Smokey Robinson Defends J-Lo

Smokey Robinson defended Jennifer Lopez’s Grammys Motown performance…again. He said that Motown is about breaking all color barriers and anyone who thinks there is something wrong with a Hispanic woman showcasing Motown is completely missing the point.

The singer-songwriter posted a tribute to J-Lo saying she did an awesome job and called out critics saying, “you’re trying to set us back a hundred years.”

J-Lo Defends Motown Tribute

Jennifer Lopez has responded to all the critics who didn’t think she was the appropriate choice for the Motown tribute during the Grammys. While talking to Entertainment Tonight, J-Lo said that music is for everyone and you can’t tell her what to do. She added that “any type of music can inspire any type of artist. You gotta do what’s in your heart.”

Smokey Robinson, who sang with Jen during the performance, came to her defense saying, “anyone who is upset is stupid.” So, there you have it.
