Jennifer Lopez Named Pop Culture Innovator of the Year


Jennifer Lopez doesn't plan on slowing down anytime soon — and her enduring power and success have earned her yet another incredible honor.

The multi-hyphenate is being presented with WSJ. Magazine's Innovators Award for pop culture innovator of the year, PEOPLE can exclusively confirm. The honor will be given to Lopez by Columbian singer Maluma, 26, virtually on Wednesday night as WSJ. Magazine celebrates 10 years of innovation.

"Until the world is 100 percent perfect and completely fixed I will never be done," Lopez says in a clip from her acceptance video, which will be livestreamed.

Maluma — who collaborated with Lopez, 51, on two singles, "Pa' Ti" and "Lonely" — presents the recognition, saying of the longtime star, "I'm grateful for all the hard work and sacrifice she's made over the years and for paving the way for so many other Latin artists."

"Her creativity, her passion, the perfection she brings to the studio, and onset is the reason she's a superstar and the reason I'm proud to present this award," Maluma also says.

Some of this year's slated nominees and presenters include director Ava Duvernay; K-pop band BTS; actor Ethan Hawke and James Corden; actresses Michaela Coel and Taraji P. Henson; creator and actress Phoebe Waller-Bridge; singer-songwriter Patti Smith; and producer Tyler Perry.
