Biography

From humble beginnings as a dancer in The Bronx, Jenny from the block has conquered the worlds of Hollywood, pop and fashion to become a booty shaking, global superstar. First spotted as a back-up dancer for Janet Jackson, Lopez starred in the hit movies Selena, Anaconda and Out Of Sight but was inspired by then boyfriend Sean 'Puff Daddy' Combs to turn to music with debut album From The Six (1999). Quickly becoming a tabloid favourite thanks to a high profile romance with actor Ben Affleck which saw the couple dubbed "Benniffer", she went on to score huge hits with the singles If You Had My Love, Love Don't Cost A Thing and I'm Real and topped the US charts with second album J.Lo (2001). Fashion, jewellery and lingerie lines turned J.Lo into a successful entrepreneur before third husband Marc Anthony produced the albums Rebirth (2005) and Spanish language record Como ama una Mujer (2007). Still acting and singing, Lopez gave birth to twins in 2008 and became a judge on American Idol in 2010. Artist biography compiled by BDS/West 10. All rights reserved
