Report: Pitbull gets big gig because Jennifer Lopez is too big a diva

 

Jennifer Lopez was in talks to perform at the opening ceremony of India’s Premier League cricket tournament, but The New York Post reports that the entertainer’s demands were so out of control that the deal fell through. A source told the paper that Lopez’ manager, Benny Medina, asked for a private plane as well as numerous hotel rooms for her entourage, which included stylists, general peons and a personal chef.

Officials at the Pepsi IPL balked and instead went for Miami’s Pitbull for next Tuesday’s event, which will also feature Bollywood stars. A rep for J.Lo said the reason she didn’t perform in India was a scheduling issue.

Oh no LiLo

Not looking likely that Lindsay Lohan will be invited back to the set of Anger Management, on which she recently guest starred.

Sources told TMZ that the crew called her a “nightmare” and applauded as the actress left. Not only did she show up late, but they say she also took stuff like jewelry and clothing from the wardrobe to go out clubbing and never returned with it. Lindsay? Stealing? Nooo.

We have a feeling Taylor Swift will behave better when she guest stars on Fox’s New Girl. A representative for the Grammy-winner said Swift will appear on the May 14 season finale of the hit show. No other details were provided.

Health monitor

Charlie Daniels is recovering after having a pacemaker implanted Thursday, a representative for the country singer says.

Daniels had been diagnosed with “a mild case of pneumonia.” Tests at a Nashville area hospital revealed that he needed a pacemaker to regulate his heart rate. The Devil Went Down to Georgia singer, 76, said in a statement that he feels good and is looking forward to spending Easter with his family.

Early bird

Don’t look for George Lopez to enter the late night fray. Amid rumors of another Tonight show shake-up, the comedian says he has no desire to return to the past. Lopez said he had a great two-year run as a late night talk show host. But he told the Associated Press: “I’m out of that thing.”
