Jennifer Lopez was, believe it or not, “homeless” just months before she had her big break. The 43-year-old superstar was cast as a Fly Girl dancer on the sketch comedy show “In Living Color” in 1991. But before she took on her first major gig in Hollywood, Lopez reveals she was living rough…
“My mom and I butted heads. I didn’t want to go to college — I wanted to try dance full-time. So she and I had a break. I started sleeping on the sofa in the dance studio. I was homeless, but I told her, ‘This is what I have to do.’ A few months later, I landed a job dancing in Europe. When I got back, I booked ‘In Living Color.’ I became a Fly Girl and moved to L.A. It all happened in a year.”, she explained to W magazine.
