Jennifer Lopez will never age, she continues to get finer over time like wine but that’s not the only thing but her looks are only a plus to the legacy she’s leaving behind. The Puerto Rican singer/actress has been called upon to recieve this year’s Michael Jackson Vanguard Award at the 2018 VMA’s.
The Vanguard Award acknowledges music performers with great accomplishments since the very first VMA’s in 1984. In 1991, MTV named the award after Michael Jackson, who received the honor in 1988. Rihanna, Janet Jackson, Kanye West and more have recieved the award in the past.
Lopez has been in the music industry for a minute and it’s still being recognized up until this day. She’s had 80 million records sold worldwide along with 3 number one albums. She was also the first to obtain a number one album in the same week she was filming for a movie in 2001. She was shooting a romantic comedy, The Wedding Planner.
The recipient of the award always performs to compliment the honor. J.Lo is also nominated for 2 categories this year: Best Latin and Best Collaboration.
