Maybe this is why it took so long to close this deal — turns out she had ridiculous demands, including a $15 million-a-year payday!

Jennifer Lopez, 41, claims to not be a diva, but she definitely has diva demands! Our sister site Deadline.com is reporting that Jennifer was holding out for more than the initial $12 million offer to be a judge on American Idol. Reports are stating that the singer demanded that Fox give her a “guaranteed go” film along with a $15 million paycheck.

But in case you’re wondering why it’s taking so many weeks for an official announcement, here’s another doozie. J.Lo wanted American Idol to delay releasing the names of the official judging panel so it could coincide with the release of her first single in mid-September — are you kidding?!

Either way, we think J.Lo will make an amazing judge, along with Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler — but when will we hear about that?

I guess I won’t be watching American Idol anymore…I don’t think I can stomach watching this over paid and untalented idiot tell others “they” can’t sing.

American Idol is really scrapping the bottom of the barrel having J-LO as judge. She will be such a headache for them, I am sure the producers will be suicidal by the end of the show. The thousands of rumors of her being a diva did not start from nowhere and I believe 100% that she is one. J-Lo is a legend in her own mind, and with that huge ego that matches her huge butt, she will make sure American Idol is about J-LO. Her career (if you an call it that), is going down the drain, she makes movie flop after movie flop, her music label dumped her because she wasn’t selling CD’s, and yet American Idol thinks she will be an ASSet (pardon the pun, LOL!) to the show? The show will probably have high rating for a week or 2 due to morbid curiousity of this woman, but then it will fizzle out. J-LO definitely got the better end of the bargain, IMHO.
