"I grew up on MTV and watching all my idols get this award". "Their videos inspired me to do the videos that I did", she said. The very first Vanguard awards were given to David Bowie, The Beatles, and Richard Lester in 1984 at the very first MTV VMAs.

She previously won Best Dance Video "Waiting for Tonight" in 2000, and Best Hip-Hop Video "I'm Real" in 2002.

She's up for "Best Collaboration" and "Best Latin Video" for her Cardi B tune "Dinero", which also features DJ Khaled.

Wearing an oversized, white button-down shirt; denim; high-heeled, over-the-knee boots with belt buckles, which made them look like jeans; a gold "Jennifer" necklace; and hoop earrings, Lopez said that "it's mind-blowing" to be receiving the award. I can't even believe it.
