Jennifer Lopez WILL be performing on opening day of the World Cup in Brazil on Thursday…she has a new CD to promote, after all. Details belowJennifer Lopez has reportedly changed her mind about performing at this year’s FIFA World Cup ceremony.
On Sunday evening the 44-year-old singer’s rep told CNN that she would no longer be appearing ahead of the first match between host Brazil and Croatia in São Paulo on Thursday. She has collaborated with rapper Pitbull and Brazilian popstar Cláudia Leitte for Brazil 2014′s official song We Are One (Ole Ola) and was due to take to the stage with the two musicians.
However, RadarOnline claims Jennifer realised it would be bad for her image if she didn’t show up. It is thought money was one of the reasons she dropped out of the gig in the first place.
J-Lo was in a back and forth with the World Cup about expenses. She had wanted them to cover everything for her, from private transportation, to her hotel and the costs associated for her entire entourage.’
Jennifer reportedly pulled out after the committee refused to fund her requests.
After assessing her situation, the musician is said to have realised that the show, which will fall on the same day as her new album A.K.A.’s release date, could be beneficial.
