Diva demands do more than inspire incredulous groans and eye rolls, it seems. They can also cost a star a lucrative gig.

Jennifer Lopez was gearing up to perform in front of the Super Bowl of the Subcontinent, next Tuesday's opening ceremony of India's Premier Cricket tournament - watched by 60 million people - but organizers pulled the plug because of J.Lo's over-the-top orders, reports the New York Post.

On the list of requirements? A private plane for the pop star and a plethora of hotel rooms to accommodate her infamously sized entourage of stylists, assistants and a personal chef.

A source told the paper: "The demands made on behalf of Jennifer were outrageous. She effectively priced herself out of the event. It was an idiotic move."

What star made a, well, smarter move and got booked instead? Rapper Pitbull.
