Jennifer Lopez Ate Worse Than a College Student Before She Got Famous

Jenny from the Block wasn’t joking about starting off from nothing. Her early days in the business, as a dancer, were a constant struggle. Considering that now she’s dating a former Yankees player and can afford all the pizza she wants, J Lo has done good. She recently told Fox News, during an NBC press junket for her new show:

“I remember only getting to have one piece of pizza every day when I was a dancer. That’s how I lived. I did that for a couple of years before I got my first big job. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. For me, coming from that struggle this is a dream come true for me. I don’t say that lightly.”

Lopez is executive producing and judging on a new NBC show World of Dance. It gives dancers a chance to compete for $1 million. She hopes to give dancers a brand new opportunity.

“To create an opportunity for dancers was the best thing I could have ever done. It just reminded me of all the reasons why I love dance.”

The show, which also has Jenna Dewan Tatum, Ne-Yo and Derek Hough as judges, premieres May 8.
