New Yorkers: Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez, Born and Raised in The Bronx
There’s no denying that Jennifer Lopez is proud of her Big Apple roots. The Puerto Rican entertainer, who was born and raised in The Bronx, proudly sang about her upbringing in her 2002 hit single “Jenny from the Block.” “Used to have a little now I have a lot; No matter where I go I know where I came from,” sings Lopez about her modest upbringing. And even though her rock collection has dramatically increased in the years since the song was released, la Lopez swears fame hasn’t changed her. And she even returned to “the block” in her “My World” commercial for Fiat, which depicts Lopez leaving Manhattan and driving through The Bronx neighborhood where she grew up.
