MTV will honor Shakira with the Video Vanguard Award during the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards on Sept. 12 at Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, the network announced Monday.
The Colombian-born singer and songwriter will be the first South American artist to receive the lifetime achievement honor established in 1984 for music artists and music video directors. Shakira is the second Latina to be given the award. Bronx native Jennifer Lopez — who is of Puerto Rican heritage — was honored in 2018.
