Early life

Jennifer Lynn Lopez was born on July 24, 1969, in New York City and was raised in the Castle Hill neighborhood of the Bronx.

Advertisement

Her parents, David López and Guadalupe Rodríguez, were born in Puerto Rico and moved to the mainland of the United States as children.

Lopez is a middle child; she has an older sister, Leslie, and a younger sister, Lynda.

 She was raised in a Catholic family; she attended Mass every Sunday and received a Catholic education, attending Holy Family School and the all-girls Preston High School.

Advertisement

In school, Lopez ran track on a national level, participated in gymnastics, and was a member of the softball team.

 She danced in school musicals and played a leading role in a production of Godspell.

Career

There was “lots of music” in the typically Puerto Rican household, and Lopez and her sisters were encouraged to sing, dance and create their own plays for family events.

At the age of five, she began taking dance lessons at Ballet Hispánico on the Upper West Side.

As a teenager, she learned flamenco, jazz and ballet at the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club and taught dance to younger students, including Kerry Washington.

 After graduating high school, Lopez had a part-time secretarial job at a law firm and studied business at New York’s Baruch College for one semester.

 At the age of 18, Lopez enrolled as a full-time student at Manhattan’s Phil Black Dance Studio, where she had already been taking night classes in jazz and tap dance.

 Her parents were unhappy with her decision to leave college to pursue a career as a professional dancer. Her mother asked her to move out of the family home and they stopped speaking for eight months.

 Lopez moved to Manhattan, sleeping in the dance studio’s office for the first few months.

Lopez’s first professional job came in 1989 when she spent five months touring Europe with the musical revue show Golden Musicals of Broadway.

She was the only member of the chorus not to have a solo and later characterized it as a pivotal moment where she realized the importance of a “tough skin” in the entertainment business. Lopez began by dancing in music videos and as back up dancer.

Advertisement

Lopez’s most high-profile job as a professional dancer was as a Fly Girl on the sketch comedy television series In Living Color, which starred comedians including Jamie Foxx and Jim Carrey.

 At the New York audition, the show’s choreographer, Rosie Perez, noticed that Lopez had “star quality” and “did not complain, not once” when asked to repeatedly perform the dance routine.

Music Career

Lopez’s debut single, “If You Had My Love”, was released in May 1999, as she began to ready her first album.

Advertisement

 Lopez became the first artist to top the Billboard Hot 100 with a debut single since Britney Spears did so with her single “…Baby One More Time” four months prior.

 Her debut album was named On the 6, to reflect the New York City Subway rail line connecting her home in the Bronx to work in Manhattan.

During production of the album, Lopez was made aware that she received her recording contract on the basis of her looks and an already established name in the entertainment industry, and she wanted to prove she had musical talent.

 Lopez’s musical success came as a surprise to critics; its launch made the “popular actor even more popular”. Both the music industry and the public became intrigued by “this woman who seemed to have so many different talents”.

 By the end of 1999, Lopez successfully converted herself from a film star to a pop star. She joined a select few in achieving this feat, becoming the first since Vanessa Williams (1992) and Martika (1989).

During the process of recording her second album, Lopez decided to tweak her image as she began to develop into a s!x symbol. She started going by J.Lo, something fans often called her in the years after director Oliver Stone coined the term on the set of the 1997 film U Turn. She subsequently named the album J.Lo. Released on January 23, 2001, it was a commercial success, debuting at number one on the US Billboard 200.
