Megan Thee Stallion recently released the first single from her upcoming collaboration with Dua Lipa. Her recent album Something for Thee Hotties, the Shenseea collaboration “Lick,” and the Cheetos tie-in “Flamin’ Hottie” all preceded the release of this single. F*cking Identical Twins is an upcoming A24 film in which she will appear alongside Bowen Yang, Megan Mulally, and Nathan Lane.
Jennifer Lopez Accepts Icon Award
There were multiple moments when the celebrity was interrupted by the adoring audience, which included Lopez’s beaming boyfriend Ben Affleck, who stood as he clapped for him, his son Samuel and Lopez’s daughter Emme.
That Jennifer Lopez is an icon was already well known to all of us.
This year’s Icon Award was handed to the singer-actress at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on Tuesday night, and she used the occasion to express her deep gratitude to her fans.
Lopez, 52, expressed her gratitude to the crowd by saying, “I appreciate this so much, so very, very much.” “The truth is that I wish I could tell you that winning accolades was the most important thing to me, but that isn’t the case. You should never assume that I am uninterested in glittery, glistening objects because I certainly am! I am not capable of lying; everyone is aware of this. However, this is not the reason I do what I do. It isn’t the most important thing to me. I truly do it for you and your family.”
The actress was often interrupted by the adoring throng, which included Lopez’s beaming boyfriend Ben Affleck, who stood as he clapped, his son Samuel, 10, and Lopez’s daughter Emme, 14. Affleck’s son Samuel, 10, and Lopez’s daughter Emme, 14, were also in attendance.
“Because of you, I get to do what I love the most in life and that is the most wonderful blessing,” Lopez continued. “That’s a gift that you give me and I just want to say thank you for that. Thank you to everyone who comes to a show, streams a song, sees a movie, follows me. You guys are the ones who give me the opportunity every day to live a life I couldn’t even imagine would come true when I was a little girl growing up in the Bronx.”
She went on to say: “You took care of it for me. You were instrumental in making that dream a reality. I’m trembling! And I shall be eternally grateful to each and every one of you for your assistance. This is something I will never forget, and I will never take it for granted again. As a result, I’d like to express my gratitude to each and every one of you for having faith in me when others did not, and even when I did not. Thank you for helping me discover who I truly am.”
When she came to the end of her emotional statement, the Marry Me actress provided her own abbreviation for the word “icon,” which she explained stood for “I can overcome negativity.”
“Allow me to share something else with you,” she said at the end. “I’ve just just gotten begun.”

Following the presentation of her award, Lopez took to the stage to perform a funky version of “On My Way,” from her film Marry Me, which she sang in front of a crowd of drag queens dressed in some of her most iconic looks from over the years, including the green Versace gown she wore to the 2000 Grammy Awards. Lopez won the award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.
She then played “Get Right,” a song from 2005, while dressed in a long white coat with a train printed with the words “Equality” in black across the front.
The award presentation, which will be hosted by LL Cool J, is set to take place on March 31. According to a press release, Lopez will be acknowledged for “her effect on pop culture, longevity, and continuous relevance as a touring and radio force.”
Kat Valdez, Kat Valdez’s character in the upcoming romantic comedy Marry Me, has released the music video for her “Marry Me” ballad. It was revealed in the video that Affleck made a brief appearance in Lopez’s day-to-day life.
In addition, Lopez announced last month that she and her longtime buddy Jimmy Fallon would write a multilingual children’s book titled Con Pollo: A Bilingual Playtime Adventure. Oct. 11 is the date of the book release.
In addition to launching my first children’s book, I’m thrilled to have worked with Jimmy! Lopez made the comment in a statement to People magazine.
In an interview, Fallon revealed that he and the singer-actress “had always wanted to do something.”
I love her because she is such a wonderful mother,” Fallon remarked.
Since both of us are parents, we decided to write a children’s book.
