When asked about critics who called her performance "too adult" at this year's Spirit Awards, the 50-year-old told Variety, "That's honestly silliness."
"Both of us are really respectful performers who are moms, who have kids, who are very conscious of what we do,” she continued.

“I’m very proud of the performance that night," she concluded.
