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.

Yes, Beyoncé Really Did Run Into Selena Quintanilla At A Mall Back In The Day

Part 2 of Netflix’s “Selena: The Series,” is currently streaming, which means fans of the late Tejano singer are getting a chance to learn more about her origin stories. In the second part of the series, fans can expect to see more of the icon’s tragically brief but beautifully successful life. The new episodes chronicle Selena Quintanilla’s rise as a superstar and will no doubt make fans of the singer feel a deep sense of love for her.

Particularly when it comes to one episode in particular!

Part 2’s episode 6, called “Lo Más Bello,” sees the lives of two superstars collide.

The endearing episode sees Selena, played by Christian Serratos, on a shopping trip to an outdoor mall with her mother and sister. It’s then that the young singer catches the eye of a young girl who is also with her mother and sister.

Perhaps it’s real seeing real, but in either case in this episode, the young girl stops to gaze at Selena. She’s star-struck. In the episode, the young girl’s mother asks who she’s looking at and the girl replies, “Selena, a famous singer. Be quiet!”

Knowing that her daughter is a singer herself, the mother encourages her to introduce herself. Of course, the young girl is too shy to say hello but she does wave.

When Selena walks away, the young girl’s mother reveals a fun twist when she says “Beyoncé Knowles, you better learn not to be afraid of people if you ever want to be famous too.”

Like we said…

Real recognizing real.

While it might seem like the producers took creative liberty, it turns out they actually didn’t. And it makes sense. Fans of Selena and Beyoncé know that the two singers are Texan-icons.

In a recent interview for MTV Trés, Beyoncé revealed that she actually did see Selena, in the Galleria Mall in Houston. “I didn’t say much to Selena because I wasn’t a celebrity,” Beyoncé said in an interview for MTV Trés back in the day. “I just saw her and said hello and kept it moving. Definitely growing up in Texas I heard her on the radio, and I think listening to her album, even though I didn’t know exactly what she was saying, it helped me in the studio with my pronunciation.”

Fans of the Texan starlets might also remember how Beyonce, in a 2007 interview with People en Español, spoke about her love of Selena.

At the time, Beyoncée was celebrating her re-release of six Spanish-language tracks. “I listened to Selena all the time” she recalled at the time of the interview. “She’s close to me because of where I’m from.”

Both “Selena: The Series” Parts 1 and 2 are streaming right now on Netflix! Check them out!
