Jennifer Lopez Calls Co-Headlining 2020 Super Bowl Halftime Show with Shakira the 'Worst Idea in the World'

Jennifer Lopez opens up about her experience co-headling the 2020 Super Bowl halftime show with Shakira in her new Netflix documentary, “Halftime,” and it’s safe to say J.Lo was not thrilled with the NFL’s idea of having two performers, specifically two Latinas, being forced to share the stage.

In the documentary, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival on Wednesday and hits Netflix next week, Lopez expressed her frustration over performing at the Super Bowl halftime show alongside Shakira, describing it as the “worst idea in the world.”

“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,” she explained. “But, there’s got to be certain songs that we sing, though. We have to have our singing moments. It’s not going to be a dance f—ing revue. We have to sing our message.”

Meanwhile, during an interview in the doc, the singer’s manager Benny Medina echoed Lopez’s thoughts of having two headliners instead of one solo performer, calling it an “insult.”
