Sometimes even in Hollywood, it doesn’t pay to be a jerk.
Jennifer Lopez found that out the hard way. According to a report, the pop empress was nixed from a performance at a big cricket event in India because of her outrageous demands.
The New York Post relays the insider info, saying that J.Lo was in talks to perform at India’s Premier League tournament, a significant engagement of 60 million viewers.
But once the bookers caught wind of J.Lo’s wish list—complete with private plane to the gig and several rooms for her staff (assistants, stylists, and a chef)—they ran for the hills.
Yeah, turns out Jenny from the block wants to bring the whole neighborhood with her now…
“The demands made on behalf of Jennifer were outrageous,” a source told the outlet. “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.”
Instead, the event booked their fallback act: Pitbull.
But one could argue that IPL’s problems are their own fault. Had they done their research like us, they’d know hotel rooms were just the beginning once you open up the J.Lo cookie jar.
Need we remind you of the white roses, sofas and fish that she needs too?
