J Lo’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 they’re broke, and Jennifer Lopez, who didn’t hook up with Drake and maybe isn’t really hooking up with A-Rod either, is no exception.

During NBC’s Summer Press Day,  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 Tatum’s wife, and Ne-Yo.

“I always consider myself as a dancer first,” J Lo told a swarm of reporters. “I became a singer and actress after dancing. For me, it’s so part of who I am.”

Right. Don’t be fooled by the rocks that you got, you’re still, you’re still Jenny from the Block.

Don’t worry, we remember.

She continued:

“I remember only getting to have one piece of pizza every day when I was a dancer. That’s how I lived. I did that for a couple of years before I got my first big job. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. For me, coming from that struggle, this is a dream come true for me. I don’t say that lightly.”

Now, hold up J Lo.

What do you mean by “I remember only getting to have one piece of pizza every day?”

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 you’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.

Thanks, journalism.

You have one job.
