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."

New Survey Says Single Houstonians Don’t Want Long-Term Relationships

Aug 28 2014 12:29pm CDT | Source: Houston's Hot Hits

If there’s one thing I have learned in my short time in Houston it’s that people love dating apps AND going out for drinks. I’m assuming it’s because of the massive amount of people in the city and all the surrounding areas….the chances of finding someone you like on a dating app is greater here than other places. Most people work so darn much they don’t have time to go out and meet other singles as often as they’d like so the dating apps let them do it from their couch. One ...
