Jennifer Lopez responded after facing backlash for performing a Motown tribute at the 61st Grammys. The singer and actress took the stage at Los Angeles' Staples Center on Sunday to pay homage to Motown. Lopez led the medley (which included "Dancing in the Street," "My Girl," and "Please Mr. Postman") and was joined by Smokey Robinson and Ne-Yo. Many people were upset that Lopez was part of the tribute and felt that a black artist should've represented Motown. The legendary label gave soul artists like Marvin Gaye, The Supremes, and The Jackson 5 their start in the music industry. Following her performance, Lopez defended her inclusion during an interview with "Entertainment Tonight'. "The thing about music is that it inspires all," she said. "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."
