‘I grew up with holes in my shoes’
American singer-actor Jennifer Lopez (right) can afford the best of labels today, but she hasn’t forgotten her modest roots of growing up in The Bronx neighbourhood of New York. The actor has said in the past that she had to share a bedroom with her two sisters during their growing up days.
Lopez who has just come out with her new shoe collaboration with Giuseppe Zanotti said, “I grew up with holes in my shoes. So this is very special to me, to be able to create such beautiful shoes with an artist like Giuseppe,” said Lopez. “He gets me. I get him, and that’s why he’s a genius,” she added.
“I just love what I do. I feel very fortunate. To now be here launching my own shoe collection with an amazing artist, and being able to work with great people, and do what I love, that’s where I get my stamina. I live with a lot of gratitude,” she said. As Jennifer balances her work and family, some wonder how she manages it.
She said, “My family is my stability. They’re so solid for me. When you think of shoes you think of being grounded. There was a connection there for me. They keep me grounded.”
The actor recently confirmed her relationship with American rapper Drake. The two shared a cosy picture after New Years.
