Beyonce Knowles Carter has built her entire career stealing from other artists. Now her fans are accusing superstar Jennifer Lopez of ripping off Beyonce's performance from the 2014 Grammy Awards.

J.Lo's performance at the 2020 American Music Awards on Sunday night drew comparisons to Beyonce's "Drunk in Love" set at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards.

The 51-year-old Latina singer was joined by Colombian singer Maluma to perform "Pa Ti" and "Lonely" from the soundtrack of their upcoming movie Marry Me.

While many took to social media to praise Jennifer for her incredible performance, Beyonce's fans were quick to point out the similarities between her performance and Beyonce's performance six years ago.

"Does anyone notice that J.Lo is ripping off Beyonce on her performance at the amas," one fan wrote, while another added, "JLO really stole Beyoncé's whole drunk in love performance. Copied everything, down to the outfit."

Fans noted that both women sported wet look bobs, and Jennifer donned a black bodysuit that was similar to the one Beyonce wore for her Grammys performance.

Both stars also started their performances sitting on a chair, with black, blue and red lighting on the stage.

However, others were quick to jump to Jennifer's defense, pointing out that Beyonce's creative thievery is legendary:

"You're joking, right? If you think for 1 second that this is Beyonce's concept, you are a pop-culture illiterate. It's homage to Cell Block Tango from Chicago (the movie/play, NOT the city). It predates both JLo's and Beyonce's careers. #ResearchTHENpost."

And another added: "Girl... Beyonce did not invent black swimsuits and wet hair bob type look... That's just how Jlo looks in the MV (music video) for that song. Calm down."

ABC censors were said to be "freaking out" over risqué performances by Jennifer Lopez (left) and Megan Thee Stallion at the 2020 American Music Awards on Sunday night.

According to Page Six, a source said Lopez, 51, whose sexy Super Bowl halftime performance triggered over 1,300 complaints about her "strip club act," was set to outdo herself in a "steamy" duet with Colombian singer Maluma.

But Lopez's AMA performance was tame by stripper industry standards.

Censors were also nervous about the impossibly scanty costume to be worn by Billboard magazine's Rapper of the Year, Megan Thee Stallion. But that turned out to be a false alarm as well. The black lacy negligee Megan wore during her sultry set was nothing television viewers haven't seen before.

This year's AMAs, hosted by Taraji P. Henson, was broadcast live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

The funniest moment of the night was when Henson shook her butt at a life-size cutout of semi-retired pop singer Beyonce's face.

The most scandalous attires of the evening were pop singer Ciara Wilson and male-to-female trans actor Laverne Cox flashing a little leg.

Ciara was the first presenter at the American Music Awards. She rocked a flowing red dress with a plunging neckline and black, thigh-high hooker boots. She presented the award for Favorite Male Artist - Soul/R&B to The Weeknd, who wore stage makeup and bandages to promote a movie role.

Ciara's hair was done up in extension braids so tight that it looked like her scalp was screaming to be set free. The wife of Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson completed her look with a pair of silver hoop earrings and several rings.

Rich the Kid penned an open letter to his girlfriend Tori Brixx after he objectified her at the 2019 American Music Awards.

The Atlanta rapper was heavily criticized for pawing and slobbering all over the busty 29-year-old Instagram model on the red carpet.

Many said the disgraceful misogynistic display was not in keeping with the family-oriented music awards.

On Wednesday, Rich apologized to Tori, saying he was "under the influence" when he treated her like a human blow up doll on the red carpet.

In a photo caption, the 27-year-old rapper wrote:

"My life is everything with you & nothing without, I love you more than anything on earth I want to sincerely apologize for my behavior this weekend I was either drunk or high but that still does not excuse it. I would never disrespect my wife in any way or any day I can only treat with utmost respect for being the women Of my dreams & the best mother to our child."

Rich, who was born Dimitri Roger, is among hip-hop's sub genre of mumble rappers. He is best known for his hits "Plug Walk" and "New Freezer" off his debut album The World Is Yours.

Last year's telecast of ABC's American Music Awards hit a record all-time low in the Nielsen television ratings. If the ratings improve for tonight's AMAs telecast, ABC can thank Lizzo and her tiny Valentino purse. The purse is barely big enough to hold one Trojan condom and maybe a throat lozenge.

The morbidly obese "Truth Hurts" singer turned heads when she meandered down the red carpet wearing an orange, one-shouldered mini dress and a lacefront wig with side swept bangs. According to People magazine, she accessorized her frock with strappy white Stuart Weitzman sandals and the world's most expensive condom holder - a tiny silver Valentino purse.

"There's only three in the world," Lizzo said, as photographers zoomed in on the mini bag. When asked what she managed to pack inside the mini clutch, Lizzo responded, "I got tampons in here, a flask of tequila, condoms..."

Photos of the tiny fashion accessory went viral across all social media platforms. Social media users couldn't get enough of Lizzo's personal style.

The American Music Awards got underway at 8 p.m. Sunday. Lizzo, 31, is up for 3 awards, including best new artist, soul/R&B song of the year and soul/R&B female artist of the year. Last week, she scored 8 Grammy nominations, including record of the year and song of the year for "Truth Hurts," album of the year for Cuz I Love You and best new artist.

Diana Ross and grandson Raif Henok Kendrick go grocery shopping

Joe wrote in to express his disappointment over my Diana Ross post which simply pointing out what other people were saying about Ms. Ross ignoring her 8-year-old grandson Raif Kendrick during the 2017 American Music Awards.

Please note that Sandrarose.com did not give an opinion on whether Ms. Ross snubbed her adorable grandson onstage. In fact, Sandrarose.com posted photos of Ms. Ross and the boy going grocery shopping. That hardly sounds like I disrespected the R&B legend.
