Popular Hollywood act, Jennifer Lopez has disclosed what lessons 2020 taught her.

She had a few things to say while onstage to collect her People’s Icon of 2020 award at the E! People’s Choice Awards  on Sunday night.

Lopez stated that this year was “the great leveler” adding that 2020 showed us what mattered as well as what didn’t.

Speaking on compassion for humanity she said, “Helping each other, loving each other, being kind to each other. And the importance of that connection, that human touch and I realize it’s what I strive for in everything I do, to reach people, to touch people”.

“Oh, my God 2020 man, 2020 was no joke, right?” Lopez said while accepting the Award. “I mean, before 2020 we were obsessing about winning this award, getting nominated for that award, we were caught up on who sold the most records or who had the biggest box office opening or crazy stuff.

“This year was the great leveler. It showed us what mattered, what didn’t and for me, reinforced what matters most, people.
“Helping each other, loving each other, being kind to each other. And the importance of that connection, that human touch and I realize it’s what I strive for in everything I do, to reach people, to touch people. I believe that’s what we all want, shared experiences, to know that we’re not in this alone,”
Jennifer Lopez further added, “Your belief and your faith in me motivates me to keep going and sometimes when I’m tired or beaten down like a lot of us have been this year, it’s my family, my friends, my babies and my fans, you guys, who have lifted me up when I couldn’t lift myself.”
The actress/singer and producer spoke on perseverance and what it meant to her as a Latina and a woman.
“As a Latina and as a woman, we have to sometimes work twice as hard to get the opportunity. Sometimes my big dreams and my ambitions made the people around me nervous people would say you’re a dancer, you can’t be an actress. The more they said I couldn’t, the more I knew that I had to.
“So now here I stand, so very grateful, knowing that the true measure of my success is not in box office numbers or records sold but from the love that I feel from all of you and yes, I feel it”, she said.
