Jennifer Lopez Will Be Awarded MTV's Vanguard Award

Jennifer Lopez Will Be Awarded MTV's Vanguard Award”

Jennifer Lopez will be given the MTV Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award this year, the network announced Tuesday. Growing up on MTV and watching all my idols get this award ...

Lopez is receiving the special award in recognition of her 20-year career, during which time she's sold over 40 million albums and released dozens of hit singles, while at the same time cultivating a successful career as a film and TV star. I can't even believe it.

The Vanguard Award has recognized great accomplishments for music performers since the first Video Music Awards ceremony in 1984. The moment also marks 19 years since Lopez was nominated for Best New Artist in a Video at the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards. Jennifer is now nominated for two VMAs for her latest hit, "Dinero". Their videos inspired me to do the videos I did.

The 49-year-old singer and actress will receive the gong at a ceremony in NY on August 20.

Other previous recipients include Kanye West, Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Madonna and Janet Jackson.

Missy Elliott offered her congratulations, writing "Congratulations to JLo!"
