After the controversy behind this year's Super Bowl Halftime Show, Jennifer Lopez has finally spoken out about the response.

She responded to the criticism during an interview with Variety at the Spirit Awards, to which she had a powerful response.


While the performance was a clear hit amongst most fans, some viewers felt the performance was "too sexy" and even "pornographic."

J-Lo, of course, responded with class.

Lopez was able to laugh about the criticism before delivering her answer.

"That's honestly silliness," said J-Lo.

"Both of us are really respectful performers who are moms, who have kids, who are very conscious of what we do."
"We did a show that I believe was a celebration of women and our Latino culture that was really well received. And that small faction of people who want to be negative about it, it's not something I can even let in because it was such an amazing night, and so many beautiful things came out of it."
"The message of standing up for yourself, being a woman – that's what I want to pass on to little girls. You're strong, you're beautiful — everything about you, be proud of it."
She's not alone.
In fact, many people were quick to jump to her defense on Twitter, citing the hypocrisy and double standards in comparison to last year's halftime show.



Others thought the judgement was just plain dumb.





J-Lo had no regrets regarding the performance. In face, she's extremely happy with how it went.

"I'm very proud of the performance that night," she said.

We aren't perfect. There's plenty of things in our pasts that we look back and cringe at.

That being said, sometimes those cringe moments go far past cringe. Sometimes they get to the point of no return awfulness because that's where our human nature took us in this moment.

I don't miss high school or the people in it. People who seem to have peaked in high school also weird me out. How? Why? I can definitely tell you that life got much more interesting the older I got (my 20s were way more fun than any of my time in high school). If you were to ask me if I have any regrets, I suppose I would say that I wish I had been more assertive and stood up for myself more. Depression has a way of complicating goals like that, though. Let me tell you: It feels nice to be so much healthier than I was then.

When we are on the outside looking in, it can feel so obvious that a relationship is doomed.

When we offer advice to friends, family, or people oversharing at a party, the correct next move often seems wildly obvious: get out of that relationship.

Some people don't take breakups very well. And those that don't can sometimes engage in behavior that others might view as bothersome, unsettling, even toxic.

Others engage in abusive behavior during the relationship, a major red flag that some people might not take seriously until it's too late.
