It’s safe to say that Jennifer Lopez merited a prize after her Super Bowl LIV halftime show.
The 50-year-old singer collaborated with Shakira in Miami earlier this month to put on a show that celebrated Latin culture during the major event, and Lopez’s beau, Alex Rodriguez, has shared some in the background footage from the occasion.
In a clip shared on Rodriguez’s YouTube page, Lopez uncovered that while she was amped up for the performance, she was anticipating one explicit thing after the show was over: a doughnut.
“I want to cry right now,” said Lopez in the clip while hugging family and friends. “Get me a doughnut. Get me a doughnut.”
In the video, somebody hurried off after the request and came back with a doughnut on a plate, which they gave to Lopez.
“They said if I did good I could have a doughnut,” said Lopez while chewing.
“It felt like flying,” she told Rodriguez in the video. “Every time I rehearsed, it was so hard. It was hard. But my adrenaline must have been at 150 because, honestly, I felt like a feather.”
During the show, Lopez performed hits like “Jenny From the Block” and “Waiting for Tonight” before being joined onstage by J Balvin and, inevitably, her daughter Emme.
Shakira opened the show with “She Wolf,” and played out a few of her hits before Lopez made that big appearance.
The couple closed the show with a performance of Shakira’s “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa).”
