Before they even hit the stage Sunday night at the Grammys for a tribute to Motown, Smokey Robinson was defending the selection of Jennifer Lopez.
"I don't think anyone who is intelligent is upset," Robinson told Variety. "I think anyone who is upset is stupid."
Lopez joined the Motown legend and singer Ne-Yo for an energetic tribute to the label founded by Berry Gordy in Detroit in 1959.
Robinson didn't take too kindly to social media complaints that Lopez was not a good choice for the performance.
"Motown was music for everybody. Everybody," Robinson said. "Who's stupid enough to protest Jennifer Lopez doing anything for Motown?"
