After winning big at the MTV Video Music Awards on Monday night - taking home both the Artist of the Year and the Video of the Year awards - she took to Twitter to post a message to her 2012 self.

The two began talking about her favorite music video of all time, which she revealed as Janet Jackson's "Pleasure Principal" video. At The Disco. Jennifer Lopez will receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award for lifetime achievement, an honour which was awarded to Pink in 2017, and Rihanna in 2016.

Of course, the VMAs have always been about "moments" as much as awards themselves, and, as was the case past year, these didn't offer a flashpoint like Miley Cyrus twerking or Kanye West barging into a Taylor Swift speech with the immortal words, "I'ma let you finish". She even reunited with Ja Rule for that aforementioned collaboration.

"My life is sweeter and better with you in it", she said. "Because I thought you playing 'On the Floor, ' and you were playing 'El Anillo.' I can not recognize my own songs". She said, "I knew I had to be better". It was, in a word, baffling: An Aretha Franklin tribute in which the big takeaway was that Madonna once sang the same song she did. well, let's just say the optics weren't great.

She's the woman of the night at the 2018 VMAs, so it's no surprise that Jennifer Lopez's style was ON-POINT for her performance. "The rapper, best known for the suicide prevention anthem "1-800-273-8255", wore a T-shirt that read, "(Expletive) the wall".
