The Super Bowl is here, aka the day that you and your friends gather round to watch America's most beloved sporting event: the halftime show. Jennifer Lopez and Shakira joined forces this year and, as expected, it. Was. Spectacular. Like, who needs football when you have the display of athleticism that is Shakira's hips?
Anyway, if for some horrifying reason you missed out on this legendary performance, please watch it here:
As a reminder, J.Lo and Shakira didn't make any money for this performance, because NFL actually never pays artists for the halftime show—though they do pay for production costs which are pretty steep. As an NFL spokesperson explained to Forbes, "We do not pay the artists. We cover expenses and production costs." Before you flip the f*ck out at this injustice of it all, apparently performers can expect their music sales to have a major spike thanks to the Super Bowl, so the NFL kinda views the performance as free advertising.
Either way, J.Lo was super pumped about performing, saying in a press release, "Ever since I saw Diana Ross fly off into the sky at the Halftime Show, I dreamed of performing at the Super Bowl. And now it's made even more special not only because it's the NFL's 100th anniversary, but also because I am performing with a fellow Latina. I can't wait to show what us girls can do on the world's biggest stage."
