Jennifer Lopez Calls Lady Gaga Inspiring, Presents Her With Elle Award: Watch

Last updated:

Jennifer Lopez honors Lady Gaga as one of ELLE’s Women in Hollywood.

In her speech, Lopez says Gaga’s unwavering drive to pursue her craft and push the boundaries has created a ripple effect for millions to better themselves.

“You inspire not only me, but a generation to keep challenging themselves and keep chasing their dreams.”

Gaga also gushes over JLo for a solid two minutes during her speech, labeling Lopez a powerhouse performer.

The power that this has
The intelligence that this has
The clearance that this has
The impact that this has
The access that this has
The international implications that this has

Gaga’s speech was exceptional. She touches on her battles with PTSD and fibromyalgia, sexual assault and what it means to be a woman.

“As a sexual assault survivor by someone in the entertainment industry, as a woman who is still not brave enough to say his name, as a woman who lives with chronic pain, as a woman who was conditioned at a very young age to listen to what men told me to do, I decided today I wanted to take the power back. Today I wear the pants,” she said.

“In an age where I can barely watch the news, I gasped at the unjust men, and some women quite frankly, that I see running this country. I had a revelation that I had to be empowered to be myself today more than ever. To resist the standards of Hollywood, whatever that means. To resist the standards of dressing to impress. To use what really matters: my voice.”

It’s also worth mentioning Gaga confirmed she’s engaged to talent agent, Christian Carino.
