Jennifer Lopez has proved to be a strong, powerful, hard working woman. Raised in The Bronx life didn't seem to put an easy path for JLO to achieve all she always dreamed about. But her talent, dedication, and hard work made her become one of the most recognized singers, actresses, dancers, and entrepreneurs of all times. The People's Choice Awards awarded her with a very well deserved People's Icon Award.
In her moving acceptance speech, she reflected on her storied career and the hurdles she faced "as a Latina and as a woman," concluding that "the true measure [of success] is inspiring girls in all ages and all colors, from all over the world, to know you can do whatever want, as many things as you want and to be proud of who you are no matter where you come from."
To accept the award, Lopez wore a gorgeous flouncy red mini dress by Christian Siriano.
Jennifer was moved to tears as she accepted the People's Icon Award.
She started her speech "Man, 2020 was no joke, right? I mean, before 2020 we were obsessing about winning this award or getting nominated for that award, or we were caught up in who sold the most records or box office openings or crazy stuff like, 'Did we get the latest drop before anybody else? But not this year. This year was the great leveler."
Best success to her!
