The irony of the very sexy J.Lo Motown revue is that Berry Gordy had the women of Motown tame their sexy so as to not fall into the Jezebel, highly sexed trope which White America places black women in! So they could have NEVER given a performance like that, ladies at all times!— bevysmith (@bevysmith) February 11, 2019

J Lo dancing, all those dancers and theatrics that’s not MOTOWN. I don’t care what anyone says. The Grammys could’ve found a better artist(s) to do that tribute— shannon sharpe (@ShannonSharpe) February 11, 2019

I’m actually upset that J Lo is doing this Motown tribute in her Selena voice #Grammys— George M Johnson (@IamGMJohnson) February 11, 2019

Understanding the history of Motown means knowing it was a symbol of Black agency in a time when Black creativity was being stolen.— mercury is here so I am not 😂 (@MsPackyetti) February 11, 2019
This is why, in the most cursed #BHM in modern history, proline are upset about J. Lo doing the tribute.

Kelly Rowland ain’t want to bump like this?
Ciara didn’t want to level up on stage?
HOW did we get to the point where someone thought a J Lo Motown tribute was ok during #BlackHistoryMonth?
