Jennifer Lopez to Receive Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award And People Are Not Happy
Jennifer Lopez has been named the 2019 recipient of MTV’s Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the VMAs. The singer-dancer is ecstatic about the honor, but many onlookers are not.
It’s no secret that Lopez is not known for doing epic or memorable music videos. Hence the reason why many fans are bewildered by this choice.
Onlookers took to social media to voice their discontent and ask how Lopez could receive the honor before Lady Gaga, Busta Rhymes or Missy Elliot.
Elliot tweeted congratulatory wishes to Lopez and opted to stay out of the social media drama.
In fact, Missy Elliot was the artist whose name was mentioned the most on social media to be shunned for the honor.
Lopez has been nominated for 22 VMAs, but has only won twice. Her video “Dinero” is nominated for two VMAs this year.
The 2018 MTV VMAs take Air on August 20.
