Jennifer Lopez turns Motown tribute into own zesty show

Jennifer Lopez turns Motown tribute into own zesty show

The 78-year-old icon bluntly said, "I don't think anyone who is intelligent is upset".

"Grammy failed on the Motown tribute #GRAMMYs".

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.

According to USA Today, Lopez told DeGeneres that she and Rodriguez bought a fixer-upper house, and Lopez told Rodriguez how she would love Gaines to help with the project, according to USA Today.

Clearly, people were upset on behalf of the Motown legends they grew up loving.

Prior to the show, Smokey Robinson publicly lauded Lopez's appointment for the tribute, telling Variety, "Motown was music for everybody".

However, any Motown fans were not pleased and wondered why the Academy would honour the legendary record label with Lopez instead of a black artist, particularly during Black History Month.

Jennifer Lopez turned the Motown tribute into the J-Lo show. Motown churned out Black artist after Black artist who became icons of music in a time when Black people were combating overt racism on the daily.

"Hey man, Motown was music for everybody".

Robinson said those who call Motown "music for Black people" are "trying to set us back a hundred years".

"I'm going to say I love his arms", Lopez decides, amid constant teasing from DeGeneres. After all, it's Motown's 60th anniversary. "It's such a good moment. You are a sick person", Lopez responds through laughter. This was the definition of self determination. Many saw it as an opportunity for Lopez to step aside and give someone else a chance to have the spotlight. I mean, I desperately wanted to see at least ONE Diana wig.

And while the multi-talented star was on point with her outfit and stage design for the performance, many viewers were left baffled as to why bosses had chosen Jennifer for the tribute.
