Jennifer Lopez shot back at critics who said her Britain's Got Talent outfit was too risqué, saying "I think people are so much raunchier than I am. I feel like I'm so tame." Jennifer Lopez is firing back.

Not long after Britain's Got Talent viewers complained about her bod-baring season finale outfit, the 43-year-old "Live It Up" crooner voiced her stance on the supposed fashion faux pas.

"I think people are so much raunchier than I am," J.Lo said in an interview with BBC Radio 1. "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."

"No one complained at Billboard," she went on. "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!"

So, who might Jennifer be referring to with that "a lot of performers wear that" reference?

Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj are known for prancing around on stage in similar leotards/bodysuits, for example, as is Beyoncé, who wore a black leather number for her Superbowl performance, and another black bodysuit during her Chime for Change concert performance Sunday, just to name a few.

And although J. Lo didn't appear to let the hubbub phase her too much, she was a little more covered up when she performed the same song at Chime for Change in London, adding a fringe overlay and a flowy, sheer floor-length coat to her sequin-embellished leotard.

Nevertheless, this isn't the first time she has caused a fashion stir.

The pop diva first made waves when she showed off her killer curves in her infamous plunging green Versace dress at the Grammy Awards in 2000.

And to her credit, 13 years later, she's looking better than ever.
