The exciting news just hit the internet that none other than Jennifer Lopez herself will host this year’s American Music Awards! If that isn’t exciting enough she will also perform!
JLo turned into an AMA favorite throughout the years. Back in 2000 she scored her first nomination, in 2001 she performed J.Lo album’s debut single Love Don’t Cost A Thing at the show. In 2003 she won her first AMA for Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist and in 2007 she won Favorite Latin Artist. She debuted her single Louboutins on the AMA stage in 2009. 2011 was a big year for Jenny since she performed Papi and On The Floor and won the Favorite Latin Artist Award. And do you remember her legendary Celia Cruz tribute performance from 2013? Last year she heated up with stage with her sultry Booty performance.
We are very excited about the news, this is the first time Jennifer will host an award show. We can’t wait to see the multiple outfits she will wear on stage and what she has in store for us lovers performance wise!

Today, the United Nations Foundation announced Jennifer Lopez as the first-ever Global Advocate for Girls and Women at the UN Foundation. In this new role, Jennifer will help to amplify the call for action to address the needs and rights of girls and women around the world.
Jennifer’s role will focus on mobilizing action to address major challenges for girls and women around the world, in support of the UN Secretary-General’s Every Woman, Every Child initiative. From supporting maternal health programs and ensuring access to education and health services around the world, to working to end gender-based violence, she will support the work of the UN Foundation and the UN agencies it supports. In a press release, Jennifer said:
“Becoming a mother has made me more aware of the struggles of women and children throughout the world. While some progress has been made, there is still a lot more work that needs to be done for gender equality and universal access to medical care. I am happy to be joining the UN Foundation and eager to lend my voice and ensure that all girls and women are safe, healthy, educated and empowered.”
Jennifer’s first event as the Global Advocate for Girls and Women at the UN Foundation will be Friday, September 25th. She will speak at a high-level event focused on the business case for investing in girls, women, and gender equality.
