Jennifer Lopez has a lot to celebrate this month, and we’re not even halfway to June yet.

For starters, she welcomed summer with the spring collection of her own shoe line, which is available at DSW.

The 52-year-old superstar’s documentary entitled “Halftime” is also set to open this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. On June 14, the inspirational film will be available to stream everywhere on Netflix.

But of course, let’s not forget that she’s still very much in love and engaged to actor Ben Affleck.

Lifetime achievement award

On June 5, Jennifer was honored with the Generation Award at the 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards.

According to MTV, this lifetime achievement honor is given to “beloved actors whose diverse contributions to both film and television have turned them into household names.”

The multi-hyphenate star began her career with a stint as a Fly Girl on “In Living Color” before landing her breakout role in “Selena.”

Since then, she’s starred in beloved romantic comedies like “Maid in Manhattan,” while also developing a successful music career.

Jennifer joins a long list of beloved stars and past award recipients like Scarlett Johansson, Reese Witherspoon, and Sandra Bullock.

In her tearful acceptance speech, Jennifer thanked everyone from her family to her supporters and detractors.

“I want to thank all the people who told me to my face or when I wasn’t in the room that I couldn’t do this. I really don’t think I could have done it without you. And I know I couldn’t have done it without the fans.”

Jennifer also thanked her children “for teaching me to love” and gave a shoutout to longtime manager Benny Medina.

She ended her speech by saying, “Ben and everybody at home, wait for me to have dinner! I’ll be home by seven.”
