  • Jennifer Lopez Grammys 2019

Her performance comes days ahead of Motown's tribute concert to celebrate the label's 60th anniversary. She was later joined by Grammys host Alicia Keys, Ne-Yo and Smokey Robinson, who joined her to sing My Girl.

Speaking to the confusion behind her involvement in the tribute, Lopez said, "The thing about music is that it inspires all. You can't tell people what to love", she said. The 49-year-old singer stopped by the The Ellen Degeneres Show and revealed juicy details of her and Alex's relationship, including their favorite body parts and what they wear to bed.

Lopez and her boyfriend, Alex Rodriguez, recently completed an epic 10-day no carb, no sugar diet, and it turns out she tried the intense regimen for a reason.

"I don't think anyone who is intelligent is upset", he told the outlet. "I think anyone is upset is stupid".

Fresh off an energetic (if divisive) performance at Sunday's Grammy Awards, Jennifer Lopez is gearing up to hit the road once again.

The performance was shrouded in controversy as fans far and wide became immediately outraged by the announcement that Lopez would headline the Motown tribute.

- She IsAble (@blueladybug22)I was not pleased with this J-Lo bidi bidi bom bom "Motown" performance. Why?? This came on the heels of a controversial appearance on The Grammy Awards doing a Motown tribute. Kids of all races, worldwide, grew up loving the music of Motown, imitating our acts.

"They know how much I have been influenced by that music and so it was a natural fit for them", she added of Gordy and company.

"I'm getting ready for this movie I'm going to do call Hustlers and I have to play a stripper", she explains, noting that her trainer challenged her to cut out carbs and sugar.

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.

Lalah Hathaway's whole body and self was sitting in the audience during a soulless Motown tribute. "I think that's why I'm the performer I am today, because of that music". If not J Lo, who would you have liked to see take the stage?
