Jennifer Lopez insists she's not a diva

Jennifer Lopez (BANG)

Jennifer Lopez has scoffed at claims she makes outrageous backstage demands and insists she doesn't ask for anything out of the ordinary on her tours. She insists she isn't a diva when it comes to her rider demands.

The singer-and-actress has earned a reputation as a demanding star, but Jennifer is adamant she doesn't ask for anything extraordinary backstage, she is just particular about the things she does want.

She said: "I think people love to look at them (riders) and go, 'Oh my God she wants M&M'S ... she's crazy!' I think everyone has their list of things that make you feel comfortable ... like a certain kind of potato chip or water. I think the crazy ones are made up."

The 43-year-old star - who is currently on tour with Enrique Iglesias - and her two sisters were taught by their mother Guadalupe that drinking to excess was bad for you and her words have stuck with J.Lo for life.

She said: "I'm not a drinker. I think my mom just ingrained in us since we were very small that it was just not a good thing to do so I just never got into it."

Jennifer has four-year-old twins, Max and Emme, with her estranged husband Marc Anthony, and although they separated in July 11 she insists they still have a deep love for one another because of their kids.

In an interview on the 'The Kyle & Jackie O Show' on Australia radio station 2Day FM, she said: "It has been difficult, just like any divorce, especially when it involves children but at the end of the day we have a lot of love for each other and we obviously love our children more than anything so at the end of the day we have to make it work."
