Video Vanguard Honoree Jennifer Lopez And A-Rod’s Love For Her Slayed The 2018 MTV VMAs

Last night’s 2018 MTV Video Music Awards was all the more exciting and relevant because of Jennifer Lopez. She owned the show and it’s not just because she accepted Video Vanguard Award, but because of her legacy.

Let’s break down how the Bronx queen slayed this year’s MTV award show.

J.Lo showed up on the red-carpet in a spectacular silver gown.

Her long blond hair and glitzy dress reminded us a lot of Dontella Versace, which is fitting because it was a Versace gown.

As Vogue notes, the dress is inspired by the Spring 2018 Gianni Versace tribute collection, however, J.Lo’s “dress appeared to be custom-made for the star.”

And of course she arrived with her hot date, Alex Rodriguez.

A-Rod makes some very nice arm candy, tbh.

He even took the role of Instagram husband very seriously and took all of the photos.

Get you a man who will do anything to get you that perfect shot.

She was also accompanied by her adorable children who had fangirl moments all their own.

Who wouldn’t be excited to meet the one and only Camila Cabello?

But the real show is when J.Lo came out for her Video Vanguard Award performance.

She 👏🏾 was 👏🏾 everything. 👏🏾

Even A-Rod couldn’t believe that performance J.Lo was giving.

He looks like someone who is really in love and so proud of their partner.

The iconic singer is the first Latina to be awarded the Video Vanguard Award.

She made history. Previous recipients include: David Bowie, Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Beyonce, U2, Rihanna and more great artist, like J.Lo.

Her 10-minute medley performance featured a ton of our favorite J.Lo hits.

She performed bits of “Waiting for Tonight,” “Get On the Floor,” “Booty,” “Love Don’t Cost A Thing,” “Get Right,” “I’m Real” and “Dinero.”

Everyone from her mom to Cabello, and Cardi B were getting down to J.Lo.

The magic of her performance literally oozed out of our televisions and computers.

Of course Ja Rule made an appearance for “I’m Real” because how could you not?

This performance gave the audience so much life.

But the sweetest part was when J.Lo gave her speech and got deep about A-Rod.

Look ar her “macho” getting all sentimental as she showers him with love and praise. Every powerful woman needs a man behind her to support her.

“I grew up on MTV and this is really a tremendous honor for me,” J.Lo said in her speech.

“It has been an incredible journey of dreaming my wildest dreams and then watching them come true,” J.Lo told the audience. “Music, acting and performing, this career has always been an obsession for me. I always had it in my mind, I was always the person like, ‘Why not?…I was obsessed like that, and I like it that way for a while, just working and working a working.”

Tissue, we need tissue.

Whitney Houston’s Estate Released Images Of Her Hologram And Basically It’s As Scary As Seeing La Llorona

Last year when the world learned that the estate of the later singer Whitney Houston planned to send her hologram on your, there was a mass of objections and outcries. Now that a sneak peek of the tour has been released, fans have dug in their heels.

“An Evening With Whitney : The Whitney Houston Hologram Tour” will begin on February 25 in the UK.

While Houston’s death occurred eight years ago, her estate has decided to bring her back to life for fans by giving her a new tour experience. According to The New York Post, “‘An Evening With Whitney’ was designed with Whitney’s image in mind, Pat Houston, the singer’s former manager and head of the Whitney Houston estate, said. Whitney planned on giving a more intimate, unplugged-esque tour before she died. And while that never took place when she was alive, the production team behind the hologram has ensured her vision will happen posthumously.”

“We had a discussion about her doing ‘Whitney Unplugged’ or some type of ‘Evening with Whitney,’ and that was really her idea,” Pat Houston said according to the Post. “It’s a dream that was realized by her. So that’s the production. This isn’t something that we’re just putting together. This is something that she wanted to do, and I get very emotional watching this because it is so close to what she wanted. The only thing missing was her, physically.”

Whitney fans have taken to Twitter to voice their horror over the hologram which, in all honesty, is alarming to see at first.

Literally so many fans have been left speechless.

And so many of u shave too many questions.
