Jennifer Lopez tries to get past Motown-tribute controversy

Jennifer Lopez tries to get past Motown-tribute controversy

Fresh off her Motown tribute at the Grammys, Jennifer Lopez is returning to the road on her first tour in over six years.

"I don't think anyone who is intelligent is upset", Robinson told Variety before the event. Everybody", Robinson said. "Who's stupid enough to protest Jennifer Lopez doing anything for Motown? Well, Smokey wasn't feeling the backlash and took to Instagram to defend her again. The room was literally full of Black artists that could have participated.

Lalah Hathaway's whole body and self was sitting in the audience during a soulless Motown tribute.

The singer, who now has a residency in Las Vegas, shared how Grammy producers and Motown Records founder Berry Gordy were "thrilled" about her tribute.

When queried about why Lopez was the right fit the performance, Robinson said simply Motown's music is universal.

Lopez and her boyfriend, Alex Rodriguez, recently completed an epic 10-day no carb, no sugar diet, and it turns out she tried the intense regimen for a reason. They argued the Grammys should've chosen an African American singer.

"Grammy failed on the Motown tribute #GRAMMYs".

After she finished, she told the crowd that she was "grateful" to be here tonight.

She went on to say that 'Honestly, I do not even know that Alex is listening to me half of the time, so I am talking to my friends and my sister over Christmas.

The superstar announced plans for her It's My Party tour in an appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" Wednesday. "Singing up there with Smokey Robinson, like, I gotta pinch myself".

Motown's reputation for diversity and inclusion is a source of pride for the musician he explains, so the discussion surrounding Jennifer's performance is upsetting.

Lopez performed "Please Mr. Postman" while wearing a black ensemble with white feathers and accompanied by a group of dancers.

Once you take a look at JLo's health regimen, you can see she shouldn't have any trouble keeping up pace traveling the country.
