We are already used to the fact that celebrities thank the whole world while presenting the most prestigious awards.
However, Jennifer Lopez prepared certain words for her speech as she accepted the Generation Award at the 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards. The singer took to stage this Sunday in Los Angeles, giving a somewhat spontaneous speech:
“I want to thank all the people who showed me this life. I want to thank the people who gave me joy and those who broke my heart.
Those who were honest and who lied to me. “I want to thank my true love, and I want to remember the moments I lied to myself because that’s how I realized I needed to grow,” the singer said from the stage.
But Jennifer didn’t stop there and continued her moving speech with tears: “I want to thank all the people who told me to my face that I couldn’t do it. I don’t think I could have done it without you. And I know I couldn’t have done it without the fans who watched my films.”
Of course, the star didn’t forget her fiancé Ben Affleck, saying in addition to the sweet “thank you” that she would do her best “to get home at 19:00.
