Jennifer Lopez was homeless as a teen

Jul 9 2013, 8:30pm CDT | by

Jennifer Lopez used to be homeless.

The 'Dance Again' hitmaker, 43, who has five-year-old twins Max and Emme with her ex-husband Marc Anthony, often slept in a dance studio as a teenager after having arguments with her mother about her career plans.

She told W magazine: "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."

Despite enjoying her newfound freedom, Jennifer initially hated living in Los Angeles after relocating there from the Bronx, New York.

She explained: "I hated L.A. I was asking, 'Where's the store for milk? Don't you guys walk on the street?' Now I love Los Angeles, but it doesn't give me strength the way the Bronx did. All the strength that I needed for life, I got from that neighborhood."

Jennifer, who is dating her former back-up dancer Casper Smart, 25, also revealed she is eager to pass on her ambition and work ethic to her children.

She said: "I think a lot about teaching my kids to work hard. I've learned something about kids - they don't do what you say; they do what you do. I watched my parents. My dad worked nights, and I was aware of how much he was doing for us. My mom was a Tupperware lady and also worked at the school. I always felt that I couldn't let them down. And I had a natural discipline from early on. I was always training for something.

"I can remember dancing and singing in front of the mirror in my bedroom. I've always had dreams - the dreams have just gotten bigger."

KIRSTIE ALLEY & MAKSIM CHMERKOVSKIY Former ‘DWTS’ Partners No Longer Speaking

Jul 31 2014 9:30am CDT | Source: I'm Not Obsessed

Former ‘Dancing with the Stars’ pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley have been paired up on the show twice, so you know they must’ve been pretty close at one point. Check out the pics in the gallery after the break: they genuinely seemed to share a bond (not necessarily a romantic one). Now, however, Maks says he and Kirstie are no longer speaking.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy shunned by Kirstie Alley for being friends with Leah Remini

Jul 31 2014 9:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Maksim Chmerkovskiy recently announced that he’s leaving his position as a pro on Dancing with The Stars. He’s left before for a couple of seasons and returned but apparently this is permanent. I guess that explains his very PR-friendly maybe-romance with Jennifer Lopez. (Thanks to Kaiser for reminding me of that because I honestly forgot.) Maksim has to raise his profile so he can move on to whatever he’s going to do next, maybe in another role on DWTS or maybe some ...
