Jennifer Lopez is already over Grammys’ Motown tribute criticism

Jennifer Lopez turns 50 this year and to celebrate the special occasion she is inviting her fans to come and party with her.

"This is disrespectful to my entire city".

The diet certainly proved its worth at the 2019 GRAMMYs, where J.Lo slayed during the Motown tribute. Though she has been performing regularly in Las Vegas with her "All I Have" residency at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, this will be her first tour since 2012. Huffington Post editor Phillip Lewis posted, "I'll never understand why they didn't choose someone Black for a MOTOWN tribute".

While another commented: "Jennifer Lopez is doing the Motown tribute and when Janelle Monae [sic] is right there and I just don't understand the creative decision".

In response to the criticism, Motown tweeted and then deleted a statement in defense of Lopez.

"Any type of music can inspire any type of artist ..."

On January 12, 1959, Berry Gordy redefined music when he founded Motown Records at 2648 West Grand Boulevard, Detroit. With a medley of huge Motown classics, she put up a dramatic performance in a duet with Smokey Robinson and Alicia Keys. But when the show announced that Jennifer Lopez would be included in the performance, people weren't quite sure what was going to go down.

"You're a sick person".

'You gotta do what's in your heart'.

She added: "I grew up with this music and me and my sisters, the three of us, we were, like, the backups". "But for some people, [it wasn't], and that's OK. I'm just very humbled and honoured to be able to have sung those songs".

"I don't think anyone who is intelligent is upset", he told Variety ahead of the show.

"I was like, 'Wouldn't it be awesome to have her do it for us?' But she doesn't do anything outside of Waco (Texas)", Lopez told DeGeneres. The "Motown Sound" was pivotal on shaping the pop music landscape of today, not only giving African American singers a path to stardom but singers from all backgrounds.
