Jennifer Lopez


This Puerto Rican triple threat has been on American radars for decades now, but some of us still remember Jennifer Lopez, dancer on “In Living Color”, or Jennifer Lopez, the actress who played Selena. We’re so used to seeing Lopez in her music videos, television appearances, and movie roles, that it’s hard to remember a time when she wasn’t a cultural icon. She followed up on her initial movie and music success with near-simultaneous releases of her second album, “On the 6” and her starring role in “The Wedding Planner”. With the success of both, it was impossible to deny that Lopez was an artist to be reckoned with in (at least) two arenas.
