Today, HollywoodReporter.com ran a piece called,"The J.Lo Effect: $15 Million Becoming the New Standard As Reality Salaries Soar." The article points out how American Idol producers unintentionally set off a gold rush last year when they agreed to pay Jennifer Lopez $12 million to replace judge Simon Cowell for the show's 10th season.
Since J.Lo scored that big payday, other A-list stars have demanded big-time paydays, including fellow Latina Christina Aguilera ($10 million for The Voice) and Howard Stern ($15 million to join the new season of America's Got Talent). But J.Lo, who is reportedly making a whopping $20 million for her second season with Idol, was the one who started the trend.
Not that we're surprised! Check out 9 other things J.Lo did...before anyone else!
First Latina To Be Named Most Beautiful
None of the women who were named Most Beautiful by People Magazine from 1990-2010 (including Michelle Pfeiffer, Jennifer Anniston, Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman, Halle Berry, and Jodi Foster), were Latina. On April 13th, 2011, People finally gave the cover of their Most Beautiful issue to a Latina: Jennifer Lopez! Not only was J.Lo the first Latina to be named People's Most Beautiful, but she was also the first to admit that it takes work to stay looking so fabulous. "The thing is, it's part of my job," said Lopez. "I don't want anybody thinking it's easy. It does take time and it's hard work. HDTV wide-screen is nobody's friend!"
