"Who's stupid enough to protest Jennifer Lopez doing something for Motown?". As TooFab noted, not only is Lopez not black but her own music style is nothing like Motown's sound.

One person suggested the role should be handed to an artist like Beyonce or Kelly Rowland.

Lopez responded to the criticism by saying the songs were important to her family growing up, and that race shouldn't have played a role in her choice to perform.

Cops have said they found plenty of surveillance video, but none that captured the incident. They have yet to locate footage of the actual attack.

So why was she selected to deliver a performance honoring a legendary label that's largely featured black artists?

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 tell people 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".

He added that the child will now be transferred to a different hospital where social services will look after her future welfare. Others have also been saying that the mother of the baby should not be judged because no one knows her circumstances .

Chatting to Entertainment Tonight, the On The Floor songstress said: 'I could cry. You can't tell people what they can and can't do, what they should sing or not sing.

Turns out that Lopez had both critics and supporters afterward and Robinson tweeted her a thanks.

Robinson elaborated, "Motown was music for everybody".

Jack Considine, Dave Brave Heart said there's been a great deal of speculation that Klobuchar would be announcing her candidacy. Next week, Klobuchar will begin a multi-state tour with stops to Wisconsin and Iowa, according to a press release.

So, fortunately for Lopez, no matter what people say, she'll always have her no. 1 fan at her side.
