J. Lo knows everyone calls her a diva — and thinks it’s cute the American Idol producers try to shield her from critics!

Jennifer Lopez may be considered one of the biggest divas in recent pop history, but the 41-year-old star acted anything but snobby during American Idol’s panel reveal Sept. 21.

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…”

Another producer also stood up for Jennifer. “The deal was not tough at all,” she said. “There were no diva demands. It was really easy and comfortable for all of us.”

Added executive producer Nigel Lythoe, “Mostly, it was a scheduling thing that we had to work out, but that is very typical.”

So far the new panel seems like one big love fest — do YOU think Jennifer’s diva attitude will come out more during the season?
