Lopez 'prices herself out of gig for 60 million viewers'

Jennifer Lopez's diva demands have reportedly cost her a gig in front of 60 million viewers.

The singer was wanted for the opening ceremony of India's Premier League cricket tournament, but her "idiotic" list meant reportedly "priced herself out" of the show.

The Sun newspaper said she wanted dozens of hotel rooms for her massive entourage - including assistants, stylists and a chef - and a private jet.

A source claimed: "The demands were outrageous. She effectively priced herself out of the event. It was idiotic because the audience for this event is huge."

A spokesman for the 'On the Floor' hitmaker insisted she turned down an offer to play the show because she was busy recording an album.

Despite the reports, one thing Jennifer won't be putting a value on is her close friends after she described their companionship as "priceless" earlier this month,

She said: "Oh my God, my girlfriends are everything to me. They celebrate with you, they cry with you, they hold you when you need to be held. They laugh with you. They're mean with you! They're just always there, and it's just a priceless thing to have."
