Jennifer Lopez is an American pop star, singer, and actress best known by her stage name J.Lo. From her early days singing and dancing in the Little League, Jennifer Lopez has developed into one of the world’s top entertainers. In the early 1990s, Lopez started appearing in films, often playing a character named “Chloe” in the romantic musical It’s a Wonderful Life. She went on to star in the movies Happy Gilmore, Saturday Night Fever, and Grease.
After enjoying a successful period in which she was nominated for an Academy Award for her performance in It’s a Wonderful Life, Lopez pursued a number of other successful acting careers. She appeared in the films’ Everyone Loves Raymond, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, The Perfect Team, and A Few Good Men. She also began a long-term contract with Disney, where she voiced several characters in the movies Finding Nemo, Coco, and Finding Fire. In addition to her role in Disney movies, Lopez also received critical acclaim for her turns as a judge on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, as well as guest appearances on Law and Order. These endeavors earned Jennifer an astounding eight Golden Globe Awards, including Best Actress in a Drama or Movie.
Unfortunately, Lopez’s career was cut short by the tragic accident which claimed the life of her close friend and fellow actress, Debra Wilson. Her untimely death from a drug overdose was mourned by both her family and friends. A memoir written by Lopez’s son, Damon, provides the only glimpse into the life of his famous mother. The memoir provides insights into the inner workings of the entertainer, as well as intimate details of their home life. While many of us might discount the memoir as fiction, the facts discovered in the book lend more credibility to the veracity of Damon’s recollections. The memoir is an interesting view of a celebrity who is not always the focus of our eyes.
Lopez’s son Damon also reveals the inner workings of the entertainer, revealing how often his mother worried that he was bored and even considered leaving him to live with his abusive father. When it came time to look for a way out of the home, however, Damon points out that Jennifer Lopez fought hard to make his own family happy. She refused to give up her acting career and, with the help of a friend, fought to save her reputation by starring in movies once she no longer had the chance to succeed on the small screen. Though Lopez seems to take credit for rescuing her career, the fact is that some of her roles were performed by someone else. Regardless, she never stopped working, whether she was enjoying the glitzy life of a Hollywood celebrity or just trying to support her son. Jennifer Lopez definitely has the inside track when it comes to being a mother and working in an ever-changing entertainment industry.
The biographer provides an inside view of the inner workings of a woman who has been married three times, two of those marriages ending in divorce. While Jennifer Lopez certainly had made mistakes in her past, the writer will also argue that the “Jennifer Lopez the Virgin” is more a myth than anything else. Yes, some of her relationships with men may have been less than romantic but Lopez always remained true to herself. In fact, the author will show you that once Jennifer Lopez decided that her only calling is acting, she pursued a fulfilling career and has been extremely successful at it.
The “Jennifer Lopez the Virgin” is sure to be panned by critics and fans of Jennifer Lopez as well as by family and friends who are familiar with her life. However, this is a book that will make everyone involved, especially Jennifer Lopez fans, think about their own childhoods and how they felt about going from child to adult. The author does provide a positive perspective on her life, although you might feel differently if you disagree with certain aspects of the story. Still, this is definitely a must read book for any Jennifer Lopez fan.
