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."

Worst Dressed Celebs Of The Week!

Sep 19 2014 11:09am CDT | Source: PerezHilton

Dressed down or up, this duo proved it's not difficult for an outfit to go wrong. Take Kim Kardashian for example, who simply tied up her crop top for an outing in El Lay, except paired with the stunning maxi skirt and luxe heels, it just didn't mesh! Even Jennifer Lopez couldn't quite get her look right this week and she was completely matched up! Hopefully we won't have any reason to get used to seeing these two on this list, but to see who else who couldn't handle t ...
