Whether or not reports that “American Idol” execs passed on Jennifer Lopez as an "Idol" judge because she was too demanding are the real reason she won't be on the Fox show, we do know one thing: Lopez likes her jewels.
After more than one report about Fox looking elsewhere for an “Idol” judge questioned if it was because of a “diva” attitude, Lopez tweeted a photo of a filled-to-the-brim jewelry box, makeup bags and what looks like a hat with a feather.
The caption read, “Hmm…what should I wear today?" Because, you know, these are the questions that a high-maintenance diva has to thoughtfully consider.
Although she didn’t specifically reference any of the “Idol” rumors, we like to think that photo spoke a thousand words as to what her thoughts are on the speculation.

Nobody died and dubbed me the arbiter of all things fashionable, but I can spot a "don't" pretty easily, and last night at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles, there were plenty to go around. In fact, there were so many, like J.Lo, you could have tripped on them. Let's take a "trip" down memory lane.
Janet, "Miss Jackson" if you must, looked like a Crate and Barrel couch that had too much bedazzling.
Speaking of bedazzled, Shakira's shorty black number made Janet's look positively dowdy with all the sparkle and glitz. It was sort of a latex, LED tube dress that fit her like a glove. The hips don't lie.
Rihanna is usually lauded for her ensembles, and while I don't always love the '80s outfits she dons, I can appreciate her ability to pull them off. So what happened last night? Rihanna was covered from neck to ankles in what looked like a white velour "onesie." You know, sort of like little kids pajamas. It was offset by horizontal cutouts that looked like tan stripes, which one person described as a glorified Cinnabon and another termed "Ace bandages." She was wearing a short white shrug that looked like football shoulder pads with spikes jutting forth.
Lady Gaga... you expect a dramatic look from her, it's part of the schtick. But her weirdly proportioned nude leotards, oddly wrapped with the accessory of the night, "Ace bandages," offset by a contraption that looked like a ribcage with Christmas tree lights, and very "Alienesque" headgear were beyond the pale. I kept looking at those straps trying to figure out why they were there and what they were hiding.
