Those who think they know everything about superstar Jennifer Lopez are in for a surprise or two when the documentary, “Jennifer Lopez: Her Life Her Journey” premieres on NUVOtv later this week.
“The people who are involved with the actual special, who have known me my whole life basically… my family and people I’ve worked with from the very beginning, my producing partner, my manager — even when they watch the special they were like, ‘Wow, I didn’t know that about you,’” Jennifer told Access Hollywood of the new program, airing July 18.
“It’s gonna be, I think, full of a lot of little, interesting nuggets,” she added.
One of the subjects covered in the program include the time Jennifer was homeless, after she left home to follow her dream – and not go to college like her mother wanted.
“I was homeless technically. I never slept on a bench, thank God. I never had to do that. When my mother and I had the falling out, which we delve into in this special a little bit — and you can see more of that — I asked to stay at the studio,” Jennifer told Access. “I was like, ‘I have nowhere to go. I’m homeless right now. Can I sleep on the couch?’ And that’s what I did. I slept there for months. … I think I stayed there until I got my first job and left on tour as a dancer.”
Jennifer said “Her Life Her Journey” will also look at some of her past romantic relationships.
“It talks about the relationships… because all of it’s intertwined, especially when you’re an artist. I think by the way, anybody in life, your personal life and your business life and the things that you do, it’s all kind of intertwined and one affects the other and the decisions that you make and you can’t tell the story – really tell the story – without going into those areas,” she said.
