"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.

Antonio Brown demands Steelers trade privately and publicly
Brown was additionally found guilty of reckless driving after failing to make his court appearance in Pittsburgh earlier Tuesday. The mother of one of his children also filed a police report after claiming he pushed her during a dispute over their daughter.

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".

Davis needs extra time to make weight for title defence
He got up at nine, but when referee Jack Reiss asked him in both English and Spanish if he wanted to continue, he didn't answer. A monster right hook from Davis broke through Ruiz's defence and cracked his opponents nose before Ruiz went down to one knee.

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".

With rising temperatures increasingly destroying the bears' Arctic habitats, interactions with humans are becoming more common . And neither are ill-advised human actions that can lure the bears. "It is migration from the south to the north".

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