It was announced that Jennifer Lopez would be this year’s recipient of the MTV’s Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. The award is a huge honor, and is meant to celebrate artists whose music and videos have made a major impact on pop culture.
Passed winners of this prestigious award include Beyonce, Rihanna, Britney Spears, Janet Jackson, and Justin Timberlake, so she’s in good company. This also marks a major milestone as J.Lo is the first Latinx woman to win the award. Our girl is breaking boundaries, ya’ll!
She’s been entertaining us for nearly 20 years and now we can watch her hit the VMA stage to perform a medley of all her biggest hits, as is customary for all the Vanguards. Can’t freakin’ wait!
So to honor Jenny from the Block’s long and storied music video career, let’s take a look at some of her most iconic video moments.
