It would the first Rio Carnival as the headliner of a group of celebrities, including Brazilian and foreign stars, for Lopez, who would be a guest of Brazilian beer company Brahma.

The nation’s top 13 top samba schools will parade through the Sambadrome on February 19 and 20.

In addition, JLo will reportedly star in a Carnival-themed advertising campaign that Brahma will start airing this week.

The brewing company didn’t say just how much Lopez was being paid to participate at Carnival, but the Brazilian press reported she could bank up to $2 million. Not a bad day for the American Idol judge!
