Lopez Goes Loco
Staff at Top Of The Pops and cd:uk were not the only ones in Europe to suffer from Jennifer Lopez's extravagant demands. Prior to flying to England, Jen was in France to do some promo for her new single, Love Don't Cost A Thing, and nearly drove the staff from her record company to tears. Our on the-spot spy was there to dish the dirt ...Jennifer flew in to Paris in a private jet and had an entourage of 30 people, including one personal assistant, four bodyguards, four managers, one make-up artist, two hairdressers, two stylists, one choreographer and six dancers. She checked in to the ultra-exclusive Hotel Crillon (average cost Â£2,000 per night), under the name Jan Brady, and demanded white orchids and scented candles in every room. (Apparently Puff Daddy requests the same things.) The flowers had to be fresh and replaced twice daily. Due to appear on Hit Machine a show on French channel M6, she left the hotel two hours late at the time when she was supposed to be on stage for rehearsal. On arrival, she threw a tantrum regarding the colour of her dressing room and the lack of white lilies in the room and threatened to cancel her appearance on the show. She then demanded a special make-up table with 500kw lights. Her personal assistant Arlene Rodriguez looking for black gaffer tape in a total state of panic, was heard whispering to a technician who provided her with a roll, 'You saved my life!'The whole J-Lo (as she likes to be called nowadays) entourage travelled in one Mercedes 500, one Mercedes 300, two VIP vans for the remaining people and three luggage vans, one entirely devoted to the star's wardrobe. She left Paris the following morning and sighs of relief were heaved by everyone concerned. She then went on to Madrid where the same circus occurred and TV shows eventually had to be cancelled. Lopez' new album, J.Lo is out on 23 January. As well as new single Love Don't Cost A Thing it includes the next single Play which will be released in March 2001 and a duet with Latino star Chayanne entitled Touch Me.
