Jennifer Lopez had doubts towards her singing talent. She admits that she felt this way for a long time until she met her ex husband Marc Anthony. She encouraged her and told her she was good at what she did. The On The Floor vocalist reveals she didn’t believe her vocal range was that good, however Anthony made he realize that she was a successful international popstar because of her talent.
Speaking to Britain’s Cosmopolitan magazine, she said:
”The biggest insecurity I had was my singing… Even though I had sold 70 million records, there was this feeling like, ‘I’m not good at this’. And while I was married to Marc, he helped me get over it. He kept telling me, ‘You’re the only one holding yourself back from reaching your full potential as a singer. You have to let go’.
”I was always so insecure. Then I grew, little by little, and realized, wait a minute, this is not a fluke. I’m not a mistake – I work my ass off. And I know what I’m doing.”
The forty four year old and Anthony parted ways in July 2011.
