1. The response to the 2020 Super Bowl show starring Jennifer Lopez and Shakira was a completely positive one, with the removal of people who were hurt by shaking their butts.
However, one person who was not completely impressed with the break show before the game was J.Lo.
In an upcoming Netflix documentary, Half the time(June 14) About his career, the Super Bowl LIV midfield show is widely covered and shows that Lopez had several problems with the NFL.
To begin with, Lopez was frustrated that he could not have the concert for himself.
“The worst idea in the world is for two people to play Super Bowl,” Lopez told his music director. “It was the worst idea in the world.”
Much of Lopez’s frustration was the time constraints of having to do the show with another performer.
“We have six f —— minutes. We have 30 seconds of a song, and if we take a minute, that’s all, we have five left, ”said Lopez. “But there have to be some songs that we sing, anyway. We need to have our singing moments. It will not be a dance f —— review. We have to sing our message. ”
Lopez’s manager, Benny Medina, also expressed his disappointment in the documentary because his client had to share the focus with another performer.
“You usually have a headline in a Super Bowl,” Medina said. “This catalog builds a show, and if they choose to have other guests, that’s their chance. It was an insult to say that you need two Latinos to do the work that an artist has historically done. ”
“If it was a double door, they would have given us 20 minutes,” Lopez said in the documentary. “That’s what f —— had to do.”
The singer / actor / dancer also struggled with the NFL as part of a children’s cage break show. When the NFL learned of this the night before the Super Bowl, Lopez was asked to remove the cages.
“We left the rehearsal and I noticed that everyone was scared, but I don’t know why,” Lopez says. “I get a call from Benny, and he said, ‘They want to get out of the cages.’
In a strange loss to the NFL, Lopez refused to pull the cage and showed it the way he wanted, except to do it alone.

3. Draymond Green, after a wild game against the Celtics last night, made it clear that he will be doing a podcast after the game no matter what. I know fans go back to hotel rooms after a game, put on pajamas, drink a glass of milk, and watch a bit of Netflix before bed. Newsflash: They don’t. Some players play video games all night, some players go to a restaurant, some players go to the gentlemen’s club, and so on.
So let Green work on making a podcast after a game. Not a big deal.
