Jennifer Lopez releases 'Ain't Your Mama' music video
UPI News Service, 05/06/2016
Jennifer Lopez champions a rebellion for gender equality in her latest music video, "Ain't Your Mama."
The 46-year-old singer and former "American Idol" judge released the clip, directed by Cameron Duddy, Friday morning on YouTube.
The video opens with JLo having a tense phone conversation with her man in a secluded alley before sitting in front of a camera for a formal address.
Then, sound bites from Hillary Clinton and other influential women are heard speaking out in support of equal rights and equal pay.
"Look, I don't have to tell you things are bad," she tells the camera. "Everybody knows things are bad. Taking for granted, ignored, overlooked, under appreciated. We have a big, big problem ladies. First, you've got to get mad!"
Lopez represents several types of women -- from a 1950s homemaker to an influential modern-day TV anchor -- in the music video, highlighting men's taking advantage of their work throughout history.
In the end, Lopez rallies a large group of women for a march in the city streets, where she dons a white body suit and boots designed by Rihanna for the final scene.
