Today in Madonna History: November 7, 2014

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.

On September 11 1988, Madonna participated in the Sport Aid 88: The Race Against Time marathon in New York.

“We can make future generations look back on this decade, and remember us as the generation who began to shape a world in which children enjoy a future free from hunger and pain. Please join the Race Against Time and help CARE and Sport Aid make a difference in a hungry child’s life.” – Madonna
