The first realm Jennifer Lopez conquered? The world of dance! She started out as a backup dancer for the boy band New Kids on the Block back in 1991 at age 22, parlaying that into an eventual gig as a Fly Girl on "In Living Color." Her dance roots came full circle in 2016 when she started executive producing and judging the dance competition series "World of Dance" on NBC.
Next, Jennifer Lopez set her sights on the acting world, picking up small parts before landing her big break in "Selena." The 1997 film brought the life of the late Mexican superstar to the big screen, with Jennifer signing on to portray the singer. The role netted her a reported $1 million salary, which also made her the highest paid Hispanic actress in history at the time. Breaking barriers!
Time to tackle the music industry! In May 1999, Jennifer Lopez released her first single, "If You Had My Love." The song topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart for five weeks and quickly went platinum. Her album "On the 6" followed that June and sold more than 8 million copies worldwide.
Jennifer Lopez Concert Evacuated Due to New York City Power Outage
Just after taking the stage, Jennifer Lopez was forced to call off her concert at New York City's Madison Square Garden Saturday night, July 13, amid a widespread power outage in the city. The outage was initiated by a transformer fire that started at West 64th Street and West End Avenue, according to the New York City Fire Department. "They just told me to get off stage," J. Lo said in a video clip on Twitter, filmed backstage at Madison Square Garden. "I was waiting there. Obviously all the power went out in the city and obviously here at Madison Square Garden.
The business of making headlines? Jennifer Lopez could teach a course on that one -- starting with her legendary red carpet moment at the 2000 Grammy Awards. Though she was nominated for her first Grammy that night (for best dance recording for "Waiting for Tonight"), the only thing people were talking about the next day was her iconic dress. The green palm-print Versace gown, which featured a plunging neckline that went past her belly button, garnered an insane amount of press, with onlookers marveling at just how much skin the star showed at the big event. The dress was the reason Google Image Search was even invented! The executive chairman of Google told Project Syndicate that it was the "most popular search query" they'd ever seen, resulting in the then-relatively new company creating an image search function.
One week in February 2001, Jennifer Lopez set a record that no one has been able to beat since!

She earned a reported $9 million for her work in the rom-com, propelling her to the ranks of the highest paid women in Hollywood.

Collectively, these two scents earned more than $300 million in 2003.

You can't be a mogul without delving into real estate! Jennifer Lopez has proven this time and again, but the most recent example was in October 2017 when she listed her two-story Manhattan penthouse for $27 million.

Instead, some "JLovers" took to the streets outside of Madison Square Garden to keep the party and the music going!
"AFTER THE BLACKOUT‼️" one concert-goer posted on Instagram. "This shows how much we all love you @JLO!!!! Right after the show got cancelled, JLovers from NYC decided to go outside and have a lil party blasting Jen's music!! They tried to stop the party but fans went right outside with it."
