Jewel famously lived out of her car before she scored her first big break in 1995. During that time, the aspiring folk singer was forced to steal food to feed herself. Jewel opened up about her experiences with shoplifting during a 2013 concert in New York City. "There was a phase there where I shoplifted a little," she said. "It started with carrots. It's the gateway vegetable." She went on to recount how she stopped shoplifting after she almost stole a $40 sundress. "I didn't steal the dress and I never stole anything after that," she concluded.
