From her musical and acting talent to her jaw-dropping fashion looks, Jennifer Lopez never seizes the opportunity to wow her fans. The 51-year-old star gave a stellar performance at the Vax Live concert which was recorded on May 2, 2021, which will air on May 8, 2021. Now JLo fans want to know how much money she makes.
Taking to Instagram, Lopez shared a sneak peek of her ultra-glam outfits for the event.

She posted: "When rocking a ponytail ... you know it's about to go down 😉💕," Lopez captioned the series of behind-the-scenes photos.

Born on July 24, 1970, in New York's Bronx to Puerto Rican parents, Lopez was a born talent. As a child she was always keen to sing, dance, act -- in short, she wanted to be famous. A natural athlete, Lopez competed in the track at the national level growing up, practiced gymnastics, and was on her high school's softball team. Her first entertainment industry role came in her senior year of high school when she appeared in the 1986 indie film 'My Little Girl', and left her with the acting bug.
The Bronx native attended one semester at Baruch College before dropping out to pursue a career as a dancer and actress. As a full-time artist, her first long-term gig in show business started in 1991, when she performed on the sketch comedy show, 'In Living Color,' as one of the dancing "Fly Girls". Her first professional acting credit came in 1993 with the television movie 'Nurses on the Line: The Crash of Flight 7'. She went on to do some recurring TV work in series including 'Second Chances', 'South Central' and 'Hotel Malibu' before appearing alongside bona fide stars like Wesley Snipes, Woody Harrelson, and Robert Blake in 1995’s 'Money Train'.
Lopez co-starred alongside Robin Williams as his teacher, Miss Marquez, in 'Jack' in 1996, followed by her stellar performance in 'Blood and Wine' with Jack Nicholson, Michael Caine and Harold Perrineau. She also starred in the low-budget drama 'My Family,' directed by Gregory Nava. After starring in 'Gigli' (2003), a critical and commercial failure, Lopez subsequently starred in successful romantic comedies like, 'Shall We Dance?' (2004) and 'Monster-in-Law' (2005).
Her fifth studio album, 'Como Ama Una Mujer' (2007), received the highest first-week sales for a debut Spanish album in the US. From 2016 to 2018, she appeared in the police drama series 'Shades of Blue' and also did a residency show, 'Jennifer Lopez: All I Have', at Planet Hollywood Las Vegas. Since 2017, Lopez has produced and served as a judge on 'World of Dance'. In 2019, she accumulated critical acclaim for her performance as a stripper in the crime drama 'Hustlers'.
