Gorgeous For The Masses
Jennifer Lynn Lopez was born in the Castle Hill section of The Bronx on July 24, 1969.
She is the middle of three musically-inclined sisters, Leslie Lopez, a homemaker, and Lynda Lopez, a DJ on New York’s WKTU, a VH1 VJ, and a morning news show correspondent on New York’s Channel 11.
Jennifer always dreamed of being a multi-tasking superstar. Jennifer’s parents, Guadalupe Rodriguez and David Lopez, were both born in Ponce, Puerto Rico, the second largest Puerto Rican city.
The two were then brought to the continental United States during their childhoods and, eventually, met while living in New York City.
As a child, Jennifer enjoyed a variety of musical genres, mainly Afro-Caribbean rhythms like salsa, merengue and bachata, and mainstream music like pop, hip-hop and R&B. Although she loved music, the film industry also intrigued her.
