Gloria Estefan appears in Shade Jennifer Lopez’s comments at the Super Bowl

  • Gloria Estefan seemed to overshadow Jennifer Lopez’s comments about her appearance at the 2020 Super Bowl with Shakira.
  • “Imagine what J.Lo would have said if I had been third?” Estefan laughed.
  • She said they asked her to join them, but she did not want a “December diet”.

Gloria Estefan seems to overshadow Jennifer Lopez’s comments about sharing the stage with Shakir for the halftime of the Super Bowl 2020 show in Tuesday’s episode “Watch what happens live!”

Host Andy Cohen asked Estefan to share her thoughts on what Lopez said in her new

the documentary “Half Time” that it was “worst idea in the world” that two Latino singers share the stage and share about 14 minutes of performance. In response, Estefan said, “Look, this is the point. You have very little time, like 12 minutes or anything like that, to get on and off the set.”

“So can one person do that? Yes,” she continued. “But I think they wanted to do Miami and Latino extravagance and they tried to pack as much as possible. And they killed it. It was an amazing show.”

When Cohen asked if she also came to perform during the show, it seemed that Estefan threw in some shade. “Imagine what J.Lo would have said if I had been third?” the Cuban American singer laughed.

“I would literally come out, like,‘ Come and shake your body ’and come out,” she continued.

Estefan grew up in Miami and gained fame as the lead singer of The Miami Sound Machine, so it would be logical for her to perform. But she said she turned down the offer because it was “their moment” and “I did a few Super Bowls”.

In addition, she added: “I didn’t want to go on a diet in December.”

While Estefan belittled the comments, Netflix documentary about Lopez “Half Time,“released earlier this month, he made it clear he was against the precedent of the NFL asking two singers to split performance time. As Lopez’s longtime manager Benny Medina pointed out, one performer is usually allowed to choose whether to have guests or not.

“Usually, you have one headliner at the Super Bowl,” Medina said in “Half Time.”

“That headliner is constructing a show, and if they decide to have other guests, it’s their choice. It was an insult to say you needed two Latinos to do a job that one artist has historically done,” he continued.

NFL representatives did not immediately respond to Insider’s previous request for comment regarding Lopez’s and Medina’s remarks at halftime.
