The “Heart Attack” singer once said that Bruce Springsteen was her key musical role model and during an interview with New York Daily News, she furthered explained why he was. “I saw a DVD where he was basically on a stage in the middle of the arena, with his band - no cool lighting, no nothing. And everyone knew the songs and they were just so focused on the music. That's what I want to do one day. But right now, I'm not at that point.”


5. Jennifer Lopez

Chrissie Fit isn't the only Latina in Hollywood who looks up to Ms. Moreno. "I was really moved watching West Side Story as a young girl and seeing Puerto Rican stars in it," Lopez told Cosmopolitan for Latinas. "Even though it wasn't the best depiction of us, they still have the passion and love that I relate to -- not to mention the singing and dancing! Rita Moreno became a hero to me.”
