Many now-millionaire Hollywood stars were not even rich at the beginning. In fact, many were even poor. Yet, they managed to see the bright side of life and succeed in life. Scroll down to learn about Ed Sheeran, Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Lopez' tough moments when they were young!
- Ed Sheeran was born on February, 17th 1991 in West Yorkshire, England. The star is not only a singer but also a songwriter and producer.
- Kelly Clarkson achieved stardom after winning the first season of American Idol in 2002. The singer is also a TV presenter and actress.
- 51-year-old J-Lo is the Latina best paid in Hollywood. She performed in 2020 Super Bowl.
- The three stars have a considerable high net worth (Kelly holds the minimum among the three being $45 million), but the story was not so when teenagers.
1. Ed Sheeran
Although his parents tried really hard to give the young ginger boy a proper education, at the age of 17 Ed decided he was going to try his passion: music. The singer moved to London and of course he could not make ends meet at the beginning in one of the most expensive cities in the world.
He even had to sleep at some friend's houses, and in his latest book he admitted having slept in the subway when there was nowhere to go. Clearly his luck changed and the young teenager could prove his parents his dream could be real. Thank you, Ed, for trying your best even in your most difficult times, so we can all enjoy your music today!
2. Kelly Clarkson
Blond Kelly has always known she was perfect for Hollywood. Before American Idol, she had a house in Los Angeles, which unfortunately burnt out. Literally, she had nowhere to sleep and no successful career yet. Until she decided what to do, she slept in her car.
She had to move to her hometown in Texas because things were not going well for her. Thankfully, she was admitted in American Idol and the rest is what we all know. Today Kelly has a $10 million lake house, and if a fire gets it, she can buy another one, and another one, and another one.
3. Jennifer Lopez
“Pa Ti” singer has always wanted to be famous. She wanted to be a dancer actually. At home, her family didn't approve her likes, besides Jenn's parents wanted her to go to high school. In the end, J-Lo decided to leave her house to pursue her dream and become a ballerina. The also-actress ended up sleeping on a dance studio sofa until she was finally hired to dance in a Janet Jackson video. Everything started from there. Thank you, Jennifer, for believing in your dreams!
