The year of Jennifer Lopez was seen yesterday at the 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards. The iconic singer, 52, was on hand to receive the Generation Award, and stunned everyone with a form fitting black dress with a plunging neckline and leather bodice.
This Friday (June 3), MTV announced that J.Lo would receive the Generation Award, saying that the honor “celebrates beloved actors whose diverse contributions to both film and television have turned them into household names.” Previous recipients include Scarlett Johansson, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Will Smith, Reese Witherspoon, Robert Downey, Jr., Mark Wahlberg, Sandra Bullock, Jamie Foxx, Johnny Depp, Ben Stiller, Tom Cruise and the entire Fast & Furious franchise.
“I want to thank all the people who gave me this life. I want to thank the people who gave me joy, and the ones who broke my heart,” Jennifer said while accepting her golden popcorn for the award. “The ones who were true, and the ones who lied to me,” sthihe elaborated. “I want to thank true love, and I want to thank the way that I lied to myself, because that’s how I knew that I had to grow.”
“I want to thank all the people who told me, to my face — or, when I wasn’t in the room — that I couldn’t do this,” She added while choking up. “I really don’t think I could’ve done it without you. And I know I couldn’t have done it without the fans who saw the movies. You are the reason that I am here and that I have been here, and I love you,” she said, concluding her powerful emotional statement. A victorious night for J-Lo, she also won the award for Best Song for the tune “On My Way” from her movie Marry Me.
