Singer Jewel opens up on past hunger, homelessness

Before rising to international fame, singer/songwriter Jewel faced some tough times.

The 37-year-old mom says she experienced both homelessness and hunger, and is grateful to those who saw something in her when she couldn't see it for herself.

[This post contains spoilers for the April 29 episode of HBO's "Game of Thrones," as well as the George R.R. Martin "Song of Ice and Fire" novels upon which the series is based.]
