Jennifer Lopez introduced her 14-year-old daughter Emme using gender neutral pronouns during a performance in Los Angeles, while Elon Musk’s transgender daughter renounced his name this week.
Emme, the child of Lopez and ex-husband Marc Anthony, joined her mother to perform a duet at the LA Dodgers Foundation Blue Diamond Gala. The Thursday event marked Emme’s first time returning to the stage beside the “Selena” star, since joining her Super Bowl halftime show at the beginning of 2020.
“The last time we performed together was in a big stadium like this, and I ask them to sing with me all the time, and they won’t,” Lopez said in her introduction. “So this is a very special occasion.”

She added that “they are very, very busy. Booked. And pricey,” but “worth every single penny because they’re my favorite duet partner of all time,” according to Insider.
While Lopez’s daughter was happy to perform alongside her parent, Tesla CEO Elon Musk was rejected by his child on Monday, when his transgender daughter filed to change her name.
TMZ reported that 18-year-old Xavier Musk filed legal documents to change her name to Vivian Jenna Wilson, and the switch-up has as much to do with her new gender identity as it does with excommunicating Musk.
Wilson listed her official reason for the name change as, “Gender Identity and the fact that I no longer live with or wish to be related to my biological father in any way, shape or form.”
Wilson chose to take the surname of her mother, Canadian author Justine Wilson, who was married to Musk in 2000 and divorced him in September 2008.
The former couple had six children together, including twins Vivian and Griffin, followed by triplets Damon, Saxon, and Kai in 2006. Their eldest son, Nevada, died from sudden infant death syndrome at ten weeks old in 2002.
