Why Jennifer Lopez and Shakira weren't paid for Super Bowl 2020 performance

Why Jennifer Lopez and Shakira weren't paid for Super Bowl 2020 performance

SHAKIRA-the iconic, Colombian singer-songwriter and multi-GRAMMY® award winner-is drawing rave reviews for her electrifying and history-making live performance last night at Super Bowl LIV, the biggest sporting event on the planet.

Ironically, the Latino community, of which both Shakira and JLo proudly consider themselves members of, felt the performances were too suggestive more than the general public.

Many in the comments agreed with the evangelist, while others disagreed. Some wanted the women to cover up - because their children were watching, or they were uncomfortable with the suggestive camera angles, or for a myriad of reasons that had more to with their own insecurities than anything else. The 50-year-old singer is mother to twins Max and Emme while the former New York Yankees star has two daughters, Ella and Natasha.

Over on Lopez's end, the pop titan showed out for her culture by representing Puerto Rico with a cape that turned into a flag.

Jennifer, however, was certainly all glammed up for Super Bowl on Sunday. She was also joined by J Balvin and Bad Bunny for the hits-filled set.

Shakira was also sure to include an array of cultural references when she took the stage with her dancing styles and use of expressions.

The little woman with the incredible voice led a chorus of young women to sing her mom's hit tune "Let's Get Loud" and "Born in the U.S.", as Shakira played the drums close by.

"I don't think we were trying to be heavy-handed with anything", Tabitha told BuzzFeed News about the performance's messaging on Monday. Instead, according to Forbes, they will be paid "union scale" - like other artists who have performed at the Super Bowl in previous years.

The Bronx bombshell entered on a sculpture of the Empire State Building while performing her 1996 hit "Jenny From the Block". If that's not an inspiration, then I don't know what is.
