Jennifer Lopez attributes Barry Manilow to helping save her strained relationship with her mother.
“I wanted to go into showbusiness and she wanted me to be a lawyer. And I was dropping out of school. We butt heads for a while… I left the house and we had a big fight, it was like a big Lopez family drama. I didn’t talk to her for a while.
“She loves Barry Manilow… and there was a big Barry Manilow concert. He was performing for Mother’s Day. So I was like, ‘You know what I’m going to do? I haven’t spoken to my mother for, like, eight months…’ I went and bought tickets. I had no money but I somehow got money to get these tickets and then I went home and I was like, ‘I have Barry Manilow tickets for Mother’s Day!’ And that’s when we started talking again.”
