I'm no diva ... but I want an all-white dressing room for show

THERE'S just a little over a week before US superstar Jennifer Lopez (43) makes her Irish debut at the O2 in Dublin.

But despite her concert rider containing demands for an all-white dressing room and yellow roses with white trim, she has insisted that she isn't a diva when it comes to her backstage demands.

She'll be bringing her Dance Again world tour to these shores on Friday, October 19.

And she has stipulated that she wants a white dressing room with white couches, white candles and white curtains -- with no catering in the actual dressing room apart from beverages.

The separated star, who has sold 55 million albums worldwide, has asked for Evian water at room temperature, Snapple drinks and a variety of juices -- but no tomato, apple or grape juices.

Yet the star of The Wedding Planner has stood by her decision to be choosy about what she likes to chomp down on backstage and insists her demands aren't as unusual as people think.

"I think people love to look at them (riders) and go, 'Oh my God she wants M&Ms -- 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," she said.







GORGEOUS

In a far cry from the usual excesses of the pop world, the gorgeous star is also a devoted tee-totaller and never indulges in boozy nights out.

"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," she continued.

Jennifer is currently loved-up with younger man Casper Smart -- who may even be joining her at her Irish gig.

In July 2011, she split from her estranged husband Marc Anthony, with whom she has four-year-old twins Max and Emme.
