Jennifer Lopez’s ‘Diva’ Demands When She Performed on Top of the Pops

Jennifer Lopez ‘refused to appear on a British TV show unless her dressing room was all white’, claims Dannii Minogue

Jennifer Lopez apparently made some “diva demands” when she appeared on the British TV show Top of the Pops in the late 90s.

Fellow pop star Dannii Minogue claimed on her podcast that J.Lo “refused to perform” unless her dressing room was completely redecorated.

The Australian singer, 50, claimed that the Block star’s Jenny, 52, demanded that “everything had to be white” or that she wouldn’t go on stage.

“And while you’re hearing those diva stories, there’s one I can really vouch for,” she said in The 90s with Dannii Minogue.

“I was at Top of the Pops and was told Jennifer Lopez was on her way, but she refused to perform unless her backstage room was redecorated.”

“I was told everything had to be white, including the couch. I asked if I could go in and check out the room because she wasn’t there at the time… I read through every detail,” Dannii added with a laugh.

Dannii said she was confused as to why Jennifer would want an all-white room because of all the body makeup artists often wear.

“All I could think was, ‘Girlfriend is covered in body makeup from head to toe. How do you sit on a white couch?’

Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Jennifer’s representatives for comment.

Jennifer, known for her hits Love Don’t Cost a Thing and On the Floor, recently celebrated the release of her new Netflix documentary Halftime.

In Halftime, the actress-turned-actress reflects on her career, revealing that she nearly quit when controlling her curvaceous figure became too much.

“There were a lot of times when I thought, ‘I think I’m just going to stop,'” she says.

“I really had to find out who I was. And believe in that and believe in nothing else.’

Her curvy body type was far from the norm when J.Lo came on the scene in 1997.

“When I started working, the ideal of beauty was very thin, blond, tall, not very curvy,” she says in Halftime.

“I grew up with curvy women, so I was never ashamed of it. It was hard, when you think people think you’re a joke – as a punch line.’

“But in the end it affected things in a way I never intended,” she says, adding that her then-fiance Ben Affleck was surprised at the criticism.
