After the release of the trailer weeks ago, Halftime finally made its initial release on June 9 on the streaming service Netflix. The film is an original documentary directed by Amanda Micheli. It is based on the career of Singer Jennifer Lopez, especially focusing on her performance at the Super Bowl LIV Halftime Show.

Her performance alongside singer Shakira was presented at the opening of the Tribeca Film Festival in New York. Although the show was being praised and highly cheered by the audience, Lopez never thought that having two stars do the Super Bowl was a great idea anyway. “This is the worst idea in the world to have two people perform at the Super Bowl. It was the worst idea in the world,” she says in one of the parts of her documentary.
Honestly, the If You Had My Love singer does not blame Shakira. Both the artists were just trying to do their best as they were told. “If it was gonna be a double headliner, they should’ve given us 20 (expletive) minutes,” says Lopez after signing for the 12-minute split up each performance time. In a later scene, she was seen bashing in frustration about the time allotted for the songs.

Lopez’s manager, Benny Medina also chose to have a few words about Jennifer Lopez’s annoyance. “It was insulting to think that you needed two Latinas to do the job that historically an artist has done”, he said.
