Jennifer Lopez has faced some backlash for being chosen to lead the Motown tribute at the Grammy’s last night. She released a statement to Entertainment Tonight:
“The thing about music is that it inspires all. Any type of music can inspire any type of artist. You can’t tell people what to love. You can't tell people what they can and can’t do, what they should sing or not sing. You gotta do what’s in your heart.”
Jennifer also said that Grammys producers and Motown legend Berry Gordy were happy that she did the tribute. She said that she was humbled at their offer and that she was greatly influenced by the music.
Jennifer said she did the performance for her mother and that "It’s just a dream come true."
