Jennifer Lopez Talks Blazing Her Own Path

Jennifer Lopez: I also, very much believe… women in general, but also artists; they’re always putting you in a box. You know what I mean? It’s always like about… [Shows an example with her hands] You can only do this or only do that. And listen, if you’re only a singer, that’s fine and if you only want to act, that’s fine. But for me, I always felt like people always try to say, “Well if you’re”… you know, when I started acting, “You can’t record an album.” And I was like, “No, no, no really, I want to record an album. I really, I can do it. I can do it. I promise.” And then it was like; okay so then I got the chance to do that. And then it was like; okay I’ll do my live shows. Okay, I want to do branding. I want to create a perfume; you know I worked in a perfume store when I was sixteen and I have a lot of ideas! You know what I mean?

[The Real hosts laugh.]

Jennifer: So like everything I did…there was no box and there was no map for and so that was a good thing. That’s a good thing. You don’t, you don’t need so much to do something anyone’s done before. You can blaze your own path. You can do whatever you want to do.

About The Real

THE REAL is a daily, one-hour Emmy® and NAACP Image Award nominated talk show on Fox Television Stations and in national syndication (check local listings), with a rebroadcast on cable network BET. Led by bold, diverse and outspoken hosts – Adrienne Houghton, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley — these women reflect the home audience and unapologetically say what women are actually thinking. Their unique perspectives are brought to life through their candid conversations about topics ranging from their own personal lives to the news of the day to beauty, fashion and relationships. Emmy® nominated for Outstanding Talk Show/Entertainment in its second season, THE REAL is unlike other talk shows, since each of the hosts are admittedly a “work in progress,” and fearlessly invites the viewers into their lives. Their fresh points of view, youthful energy and passion have turned the traditional talk show on its head. Produced by Telepictures Productions and distributed by Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, The Real originates from Los Angeles. Rachel Miskowiec (Good Morning America, Katie, The Tyra Banks Show, Judge Hatchett, The Ricki Lake Show) is Executive Producer.
