Sometimes being a diva isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Jennifer Lopez learned this the hard way when she reportedly lost a booked gig in India due to her excessive diva demands.
According to Page Six, Lopez was supposed to perform in front of 60 million viewers at the opening ceremony of India’s Premier League cricket tournament. However, the deal fell through when the famously high-maintenance pop star had requested a private plane for her use, and well as multiple additional hotel rooms for her enormous entourage of stylists, assistants and a personal chef. (Lopez’ traveling entourage has included as many as 90 people at once.)
IPL officials refused to cater to her demands, and decided to book Pitbull instead, along with some other Bollywood stars.
As one source commented:
“The demands made on behalf of Jennifer were outrageous. She effectively priced herself out of the event. It was an idiotic move because the audience for this event is huge. It’s like the Super Bowl halftime show. Last year it drew 56 million viewers.”
Score for Pitbull!
A rep for Lopez is disputing those reports however, claiming that the reason why the gig fell through is because Lopez is “busy.” The rep said, “An offer was made to perform; the date conflicted with Jennifer’s current music-recording schedule for an album due this summer.”
Was Lopez too busy or too diva to perform at India’s cricket tournament? You be the judge and let us know your thoughts below!
Did Toni Braxton Really Confirm Her Engagement To Birdman … Or Is This ‘BFV’ Trailer Trickery?
Toni Braxton and Bryan “Birdman” Williams have been flaunting their love on red carpets and concert stages for quite some time now, but are the two actually engaged. Well, take a look at this trailer and you decide…

WeTV released this snippet for the upcoming season of Braxton Family Values and in it you clearly hear Toni state, “I have an announcement to make. I’m engaged!” You also see the big rock the singer has been wearing recently, up-close and personal. But what you don’t see is Toni actually making the announcement. Call us cynical, but until we actually SEE Toni say she’s engaged, and not just hear her say it (which could possibly be voiceover), we’ll be a bit hesitant to call it a confirmation.
Maybe we’re in denial. But you have to admit, Braxton and Birdman are a bit of an odd couple. Do you think the two are actually engaged? Will they make it down the aisle to happily ever after?? Or is WEtv pulling the wool over our eyes and getting shifty with their editing? Only time will tell — the new season of Braxton Family Values airs in March.
