Jennifer Lopez will get $12 million to pretend to know how to sing

Despite rumors of diva behavior which American Idol claims were started by the competition, Jennifer Lopez just inked a $12 million deal to be the third judge on American Idol.

According to the report, Lopez was hoping for movie and TV development deals to accompany and even larger Idol salary as well as input about her new co-judges, but Fox made no commitments and she settled for a cool $12.

“She’s very excited,” a source close to Lopez says of the final deal.

Having no discernible musical talent or onscreen charisma, this is a major coup for people like Heidi Montag, Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian who can only dream of pretending to know what they’re talking about while millions of viewers at home watch in utter disbelief.
