Motown Tries to Defend Jennifer Lopez Grammy Tribute


Last night Jennifer Lopez performed a Motown tribute with Smokey Robinson at the 61st Grammy Awards.

Motown responds to the backlash...


After a deluge of negative responses the post was deleted.

Also, according to Twitter chatter because I didn't watch, apparently Jennifer Lopez thanked Smokey Robinson and Diana Ross but failed to mention Motown Founder Barry Gordy, who was also in the house.

True or false?

Motown deserved to be dragged for filth behind that fuckery. I don't know when my people are going to learn we have no friends outside of us, just people who use us to get on. It's always one of our people bringing in the others to be put one. We are always so quick to include others, in our story and know damn well they ain't riding with us. I can't stand some us.

Performance was burlequese. Her nor her team, research motown performances. She should have turned it down.

J Lo. Really? Not a single black female available, huh?

JLO performance was good I don't agree with their selection but I will give credit where it's due and IMO she danced her butt off - singing is still mediocre but she is a PERFORMER!

1:04 and there was the problem. There was nothing mediocre about a Motown Act. The Bytch should have sat her haven't associated with Blacks since 2002 ass down.

Mary J, Faith, Toni, Mariah, JSullivan, JHud, Chaka Khan, Fantasia, Brandy, Monica, Kelly Rowland, India Arie, Angie Stone, Tamia, Queen Latifah, Lauren Hill, Beyonce, Ledisi, Rihanna, Ciara, Jill Scott, Keyshia Cole, Ashanti, Sza, Ella Mae, Kelly Price, Chante Moore, Chrisette Michelle, Kehlani, Deborah Cox, Patti Labelle, Sade, Janet Jackson, Dionne Warwick, Vivian Green, Alicia Keys, Janelle Monae, Leona Lewis, Leta James and the list goes on......young and old, all these African American singers/vocalists and they chose Jennifer Lopez?? Someone needs to make it make sense. JLo cool, but she should not have given that performance and could have turned it down. I betcha a dollar they wouldn't get a Black woman to serenade or pay homage during a Country and Western tribute. They do us any kind of way...so sad:(

Tippie Toes said...

1:24p yes there was no way she could hit those MOTOWN legends notes...but she danced her butt off I get it though no not very accurate portrayal of MOTOWN!

Tippie Toes said...

1:28 On second thought you're correct about answer because Diana Ross sang her own tribute at least she still performed so yeah not getting the JLo choice.

Ya'll do understand this decision was made to instigate and there ya'll go like a bunch of sheep. Turn the dam TV off and don't watch just like I did if you so offended. Don't wanna see Jlo but the first one to tune in so you can talk trash. Wake up and tune out!

Ya think they would have Mary J Blige, Ciara or a Rihanna at the Latin Grammy;s honoring Celia Cruz???? Me thinks not. JLo must have the most rituals built up for the month. Alex the only motherfucka not clammering to marry this bitch what;s up with that. Diana Boss ass was not leaving that shit up to nobody she did her own tribute for her birthday Next Month.

8:04 You a damn lie

DaisyDooks said...

@8:04am - Blacks find kindship with Afro-Latinos, not Caucasoid/Mongoloid Latinos. You haven't been paying attention.

Jennifer Lopez is Caucasian. Her modified-ape gene code is RECESSIVE. Perhaps, you require visual aids.

DaisyDooks said...

Why was a white Latino chosen to perform a tribute to MoTown? Was there not a Black artist available? Motown is Black history.

Black deference to whiteness is despicable and inexcusable.

Stop being duped with Psy-Ops.

Wake up!
