“…I feel like the song, despite the fact that it has that inspiration, it’s about a real-life topic…So it’s like it sounds happy and fun and shit, but when you get down to it, you’re talking about the differences between male and female. So the video, I wanted to make sure it had that contrast with the song with something like that..
…if you really look at it, the Salem Witch Trials are one of the many times where women have been persecuted in history…If it wasn’t allegations of magic – but sometimes that was just a cover-up – it could’ve been sexual selectiveness. If they were just saying no, they didn’t want to sleep with someone, or no, they didn’t want to marry someone. Whereas other women were being pressured into it and going through with it. Or with sexual promiscuity and that was a punishment or a judgment, or a judgment and then the punishment. But it seemed really appropriate to use it…
…you’re going to get judged anyway, so as long as you’re not hurting anyone and loving yourself, might as well do whatever you want…Whether that’s being celibate or being sexually free is your choice. Your body count is nobody’s business but your own.”
“…It’s about making women feel empowered and strong and loved and beautiful in any which way they want to look and feel…”

Described as one of her “favorite” videos she’s ever made, Jennifer Lopez says her next release will also be on the current state of women…
“That whole idea of women being queens and understanding that and treating [themselves] like that and making somebody fight for you. That’s what the concept of it was. It’s like, fight for me and then you can ask me to marry you. Then, okay, where’s my ring?”

This woman has clearly been slept on for a long ass time but that’s ok cause even back then she knew she was the shit!

Called ‘BECOMING’, the memoir will be published in 24 languages on November 13th, 2018…
“…Writing BECOMING has been a deeply personal experience. It has allowed me, for the very first time, the space to honestly reflect on the unexpected trajectory of my life. In this book, I talk about my roots and how a little girl from the South Side of Chicago found her voice and developed the strength to use it to empower others. I hope my journey inspires readers to find the courage to become whoever they aspire to be. I can’t wait to share my story…”
And they’re both equally iconic as they are empowering!
You can’t help but jam out to the Prince vibes in ‘Make Me Feel‘ and ‘Django Jane‘ is a celebration of black culture x black women strength!
