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…

We are so so grateful- @goldenglobes ! #boyhood #patriciaarquette #bestsupportingactress

“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! ?

Billboard Listed The Top 50 Latin Music Songs Of All Time And Some People Have Questions

shakira / jbalvin / Instagram

Latin music is something we all grew up with. Our parents raised us on the voices of Celia Cruz and Vicente Fernandez. We cleaned the house and entertained ourselves on road trips to these artists and they are ingrained in our DNA. Billboard recently released a list of the 50 best Latin music songs of all time and some are undoubtedly iconic and others just aren’t Latin music.

Billboard dropped their list for the 50 best Latin music songs of all time and some of them are truly classics.

Amor Prohibido” by Selena, “Guantanamera” by Celia Cruz, “El Rey” by Vicente Fernandez, and “El dia que me quieras” by Luis Miguel are just a few of the songs on the list that deserve all the praise. They are songs that transport us to our childhoods and cherished family memories.

The list also includes some newer songs that have rocked out adult worlds. “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi, “Mi Gente” by J Balvin, “El Farsante” by Ozuna, and “Tusa” by Karol G and Nicki Minaj all made the list. Not only do these songs speak to the Latino audience, they have been able to go mainstream sharing our musical culture with the world. That’s something to admire and respect because it gives our community representation like never before.

The list has proven to be just want some people have been asking for.

Tbh, this would make a pretty amazing road trip playlist if you need to pass the time. Nothing like a mix of Latin music songs playing along to give you a big, inclusive sabor of Latin America through music. A little be of Mexico and a little bit of Puerto Rico mixed in with a little bit of Colombia is pure joy and magic.

However, a lot of people are questioning the list’s inclusion of Spanish artists.

The list has various artists who are not Latino, but Spanish. There seems to be an unspoken rule in the music industry that music in Spanish is automatically Latin music. Fans have long been arguing against the industry’s blanket label of Spanish-language music automatically being considered Latin music.

Rosalía, who has arguably become the face of the debate, is listed as having one of the best Latin music songs of all time.

While Rosalía does make some good music, there is a real push to make sure the artists of Latin American roots are uplifted in Latin music. There is nothing wrong with including Rosalía in your Spanish-language playlists but Latin music fans want the distinction made that some artists aren’t Latino.

You can check out the rest of the Billboard list here.

The Long Awaited Trailer To JLo And Maluma’s ‘Marry Me’ Is Finally Here

The Long Awaited Trailer To JLo And Maluma’s ‘Marry Me’ Is Finally Here

One of the year’s biggest collaborations is starting to make more progress after being largely shut down thanks to the Coronavirus pandemic. Of course, we’re talking about the upcoming highly-anticipated Jennifer Lopez film, Marry Me, which also stars Maluma in his acting debut.

Although we still have a while to wait before the movie makes its big screen debut (not until 2021), we’re finally getting our first look at what the duo will look like on screen along with other exciting details about the project.

Marry Me finally has an official trailer and JLo and Maluma fans couldn’t be more excited.

It seems like we’ve been hyped up for this film forever – and thanks to Coronavirus, we kinda have. But finally, Universal has released the teaser for Marry Me, and it reveals a few new details about the film and its cast. Along with J.Lo, the film stars Owen Wilson, Sarah Silverman, and Colombian singer Maluma in his major feature debut.

The film was originally announced last summer and production began in October 2019 but much of it was shut down once the Coronavirus struck. The film is directed by Kat Coiro (It’s Always Sunny in PhiladelphiaDead to Me) and features original music by Lopez and Maluma, which sounds too perfect to be legal, sorry.

To celebrate the cinematic milestone, López and Maluma have reported that they are recording a full-length soundtrack of original songs. Maluma Baby is hyped from the time he’s spent in the studio with J.Lo (who wouldn’t be?), telling a reporter last year, “It’s been such an amazing experience also working, doing music. I mean we never stop.”

So here’s everything we know about the film so far.

Based on the graphic novel by Bobby Crosby, the film is described as a “modern love story about celebrity, marriage and social media.” López plays musical sensation Kat Valdez, who agrees to live-stream her marriage with her fellow superstar Bastian (Maluma — fictional or not, this is officially the hottest couple on Planet Earth and we can’t unsee it) in order to boost the sales of their new single and duet, “Marry Me.”

When she finds out that Bastian has been cheating on her, however, she freaks out and decides to marry a stranger in the audience watching: divorced high-school math teacher Charlie Gilbert (Owen Wilson), who was dragged to the event by his daughter. The unexpected sequence of events leads the two down a path toward unexpected true love.

Even with a new movie coming out, both JLo and Maluma have been hard at work in the studio.

Just last month, Maluma surprise released his latest album – PAPI JUANCHO. It’s Maluma’s fifth studio album and was produced alongside longtime collaborators Rude Boyz. Although the album features Maluma’s alter ego as the main star, it also includes several guest appearances from a number of reggaetón royals, including Justin Quiles, Lenny Tavarez, Myke Towers, and Jory Boy. PAPI JUANCHO was made during quarantine between the singer’s hometown of Medellín and Miami, his U.S. base.

Meanwhile, JLo has teased new music in recent weeks. Jennifer Lopez posted a picture with producer Ryan Tedder over the weekend in which she promised that new music is “just around the corner.”

The snap, in which Lopez is sporting dark red lips and a messy up hairdo alongside the OneRepublic leader and veteran songwriter/producer — rocking a black Mad Tasty hat — doesn’t offer much more detail about what the duo are cooking up, but Lopez seems pretty psyched.

“Can u feeeeeel it… new music just around the corner!!” Lopez wrote.

It would be a welcome return for Lopez, who has only released a remix of “If You Had My Love” so far this year, as fans wait for her to announce a release date for her as-yet-untitled ninth studio album. Lopez’s last full-length was 2014’s A.K.A., which featured the singles “I Luh Ya Papi,” “First Love” and “Booty.”
