Jennifer Lopez has denied the well-publicised rumour that she needs everything white "all the time".

Speaking on Big Boy TV, she said: "There's this rumour that I need to have everything white all the time... that's funny!"

The singer was talking on the YouTube show presented by Kurt "Big Boy" Alexander from LA radio station Power 106 FM .

She laughed all the way through the six-minute interview.

The 44-year-old giggled when she realised she was wearing all white, when asked the about the rumour.

Talking about media stories that label her a diva, she added: "Like crazy things, that I won't enter a room or won't look at people or talk to people. Those are the ones that I hate."

Big Boy then went on to question her about two of her previous partners, actor Ben Affleck and rapper Diddy (formerly named Puff Daddy), asking "if they were both drowning" and she could only save one, "who would it be?"

"I'd let both those drown," she yelled, as the room erupted in laughter.

"That's terrible! I'm just joking! Ben! Puffy! You know I love you. You know that."

The singer and actress dated Diddy from 1999 to 2001 and used to be engaged to Ben Affleck.

Lopez is currently a judge on reality TV show American Idol, where she was keen to save contestant Jena Irene, who is down to the last 11 in the competition.

After saving the 17-year-old with a judges' wild card the singer lobbied for her again on Wednesday night's live show.

Lopez released her seventh studio album Love? in 2011 and was last on tour in 2012 for her Dance Again World shows.
