SHE was the big star of the show…
Emme, the 14-year-old daughter of Jennifer Lopez (52), was on stage with her famous mom for the second time. At the sixth “Blue Diamond Gala” in Los Angeles, they sang Christina Perris “A Thousand Years”. Although Lopez performed a number of her hits, THIS mother-daughter duet went around the world.
Why? In her speech, the pop star used gender-neutral pronouns to introduce Emme to the audience. In other words, the teenager does not feel that he or she belongs to either the female or the male gender.
J.Lo tweeted clips of her daughter singing before the performance.
Shortly thereafter, Mom introduces her daughter to viewers using the English gender-neutral pronouns “they”/”them”: “The last time we performed together was in a big stadium like this and I keep asking her if they would sing with me again, but they just don’t want to.”
And he continues to joke: “So this is a very special moment because they are very, very busy and well booked and expensive. But they’re worth every penny because they’re my favorite duet partners ever.”
Then Emme appears in a casual, pink outfit with a cool baseball hat on her head. For the performance, the young superstar also chooses a microphone in rainbow colors.
During the performance, the two repeatedly hugged each other. With that, J.Lo made it clear: You have MY support!
Max and Emme are the children of Jennifer Lopez’s marriage to singer Marc Anthony (53). The couple separated when the twins were three years old. Since then, J.Lo has described herself as a single mother.
To circumvent gender definitions, “they”/”them” is used for non-binary people. In translation, this corresponds to the German plural “sie”.
