Lopez spent her entire academic career in Catholic schools, finishing at the allgirls Preston High School, in the Bronx. She financed singing and dancing lessons for herself from the age of 19. After attending Baruch College for one semester, Lopez divided her time between working in a legal office, dance classes, and dance performances in Manhattan night clubs. After months of auditioning for dance roles, Lopez was selected as a dancer for various rap music videos, a 1990 episode of Yo! MTV Raps, and as a backup dancer for the New Kids on the Block and their performance of their song "Games" for the American Music Awards in 1991. After being rejected twice, she received a call from In Living Color asking her to audition again and gained her first regular high-profile job as a "Fly Girl" dancer on the television comedy program In Living Color in 1990. Soon after, Lopez became a backup dancer for Janet Jackson and made an appearance in her 1993 video "That’s the Way Love Goes".

Film and television
At the age of 16 Jennifer got a little break with a bit part in the film My Little Girl starring Mary Stuart Masterson. After a year and a half of auditioning with no success, Lopez went on a tour that sent her dancing across Japan. She had auditioned to be a Fly Girl for

the show In Living Color but she had been turned down twice before getting the job. Her first television job as an actress, was on the short-lived Fox television series South Central. The part of Lucille came her way because the producer of the show was married to one of the other fly girls, and he took notice of Lopez during a special Fox aired about the Fly Girls. South Central only survived one season, but she quickly resurfaced on television screens appearing as Melinda Lopez first in the short lived Second Chances series, then Hotel Malibu.[5] She then appeared on the made-for-television film Nurses on the Line: The Crash of Flight 7 as Rosie Romero. Lopez’s first serious screen role was in Gregory Nava’s 1995 drama My Family, playing the character of Young Maria in the 1920’s. After starring alongside Jimmy Smits and Edward James Olmos in My Family, Lopez stars in the action film Money Train opposite Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson.[6] In 1996, she beat out Ashley Judd and Lauren Holly for the supporting role in Francis Ford Coppola’s 1996 comedy Jack starring Robin Williams,[7] She then starred opposite Jack Nicholson in Bob Rafelson’s wellreceived noir thriller Blood and Wine. Lopez’s first big break came in 1997, when she was chosen to play the title role in Selena, a biopic of the Tejano pop singer Selena. Despite having previously worked with Nava on Mi Familia, Lopez was subjected to an intense auditioning process before landing the lead role of Selena. She earned widespread praise for her performance, including a Golden Globe Award for "Best Actress - Motion Picture Musical or Comedy" in 1998, and became the highest-paid Hispanic actress in history with her paycheck of $1 million or more for a film role.[8] Some of her other critically-acclaimed films include Out of Sight, The Cell, An Unfinished Life, and Shall We Dance?. Two independent films produced by Lopez were well-received at film festivals: El Cantante at the Toronto International Film Festival, and Bordertown at the Brussels film festival. Other modestly successful films include The Wedding Planner, Maid in Manhattan, Monster-in-Law, and Enough. Gigli, however, would be a critical and commercial disappointment. In August 2007, Lopez collaborated on the feature film, El Cantante, with her husband singer-actor Marc Anthony. The film is in English, with a

creative use of subtitles for songs with Spanish lyrics. On April 10, 2007 Lopez made an appearance as a mentor on American Idol.[9] Lopez also became the executive producer of the eight-episode reality show, DanceLife, which ran on MTV and began on January 15, 2007. Lopez helped select the show’s participants and made cameo appearances. She then served as executive producer of a miniseries broadcast on Univisión. Titled after her CD Como Ama Una Mujer, it ran in five episodes from October 30 to November 27, 2007, and starred Christian Borrero and Adriana Cruz.[10] Lopez signed a contract as star and executive producer of an unscripted reality series for TLC, a division of Discovery Communications Inc. The series will show the launching of her new fragrance,[11] and will not focus on her family.[12]

Box office standing and record sales
Lopez is one of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood and the highest-paid Latin actress in Hollywood history, though she’s never had a film grossing over $100 million in the U.S. Lopez appeared in the 2007 Guinness World Records as the most powerful actress. She was on the The Hollywood Reporter’s list of the top ten actress salaries in 2002, 2003, and 2004.[13] She received $15,000,000 for her role in Monster-in-Law. Her top-grossing film domestically is Maid in Manhattan which grossed $94,011,225, and her most successful international film, Shall We Dance?, grossed $112,238,000 at the international box office. Domestically, Shall We Dance? grossed $57,890,460 and a total of $170,128,460 worldwide. Lopez has sold over 48 million albums worldwide.[14] Lopez made the 2007 Forbes magazine’s list of The 20 Richest Women In Entertainment, ranking ninth. Her wealth is estimated to be $110 million.[15][16]

1999, and reached the top ten of the Billboard 200. The album featured the Billboard Hot 100 number-one lead single, "If You Had My Love",, as well as the top ten hit "Waiting for Tonight". The album also featured a Spanish language, Latin-flavored duet "No Me Ames" with Marc Anthony (who later would become her husband.) Though "No Me Ames" never had a commercial release, it reached number one on the U.S. Hot Latin Tracks. On the 6 featured guest artists such as Big Pun and Fat Joe on the track "Feelin’ So Good", which had moderate success on the Billboard Hot 100. "Let’s Get Loud", the final single, earned Lopez a Grammy Award nomination in the "Best Dance Recording" category in 2001 Grammy Awards.[17] "Waiting for Tonight" was nominated for the same category the previous year.[18] "No Me Ames" received two nominations at the 2000 Latin Grammy Awards — "Best Pop Duo/Group with Vocal Performance" and "Best Music Video".

to the remixing effort, releasing J to tha L-O!: The Remixes, on February 5, 2002. This album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, becoming the first remix album in history to debut at the top on the chart.[20] Featured artists on J to tha L-O!: The Remixes included P. Diddy, Fat Joe, and Nas, and the album included rare dance and hip hop remixes of past singles. It is the third alltime biggest-selling remix album in the world, after Michael Jackson’s Blood on the Dance Floor: HIStory in the Mix (1997) and Madonna’s You Can Dance (1987).

This Is Me... Then (2002)
On November 26, 2002, Lopez released her third studio album, This Is Me... Then, which reached number two on the Billboard 200 and spawned four singles: "Jenny from the Block" (featuring Jadakiss and Styles P), which reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100; "All I Have" (featuring LL Cool J), which spent multiple weeks at number one; "I’m Glad"; and "Baby I Love U!". The album included a cover of Carly Simon’s 1978 "You Belong to Me". The video for "I’m Glad" recreated scenes from the 1983 film Flashdance, leading to a lawsuit over copyright infringement, which was later dismissed.[21][22]

J. Lo (2001)
Lopez’s second album, J. Lo, was released on January 23, 2001 and debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. When her film The Wedding Planner achieved number one shortly after, Lopez become the first actresssinger to have a film and an album at number one in the same week.[19] The lead single, "Love Don’t Cost a Thing", was her first number-one single in the United Kingdom and took her into the top five on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. She followed it up with "Play" which gave her another top twenty hit on the Billboard Hot 100 and reached number three in the UK. Her next two singles were "I’m Real" and "Ain’t It Funny" which were quickly rising up the charts. To capitalize on this, Lopez asked The Inc. Records (then known as Murder Inc.) to remix both songs, which featured rap artists Ja Rule (on both) and Caddillac Tah (on the "Ain’t It Funny" remix). Both remixes reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for several weeks. She rereleased J. Lo on her thirty-second birthday with the remix of "I’m Real" as a bonus track. Also, "Si Ya Se Acabó" was released in Spain, due to the success "Que Ironia".

Rebirth (2005)
After a year away from the music scene, Lopez released her fourth studio album, Rebirth, on March 1, 2005. Although debuting and peaking at number two on the Billboard 200, the album quickly fell off the charts. It spawned the hit "Get Right", which reached the top fifteen in the U.S. and became her second Platinum hit (after "If You Had My Love"). "Get Right" was also successful in the UK, becoming her second number-one single there. The second single, "Hold You Down", which featured Fat Joe, reached number sixty-four on the U.S. Hot 100; it peaked at number six in the UK and ascended to the top twenty in Australia. Another song, "Cherry Pie", was slated for a release in late 2005, but the plans to make a video were canceled as the album sales were definitely too weak and the promotion budget exceeded. It was released to radio stations in Spain. Rebirth was certified Platinum in the U.S. by the RIAA. Lopez was then featured on LL Cool J’s single "Control Myself", which was released

"Mile In These Shoes". "Do It Well" was released as the lead single and reached the top 20 in many countries. "Hold It, Don’t Drop It" was released as the second single in only in some countries from Europe. The third single was set to be the title track "Brave", and it was even posted on Michael Haussman’s official website that filming of the music video for the single had completed. However, neither the single nor the video ever surfaced most likely due to low album sales.

Como Ama Una Mujer (2007)
Lopez officially released her first full Spanish-language album, called Como Ama una Mujer, on March 27, 2007 in the U.S. and March 23, 2007 in Europe. Her husband, singer Marc Anthony, produced the album with Estefano, except for "Qué Hiciste", which Anthony co-produced with Julio Reyes. The album peaked at number ten on the U.S. Billboard 200, number one on the U.S. Top Latin Albums (for four straight weeks), number one on the U.S. Latin Pop Albums (for seven straight weeks), and number one hundred and thirty-one in the UK. The album did well in Europe peaking at number three on the albums chart, mainly due to the big success in countries like Switzerland, Italy, Spain, France, Belgium, Greece, Germany, Austria, and Portugal. The lead single, "Qué Hiciste" (Spanish for "What Did You Do"), was officially released to radio stations in January 2007. Since then, it has peaked at eighty-six on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and number one on the Hot Latin Songs and the Hot Dance Club Play. It also went top ten on the European chart. The video for the song was the first Spanish-language video to peak at number one on MTV’s Total Request Live daily countdown. The second single released is called "Me Haces Falta" and the third is "Por Arriesgarnos". Lopez won an American Music Award as the Favorite Latin Artist in 2007. Como Ama una Mujer holds the record for the best opening week internet sales for a Spanish album. With Como Ama Una Mujer, Jennifer Lopez is one of the few performers to debut in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 with a Spanish album.

2009-present
Several websites have confirmed that Lopez needs to release one more album to fulfill her current record contract with Epic Records. Several music retailers listed a greatest hits album to be released in 2009. It is expected to be released around the summer time to celebrate Lopez’s decade in the music industry. In February a new song titled, "Hooked On You", was circulated on the internet. In March, Lopez went on to publish the follow message on her official website: "I’m always excited about my music and this is one of a few tracks I’m currently working on. I’m flattered by everyone’s interest in the track and really excited for you to hear the real thing! Check back soon for more information on my next release".[24] On May 12, 2009 another new recording titled "What Is Love" surfaced. It was produced by D’Mile, written by Wynter Gordon. That day, Gordon mentioned the song on her official MySpace and later clarified what she wrote: "apparently a blogger took this as a dis towards J-Lo. It’s not. I respect and admire J-Lo and I was honored for her to cut my song. The "lifetime TV special" comment was directed at the leak. The song was not properly serviced. It’s not mixed, mastered, or finished but it’s out for public consumption and opinion. That’s why I’m angry".[25] Later the same day a further recording titled "One Love" leaked, it was also produced by D’Mile.[26]

Brave (2007)
Just over six months later, on October 9, 2007, Lopez released her fifth English studio album (sixth studio album overall). She collaborated with producers Midi Mafia, J. R. Rotem, Lynn and Wade and Ryan Tedder, with Rotem working on some tracks with writing partner Evan "Kidd" Bogart.[23] Earlier, on August 26, 2007, ABC premiered a promo for the fourth season of Desperate Housewives, featuring a snippet of the song

Billboard Magazine reported, on July 24, 2007, that Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony would "co-headline" a worldwide tour called "Juntos en Concierto" starting in New Jersey on September 29.[27] Tickets went on sale August 10. The tour was a mix of her current music, older tunes and Spanish music. In a later press release, Lopez announced a detailed itinerary. The tour launched September 28, 2007 at the Mark G. Etess Arena and ended on November 7, 2007 at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida.

marketed a "Glow" line of body lotions and bronzing products. For the Christmas season of 2005, she launched another fragrance, "Live by Jennifer Lopez". For 2006 Valentine’s Day, "Miami Glow" was replaced by yet another "Glow" spin-off, "Love at First Glow by J.Lo". Her following fragrance, "Live Luxe", was released in August 2006, with "Glow After Dark" following in January 2007. Lopez owns the film and television production company Nuyorican Productions, which she co-founded with her manager, Benny Medina. Dancer and ex-husband Cris Judd once had a stake in the company when he and Lopez were still married. Lopez is a spokesperson for Lux shampoo in Japan, appearing in the product’s television commercials. Lopez has been recognized by People en Español magazine as both the cover subject for the "50 Most Beautiful" issue in 2006 and the "100 Most Influential Hispanics" issue in February 2007.

Business
Lopez launched a clothing line in 2003. Named JLO by Jennifer Lopez, the line included different types of clothing for young women, including jeans, T-shirts, coats, belts, purses, and lingerie, a jewelry line,[28] and an accessory line that includes hats, gloves, and scarves.[29] Lopez participated in the Louis Vuitton Winter 2003 campaign. In 2005, she launched a new clothing line called Sweetface. In late 2007, Lopez retired JLO by Jennifer Lopez and launched a new juniors’ line called JustSweet.[30] Her fashion lines have featured at many New York Fashion Week events. Lopez’s frequent use of animal fur in her clothing lines and personal wardrobe has brought the scorn of people concerned with animal rights.[31] At the Los Angeles premiere of Monster-in-Law, more than one hundred protesters from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) held a demonstration to highlight their concerns.[32] Lopez told a radio DJ she was open to being educated on the topic. On April 12, 2002, Lopez opened a Cuban restaurant in the South Lake district of Pasadena, California named Madre’s. A media sensation was creating when during a press shoot for the fancy restaurant, a mysterious man appeared out of the sidelines and gave Lopez a floral arrangement from Ben Affleck, even as then-husband Cris Judd stood next to her. Lopez was widely criticized for what appeared to be infidelity on her part. Lopez has ventured in the perfume industry, with her debut "Glow by J.Lo". In October 2003, Lopez introduced a perfume called "Still", having revisit "Glow" the previous year by creating a limited edition spinoff, "Miami Glow by J.Lo", in homage to her adopted hometown of Miami. Lopez also

Relationships
Ojani Noa
Lopez’s first marriage was to Cuban-born Ojani Noa[33] on February 22, 1997. Lopez met Noa while he worked as a waiter at a Miami restaurant. They divorced in January 1998. Lopez later employed Noa as the manager of her Pasadena restaurant Madre’s in April 2002, but he was fired in October 2002. After Noa sued Lopez over the termination, they drew up a confidentiality agreement.[34] In April 2006, Lopez sued to prevent her exhusband, Noa, from publishing a book containing personal details about their short marriage, contending it violated their confidentiality agreement.[35] In August 2007, a court-appointed arbitrator issued a permanent injunction forbidding Ojani Noa from "criticizing, denigrating, casting in a negative light or otherwise disparaging" Jennifer Lopez. She was awarded $545,000 in compensatory damages, which included nearly $300,000 in legal fees and almost $48,000 in arbitration costs. Noa was also ordered to hand over all copies of materials related to the book to Lopez or her attorney.[16]

that manner. Publicists announced a permanent split on January 20, 2004. Affleck has refused to speak of his relationship with Lopez, only citing intense media attention as the cause of the break-up. Their relationship was parodied on the South Park episode "Fat Butt and Pancake Head", which aired on April 16, 2003. There was a mild media furor as to whether Lopez would give Affleck back his ring after the break-up. Lopez did return it and it was discreetly placed for sale at the original jewelers. Affleck has since married actress Jennifer Garner on July 1, 2005 and they have a daughter, Violet, born on December 1, 2005. In 2003 Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck acted together in the film "Gigli" and in the 2004 film "Jersey Girl".

Sean Combs
Lopez next had a two-and-a-half-year relationship with hip-hop mogul Sean Combs. On December 27, 1999, Lopez and Combs were at Club New York, a midtown Manhattan nightclub, when gunfire erupted between Combs’ entourage and another group. Lopez and Combs were being driven away from the scene when they were chased and stopped by the police.[36] A stolen gun was found in the front seat of their vehicle.[37] Lopez was charged with felony gun possession, but the charges were dropped,[38] as she was riding in the back seat at the time.[39] Stress over the trial and pursuit by the press multiplied their problems, and Lopez terminated her involvement with Combs one year later. Lopez was served with a subpoena in June 2008 to testify about the incident in a deposition August 6, 2008 but the deposition did not occur because Lopez had “nothing to contribute to the case”.[40]

Marc Anthony

Cris Judd
Her second marriage was to her former backup dancer, Cris Judd. She met Judd while filming the music video for her single "Love Don’t Cost a Thing." The two were married on September 29, 2001, at a home in a Los Angeles suburb. Their marriage effectively ended in June 2002, when Lopez began publicly dating Ben Affleck.[41] They were officially divorced in January 2003.

Lopez and Marc Anthony at the 2006 Time 100 gala event. Shortly after her break-up with Affleck, Lopez was seen with singer Marc Anthony, a longtime friend with whom she had worked in music videos. They had briefly dated in the late 1990s, before his first marriage and her second. Lopez and Anthony were recording a duet together in early 2004, for Lopez’s thenupcoming film Shall We Dance?. In October 2003, Anthony became separated, for the second time, from his first wife, former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres, with whom he has two children. Torres filed for divorce three months later. Lopez and Anthony married in a quiet home wedding on June 5, 2004, four days after his divorce from Torres was final. Their ceremony was private and unpublicized. In attendance were an estimated forty close relatives and friends. On the morning of the wedding, however, the media was tipped off and circled her backyard in helicopters. Photographs, alerting the rest of the world, soon followed. Reports fueled rumors that

Ben Affleck
Lopez’s relationship with actor Ben Affleck was highly publicized, with the media dubbing the couple "Bennifer". Lopez announced her engagement to Affleck in November 2002, after Affleck gave her a six-carat pink diamond ring worth a reported $1.2 million.[42] Lopez promised interviewers that Affleck was indeed "the one", and that they would soon have a family. The marriage, planned for September 14, 2003 in Santa Barbara, California, was called off just hours before the event. During the week before the scheduled nuptials, Affleck had been seen by press carousing at a strip club in Vancouver with friends. The media blitz intensified when it was Lopez’s own sister who called in live radio to tell Lopez where her fiance had been the previous night. Lopez would only respond by saying it was a terrible way to begin the day, finding out about Affleck’s behavior in

Lopez was pregnant but this was not the case. Lopez’s guests had been invited to an "afternoon party" at Lopez’s house and had not been made aware that they were actually going to her wedding. The couple had planned not to publicize their marriage early on, allowing more privacy and time together in an otherwise intrusive environment. Days after the wedding, Anthony refused to comment on their marriage during interviews which were scheduled earlier to promote a new album "Amar Sin Mentiras" (To Love Without Lies).[43] In February 2005, Lopez confirmed the marriage, and added that "everyone knows. It’s not a secret".[44] A few months later, Anthony’s daughter, Ariana, appeared at the end of Lopez’s music video "Get Right" as her little sister. Regarding his marriage and family life, Anthony maintains a private and sometimes defensive stance with the media, which has influenced Lopez to set some boundaries with interviewers. On December 29, 2008, Daily News reported that Lopez and Anthony planned to announce their divorce on Valentine’s Day.[45] This allegation was put to rest by her publicist stating that "There is no merit to the article".[46]

Jennifer Lopez
confirmed on February 5, 2008, she was expecting twins.[50] Lopez gave birth on February 22, 2008 to fraternal twins, a girl and a boy, Emme Maribel Muñiz, and Maximilian "Max" David Muñiz. The twins were introduced in the March 11, 2008 issue of People magazine for which the magazine paid $6 million.[3][51]

Human rights advocacy
In May 2001, Lopez attended a White House benefit for UNICEF, where she assisted magician David Copperfield with an illusion which gave the appearance that she had been sawed into six pieces.[52] On February 14, 2007, Lopez received the Artists for Amnesty International award "in recognition of her work as producer and star of Bordertown, a film exposing the ongoing murders of hundreds of women in the border city of Juárez, Mexico". Nobel Peace Prize winner José Ramos-Horta presented the award to Lopez at the Berlin International Film Festival. She also received special recognition and thanks from Norma Andrade, co-founder of Nuestras Hijas de Regreso a Casa A.C. ("May Our Daughters Return Home, Civil Association"), an organization consisting of mothers and families of the murdered women of Juárez.

Scientology
It was reported that Lopez and Anthony were taking professional business meetings at the Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre in Hollywood, California, in late 2006. It was also rumored that Lopez and Anthony became Scientologists during that period with the help of Angelo Pagan, the husband of "King of Queens" actress and Scientologist Leah Remini.[47] Just prior to those reports, Lopez said to NBC, "I’m not a Scientologist, I was raised Catholic. But it’s funny the way people come at it. To me it’s so strange. These are some of the best people I’ve ever met in my life." She added, "My dad has been a Scientologist for 20 years. He’s the best man that I know in my life and so, it’s weird to me that people want to paint it in a negative way."[48]
