Why Gloria Estefan Just Took a Jab at Jennifer Lopez

Gloria Estefan is happy she didn't end up performing alongside Jennifer Lopez and Shakira for the 2020 Super Bowl halftime show, especially after watching Lopez air her frustration about having to share the stage with so little time to perform. Estefan, who has performed at the famed sporting event on more than one occasion, revealed that she turned down the performance during a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen. The Cuban singer told the Bravo honcho "Look, this is the bottom line. You have very little time, like 12 minutes or something, to get things on and off the set," Estefan, 64, explained.

Yes, but I think they wanted to throw a Miami and Latin extravaganza and they tried to pack it as much as possible…OK, and imagine what J.Lo would have said if I was the third [performer]!
