Lopez also opened up about her performance on the Grammy red carpet, telling Ryan Seacrest that she wanted to dedicate the performance to her mother.

"It was for my mom". But for anyone who'd been following along online over the last week, the tribute was indisputably controversial; Lopez came under fire after she was announced as the headliner for the tribute a few days earlier.

"You can't tell people what they can and can't do - what they should sing or not sing", Lopez told "Entertainment Tonight" in a Twitter clip, below.

"Singing up there with Smokey Robinson, like, I gotta pinch myself", Lopez said.

She added: "I grew up with this music and me and my sisters, the three of us, we were, like, the backups".

The projections are based on the downward trajectory of the world's insect mass, which is thought to be falling by 2.5% per year. In ten years you will have a quarter less, in 50 years only half left and in 100 years you will have none.

It's exactly because of her lifelong love of the genre, and the impact it has had on her career, that the singer is not letting any criticism get under her skin. In an interview with Variety at Clive Davis' pre-Grammy party on Saturday, Robinson defended the decision asserting that Motown's music is for everybody. Lopez's performance did little to smooth things over with these viewers. "Any type of music can inspire any type of artist", she told the publication.

As we reported, J.Lo took the stage Sunday night with Alicia Keys, Ne-Yo, and Smokey Robinson, performing hits of the past like Dancing in the Street, Do You Love Me, The Best Things in Life Are Free, all while wearing a very J.Lo-y sparkling one-piece.

Clearly, people were upset on behalf of the Motown legends they grew up loving. "You gotta do what's in your heart".

The singer, who now has a residency in Las Vegas, shared how Grammy producers and Motown Records founder Berry Gordy were "thrilled" about her tribute. "They know how much I have been influenced by that music and so it was a natural fit for them". "But for some people, [it wasn't], and that's OK".
