Starbucks Tells Jennifer Hudson Thanks, But No Thanks

Usually, when celebrities demand things backstage, they get them. However it looks like someone at Starbucks put their foot down and refused to give in to idol-turned-diva Jennifer Hudson.

Apparently Jennifer was supposed to perform at the annual Starbucks shareholder meeting in Seattle. However, according to TMZ, after her agent made some zany demands, Starbucks pulled the plug on the performance. Turns out that Chairman Howard Schultz didn't like the way her agent was dealing with his people and said enough is enough.

So what were the zany demands? Try FIVE town cars (herself, hair and makeup artists, security, and her assistant), humidifiers backstage and baked chicken wings at 10:00am. I guess it was the chicken wings that was just too much. However, in Jennifer's defense, she apparently didn't know about the demands, her team came up with them all on their own.

Chicken wings... at 10am? At that time of day I'm more about fresh yogurt, muffins and pancakes. I'd probably demand eggs benedict and waffles... How about you guys, if you were a famous diva, what would you demand at 10am?

She needs new peoples if they are demanding all of these things for her. Kudos to her talent but when does that make you unappreciative of just having a gig to go to? There are countless other divas who would give up the sequined dresses and false eyelashes for another go at it. JHud's people need to get a reality check!

non-fat lattes and blueberry pancakes with lots of maple syrup. And some fresh fruit, maybe a banana and some raspberries. If I were famous I'd get really fat!! And that's BS that she pinned the blame on her agent, Jennifer is such a diva wannabe you totally know she requested all that shit.
