*When you’re a legendary singer, being bestowed awards comes with the territory.

Such is the case with Smokey Robinson, who recently received the Ella Award, named after jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald.

In a sit down with “Access Hollywood Live,” Mr. Robinson lets the hosts know that he appreciates the accolades, but that’s not why he does what he does.

“I don’t do this to get awards, and when I do it’s like icing on the cake because I don’t expect them,” he said.

Smokey also talks about his crush on Diana Ross from way back in the day when they were youngsters.
