Jennifer Lopez, also known as J. Lo or Jenny From The Block, kicked off the Tribeca Film Festival at The United Palace in Washington Heights to premiere her new documentary "Halftime" which will air on Netflix on June 14. As one of the most recognizable artists in the world, J. Lo has consistently pushed the envelope to show what it means to be a true star on and off the stage. "Halftime" in its truest form is an intimate film that shares her life story and provides insight on her Super Bowl performance and her response to being stubbed at the Oscars for her role in the film "Hustlers".

As the celebration began, a star-studded lineup of superstars included Michelle Buteau, Erika Alexander, Tabitha Dumo, Stevie Mackey, Pam Grier, Ryan Seacrest, French Montana, and the co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival Robert De Niro walked the red carpet to show their support for the film.

In the trailer above, Lopez narrates, "my whole life I've been battling to be hard, to be seen, to be taken seriously."

"It was hard. I just had very low self-esteem. I had to really figure out who I was and believe in that and not anything else."

I am still getting chills from both the red carpet and the viewing of "Halftime" and am very thankful for this 1iota experience. As a young girl, I remember watching her as a Fly Girl and thinking that I too can be that one-day. I watched the movie Selena, Enough, The Wedding Planner, and Maid In Manhattan and thought how incredible she is as an actress. When any of her hit records such as Love Don't Cost a Thing, All I Have, and I'm Real came through the speakers I was in the mirror trying to learn every note and catch every dance move. Most importantly, I love and appreciate her because she is from the Bronx and if you know me is to know that representing where I am from is at the top of my list. Jennifer Lopez deserves every flower in the garden for everything that she has contributed to our culture. With all the accomplishments that she has, you would think she would be slowing down but J. Lo admitted that this is just the beginning.
