Despite the backlash, the 49-year-old took the stage at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards to perform hits like "Dancing in the Street", "Do You Love Me", "Money (That's What I Want)" and "Please Mr. Postman". But viewers thought it was not right for Lopez to be honouring such an important time in black music because, frankly, she isn't black.
"Regardless of feelings and opinions about the #Grammys tribute performance, can we take a minute to celebrate the history and the power of #Motown, its artists and its music?" In an interview with Variety at Clive Davis' pre-Grammy party on Saturday, Robinson defended the decision asserting that Motown's music is for everybody. "You can't tellpeople what they can and can't do - what they should sing or not sing". "I grew up on all those songs and because my mom loved him so much she passed him on to us". "You gotta do what's in your heart".
Turns out that Lopez had both critics and supporters afterward and Robinson tweeted her a thanks.
Robinson elaborated, "Motown was music for everybody".
