Alert: A Jennifer Lopez documentary is in the works.
On February 1, a New York Times profile revealed that Netflix is working on a Jennifer Lopez documentary that centers on the momentous year in which the multi-hyphenate turned 50. That 12-month period was, she said, when “everything I had worked for in movies, music and fashion just started happening.” And on May 18, the first trailer for the film, which will be available for streaming on June 18, finally arrived:
In her 50th year, the superstar played the sizzling Ramona in Lorene Scafaria’s Hustlers, earning critical acclaim and her second Golden Globe nomination; embarked on her It’s My Party world tour; received the CFDA’s Fashion Icon Award; and stormed the runway at Milan Fashion Week wearing the same plunging Versace jungle dress that had become legendary after she chose it for the 2000 Grammys. If that wasn’t enough, she then went on to headline the 2020 Super Bowl halftime show with Shakira.
In a 2019 video diary, Lopez said that it was crucial for her to mark her 50th year with the concert tour. “It was important as a woman to do that, to let people know that you don’t get to write women off at a certain point in their life,” she said. “You’re getting better and better as you go, so long as you are open to the experience of growing and evolving.” Get ready to be inspired.
