Jennifer Lopez's Halftime Show Got the Seal of Approval From Bruce Springsteen
This year's Super Bowl Halftime Show included a rundown of Jennifer Lopez's greatest hits, including "Jenny From the Block," "I'm Real," and "Waiting for Tonight," but sprinkled between those and "Lets Get Loud," Lopez and her daughter, Emme, managed to squeeze in a cover of Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the U.S.A." During an appearance on The Tonight Show, Lopez explained that yes, she did get permission, and Springsteen himself said that he loved it.
Lopez explained to Jimmy Fallon that Springsteen called her after the show (Also, do celebrities just all have each other's numbers?) and applauded the show as a whole and, more specifically, said that he loved hearing his song during the performance.
"He called after the Super Bowl, and he was like, 'You girls can really sing and dance!'" Lopez told Fallon. "He said he and his wife, Patti, loved hearing the song. He was like, 'It made our hearts leap with joy,' so that was a great thing."
She went on to break down all of the looks from the show, the songs, and, of course, the overall message: "Women are on top of the world right now," she said. How did she show it? By literally being on top of it all. "I wanted to be on top of the Empire State Building and do 'Jenny From the Block.'"
