Hardest working woman in showbiz

I have read through some of the hateful reviews of "Halftime" on IMDB. My first impression is that people are jealous of J-Lo's success. Also, it seems that some people think she should be a different type of person than she is. They cannot seem to accept her as she is.

First off, she wasn't "crying" when she learned she wasn't nominated for an Oscar. She was crying in reference to other comments that were written about her in an article which stated how hard she had been working and that she should be acknowledged.

As for how many men she married: I'm sorry, what's it to you? Elizabeth Taylor, at one time the biggest star on the planet, married 8 times. So?

One of the great moments in this documentary is where Jennifer reveals that she couldn't have done the NFL Halftime show when she was younger. She says she "didn't even know" who she was yet. I totally relate to this. She has finally been "coming into her own." She is a powerhouse of energy and commitment and dedication. She employs a team of people, she cares about others, she gives back to the community -- why do people hate her so much?

Then people were going on ad nauseam about the fact that she was using "pole dancing" in the Halftime show. As if "pole dancing" was a worthless, despicable, low-life skill. She was incorporating the amazing skills she had gained by being in the movie "Hustlers." Which, by the way, she was great in. Outstanding.

Yes, people around her fill her head with thoughts of greatness and that she "deserved" the Oscar. And certainly, based on all the media that supported her, it seemed that she might get an Oscar nod. It was a big deal because other than Rita Moreno (and now, Ariana DeBose -- but not at the time this documentary was made), who else of Latin heritage has been an Oscar contender?

Jennifer sees life as an "American" and as a "Puerto Rican." This is one of the things that make her a unique celebrity. I do think that perhaps she misinterpreted what the halftime show was supposed to be and decided to make a statement -- I don't know if that was the right thing to do, but on the other hand, I understand why she did it.

She has been insulted, degraded, laughed at for the majority of her career. And yet... she has persisted. And thrived. And succeeded.

People are so incredibly stupid. They thought that because she "ended up" on American idol that that meant her career was "over with."

None of those people remotely understand how precarious showbiz is, which she also talks about. You can be on top of the world one day and by the next, no one wants anything to do with you. As Jean Smart put it in "Hacks," -- it never gets easier. It only gets harder and harder. And J-Lo has proved that she has the courage, guts and tenacity to continue.

Yes, the show is all about her. Yes, she seems to love the attention. She has lived her life in the public eye and she shares a lot with us, maybe too much -- but on the other hand, she has a tough veneer, and she knows just how far she can go. She has risen to the top and if she never does anything else, she made her mark and opened doors for other women and men of color.

Get over yourself your not that great

I like Jennifer Lopez and at times I do love her but this made me like her less. She played the victim the whole documentary like get over yourself. All she did was say she didn't care if she was nominated for an Oscar and then complain when she didn't. She bragged about her career saying she's earned it well you did not. Am I still a fan of hers yes I am I'm just a kettle less.

Yawn. Same old story.

So boring and gets political within the first 15 minutes. You get to hear how tough it is being beautiful, rich and living an outrageously privileged life. Apparently she had low self esteem, no confidence, was bullied, blah blah, blah. It's cliche after cliche.

Jello is the type of narcissist that pretends to be modest, but day and night focused on getting attention on themselves. Pathetic
