J Loâ€™s Pre-Fame Diet Was Eating One Slice of Pizza Every Day
Pretty much every creative type will cop to doing some pretty sus things when theyâ€™re broke, and Jennifer Lopez, who didn’t hook up with Drake and maybe isnâ€™t really hooking up with A-Rod either, is no exception.
During NBCâ€™s Summer Press Day,Â J Lo summoned up the strength to relive her broke early days to promote her new show World of Dance, which is hosted by herself, a human Ken doll, Channing Tatumâ€™s wife, and Ne-Yo.
â€œI always consider myself as a dancer first,â€ J Lo told a swarm of reporters. â€œI became a singer and actress after dancing. For me, itâ€™s so part of who I am.â€
Right. Donâ€™t be fooled by the rocks that you got, youâ€™re still, youâ€™re still Jenny from the Block.
Donâ€™t worry, we remember.
â€œI remember only getting to have one piece of pizza every day when I was a dancer. Thatâ€™s how I lived. I did that for a couple of years before I got my first big job. I wouldnâ€™t trade it for the world. For me, coming from that struggle, this is a dream come true for me. I donâ€™t say that lightly.â€
Now, hold up J Lo.
What do you mean by â€œI remember only getting to have one piece of pizza every day?â€
Did you mean the only food you ate all day every day was a single slice of pizza, because if so that sounds like a GREAT way to faint in the middle of every audition, thereby making sure you stay in the vicious cycle of not booking jobs and just eating a slice of pizza every day.
Or did you mean that for one meal a day, all you had was a single slice of pizza, which sounds like a sketchy, but ultimately effective way to stay skinny, especially when youâ€™re young, working out all the time and are genetically blessed.
How no reporter in the room pressed for a follow-up question is truly astounding to me.
You have one job.
