What People Are Saying About Shakira, J. Lo Super Bowl Half Time Performance

Published

on

Sunday’s Super Bowl Half Time LIV was what most of the people were looking forward to. 

Aside from the games, people also wanted to look out for the live performance of two big stars, Shakira and Jennifer Lopez. It came complete with very well animated stage, pole-dancing, kid’s choir, and jaw-dropping dance moves.

However, an online debate started to create a spark – Was it empowering two women of color who are more than 40 years old in a provocative way, or were people just objectifying these women?

People have different reactions to their performances. Here are some of the responses from the netizens about the halftime show that happened last night:

“The Super Bowl half time show was just a bad strip show. We have had so much positive discussion about not treating women as sexual objects, then they go & do this. You can’t cry that women need to be treated better than support this display of sexual objectifying.”

“I’m no prude, but watching it with my 7yo daughter and 11yo son was uncomfortable.”

“I am embarrassed for my kids to watch this halftime show… what the hell. Stripper poles, crotch, and rear-end shots… no dignity. #SuperBowl #HalftimeShow shame on you Jennifer Lopez & Shakira.”

“Jennifer Lopez showing off that Hustlers pole dance training, letting the Academy know that they done messed up.”

“.@JLo and @shakira and all the special guests were so incredible!!! I danced and smiled the whole time. Such powerful, sexy women!!!! On camera and off!!!!! Love you, beautiful sexy, talented women.”

Kim Kardashian shared on her Twitter, “They shut it down!!!! Congrats on that amazing SuperBowl Halftime Show.”

“Shakira and JLo laughing in the face of ageism in America during the #SuperBowlLIV halftime show. Take that hater.”

“Chiming in because I know everyone will be making jokes about this for days — this is a popular Arab tradition, called zag route, used to express joy at celebrations. In the melting pot that is Miami, you could not have picked a better Super Bowl act, and this was a lovely touch.”

“Props to Jlo, Shakira, and the choreographer for the necessary statement with Latino children in cages singing “Born in the USA.”

However, their performance has much more meaning.
“Mi Gente” artist Balvin alongside Bad Bavin, is also today’s top Latin rap artist in the industry. These artists all performed in a much time debate about immigration in the US.

Together with the other kids, the props with cages signified subtle statement that parallels with the border crisis. The kids were wearing white shirts with American flags.

Lopez then wrapped herself in the coat that has a Puerto Rican flag inside and an American flag outside. That was a straightforward statement.

Hours before the show, J.LO shared on her Twitter a photo of her and Shakira embracing So excited to share the stage with you tonight @Shakira!” Lopez wrote. “Let’s show the world what two little Latin girls can do. #LetsGetLoud #GirlPower #SuperBowlLIV #SBLIV.”
What about you? What is your take on this?
