So FANS hoping to see Jennifer Lopez this New Year's Eve will be disappointed. The 'Im Real' singer was SUPPOSED to PERFORM at E11EVEN’s New Year’s Eve bash, in Miami, but has BACKED OUT! The appearance would have been a HUGE pay day for the singer/actress,--upwards of a MILLION DOLLARS, but Jlo reportedly backed out due to previous obligations, the rigors of her tour and her HIT NBC drama, 'Shades of Blue' scheduling.
"She was just so consumed with ‘Shades of Blue,’ her concert, and other obligations, getting on a plane for New Year’s just seemed too much,” said an insider. “She wanted some personal and family time during the holidays.”
E11EVEN won't be left HIGH AND DRY though. Nicki Minaj has been enlisted to REPLACE Lopez on the bill. But TMZ reports that her PAYDAY is “significantly less.”
Go FIGURE. I would much rather see Nicki Minaj, who has CURRENT hits out now than to see JLO cucaracha around on the stage with them same songs she been singing for the last 7 years...but of course it is MIAMI, and they LOVE some JLO. But nonetheless I am SURE it will be HUGE for Minaj.
