J. Lo knows everyone calls her a diva — and thinks it’s cute the American Idol producers try to shield her from critics!
When a reporter asked J. Lo about the truth behind the reports that she was a diva, producers shot the press person down immediately and Jennifer couldn’t have been more appreciative.
“Aww, everyone protects me like brothers now,” she said. “I’m used to [being called a diva] after, you know, all the years in the business. I’m used to the speculation. I was calming Fox people down saying “It will be gone tomorrow.” Once they know what we’re doing, the truth always shows itself in who you are. And I wasn’t worried about it to be honest. I was looking forward to getting it started…”
Added executive producer Nigel Lythoe, “Mostly, it was a scheduling thing that we had to work out, but that is very typical.”
