On Tuesday, the judges from US reality show World of Dance shared stories about jobs they had before becoming celebrities. Jennifer Lopez revealed that long before she was performing at Super Bowl halftime shows, she was performing in retail.

As a teenager, Lopez worked in a clothing store selling jeans. While one can only assume she was a great salesperson, because she’s pretty great everything, she still managed to get fired.

“I just would dance down the aisles too much to the music,” The Jenny From The Block singer admitted.

Luckily for her, Lopez was able to turn that dancing into an incredibly successful career as a musician, actor, and entrepreneur.

Fellow judge Ne-Yo also talked about his pre-fame jobs, and it turns out that long before making people swoon for his music, he made a lot of burgers, pizzas, and tacos.

“I've worked every fast food job imaginable,” said Ne-Yo. “McDonalds, Burger King, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, all of them. And none of them for longer than two weeks.”

Jennifer Lopez's big day with fiancé Alex Rodriguez had to be postponed due to the coronavirus lockdown recently, and the star said the change of plans left her disappointed.

The 50-year-old gave an update on what the wedding situation was looking like on US programme the Today back in May, stating: "There’s no planning right now. You just have to kind of wait and see how this all plays out. You know, it’s disappointing on one level."

She added of the delay: "I’m a little heartbroken because we did have some great plans, but I’m also like, you know what, God has a bigger plan and we just have to wait and see.

“Maybe it’s going to be better? I have to believe that it will be."
