As with current American Idol judge Mariah Carey, former judge Jennifer Lopez has had rumors of diva requests plaguing her for years. If this latest rumor out of India is true, it may be a case of “where there’s smoke, there’s fire.”
According to the New York Post, India’s professional cricket league (formerly called “IPL”) asked Jennifer to partake in this year’s opening ceremony, but her “outrageous” demands were too rich for their blood. If the reports are accurate, the “Dance Again” singer asked for a private plane and dozens of hotel rooms for she and her entourage.
“She effectively priced herself out of the event. It was idiotic because the audience for this event is huge,” an insider revealed. “It’s like the Super Bowl halftime show. Last year, it drew 56 million viewers.”
Not so, say Jennifer’s people, who insist she had to decline the offer because she is busy working on her eighth album. We did recently posted a TwitPic of the outrageously beautiful star cozying up to Chris Brown in studio for a possible duet. Or perhaps she was too busy doing interviews at absurdly expensive preschools for her twins?
Interestingly enough, the star who has replaced J-Lo is Pitbull, whom the pop diva has collaborated with on several songs. The event will take place at Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata, India, on April 2.
What do you think–is Jennifer really “Jenny from the Block,” or is she a demanding diva?
