The singer noted that her personal and professional milestones were just beginning. “It’s halftime! I keep saying that.

So, I’m very excited about it. I do think it’s just halftime.”

The documentary, which made its debut at the 2022 Tribeca Festival, follows Lopez’s career and how it led to her 2020 Super Bowl halftime performance.
