Jennifer Lopez has decided to ditch her stage name J-Lo in a bid to distance herself from her reputation as a demanding diva, she told British newspaper The Sun.
The curvaceous bombshell, known for making somewhat outlandish demands at time (i.e. white draped dressing rooms with matching white callalilies) told the newspaper that the nickname was originally meant to be fun, but "got out of control and really crazy."
"That's all gone with the ridiculous stories about me throwing tantrums and insisting on Egyptian sheets. That's all firmly in my past," she added.
According to the report, Jennifer is working on scoring some more serious film roles and music gigs and apparently the feisty nickname wasn't helping much.
Lopez attained fame and obscene amounts of money from less than critically acclaimed films such Maid In Manhattan and The Wedding Planner, and apparently these aren't the things important to her anymore.
"If you focus on the money you're not going to get anywhere. If money is your motivation you're going to be such an empty shallow person," she told the paper.
We can see the headline now, "Jennifer Lopez Opens Orphanage In Africa." Only thing left on the checklist is a move across the big pond to London complete with a new hot quasi-British accent.
