Jennifer Lopez burst onto the stage of the MTV Video Music Awards on Monday (Aug. 20) looking like she was ready to light the night on fire. And just a few feet away stood her love Alex Rodriguez, looking like he couldn’t be more proud of his girl.
In the nine-minute performance, Lopez sweat it out on the floor, performing a slew of songs throughout her career, including ‘Waiting For Tonight’, ‘Get On The Floor’ and ‘Love Don’t Cost A Thing.’, And if it wasn’t enough to watch in awe of her dancing and singing abilities, it was even better watching Rodriguez with a permanent smile on his face. Through his girl’s performance, he could also be seen in the front row taking video on his phone.
It was darn right adorable.
It was also adorable to listen to Lopez gush over Rodriguez during her acceptance speech for the Video Vanguard award. “You’re like my twin soul,” Lopez said. “We’re like mirror images of each other. My life is sweeter and better with you in it because you make me realize that every day the sky is not the limit — the universe is infinite, and so is what we can accomplish together with love and trust and understanding. There’s so much more to do — to experience — and there is no one I’d rather do it with. You’re my macho baby and I love you.”
