The star failed to contain her emotion … Sunday, June 5, 2022, Jennifer Lopez received the Generation Award, a prestigious title rewarding her career, during the MTV Movie Awards ceremony. After a video retracing her career was released, it was in a sublime black leather dress that the singer and actress delivered a very cash speech. “I watch these movies and see all the wonderful people I’ve had the chance to know and work with. You’re only as good as the people you work with. And if you’re lucky, they make you better . And I was very lucky in that regard,” she said.
In front of the public, Jennifer Lopez dropped: “I want to thank all the people who gave me this life. I want to thank the people who gave me joy, and those who broke my heart. Those who were true and those who lied to me. I want to thank true love, and I want to thank the way I lied to myself, because that’s how I knew I had to grow up.” The artist went on to thank disappointment and failure for teaching her to be strong. She also had a thought for her children Max and Emme (14 years old) who would have “taught her to love each other.” In tears, the star added, “I want to thank everyone who told me, to my face – or, when I wasn’t in the room – that I couldn’t do this. I really don’t think that I could have done it without you. And I know I couldn’t have done it without the fans who saw the movies.” Pointing to the audience, she slipped, “You’re the reason I’m here and been here, and I love you!”

Jennifer Lopez’s thanks to her manager
On stage, Ben Affleck’s fiancée took a moment to thank the one who always believed in her: her longtime manager, Benny Medina. “He doesn’t like me talking about him. He likes being withdrawn… But he’s more than my manager. If there’s anyone who believed in me from the start, it’s him. Since the first time I played a little demo of a song I wrote that day. He never let me stop believing in myself. That was him,” she said . After Benny Medina blew her a kiss, Jennifer Lopez added, “You know when someone’s by your side, you know when they’re there when you’re at your lowest and most desperate point, you never know them. ‘ll never forget. And you never want to let it go. I think I carried on more for you than for me. I love you, thank you (…) It hasn’t been easy but I wouldn’t change everything for nothing in the world.”
