Jennifer Lopez Receives MTV Generation Award for Accepting Emotion; Thanks to family, fans and even naysayers (video)

Jennifer Lopez took the stage at the MTV Movie & TV Awards on Sunday night to accept the Generation Award, and she thanked everyone who helped her along the way, including some whose intentions were the opposite.

After the show played a montage of some of Lopez’s most famous performances, the multi-hyphenate began his talk with some thoughts on his career.

“You know, I watch these movies and I see all the wonderful people I’ve had the chance to know and work with. You’re only as good as the people you work with. And if you’re lucky, they make you better. And I’ve been very lucky in that regard,” Lopez said. “As an actress, I’m not any of the women I’ve played, but there’s a part of what is deeply true to me in each of these characters. And since you can only create the truth if you have truly lived it, I have another kind of thank you list tonight.

Lopez became emotional as she thanked not only the people who have been a part of her life in all the right ways, but also those who have discouraged her from careers in which she has excelled.

“I want to thank all the people who gave me this life; I want to thank the people who gave me joy and those who broke my heart; those who were real and those who lied to me,” she continued. “I want to thank true love, and I want to thank the way I lied to myself because that’s how I knew I had to grow up. I want to thank disappointment and failure for teaching me to to be strong, and my children for teaching me to love.

“I want to thank everyone 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 this without you. And I know I couldn’t have done it without the fans who saw the movies,” she continued to cheers from the audience.

As Lopez finished her speech, she turned her attention to her longtime manager Benny Medina, to congratulate him for being there from the start and one of her biggest supporters.

“I would like to thank Benny Medina. He doesn’t like me talking about him. He likes to be in the background,” she said.

“But he is more than my manager. If there’s a person who believed in me from the start, and the first time I played them a little shredded demo of a song I wrote that day – they never let me stop believing in me – it was him,” she said.
