Jennifer Lopez wants to “bring everybody together” with her Super Bowl half time show.
The 50-year-old superstar will headline the coveted slot at the NFL flagship game in Miami, Florida, in February alongside Shakira, and the two singers want to highlight their “specific and beautiful” Latino culture with their performance.
“That night, I want it to be a celebration of who we are.”— Jennifer Lopez
Speaking to Robert Pattinson for Variety’s Actors on Actors series, she said: “I’m putting it together now. Me and Shakira together. We’re both excited to have been given the opportunity to do that, as two Latin women, in Miami.
“I think it’s important in this day and age for two Latin women to be standing on that stage — when Latinos are being treated a certain way in this country, or looked at a certain way — to show that we have a really specific and beautiful culture and worth and value, and we bring something to this country that’s necessary.
That night, I want it to be a celebration of who we are. All of us, because we’re in this together. That’s how I feel. I want to bring everybody together in that moment.”
The On The Floor hitmaker recently said that she wants to make a “beautiful” and “fun” show.
