    And though most people praised their performance, there were some who criticized the show for being "too sexy," "not family-friendly," and even "pornographic."

    An offensive and politically charged Super Bowl half time porn show to families watching with children. Good looking women for sure but an offensive performance in America’s biggest sports event. Pathetic.

    Fans were quick to defend the stars, citing a gender double-standard and racism, given J.Lo and Shakira are both Latina.

    these conservative moms who think shakira and jlo's performance was "too sexy for kids" didn't have a problem when adam levine was half naked and gyrating all over the superbowl stage in 2019

    Now, J.Lo herself is speaking out about the backlash.

    When asked about critics who called her performance "too adult" at this year's Spirit Awards, the 50-year-old told Variety, "That's honestly silliness."

    “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.”
