Jennifer Lopez Is Going On Tour To Celebrate Her 50th Birthday

Before they even hit the stage Sunday night at the Grammys for a tribute to Motown, Smokey Robinson was defending the selection of Jennifer Lopez.

Lopez continued, while getting emotional, "Any type of music can inspire any type of artist ..." She'll be doing something not many 50-year-old people could: Going on tour. They were then joined by host Alicia Keys who helped her sing "Papa Was A Rolling Stone".

Meanwhile, R&B/Motown enthusiasts are pissed that Lopez reportedly lip-synced over classic Motown tracks with Robinson.

The 78-year-old icon bluntly said, "I don't think anyone who is intelligent is upset".

CNN has reached out to Robinson for additional comment.

It's safe to say that Jennifer Lopez's tribute to Motown was quite interesting.

But bad news for fans outside the United States as she will sadly only be performing in the US. The room was literally full of Black artists that could have participated.

He adds, "Kids of all races, worldwide, grew up loving the music of Motown, imitating our acts". "I'm getting ready for this movie that I'm going to do called Hustlers", she revealed.

However, despite her incredible routine, viewers were quick to call the star out over her Latina background - claiming the ceremony should have chosen a black singer.

In 1959, Berry Gordy founded Motown Records which housed some of music's biggest talents including Diana Ross, The Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, Gladys Knight & The Pips, The Isley Brothers and more. Among those struggles were the Black woman being oversexualized and marginalized.

Alex Rodriguez gave Jennifer Lopez the most "romantic" gift for their 2nd anniversary!

The pop star sang a string of tunes February 10 in celebration of the iconic Detroit-based label's songs, including "Please Mr. Postman", "My Girl", "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone", and "Money (That's What I Want)". And where were the FASHIONS?

Once you take a look at JLo's health regimen, you can see she shouldn't have any trouble keeping up pace traveling the country.
