Actress, singer, dancer and fashion designer Jennifer Lopez was born in the Bronx, NY, on July 24, 1969, into a Puerto Rican family. At the age of 19 she went into singing and dancing, financing the lessons from her own pocket. In 1990 Lopez got her first regular job of dancer on the television comedy program In Living Color. Soon after, Lopez became a backup dancer for Janet Jackson and made an appearance in her 1993 video That's The Way Love Goes. In 1995 she became famous after the acting duet with Wesley Snipes in Money Train. Since that Lopez played in several films, including the title role in 1997's Selena. After co-starring with George Clooney in 1998's acclaimed Out of Sight, Lopez became the highest-paid Latina actress in Hollywood history.
Next summer Lopez refreshed in mind the dream of becoming a singer and released her debut pop album, On The 6. The disc featured the irresistable lead single If You Had My Love and the dancing hit Waiting For Tonight. On The 6 also scored a Spanish language track No Me Ames, where Lopez sang with Marc Anthony (who would later become her husband). Lopez's second album J. Lo, was released in 2001 and debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. A big part of this success was due to the passionate hit Love Don't Cost A Thing. The same time Jennifer was successfully continuing her acting career. In 2002 she released J To Tha L-O!: The Remixes (it became the first remix album in history to debut at the top on the chart) and This Is Me...Then, featuring one more big hit, R&B single Jenny From The Block.
As for the private life of the diva, though the previous two marriages were not a success and relations with Ben Affleck created much more noise than her recording career and finished with a flop, Lopez married a famous Latino-American singer Marc Anthony in 2005. The same year she released her follow-up Rebirth, featuring the doubtless hit Get Right. It was followed by The Spanish-language album Como Ama Una Mujer in 2007. It had an extremely emotional beautiful single Que Hiciste. The same year Lopez returned to Pop, R&B and Hip Hop sounds and recorded the new English language album Brave. For now the celebrity successfully continues her restaurant and design businesses, planning to release a new perfume Desire and a new clothes line Justsweet. Jennifer also prepares for the Brave accompanying tour and rejects rumours about her pregnancy from the famous husband.
