"I don't think anyone who is intelligent is upset".
Robinson agreed with Lopez and stood by Grammy organisers who selected the Latina star to perform, calling the backlash "stupid". However, Robinson defended Lopez from critics while speaking to Variety ahead of her performance on Saturday night.
Lopez said she dedicated her performance to her mother. But it's more than that he reminded. He added, "Motown was music for everybody".
Robinson said those who call Motown "music for Black people" are "trying to set us back a hundred years". 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.
But as venerable as the 78-year-old legend is, Lopez's tribute was confusing - you know, on account of her not sounding remotely like a Motown singer, since she isn't one. Lopez came out to perform some of the biggest hits, including "Dancing in the Street", "Mr. Postman", "The Best Things in Life Are Free", and "Do You Love Me?" there was a little bit of Ne-Yo thrown in for good measure, and everyone's fears seemed to be confirmed. Lopez said. "I totally fangirled out!" They argued the Grammys should've chosen an African American singer. Many were quick to criticize the Grammys for honoring the genre of artists like The Supremes, Gladys Knight, and The Temptations with the latin songstress as opposed to, well, any black performer.
However, any Motown fans were not pleased and wondered why the Academy would honour the legendary record label with Lopez instead of a black artist, particularly during Black History Month.
