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."

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.
