  • Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez at grammys 2019

Jennifer Lopez and Smokey Robinson perform onstage during the Grammy Awards in LA.

Jennfier however was having none of it, and after the show she said: 'The thing about music is that it inspires all.

About the very special present he gave her, Jen told the host that she is a big fan of Fixer Upper and she casually mentioned during a conversation with her sister how awesome it would be if Joanna and Chip Gaines remodeled her and Alex's fixer-upper that they got near the water. 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.

"I don't think anyone who is intelligent is upset", Robinson told Variety before the event. "Everybody", he said. "Who's stupid enough to protest Jennifer Lopez doing anything for Motown?".

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

'Apex Legends' racks up 25 million players in its first week
During its first three days, Apex Legends drew in 10 million players , 2.5 million of which were during the first day. It remains to be seen if seasonal events are also launched like with other Battle Royale games.

But criticism aside, J. Lo had a very meaningful motivation behind her performance: her Motown super-fan mom, Guadalupe.

When the Grammys announced that tonight's show would include a tribute to the music of Motown, it was fitting. How do you do a Motown tribute without an ALL BLACK cast of artists?!

"Grammy failed on the Motown tribute #GRAMMYs". "We were The Temptations and we [would] just sing with her and I feel it's a dream come true".

Berry Gordy, who stood during Lopez's performance, founded Motown Records in 1959. So needless to say, J Lo's performance didn't sit well with many who questioned why a Black woman wasn't chosen to perform the tribute. Many saw it as an opportunity for Lopez to step aside and give someone else a chance to have the spotlight.

The former Yankee set up a call with Gaines, 40, after he heard J.Lo mention to friends and family that she wanted to enlist the help of the HGTV star to assist her with her own fixer upper home. And where were the FASHIONS? If not J Lo, who would you have liked to see take the stage?
