The London Star reports Jennifer Lopez has been exhibiting more diva like behavior. Lopez had stern words for a builder working on her Los Angeles mansion. Why? For making eye contact as he spoke to her. She asked if he wouldn’t mind staring at her shoes as he addressed her. The report is similar to one that said extras on the video for ‘I’m Real’ were also banned from looking at Lopez because it made her feel ‘uncomfy.’

J.Lo seems to have forgiven Murder Inc.’s Irv Gotti thanking him in the speech, and perhaps Ja Rule himself, who reportedly was bragging about having sex with J.Lo during their visit to Ramstein Air Force Base to soldiers. Lopez said, “I didn’t expect this. Obviously. But, God, I’m a girl from the Bronx and hip-hop is everything to us, so I want to thank God, the fans, thank Ja and the whole crew Irv, and 7 and B.J. And everybody. I want to thank Sony, Corey Rooney, everybody over there and everybody involved with the video, especially Dave Myers who did it individually for us, so great. Thank you for writing the song [Ja Rule]. You’re the best.”
