Jennifer Lopez has always had quite a hard time proving her value because of her Latin roots. However, she has never stopped working and that's not it, JLo has also inspired other people. Keep reading to learn all the details!
Multi faceting JLo was honored last night at the E! People's Choice Awards because of her performances and movie material during the last two decades. A-Rod's fiancée has always worked very hard to accomplish what she wanted to, and getting the Icon Award is something that makes her feel even prouder since it is a recognition of your hard work. When receiving the prize, she went on stage and delivered an incredible speech as she always does.
When coming on stage to receive her award, the woman from the Bronx gave a tremendous and always inspirational speech. Before her award acceptance, the Latin diva was surprised by two videos by Renee Zellweger and Nicole Kidman. Zellweger actual words were '...If anybody told you why you shouldn't, you were already busy proving them wrong'.
Her twins: Max and Emme also appeared virtually to send their love to mom. JLo explained this year was obviously different and it made people reconsider things a lot; to think of what we want, and we don't, to see things from a different and true perspective basically. A-Rod's fiancée also explained 'As a Latina and as a woman, we have to work twice as hard to get the opportunities, sometimes my big dreams and my ambitions, it made the people around me nervous. '
You can't be an actress. You're an actress, what you want to sing? You're an artist, you won't be taken seriously as a businesswoman.' She addresses specially minority people in America, as she once was, saying 'The true measure is inspiring girls in all ages and all colors, from all over the world, to know you can do whatever want, as many things as you want and to be proud of who you are no matter where you come from. I want them to know your dreams are limited only by your imagination, determination and their willingness to never give up'.
Of course, those people were wrong, but it was simply because of her power, of her strength that she never stopped, she wanted to succeed and Lopez knew she had to work three or even more times harder than the rest. Thank you JLo for doing it! Thank you for not believing what people said! Thank you for getting so loud! You are an ageless icon for all of us!
