Jennifer Lopez is definitely putting in work for Latinos as NUVOtv’s English-language Latino channel’s chief creative officer.

In an interview on Wednesday with the Associated Press, J.Lo said that these are exciting times for Latinos. "There's a big revolution going on, it's like a media and cultural revolution of Latinos here in the United States," she said. "We're realizing our power. We're realizing that we matter here. You know, we're not just, you know, the guys working behind the scenes in the kitchens and as a plumber."

According to the Huffington Post, Jennifer is currently lobbying for greater diversity in TV programming, so this realization is coming at a perfect time. And it’s not just Latinos who are coming into their own, women are too.

“It's a new day when it comes to women," Jennifer added. "The world is realizing that women are not even coming into their own until they're in their 40s, that they have so much to offer. That you can stay in shape, that your life is not over once you have kids and it becomes only about your kids, that to be a great mother, or great parent or great woman in this world you have to be a great individual first, you know what I mean, and that's very empowering and we're all realizing this," she said.
