As we previously told you , folks on social media were up in arms when it was announced that Jennifer Lopez would be leading the Motown tribute on last night’s GRAMMY telecast, but at least one Motown legend has her back – Smokey Robinson.
“I don’t think anyone who is intelligent is upset,” Smokey told “Variety” this weekend. “I think anyone who is upset is stupid.”
Robinson, who also performed during last night’s tribute, added the reason J.Lo has credibility was because of her “growing up in her Hispanic neighborhood” but then added, “Motown was music for everybody. Everybody. Who’s stupid enough to protest Jennifer Lopez doing anything for Motown.”
