Jennifer Lopez Was ‘A Complete Diva’ Before Grammys Motown Performance

Jennifer Lopez Grammys 2019

According to USA Today, Lopez told DeGeneres that she and Rodriguez bought a fixer-upper house, and Lopez told Rodriguez how she would love Gaines to help with the project, according to USA Today.

On social media, many folks noted that the choice wasn't a great stylistic match for J.Lo, and others wondered why contemporary black singers, who built their careers on the legacy of Motown, hadn't been chosen instead, especially during Black History Month.
