We Now Know Why People Don’t Want To Work With J.Lo

If you ask Jennifer Lopez, she’ll tell you
she’s not a diva. But that doesn’t mean it’s easy to coexist
with her. Though the star has undeniably earned her
place at the top, here’s why people don’t want to work with J.Lo. Talking smack about actresses When a reporter from Movieline turned up at
Lopez’s swanky Beverly Hills mansion to conduct an interview in 1998, he was greeted with
what he described as a, quote, “orchestrated [and] deliberate” scene – J.Lo was lounging
by her swimming pool, mid-massage, as countless cronies buzzed around the place doing her
bidding. The rub-down clearly didn’t relieve Lopez
of all her stress, however, because the actress seemingly felt the need to let loose during
the interview, taking swipes at a number of her industry rivals. When she was asked what she thought about
the actresses with whom she was competing for roles, J.Lo said, “[Claire Danes] does the same thing with every
character she does.” The pair had just worked together on Oliver
Stone’s neo-noir crime thriller U Turn. Lopez went on to say that she was, quote,
“never a big fan” of two-time Oscar nominee Winona Ryder, and she also went off on Gwyneth
Paltrow, who would win best actress at the Academy Awards the following year. Lopez said, “Tell me what she’s been in? I swear to God, I don’t remember anything
she was in. Some people get hot by association. I heard more about her and Brad Pitt than
I ever heard about her work.” Insulting other musicians Lopez also offered her opinion on fellow pop
star and actress Madonna during the candid Movieline interview, claiming Madge was good
at one of her jobs, but not so good at the other. Lopez explained, “Do I think she’s a great performer? Yeah. Do I think she’s a great actress? No. Acting is what I do, so I’m harder on people
when they say, ‘Oh, I can do that, I can act.’ I’m like, ‘Hey, don’t spit on my craft.'” Some would agree that the “Material Girl”
wasn’t cut out for acting, but at the time of Lopez’s interview, Madonna was still riding
the Evita wave – and the 1996 musical biopic was reviewed positively by the majority of
critics. The Queen of Pop isn’t the only musician Lopez
has shaded. There’s been speculation that J.Lo’s short-lived
relationship with Drake in 2016 was nothing but a publicity stunt. However, according to Elle, the fact that
Rihanna – who’s had a somewhat complicated relationship with the Canadian rapper over
the years – unfollowed Lopez on Instagram after she posted a pic cozying up to the Grammy-winner
seems to suggest that there was, indeed, some truth to that coupling. Lopez revealed that she and Drake were working
on a song together, but working with J.Lo doesn’t always end well – she later dissed
Drake during a live show in Las Vegas, telling the audience that he was nothing but a “booty
call” for her, according to Inquisitr. Driving co-stars ‘crazy’ You can add Cameron Diaz to the list of actresses
who have felt Jennifer Lopez’ wrath. J.Lo went after Diaz in her no-holds-barred
Movieline interview, calling the There’s Something About Mary star: “A lucky model who’s been given a lot of opportunities
I just wish she would have done more with.” Yikes! Lopez’s brutal assessment of Diaz’s career
trajectory reportedly made things a tad awkward when the actresses were both cast in 2012’s
What to Expect When You’re Expecting. On-set sources claimed these two did not get
along during the shoot. According to Now, Lopez didn’t endear herself
to Diaz, who allegedly said the pop star was a nightmare to work with. An insider claimed, “She’s even said that Jen should stick to
her day job, meaning American Idol and singing. She demands to eat at specific times, no matter
what… she stops work and has an assistant run over to her with a small protein and veg-based
meal. It’s driving Cameron crazy.” Details of the apparent feud also appeared
in Star magazine, whose source claimed that the co-stars actively avoided one another. The whistleblower said, “They don’t interact much, but when they do,
the tension is thick. [Lopez] just acts as if Cam doesn’t exist.” Both actresses denied there was a rift when
they appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to promote the movie, which was ultimately
panned by critics. Apology needed? Lopez and celebrity makeup artist Scott Barnes
go way back. They met in 2000 at a cover shoot for InStyle
magazine and immediately hit it off. Barnes recalled to Refinery29 in 2019, “She just goes, ‘I like you,’ I said, ‘I like
you too.’ Then she was like, ‘What are you doing on
Friday?’ Even though I was supposed to be working with
Kim Cattrall, I said, ‘Nothing,’ because I just thought, ‘This woman is so beautiful,
I have to work with her.’ She said, ‘I’m shooting my album cover, wanna
do it?’ Two days later, we’re on a plane to Stockholm.” The two became close friends in the years
that followed, with Barnes becoming a trusted member of her inner circle. “The reality is you have to be in love with
the person you’re working on, that makes everything.” It wasn’t all fun and games, however. During an appearance on The Jeff Probst Show,
Barnes revealed that J.Lo once fired him because she thought he’d leaked info about her to
the press. “Yeah it was like nobody would talk to me,
it was like I had the plague. Fun.” When the true source of the leak was discovered,
Barnes said he was swiftly rehired, and they didn’t speak about it again – but he never
got an apology from J.Lo. Fired for an autograph According to one United Airlines employee,
J.Lo’s reputation as an impossible diva is 100 percent warranted. Speaking to Star magazine, the flight attendant
alleged that Lopez was super rude to him after he simply asked the famous songstress if she
would like a beverage. He explained, “I just said, ‘What can I get you to drink?’ But Jennifer refused to even acknowledge me. She turned her head away and told her personal
assistant, ‘Please tell him I’d like a Diet Coke and lime.’ She wouldn’t even look at me. It was sad, she seems so sweet in her movies.” As far as we know the scorned flight attendant
didn’t get in any trouble, but that reportedly wasn’t the case for one German hotel maid
who had the nerve to ask J.Lo for an autograph in 2012. The employee explained to The Sun, “I am an incredibly big fan so I took all
my courage and rang the bell to get an autograph, but I was rejected by two assistants at the
door. A day later the cleaning company that employed
me at the hotel called and said that Ms Lopez had complained. I was fired right there on the phone.” Lopez called the story “hurtful” and refuted
that she got anyone fired, though she didn’t deny complaining about the maid. Forgetting Ryan Lopez got to know American Idol host Ryan
Seacrest during her tenure as a judge on the long-running show, but their friendship may
not be as close as we thought. The “Dance Again” singer celebrated her 50th
birthday in 2019, and she organized a suitably swanky party to mark the occasion. Harper’s Bazaar described the bash as: “The most lavish birthday party in the history
of birthday parties.” It took place at Gloria and Emilio Estefan’s
private home on Star Island in Miami. Seacrest reportedly flew to Miami from New
York for the party, only to discover that Lopez hadn’t bothered to put him on the list. When he tried to enter, the door staff turned
him down. “She invited me personally, can I see the
list? Well, sure enough, there’s Ryan T, and Ryan
Z, There’s no Ryan Seacrest.” A few phone calls were made and Seacrest – after
being told to, quote, “wait under the fan” – was finally given permission to go inside. Was this an honest mistake, or a shady move? ‘Went off’ on Rosie J.Lo and Rosie Perez met in the early ’90s
when the latter was working as a choreographer on the sketch-comedy show In Living Color. A 20-year-old Lopez was one of the numerous
dancers who attended an open casting call for the show’s dance group, The Fly Girls. Creator Keenan Ivory Wayans reportedly wasn’t
interested in hiring Lopez, but Perez supposedly vouched for the curly-haired New Yorker. Before long, Perez began to wonder if she’d
made a mistake. She wrote about J.Lo in her memoir, Handbook
for an Unpredictable Life, saying, “All of the girls were coming into my office
complaining how she was manipulating wardrobe, makeup, and me, all to her advantage.” Perez claimed that when she confronted Lopez
about what she’d been told, “[Lopez] went off [like] some ghetto biatch,
screaming and pounding her chest.” According to Perez, Lopez believed that she
was the best dancer there. J.Lo reportedly yelled at Perez: “I know I’m good, I’m better than any of these
girls and you know it.” The feisty pair talked it out and eventually
buried the hatchet – or so Perez thought. When Lopez later made it big in Hollywood,
J.Lo supposedly made negative comments about Perez, who claims that Lopez ghosted her. Perez said, “I was blindsided. I’d thought we were cool. I called her up. She wouldn’t pick up.” Ridiculous demands According to The Huffington Post, J.Lo was
all set to perform at the opening ceremony of the Indian Premier League Twenty20 cricket
tournament – which has a TV audience of about 60 million – in 2013, but she apparently lost
the gig when IPL bosses found out that she was asking for a private plane and numerous
hotel rooms to accommodate all of her stylists and handlers. The organizers wouldn’t play ball and replaced
Lopez with Pitbull. This demand was nothing, however, compared
to the nearly impossible requests J.Lo reportedly made ahead of her medley performance at the
World Music Awards in 2010. The Mirror reported that the singer’s rider
allegedly requested a helicopter to be kept on stand-by, as well as a custom-fitted speed
boat and a pair of diamond-encrusted headphones to drown out the sound of the boat’s motor. An insider told the tab, “Her people requested that she have an entire
floor of the hotel to herself to ensure she wasn’t hassled. Privacy was a main concern so she had a piece
of beach roped off, too.” Confidence vs. arrogance There’s confidence, and then there’s arrogance,
and according to those who’ve worked with her, Lopez has walked a dangerous tightrope
between the two for years. During her highly contrived poolside interview
with Movieline in 1998, J.Lo declared herself an A-lister. She was probably feeling supported by the
critical reception to her turn as murdered pop star Selena in 1997’s Selena – but positive
reviews appeared to go straight to Lopez’s head. When Movieline asked Lopez why she was a hot
property in Hollywood at the time, she delivered an immodest answer, saying, “Because I’m the best. I feel I can do anything, any kind of role. I’m fearless.” This kind of honesty can be refreshing, but
having too much belief in your own abilities will inevitably get under the skin of colleagues
and viewers alike. Lopez claimed to have something called “the
stardom glow,” but not everyone saw it that way. While 1998 was a good year for her, she certainly
fell out of favor with the critics in 2003, when Gigli managed an embarrassing 6 percent
rating on Rotten Tomatoes and landed Lopez the worst actress title at the Golden Raspberry
Awards. “There’s worse movies than Gigli out there.” Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Nicki Swift videos about your

  1. Why is this hoe even a topic, she doesn't even sing her own songs. She needs to thank Ashanti for her career. ANd Murder Inc with a bunch of black males allowed that shit, not type of protection


  3. She can’t act that’s for sure. She sleeps her way up. I definitely lost all respect when she took Mark Anthony when his wife just had his babies. What a slut! I was shocked to see that she’s playing a role as a stripper. Now that she would do well in.

  4. This is not nothing new… Jennifer is butt hurt… like not being on Beyonce level.. she never acknowledged her… latine girls hate so much on beautiful black girls

  5. Even though all the crítics People have for her, as not a good actress, she cant dance, she cant sing, etc… she was intelligent enough to make her dream come true, she could play the games, she knew the rules and made it, and did everything to Get where she is… What a life to be respected!!! Applausesv4vu Jlo…. And wait and watch, she Will win an Oscar…

  6. Have nothing to am say other than if I was marrying g someone and saw the look she displays on this channel, would be tempted to think again. That is a mean oozing look from a very beautiful woman.
    Hope they find happiness.

  7. I dunno im sure Jlo just like everyone has had their rude/ bad attitude moments doesnt mean you are a bad person. I just dont know if all of this is true it could be made up.

  8. 1:53 "When they're sleeping, I'm doing more"

    Don't remember Mariah Carey's response to JLo sleeping 8h a day, "If I had the luxury of not singing my own songs, I'd do that too!"?

  9. Violín live carol. Esto. Te. Call me espage. Despliega navidad y octubre me dicen. Yo ba ok doy. Yo. Grc saludos esto dance

  10. Hilarious that J-Lo is all defensive when it comes to acting because that's "her craft" ? Yet she tries to hop in the singer lane ALLLLL the time and everyone knows about her stealing other artists vocals for her music ?

  11. I didn’t realize JLo was this Woman, sad to hear, I looked forward to her movies. But now I see her as the Broad on Hustlers

  12. Lots of people work hard. Some people may have been disadvantaged children of single parents who have sacrificed their childhood and worked hard to overcome financial hardship and disadvantage. They may have worked hard enough to stand first out of hundreds but they end up with nothing because of criminals ganging up on them and telling lies and physically torturing them again and again so that they have to fight again and again just to stay alive and survive. Then you have criminals using gang people and illegal immigrants to call them whores and criminals when they have lived innocent, God fearing, law abiding lives! Hard work doesn't get you anywhere when you live in a CRIME INFESTED dump. Jennifer Lopes is not the only person to have worked hard! Some people can be the fatherless children of single parents but they are LOOTED and robbed and destroyed by psychopaths who use criminals to tell lies about INNOCENT people they have never even met! There is only ONE word for this kind of bad behaviour. CRIME. LYING ABOUT INNOCENT people because you are jealous of them or because someone has made it worth your while. DISGUSTING. What kind of CRIMINAL frames INNOCENT people for crimes they never committed? Only a CRIMINAL would do this. God protect us from this SCUM. You don't rob the disadvantaged, less fortunate, deprived children of single parents unless you are an ANIMAL.

  13. Never liked her music much less her so called acting! Don't know why she acts like she's so special, thinks she's better than everyone……wake up girl, because looks don't last forever! And you'll be judged on the way you treat people!!!

  14. Something I've always noticed about her is that she is very insecure. I felt that in some interviews I've seen of her that made me not like her anymore.

  15. You answered this question first 10 seconds "star has undeniable EARNED her place at top"

    No she hasn't, she has less talent than people claim the Kardashians lack

    Shes not a gold singer nor an actress

    All her hits use NONE of her vocals. She steals or samples from black women,


  16. First of all: she's not a good actress and she never will be. Second of all: she is not a great singer either. She is just a show woman with luck. Like any other person with lack of things during childhood, she must show and proves to others that she worth it when she doesn't. Just my humble opinion.

  17. I was at the Fly girl audition…Jlo was one of the worst dancers at that audition she and another girl got hired for other reasons that dont need to be mentioned on here.

  18. She is a wicked witch! I dont know why some people still can't see that… she can't even sing, her acting is poor and stiff… dancing? They are others who dance way better than her… does anyone realize she is so narcissistic and delusional? Somebody needs to slap her hard for that…. gosh…

  19. Although JLo is very good-looking, hers is a beauty countless women have, and if they could afford to sleep as much, get massaged as much, had personal trainers and chefs, had someone else to spend 2 hours on their makeup and people to keep other people from getting on their nerves (let's face it, frowning causes wrinkles), they'd be world-class beauties, too. I bet living with her is like having a collector's edition doll that has to stay in it's original package, so you can look, but don't touch.

  20. Mariah and Madonna are the worst. Mariah is bougie and Madonna is a narcissist. But jlo CANT SING OR ACT. People literally made her an undeserved star. she has NO integrity. but i'll never knock her dancing.

  21. who the hell is Nikki swift. oh a trash talking channel coming down on jlo implying she's talking trash about her competitors. next

  22. Just because you work hard Jennifer doesn't make u good at your work. You cant act. Your singing skills is mediocre. Please don't forget to speak positively about others and not just negativity.

  23. J.Lo….She is at the top of my list, the best, sweet, charming, honest, and expects from others no more than she expects of herself.

  24. Jenifer? ☺? could fool me i thought?☺? she was nice like how she look nice know wonder?they said beauty? Comes from the inside she is a nice looking women?☺ but aftet hearing so much negitive? Things about her?☺ so much people could never telling a lie? About her somthing have to be true? And am looking into all these men who she:s with and every one is gone she must have some bad way;s away from her prettynest? They have. A saying? Goes like this ??☺ looke;s are deceiving? Dont look on a person because they are attactive? And☺?? think they are all that ? Think again?☺?

  25. It’s a bit obvious that the employee would get fired. And if the staff we’re notified in advance that they are not allowed to disturb her then they are asking to get fired by crossing boundaries.

  26. These stories are not true and over exaggerated, stop attempting to spoil the name of a hardworking woman for clout. Take this down, it doesn't tell well of your brand.

  27. 1998!!!! SERIOUSLY?!! An interview 21 years ago?! Jen is Fifty!!! FIFTY!!!! She can talk the talk, because she's Walked the Walk!

  28. Not that the maid should have disturbed her to get her autograph, but.. now this is the diva part, her assistants looked after the issue, Lopez wasn't even disturbed but she still rang and complained about someone who is on minimum wage, possibly has children and most likely would be sacked, THAT'S what makes her selfish and deluded and not a nice person. She didn't need to do that and possibly destroy that person's life….just for asking for an autograph…..which had 'annoyed' Lopez. I can't stand those kinds of people/celebrities/wealthy. Just nasty and absorbed and totally out of contact with the 'real' world.

  29. I got my nails done by a woman who worked as an “as needed” makeup up artist at big events like award shows and she said that Jennifer Lopez had a rider (list of demands that set staff must met whilst a celebrity completes a job) that stated if any of the staff looked her in the eye, they were to be fired and remove from set. She said that she had to blend her concealer using her peripherals because she was terrified of her.

  30. I don’t think she’s ever went as far as paying her respects to Selena by visiting her grave for her birthday or anniversary.

  31. She's a better actress than a singer, but she's nothing special. She thinks she's more cool than she really is. But she's absolutely correct with the Gweneth Paltrow comment.

  32. I liked Jennifer Lopez's song, "Love Can't Buy a Thing," but her attitude suggests otherwise. I have never heard of any of these stories about her. I only knew about the excessive media attention over a possible marriage to Ben Affleck years ago. I recall a story years ago that said Ben Affleck claimed his relationship to Jennifer Lopez set him back financially, I think over a pink diamond. Then Affleck was rumored as saying his new girlfriend after his break-up with Lopez did not care if he bought her a ring from Sears. I think it is good to be proud of one's accomplishments and abilities, but I don't think she is confident at all. I think her arrogance is a mask for her insecurity. I sort of feel sorry for her…Sort of…

  33. Even if she's not the best at both acting and singing, she's super big and she's made it on her own. Considering that Hollywood changes people anyway, I don't mind she's a diva!

  34. No no Cameron no no don't mess with her no no JLo don't mess with my Diaz you nothing like her she is super playful ,you are different can't compare none.

  35. Jennifer Lopez is a horrible human being and I would never pay money to see any of her movies or buy her shitty music. Diva? She is a pretend diva. The only talent she has is as a hustler, so her new movie is very fitting.

  36. I don't care what y'all gotta sat about her she's a mf queen. She's the successful one with talent all you guys know how to do is hate. Id like to see you guys get as successful as her.

  37. I believe the rumours only because I witnessed a celeb being an asshole to someone (and I would never have believed it if I didn't see it with my own eyes). I worked at the airport few years ago, we had several celebs coming in Toronto for the TIFF Festival, and one of them I remember vividly in particular, being Ashley Benson from PLL. My shift was at the podium that morning, I was assigned to direct and answer any questions from passengers. Ashley had a concierge with her (that seemed timid and nervous) – before the concierge got in contact with me, Ashley was treating that poor girl with so much disrespect; she was acting extremely entitled and rude, and was degrading the concierge because the concierge was confused about her flight details. This all happened right in front of me, the concierge looked like she was about to cry, and then asked me for my assistance, she then showed me Ashley's ticket itinerary. I was a huge fan of PLL show. After witnessing how entitled and rude Ashley was behaving I was shocked and in disbelief.

  38. I love how, despite how unfriendly she is, she's never dared to speak a word against Mariah. Cuz the talentless ho knows that Mimi has enough receipts to check her from here to Pluto.

  39. When everyone is spending precious time with their children, she's doing more, shaking her ass, making movie after movie, failed tv shows, and orchestrating publicity stunt relationships.

  40. She's a mediocre actress at best, she has literally no range in her singing, and her dance is all choregraphed shit. She's no triple threat.. she's a triple shit with really bad attitude.

  41. Dang how old are the ppl that comment with no comment sense.? Oh she should thank so and so , she stole music bla bla bla. Shes a successful artist and has very powerful ppl behind her telling what her next move will be. She's still standing and still acting singing,producing . Must be indicative of something. When you go in to this business you gotta be tough. Just cause you don't like her doesn't mean other people don't. I admire her for just being ok singer and a meh actress and still being relevant in the business. Trust Kevin not much of fan , but I admire the business women she's become. Btw Ashanti got paid for any work she's done. Writing composing, singing. Even if Tommy Mottola said it was going to Jennifer

  42. Never realised she is a
    ..she DOESN'T write her
    SONGS..so there for she
    Does NOT WORK HARD..
    & HARDER than anybody..
    But we do have to admit..
    ..2019 and JLO'S still
    Singing & Acting..NOT the best singer/actress
    ..but jlo is getting more
    Popular..she owes her
    FAME 2 "SELENA& also
    P.DIDDY" I'm still so
    Curious why JLO &
    Marc Anthony got
    Divorced..never realized
    Jlo is a B***H.

  43. JLo is definitely 100% DIVA in person, she treat regular people like us like trash. I was in marketing industry and let me tell you, she is a rude,disrespectful, overrated actress- singer at best.
