Jennifer Lopez has gotten praise for introducing her daughter, Emme, with gender-neutral pronouns.
Emme, whom J.Lo shares with her ex-husband Marc Anthony and their twin brother Max, is a talented vocalist who has even shared the stage with their famous mother.
Emme joined their mother on stage during the 2020 Super Bowl, which was heavily featured in Jennifer Lopez’s new Netflix documentary, Halftime. They first showcased their vocal prowess by duetting on the song “Limitless” during Jennifer Lopez’s “It’s My Party” tour in 2019.
J.Lo invited Emme to the stage during one of her most recent duets at the LA Dodgers Foundation Blue Diamond Gala in Los Angeles this past weekend.
During her musical performance, the 52-year-old singer invited her 14-year-old daughter Emme Maribel to join her onstage. When introducing herself to her fans, though, she used the pronouns “they” and “them” multiple times.
“I often request that they join me in singing, but they refuse. So as a result, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. They’re quite busy. Booked. And it’s not cheap! So when they come out, it costs me money “J.Lo cracked a joke.
Singer/actress/dancer J.Lo continued sweetly: “But they’re worth every dime because they’re my all-time favorite duet partner. So, if you’ll pardon me, I’d appreciate it if you could indulge me.”
Emem then entered the stage with a rainbow-beamed microphone, singing Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years,” Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the USA,” and the “Let’s Get Loud” entrance.
J.Lo captioned a series of lovely photographs of the couple performing, “Last night…”
J.Lo’s supporters commended her for politely using her child’s pronouns.
Marc Anthony, Jennifer Lopez’s ex-husband, is Muiz’s father. Lopez and Anthony’s other child is Max, Emme’s fraternal twin. Following Muiz’s appearance at the Super Bowl halftime show, both parents acknowledged their joy in their child.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Blue Diamond Gala raised a record $3.6 million for LADF, which supports healthcare, education, homelessness, and social justice for Los Angeles residents.
