This month, the Kansas City Chiefs took on the Francisco 49ers in the 54th annual Super Bowl at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla.

But we all know that the Super Bowl is as much as about the music as it is football, and this year's long-awaited half-time show performance by J-Lo and Shakira got everyone talking - and not all said was good.

Now J-Lo has finally spoken up to address the criticism...

And the show marked the first time the music icons have performed on stage together.

"Ever since I saw Diana Ross fly off into the sky at the halftime show, I dreamed of performing at the Super Bowl," Jennifer Lopez said. "And now it's made even more special not only because it's the NFL's 100th season, but also because I am performing with a fellow Latina. I can't wait to show what us girls can do on the world's biggest stage."

And their performance got everyone talking.

Anticipation was sky high and it seems everyone has been saying the same thing about the pair's long-awaited performance - and let's just say Twitter had a lot to say about it!

On singing along...

Some tunes are basically irresistible, right?

On fitness...

We're not jealous - you are.

On Latinx pride...

Because these women are absolute icons.

On Shakira's weird tongue thing...

One of the greatest mysteries of our time, perhaps?

On She Wolf...

Truly, a banger.

On pride...

Truly representing in the best possible way.

On style icons...

We see no difference.

On aging...

And how the 2 goddesses haven't aged at all.

On "Hips Don't Lie"...

Contender for greatest song in the world?

And finally...

Just on how damn good the performance was as a whole.

But there's no denying that the performance was slightly on the raunchy side...

Not that we're complaining.

And despite the floods of admiration...

Not everyone was impressed with the X-rated performance.

Many felt it was highly inappropriate...

Especially with children watching the "family-friendly" performance.

For a while, the stars kept schtum.

But now J-Lo has spoken out and addressed the controversy.

"Tha's honestly silliness," she said.

She told Variety it was meant to be "a celebration of women and our Latino culture."

"Both of us are really respectful performers who are moms, who have kids, who are very conscious of what we do."

"We did a show that I believe was a celebration of women and our Latino culture that was really well received."

"And that small faction of people who want to be negative about it, it's not something I can even let in because it was such an amazing night, and so many beautiful things came out of it."

"The message of standing up for yourself, being a woman – that’s what I want to pass on to little girls."

"You're strong, you're beautiful — everything about you, be proud of it."

"I’m very proud of the performance that night." We're not surprised - we're proud of them too!

And, let's never forget ...

There's a huge double standard when it comes to what's seen as too sexy, and what's seen as acceptable. *Rolls eyes forever.* Fancy more Super Bowl controversy? Scroll on for the Jason Momoa commercial that got everyone talking - and not in a good way ...
