Jennifer Lopez has spoken out in support of Rihanna and Lady GaGa's raunchy routines, insisting the music scene would be "boring" without the pop stars' attention-grabbing antics.
Rihanna has long courted controversy with her saucy stage acts - her 2010 performance on Britain's The X Factor prompted thousands of viewers to complain to the U.K. TV watchdog.
The Poker Face hitmaker also has her fair share of critics for her boundary-pushing performances, but Lopez is backing her pop peers and is full of praise for their sets.
She tells Britain's Star magazine, "It's part of our job to push the envelope and test the boundaries. If you don't, it gets boring.
"So I love everything. I'm an artist and I love that's what they do. You can't ask them to not be who they are."
