge of the Super Bowl. In addition to talking on the phone with Ricky Kirshner, an NFL producer, with just a couple of seconds left before the finale, she was captured on video talking before the show, saying that the finale is not just going to be a minute.
Tabloid coverage of Jennifer Lopez hurt her self-esteem
During the documentary, Lopez recounts some particularly harrowing and often racist media coverage in the 2000s that revolved around her, her body, and her personal life, including her relationship with Ben Affleck.
She has said that it made me question my acting, singing, and dancing abilities, adding, “I just believed what they said, which was that I wasn’t any good.”. In an interview with the New York Times, she described the relationship with the media as “a very abusive and dysfunctional one.”
