On November 7 2014, Jennifer Lopez talked about how Madonna inspired her to work hard (this took place during J-Lo’s True Love book press conference):
“I still remember when I was a teenage girl and there was Madonna jogging in Central Park (New York) and I thought “wow! she’s famous, she’s rich, she has a lot of success and she’s a great performer; and she’s over there jogging…but she doesn’t need jogging because she’s perfect…but it’s what you MUST do, you MUST work hard. She’s on of my biggest influences and she inspired me a lot.”
Jay’s Note: I remember flipping through paparazzi magazines in waiting rooms as a kid. I loved to look through them because there was always a good chance that there’d be a candid photo of Madonna – and she was usually jogging with her trainer, Rob Parr.
