Jennifer Lopez defends wardrobe choice that drew complaints on Britain's Got Talent
The singer performed on Britain's Got Talent earlier this week wearing just a tiny black leotard, fishnet tights and thigh-high boots.
Many responded with shock to her sexy getup on the family show, with UK advertising watchdog
Jennifer wore a red take on the look at this year's Billboard Music Awards and stands by her choice of clothing.
"I think people are so much raunchier than I am. I feel like I’m so tame. We wore it at Billboard and Britain’s Got Talent said they wanted exactly the same. So I thought I’d wear the outfit in black," she explained to BBC Radio 1.
"No one complained at Billboard. I think people just like to talk. It was a body suit. A lot of performers wear that these days. It is standard stage clothes. I’m not going to walk down the street like that!"
During the show, Jennifer performed an energetic dance routine that saw her jumping and sliding across the stage.
The garment left little to the imagination, but the 43-year-old assured fans she would never put too much on display.
"Sure, absolutely," she answered when asked if she was wearing anything underneath.
"I’m a pro – I know what I’m doing. I would never take those types of risks or anything like that. You should see my knees. In rehearsals I really banged my knees up from sliding and dancing on the floor.
"Luckily with that outfit, which is why I wore it on Billboard and in Britain’s Got Talent, is that I can wear a very small knee pad underneath, ‘cause I have those tall boots. I was so happy that I could wear it as I was very raw from rehearsals and I cut it open the day before."
Despite criticism from some more conservative viewers, Britain's Got Talent judge Simon Cowell was impressed with Jennifer, calling her "world class".
