Last night Jennifer Lopez was the first woman to win the Billboard Music Icon Award. In a video montage introducing the award Lopez was described as a “barrier breaker” and an “inspiration for girls”. Before accepting the award she performed twice one song being “First Love” from her upcoming album “A.K.A”. During her acceptance speech she thanked God, her friends, her family, her management and encouraged everyone to “follow their dreams,” think big and have faith. Being the first woman to win the award, J.Lo was preceded by Neil Diamond, Stevie Wonder and Prince. She represents women and latinas amazingly! Watch her performance and acceptance speech below.
