It’s definitely not easy trying to make it in the real world… especially when you are trying to make it big as a famous singer, actor, dancer, whatever it is… it’t not easy. Even for people that are high up now, like Jennifer Lopez had it tough. She revealed she lived on just one slice of pizza a day as a struggling dancer before making it big.
The entertainer opened up about her early days in showbiz during a press day for NBC in Los Angeles on Monday, March 20, where she chatted about her new dance reality competition show, World of Dance.
“I remember only getting to have one piece of pizza every day when I was a dancer,” said the Bronx native, who started out as a Fly Girl on the sketch comedy classicIn Living Color. “That’s how I lived. I did that for a couple of years before I got my first big job.”
But she said those tough early days of pinching pennies and waiting for her big break taught her not to take her success for granted. “I wouldn’t trade it for the world,” she said. “For me, coming from that struggle, this is a dream come true for me. I don’t say that lightly.”
