J.Lo/Enrique Iglesias

Who's On Top?

5/2/2012 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

JenniferNow that Jennifer Lopez and Enrique Iglesias have announced their concert tour, the big issue is .... who gets top billing?

Lopez' manager, Benny Medina, tells TMZ, "Neither Jennifer nor Enrique care who opens or closes.  What we want to do is give the fans the best show possible and whatever that means, that's what we will do."

It's a big change from a year ago, when Enrique bailed on the Britney Spears concert tour because she was getting top billing ... and he wasn't having it.

We're told the NEW tour will be a "co-headliner show," with equal production value, money and time spent on both Jennifer and Enrique.

As for who opens and who follows, Medina tells TMZ it hasn't been worked out yet but it won't be a problem.  He also said if the venue has a bunch of screaming girls pining for Enrique, it would make total sense for Jennifer to go first.

An AEG rep involved in the concert tells us the plan is to have the two singers flip flop, with Jennifer going first one night and Enrique going first the next.  

For the record -- the AEG rep also told us Enrique had "no ego" about going last.

As always it's all about the promo and hype. He is much more internationally known then Lopez. This is nothing but money. When was the last time Lopez did a concert let alone sing?


The kids are going to pay money to see him.

J.Lo definately cares "Who's on Top". My staff and I had the displeasure of meeting her at the Mohegan Sun casino and she is one of the most pridefull and arrogant people I have ever met.

What?    

OMG TMZ! U Guys need to get Hispanics staff members. 1st of all the tour ALSO includes Wisin y Yandel which is also pictured. Enrique & them collaborated in the past and Jennifer just made a song with them. JLo & Enrique will be singing w/Wisin Y Yandel & not solo. Enrique have been recording SPANISH Albums since 1995 & have earned over than 30 awards. JLo is a USA Commodity with just a couple awards on her ass. The Btch can't sing which is why she seeks out singers like Pitbull to collaborate with. She has her people find famous Latin Actors like Eduardo Verastegui and William Levy to offer them lots of $ to be in her videos. People that think she is Bigger than Enrique must be non Hispanic.

I am sorry but the guy is so insecure that he wears a wig and or a hat.

I enjoy music and I can see how people can be attracted to a musician and be a fan. But why be attracted to someone so insecure he does not have the confidence to remove his hat and his hairpiece and just be himself?

There is nothing more unattractive than an insecure person...

According to Wikipedia. Enrique Iglesias has sold about $100 million albums world wide and Jennifer Lopez sold $55 million. If that is accurate then that would actually make him a lot bigger. Americans forget that there is more to the world then us.

What a wonderful idea if INS and Border Patrol were ticket takers who also checked immigration status as illegal concert goers prepare to enjoy a concert on U.S. soil.

Alternating nights makes the most sense. Jennifer is the bigger star but Enrique is the more talented singer.

uh huh    

DUMB SHE IS NOT. she has NEVER toured because she doesn't have the following and talent to pull off a tour by herself. NEVER toured. She and her manager know very well she needs to go on tour with others in order to get a crowd. she should open for Enrique because she doesn't have a fan base that would go to see her in a world tour etc... but she is not stupid enough to announce a tour with enrique if enrique wasn't stupid enough to ink a deal saying he will be her little sidekick... but SHE KNOWS very well she is HIS sidekick. but she is not going down like that. her talent is MARKETING.

Jennifer Lopez singing was so bad that when she went over to Japan and test her skills in the Japanese broadway, she was exposed. She can't sing.

During the Selena movie they wanted her to sing the songs but right away the family, directors and producers realized she couldn't, so she lip synched.

Jennifer Lopez is a U.S. made celeb. She got famous wearing a sleazy green dress going with Puffy Combs to an awards show. Only in America

On musical fame Enrique, JLo may be more famous but it's for being a celebrity personality now. But I sincerely doubt that her ego would allow someone else to be seen as 'bigger'.

There is NO WAY in the world Jennifer Lopez could ever pull enough audience that would pay to see her on tour. She's a a 42-year old lipsyncer that had to add a well-known singer like Enrique to her agenda, because other than that, her tour would be cancelled because of low ticket sales.
