Hillary Clinton Thanks Jennifer Lopez For Empowering “Ain’t Your Mama” Video
As Gossip Cop reported, Lopez’s new clip premiered this morning. As an ode to female independence, the singer portrayed a 1950s housewife, 1960s secretary, 1970s factory worker, and 1980s businesswoman who were all fed up with being treated as an inferior gender. But the video actually started in the present day with Lopez as a frustrated news reporter.
And while many probably didn’t realize it, the words of inspiration she was listening to were actually from Clinton herself. Back in 1995, she famously said at the United Nations Fourth World Conference On Women, “Human rights are women’s rights, and women’s rights are human rights, once and for all. It’s our time to have wage equality once and for all, and equal rights for women in the United States of America. This is no simple reform. It really is a revolution.”
It’s not clear if the Former First Lady and current presidential candidate knew advance that her speech would be sampled, but she seems pretty happy about it. She tweeted to Lopez on Friday night, “@JLo thanks for this. Women are so much more than the roles they’ve been assigned. -H.” Lopez has not yet responded, but has previously spoken about supporting Clinton in the 2016 election.
