AceShowbiz - Behind her much admired look and flawless performance at the 2019 Grammy Awards, Jennifer Lopez reportedly gave a hard time to those who worked with her backstage. The 49-year-old singer/dancer reportedly acted like "a complete diva" while attending the ceremony last Sunday, February 10.
A source tells Radar Online, "Jennifer wouldn't allow anyone to tell her what to do." The source adds, "During rehearsals, she was barking at the dancers and she kept breaking down and getting frustrated because it wasn't going her way."
The former "American Idol" judge allegedly demanded she and her boyfriend Alex Rodriguez "get their own area backstage, which was the equivalent of three dressing rooms." Described as being "very difficult" to work with, the "On the Floor" hitmaker reportedly "demanded preferential treatment over everyone, including Lady GaGa."
While she posed with the "Shallow" singer on the red carpet, J.Lo reportedly wasn't really friendly with the "A Star Is Born" actress. The source claims J.Lo did it for publicity and "not because of their love for one another."
"She definitely lived up to her reputation as difficult," the source concludes.
J.Lo delivered a Motown tribute performance at the Grammys, during which she belted out a medley of Motown classics, such as "Dancing in the Street", "Please Mr. Postman" and "The Best Things in Life Are Free". She was later joined by Grammys host Alicia Keys, Ne-Yo and Smokey Robinson, for a rendition of "My Girl".
Some people questioned why she'd been chosen for the tribute piece. Defending her performance, the "Shades of Blue" alum said it was for her mother and she grew up on Motown songs. "The thing about music is that it inspires all," she added. "Any type of music can inspire any type of artist. You can't tell people what to love. You can't tell people what they can and can't do, what they should sing or not sing. You gotta do what's in your heart."
