J.Lo’s New Video Is The Perfect Response To Mansplaining We’ve Been Looking For

Jennifer Lopez just released her new music video for “Ain’t Your Mama” and… it. Is. EVERYTHING. ??

The video starts with powerful — we mean POWERFUL — quotes from female activists like Hillary Clinton…

History: made. Text CONGRATS to 47246 to tell Hillary you'll be by her side for the next part of this campaign. #iowacaucus

“Human rights are women’s rights and women’s rights are human rights once and for all,” Clinton told a crowd in Beijing at the United Nations Fourth World Congress on Women.

…Patricia Arquette…

“It’s our time to have wage equality once and for all and equal rights for women in the United States of America,” Arquette told the nation during the 87th Academy Awards.

(Btw, J.Lo reacted to Arquette’s comments like this:)

…and Gloria Steinem.

@gloriasteinem has clocked a half-century as an activist, journalist and feminist leader. Now, at 82, she’s producing and hosting her first TV series. Beginning on Tuesday on @viceland, her show, “Woman,” will explore human rights and violence against women all over the world. “What I hope is, seeing it will be the closest thing to being on the ground yourself,” @gloriasteinem said. Her collaboration with a company that made its name on bro-centric content was hardly an obvious match. @gloriasteinem knew of the brand’s “very masculine reputation,” as she put it. But “Woman,” which is produced by an all-female team and explores topics ranging from child marriage in Zambia to sexual attacks in the U.S. military, is not an easy watch. @gloriasteinem was adamant that it would present a complex portrait of its subjects and offer viewers a way to become involved. The photographer @malinfezehai photographed #GloriaSteinem on the terrace of the @vice office in Brooklyn.

“This is no simple reform. It really is a revolution,” Steinem said at the National Women’s Political Caucus in 1971.

The intro alone has us like…

But the rest of J.Lo’s music video is full of important lessons for both men AND women. Let’s count them.

Like “I ain’t gon’ be cooking all day, I ain’t your mama.”

1. It’s important to appreciate your woman and her hard work.

Just because you’re a man doesn’t mean you have the right to be a tool to your better half. Emphasis on better.

“I ain’t gon’ do your laundry, I ain’t your mama.”

2. If you don’t appreciate your lover, things are gonna be pretty bad for you.

Me: Now pick up the roast, Hector. Looks like you have a mess to clean up.

“I ain’t your mama, boy, I ain’t your mama.”

3. Let’s start acknowledging just how important women are to corporate America.

FuckIt

Women only make up 5 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs, and that is an all-time high. (WTF?!) Clearly, there are more women trying to climb that ladder.

“When you gon’ get your act together?”

4. Women, especially coworkers, are NOT around for your objectification, OK?

Keep the eyes up here and your day will be A LOT better. ?

“I ain’t your mama.”

5. LOVE YOUR CURVES, HONEY!

Because as J.Lo says, “Lucky to have these curves.”

“No, I ain’t your mama.”

Preach! ?

The Rosalía And Billie Eilish Collab Is Here And You’ll Want To Hear It

The Rosalía And Billie Eilish Collab Is Here And You’ll Want To Hear It

At long last, that Rosalía and Billie Eilish collaboration is here. The Spanish singer teamed up with the pop superstar for “Lo Vas A Olvidar,” which will be a part of the soundtrack to HBO series Euphoria.

The hotly-anticipated collaboration was nearly two years in the making. Eilish first confirmed that she was working with Rosalía back in Feb. 2019 in an interview with the BBC. Rosalía was open in follow-up interviews about how their song was unfinished because both artists couldn’t find the time to get together again. “Can’t wait to finish our song,” she wrote on Twitter in March 2019.

While in quarantine during the COVID-19 pandemic, Rosalía told Apple Music’s Zane Lowe in April 2020 that she found the time to finish working on the song. She was only waiting for Eilish’s vocals to come in to wrap things up.

Following a recent wave of Anglo artists teaming up with Latin music’s superstars, Eilish released “Lo Vas A Olvidar” with Rosalía. On the atmospheric track, Eilish sings in Spanish about walking away from a toxic relationship. Both Grammy-winning singers beautifully harmonize with the heartbreaking lyrics. In the song’s few English lines, they repeat on the chorus, “Can you let it go?” This Eilish and Rosalía crossover is a subtle yet stunning moment.

“Lo Vas A Olvidar” is not actually the first time that Eilish has sung in Spanish. She’s a Carla Morrison fan and she’s covered the Mexican singer’s “Eres Tú” in the past. Eilish’s Spanish pronunciation remains on-point.

The second season of Euphoria starring Zendaya will premiere on HBO on Jan. 24. “Lo Vas A Olvidar” will be featured in the episode “Part 2: Jules.” Rosalía and Eilish’s next albums are due out later this year.

Jennifer Lopez And Matthew McConaughey Honor The 20th Anniversary Of ‘The Wedding Planner’

Sony Pictures Releasing

2001. A year of quite a lot of big events and don’t fans of The Wedding Planner know it!

Twenty years ago the beloved romantic comedy starring Jennifer Lopez as a cynical but ambitious wedding planner and Matthew McConaughey the engaged doctor with who she falls in love with.

Twenty years later and of course we needed a reunion to celebrate.

Fortunately, the leading stars reunited for a virtual screening of the 20th anniversary of the hit film. 

During an Instagram Live event, the two actors reunited to wax nostalgia about their iconic romantic comedy from their respective homes. During the sweet gathering, Lopez and McConaughey talked about all things related to that time including their kissing scenes. Recalling one kissing moment in particular, Lopez said to McConaughey “You said, ‘Miss Lopez, I’m going to kiss you now.’ And I said, ‘OK, let’s do it. Let’s hit it.'”

Speaking about the movie’s impact on their career they both admitted that they’ve been lucky.

“When you do these movies… we’ve been lucky enough to continue doing what we love,” Lopez explained. “There are certain moments that always stick out in your head.”

“I so enjoyed working with you,” Lopez added. “We had such a nice rapport and chemistry. We were somewhat at the beginning of our careers at that time. It was exciting to be working on any movie. I still feel that way. It was a magical time. I’m such a romantic too that working on those types of movies have a real feel for me.”

Sweetly, McConaughey praised Lopez for her talent and ambition.

“You prepare so well for everything you do. I love your intentionality, I love how deliberate you are. You would have it down, you love the choreography. I love your deliberation, and the preparation you have,” he added before lamenting the fall of romcoms. “In a way, [The Wedding Planner] was the last of the rom-coms,” McConaughey said. “The rom-com doesn’t get made anymore.”

Lopez was quick to point out that she’s worked hard to ensure that rom-coms don’t die altogether. “I wanna know there’s a happily ever after, I wanna know that. Even though we know we’ve lived through a tough year, miracles still happen, love prevails, things can go right, for sure.”
